Greening Your Garden~

Aren't all gardens green you might ask, and the answer is no, all gardens are not green, all gardens are not healthy.

Greening your garden is a process that can take one to 3 years, depending on how much and the types of chemical ingredients you have used over the last few years.

Do you know, when chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides are used in the garden it can take at least 3 years to rid the soil of the traces that are left.

As long as these chemical traces are in the soil, it is in the food you grow and eat or make available to others.

The more chemicals used, the more the soil is depleted, the more fertilizer it takes to promote growth and it becomes a cycle that doesn't give back anything good to the soil or to you.

If you wish to green your garden, start by cleaning up your soil, stop using any chemical based products and renew with compost and minerals that will put life back into your dirt.

Composting worms are a super additive to the gardens, along with frogs, toads, lizards, and other beneficial insects.

Mother nature has all the answers and provides everything we need to have and produce a green life, healthy foods, safe environments for our children, and for the wildlife that plays a major part in a green garden.

Happy Gardening...Green Gardening~
