Grow Healthy, Eat Healthy, Live longer

Gardening made simple

Gardening can be such a beautiful and rewarding experience as you connect with nature, giving nature a helping. There are many types of gardening from bromeliad gardens, flower gardens to herb gardens, container gardens, formal and informal gardens and so on. The list seems to be endless but the good in all of this is that you can have a garden that is tailor-made just for you based on several factors that we will look into a little later.

Deciding on constructing a garden

Deciding on constructing a garden can be a very exciting hobby which presents many benefits but for the beginner who does not know where to start this can be a very challenging experience because there are some do and don’ts when it comes to construction your home garden.

Common garden mistakes

Just as there are laws that govern’s the universe there are laws that govern’s gardening in order to garden successfully. So we will be looking at these mistakes so they can be avoided and have the most amazing experience ever when it comes t gardening successfully.

Starting with a plan

It is always best to start with a plan, knowing what you want is the first step to gardening successfully. Know the amount of spacing you are working with, is this garden space in a sunny, partial shade or full shaded area.

Soil type

Know what soil type you are working with, different plants have different soil requirements, know the size of your plants so that you can give them proper spacing so when they reach maturity they will perform at their best.

Location

All plants need some sunlight in order to survive and perform at their best. Base on what was mention above ensure that whatever plants you choose can survive in that garden location. For example, if the garden location is in an area that gets lots of sunlight then you will choose plants that can survive under this conditions.

Plant Depth

Planting too deep, or to shallow can cause injury to plant life and in the case of planting seeds, know the proper planting depth because planting to deeply will cause seeds not to germinate. A rule of thumb is to install plants where only the entire root ball are covered with soil. The entire stem of the plant should be above ground.

Wrong grouping of plants

Install plants together that have the same water and lighting requirements. Too often the inexperienced gardener group plants together that have different water and sunlighting requirements. When this happens one will suffer at the expense of the other.

Overwatering or underwatering your plants

Watering plants are so important because plants need water in order to survive but because plants are so diverse they have different water requirements. Some plants are considered to be drought tolerant meaning they can survive on little water, for example, cactus is desert plants that need little watering. If you overwater your cactus plant it will die.

The roots will root and your plant will die, so different plants of this same nature need very little water.

The same is true for a plant that requires a good amount of water to survive such a peace lily. These plants are known as high maintenance plants. Giving this plant inadequate water will cause this plant to die but word of caution here even overwatering will kill this plant and plants that are of the same nature.

Over-fertilizing or lack of fertilizer

Fertilizers are not plant food according to popular belief but are plants nutrients. Plants manufacture their own food through the process known as photosynthesis. Fertilizer helps our plants to grow healthy by supplying nutrients,

it is the same when we take vitamins. Vitamins are not food but nutrients that help our body to become more healthy.

When applying fertilizers always read and follow LABLE because the label is LAW.

 Other Graden tips

Other tips that will ensure garden success is as followed.

Mulch- Mulches plays an important role such as adding nutrients to the soil, conserving water keeping weeds down and also helping to balance soil ph.

Organic soils- Adding soil amendments is very beneficial for your garden plants.

Pruning- When pruning garden plants prune correctly or plants can fall back and in some cases die.

Weed killers- Having some knowledge about weed killers and how to apply them for best results.

Garden pest- Indentifying and understandeing garden pest.

Pesticides- Having a knowledge of pesticides and how to use. Not when using pesticides always read and follow the LABEL because the label is LAW.

Final word

Planting your home garden can be a wonderful experience as you connect with nature on the great outdoors. Applying these steps will go a long way in helping you to have such a rewarding experience as you venture upon this hobby that has proven to be very beneficial.

Plants, nature’s choice

Plant’s are nature’s choice for us when it comes to healing naturally. In today’s world in which we live there are health-related issues that many people are facing and what is even more disturbing is many of the medicines that promise

to bring relief can cause further health issues because of side effects. I remembered many years ago I paid a visit to the doctor’s office because of some problems I was having with my health

after the doctor examine me, medicine was prescribed. I took the prescription to the pharmacy got the medicine and went home then a few days later I decided to do a google search to see the side effects and to my surprise, one of the side effects was causing blindness.

