Organic gardening: How to grow an organic vegetable garden

Ron Corning from discusses getting started in organic gardening with Scott Meyer, editor of Organic Gardening magazine. Scott says that situating your vegetable garden properly will make a huge difference. You need a plot that gets eight to ten hours of sun a day, good soil drainage, and not too big a size to start. Four by eight or ten is a good starting size. The only tools and materials you need to dig a plot and prepare it are wooden stakes, twine, a spade, and a garden fork. He also talks about an alternative process he calls lasagne where he lays newspaper, grass clippings, and straw on top of your sod and not digging. You nourish an organic garden with compost, not chemical fertilizers. Mulch will help keep weeds from germinating in your organic garden. Mulch will also help preserve water. You can even start a garden later in the season with green beans, herbs, and salad greens.
