Getting started with organic gardening

Tomorrow, I’ll be starting a series on beginning organic gardening and would love your thoughts and experiences!

In Florida, gardening is easier said than done, but we’re slowly getting the hang of it. My goal is healthy production and if I have to occassionally use non-organic methods to get there, so be it. The only poison I’ve used thus far is Sevin which I figure has been around long enough that if it were THAT bad it would already be off the market. I use it sparingly to stave off pickleworms.
