Simply Organic Garden
Organic Veggies: Delicious & Nutritious

US MED Gives BackFood is at its best, when it is organic and it is simply more nutritious and delicious. The nutritional value of organic food surpasses that of any other. They contain higher levels of Vitamins C, D, and E; Cancer fighting antioxidants, flavonoids that help ward off heart disease, fatty acids, and essential minerals. Organic food is safer because they don't contain harmful pesticides, which can be toxic.

Follow these simple steps to grow your own Simply Organic Garden!

7 steps to getting started:

1. Start small. Find a spot with the most sun year round. If it's shaded some time during the year that's fine.

2. Remove all debris, including rocks larger than a finger nail.

3. Cover your garden with organic material. Leaves, dried grass, plant material that has not been sprayed with pesticide.

4. Grab a bucket filled with good compost. Spread it thinly over your garden.

5. Use a pick or shovel to mix the top 3 inches of soil and organic material. Keep your soil moist, like a wrung out sponge.

6. Never walk on your soil. Use old cushions for your knees. Create a small pathway to navigate around your garden. Place a piece of plywood on your walk way.

7. Do not apply any pesticides or weed killers, to the soil in your garden. Use a soap-based organic pesticide! Pour 1 cup of vegetable oil into a clean spray bottle. Add 1 tsp. of liquid dish soap and shake well until the mixture has thickened and turned opaque. Add 1 qt. of warm tap water.

Then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
