Planting by the Stars - Methods
At its most basic, similar seeds are planted in similar soils at different
times. (More details on the 'experimental procedure' can be found here.) Differences
in the outcomes or harvest of these comparable plantings are recorded and submitted
to this site on the page called 'Submit
by using the results sheet available
The information will be collected in a database for analysis.
Computer software has been developed to look for patterns
when comparing results of any activity which takes place at a given time
and place, and whose results can be evaluated.
Initially we can only rely on those results which have been noted and
submitted by those already interested in this 'chrono-biology'. These
will be re-evaluated by the computer software we have garnered and developed.
We hope many,
including yourself, will add results as the project gathers momentum.
We will encourage gardeners and farmers, schools
and colleges, to make experiments to increase the information available. Perhaps you can
assist by letting interested parties know of this work. This way we intend
to make the recommendations increasingly authoritative.
