Imagine not having to constantly run to the store for fresh produce and herbs. To be able to pick produce from your very own urban garden is a rare experience for most people. Most of us are aware about the importance of eating more natural, locally grown foods. Today, it’s no surprise to see people taking the time to grow their own food. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have fresh herbs and produce from your own garden at your disposal for cooking, tea or garnishes? We thought so! Here’s how you can get started on your urban garden.
Begin by picking any small spot around your home that gets good sunlight. For instance, your outdoor patio or if you have extra space on a bookshelf. It’s important to consider how much sunlight your garden choices might need in order to determine a good spot for them.
Next, you’ll need to decide what plants will make the most sense for you. What types of herbs do you normally use for cooking? What types of produce or natural foods do you eat most? Once you have this figured out, reconsider the space you originally chose for your urban garden. You’ll want to make sure enough space is available, depending on how big you want it to be.
If you need to buy some seeds, you might want to find a place that sells great seeds for the best produce and herbs. We suggest visiting www.seedsavers.org.
Then, enjoy the fruits of very little labor and watch your urban garden grow! For additional tips about planting your seeds and up keeping your garden, take a peak at www.urbanorganicgardener.com. Enjoy!
