We can use the moon's path to determine the right time to harvest for conservation purposes :
- To harvest roots or tubers : a descending moon is preferable
- To harvest leaves, fruit, seeds and flowers : choose an ascending moon
The waxing and waning phases also have an influence on the crops :
- When the moon is waxing : better for preservation
- During a waning moon : better taste and increased healing properties of medicinal plants
