Since we started our Garden Project 2015, we have all found a love for gardening. Not only do I go out and garden every morning, but many times my husband and three year old son do as well. Picking flowers from our garden, eating the peppers or tomatoes we get, or even just looking at the plants brings so much joy to all of us. It is very infectious.
We also found out how much we absolutely LOVE the taste of homegrown vegetables. Seriously, there is nothing better than grabbing a tomato, and some basil fresh from outside your house and have a delicious snack. It simply does not compare to a supermarket tomato, no matter how fresh, it says it is.
We were offered the chance to try out the Urban & Suburban Organic Gardening Kit. We jumped at the chance to be able to have our own vegetable garden. As much work as it can be I thought this was a good way to start. I had started our flower garden with a kit and it was much easier since I am a beginner gardener.
The Urban & Suburban Organic Gardening Kit includes 37 varieties of organic, non-hybrid, non-GMO, open-pollinated seeds strategically chosen to be planted in summer, fall, winter and spring gardens, there are different varieties of arugula, beets, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, parsley, sweet peppers, radish, spinach, squash, swiss chard and tomatoes. The kit also includes Diatomaceous Earth with Calcium Bentonite, a natural pest control powder that won’t harm any children or pets that may get into it. There are also seeds for cover crops that naturally build the fertility of your soil, and you also get a mix of seeds to grow plants which specifically draw good insects to pollinate your garden and eat the bad bugs.
All the seeds in the Urban & Suburban Organic Gardening Kit come from a family that is part of the “eat local” movement. These are seeds from their family garden. The book that comes with the kit I found extremely helpful it tells you everything you need to get started. It talks about the pros and cons of container, raised bed, lasagna and regular gardens and talks about the permaculture design of mixing plant varieties instead of keeping everything in a neatly laid out plan. The idea is if you were a hungry insect it is much harder to hunt down your favorite plant if it is not next to the one you just ate. There is a plethora of information in the book on how to start the garden. I was extremely impressed with all the different varieties of vegetables as well as the inclusion of Diatomaceous Earth with Calcium Bentonite, which I have heard works wonders for organic gardens.
I received this product to test out in the southeast in July. Unfortunately, we just do not garden much in 90 degree heat. So we started our compost and are working on our plan for our vegetable garden and what will go into what type of garden. If you noticed there is now a garden tab on the blog. Since I am a mom that is not the best at crafting, and there are a million mom bloggers who are, I figured I would stick to cooking and gardening. Gardening is an extremely easy, relaxing, cheap and fun hobby to have for your entire family. We look forward to making our vegetable garden. Nothing lights up our son’s face more than eating a tomato that he saw grows from a seed. So I encourage you to get out and garden and if you are a beginner or in an extremely hot zone (zone 8 to be correct) stick with this blog and check out the garden tab for information and fun tips and tricks. We look forward to posting more pictures and information about how the Urban & Suburban Organic Gardening Kit will work out. Our first crops we are planting in the fall.
The fall is a great time to start a vegetable garden for many places order yours to get started on Organic Gardening, you can purchase Urban & Suburban Organic Gardening Kit from Amazon. You can find out more from their website, MyAbundantLiving.com
