NO TILL GARDENING

No-Till Gardening 


If You Love Your Soil, Ditch the Tiller

Tillers seem to be that go-to tool we’ve always used for what it was made to do - break up the earth. We till to clear a plot to start a garden, turn weeds under, or just mix up the soil.

 

But is tilling really the best way to get your soil in shape? While it might be the easiest and fastest way to start, it’s not the best way. No-till gardening is where it’s at. If you love your soil, ditch the tiller!

Miss Gardening? Grow Green Beans Indoors This Winter

 

Read now

 

For gardeners who just can’t stand to keep their hands out of the soil for any length of time, growing food indoors in containers can be a great pastime during the winter months.

 

Green beans are a relatively quick-growing vegetable that can be grown inside your home and also look quite beautiful, as well.

 

Plants that you are growing indoors can be started any time of the year, but you still need to remember that they have certain environmental requirements. Green beans need plenty of light, so you will need to place them in a part of your home where they can get a minimum of six hours of sunlight each day. Alternatively, grow lights can work if you do not have a window that gets enough sun.
