Crunchy Tuesday : Gardening

So you’ve all seen pictures of my garden. Or should I say my almost garden, since the plants aren’t in the ground yet? And, if you know me at all by now, I’ll be going organic as much as I can. Or basically gardening the way our grandparents did before they started selling big bottles of chemical sprays in the stores. Why spend the extra time weeding, or even gardening in the first place? Well, not only do children who eat organic foods have less pesticide residues in their bodies (kids eating conventional foods have something like 6 times more) it will hopefully turn out to be a cheaper option for us in the fact that I can preserve what we don’t eat right away for next fall and winter.

I don’t really have a lot of tips to offer you, seeing as how this is my first garden and all, so I’m really hoping all of you out there will leave me some tips in the Mr. Linky! (sometimes I can be rather selfish on my own blog, and here you thought it was all about you!)

Have a tip? Post about it on your blog and leave the link back here to your post (not your homepage) Want a tip? check out the links below!

    We’re still working on getting plants in the ground…have tomato’s, bell peppers, cucumbers and strawberries so far! Today, I’m hoping to turn the dirt and plant again today! Here is a tip-
    Combine equal part of water and soap and add a couple squirts of tabasco sauce in it- pour into a spray bottle and spray those pesky garden critters also works great on rose bushes for the aphids.
