Wouldn’t you love an Organic Vegetable Garden?
Your own Veggie Patch to provide you with the freshest, tastiest veggies, nutrients not chemicals for the kid’s school lunchbox, do your bit for the environment and save money? What better excuse to spend more time outside mucking around in the garden...
Think you need a degree in worms and compost? Not so.
Stick with me and you'll be eating your own home grown veggies in no time! I'll share with you some great organic gardening information and some Vegetable Gardening Hints and Tips to make your organic vegetable garden part of your lifestyle.
Starting a veggie patch from scratch can seem a bit daunting, but that's why I'm here, to make it a bit easier for you.
What is Organic anyway? It can quite simply be gardening without harmful chemicals. The way it was done before chemicals were invented (almost so old it’s new again!).
But it's really more than that. You will be working with nature not against it. You will be conserving water, improving your Organic Garden Soil and looking after beneficial insects.
Start small if you want, I guarantee you’ll get addicted so then we can get more involved, we’ll make Compost and check out worm farms, get rid of the weeds and don't forget herbs! Organic Herb Gardening is so easy will add so much to your garden. Fresh herbs for your cooking and companion plants for your veggies.
If you don't have room for full size fruit trees, try a Dwarf Fruit Tree or three. These are great for tropical areas to as it's easier to control nasty insects like fruit fly.
What about raising chickens? We have three chickens and they're a great addition to the garden. The kids loving collecting the eggs and the eggs taste so much better.
If you have a small garden you can still have a veggie patch using Container Gardening ideas. Use ideas such as Vertical Gardening, Patio Gardening, Indoor Gardening and Growing Potatoes in a container.
If you're just starting out, go at your own pace; don’t try to do it all at once. Bookmark this site and come back when you’re ready to move on to your next organic vegetable garden project.
So what are we waiting for? Let's get those seeds (organic of course!), dig up a veggie patch or put in that raised garden bed and let's get planting. Oh before you grab that shovel, get a cup of tea and keep looking around my site; I'd love to have you stay for awhile.
