It does not matter if you just have a pocket handkerchief sized backyard. If you want to know more about gardening for pleasure and gardening for profit, this book is going to give you some easy to implement tips and techniques so that you can start up this relaxing and amusing hobby right now. There is nothing quite so soul satisfying as getting your hands into rich and fertile earth and soil in order to grow something right now. You may make up a flower garden to beautify the outside of your house. A vegetable and fruit garden is going to furnish you with a continuous source of food of the best kind at a low cost. Both of these are going to give you plenty of opportunity for healthy outdoor exercise, while furnishing a source of pleasure to the one who cares for them and watches their development throughout the seasons. If you have a large yard, the vegetable and fruit gardens are going to yield you financial return, as well as keep your home table, kitchen and cellar supplied with fresh vegetables and fruit produce. Before beginning the actual work on planting, it is much more satisfactory to make a paper plan. This can be done in late winter before you intend any work done outdoors. Ask the neighboring nurseries for catalogs. You may also want to ask your neighbors about giving you some seedlings from their own gardens. This plan is going to consist of a map of your grounds drawn to a proper scale. This will show the location of the buildings, boundaries, trees, shrubbery, and other plants which have already been planted there. For example, this illustration can show you the plan of a herb garden. Along with an outer boundary limit, there is going to be an inner square, a center square, and the herbal bed areas. You can make your plan according to your own wish, but it is always sensible to ask the advice of an experienced gardener to look at your land and tell you about the right places where you can plant borders, hedges, beds, walks, and so on.

Nevertheless, there are still many people fortunate enough to have open land outside their houses where they can make their own flower gardens or kitchen gardens. This book is going to tell you how to make an organic kitchen garden for pleasure and also for profit. Just like any other garden, a little bit of planning has to go into making your vegetable garden. It should have sufficient paths in it so that you can wheel about manures etc. in barrows, if necessary. You may also want to remove all the green vegetal rubbish accumulating while gardening. There is absolutely no need for your garden to be all paths if it is pocket-sized and you are strapped for space. In small gardens one path at one side is more than enough. Whatever the size of your organic vegetable garden may be, this book is going back to traditional methods of growing vegetables in a healthy manner. We are not talking about chemical fertilizers and poisonous pesticides. Instead, we are going to talk about natural manure, compost, and other traditional methods used by our forefathers to get a good healthy crop for family and neighbors. Many people out there would not want to grow all kinds of vegetables because hey, how many of us like eating greens? But then the moment we see them growing in our gardens and we pluck our first harvest, we begin to think in terms of healthy eating, especially when the meals have been made of organic vegetables grown in our own backyard. Your main priority is to see that the ground is fully occupied for most of the year and that no part of your garden is wasted. Think Japanese gardens. They know how to utilize every single inch of space and get the most out of it. All right, you may see their gardens on a small scale, but no inch of soil in a farm is left uncultivated if they can help it. This may look crowded, but it is not. So let us consider ourselves gardening newbies and begin our journey towards achieving the goal of the perfect long-term organic vegetable kitchen garden right now. Remember that your kitchen garden is not going to be restricted to just vegetables. You can also grow herbs in it. Who is stopping you from growing flowers in it? Your aim is to plan your kitchen garden in such a way that you gain lots of pleasure from it, and then you may decide to carry on to the profit stage.
