Step by step to make a home garden
This subject makes your mouth water. Who doesn’t love a salad or fresh vegetables?
Since many people are interested in learning how to grow their vegetables, herbs and legumes, we decided to do a step by step for you to also hit the your Home Garden.
This walkthrough is based on my experience:
1. I used 4 plastic boxes of 39 L x 59 L x 31 P.
2. The crates have been drilled on the sides and bottoms to ensure excellent drainage.
3. At the bottom I put chopped Styrofoam to serve as a drainage layer.
4. I put a draining blanket so that the soil does not leak during watering.
5. The soil is a mixture of garden substrate and earthworm humus. I added a little bit of Forth Plantio because I find it very useful at this time. The appropriate amount is indicated on the packaging. In each box were 1 bag of 25K of substrate + 10K of earthworm humus.
6. I sowed in May 21. I used seeds from: Brussels sprouts, Portuguese coriander, beetroot, radish, chicory, spinach, mustard and hanson lettuce (this was the only one that didn’t germinate). Remember that the depth, spacing, quantity of seeds and the correct time to sow is described on the packaging. Follow the instructions.
7. I separated the top part of beets and carrots and also put them to root. I did the same process with garlic, ginger and sweet potatoes. All sprouted.
1. Gardens need sun. At least, the whole morning sun (4 to 6 hours).
2. Water every day without soaking.
3. After they germinate, you will need to separate the best seedlings and replant with adequate spacing for them to develop. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
The latest photos and video are from July 5th and the garden is still in full development.
And then? Make mouth water? How about starting your garden?
