The Joy of an Organic Salad Garden

Gardening is one of the most relaxing hobbies; it can involve the entire family and provide good health. Growing flowers and plants is a passion many enjoy but growing your own vegetables and herbs is something that will reward you in a much greater way.

Why Start an Organic Salad Garden?

The main concern we all have when we purchase from a store is that the vegetables and salad may not be fresh and/or they are chemically treated. Chemicals can and will have side affects on our health in the long run and therefore many have taken the initiative of growing their own vegetables in an organic environment. Starting and maintaining an organic salad garden is easy and you will have the possibility of having fresh from-your-garden salad everyday to accompany your meals.

Starting an Organic Salad Garden

The first thing you must do in order to start an all organic salad garden is to ensure that the earth in which you are about to plant the vegetables is not chemically treated in any way. Then you need to get the seeds from an organic store only to ensure that they are not treated artificially either. To maintain an organic salad garden you must also ensure that you use chemical-free fertilizers, which can also be found in organic stores.

Lettuce for instance is very easy to grow, as all it needs in abundance is water and sunlight. However, if it is winter and you have a green house you must ensure it has all the light it requires or else it will not grow much.
