Planting vegetables by the moon in November

Are you a faithful gardener that plants by the moon or have you ever been curious about it and wanted to try it? Planting by the moon is a longtime Old Farmer's Almanac tradition. According to this practice, cycles of the Moon affect plant growth. Here's a list of dates (according to Almanac's website) that occur in November for planting by the moon's phases.

This one is for Region 1 (which the Houston area falls into along with much of Zone 9)

November 11-25, 2015 ... Wheat, winter (A)

Gather your supplies, order your seeds if you don't already have some on hand (winter wheat) and get ready to plant!
