I created a row garden this year with a wide array of veggies, including tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, collard greens, kale, spinach and potatoes. I’ve made the commitment to grow organic, but it can be difficult to maintain a large row garden like mine with all the weeds growing so fast. I looked for an organic weed preventer and I found a product called Preen Organic Vegetable Garden Weed Preventer. I decided to sow it into the soil before planting seeds (it’s also serves a fertilizer).
When I was a young girl my father had a huge backyard garden. I didn’t understand the big appeal of the garden back then, mostly because I had to spend so many weekends in the hot sun helping to pull weeds! My Dad always had a great yield of tomatoes, cucumbers and other delicious greens.
One day last year on a whim, I decided to start my own little vegetable garden. I wanted to do something outdoors so that I would have more of an excuse to enjoy the sunshine instead of staying inside all of the time in front of a computer screen. I knew absolutely nothing about gardening, so I winged it mostly.
Feeding yourself and/or a family healthy produce is very challenging, these days. The worst, is that the cheaper the food, the more unhealthy it is for you. With the prices of quality produce consistently on the rise, growing your own produce has become popular by demand. The only question you must ask yourself is what kinds of produce do you and your family consume and enjoy the most. Once that question is answered you now know what to grow in your produce garden.
I personally like knowing exactly where my vegetables came from. When I visit my local supermarket, I have absolutely no idea where there produce comes from and what kind of soil and fertilizers were used to grow it. I don’t know about you but this gives me the “willies.” More people are now eating healthier and smarter. What would be better than having a garden full of wholesome vegetables in your backyard?
