Try to avoid letting your organic garden chores build up. If your busy life prevents you from tending your garden every day, do small tasks to avoid having so much work when you do have some time. Try pulling a few weeds from the garden while your dogs are out doing their business.
Using a soaker hose to water the garden is probably your best choice. The water comes out very slowly and evenly, and the hose can be placed exactly where water is needed, such as at the roots. Soaker hoses need less water than their sprinkler counterparts, and it takes less of your time to use one than it does to water each plant by hand.
You can find a lot of information on how to keep any unwanted pests away by researching local botanical insecticides. All insecticides are strong, including botanical ones. However, due to their biological makeup, botanical insecticides often have very fast decay periods and disappear rapidly.
Grow garlic. Plant garlic cloves individually. Do this in early spring or during the fall in moist and well drained soils. Plant them two inches into the soil with the ends up, and leave four inches between each clove. Green garlic shoots, which can be cut while growing, can substitute nicely for scallions or chives. Harvest the garlic bulbs when the tops of the plants turn brown. After harvesting, leave the bulbs out in the sun until the skin hardens. This helps them dry out. You can go ahead and store them in a cooler area, and you can either keep them loose or tie them up.
Create biodiversity in your garden. The different types of plants will draw a variety of wildlife to your garden. Try replicating nature by creating a garden with a variety of different plants. This will make your garden enjoyable, and you will also be doing the right thing environmentally.
