If you have an organic garden and children, plant some everbearing strawberries for them. A lot of children not only love to pick out their own fruit but they also love to learn about it as well.
It’s simple to quickly prepare your soil for the planting of a perennial garden. Use a spade to dig up some soil, flip the soil over, and finally, sprinkle around 3-4 inches of wood chips on the soil. Allow the newly turned soil to sit for two weeks, then plant your perennials.
To be most efficient in your gardening, always keep your tools close at hand. Wear pants with multiple pockets or use a toolbox or large bucket. A gardener’s tool belt will allow you to keep your gardening gloves and other tools close by while you are working in your garden.
You should work efficiently, instead of working hard in your garden, to simplify things. Don’t spend 30 minutes searching for a tool. Take the time to prepare the necessary tools, and then store them in a easily accessed place once you are done gardening. One way to keep your tools handy is to use a belt especially designed to hold them. An alternative is to wear a garment with multiple pockets that are big enough to hold your more commonly used tools.
Use a laundry basket to help you collect produce from your garden. The laundry basket will function as a makeshift strainer for the fruits and vegetables. The basket won’t be affected by the water and it will drain right off as though it were poured into a large sieve.
You can kill weeds naturally. To control the growth of weeds, all you need is last week’s Sunday paper. Weeds need sun for growth, just like any other plant. When you put newspaper over them, they suffocate from lack of sunlight. Newspapers break down nicely over time to become part of the compost. Put mulch over top to increase the attractiveness of the pile.
