Hey there, fellow traditional homemakers out there! Are you looking for a way to add more life to your home and to create homecooked meals for your family straight from your own garden? Well, you've come to the right place! Gardening has been a way of life for many of us, traditional women who want to lead a life of simplicity and timeless values. In this blog post, we'll go over the basic needs for a garden so you can start growing your fresh fruits and veggies in no time!

Location - You don't have to have a large backyard to start gardening. A small patch of land in your backyard or even a sunny windowsill can do the trick. If you live in an apartment, you can start with a few potted plants on your balcony. Make sure the location you choose has access to sunlight and water. Even if you have to start small, it's always worth the effort!

Soil - Once you've determined your gardening location, it's time to prepare the soil. The right soil for your garden depends on what kind of plants you'll be growing. Some plants need well-draining soil, while others prefer clay soil. You can always do a soil test to determine what kind of soil you have, and what needs improvement. Adding compost or even mulch can help improve the quality of your soil and help your plants thrive.

Water - Plants need water to grow, but over or under watering can be detrimental to their growth. It's important to water your plants at the right time of day and in the right amount. Generally, plants need around 1 inch of water per week, but it may vary depending on the type of plant and location. Consistency is key, so make sure you create a watering schedule and stick to it.

Fertilizer - Fertilizer is used to replenish the nutrients that plants need to grow healthy and strong. There are many options for fertilizers in the market, but you can also opt for organic fertilizers that you can make at home. Chicken manure or compost are great natural options. Just make sure to research what kind of fertilizer is best for your specific plants.

Maintenance - Once you've set up your garden, the next step is to maintain it. Plants need care and attention to thrive. Make sure you're following the care instructions for each plant and trimming them regularly. Weeds can be a garden's worst enemy, so make sure to pull them out as soon as you spot them.

Gardening may seem daunting at first, but with the right materials and approach, it's a fulfilling and enjoyable experience that can last for years. As modern traditional women, we strive for a life full of love and simplicity, and gardening helps us achieve that. You'll feel the joy of cooking up a delicious meal for your family with ingredients straight from your own garden. So, follow these basics and start farming your own little piece of paradise. Happy gardening, ladies!
