GROWING VEGETABLES AND BALANCED LIVING

FunkyCoop (50)

We are told that connecting with nature is an important part of keeping ourselves balanced and grounded.  I find working a patch of vegetables is one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to stay connected to nature’s calming rhythms. I recently planted herbs, lettuces, kale, mustard, squash, carrots and radishes in our raised beds.  In a few weeks I will be carrying my basket out to the backyard to load it up with fresh vegetables for our evening meal!

Garden07  Here are a vegetable growing resources I have found useful:

The book, Square Foot Gardening gives step by step instructions for creating raised beds.

Bountiful Gardens and Seeds of Change are excellent mail-order sources for organic, nonGMO seeds.

The Natural Gardner nursery is an excellent local source for seed, seedlings and organic fertilizers.

For small spaces, Home Depot sells organic planting soils such as Dillo Dirt. Our space required a large quantity of soil. We had this delivered from the local Austin supplier, Geo Growers.

Garden05 Keep in mind the many farmers markets available if growing your own vegetables isn’t an option. You will still be getting  freshly picked produce and supporting local farmers at the same time.