I was so surprised, here I was taking this medication hoping to recover from this illness I was facing only to discover that blindness was a side effect and so it is with many of the modern-day medicine.

Watching the many television ads is a clear example as these medication promise to cure but the side effects are even more alarming, it is like gambling with your health or your life and that is a HUGE GAMBLE.

Is it any wonder why the generations before us were so healthy and had a longer lifespan. Now I must agree that many of the contamination that we have to deal with was not an issue with them but the fact remains they lived longer and I believe in part that it was because of going natural.

Having options

I believe that we should always have options when it comes to our health. A good idea, in my opinion, is to ask your doctor what choices are available and if there are natural ways before we accept

those medications that have such serious side effects.

Healing naturally with plants

This section of Eden’s Graden is dedicated to bringing you some of the best natural healers that are made available to us. I live in the Bahamas and what is amazing is that

We have a rich history of the older generation that has passed on their knowledge to the younger generation about using natural medicine to cure illness.

These natural remedies the islanders know as bush medicine are really awesome and work wonders without side effects. Many of the health stores now sell some of these medications

in pills, liquid, powdered form, tea bags and so on.

Our greatest investment

Our health is one of our greatest investment and we should do all that we can to maintain it. We can not afford to take our health lightly so I hope this section

offers much help to you as you seek to heal naturally with plants because plants are our natural pharmacy that has been prescribed by nature to keep us in tip-top shape.

Final word

Apart from going natural, it is also good to follow the laws of good health which include eight hours of rest, proper diet, exercise drinking sufficient water, staying away as much as possible from stress

and just taking life easy enjoying and smelling the roses along life’s journey. With that said Eden’s Garden brings to you healing naturally with plants.

Kitchen scraps a gold mine

Don’t trash the gold, regrow it to save $$$$$$$$. This ought to be our mindset in this day and time especially with the cost of living that ever seems to be on the increase. Now is the time for us to become not only health conscious but also penny conscious because there is an old saying that goes”a dollar saved is a dollar earned.

How many of us over the years have thrown away that piece of veggie that could have been regrown instead of having to keep purchasing from the supermarket. Believe it or not, millions of dollars are being trashed every year simply by throwing away parts of vegetables that can be reused.

I have been guilty of this but the time has arrived to educate and empower ourselves on starting a home garden if only for this reason. My wife often goes to the supermarket but whenever I have the chance to go I often go to the produce section

where the veggies and herbs are and it is really amazing to see the high prices. But we can counter-attack by starting a home garden that offers so many benefits besides saving money, we can also benefit from our home garden by connecting with nature by giving nature a helping hand, getting that much-needed exercise, if our families are working with us then this is a great hobby to create a stronger bond with that love one, we can not only educate our selfs but our children about the importance of growing our own foods, teaching them about the varieties of veggies and so on

So as you can see, there are a lot of benefits of starting a home garden. To be able to feed both yourself and family is so awesome because in this way they along with you will be empowered on how to survive.

So how can we regrow vegetables from kitchen scraps?

Types of garden

Don’t have the garden space no worries because you can work with what you have and still have a home garden you can be proud of. Container gardensraised beds and growing indoor edible plants, are a great way for small garden spaces.

With that said let’s look at some kitchen scraps that can be regrown.

1. Gingers- Ginger has a good aroma, pleasant taste and is good for its many healing benefits. But you can always have a fresh harvest of ginger by simply planting a piece of ginger with the buds facing the upward position in potting soil. In a week or two, your ginger plant will begin sprout. You can repeat this process for an endless supply of ginger.

2. Potatoes- Potatoes are another veggie that can be grown from scraps. In a 15 gallon pot or large container of the same size fill with soil and plant potatoes make sure that the potato peelings have at least 2 – 3 eyes and cut each peel 2 inches

The eyes should be facing the upward position when planting. Several weeks from planting date your potatoes will begin to sprout.

3.  Lettuce- Lettuce is one of my favorites, this veggie is known as a hydrated food that can help to keep the body to hydrated. Growing this veggie is pretty simply just put some water in a bowl and add lettuce scraps.

