How Simple is it to Start Your Own Garden?
Think you need to be a horticulturist or something to grow your own food? Think again, all you need is your beard and your hands. Mankind’s trusty tools will take care of the rest. Look into your fridge and scour your kitchen countertops. All of this was the result of somebody or some mass farm’s production. Agriculture is one of mankind’s first great inventions that led us to the civilization we have today. It’s an invisible constant in our life that we take for granted. Each and everyday more Americans are returning back to the garden. In backyards of suburbia nestled between fences to communal plots sprouting up between city streets. Window sills have become herb dens and rooftops are being repurposed. You’ll find the greenery is in its own revery slowly reemerging back into our lives! Growing your own vegetables is an incredibly rewarding experience. From the first touch of the spade in brown earth to the taste of the early harvest, you’ll enjoy the ride every step of the way. Now come on, let’s make your great grandfather proud.
The Journey Back to the Garden BeginsThe first thing you need to do is find a plot of land that’s suitable for growth. It can be as small or large as you’d like it. First time farmers should stick to something that they can manage. Here’s a vegetable planting schedule that will come in handy.
- Plant in a location that gets a lot of sun. The majority of vegetables need at least six direct hours of sunlight daily. The more sun you get, the more food you get.
- Plant in an area that has good soil and has proper drainage. A flat and level area of the land in your backyard or wherever you’re planting will suffice.
- Have an idea what you’re going to plant so that you can prepare adequately for proper spacing.
- Garden Hoe (or) Hoss Wheel Hoe
- A Backbone…
- Herbivore manure
- Fish and Seaweed emulsions
- Commercial organic fertilizers
