The two figures in the foreground crawl on their knees in the little vegetable garden in silent concentration. According to age-old folklore, it was believed that crops would thrive better if you planted and tended the garden under a full moon. The human figures and brown patch of earth are painted with distinct brushstrokes, in an almost naïve style. The act of cultivating appears like a ritual, and the atmosphere like that of childhood memories or a vision. Astrup painted this motif several times, and also made a woodcut entitled The Moon in May, where the landscape is represented in many different moods and colour schemes.
