My favourite fantasy planet of all time! This is my version of some of Terry Pratchett's character's and how I see them, plus the wonderful Discworld....a planet on the back of four elephants, on the back of a giant Turtle....of course!
Yes, there really IS a Salamony Asteroid! It was discovered in 1995 and named for my sister Sandra, who at the time was creative director for Sky Publishing. She was presented with a potato having roughly the same shape of her asteroid. The potato quickly sprouted, which made me think of the possibilities. Perhaps on her asteroid, you could ask it to sprout any vegetable, any time, to the desired degree of ripeness! Imagine fresh sweet corn, asparagus, and baby carrots ON THE SAME DAY! I further imagine this as a place where the clouds record your favorite moments and retain them as long as you want. Finally, you can swim at night and be serenaded by an orchestra formed by constellation instruments, the sound being produced when the stars twinkle. Yeah, I think I could live there!
The moon phases as well its position in relation to the different zodiac signs has an affect on the plants´ growth. There are four elements - earth, water, air and fire, that correspond to the zodiac signs. Each of these elements is responsible for the best crop of different kinds of plants, so there is a different day for planting and gardening each of them. In the illustration you can see the relation between the moon, zodiac signs and the plants for each phase.
