Compost Tea – A Free Plant Food For Your Organic Garden

Thus, I am putting out a call for local vendors of peat moss, sand, compost and other soil amendments / gardening supplies at retail (bulk OR bagged) to contact me ASAP for inclusion in a listing.

Sets are the third method of planting onions. When purchasing sets you can figure that one pound is enough to plant a fifty foot row. Trench your rows out about 2 inches deep and place the sets with the stem end up. This is the one thing that you will need to watch for when planting. Once you have the sets in place cover with a good garden soil and maintain then with the same methods as transplants.

The new law or bill already has been approved by the Assembly in Sacramento. A.B. 152’s author is Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes from San Fernando Valley. This week Fuentes will visit the Senate Appropriations Committee. Will the bill pass into law? If so, A.B. 152 will help the local farmers harvest their vegetables and fruits. Without this type of help, the food would rot in the fields.

Do use cover crops. Some organic gardeners – even those with small plots – plant a fast-growing cover crop such as buckwheat. About three or four weeks before you’re ready to plant, mow the buckwheat and then work it into the soil. Now you have a natural compost working to add nutrients to the soil!

We placed an Ever Bamboo Premium Closet Deodorizer pack on my closet shelf. It was hard to notice if this product works well, because clothes usually do not stink. I did notice though that my clothes do not have that distinct laundry detergent and dryer sheets smell after using Ever Bamboo Premium Closet Deodorizer. Some people may not like that, but i like that my clothes do not smell like soap. My husband has quit smoking, so any odors on his closet shelf are no longer there. I think this product would be excellent for my parents, as they are both smokers and the odor of cigarettes is always noticeable on their clothing.

More community gardens are needed in areas such as midtown and downtown Sacramento and Arden Arcade where you have many seniors living on tiny social security incomes that must cover food, shelter, and clothing, and also families in need of finding affordable organic produce for the sake of health.

Organic Gardening is different from regular gardening, most notably in the preparation of the soil. If you feel that all you have to do is mark off a piece of land in your backyard and throw down some seeds, and that’s your garden, you are very mistaken. At the conclusion of this text, you should have a proper picture on how to have good soil for organic gardening.

The lessons of the tomato are fresh in my mind and I have decided to devote myself to gardening via the farmer’s market from now on. If the day is too hot or blustery or wet, I can buy produce indoors at the local town market. The region’s Sufi farm provides organic vegetables for purchase there.
