Potato Planting before the Spring Equinox

Now that Spring Equinox is approaching, it is time for potato planting. Usually, in Japan, it is recommended to plant potatoes before the spring equinox.

This year, we chose a type called Shadow Queen that has a purple color, which means high in polyphenol.

That is one perk of gardening you get to choose types of vegetables to optimize nutrition.

Another benefit of gardening is Shindofuji. You become more aware of the season and live according to the natural rhythm.

Many people talk about circadian rhythm, and I think seasonal rhythm is as critical in biohacking. Your body is set based on the season.

The time of sunrise and sunset change, which changes your time of morning sun exposure and evening sun exposure. Since you spend more time gardening in spring, you would need less time to exercise.
