This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Safer® brand. All opinions are 100% mine.I always admire my husband's dedication to his gardening. We have a very small backyard but every summer we always get plenty of sweet, juicy, plump tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and beans. Oh, did I forget the hot peppers? And chayotes? This year I also noticed that our persimmon tree gave us so many fruits we couldn't seem to finish even after we had distributed them to friends and relatives who testified to their extra sweetness. Want to know the reason why?
After a rain, I noticed a gross-looking gooey mixture in a pot close to our persimmon tree. Not wanting to "disturb" it, I tipped the pot so its content will just pour into the base of the tree. Oh, I can never forget that smell! When I told hubby about it, he told me about his composting technique. No wonder he didn't want me to throw (or even touch) any peelings from the veggies he cooked with. He would keep everything in a plastic bag and keep it in his "secret" place. I also came to understand why he never went to buy any of those chemical fertilizers.
Want to know more about the benefits of organic gardening? Visit saferbrand.com for very helpful gardening tips and advice. It even has it's own library of bugs and insects to help you of which bugs to keep and which ones to let go, without using any chemicals that might be harmful to your own plants. (No, problem, those ladybugs are plant friendly.) Do you know that chemical fertilizers can harm you progressively? No wonder so many, children and adults alike, are getting sick everyday of illnesses that were not here before.
