Check out this video interview with Scott Meyer, Editor of Organic Gardening

I think the video does a great job of preparing people what is involved in starting an organic garden.

How to grow an organic vegetable garden

 

Here are some takeaways:

  • Check out a place with full sun and good drainage
  • Don’t start too big – working in a space 4′ x 10′
  • Garden Tools:  Wooden Stakes marking an area, Large Spade with sharp blade
  • Use compost and work it into the soil to enrich the soil
  • Mulch is the best way to prevent weeds: grass clippings
  • Never too late to grow different produce
  • Herbs are great to start in the heat of the summer.
