Who does not love tomatoes? We have set up a guide for you to grow the best tomatoes. After this guide, how long it takes, and how to grow tomatoes won’t have any secrets for you.  Tomatoes love the sun; that is why we are reminded of a sunny day whenever we eat pasta but forget about these store-bought tomato sauces; these are far from the real taste of tomato sauce that you will get to enjoy. It takes a minimum of 60 days for tomatoes to grow, and it can go up to 100 days. As I mentioned earlier, tomatoes love the sun so, it is logical that they cannot bear frost. It is better to start planting the seed first and then to transplant when the climate is better. In this article, we will go through the planting process; you will want to read the other parts of…

Juice Garden

You’ve waited a long time to harvest your fruits and vegetables, and now that you’ve harvested the fruits of your labor, the last thing you want to do is just throw them in the fridge and let them die, resulting in a waste of your time, money, and effort. In this article, I will teach you how to make the most of your harvest. What Goes In The Fridge? Some vegetables will go in the fridge, and some must be left over the counter; most people throw everything in the fridge, which reduces the lifespan of those vegetables. Broccoli, cauliflower, sprouts, cucumbers, and peppers go in the fridge. Vegetables such as mushrooms must be put in a paper bag, or else they will get moldy. Lettuce and leafy vegetables should be put in an airtight bag before being put in the fridge as they are more prone to moisture loss;…

Compost

The key to a healthy and thriving garden is your compost. In previous articles, we’ve covered the basics of composting and various methods to speed it up for our impatient gardeners out there.

To avoid these, we’ll go over the most common issues and ways to fix them. How do I recognize the perfect compost? The perfect compost has a fine and crumbly texture. It smells earthy, and the ingredients that were in the compost are no longer visible. It should be dark brown and have a uniform consistency.

Fertilizers

Fertilizing is still a vague topic for most amateur gardeners with many of them using more fertilizer than necessary. Nowadays, gardeners favour organic fertilizers instead of chemical fertilizers when preparing the soil to welcome new plants. What Fertilizers Can You Use? There are natural fertilizers like animal manure from cows, sheep, or horses. Cow manure is probably the best of the three, but it really depends on your soil type. There should be a mix of one part manure to six parts of soil. However, keep in mind that manured soil should be at least six months to one year old before usage. Compost is another organic fertilizer, but gardeners often complain that it takes too long to manufacture. Compost, with speeding methods, can be ready in around six months, but it can take up to three years to be completely ready. There are many options of organic fertilizers, for…

Lettuce is one of the most common crops both in the urban garden and in the field, as this type of crop is very popular. If you are going to plant lettuce (in pots or directly in the ground), make sure you always maintain a specific humidity level to grow appropriately and harvest healthy and delicious lettuces. Let’s check out some strategies to help you make your salads the crispest, freshest, tastiest, and most nutritious.   1.- Location When planting lettuce, look for a place where they will get enough light, although we need to provide some shade during the hottest days of the year to prevent the lettuce leaves from becoming too bitter.

Ecological or sustainable gardening seeks to create and develop green areas that respect the environment, letting nature do its work, trying to reduce the use of important resources such as water and energy, and avoiding the excessive application of polluting products, such as fertilizers with nitrates, as well as insecticides, fungicides and herbicides that have a negative impact on the environment.
