An organic garden is more than just shunning the use of chemicals.
It’s going back to the natural way of growing produce, which is healthier and better for you than supermarket produce.
There should be nothing hippie-like, new-age like, or mystic-like about organic gardening. It simply means, natural. Natural is the way produce was grown before they became saturated with chemicals, pesticides, and hormones.
What to use for fertilizer in your natural garden? Kitchen scraps, manure, and bone meal are a few examples. With natural fertilizers, your fruits and vegetables will taste delicious.
Do you know what the use of man-made chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers do to our environment, not to mention the food itself?
Top soil is depleted and becomes infertile, pests become immune to the chemicals, which means that only stronger chemicals will kill the pests next time around.
It’s common sense that chemicals are dangerous to our body and to the environment, yet we still continue to buy mass-produced agriculture.
Well, now we don’t have to. It’s time to grow your own natural garden. You don’t need a lot of ground to do it. A small patch or a few pots is all you need to have your own vegetables and fruit.
We all know the connection between food and health, correct? Eating healthier food means we’ll have a healthier body.
Vitamins and minerals are more plentiful in organic food, and they taste better.
Below are the secrets to organic gardening:
Keep your soil organic. This means use natural fertilizers like grass clippings, leaves, mulch, etc. You don’t need chemicals to keep your soil fertilized. Good food has been grown for centuries before chemical pesticides came along. Keep your soil natural.
Organic gardens help the environment. By not using chemicals to grow your own food, you not only help yourself, you keep the environment safe for insects and animals and wildlife, all of which will enjoy the natural habitat you create.
Planting your rows close together to conserve water, protect the soil from the sun, and help stop weeds from growing and overtaking your plants.
Rotate your crops each year, to keep the pests and diseases on their toes and under control. Be sure to give your plants rainwater, and be sure to pull the weeds, which can choke and kill your plants.
Another idea you can try is indoor gardening. This is great for just a couple of plants, or a row of herbs for cooking. For this you may need a grow light. If you’re unfamiliar with them, you may want to visit Lumi Growth to help you find the right one for your plants.
Save your seeds so that you will have natural seeds to plant next time. Share the natural seeds with friends and families. Encourage everyone you know to use natural seeds instead of store-bought seeds that have been genetically modified or chemically engineered.
When in doubt, always go natural when it comes to your garden.