Place bowl in a sunny location. 3-4 times a week wet the leaves with water. In a few days, you will see new growth along with roots. At this point transplant in the soil.

4. Celery- Growing celery from scraps is pretty easy, Cut the bottom of celery off and place this part in a bit of warm water, place the bowl in direct sunlight. In a week or so you will see new growth when this happens transplant in the soil until celery reaches maturity.

5. Cabbage- I love cabbages especially in soups and salads. This veggie is filled with vitamins and other benefits that can do our bodies a whole lot of good. With that said it only makes good sense to use the scraps and grow a fresh head of Cabbage.

simply just put some water in a bowl and add cabbage scraps.

Place bowl in a sunny location. 3-4 times a week wet the leaves with water. In a few days, you will see new growth along with roots. At this point transplant in the soil.

6. Onions- I love onions even though it makes me cry if you don’t believe that then just try peeling one and before you know it you will be all teary-eyed. Onions are used in so many dishes worldwide but this veggie is very easy to grow.

Remove the root of the onion leaving about 1/2 inch of onion. Cover with some good garden soil and place in a sunny location. Before you know it you will have fresh juicy onions.

7. Tomatoes- Tomatoes are fruits and not veggies even though the average person would say that it is a veggie. Growing tomatoes is as simple as 1 2 3. Just allow seeds to dry

and plant in good garden soil in a sunny location and in no time you will have a garden of fresh delicious tomatoes.

8. Garlic- Garlic is a favorite of mine, I love the aroma and the taste. Garlic has also been known to fight infections and many other health-related issues. But growing this herb can be so much fun.

Garlic grows in segments, these segments are known as cloves, just separate each clove. Make sure that roots are down when planting in the soil. A sunny location is best for this herb.

Once new shoots emerge, cut the shoots back this will cause garlic to produce new blubs and the good part is that you can repeat the process for a fresh harvest of garlic.

9. Basil- I just love the smell and taste of basil. This herb can really give those dishes that WOW. You can regrow basil by putting the stems with leaf nodes in a glass of water and placing them in a location that gets plenty sunlight. When roots grow to about 2 inches long transfer them in pots.

10. Rosemary- Rosemary is another favorite of mine that I have been cooking with for years. This herb will surely do the trick and have family and friends coming back for more

To regrow rosemary simply cut 2-3 inches from the top of the rosemary and place them in the water. When the new roots emerge, you can transfer them into a pot of soil.

11. Pumpkin Seeds- Growing pumpkins from seeds are really simple. I have seen where persons just took the seeds and thrown them out and believe it or not in a matter of weeks the seeds sprouted.

It is good to let seeds dry and when planting look for a sunny location and before you know it you will be eating pumpkin and rice, pumpkin pies or some other delicious dish made with pumpkins. Pumpkins are also packed with vitamins and have so many other benefits.

12. Turnips- Turnips are easily grown when it comes to regrowing, just take the tops of your turnip and place in a dish of water. When the tops produce that fresh green and roots begin to emerge it is time to remove from

the dish and place in the soil. Make sure that you plant them in a location that gets plenty of sunlight and in no time you will have a harvest of turnips from the garden to your kitchen table.

Final word

Starting a vegetable garden from kitchen scraps can be very rewarding as you save a few $$$$$$$$$ and enjoy the other benefits that come with this hobby so start a garden of your own today and reap the fruits of your labor.

Growing healthy children and keeping them strong

In today’s world, many parents are faced with the challenge of getting their kids to eat fruits. In my last article, we looked at how to get your children to eat vegetables and found out some really great ways to have our children asking for more.

But what about fruits, there are a lot of parents that are having issues with their children eating fruits. You would think that because fruits are sweet and children love sweets they would except eating fruits with open arms

but this is not the case. First of all, I believe that this is a physiological thing with children because if you offer them a candy bar, a donut, candy or some other sweet treat they would be all smiles. But by using reverse physiology we can have our children eating out of our hands or even begging us for more fruits.

