Organic Tomato Plants

 

Organic plant foods benefit your soil and plants, it also benefits you because they are not as costly as inorganic products are. The controversy of whether to utilize natural or inorganic plant food should be over mainly because the greener you are the better your plants will be.

 



It is easy to make compost from kitchen scraps. 
In addition to the food scraps you can use to compost there are many different organic items you can add. 


 Gardening is easy.
It does not take a lot of effort to grow artichokes, asparagus, beans, broccoli, carrots, corn, lettuce, onions, peas, potatoes, spinach and more in a rased garden in your back yard.

One thing you have to do before planting the seeds is to put in organic fertilizer. You can use recycled leaves, grass clippings, coffee grounds, eggshells and kitchen waste which should be applied a month before planting begins.

 

Decide what you want to grow.
The most important thing to do is to decide what you want to grow. There are so many vegetables to choose from but keep in mind that certain vegetables cannot be grown because of the climate so take that into consideration.

Echinacea purpurea

One of the easiest and prettiest herbs to grow is Echinacea purpurea.

 

Artichoke

Artichokes can be grown from seeds or from division or root cuttings. They are perennials that normally produce the edible flower only during the second and subsequent years, certain varieties of artichoke can be grown from seed as annuals, producing a limited harvest at the end of the first growing season. Artichokes are not normally winter-hardy and they do better in the south.

Nathaniel Hawthorne
"I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation.  It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green."  ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mosses from and Old Manse
