    Moon Garden

    I am starting my garden this weekend. It has been cold in the northeast. My organic farmer friend had suggested I wait until nights are above 50 degrees. I think we are finally in the clear. Some good moon planting info below:

    Many gardeners swear by the idea of planting by the phase of the moon. The first quarter is when they plant crops which bloom above ground — spinach and lettuce, cucumbers and corn, to name a few. The second quarter, leading up to the full moon, is the time to plant above-ground seed crops like beans, watermelons, squash and tomatoes. During the third quarter, the week following the full moon, root vegetables like carrots and potatoes should go in, as well as bulb flowers. Finally, the last quarter of the waning moon is the time to avoid planting altogether — instead,
    work on garden maintenance such as tilling and weeding.

    FYI today is a First Quarter Moon. Click here to check daily.

    Permission to Feel

    “If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different so that you can feel good. You would free yourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world, or control your mate, or control your child. You are the only one who creates your reality. For no one else can think for you, no one else can do it. It is only you, every bit of it you.”
    – Esther Hicks

    Daring Adventure Day

    Live life to the fullest today!

    “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.:” 0 Helen Keller

    Raw Lemon Balls

    This is the most amazing raw vegan desert!

    Ingredients: 1 cup chopped pitted dates 1 cup raw walnuts 1 cup sesame seeds 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest 1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut flakes

    Method: Place dates, walnuts, sesame seeds, lemon juice and zest in a food processor. Pulse and blend until completely mixed. The mixture will be slightly sticky. With dampened hands, roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls. Roll in coconut and chill until ready to serve.

    Makes about 18. Enjoy!

    Peace, Love & Happiness,
