The Beaver Moon

moonWith the second full moon of the fall season upon us at the Veggie-Bed, marks the end of our traditional growing season. Folklore has it that the northern and eastern Native American Algonquin tribes (the indigenous peoples of the Americas) so-called the full moon of November the Beaver Moon. Beavers are mainly nocturnal and become active building their winter dams under the light of the full moon, from which the name was derived.
