Home & Garden Tips & Tricks
You can do it and we can help
Only grow as much food as you can store and use in a given season. Unless you sell at a farmer's market, only grow what you're going to use.
Things like Basil, mint and parsley are easy to grow. Try growing common herbs yourself and avoid having to add them to the grocery list.
plant in blocks
Block planting makes efficient use of space by keeping the spacing between plants tight and eliminating unnecessary pathways.
Make good use of limited space by trying vertical gardening. It's much easier than you think. Increase your yield by going vertical. All you have to do is give it a shot.
pick at the peak
Preserve the flavor and nutrition of leafy greens, root crops and many other vegetables by refrigerating them, but don’t chill storage onions, sweet potatoes, shallots or tomatoes.
Take advantage of free, nitrogen-rich fertilizers such as grass clippings and human urine. You can mulch crops with chemical-free grass clippings, or make a fertilizer tea by steeping clippings in water. Dilute 1 part urine with 20 parts water, and use the resulting tea in the garden and to feed seedlings.
