Some very VERY good news!

Hello everyone!
Let’s cut the long story short: a few weeks after struggling to find the cheapest paper pot maker, I found a letter in my inbox from the nice guy from USA who makes a next generation paper pot makers! They are even better than the wooden ones as
Pot Maker1) They are made from vinyl, NOT from wood so by buying them you save a forests. 😉
2) They are VERY cheap in comparison with the wooden ones. So you save your money!
3) Other pot making devices require you to struggle getting potting soil into the pot, properly moistened and compressed without damaging the pot you just made. So you save your time and nerves!

He offered me to become a dealer and of course I agreed. I’ve made a new page where you can buy Next Generation Paper Pot Maker for just 9.93$! This is an amazing price for such gadget and it is currently the lowest price on the Web!
So from now on if you are looking to buy one this is the right place to do that. I am not kidding and I am so sure this is the lowest price that I promise to send you the difference back if you’ll find this tool any cheaper. :) However I do not recommend you to do that as it is waste of time. You could spend it in the garden 😀

The other news a wanted to share with you all: I’ve reduced the price for home garden seeds from 5$ to 3.99$ in order for you to be able to save a dollar because of the financial crisis.  😉 And the shipping is FREE by the way.

At the end I want to thank all people who has signed to my RSS feed and who has requested to receive updates via email. That means someone likes what I am writing about and it makes me think that the popularity of organic living will continue to grow.  Thank you all! Let’s force the world to change!

How to grow carrots

Carrots. This vegetable is loaded with vitamins, taste good, help to control your weight, good for your skin and blood.

There are a few ways of planting carrot home garden seeds. But before planting them don’t forget to prepare soil. Work it deeply adding some compost or peat moss. Try to remove stones as in may affect downward formation of the roots.

Carrot seeds are one of the smallest of home garden seeds and it is important to thin the seedlings before crowding impairs their growth. There are two tricks you can use:
1) You can add several scoops of fresh coffee grounds to the mixture. It will help you space the carrot seeds by increasing the volume you have to pick up. The grounds will also help repel pests, as well as help fertilize the soil.
2) Also you can add some radish home garden seeds to the mixture. The radishes will sprout first, so you will be able to see where your rows are. It will also help you space the carrots out more when you cultivate them.

After the carrot home garden seeds have germinated, I recommend you to thin them to two inches apart.

Keep them well weeded early in the season. Carrots are easily overcrowded, and weeds usually winning out.

They also need a good supply of water, in soil that drains well. They respond well to fertilizer applied prior to sowing carrot seeds, and a couple of times during the season.

Carrots are ready to pick approximately 65 to 75 days, depending upon their sort.

Buy carrot seeds from my shop for just 5$ including the delivery!

How to make compost

First step of compostImage via Wikipedia

Today I want to write about one very important thing for all gardeners. In fact the normal gardener will not plant home garden seeds without using it first.  I am sure you all have it somewhere in your garden. It’s called compost pile.

To make a good compost for planting your home garden seeds or seedlings, you need organic material plus microbes (bacteria, fungi, etc.) and other small creatures that will break down that material.

In order to get the best compost the most quickly, you’ll have to keep the microbes happy. The three elements for making them happy are: the right amount of moisture, enough oxygen, and the right types of food.

Let’s talk about the food first.

A lot of people add special chemicals but there is a much better way to have a great harvest.  It is cost effective (actually it won’t cost you anything!), healthier and easy. The secret is – nature around you. Yes, the nature and nowadays mass production gives a lot for your compost heap.

To survive, the bacterias in your compost pile need carbon and nitrogen.

Make a Self Watering Container from 2 litres bottle.

Ok, guys, today I want to write about saving our money again.
All of us probably have seen self-watering containers in the shops or markets. Some of us probably use them to grow home garden seeds. They are really good for those who have to visit their family or friends during the summer and don’t want to kill their plants and vegetables. But these containers cost a lot. Not everyone can afford to buy them. I am also guessing that some of us wanted to build self-watering container themselves, they saw a lot of tutorials on the Web but 95% of the tutorials ask to buy garden containers anyway, drill them and all that sort of things.  I don’t know about you, but am too lazy to do that (I know I shouldn’t say that but at least I will be fair with myself :) ). But today I’ve found the tutorial for making a self watering container from 2 litres bottle and I think this is the easiest and best way to make it. It takes maximum 10 minutes and costs virtually nothing. You will be able to plant home garden seeds straight away! Have a look on the video-tutorial from Youtube. I hope you’ll find it useful. :)
P.s. If you are busy and can’t spend a lot of time in your garden, you also may want to buy vegetable and tree Ooze Tube.

Soil preparation for planting.

I am going to write about soil preparation whether it is indoors or outdoors. soil preparation for home garden

For indoor herb garden it is very simple: All you need to do is to get a potting soil (it is better to use organic potting soil) and put it in to the pot (not to the top. It is better to leave about 1 inch of space).
Use small pots if you want to plant home garden seeds. They don’t need big pots. And that’s all for growing herbs indoors.

When it comes to outdoor soil preparation, what you need to do once you have your location ready:

1) Make sure that it is completely clean.
2) Then you have to loosen your soil using shovel and then follow it with the rake. It will help you to release roots from other plants that were in the soil. Try to remove them completely.
3) Sprinkle it a little bit with potting soil from the market and mix it up using rake.
4) Select the area where you want to plant your home garden seeds and dig small holes.
The soil will be dry and it’s ok for it to be like that as you have to control the water drainage for most of the herbs.
Add a little bit of potting soil in the holes.
That’s all! Easy isn’t it? :)

I wish I could be read better in Spanish, but I found a great site that will be of help with my veggies. Most tutoring net companies just sell netting and have no real expertise in agriculture. Hortomallas has a great library available to farmers as tutora means tutor as referred to a plant. I ran into this site by mere chance as I was trying to find the ideal product to tutor my backyard vegetables, and did not know that using netting reduces viruses and fungi. I will try now to go 100% organic!
