    The full moons have different names. This is the planting moon. Best known is the harvest moon.

    Following up olddog1:

    Full moon names

    The full moon, as observed from Earth on a clear night.It is traditional to assign special names to each full moon of the year, though the rules that determine the name for a given month’s full moon has changed over time (e.g., the blue moon). An ancient method of assigning names is based upon seasons and quarters of the year. For instance, the Egg Moon (the full moon before Easter) would be the first moon after March 21, and the Lenten Moon would be the last moon on or before March 21. Modern practice, however, is to assign the traditional names based on the Gregorian calendar month when the full moon falls. This method frequently results in the same name as the older method would, and is far more convenient to use.

    The following table gives the traditional English names for each month’s full moon, the names given by Algonquian peoples in the northern and eastern United States, other common names, and Hindu.10

    Am I the only one who picked up on the irony of reading the “Old Farmer’s Almanac” on a smartphone?

    Every food we eat today, except for wild flora and wild fauna, has been genetically modified. Do you really think that the corn humans ate 100 years ago is just like it’s wild ancestors?
