Planning Your Organic Garden
The first step in planning an organic garden is to determine what type of garden you want to create. There are many different types of gardens that can be used for various purposes. Some gardens can be used for food production, while others may be used as decorative gardens that provide aesthetic appeal without any food production capabilities.
The next step is to determine how much space you have available for planting and growing. You will need to know how much area you have available so that you can determine how many plants can fit into each section of your garden bed or row system. You may want to consider using raised beds or container gardens if you do not have enough space in your yard or elsewhere on your property.
Once you have determined the amount of space available, it's time to look at what types of plants will work best in your particular climate zone or microclimate area (if there is one). If you live in an area that has cool summers and mild winters, then consider planting cool season vegetables such as lettuce and spinach that grow well during the spring through summer months and can be harvested before the fall weather arrives.
This guide will hopefully help you to build up your own organic garden. You don't need special tools or expensive techniques, but you do need careful planning and commitment to ensure that your garden stays healthy and grows well. The pleasure of growing your own organic food cannot be emphasized enough. The food doesn't have all the chemicals that commercially grown produce has, and with a little planning you can create a steady supply of fresh, organic fruits and veggies throughout the entire year.
