Gardening To Produce Food
by Sally Jamesfield
More and more people are becoming interested in growing their own food. If you were to do a keyword search on gardening, you would find an increase of around 60% for searching dealing with gardening. One of the top reason why people are becoming interested in gardening is that they do not trust the food supply. How did you like this post?
A major subject in health circles are GMOs and genetically modified foods, which may or may not be healthy. People are also concerned about the use of pesticides and insecticides.
In general, people simply want organic foods that tastes great. If you ever tastes a truly organically vine ripened tomato, you will never want a grocery store tomato again, this also true for other forms of produce.
I do not want to completely badmouth grocery store produce because it is a blessing to have.
Most people don't have the time or desire to grow their own food and buying organically grown produce can be expensive.
This is more of a conversation for people who are willing to put in the work to grow their own produce.
One suggestion is to start off small. If you lack experience growing food you should start off slow and build up slowly.
Perhaps growing a very small variety of a few different types of vegetables.
One thing you should not skimp on is soil. You should invest in quality soil. Not only should you be picky about your soil, you should be picky about where you grow your food.
The area should be clean and have enough access to sunlight. You should take time to properly prepare your garden area.
Do things right from the start so that you will not have headaches down the road. Plan your garden to perfection.
You can't grow anything without seeds or seedlings. I prefer to grow from seeds than from commercially purchased seedlings.
Growing from seeds allows me to have total control over the growing process.
I only by GMO-FREE organic seeds from a reputable seed bank.
Remember the mantra, do things right from the start. We are starting with the best soil and the best seeds.
Most of us are use to going to the grocery store and buying anything that we want.
With gardening you will have to practice patients because it takes most plants 30 to 90 days before you can harvest them.
There are fast growing methods such as micro-greening where you only grow plants for up to 14 days before you harvest them.
There is research that says that plants pack more nutrients when they are young.
As you can see, gardening is a very involved hobby and not for people who lack patience. There are a lot of preliminary things that have to be done.
The benefit of all this work is that you will have produce that is cheaper, healthier and tastier than anything you can buy in the store. You don't have to worry about the safety of what you eat.
You will soon discover that gardening is one of the most wonder filled and satisfying hobbies that you can ever undertake!
