Starting a Vegetable Garden – The Lazy Man’s Way
Article by Rob Ethrington
Starting a vegetable garden is laborious. Indeed, you need to put in a tremendous amount of effort and attention. On cooler months you have to allow your garden beds to rest, thus no harvest to bring home.
Also, conventional vegetable garden method requires you to correct imbalanced soils.
According to a gardening book I read a while ago, applying inorganic fertilizers as well as planting green manure crops is necessary in order to improve soils imbalance.
And then there’s the weeding, pesticides application, minimizing the effects of mineral depletion by performing crop rotation, and many other physical and mind numbing chores.
Yes…starting a vegetable garden and maintaining it is a real CHORE…
Now wait a minute…Noticed I use the phrase “conventional vegetable garden method”? Okay look, if you’re interested in doing all the things I just mentioned, then the conventional way of doing vegetable gardening is right up your alley.
However, if you’re somewhat lazy like I am, yet still keen on growing an enormous amount of vegetables – specifically organic vegetables – then I have just the thing for you!
See, the official term for this remarkable gardening method is ecological micro-ecosystem gardening. But I call it starting a vegetable garden the lazy man’s way!
Indeed, the ecological gardening method is the lazy man’s way of growing fresh and healthy organic vegetables. This is due to the fact that it requires virtually no maintenance.
An ecological garden is able to self-maintain and also produce lots of organic food on a regular basis.
The planting system of an ecological garden is unique in that it keeps weeds from growing in your garden and prevents pests from damaging your crops – naturally!
You what this means right? Yes, no more digging annoying weeds and spraying potentially harmful pesticides.
Crop rotation is also unnecessary because the mixed-up nature of an ecological garden planting scheme neutralizes the effects of mineral depletion. The cardinal rules of starting an ecological vegetable garden:
You need to plant several different edible plants within a given space or area. The plants have to be compactly planted by the way.
Bare patches are applied with a layer of compost which you can make from organic waste you produce daily. Make sure you establish a quality composting system for this purpose.
Once everything is set up, you only need to spend a few hours a year maintaining it. It’s practically the perfect lazy man’s gardening method.
Look, starting a vegetable garden can be extremely easy if you implement the ecological gardening planting system. Setting it up is also very simple and fully demonstrated in a series of step-by-step video tutorials and complete project plan guide which you can print out.

Are small farms and gardens going to be against the law? Well if the liberals in congress have their way it will be. This ridiculous law is just one of many that congress is going to push on us to protect us. Well I for one am getting damn tied of losing my freedoms to the government in the name of protecting me. I can protect myself. I dont need the help of the federal government. All that I need is that they stay out of my way. As is stated in this video, this law will only hurt small business. It will just create another layer of federal bureaucracy to further hinder small farms, and small organic farms. While, as is usual for most laws, it will not help us at all, or very little. If I have to die of salmonella to keep my freedoms, then I am willing to die, because like they say, freedom is not free. So if I understand this law correctly, the government will now monitor what you are growing in your own garden, what food you buy at your local grocery store, and even the fruits and vegetables that you buy at your local farmers market, what a joke. This is what is coming to America, total government control of your life, from what you eat, where you go, who you see, where your children go to school, what your children learn at school, etc. etc., I could go on and on. Just what part of total government control would someone not understand? Is this what Americans want? I dont think so, so we had better start acting up or this what we will get. jbranstetter04 …
