Are you an avid gardener who wants to try something new? Or are you someone who is just starting out and want a more sustainable way of feeding your family? Growing organic vegetables at home can be rewarding on many levels. It can also be challenging, but if you follow these steps and tips, it will not only get easier, but more fun! I am going to guide you through everything that’s involved in the process – from setting up your garden space to harvesting your produce.
Choosing a location with maximum sunlight exposure and room to grow
Planting in fertile soil that is free of weed, pest or disease infestation. This can be achieved by adding compost or manure into the dirt prior to planting. One other thing you’ll need is mulch (preferably organic) which will help keep weeds from growing as well as provide necessary nutrients back into the ground over time. It also helps maintain moisture levels so be sure not just use straw – it’s great for lawns but won’t do much when it comes to supporting plant growth
Covering your plants with row cover or a plastic tarp to protect them from frost. In the case of extreme heat, you would also want to provide some shade for crops that can’t handle full sunlight
Harvesting time! You’ll know when it’s ready by how much fruit is on the vine and knowing what type will be ready next season – if you’re growing tomatoes then different varieties ripen at different times so it might take all summer to get through one crop while others are harvesting multiple harvests in a single season. When vegetables have reached their maturity they typically change color as well as size
Storing your produce until consumption: this may seem like an obvious step but sometimes people forget about fruits and veggies after they’ve been harvested and then they’ll spoil.
If you’re growing veggies that are meant to be eaten raw, keep them away from any toxic chemicals like pesticides or herbicides
Growing potatoes: Potatoes require a lot of nutrients so if you don’t want to buy organic fertilizer for them it is better just to grow something else – but make sure not to plant anything in the same area as potatoes next year! Planting things with shallow roots will let more water reach your spuds below ground which can help prevent rot
