Here are the 4 specific steps I give in this video about organic gardening/vegetable gardening:
1. Increase the organic matter content of your soil with quality organic compost, mulch and cover crops. Organic matter does so many important things for soil and plant health.
2. Improve the fertility balance of your soil with appropriate mineral organic fertilizers like lime and rock phosphate. But you need to use the right ones – people often use dolomite lime or sources of potassium that can cause major problems, even though they’re organic.
3. This is very interesting. This is where organic gardening is heading. You want to increase the diversity of beneficial organisms in your organic garden with, again, compost, and microbial inoculants such as compost tea and effective microorganisms.
4. Provide broad spectrum nutrition directly to plants by spraying products such as concentrated ocean water and kelp, and homemade fertilizers such as herbal teas and urine – yes urine, which I know is gross to some people, but it’s a really great fertilizer for those who are comfortable using it.
