Starting your own organic garden is a great way to access awesome, healthy food. But that doesn’t mean that it is easy. For your garden to truly be organic, you first need not use any chemicals to fertilize the soil and help your plants grow.
The best way to start your organic experiment is to choose where you’re going to place the garden wisely. Look for a place with great sun exposure. Around 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day will do the trick.
The garden compost soil itself is the next step in making your organic garden dreams a reality. You might not find the greatest soil on the patch you want to use. But that’s ok. You can always buy organically enriched soil and mix it in. Remember to only bring in naturally enriched soil, with nutrients normally found in nature. After you’ve spread your soil and planted your plants, the next step is to make sure you maintain a healthy layer of mulch on top of it all. This way, your plants will always have nutrients and moisture at their disposal.
