One of the best ways to improve your diet and make it healthier is to start and maintain an organic garden. Much patience and effort are required though, in order to produce a successful and flourishing organic garden. You probably have many questions about how to accomplish your gardening goals.
When you start planting your organic tomatoes, stagger your planting time by planting two groups of plants, three weeks apart. This allows your harvest to grow in stages. You will also prevent your vegetables from being ruined all at once by an unexpected frost or an infestation.
Calibrate how much you water based upon the time of the year and the weather conditions. The amount of water you need to give your plants depends on soil type, quality of water and time of day. In some cases, you can’t water because of climate issues. You can’t water the leave of your plants during humid, warm weather–it’ll promote the growth of leaf fungus. Instead, the roots should be thoroughly watered.
Your children can help you with your garden. A garden can be a great learning experience for your children, and it gives you a chance to bond while producing healthy food.
Plant some organic garlic. Plant individual cloves of garlic in the early spring or fall in moist, well-drained soil. Put them an inch or two down into the soil with the pointed end up placed about four inches apart. You can use the tops of the garlic shoots instead of scallions or chives. You will know when to harvest the garlic, because the tops will gradually turn brown. Allow the sun to dry out the bulbs for a few days until the skin gets hard. The garlic may then be stored within a cool location tied together in bunches or simply loose.
As should be obvious by now, organic gardening requires a bit of forethought and planning before implementation. It also holds true, that if you want to see results, you need to keep putting effort into it. Use the tips presented here, along with some ideas of your own, and you can be a thriving organic gardener in no time