The nature of fruits

There are so many varieties of fruits that it is just mind-blowing, different sizes, colors and so on but what I love about fruits is that fruits are natural healers that are filled with vitamins which

are the building blocks to keep up bodies in tip-top shape. So by getting our kids to eat fruits will be of great benefits.

For more on fruits and the benefits, they offer, refer to the health section of this website, I am sure that you will find some helpful tips that will help you.

I believe that more parents should be educated on the benefits of fruits and in this way will encourage them to put forth the effort to invest in their children’s health.

What I love about fruits is that they are not only filled with vitamins but can help to fight illness saving us as parents $$$$$$$ and having to take that trip or trips to the doctor’s office.

With that said let’s now look at encouraging your children to eat fruits.

Encouraging your children to eat fruits

What can we do as parents?

Many parents are puzzled or even frustrated on how to address this issue of getting their children to be a lover of fruits. Well look no further, here are some tips you can apply that have proven to give good results so let’s have a closer look at some of these solutions.

Here are some proven tips that can help you in your quest to help your kids to love fruits.

Here are some fruit salad recipes that you can try. Fruit salad recipes.

1. Make fruit salad. Making salads with fruits is a great way to encourage your children to eat fruits. The rainbow of colors will get their attention and spark interest.

2. Have them help you prepare salads. While preparing, make a game out of it, sing songs, laugh, smile and even taste a little at the same time because children follow by example.

3. As much as possible let your kids see you eating fruits and talk to them about how healthy they will become by making these fruits a part of their diet.

4. Promise if they eat their fruits you would do something special for them and whatever you choose to, make it so special they will be begging you to put fruits on their plates.

5. Buy children’s DVDs on fruits and other health-related issues and watch it with them.

6. Offer them a treat, now I don’t want to sound like I am contradicting myself but offer them a little unhealthy treat for eating their fruits. Just limit the amount of this kind of treat.

7. Don’t force them to eat their fruits.

9. This one may be a little tough but if you can make shapes out of fruits and have them to do the same also.

10. Give them a choice of what fruits they want. Let them feel like they are in control. Let them have their way with this.

11. Making fruit smoothies along with them is a great way to get them interested in fruits.

12. Take them grocery shopping with you and have them pick out the fruits.

13. Instead of ice cream or other sweet treats for dessert, why not give them fruit salad.

14. Cutting back on junk foods and having more fruits available is a good way to get your children to eat and love fruits.

Let those creative juices flow and mix it up. Create different fruits salads.

Don’t give up

And by all means, don’t give up keep trying different ways. Remember that our children are one of our greatest investment and we cannot afford to run the risk of having their health decline because of unhealthy eating.

Final word

I believe all that we need to maintain good health is found in the foods that we eat. These foods are, the pharmacy that provides us with all of that good natural stuff that will keep us happy and healthy so let’s do our best to be the BEST example to our kids

by encouraging them to eat their fruits that have proven to be so beneficial from generations to generations.

A professional cut that enhances the beauty of your garden

Maintaining your garden and landscapes requires that extra touch that causes heads to turn as you bring that WOW to your overall garden design. I have seen gardens that were well designed but because of poor maintenance practices, those gardens were far from looking beautiful.

Many garden designs have the potential of looking great but what is needed is first the vision of how you will maintain those gardens and then the proper tools that will help you to create what you want.

Funny story

I remembered a few years ago I was passing this resident and what I saw I could hardly believe. The occupants of that resident hire a gentleman to give their landscape a manicure.

The property had a hedge of Ficus Benjamin and what he was doing was using a cutlass to trim those Ficus. I did not stick around to see what the homeowners though but I am pretty sure it was not a pleasant experience for them.

 Do the job right the first time!

In order to give that professional look, we should at all times use the right tools. That story that was mention earlier is like a machinic working on your car and instead of bringing the right tools to fix your car

he brings a shovel, pruner, and other garden equipment to work on your vehicle. I am sure you would not let him come near your car. The right tools along with some know how will cause the job to be done the right way.

In this article, we will be looking at a few hedge trimmers from manual to gas-powered, battery operated and even corded to see which ones are best for you. These trimmers are some of top of the line that has received high marks from persons that have to use them.
