Be sure to plant some strawberries for your children and grandchildren. Ever-bearing ones are especially nice. Strawberries are a favorite of children due to their sweetness. And since they’re so easy and fun to pick, it’s also a healthy, productive, safe activity that children can assist adults with.
The ideal temperature to set your thermostat for indoor plants is between 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit during the daylight hours. Young plants need a temperature within that specific range to grow. If you don’t want you house to be really warm during the cold season, you could use a heat lamp on organic plants instead.
Cover your muddy shoes with plastic bags. You will be able to go in and out without having to keep taking your shoes on and off.
You should always take spacing into account when placing plants in your organic garden. Many people underestimate the space needed for plants to grow to their full size. You will need to provide this space to provide ample room and because you need air circulating to your garden. Because of this, you should always take the time to ensure that there’s enough distance between all your seeds.
Don’t let all the little chores in your organic garden build up. While you may not be able to spend a lot of time every day in your garden, even little items done daily will stop the mountain of work from growing. For example, pull a few weeds if you’re outside and waiting for your dog to finish his business.
Use equal parts of green and dried plant material in your compost pile. Green plant material includes grass clippings, spent flowers, vegetable and fruit waste, weeds and leaves. Your dried material can be things such as sawdust, paper shreds, wood shavings, straw and cardboard. Never use ashes, meat, charcoal, diseased plants or carnivorous animal manure in your compost pile.
