Many of us have at least a nice garden in the back yard. I've made my very own small garden for many years. When I started my personal vegetable garden, my very first crop did not amount to more than half a bucket full. With the aid of my grandaddy, since then, I've had the opportunity to grow more than enough fruits and vegetables to feed my entire family. It required a lot of time and effort to help make the garden deliver the results so I thought I have to share with you what I have learned so you won't need to go through what I went through.
First thing is to make certain that the spot you pick for your garden gets at least 8 to 10 hours of direct sunlight each day. Having sunlight can decide whether you get a lot of fruits and vegetables or just a few. The key to a successful garden is having lots of sunlight.
Once you've got your spot, you will need to till the soil with seaweed and manure. Don't be concerned if you don't obtain ocean seaweed, any seaweed from lakes, ponds and rivers is fine. By contributing manure and seaweed to the soil, you will be adding lots of quality nutrients needed for your garden to grow and thrive. Along with manure and seaweed, you can also use compost that you've made or purchased.
Now in terms of providing water to your garden you'll need to be careful. No matter if you provide too much water or too little water, you simply won't produce a lot of fruits or vegetables. For a baseline, make certain that your plants end up getting about 1 to 2 inches of water each week. This can encourage the roots to grow deep and healthy. When you don't get adequate rainfall, you may want to water your plants before 10:00am. If you water in the afternoon you take a chance on the leaves of the plants burning from the sun. If you do it during the night, there could be risk of fungal growth since the water does not evaporate.
In terms of trying to keep insects off your plants I have some things that may seem strange but they work great and you won't have to use harsh chemicals. One thing you should do with any garden would be to plant peppermint, lavender and basil all over your garden. These kinds of distinct plants help naturally push away all sorts of insects in addition to other things like deer and rabbits. Let me reveal an alternate way to keep insects away. In a container blend 1 cup of vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons of dish washing lotion and 1 to 2 tablespoons of essence of garlic. As soon as you mix it, add two tablespoons of the mixture in to a spray bottle filled with water. Only once a week, squirt all your plants with this particular mixture.
