Begin Living A Greener Life With An Organic Garden

For people who are old enough to remember, leading a green life used to be the norm. Almost everyone would grow their own gardens or purchase their produce from the store; of course, this was before the huge fast food rage. Many years ago, mostly everyone maintained at least an average size garden, and a lot of small communities also had small farmers markets. There wasn’t the need to scrutinize labels to see what the product contained. Gardening used to be a normal practice in everyone’s lives; this is how parents fed their kids and keep the extra foods for wintertime. People did not believe in squandering food many, many years ago so any food not consumed was put back to the garden and integrated with the soil.

People did not apply chemical substances, and they fertilized their gardens in a natural manner. A normal garden produced enough delicious vegetables to feed every member of the family, and some of the neighbours. That was a time when people really knew their neighbors, and sharing food with each other was something that people did. I am certain you have heard of pesticides and chemical based fertilizers; well, many, many years ago, ages ago, not too long ago, some time ago people had never even heard of these terms. While these pesticides and chemicals were thought to assist in growing food, what they really did was begin harming the environment.

We will likely never realize how many of the health issues of today are set off by the chemicals in the ground and the absence of nutrients in our foods. No one ever gives any thought to the health conditions caused by these chemicals until they afflict someone in their family. As poor health is becoming typical for most of the population, more individuals are becoming worried about what they put into their bodies. Veggies have a lot more vitamins and nutrients in them when they are grown in an organic manner.

Living green is something that many people are now considering, and maybe it is time for you to think about it also. If you simply look at the health problems in the world these days, you may realize that it is time for a change. Conventional medicine has stopped working so it could be time to try alternative health care. In the issue of food, it is time to make the switch organic. Green living with organic gardening can be a means to cure ourselves, and help mend the Earth.

If a lot more people began their own organic garden, the amount of toxic substances being dumped in to the ground each year would be lowered greatly. Manure and other eco friendly plant foods must be utilized as opposed to toxic substances. The dead leaves, grass trimmings and kitchen leftovers will keep the soil full of necessary nutrients. By not using chemical fertilizers, you can be secure in the fact that you are not causing harm to wildlife or the health of your family. As well, the food produced will be healthy for consumption. Also, by having your own organic garden, you will be helping to reduce the detrimental effects on the earth associated with chemical substances.

You should keep your distance from the affected area if you choose to use chemical pesticides. Now if breathing in these poisonous fumes are dangerous to your health, what about the chemical substances which are contained in the food that you eat? If you choose not to make use of these insidious chemical pesticides, you can work in the garden whenever you want without having to avoid the area for any certain amounts of time. Numerous organic gardeners have their gardens close to their dwellings, which is one important reason not to use chemicals. By having your own organic garden, you can be sure you’re consuming nutritious foods and saving the environment at the same time.

Believe Me The Honey Bee Crisis is Bad!

Believe Me The Honey Bee Crisis is Bad!

“My Oh My” this is getting serious. What is happening to our honey bees? We have been starting to see the actual effects of the honey bee decline after placing our last order for bulk beeswax. As a manufacturer of natural beeswax lip balms and candles we have always been getting our beeswax here in our home state of Florida and last month was the first time we had to order from outside the sunshine state. Is this due to the rapid decline in honey bees or are we just worrying too much? Well facts are facts and we have some serious problems with the honey bee decline. Why are the bee colonies down as much as 60% we ask? Well it does seem that bees and humans may have something in common. Nutrition is as vital to us as it may be to the honey bees and it is possible that the bees are undernourished which may be the cause of the problem. Many states are seeing less dense bee hives and this may be contributed to the lack of nutrition the bees are getting.

Another possible cause of the honey bee crisis may be the pesticides that are being used. Many hives die as a result of “pesticide poisoning”. There are literally billions of honey bees dying prematurely and the source must be found before this world suffers severely. The honey bee only has a six week life cycle in the summer, three weeks inside the hive and three weeks outside, but many are not even making it to the fourth week.

So yet another possible source of this dilemma is the huge rise in cell phone stations and also cell phone use. Some are claiming the huge growth of clogged air waves with cellular waves may be disturbing the bees and causing the early deaths. Stephen C. Sharp who has been studying this problem for many weeks while not a scientist gives no personal merit to this cause. He states “Cellular phones have been around for long enough to see a potential problem with the bees. This problem came like a train wreck. I think there would have been many initial signs if the cellular wavebands were the source of the bee problem.”.

Other topics that have been thrown around as to the potential source of the bee crisis has been a virus or possibly mites that have worked their way into the bee colonies. Whatever the cause it must be isolated and controlled. Bottom line is if the bees all die maybe we will too! Bees are the only source to carry pollen of various fruits and nuts. Many plants do not reap the benefits of wind travel for pollination therefore if the bees vanish so does much of our food supply. We would begin to see a decline in new plants, brush, flowers, crops, and more. The honey bee gets food such as nectar and pollen from flowers and in turn pollinates the flower which allows the plant to reproduce. No bees, no reproduction!
