You can have your organic kitchen in your kitchen and also where ever there is little space available, that is nearby and accessible. You can start your organic kitchen garden with very basic tools. However, there are a few things that need to be considered before planning your organic kitchen garden; let’s consider them one by one.
Choosing the right place
Starting your organic vegetable garden in the right place makes a huge difference. You should search for a spot where your plants will get direct sunlight for at least 6 hours. If you cannot have a place that provides the desired exposure to sun, then don’t let out a sigh of despair. There are vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, peas, cauliflower, etc that can grow without such requirements.
Access to water, tools, compost
Try to have your organic kitchen garden in a place where tools, water, compost and other requirements are easily accessible. You shouldn’t be dragging tools from the other end of your yard and drudging with a heavy watering can. You should grow your plants with ease and convenience without any pressure that droop your shoulders.
It is very important to access the quality of the soil for growing organic vegetables. Do a Quick D.I.Y. Soil Test: By doing a few simple tests yourself, you can learn a lot about your soil. Learn about what type of soil you have, how healthy it is, how well it drains.
Plants and Seeds
You would require organically grown plants and seeds. And for that, there are several good companies that provide organic vegetable garden seeds. Many nurseries, garden centres, and online stores are also starting to sell a selection of organic seeds. These are usually very clearly labelled as “organic.” Organically-produced seeds are harvested from organically-grown plants, that are never treated with chemical pesticides or fungicides, and are never genetically modified.
Plant, Grow, and Harvest! Now that you’ve got your garden installed and the soil amended, the organic plants and seeds bought — now it’s time to plant and tend your garden. Pay close attention to your garden, so pests and diseases stay away from them.
The simple pleasure of biting into a tomato still warm from the sun picked and eaten on the spot, is almost unbeatable. You can grow just about any vegetable in a container and you can also save serious bucks by growing your own veggies.
