I prefer to grow my plants from seeds because it is cheaper, and it allows me to have more control over what I have available to plant. Right now, at the nurseries it would be difficult to find winter vegetables. Therefore, I do not rely on nurseries to furnish my garden plants. There is; however, nothing wrong with buying seeds or seedlings from a nursery. The only difference is that you sometimes must wait longer before you can start planting the next seasons crops.
Stay shallow in the soil when you are working it. You do not need to break your back digging deep in your organic garden. Keep your depth to an average of six inches. Nearly eighty-five percent of all plant roots only require the top six inches of soil. That should make your work easier.
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.
While most people think of large organic farms when they hear about Organic Gardening this is not always exactly how it works. If you are interested in becoming an organic farmer all you need is a small piece of land and some seeds of your own. If you plant it and take care of it, it is probably organic!
If you attach a photo of your business, I’ll make every effort to use it. Please identify any employees in the photos and use this as a “warm fuzzy” PR opportunity by telling my readers a little about your business and the role the pictured employees play in it. All photos will be resized to no larger than 320 x 240 pixels.
Greens: Bok choy, Pac Choy, Napa Cabbage, Head Lettuce, Radicchio, Spinach, Collard Greens, and Chard all do well here in the fall and mostly through the winter.
Do take care of problems when you first notice them. If you see a leaf turning yellow, a white mildew starting to appear, black spots or you see pests, take care of the problem right away. because the longer you wait, the harder it will be to get it under control.
