Growing Natural Food

This post brought to you by Whitney Farms. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am not really a gardener, but this year I am using a corner from my mother-in-law’s backyard. Here is a though that has bugged me for a while: the reason I (and most of the people I know) decide on gardening is because I want once again believed in the food I eat. I want to smell the tomato or a cucumber and I want my food to be clean. However, any time I think about plant food, I wonder, how come not all of it is natural, clean, and organic? I understand that certain chemicals in plant food ensure that produce doesn’t get attacked by bugs, but if the bug won’t eat it, why should I?

I think it sounds logical that the plant food should satisfy all this qualities (natural, no artificial additive, easy to apply), before it gets close to my food. And I if I am making a clean food commitment by working hard in my garden, I won’t accept anything less than that from my plant food. I am looking forward to a day we pick tomatoes from the backyard – I know they will be delicious.

  1. I love my garden! It feels so good to know that you’ve grown the food your eating, and that it’s not coming from an industrial factory farm!

  2. I don’t garden, but my husband does and it is sooo rewarding and saves us $$$

  3. I would LOVE to have my own garden but since I live on the side of a mountain, it doesn’t work too well! Guess I’ll have to stick with my grandpa’s garden! I’m going to tell him about this though!

  4. I always joke that I have two black thumbs because I can’t grown anything to save my life. But the more I think about it, the more I consider starting a small herb garden on the deck–maybe I’ll be better at outdoor gardening than indoor. I may give this plant food a shot and see if it helps. And your point on, “if the bug won’t eat it, why should I” is a very through-provoking one!

  5. I always plant herbs in the spring because it’s so much cheaper to buy a few plants than buying herbs at the grocery store. I love that Whitney is dedicated to providing organic solutions to consumers.

  6. Growing up my mom kept a garden and I have to say it was a childhood favorite to go out and pick some of the tomatoes or green beans directly off the vine. I’m not sure if she ever used products like this, but I’m tempted to tell her about it. – Katy

  7. Very cool, I’d love to have my own garden like we did when I was a kid but I’m in an apartment right now so it’s not possible.

  10. I don’t garden (yet) but if I did your approach with Whitney Farms plant food is the one that I would most likely take. Thanks for the infor!
