Organic Farming

Organic farming is growing fruits and vegetables with nothing but organic methods. Organic soil is the biggest part of organic farming and always will be. Organic farming will always be my only method of farming. I want healthy fruits and vegetables for my family to eat. I don’t want preservatives in my food. And I don’t want pesticides in them either. Organic farming is watering with fresh rain water. Without all of the chlorine or bleaches. Fresh rain water is easy to get with a rain barrel or two. I have about 10 and they always have water in them. It’s free and there is plenty of it. When I finish the other side of my greenhouse completely I will have about 8 more barrels. Organic farming would not be complete without organic fertilizer. Which could be many different types of animal waste, grass clippings, vegetable peelings, coffee grounds, tea leaves, egg shells, and even fish waste from cleaning out a pond. And these are some of the best fertilizers there ever was and that there ever will be.

Organic Farming: Healthy Plants Healthy Produce

The better your plants grow and produce the less likely they are to have pests. It’s no secret that an unhealthy plant is subject to pests. When you grow organic your plants are healthy and vibrant. And can fight off diseases and pests. Keeping them healthy by watering and fertilizing will allow the plant to concentrate on growing great produce instead of fighting off disease. Just keep in mind that over watering and fertilizing can seriously hurt your plants so everything in moderation. Believe me I have been on both ends of the spectrum. In other words never put straight manure on any plant. Always mix your manure with some top soil, sand, clippings, leaves and as much as you can. You must dilute the manure before applying it. So the best thing to use is everything you have.

Organic Farming Mistakes

Look it’s really trial and error. And you may not succeed on your first try. But look at it like this. Your father or grandfather grew their plants like this. Didn’t they? Yes they did. Pause, giving you time to reminisce. That’s how I learned to do it. From my father and grandfather. They helped me now I want to help you. My daughter has learned my business from the ground up and she could probably run it backwards if she wanted to by now. That is really why I do this because I love to help people. Hey I have made many many mistakes at this and everything else I do. And I will be the first to admit it. But I just try to learn from it and help others so they won’t make the same mistakes I did. I mean really what is life all about anyway? Trying to climb the mountain of success and falling down many times before reaching the top. If you try and fail keep trying until you succeed. You will learn from your failures and one day become a great success. But if You do not try at all you can never be successful.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are the most consumed vegetables in the world. The most sold vegetable plants. And the most canned vegetable. They are used for everything from sauces to salads. And with that diversity comes great taste. There are many varieties of tomato out there today. But there’s nothing like the flavor of the heirlooms. You can’t go wrong with heirloom tomatoes. These are the tomatoes that we all grew up eating. Whether it be in soups or just eating right off the vine. Tomatoes will always be a huge part of the human diet. And no one will ever change that. So with that being said. What is the best way to grow tomatoes? In my opinion organic grown tomatoes are the healthiest tomatoes you can eat. Why? Because the earth gives us what we need to grow these vegetables without the need for pesticides or preservatives. Without all the additives the tomatoes have great flavor. So why would you want to change that.

Organic Grown Tomatoes

Organic grown tomatoes are grown from heirloom seed in organic soils using rain water to water them with. At no time should any man made chemicals or fertilizers come into contact with the plants. This is truly organic growing. And the flavor of these vegetables is nothing short of amazing. They sell easier and you can charge a little more for them because they are grown organically. Everyone wants great healthy vegetables like tomatoes and they will pay for them. Same goes for selling the organic grown vegetable plants. People really want the organic grown tomato plants. They will come for miles to get them too. And they will come back again the next year if they really like your products. Sometimes they come back every year. I would much rather make spaghetti sauce with organic grown tomatoes versus canned tomatoes anytime. If you’ve ever had Tuna Stuffed Tomato with a store bought tomato. You know exactly what I mean. The store bought tomato has hardly any flavor at all. But a organic homegrown tomato will make this dish the best you ever had. Don’t believe me try it you’ll see.

Tuna Stuffed Tomato

One red ripe tomato

One can of tuna

Mayonaise

One hard boiled egg

One half of a yellow onion

Pickle(optional)

Cut the tomato into so that it fans out. Mix tuna, mayonaise, hard boiled egg, onion. Pile the tuna salad on top of the tomato. Salt to taste. Enjoy!

Thank You

Plants That Are Easy To Grow And Guaranteed To Sell

Plants that are easy to grow and guaranteed to sell are plants that people buy every gardening season. And every garden season these plants sell. No matter whether it’s rainy or the sun is shining. People buy these plants at an enormous rate. Every year I sell out of most of these plants. Some years I sell everything that I have for sale and I’m left wondering how much more I could have sold. Plants that are easy to grow and guaranteed to sell keep the money rolling in. I have been extremely busy this year. And it’s only getting busier every year. Because people want fresh healthy produce for their families to eat. They want organic grown plants. And that is where the money comes from. When people go to buy vegetable plants they would much rather buy from a backyard grower than a chain store. Which is where they usually end up going unless they find you first.

