You know what I hate most about organic vegetable gardening? Running one is bloody hard work! There are lots of things to do, plenty of maintenance tasks involved…
As a result, not many folks are willing to do it on a serious level. In fact, I wanted to have my own organic vegetable garden for years, but I was put off by the enormous amount of work I had to do to maintain it.
However, last year, I discovered a highly efficacious gardening method that requires extremely limited amount of maintenance work.
The method is called ecological organic vegetable gardening and it is in my experience, the easiest and most convenient way of running organic vegetable plots.
Note: There's a video introduction of this method and you can view it by clicking this link.
Here are some of the benefits of building an ecological organic vegetable garden.
When you set up an ecological garden, you're basically creating a living, breathing ecosystem right at your home. Doing so allows us to leverage the power of nature. We get nature to maintain our vegetable garden for us!
For example, the natural characteristic of an ecological vegetable garden prevents weeds from growing and spreading across your garden plot. Yes, the process occurs naturally so you don't have to do the weeding yourself.
Also, the ecological method allows your garden to endure longer periods without water.
It makes your plants last much longer, prevent pests naturally and doesn't require any other tedious gardening tasks such as resting beds periodically, rotating crops, applying store-bought fertilizers and so forth.
Key tips for successful eco organic vegetable gardening.
• Install permanent pathways that are strategically positioned so you'll no longer need to walk on your garden beds. This important because we want to avoid unnecessary compaction.
• Significantly increase the soil's ability to hold water. You can achieve this by not digging the soil. When you dig, you disrupt the soil's structure therefore repressing the soil's capacity to provide essential nutrients to plants.
Digging also affects the soil's water retention capacity.
• Make sure your garden is planted with a variety of edible plants. Plant densely to prevent weeds from occupying niche spaces in your garden, and prevent surface crusting which causes runoff and nutrient decline.
