Do any of you biodynamic gardeners and farmer users of our site use a planetary planting guide that relates the outer planets, Mars Jupiter and Saturn and perhaps other planets to types of fruit trees and when to work with them. This would also relate to the optimum impact times of their forces at conjunctions etc.
I know Brian Keats Astro calendar, partly deals with this, but I have not seen any planetary calendar that deals specifically with fruit tree types, ie such as stone fruit, berries, pome fruit, etc and when its ideal in relation to those planets to either plant, cultivate or harvest. One could simply do this on a fruit day which is already incorporated into our web site, but more impact from these outer planets can be gained by working more closely with their movements.
Look forward to hearing back
Hello Peter - great topic.
I have not done anything with this to date but am most interested. Alana Moore touched on this in her book "stone age farming for the 21st century"
I believe the planets relate to medical and mineral characteristics and fruit types may well come in there. I am moved to ask about it and will report back if I find anything.
