Want to try and go a couple steps further to green your garden? Try these tips too.
- Start a compost bin so that you can use the refuse as fertilizer. Homemade fertilizer is nutrient rich, and you are fully aware of what is in your fertilizer.
- Use gardening tools that are made from recycled metals and plastic.
Gardening is a process, and you have to learn how to be patient and how to accept failure. With unpredictable weather conditions, you can never be certain about early frosts, sunshine or heat waves. The smallest change in weather can have a serious impact on your garden, but when you put in the effort to grow and protect your crops, you can be pleasantly surprised.
It’s also beneficial to include your children in the gardening process too. You can teach them at an early age how to grown their own food and what it means to live off of the land. Plus, your entire family will benefit from eating organic crops, and they will be more aware of what all goes into growing food. When you have toiled everyday to feed, water and protect the garden, you are less likely to waste the food you worked so hard to grow.
