NOTHING COMPARES TO HOME GROWN
Food tastes so good when you grow it yourself, and it’s surprisingly easy to include edibles like veggies plants in your landscape.
Shop and grow vegetable plants perfect for your home garden. Tomatoes, peppers, beans, onions, and zucchini vegetables from Hidden Gardens.
Growing organic vegetables means you can enjoy healthy, tasty food fresh from your garden. Try these organic gardening tips for success.
For the healthiest plants, make sure you have optimal growing conditions. For most vegetables, that means full sun (at least 6 hours of direct sun a day). If you have poor soil, amend it with lots of organic matter, such as compost.
Use an Organic Fertilizer
Use an Organic Fertilizer most soils, fertilizing your vegetables isn't necessary, but it will help them grow faster and give better crops. If you feed your plants, choose natural products. Types of organic fertilizer include well-rotted animal manure from plant-eating critters (horses, sheep, chickens), prepackaged organic fertilizer bought at your local garden center, and compost from food waste.
Note: If you have rich soil already, you may be best off not fertilizing. Too much of a good thing can make your plants put on lots of lush, soft growth that is loved by pests. Slower-growing plants often resist insects and disease better.
Fight the weeds
By keeping weeds under control, you have the potential to save a large number of vegetables. Weeds not only compete with your plants for water and nutrients, but they may also attract insect pests. And many insects spread disease as they feed from one plant to the next. The most organic (and easiest) way to control weeds in your garden is to pull them out by hand. Use a trowel to lever the entire weed's root out of the ground to nip it in the bud.
Wet leaves, especially in the afternoon or evening hours, can attract disease. Avoid watering your plants with a sprinkler. Instead, use a water-saving soaker hose to deliver water directly to the roots.
