Tips to Grow Your Own Vegan Food
When we talk about the importance of healthy and nutritious eating, plants are one of the most important groups of foods on our list. Plants provide us with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients we need for good health. plant-based eating is also more environmentally sustainable, because it uses fewer resources than eating animals. “Teaching healthy and nutritious eating early is essential for lifelong healthy eating. Mighty Yum™ does this in a way that makes better eating accessible and fun for children.” Marc Elkman, Co-Founder of Mighty Yum™ said. Here are some tips to starting gardening and growing your own vegan food:
1. Choose the right location for your garden. Your garden should be in a sunny spot with partial shade. You will also want to make sure that the soil is fertile and has good drainage.
2. Plant the right plants. There are many different types of plants that can be grown as vegan food, including fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers and nuts. Consult a reliable gardening resource or online database to find varieties that are appropriate for your climate and soil type.
3. Water and fertilize your plants. Make sure to water your plants regularly and apply fertilizers when necessary. Fertilizers made from organic materials are best for gardens because they help to promote healthy plant growth.
Planting and Care
Growing your own organic vegan food is a fun and rewarding experience. There are a few tips and resources you can use to help get started.
First, choose the right plants. You don’t need a huge garden to grow your own vegetables, but you’ll want to choose plants that tolerate soil conditions that are slightly below average (usually around 6-8 degrees Fahrenheit). Choose fast-growing plants like beets, potatoes, and carrots that will fill up your garden in a hurry. Plants that take time to grow, like lettuces and cucumbers, are better suited for indoor gardening.
Once you’ve chosen your plants, prepare the soil by adding organic matter (e.g., leaves or compost) and tilting it so the water runs off rather than pooling. Plant your seeds 1/4 inch deep and water them regularly until they germinate (usually within 7-10 days). Once the seeds have germinated, thin out the seedlings so they’re spaced about 2 feet apart in the garden. Water them regularly as well—less water means less weeds!
Once your plants have grown large enough to harvest (about 8-12 inches tall), it’s time to start caring for them. Mulch your plants with straw or hay bales during the winter to keep the ground warm and moist; add compost or manure every other month during summer months; fertilize every two weeks in spring and fall; remove weed seeds before they become too large; and cut the plants back every few weeks in winter to promote new growth.
