Q and A: planting by the moon and storing whole wheat pasta

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Planting by the moon

Do you plant by the moon? When I do, sometimes the weather is bad so when I wait for the weather to clear, the time has passed.

Julie F.
Sunnyside, Washington

No, I don’t. I plant when I need to, regardless. I know people who swear that planting by the moon is the only way to grow a good garden, but what we do works for us and I have no complaints. — Jackie

Storing whole wheat pasta

Can I use my vacuum sealer for whole wheat pasta/spaghetti? How long would it last?

Dawn Guido
Marshfield, Missouri

Yes, you can. It will last much longer than if you didn’t use the vacuum sealer, but I can’t give you specifics as each brand/food had different ingredients. — Jackie
