in Plant

 Starting a garden can provide you with fun and rewards.  You can start by setting out a small area for your garden.  If you don't have the area you can use pots to put your vegetables and flowers in.  Your garden plants require Sun, Water, and food.  You will want your garden in an area that will receive a lot of sun and is close to water.  For example if you had tomato pots they would need to be in the sun and watered. You would need to supply them with essential minerals for them to grow. One of the ways to supply food for your plants is right from your home. You can feed your plants with compost gathered from your kitchen and yard.

  You can set up a home compost unit and use what is in your yard to fill the compost unit and use the compost to feed your plants.  Other way is using worms to make compost.  You can turn kitchen scraps, paper waste and cardboard into nutrient-rich fertilizer for your plants, creating a more sustainable lifestyle by recycling and improving soil quality.  Both plants and animals, including humans, benefit from a regular supply of the trace minerals present in Glacial Rock Dust, which are best transferred to the human body through foods grown in soil rich in trace minerals.  This will provide your plants with a very rich organic food, which will in turn provide you with healthy plants and great food.

  When gardening with pots you can set up each pot for organic flowers or organic vegetables.  Setting up your pots with soil and adding your organic food from your compost unit, and trace minerals.  You will be able to watch your plants grow large and beautiful. For beginners, a plot 3 feet by 3 feet is an adequate size. Or plant no more than half a dozen good-sized pots. You will find that you can use rain water to water your plants.  You can do this by setting up rain barrels at your down spout.  It gives you a great feeling when you can use the things around you and provide your family with food for the table, or flowers to dress up the house.

  Making your own organic food by using your Worm composter.  You will be becoming green.  You will start growing your own green thumb when you see "Your Plants Grow". So don't miss out because you're afraid you have a "brown thumb."  You can use pots to get you started or a small plot.  Let your plants get lots of Sun, Water and Food you will have a garden.
