Posting 30 tips for a better edible garden in the new year was a lot of fun and the exercise helped remind us of some best practices too. After all, it is important to practice what you preach.
Tip #30 is one we have been waiting to unveil since the beginning. In fact, growing organic is so important we even thought about posting it 2 or 3 times throughout this tip series. However, saving it for last is a nice way to wrap up this series of tips. Plus, having it at the end may just boost the importance of growing organic edibles.
This is not meant to be an exhaustive instructional on how to grow organically. There’s plenty of information out there on the topic already. Our goal here is to make sure the option of growing organic is strongly considered.
Furthermore, it is important to know that growing organic can be more work and take more time than simply applying non organic fertilizers and harsh chemical pesticides. We feel the control over what is on/in your foods is well worth the extra effort!
