The Organic Way

FREE Advice

With Jay North

Instructions:

STEP 1:
Pick a spot for your garden that gets at least half a day of sunshine and has easy access to water. Be sure it drains well, or else plan to build a raised bed garden.

STEP 2:

Clear the area of all weeds - mow, pull and dig them out. Till the area and rake out the debris. Then wait until it sprouts and clear again to prevent weed problems later.

STEP 3:

Test your soil and build it with organic matters. Then add compost, bone meal or rock phosphate, and greensand to supply nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Add lime or sulphur to adjust the soil's pH only if directed by soil-test results.

STEP 4:

Till or dig in fertilizers and two kinds of organic matter. Add an inch of sharp sand if your soil is clay, then rake your soil into beds or rows. Let your organic garden mellow its nutrients for at least a month before planting.

STEP 5:

Choose an organic mulch to blanket your garden. Pick a material like ground bark that will decompose over a season or two, and dig it in as it breaks down.

STEP 6:

Start a compost pile and recycle leaves, grass clippings, coffee grounds, eggshells and kitchen waste into excellent organic fertilizer. Pile up leaves alone in the back of the bed to make leaf mold - use it for mulch once it's broken down to a dark brown material.

STEP 7:


Plant your organic garden for success - rely on plants with good local track records. Look for disease resistance bred into vegetables especially.

STEP 8:

Practice smart gardening - walk the garden every day with hoe in hand to scratch out weeds as they sprout. Look for insects and diseases, and control them at the earliest stages for best effect.

Tips & Warnings

Interpret soil-test results with this formula: to apply a recommendation of 3 pounds of an element (say phosphorus) over 1000 square feet, divide the number of pounds you need (3) by the percent of that nutrient in the fertilizer. (The percentage will be on the label; for example, bone meal is 20 percent phosphorus.) Three divided by 20 percent equals 15 pounds per 1000 square feet.

Use Garlic Barrier to warn off bugs.
