“Historically, the Native Americans who lived in the area that is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons.
Each full Moon name was applied to the entire month in which it occurred. These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.
May’s Full Flower Moon, also called Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon, marks a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.”
~So says the old farmers writing the Old Farmers Almanac. Apparently January has a Full Wolf Moon, February, a Full Snow Moon,April has a Full Pink Moon,like that one, sounds pretty to me. Get this, November is a Full Beaver Moon. He he he. I know…. They don’t call me dirty girl for nothing!Not to stray off topic here but as I sit here in my bed, I can see the old man in the moon winking at me outside my window. I think he is telling me something. Yes!! Go girl, get to the garden store, buy more, get planting… anyone that knows me can attest to the fact that already did. I did ALOT! I can’t help myself. It’s an addiction. Guess I could have a worse one! Yup, so here is a little snap of the mere beginnings of a full moon strawberry patch. BTW~ Junes’ full moon is a strawberry full moon. for real.
