Full Harvest Moon Planting
Here are highlights of the Harvest Moon for September 2014. The Almanac's monthly Moon guide keeps you informed about full Moon names, Moon phase dates, and Best Days by the Moon.
Full Moon Names

The full Moon nearest the autumnal equinox is called the Harvest Moon (see dates below). This Moon is not just the full Moon that occurs at the time of the harvest. It is the full Moon that actually helps the harvest by providing more light at the right time than other full Moons do. 

In years when the Harvest Moon falls in October, the September full Moon is usually known as the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, because it is the time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley.  


Traditionally in Broward County, Florida,
September 15th is a BIG seed Planting Day!

If you're in South Florida, stop by and see us at the Yellow Green Farmer's Market in
Booth #281 Saturday & Sunday
from 8am-4pm

Or you can always place your order online
and we ship!

Best Days in September 2014

Below are the best days for activities, based on the Moon's sign and phase in September.

For Harvesting:
  • Aboveground crops: 4, 5
  • Belowground crops: 12, 13
For Setting Eggs:
  • 5-7, 14, 15
For Fishing:
  • 1-8, 24-30

See Best Days for more activities.

  • Usually the Moon rises about 50 minutes later each day, but around the time of the autumnal equinox, it rises only around 30 minutes in the United States-even less in Canada.
  • Farmers can take advantage of the moonlight at this time of year and continue their day's work in harvesting crops.
