It's WAY Too Soon - Daylight Savings Time

This Sunday, March 14 is the kickoff of Daylight Savings Time.  We're supposed to 'spring' forward in the middle of March.  It's just cruel.  How about a little factoid to go with.  Here's a quote from the Old Farmer's Almanac for gardeners, you eternal optimists:
"Planting by the Moon?  Above-ground crops are planted during the light of the Moon (new to full); below-ground crops are planted during the dark of the Moon (from the day it is full to the day before it is new again). Planting is done in the daytime; planting at night is optional!"
I hope this clears things up for you.
