Now that you’ve reached the end of this article, you know exactly what it takes to create an organic garden. Even the best information needs to be implemented correctly, however, so be very cognizant of that fact. If you keep this information in mind, you should be able to grow a great organic garden in no time. Keep plastic bags handy to cover your muddy gardening shoes. This way, you won’t break momentum by fussing with your shoes, and you’ll be quickly back in the garden to finish your work.
You can make a raised bed with untreated wood, brick, or stone. Be sure to use wood that is naturally resistant to rotting and that has not been treated. Cypress, locust and cedar usually work best. In a vegetable garden, never use treated wood, as the chemicals can leach out into the soil and food crops. If you are already using treated lumber, you can use plastic liners, or a different barrier, in order to protect your garden. When setting up an organic garden, plant tomatoes three weeks apart. The reason for this is because it helps to prevent the entire harvest from producing all at once. Also, if something goes wrong during one harvest, all your tomatoes won’t be ruined.
Know your organic garden and when the plants are needing water. The style of hose known as a soaker would be most effective for this purpose. This can help you water the base of your plants and reduce moisture loss by evaporation. The early morning hours are the best time to water plants.
Organic gardening has been around for a while. Much longer than chemical gardening. Native Americans helped the European settlers plant successful crops by placing a fish together with seeds in the soil. Consider making your own compost pile as a means of making your own fertilizer. You will be recycling, decreasing your amount of trash and making your garden more fertile.
