Organic Vegetable Garden

You don’t need to use pesticides and other chemicals in your organic vegetable garden. You can have a lovely garden and lawn organically without harming the environment in the process.

Here are some tips when growing your own organic vegetable garden:
• Seeds can be bought from Home Depot, Lowes, your gardening store, or given to you from friends who already have organic vegetable gardens.
• You don’t need a big backyard to have your own garden: A 2 foot by 2 foot area is just enough to grow tomatoes, carrots, or whatever vegetables you like.
• When using fertilizers, be careful because they have a great deal of chemicals in it. The two main chemicals in fertilizers are nitrates and phosphates. If you have asthma, fertilizers may trigger your respiratory problems. Fertilizers are also linked to cancer so definitely minimize the use of them.
o What you can do instead is switch to natural compost. Compost can be bought and you can even make it yourself.
• Healthy soil will give the roots of your organic vegetables more of a chance of survival. You’ll also need less water the more healthy the soil is.
• Keep your garden on ground level. You don’t want the water to run off into other areas and therefore not providing enough water to your organic vegetable garden. This will also conserver water
• When washing your vegetables in the sink, keep a pail in the sink so you can catch the water. That water can then be reused to re-water your organic vegetable garden
Keep in mind the seasonal vegetables and make sure you are planting them in the right season. If you want to keep the garden indoors, note that you’ll attract bugs and insects inside as well. It’s better to keep it outside because then it’ll also get enough sunlight.

Having your own organic vegetable garden is not only healthier for you, but it is also economically friendly. You’ll save money in the long run from having to buy expensive vegetables at the supermarket. You will also save gas money having to drive to and from the store.
