A beer trap is an effective way of of dealing with any slugs that invade your organic garden. Dig a hole the size of a glass jar, and bury the jar with the top at ground level. Fill the jar with beer to an inch below the jar’s top. The scent of the beer will bait the slugs into the jar and they will become trapped. Keep leaves you rake from your yard for use as organic compost you can mix in with your soil. When the leaves decompose, they turn into a nutrient rich organic compost, providing a healthy addition to your garden soil. This is a cheap and sustainable way to get compost. Don’t let the chores for your organic garden pile up. Every time you go outside, you should take care of a few things so that you do not have too much work to do when you have the time to go back to your garden. If you are outside with your dog, pluck a few weeds while your dog is taking care of his business. You need to make sure you are very efficient when working in your organic garden. Don’t waste your time by searching high and low for that packet of seeds or spade. Have all of tools you will need for the day before you head out your garden. When you are finished, put them away neatly for the next time. You can use a tool belt for this purpose, or choose pants that contain several large pockets.
