You can purchase one more year of moon data for $10 and import that into the program. You could also download the free trial, but I do appreciate your encouragement for my work.

The moon data goes from July to June to cover their growing season. The time zone and units of measurement are set for Sydney, but can be changed. The moons grow from the left, not the right.

The current version is 2.1.0, with 2017 dates.

Significant updates to the program. Shows what can be planted inside and outside in one view. Easier tracking of succession plantings. It is recommended that all past users update to this version.

Sorry, not at this time, but maybe someday.
