How To: Take Care of a Garden

How To: Take Care of a Garden

My grandmother’s garden, May 2010

 

In April we celebrate the Earth, and what better way to celebrate the Earth than raising your own garden? Here are some tips to get you started:

 

Devotion

If you are telling yourself that you don’t have enough time to take care of a garden or any other excuse, but you still want to do it, just go ahead and do it. Think of it as a way of giving back to the Earth. You live there and the least you could do is treat it nicely.

 

Happiness

I will guarantee you right now that you will be 99.9% happier if you start growing a garden. It’s scientifically proven that people who are out in nature more, are more peaceful and loving and all that good stuff. Make the Earth your friend, sometimes she’s all you need.

Be Green, Be Safe

Because of this big, scary world, there are many things that you have to be aware of: pesticides, dangerous bugs, and even your own garden tools. Make sure you are buying durable, healthy, prepping materials. For example will the soil you buy be harmful to your pets?

 

Communication

This might seem crazy but because plants are similar to humans, we should treat them so. It has been proven through many experiments that when you talk to your plants, they flourish. And hey, maybe you could practice those flirtatious lines for your crush?

Have Fun

Never forget this. If you’re not enjoying gardening, then don’t force yourself to do it. I’m sure that Mother Nature will forgive you.
