Your 1 Stop for Organic Gardening

>> Saturday, October 17, 2009





Many of you folks know this is my beginnings as a homesteader and organic gardener, and I have been doing a ton of research. These are my findings,,,

Most gardeners have heard of companion planting and may know that you should plant garlic under your roses, or plant onions and ...

 carrots next to each other, but there's so much more to it as I found out recently.

I've just found a great book on companion planting, written by Julie Villani, a passionate organic grower, who's astounded me with her depth of knowledge on companion planting. Not only does her e-book reveal what to plant near what and what not to, but how to reduce your workload in the garden and all sorts of priceless gems.
She has a little e-book out which I found invaluable. It covers things like

1. How to choose the right plants to grow together
2. How to reduce your gardening workload - let nature do it for you
3. How much to plant for your family
4. How to protect your fruits and vegetables from insect attack
5. How to save money by not having to replace sickly plants
6. Which plants you must never grow together

The more we know about working in harmony with nature, the healthier our plants are going to be.

Peace and Prosperity to You,,Happy Homesteading,,,NY Homesteader
