If you’re looking to have a healthier diet, think about starting an organic garden. But, you need to put in a lot of effort to grow your garden effectively. You probably do not know how to go about growing an organic garden on your own.
One way to ensure efficiency while gardening is to keep your tools close by. Use a bucket large enough to hold all your equipment or wear pants with multiple pockets. Keep all of the tools you use and your gloves handy and will help you work more efficiently.
A cost-efficient way to water your garden is by collecting rainwater. Use barrels or buckets to catch water for your garden. This will save you from using your home source when watering your organic garden. Rainwater is free. You will also find that rainwater is a natural friend to plants.
An excellent organic spray which can get rid of the pests in your organic garden is one that mixes garlic, chives, or onions with water. This concoction is easily mixed. Just peel some onion, garlic and chives. Chop it very finely and mix in a half a cup of water. Allow the mixture to sit for a time then strain. Place the water in a spray bottle.
Try to work in your garden at least a short time each day. No matter what your schedule is like, you should be able to fit in small things that will help you avoid having an overwhelming amount of work all at once. If you are outside with your dog, pluck a few weeds while your dog is taking care of his business.
