How-To for Organic Home Gardening

The quest for safer, more nutritious produce has turned many on to the idea of organic gardening. Many gardeners are pleased to learn just how easy and economical organic gardening can be. Your own backyard may make the perfect setting for your very own organic garden that you can start with just a few basic principles. We've got the steps to get you started, so you will be ready to plant your own crops as soon as the next growing season rolls around. The first step in beginning your own organic home gardening experience is to understand exactly what we mean by organic gardening. An organic garden is one that does not use chemical fertilizers, pesticides or synthetic ingredients of any kind. Instead of chemicals, elements from nature are called upon to feed and protect crops so they can grow the way they were originally intended. An organic crop is one that is safe and healthy for your family and did not harm the environment in any way as it grew to harvest. A productive organic home gardening experience usually begins with a patch of soil filled with important nutrients that will help your crops to thrive. Healthy organic soil is enriched with compost that can easily be created at home by using scraps of food, grass clippings and coffee grounds.You can collect these compost ingredients throughout the year in your own makeshift bin, turning the pile regularly to keep the compost process going. Make sure your compost pile does not get any diseased plants, meat or dairy products or animal waste. When spring rolls around, you can incorporate your organic compost into your garden soil before spading it up and getting it ready for spring. A soil test can also be done on a small sample of your bed to ensure your soil is rich in all the nutrients your crops will need to thrive. Soil testing can either be done at home or by taking a sample to your local nursery or extension office for analysis. Preparing the soil is probably the most important step in the entire process, since healthy soil reduces the risk of pests or diseases harming your crops. Organic gardening can be a fun, healthy way to grow food for your family. When you begin with your own organic compost and healthy soil, you are much more likely to enjoy healthy, thriving crops. A bountiful harvest will ensure everyone in your family appreciates your organic gardening efforts to the fullest.
