A few considerations:
*Small children. With little ones active in working and consuming the gardens, gave us concern over some methods of pest control, herbicides, and fertilizers.
*Home well. Having the source of our water right here on the property leads us to further question conventional resources and their effect on water supply.
*Stocks and flocks. Our animals graze the gleanings throughout the garden season. After reading the labels of most garden products we realized how many are dangerous to them.
Now that we have defined our garden type or style, it's time to look at what we do to handle the pests, problems, and nuisances plaguing the homestead garden. Join me tomorrow as we peek into the tool shed for a look at methods, products and plans for our natural organic garden.
