The old year is out and the new one is still taking off along with people’s new goals and life changes for the New Year. So whilst we are talking about new goals, have you ever considered growing an edible garden? An edible garden could be in the form of pots on the balcony, pots in the backyard or simply designating an area of the garden to grow edible produce. Cooking recipes are more exotic and aromatic than ever before so it seems a very green and economical way to get hold of herbs and fresh produce for the cooking pot.
Good Compost – The Key to Getting Started
Whether you are going to grow fruit or veg in the ground or in a pot you need a supply of good soil or compost. If you have space, even limited space, a small food digester and composter to recycle household waste, food waste and garden waste is of great benefit to produce your own recycled compost. You must not neglect your edible garden if you want to be successful. Water the plants regularly, deadhead plants and throw them in the compost to recycle. Keep on top of weeds and pesky pests such as snails and slugs (you could even keep them back and recycle, if you are into French cuisine).
