Organic gardening can be quite demanding. It is not particularly difficult, but you do need to do some research beforehand, and keep maintaining your organic garden if you are to manage to grow enough vegetables to be sustainable for you. The little additional work that you will need to do to keep your garden organic will pay off when you harvest your produce, and when you come to replant your plants again next year, you will have good quality soil to plant your crops.

The soil that you have in your organic garden is the place where you need to start. It is often difficult to optimize your soil for growing plants, but you do not need to use chemical fertilizers in order to have good quality soil. If you have a lot of land, you could split it into two parts. Many people who have the resources to do so allow their livestock to graze on one plot of land whilst the other side is used to grow plants. This ensures that the soil has a healthy balance each year of nutrients. Animal excrement fertilizes the soil whilst the animals graze, then the plants have well fertilized soil in the following year.

Another important factor in your organic garden is the location and weather that your plants will be exposed to. You should use the necessary protection against frost when the weather gets colder. If the plants get too cold they can spoil due to the frost. If it is too hot, you may need to remember to water the plants more regularly.

If you are sowing seeds in the organic garden, then you should have a good method of keeping undesirable pests away. There are some animals that you can keep that won’t eat the plants and can keep the pests away.
