The inimitable Farmer’s Almanac promotes Planting by the Moon for above and below-ground crops at the start of the season. Old-timers insist that the practice results in a tastier, healthier harvest.

Plant crops from the day the Moon is new until the day it is full. Plant flowering bulbs and vegetables below ground from the day after the moon is full until the day before the moon is new again.

Plant fruit trees in the fall when temperatures are cooler and less stressful on the trees. Many professional arborists insist that pears are the easiest fruit tree to grow.

Wheat Ridge promotes care of newly planted trees by urging citizens to water newly planted trees along the public greenbelt. The city provides buckets that can be filled with creek water to douse the trees.
