Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

All week we've been discussing the theory of planting your garden by the signs of the moon over on the Blind Pig & The Acorn site ( you can read about it Planting By The Signs and How To Plant By The Signs). In Appalachia the folklore of the Zodiac Calender goes way beyond when to plant your corn-it sometimes serves as a guideline for everyday activities as well.

~Schedule your next hair cut under the sign of Sagittarius, Aquarius, or Libra-and your hair will grow back faster and thicker.

~Plan your next hunting trip during the sign of Taurus and you'll have better luck.

~Cut firewood in the old of the moon-it'll dry faster-and burn better.

~Leo is the sign for love.

~Fence posts stay tight if set during the old of the moon.

~Paint during a dry sign like Leo-and the paint will last longer

~Wean a child from it's bottle or pacifier during Capricorn, Pisces, or Sagittarius

~Quit habits on the 2nd day of Sagittarius-the new moon-or in Pisces

~Never shingle a roof during the waxing of the moon or the ends will turn up

~Always slaughter when the signs are in the knees or feet-in the last quarter of the moon

~Cut hay in the old of the moon-in the waning days

Got anything to add to the list? Ever try any of the ones I listed? I'd love to hear about it-leave me a comment.

p.s. Signs also dictate when you do your canning/preserving-I'll discuss that whole issue later in the summer.
