Nevertheless, there are still many people fortunate enough to have open land outside their houses where they can make their own flower gardens or kitchen gardens. This book is going to tell you how to make an organic kitchen garden for pleasure and also for profit. Just like any other garden, a little bit of planning has to go into making your vegetable garden. It should have sufficient paths in it so that you can wheel about manures etc. in barrows, if necessary. You may also want to remove all the green vegetal rubbish accumulating while gardening. There is absolutely no need for your garden to be all paths if it is pocket-sized and you are strapped for space. In small gardens one path at one side is more than enough. Whatever the size of your organic vegetable garden may be, this book is going back to traditional methods of growing vegetables in a healthy manner. We are not talking about chemical fertilizers and poisonous pesticides. Instead, we are going to talk about natural manure, compost, and other traditional methods used by our forefathers to get a good healthy crop for family and neighbors. Many people out there would not want to grow all kinds of vegetables because hey, how many of us like eating greens? But then the moment we see them growing in our gardens and we pluck our first harvest, we begin to think in terms of healthy eating, especially when the meals have been made of organic vegetables grown in our own backyard. Your main priority is to see that the ground is fully occupied for most of the year and that no part of your garden is wasted. Think Japanese gardens. They know how to utilize every single inch of space and get the most out of it. All right, you may see their gardens on a small scale, but no inch of soil in a farm is left uncultivated if they can help it. This may look crowded, but it is not. So let us consider ourselves gardening newbies and begin our journey towards achieving the goal of the perfect long-term organic vegetable kitchen garden right now. Remember that your kitchen garden is not going to be restricted to just vegetables. You can also grow herbs in it. Who is stopping you from growing flowers in it? Your aim is to plan your kitchen garden in such a way that you gain lots of pleasure from it, and then you may decide to carry on to the profit stage.

This is the French word for what is a kitchen garden. In Scotland, they call it a Kailyaird, or simply the yard where you are going to grow your family’s necessary requirements of fresh fruit and vegetables, depending on the space available. During the First World War this was called a Victory garden. This is the place which is not going to be cluttered up with lots of sweet smelling blossoms. It is going to be reserved just for vegetables and herbs, which are ready to go right into your cooking pot. Also, the lawn area is definitely not going to be utilized in the making of a potager. Leave that particular area to the grass. A kitchen garden – also known as a vegetable plot – has been used by mankind for centuries, in order to grow their own vegetables. That is because man would rather have easy access to his food, then go out hunting for it. And that is what made him add fruit and vegetables to his daily diet, instead of substance on just animal products like meat, fish, and game, which needed to be hunted in all weather, depending on the need and requirement of the tribe and family. And that is why he began domesticating farm animals. But we, a large number of us who are town dwellers or city dwellers, have supposedly lost touch with our roots, no pun intended, and that is why we can not imagine ourselves grubbing in the family farms or plots, from dawn to dusk, in order to get enough of a harvest to feed our families.
