There are several ways people grow their own gardens but
the one that is becoming more popular is called organic
Organic gardening is gardening naturally, without the help
of commercial fertilizers and other chemicals that are used
to help produce grow bigger faster. Growing fruits,
vegetables and herbs naturally may take some time but it
can be done.
When growing organic fruits and vegetables you may
need to be patient and creative but you can grow all your
fruits, vegetables and herbs organically.
There are other ways to get the same affect that
fertilizers give you. Taking care of the soil requires you
to work on it several times throughout the year so when you
are ready to plant you can ensure that your soil is rich
enough in vitamins and minerals to help seeds and plants
Composting can help fertilize your garden and make your
fruits and vegetables very healthy and hearty from the vitamins
and minerals. You will find simple tricks to use in order to
make your garden grow better.
When you teach your children to grow organically they can
enjoy the fact that they can pick fresh fruits and
vegetables right off the vine and eat it right away. With
chemicals you must wash your food thoroughly in order to
get the chemical off of the food.
You may find that inhaling the chemicals may also cause you
to feel bad and make it difficult to breathe if you are
suffering from allergies. Plants can grow great on its own
they just need time and a little tender loving care.
There are ways to take care of the bugs that might come into
your garden without the use of chemicals. For a good source of
information on gardening without chemicals look for America's
Master Gardener, Jerry Baker . He has many good books on
gardening using things that you have around the house already.
This is one of his many tonics that he uses with great success:
Dead Bug Brew
1/2 cup of dead insects ( the more, the merrier!)
1 tbsp of liquid dish soap
1 tbsp of cayenne pepper
2 cups of water
Put all of the ingredient in an old blender ( and I mean
really old), and puree the heck out of them. Strain out the
pulp using cheesecloth or panty hose. Dilute the remaining brew
at a rate of 1/4 cup of brew per 1 cup of water. Apply with a handheld
mist sprayer to flowers, vegetables, and shrubs to the point of runoff.
Check them out for yourself. He is very entertaining as he give the
information. Enjoy the read, we have.
