To cultivate it is not necessary to be an agricultural entrepreneur

Cultivating is like being passionate about DIY and like when you build something, you feel that sense of satisfaction, that enormous gratification, in the same way you feel when you see the sprout of what is sown with love. Everyone can be passionate about gardening and crops in general. He can cultivate the simple housewife on the terrace of his house, as well as anyone in his urban garden. Since ancient times, agriculture has been the first resource of man and then, with the knowledge that human beings have put and with the technological science that has made great strides, we have found ourselves in a it was where agriculture gave space even to the so-called organic crops that today are so appreciated by consumers because finally after years of studies, on our tables come those renowned organic products, treated without chemical pesticides. Here, the cultivation becomes also for anonymous people, a kind of hobby aimed above all, to act scrupulously and to adopt what are the main rules to use anti-cryptogamic and natural insecticide do-it-yourself.

Grow a vegetable garden on the terrace of your home

As we said, even a simple housewife can, with love and dedication, grow her backyard on the terrace of her house. It is not difficult or impractical, it is enough to have good will and follow precise rules maybe found on the web, advice from more experienced people who love to cultivate with passion and a sense of awareness. If you wish, you can also cultivate using the organic method, using ecological products to make dates. You will finally have very fresh vegetables that grow with satisfaction under your eyes. Daily, you can admire the nature that allows the seeds you planted to sprout and grow healthy and lush. If you are a lover of organic food, if you really intend to take advantage of empty spaces on your terrace, you can do it very well by starting, if you are a beginner, with aromatic herbs, the ones you use daily in the kitchen. As containers, you can use recycled materials so you will begin your ecological journey immediately. Practically, with this nice idea, you will have a bottled vegetable garden and with plastic bottles you will start your adventure. The idea comes from PET plastic. Start immediately by getting some plastic bottles. Cut them by removing about 10 centimeters of the bottle including the cap. On the half of the bottle that remains there, drill a small hole in the bottom with a screwdriver. Fill the bottle with good soil mixed with peat. Fill the half bottle of water and mix well with the earth that will be soft and moist. Place a saucer under the bottle. Here is your small vegetable garden. Now let's see what to plant in the containers.

What to plant

You can start with the basil that you plant in March that always needs well-drained soil and you will expose the container with the seeds to the sun and you will leave it there for all the time of growth and flowering because this plant needs a lot of sun to grow lush. Between March and July, you will also plant the parsley seeds and place the container in a place where too much current does not circulate because this plant needs a temperate climate. Celery instead, should be planted from January to July and you will place the container next to that of parsley because celery also needs a temperate climate. When you have become familiar, you can finally start planting some larger vegetables. Have large garden containers brought to the terrace that are usually white and already drilled for drainage, complete with saucer. Also buy sticks or racks because you will be able to take advantage of some plants to climb. Begin by planting lettuce that really grows very soon. You can plant the seeds from February to August and even after a few weeks after sowing, you will have the great satisfaction of seeing the seedlings sprout. If you use carrots, a food rich in vitamin A, you can plant them between February and March and collect the vegetable between August and September. To preserve your crops from aphids and scale insects, plant garlic, onions and leeks so you will get effective protection from these insects that are harmful to your other crops. If possible, place a pot with small hedges behind the container where you have planted your vegetables, which will protect crops from cold and night frosts. The ideal hedge is the Privet. And speaking of climbing plants. Would you like to grow tomatoes and also get the creeping effect? Well, you can do it with the help of a support.
So when you plant the seeds, you will apply around the area where you planted them, even the trellis you bought. The tomatoes suffer terribly from the cold so start planting them in March. Keep in mind that tomatoes do not like being in the company of other plants and therefore you will have to use a virgin soil without any root. You should use seedlings instead of seeds and plant them about 30 centimeters apart from each other. Watering must be abundant and regular but must be carried out slowly to allow the water to spray the soil well. The tomato needs a lot of sun to ripen and be firm but above all not to let the roots get moldy. Therefore the vessel is located in a very sunny spot on the terrace.

Cultivating an urban garden

Today the urban garden is cultivated as large farms do, with sustainability, with the use of green ecological compounds. Although it does not seem obvious, many people between asphalt and concrete cultivate their own vegetable garden and do so in such a way as to increase urban biodiversity and improve their quality of life. It is wonderful to prepare a caprese, with the tomatoes from your own vegetable garden as it is satisfying and gratifying, add to the foods basil and parsley grown on a small plot of city land. In just a few square meters of land, to improve the livability, to attract beautiful animals, to purify the air, it seems to live in a kind of pure and uncontaminated oasis. And it is precisely oasis it is because the urban garden, not being of enormous proportions, has the power to change moods to those who cultivate it as if it were miles and miles away from a consumerist and technological civilization. In short, a meeting place where sovereign tranquility and well-being reign. A good farmer, if he can be defined as the one who cultivates the small garden, knows that he can easily put on his table elements that are not only very fresh but also not treated with chemical insecticides that are very harmful to health. He knows that he can safely feed his loved ones the fruit, without eliminating the peel because everything is uncontaminated and genuine. In fact, scrupulousness is tangible, satisfaction is immense, the joy of cultivating becomes almost a requirement. Growing a garden in the city is a revolutionary choice as well as courageous. If you do not have even a few square meters of land available and would really like to cultivate, do not be discouraged but ask the town council of your town. In fact, many municipal administrations make small plots of land available to citizens where you can abandon yourself without any limit to your passion.
