Do you love gardening and being right smack in the middle of it all?I know I sure do and I just cannot wait for this time of the year to begin my vegetable garden. Today I am sharing some musings of the time spent in the garden and some tips that have really helped my garden stay healthy and produce good and continuous crops throughout our Texas growing season.
Spring Gardening & Tips
Among the joy of the harvest of the garden I enjoy working in the soil and watching tiny seedlings sprout into glorious plants.Did you know that people who surround themselves with nature are less stressed.There are reports that women who include nature in their lives actually live longer and I would suspect are much happier too!
Today I am sharing two tips on Gardening that are simple and have helped with production and the health of my plants.
Gardening Tip One:Plant your garden in intervals of anywhere from 2-3 weeks.Benefit:Increases the longevity of the crop. When one planting is finishing up producing your second crop and subsequent crops will begin.
Gardening Tip Two:Organic GardeningI have worked with all three of these organic products and I know that they work and here is why.1. Llama ManureBenefit:1. Use " llama beans" for a natural and organic fertilizer. They are a rich organic fertilizer with potassium, nitrogen and phosphorous. They are earth friendly and reduce your carbon footprint by recycling part of nature.
- "According to High Desert Organic Gardeners, you should use 13 times the amount of llama manure as you would chemical fertilizer to get the same amount of nitrogen as 20-10-5 mixes."
- Reference from SF Homeguides
2. Fish EmulsionIs a natural and burn free nitrogen and organic fertilizer, and stimulates microorganisms that live in the soil.3. Liquid Seaweed FertilizerThis fertilizer boosts plant health and helps with environmental stress.Can even help discourage spider mites.
