I know what you’re thinking: gardening is too hard, it takes too much time, and how can anyone like me go about growing a vegetable garden when I know nothing about the subject? This is most people’s view on gardening, and is completely wrong! Gardening is easy and anyone can do it!
Imagine needing to make a salad, and walking out to your garden where you have fresh lettuce growing. You pick a head of lettuce, get it washed, and then realize you need some more ingredients.
Back out to the garden you pick some tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, onion, and peppers as well. Throwing this in your salad, you realize you are eating the tastiest salad you have ever had in your life! This is because you are growing the highest quality of fruits and vegetables, as well as getting it as fresh as possibly can be!
How to Start a Garden
But how can you start a garden? It’s simple! All you need is a spot of ground, some water, seeds, and some determination.
Start with tilling your garden. You will want to mix up the soil nice and good to mix the nutrients equally throughout the garden. This is also good as it gives the soil some shaking, which will allow your plants to grow deep roots.
Next, you can then make rows in your garden, and begin gently placing your seeds throughout your rows and covering it back up with dirt. Once the rows are covered, spread some fertilizer over the rows and begin to gently sprinkle some water over all of your rows.
It is also important to note here that not all seeds and fertilizers are created equal! I personally prefer to get Organic seeds, fertilizer, and pesticide.
Getting organic seeds for your garden allows you to have the most natural gardening experience possible. Not only will organic seeds taste better, but they are also better for the good bugs in your garden! Bugs don’t like non-organic pants!
As for fertilizer, be sure to get an organic fertilizer with plenty of nutrients. If you put the nutrients in the soil, the nutrients will be in your plants. If the nutrients are in your plants, they will be in your body! It’s like taking a vitamin supplement by eating delicious food out of your garden!
Being Careful with Pesticides
As for pesticide, be sure not to use chemicals and other hazardous material. Not only is it horrible for the environment, the bugs don’t like it and your plants don’t like it either. Additionally, it has been proven to present health defects in a human body, so try to find something organic to keep those pests off!
Growing a garden is fun and easy! Once you get out there, you’ll realize that it really comes down to making sure your plants are getting plenty of water and are staying weed free! So go ahead, plant your garden in that empty space in your back yard, and start enjoying all the wonderful health and life benefits that a garden brings!
