I noticed that the Farmers' Almanac is often a day ahead of other Moon Planting calendars and apparently there are various methods and of course time zones to consider.  An in-depth discussion:
Moon calendar for growers
I find it most incredible how coherent and on topic the Marijuana growers are.  Not what I expected.
And I sure was surprised how quickly the seeds sprouted when I planted a couple days before the full moon.   Maybe because it's warmer now?
Have to test this a few times.

un 28th, 2010 | By Vigilant | Category: Vigilant Reports

Is there a deliberate effort by the government to dumb down the masses? The statement is hard to prove but there exists a great amount of data proving that the ruling elite not only tolerates, but effectively introduces policies that have a detrimental effect on the physical and mental health of the population. This series of articles looks at the many ways the modern man is being dumbed down. Part I looks at the poisons found in everyday foods, beverages and medications.
