Organic Vegetable Gardening
Grow the Organic Way
When you are growing edibles, growing organically gives you peace of mind. Growing organic vegetables is a great way to put nutritious, delicious food on your table. It's really simple too. The best part about it is that you control what goes into your garden, so you can feel good about what you'll get out of it. These days it's easy to find everything you need to grow your organic garden. The materials you're looking for are probably available at your local garden center. Remember to check the label to ensure the product is certified for organic gardening.
Going organic doesn't limit your choices of what you grow. A wide range of vegetables are available to you when you choose to go organic. Just think of the pride you will have when you serve an organically grown salad that you grew yourself. When buying seedlings, be sure you're getting organic plants by choosing Bonnie Plants® Organics, which are certified as USDA Organic. Another option is to grow your vegetables from seed. It's easy, and you can feel sure about your vegetables that way. One way to get a start on the season is to plant your seeds indoors in flats or paper cups, and move them out when the weather warms up. Just like us, seeds like to stay warm and cozy indoors until it gets warm outdoors.
What Is Organic Gardening?
Generally speaking, the word "organic" means that it has carbon in its structure somewhere. When the term is used for gardening, it usually means that the soil, plant food, and other components come from things that are or were once alive. So you are growing a living thing from living things. Pretty neat, huh?
How to Prepare Your Organic Garden
Preparation is key. So don't skip this step. You can amend the soil in your yard with organic components to set the stage for a spectacular organic vegetable garden. Organic soil, such as Nature's Care® Organic Garden Soil with Water Conserve®, can be mixed in with your existing soil. You can also improve your soil with products such as Nature's Care® Organic Blood Meal and Nature's Care® Organic Bone Meal. It's easy to be green!
