Do you love to garden? Do you love to be right smack in the middle of nature?
Well if you do and if you are looking for some gardening tips and have some to share, I’d love for you to stick around !
By now I am sure you know that I am most content being in the middle of nature.
That includes my garden, the mountains, the forest, the valleys.
These are perfect spots where I can I plop right down in the middle of it all, burrow my hands into the soil, hike a mountain, picnic among the trees or simply sit in a quiet valley and just hear the silence.
It is here in these intricately designed elements, which far surpass anything that man could make, that I find my happy place.
Among the glory of nature I just enjoy watching the dance of it all, you know nature has it’s own rhythms just like the tides of the sea and one of my favorites dances to be part of is that of the Garden.
Have you ever watched a seed sprout and unfurl it’s newly discovered leaves?
(This is a green bean.)
How about seeing the wind skip along the tips of pink cosmos petals.
We know that it is amazing, don’t we…
While to some this photo may not look like much, but just wait, in a few short months the delicate dance of this garden will have begun and waltzed, tangoed and produced beauty and food.
Did you know that people that surround themselves with nature are less stressed?
It’s been reported that women who include the joy of nature in their lives actually live longer.
Today I am sharing with you some nifty gardening tips that have worked well for me, so they just might for you too.
Today I planted my second crop of radish, zinnia and sunflower.
Gardening Tip One:
Plant your garden in intervals of anywhere from 2-3 weeks.
Increases the longevity of the crop. When one planting is finishing up producing your second crop and subsequent crops will begin.
Gardening Tip Two:
One of my primary goals is organic gardening and to become organically certified in order to sell my produce to local organic markets/restaurants.
I have worked with all three of these organic products and I know that they work and here is why.
1. Llama Manure
2. Fish Emulsion
3. Seaweed Fertilizer
1. Use ” llama beans” for a natural and organic fertilizer. They are a rich organic fertilizer with potassium, nitrogen and phosphorous. They are earth friendly and reduce your carbon footprint by recycling part of nature.
2. Fish Emulsion is a natural and burn free nitrogen and organic fertilizer, and stimulates microorganisms that live in the soil.
3. Liquid Seaweed Fertilizer boosts plant health and helps with environmental stress.
Can even help discourage spider mites.
