How to Grow a Garden This Spring

[adinserter block="11"]

It's Spring! The tree-lined streets are scented with beautiful flowers. Farmers' markets are full of freshly harvested herbs, fruits, and vegetables. And while enjoying nature and organic and table foods, he never thought of growing his own garden because he just doesn't have the time.

Is it possible when you have a demanding schedule? Or maybe you've thought about it but felt, I don't know, intimidated (we're raising a hand). Some of us are not even sure we can keep a cactus alive!

You can grow plants for just 10-15 minutes a day. They really want to be in the backyard and appreciate the beauty of the backyard, but they don't feel like they have time to devote to having a successful garden.

A little gardening goes a long way. So there is hope. Read on if you've already killed a succulent or if you're under the impression that you don't have time to grow a garden.

Mint

If you have five minutes, this aromatic herb is among our favorites. Not only does it smell as good as it is refreshing and is a natural pest repellent, but it is also an amazing tea for calming nerves and anxiety. Added bonus? Because you know what else is mint for? Mojitos.

How to grow: Start with peppermint seeds and a large, deep pot about 10 inches in diameter. The mint will grow fast and spread. Fill the container with potting soil and plant the seeds.

Microgreens

Microgreens are another quick plant that only takes five minutes to establish. These nutrient-dense plants are, as the name suggests, very small, young, and tender edible leaves. Microgreens have even more nutrients than their adult counterparts, depending on their species. Preparing a dish from the plant requires as little maintenance as growing it. Add vinaigrette and strawberries and you have a seasonal salad!

How to grow: Buy a variety of seeds like dill, beets, basil, kale, orchard. Fill a shallow pot with a drainage hole or a seedling tray with the substrate. Dampen the soil with water to moisten it but not wet it. Sprinkle the seeds together and sift a thin layer of soil over these seeds. Using a spray bottle, lightly mist the top layer of soil.

Watering: Place your seedlings on a sunny window sill in a room that is between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the little plant that will germinate in three to five days and requires quick daily misting of the soil.

Carrots

If you have 10 minutes to spare, this is for you. This root vegetable is best known for improving eyesight, but the phytochemicals in carrots can also reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Basically, eat carrots! Toast the superfood for a simple, healthy meal. We are getting ahead of ourselves though, see below how to grow the veggie, which starts sprouting in two weeks!

How to grow: You will need carrot seeds and a container or planter 1.5 meters deep and wide. You'll also want drainage holes at the bottom. Fill the container about 1 inch from the top of the container with potting soil, you need to water the soil before planting the seeds.
Then it says: Plant the seeds an inch apart in rows six inches apart, gently pressing the seeds into the ground and covering them with a thin layer of that soil. Water again!

Basil

It only takes 10 minutes to prepare this herb for success. Among the many benefits of this aromatic and flavorful herb are its anti-inflammatory, cancer-fighting, and pain-reducing properties.4 It's also great for cocktails like a cranberry basil whiskey and it's the MVP in pesto, just to say the least.

How to grow: Buy seeds and a container at least four inches wide with good drainage holes. Basil loves warm temperatures and lots of sunlight, at least six hours of direct sunlight a day.

Watering: You will need to water it once a day. Fertilization and pruning are also important. It will take 10 minutes once a month to fertilize the soil. Use organic fertilizers like compost tea. Regarding pruning, explain that it should start as soon as the plant is six inches tall and busier. Make sure to cut any flowers that appear as well.

Rosemary

In addition to the dreamy scent, this herb is rich in antioxidants that can help limit weight gain and improve cholesterol levels. Need to say more? We are listening ...

How to grow: Start by planting seeds or propagating seedlings in a container with holes in the bottom for drainage. For rosemary, this takes 15 minutes as you need to cure the soil on the plant. What you need: Soil made from a mixture of two parts of potting soil with one part of coarse sand. Next, you will need to add a teaspoon of lemon (agricultural type, not citrus!) Per two inches of pot to alkalize the soil.

Watering: Water only when the soil surface is dry to the touch. Be careful that the soil does not dry out completely, you need to live in a sunny place and receive at least six hours of direct sunlight.

Tomatoes

This vegetable is among the main anticancer foods. Tomatoes get their red hue from a phytochemical called lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant. There is also evidence to support the idea that the potential to fight cancer is increased if tomatoes are consumed in the form of tomato sauce. Hello, pizza and pasta.

How to grow: Start with a 6-inch pot for one plant and fill the container with starting potting soil. Plant the seeds about 1/4 inch deep. Water and keep the soil moist but not soggy, and then place the container in an area that receives a substantial amount of light. Make sure to flip the pan every few days so all sides are submerged in the sun.

Expect the seeds to germinate in five to 10 days. When they reach three inches, transplant the starting mix into the potting soil. Two weeks after transplanting, add organic fertilizer.

Watering: Follow the rule of keeping them moist but not soggy. Also, the plant may need to be staked as it grows to prevent breakage.

Scallions

Do you want to know how simple chives are? No seeds needed! Scallions, which are part of the Allium family, are associated with protecting the body from free radicals and protecting against cancer. It is also a great alternative to onions this season because they are less hot.

How to grow: Buy a bunch of chives, preferably at the farmers market, and put the entire bunch (yes, all of it) in a glass with an inch of water. Change the water daily, which should take less than five minutes. When new green shoots appear and the roots are doubling (this should take seven to 10 days), plant the chives in a small, shallow pot.

Watering: Keep plants watered evenly, also known as don't let the soil get too dry before rehydrating again. Chives should also get full sun, which is at least six hours a day.
