8 Organic Gardening Tips to Grow an Incredible Organic Garden

Like real estate, where you put your yard is very important. You should make sure that the area is good for growing veggies before you spend a lot of time and money setting up a garden. Most vegetables need full sun for at least eight hours a day.

Location, Location, Location

Put your life (and your yard) on a strong base! The earth is where all the magic of plant life starts. Soil holds plant roots in place, gives them water, helps them absorb nutrients, and even boosts their immune systems.

Invest in Your Soil

There is nothing worse than feeling overwhelmed by taking on too big of a project. I know from experience that biting off more than you can chew will ultimately result in a weedy, overgrown, stressful garden.

Start Small

It's easy to want to grow everything when you first start farming! It's true that variety is key to a healthy yard environment, but you can be different without moving into a "niche."

Find Your Niche

Another mistake new gardeners make is planting vegetables they don't like to eat. It doesn't make sense to plant crops just because they're simple or because other farmers do.

Grow What You Love

Even though starting seeds is a lot of fun, it can be hard to do and needs more tools. I always tell people who are new to gardening to buy veggie seeds from a local organic farm. These are also known as "starts" or "transplants."

Buy Your Transplants

There are several thousand different kinds of tomatoes, just like there are many dog breeds. When choosing plants for your yard, you should make sure you choose types that will do well in your area, in the weather, and with the food you like.

Choose the Right Varieties

Water is certainly one of the most important garden inputs after sunshine and soil. Start a garden near a well or municipal water faucet. Use a garden hose to hand-water or put up a basic sprinkler, soaker, or drip irrigation system.

Pay Attention to Your Water
