One of the keys philosophies that are needed to plan your fall garden is the days-to-harvest. Days-to-harvest is the estimated number of days that are needed to grow a plant from seed until it is harvestable. It is an estimation because of all of the outside factors that can affect how a plant grows. The estimated days-to-harvest information is found on the back of every seed packet and sometimes on the back of stakes found in seedling packs.
I have an Ever Bamboo Room Deodorizer pack in our bedroom, tucked away on a nightstand shelf. Our bedroom gets a lot of traffic because the main bathroom is only reachable through our room. Collectively, we also throw clothes and shoes around until someone (like me) remembers to clean up. We have noticed a significant change is the way our bedroom smells, especially when the bedroom door is opened while I’m cooking dinner. There is no cooking odors noticeable in the room and overall has a fresher smell to it. I plan to move this packet to my son’s room though, as it is smaller and odor changes will be significantly more noticeable in there.
To rid your organic garden of bugs, try using a mixture of dish soap and water. Mix 2 tablespoons of dish soap into a gallon of water. Use a spray bottle to spray the foliage and soil around the plants. Before spraying your whole garden or even a whole plant, test the effect of the mixture on a few leaves and wait a few days before doing the rest.
When starting your organic garden, don’t forget to plant companion plants. Companion plants are like very friendly neighbors. They can enrich the soil and keep pests away from your other plants. By planting them together, you can avoid the use of harmful pesticides or artificial fertilizer products.
First of all, you need to know what Organic Gardening is. To give a basic definition it is when you only use natural items to help your plants grow. This means that you don’t use any type of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers to try and get your garden going. Many people will actually take kitchen scraps and other wastes to make their own composts so that they can fertilize. This entire process of being organic usually does take a bit longer than most other types of gardening but there are a lot of additional benefits that come with it.
If you attach a photo of your business, I’ll make every effort to use it. Please identify any employees in the photos and use this as a “warm fuzzy” PR opportunity by telling my readers a little about your business and the role the pictured employees play in it. All photos will be resized to no larger than 320 x 240 pixels.
Lasagna gardening is a method of gardening that involves preparing the garden bed in layers. The use of compost, cardboard, straw and other organic matter is installed in a garden bed one layer at a time. Once the layers are installed you plant your plants as you would in a traditional garden or raised bed garden.
What they are familiar with are the less healthy handouts of chips, canned foods, and packaged cereals. So there has to be some bridge or transitional way to let the hungry know that fresh produce will be coming and show people how to prepare the foods–for example, a salad of chopped kale and carrots with diced raw yellow squash in a lemon juice dressing. Otherwise, what would a lot of the poor do with a bunch of kale, spinach, and broccoli? They’d be familiar with chips, popcorn, soda, eggs, cheese, and dehydrated potatoes or burgers. So somebody needs to show people not used to fresh produce various affordable ways to make it tasty.
