growing an organic vegetable garden

You should make sure organic fertilizer is mixed into your soil at least three weeks prior to planting any organic seeds. As mentioned, the organic fertilization process takes a little more time, but is well worth the effort. You must be sure all chunks of the organic fertilizer are properly broken down and blended 100% into the soil. One of the easiest ways to control garden pests is to use the method commonly referred to as “companion planting.” There are certain plants that act as a natural insect repellent. By planting these plants with your other plants, you'll keep the insects away. Examples of such plants include the following: garlic, onions, and marigolds. You can either plant them next to your other plants, or plant them in a perimeter around your organic garden, to act as a natural barrier. You could also do both of these; to ensure maximum effectiveness for organic pest control.
