The First full moon of Spring 2010.  A renewal of the growing season.  My father told me that you had to wait one month to plant summer crops from the date of the Spring Moon.  Plant by  the light of the moon he said, fertilize with fish emulsion.

I never once saw my dad plant his crops at night. But that fish emulsion sure did reek.
