There are many reasons to learn beginner organic gardening. Creating an organic garden is simple and easy and does not require as much work as you would think. A little know-how goes a long way.
As an Organic Gardener myself, I hope these tips will help you create your own organic garden.
The first thing is to choose a location for your vegetable garden. Choose a location that receives the most sun through out the day. Plants love the sun. Determine where the sun rises and sets so you can choose where to plant accordingly to size so that no plant shades another.
There are different types of beds you may want to create such as a raised bed or create a border. Till your soil with organic soil conditioner or organic soil to create the best possible soil for your vegetables to thrive.
After you decide on the location and size, it’s time to choose what vegetables you want to plant now that you are learning beginner organic gardening. Depending on your location and size choose your plants accordingly and what you will consume.
I made the mistake of planting too many different plants for the space I had. I had cucumber and watermelon vines all over, even up my deck. Squash plants grow huge and produce lots of squash! Remember your plants will grow so plant your seedlings taking into consideration that they will get bigger. I had so many vegetables I was giving away tomatoes, eggplant and squash to my neighbors.
For smaller beds, you can plant taller plants such as tomatoes, string beans and eggplants. You can even use a planter for your tomatoes or even the new topsy turvy hangers.
After you have planted your seedlings, we are so excited to watch our organic vegetable grow. It’s very rewarding to see the fruits of our labor flourish. I checked my garden every day with growing excitement and beamed with pride at each new flower that would eventually become a vegetable.
Water your organic garden every day. I water in the morning, works for me and prevents fungus. If your plants are in a planter, they tend to dry out quicker, so keep a sharp eye on them.
Every garden especially a vegetable garden tends to get some pests, such as slugs and beetles, use natural and organic pesticides for your garden.
