It is no lie that today we live in a world that is full of stories about all the toxins there are in the air we breathe, how bad GMO foods can be and how carcinogenic even the fruits and vegetables we find in supermarkets or local grocery shops are due to all the agricultural chemicals used for fast growth and pest control. Even though you might be into a healthy and well-balanced diet and you omit all the processed foods off your menu, you still don’t know exactly how healthy the fresh groceries are which you buy on a daily basis. You can abide by the rules you set and avoid toxins at all costs, avoiding plastic and you can still end up being exposed to chemicals through your diet.
Because food is essential to us, helping us get all the necessary nutrients and supplying us with the required energy, what we eat matters a great deal. This is a reason enough to get as organic as you can and start your own garden. Since most of us live in crammed cities with little to no space for a flower pot let alone a garden, you might consider it mission impossible to get your green spot. However, there’s no place for excuses because the gardening trend that’s quickly taking over the world is tiny gardening. The great thing about this kind of gardening is that any space will do, be it your yard, terrace, balcony, including your kitchen or living room. All you need to do is arm yourself up with the proper tools and literature, such as garden books, to help you learn the basics, and you’re good to start planting.
Books like How to Food in Small Spaces, 1-Minute Gardener and Backyard Farming can get you into the gardening world and you will get all kinds of tips on how to begin, learning through step-by-step lessons how to create your edible garden and use up the space properly. You’ll also gain knowledge in taking care of the veggie patch all through harvesting. Detailed planting information and maintenance tips are also part of the insightful garden books, so you’ll surely make use of them and they also make for a perfect purchase whenever you want to enrich your home library.
You’ll obtain knowledge on how and when to do the harvesting, watering with the help of self-watering planters, do pollination and pruning, maintain pest control as well as learn how you can make your own compost right in your kitchen, using organic products so you’ll avoid having to add chemicals. Gardening your own vegetables, fruits and herbs will help you take your organic diet to another level.
