How to choose a good day for work in May
The answer to the question of choosing the right time for work is important to any summer resident.
For beginners, the question often arises: “What should I look at first? On the calendar, the weather, or the plant itself? ” Let's try to figure out several factors.
If you are working with an eye on the lunar calendar, then you need to follow it. That is, do not work on the full moon and new moon, plant root crops on the waning moon, and the rest of the crops on the growing moon.
Next, we focus on the weather. Even if a favorable day falls, but the weather is bad, then you do not need to work. For example, do not plant seedlings in early May if the air temperature drops to almost zero at night. The seedlings will simply die, and you, in turn, will not receive any harvest.
In addition, it is necessary to build on the characteristics of the culture and a particular variety. Late-ripening varieties should be tried to plant early so that they have time to bear fruit before the onset of autumn cold weather.
It is also necessary to say about such a nuance as employment. It often happens that the main work does not allow transplanting seedlings into flower beds or planting potatoes on favorable days according to the lunar calendar. Well, in this case, do the work when you have free time, or weather conditions allow. For example, it is better to plant potatoes in the wrong lunar phase than to wait for a favorable day, as a result reaching the end of the month and in the fall left without a crop.
Thus, the most important thing is to be guided in choosing common sense.
Bad days for work in the garden in May 2020
