Thanks for doing this!

I have bought the Gardening by the Moon calendars for several years, and managed to lose the 2010 calendar in Nov. when I took it with me on a trip, since I keep all my notes on it.

darius, Hi glad to help.

Can you do any gardening in VA in this weather that you have over there in winter?

Do you have a poly tunnel or a green house?

So.App.Mtns., United States(Zone 5b)

I can only wish for a tunnel or GH!

Next year, if I can get anyone to help me (I'm 70), I'll have a cold frame with a poly cover set-up to extend my fall season. We've had several frosts, but kale and brussels sprouts would still be okay IF I had planted any. The ground hasn't frozen yet, just a frosty top layer a few nights... but it's coming colder soon. Last frost is mid-to-late May.

I can only imagine how long is your cold weather season.
If I was around I'd help

Christina, I just tell everyone it gives me more time to develop a contemplative nature!

Temuco, Chile(Zone 9b)

Oh, yes and of course I feel you're right, as time goes by, and our lives are so full, and busy, and chaotic we have little time to watch and see, but really see..

contemplation, that is altogether another level !