Vegetable Plants That Are Easy To Grow And Guaranteed To Sell

We all know how easy vegetable plants are to grow. But stop and think about it. Which vegetable plants are easy to grow. And which vegetable plants are guaranteed to sell. Well really that is a pretty good question. But in my opinion there are four vegetable plants that sell the best. The rest just kinda take up space and don’t sell very well. Tomatoes is at the top of that list. Cucumbers is next. Peppers is third on the list and Squash. Yellow and Black Zucchini. You may sell some of the other plants but don’t expect to sell out. With that being said anything other than the top 4 vegetable plants just take up valuable space. Of course I do all of this in my greenhouses so space is limited.

Variety Sells When It Comes to Tomatoes

If there is one thing that I have learned over the last couple of years it is that when it comes to selling tomato plants variety sells. And the lack there of hurts your sales. This year things are gonna be different here. I will offer at least 10 different varieties of tomato plants. I could have sold so many more had I had more varieties of heirloom tomato plants. Now I’m not gonna give away all my secrets in just one post so you will have to come back to find out what other plants that are easy to grow and guaranteed to sell.

Selling Vegetable Plants Has It’s Advantages

The best thing about selling vegetable plants is that you only have to take care of them for a very short period of time and then they are ready to sell. They grow fast and sell fast. With the right kind of determination you will sell them all. Just like I have done for the last 3 years. In my next post I will talk about how to sell plants that are easy to grow and guaranteed to sell. Check out my new store www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX

Sell 5000 Plants By Next May

Sell 5000 plants by next May. Here is how I plan on doing it. You must first acquire some good seed. Buying them for the first year and growing them out. I always grow some of the plants I am selling so I can save my seed for the following years crops. Then the new seed and the plants you grow and sell will become pure profit. I do this every year. And I run this part of the business almost completely free. Yes I said free. Because I grow them organic nothing cost money. Only the heat that I use and the plants I sell pay for that. So there are really no costs. I will start my first crop of vegetable starts in late January( I have a heated greenhouse). Get them germinated and growing good. Vegetable starts are so easy to grow. And believe it or not most people would rather buy their plants from a backyard grower than a big chain store. And they will come from a good distance if you sell them great products.

Sell 5000 Plants: Getting Started

Start off with about 500-750 plants. Only grow plants that you are sure will sell. Vegetable starts is what I grow and only the most popular veggies. The secret is growing them all organic. Once the first wave of plants is growing well I will move them down the shelf and out of the way. Then I will start a second wave of plants. Once they are going and growing well. I just keep repeating the process until I have the desired amount. In about a month and a half your plants will be ready for sale. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Start selling the plants from the first wave before you start growing the third wave or you’ll end up running yourself out of space and that could lead to a big problem. Don’t start your 4th wave until you have sold over half of the first wave. Depending on how fast they are selling. There will be days when you don’t sell any. Don’t get discouraged because some days you may sell a couple hundred plants in a couple hours.

Use Bottom Heat To Speed Up Germination Of Seeds

I have a heating chamber underneath the table where I start the seeds. This chamber works hard to make my plants grow faster and stronger and it works like a dream. Last year I just bunched them all together and grew them all at the same time. Which made a lot more work for me transplanting them. This year I am going the smart route and growing each in separate containers so no transplanting. When they get big enough I can just sell them in the same containers that I started them in. No extra work. The heating chamber speeds germination rates from 2 weeks to about 5 days. Much faster than without heat. It’s really what I owe my success to. And you have to love gardening.

Selling 5000 Plants Is Not Easy

It is not as easy as it might sound. It takes some effort. But get the word out there in the right place and people will show up to hand you money for the plants. What makes it easier is growing all organic. I can’t stress this enough. People don’t want GMO’s or preservatives in their food they want what nature puts in them. Healthy organic grown vegetables. Good for you and your family. And believe me when I say organic plants sell faster than non-organic plants. One strategically placed ad could have you sold out in a week. Or take them to the farmers markets and sell them. Or you can even spread the word with some nice business cards. I always give my customers a few business cards to share with friends and keep for future business transactions. They work I promise. They bring in friends and relatives of my customers. Or even selling to family and friends. Start out small and build your business. Once you have a good reputation for sell great products you sales will be there every year. I am going to try something new this year and if it works out for me I will be writing a new post about how I sell 20000 plants a year. Good luck to you and I hope you give it your best effort. It will pay off I promise. Then next year maybe you will sell 5000 plants by May. www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX

