Mixing garlic, chives, and onions with the water to make an organic spray can really help discourage unwanted pests in your beautiful garden. You can make this organic spray by finely chopping chives, onions or peeled garlic, and adding them to half a cup of water. After steeping for a little while, strain the water into a spray bottle. Lightly ruffle your seeds by hand or with cardboard, twice daily in your organic garden. You may think it odd, but studies show that this action results in plant growth that is more substantial than would otherwise be achieved.
For claiming your crops are credible and truly organic, get organic garden certified. Having this certification will create a lot of trust with customers. People who want to eat organically will purchase from you with full confidence. Let your children be involved in your organic gardening efforts. A garden can be a great learning experience for your children, and it gives you a chance to bond while producing healthy food. An easy to grow plant to grow in your organic garden is garlic. Plant organic cloves in spring or fall and use moist, drained soil. Plant your garlic cloves around 1-2 inches into the ground, making sure the end is pointed up and they are four inches from each other. While they are growing and still green, the shoots can be used like scallions or chives. The bulbs of the garlic are ready for harvesting when the very tops of them begin to brown. The bulbs should be allowed to dry in the sunshine for a few days; the heat will harden the skin. Garlic can be tied in bunches or left loose, and stored where it will be cool and dry.
