I was reading an interesting article today, chock full o’tips about organic gardening. This is just one of the many recent articles that I’ve
come across that mention how many new gardeners there seem to be this season as compared to previous years. Largely due to the economy, people are looking for ways to raise their own crops of organic garden goodies.
Here is a recent article in the Lancaster County Newspaper that gardeners might find interesting:
- Did you know that you can plant basil near your tomatoes to help enhance the flavor and keep away pests? Wow! Who knew?!
- Did you know that planting cosmos flowers near tomatoes and peppers helps attract praying mantis and lady bugs, which eat the pestier pests? Who knew!?
- Did you know that tomatoes and peppers are the easiest veggies to grow in containers? They are easy for newbie gardeners and those who are limited with space – grow a tomato plant on your deck!
Does this news excite you as much as it does me? It makes me wish these rainy days would end already so that I can go out and play in the dirt, not to mention make myself a yummy tomato salad (with basil!).
If you have any gardening tips to share, please feel free to do so here! And of course, if you are looking for a garden shed to keep all of your tools handy, look no further than Lancaster’s own Country Sheds manufacturer!