Gardening Secrets That Make Fast Money

Gardening secrets are tips and tricks to help you garden for fun or profit. If you are a gardener you probably have many secrets that you have gathered up through the years. Things that worked great and some not so much. But you learned from it and you’ll either be doing it again because it was a success. Or you’ll never make that mistake again. Gardening secrets can either make your plants grow faster or stronger. Or maybe growing to get more produce. Here is one of my gardening secrets. When I plant seeds I use bottom heat to really get them started off right and I use the heat until they are ready to be sold. This way they get the full benefit of the heat right until the minute they are sold. I grow them in my greenhouse so that I can keep the door open and harden the plants off before I sell them also. And I always grow and sell plants that are easy to grow.

Gardening Secrets That Make Easy Money

Another one of my gardening secrets is that I grow and sell vegetable starts. This way I only have to grow them for a short period of time and sell then I’m done with them. They practically do all the work for you. Sure you have to plant them and water them. But that is pretty much it. Except sell them and that part is easy for me. Another one of my favorite gardening secrets is growing organic plants. People love organic grown plants and they will buy them just for this reason. Makes my job so much easier. There are many gardening secrets when you have been in business for a few years. Many of my secrets were learned from my father and grandfathers gardening days. They taught me the old ways and that way still works best in my opinion. Sometimes I find ways to make improvements. But when all else fails I always go back to the old ways. And last but not least is my favorite of the gardening secrets, letting nature do all the hard work for me by growing plants that spread fast. www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX

Free Garden Soil

Free garden soil is just that free. And I’m going to show you how you can get yours started today. Each week when I mow my grass I have a decision to make. Catch the grass or not. Rake the leaves or not. Here is what I do. Some weeks I catch all the grass and put it into a pile. Some weeks I just cut the grass and leave it where it lays. The reason for this is because if you always catch your grass you are stripping the ground of its vital nutrients. Nutrients that it takes to make free garden soil. If you always catch your grass your lawn will suffer. Because the soil needs to be replenished. Grass grows well when whats cut rots and returns to the ground from where it came if you take that away every week you are starving your lawn. So one week out of the month I return the cut grass to where it came from feeding the lawn the free garden soil it needs to keep growing healthy. The other 3 weeks the grass is picked up and put into the compost pile for later use. If you discard the grass clippings and they are taking it away you just gave up some free garden soil.

Leaves Make Great Free Garden Soil

When the leaves fall I have the same decisions to make. It doesn’t take long before you have a nice pile of rotting yard waste. Which is exactly what makes up good free garden soil. So I will mow the leaves at least one time every year putting them into the lawn hence fertilizing the lawn at no more cost than the gas to run the lawnmower which is a cost you already pay anyway. So in a sense you are killing two birds with one stone. Saving you money on lawn fertilizer. It makes perfect sense if you think about it. The more times you do this the better your grass will look and grow. The only reason I don’t do it every week is because I need the valuable waste for other purposes. I make free garden soil for my other garden beds. And for the soil in my greenhouses. When I mow the leaves back into the soil I makes sure to keep cutting them until they are in small, fine little tiny pieces. This turns them into soil right away benefiting the soil much faster.

Never Put Weeds In Your Free Garden Soil

Putting weed clippings in your compost pile will ultimately cause weeds to grow where you use your free garden soil and we are trying to avoid the weeds not spread them around. Avoid this at all cost or you could end up spreading poison ivy or poison oak all over the place. These two plants can spread from very tiny pieces of cuttings or roots. I always discard the weeds away from the property. I mean after all what are you trying to achieve here? Perfect garden beds and a nice lawn with no weeds correct? Well, here again if you put weeds in your compost you will have weeds wherever you spread that soil. Trust me it will happen. I have made that mistake once and I learned the hard way. Anyway you may think that the heat from the pile would kill any seeds in there. Well I’m here to tell you it won’t. I mean you will never ever have a completely weed free garden. But keeping them at a minimum will surely help. Because let’s face it that is the task that I have the least amount of time for. No seeds means no weeds.

Spreading Your New Garden Soil

When spreading your new soil I just spread it on top and till it into the existing soil. For one it will break up the compacted soil that has lost its vigor. And two it will bring that soil back to life giving you even better soil. I mean you don’t want great soil on top and depleted soil down where the roots are. You want good soil all through it. I use all organic soils. But if you wanted to you could mix in a little 10-10-10 fertilizer and make the soil even better. It’s whatever you want to do. I use all organic soils because I sell all organic products. So I only use 10-10-10 on stuff like my bamboo or some flowers that I grow for my own purposes. I hope you get some great information from this post and check out some of my other posts. Now get out there and start saving your yard waste and make some free garden soil.
