The Secret to Growing a Successful Winter Garden - Organic Style

Real Estate Agent with LUVA Real Estate RS 62947

As I was tending to my Garden this morning - I thought - why not share my secret to success.

This is going to sound so easy, you're going to be scratching your head - saying - Why Didn't I Think of That?  I found this out -  back in 1984 and it has been working flawlessly ever since. Here - take a look -west hawaii condos

You start with the usual,

I like mine in containers, so I  load them up with some rich Organic soil, mix in a little Organic Chicken Manure. Hooked up those drip feeder hoses, set the timer to go off at 6:00am for 20 minutes

Kind of like the Infomercial for that cooker - I set it, and forget it !

A few weeks later - presto - nice fresh Organic Salad

There is nothing better than making my Son his lunch, and walking out to the garden, and peeling off a fresh, living,  lettuce leaf,  for that sandwich - its awesome! No chemicals, no steroids, (well who knows whats in the meat I put on it) but at least I feel like I am doing my part!

Oh - lets not forget we haved to keep Mom happy - not that she isnt stoked about feeding our son Organic Lettuce - but we need to make her feel a little special

Roses for that special woman in our lives.

And we have to keep Dad  happy to.

OK - I've been saving the secret for last

Besides all the love, the time, the energy,  I put into this container garden

The Real Secret is ???

I moved to Hawaii - its amazing how this stuff grows in middle of January, in these blistering 80 degree days. I mean - 12 hours a day of amazing sunshine, and when it does rain, they just call it Liquid Sunshine!

A successful winter garden in Hawaii. That's pretty much cheating. How about a successful winter garden in Chicago?

I love the lettuce.  Luckily here in OC we have a year round growing season and mostly you can just put something in the ground and it grows with minimal assistance.
