Watch for the New Moon at sunset on these upcoming dates:
West Coast of U.S.
Moonwatch, Wednesday, May 12, 2021
We will be watching for the moon on May 12, but expect it will be seen at twilight from any location in North America on that date.
What we saw:
On April 20, 2021 the barley in California was not ready. It was grass, 12-inches, that had not even emerged from the stalk. It had a long way to go before it was ready “to put the sickle to the grain.” We will return to the fields again in the second week of May.

A note about barley, Spring 2019: The Biblical New Year for 2019 was on Monday May 6.
On April 17, 2019 the barley was ripening, some was still in flower and some was still grass.
But on Thursday May 23, 3 days before the wave sheaf, the heads were full and the field was almost ready for the harvest.
The Bible tell us the month begins later than you think. Find out why.
