How to Grow Your Own Organic Vegetable Garden (video)

This video shows you how, in a space of only 4 x 10 feet, you can easily have your own backyard vegetable garden. You donít even need to dig. You just lay several layers of mulch (leaves, grass clippings) on top of the ground, separated by newspapers, and you are ready to plant.

I was searching for many blogs site and now finally I have got this cool place with lots of information.

I used the sandwich layering technique over a heavily grassy area, and just left it for several months. When I lifted the cardboard, the grass had composted and it was a breeze to clear the remaining roots. I also have very few weeds to contend with. My earthworms are so happy, they've started to pull the good earth into the yard to expand their area. I find little piles of worm castings scattered in the yard around my garden. My vegetables taste incredible and they're all organic :)

Love this. Raised beds, containers, mulching with throw aways...lots of great ideas; now I just need to put feet to my inspirations!

Thanks for sharing, great idea! I've grown my rosemary, cilantro and lavender in pots. We live in Reno, Nv. and with looong winters, so I just take care of my herbs indoors. Pretty soon will grow squash, chamomille, pepermint and lettuce.

Container Gardening works as well, and much easier to keep tidy and clean. I bought big plastic tubs and filled them up with stones in the bottom, compost, lawn clippings, horsemanure and watered it in well before putting in my seeds. Beans, peas, cucumber, tomatoes does well. Also spinach, carrots , lettuce varieties, and all herbs. Nothing more satisfying than collecting veggies for dinner in your back yard. Margaret Roberts book of Companion Planting is a must to avoid having to spray your food. We have good weather all year here in South Africa on the high veld, and I can grow fantastic crops in winter too, if I buy the seeds from Denmark, on special in their end of summer sales.

Would love to do this, but javalina and rabbits rule around here. The expense of a chain-link fence would not be practical but they're so much fun to watch it's an even trade. I'll buy from organic section of the supermarket.

Thank God for diatamacious (sp?) earth! It has been the only thing that will control bugs in my garden and my indoor herb garden and house plants. Next best thing to peanut butter!
