Having an organic garden is something that will give you a lot more than just healthy food. It will give you give you an opportunity to connect with your creator that is almost religious.
Recent studies have proved the diabetes is the fastest growing disease on the planet and the simple reason why this is happening is because of processed food. Our bodies are just not able to deal with the highly processed foods that we eat on a continuous basis.
When you plant and grow your own organic vegetables you will get REAL FOOD that not only gives you all the real nutrients that your body needs but also does not have any chemicals added. If you plant your food garden correctly you will be able to harvest every day.
But it takes a bit of practice because harvesting every day on a small piece of land like your back yard is something that needs attention at least twice a week. If you want to harvest every day then you need to split up your little patch of food garden correctly.
This means that you need to plant at least once a week in order to harvest every day. So it requires a bit of planning and obviously there are many ways that you can do what is known as “companion planting”. Companion planting is something that saves space because you will get plants to grow together.
For example having corn and tomatoes planted at the same time will result in the tomato plant using the corn to support itself as it grows. But there are many examples of this and you can easily do research on the correct time and types of veggies that work well together.
There are ways of getting rid or pests without using pesticides or insecticides and you will find that most of these are very effective. Often these natural pesticides can look very good as planting Marigolds has proven to be an effective pesticide for aphids and other pests.
The maintenance of an organic garden is usually something that takes a bit of time to set up correctly and it also depends a lot on the type and quality of the soil that you have. But you will find that if you follow good advice it can be very maintenance free once you get going.
Using worm castings is a good example of getting good results as you will not only be getting the valuable worm casting added to your soil but you will get the aeration and loam effect that you want. But that all depends on the type of soil that you start with because it is completely possible to start building you own soil from scratch.
