If you are looking to become more self-sufficient and reduce your footprint on the planet; then there is no better way than having your own Vege garden to help feed yourself and your family. Cutting out all that excessive and unnecessary packaging that seems to come with our Fruit and Veges these days is a great way to improve your trash impact. Today’s Friday Follows Blog is a fantastic resource on how to get started and what to take into consideration if you want to go down this particular garden path… I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I have enjoyed finding it!!
Everyone knows that you need to practice your gardening skills now before the world as we know it ends. However, how are you implementing that practice? Did you purchase your seedlings from a store? If you have bugs in your garden, do you reach for the Seven? If a plant dies, do you run to the store to get another one? Did you purchase commercial manure or garden soil to ‘plus up’ your soil this year? As we all know, this isn’t sustainable. My idea of survival gardening is to take all necessary actions needed to overcome the need/desire to run to the store when I have a gardening problem. Running to the store won’t be possible when the world as we know it ends. Survival or sustainable gardening takes work (and planning), a bit of knowledge you may not currently have, and a different mindset. I propose a four prong approach for you to consider implementing.
