Organic Gardening – Resources

Q: I have been all over the Internet and cannot find a good resource about organic gardening in Georgia and what to plant when. We want to start an organic vegetable garden now. What can we plant in the summer and the other seasons as well? Can you give me an idea of good books or Web sites for help?

A: I searched throughout my house for the TV remote control last week. I thought I had looked everywhere…until I found it where I had hidden it behind the television. Finding organic gardening resources on the Web was a piece of cake compared to that hunt.

The first place to visit is the University of Georgia Extension Service horticulture publications.

There you’ll find

Growing Vegetables Organically

Georgia Gardening

Vegetable Planting Calendar

Small Garden Plan

Harvesting Your Garden from Missouri gives good information

Gardening in Containers gives good tips on using containers to grow plants

Of course, the local Georgia Organics organization (770-621-4642) always gives good advice and has fine resources.
