Hey, Erik here, and you’re reading my uncensored review of what were my experiences with one particular guide on growing broccoli both reliably and time efficiently.
Why am I writing this? Well, when I was thinking about growing broccoli in the first place, there weren’t many real reviews about specific guides around so I thought I’d write one quickly to help any of you who are in the same position I was.
But be warned, I’ll be going into both the good and the bad points, so if that’s something you might not want to hear, then you may as well leave now.
Guide key facts
Alright, first of all, the key issues being addressed by the concept I write about are:
- Set up a garden that produces more than a traditional vegetable garden
- Set up a garden that only requires 8 hours of effort per year
- Grow food that you can harvest every season
- Set up a garden that needs no digging
- Set up a garden that naturally repels pests
- Set up a garden that has almost no weeds
- Grow vegetables and fruit organically
- Grow food in any soil
- Collect your own seeds
- Grow your own established seedlings
- Grow more food than you need (to be able sell the excess)
- Grow tasty vegetables like tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, potatoes, celery, zucchini, pumpkin, cucumber and more
- Fertilize your garden for free using waste from the household
- Produce food in a most ecologically friendly way
- Create a garden that regenerates by itself
The concept’s name? Food4wealth – Click here to get to its website.
Growing broccoli got easier than expected
Now what’s to say about that? Well, first of all, everyone that expects wonders – as I did – will be disappointed. The guide did not grow broccoli on its own 🙂 Seriously, I would have wanted more information on where to get some stuff. What it does, however, is get a system of plain and simple instructions through to anyone I could think of. There is not just a book to read, there are 14 video tutorials on how to achieve each step. In addition there is a project plan and a checklist with remarks on which steps to follow, just in case we’re not carrying those videos with you all the time you’re in the garden.
What is it about? Food4wealth is said to be a concept of a low maintenance, minimal effort system of vegetable gardening. That concept consists of the proven hypothesis that nature handles itself pretty well without us interfering all the time, even though most gardening schools teach us to.
So if you’re a traditional gardener of some sort, then this whole method will probably go against everything you believe in and you could be offended by it. Being new to the field at the time, the information food4wealth provided were of great benefit for me. For example, I discovered the necessity of providing my plants with the right nutritional base and also that diversity is the mainstay of any food-producing venture. I learned when to plant broccoli, reconsidered my other choices of vegetables, got some general vegetable garden ideas, in short, I learned how to plant a garden.
First I thought that I had probably fallen to some sort of “get rich fast” version of gardening which could never work. However, I did not just get great results, I even instantly learned that traditional methods are outmoded, time-consuming, ecologically unsound and hopelessly impractical.
I was not biased in favor of other methods of gardening, and so I just tried the food4wealth concept and never bought any kind of vegetable since. I can even say that I taste the difference between my broccoli and the one I eat when we’re invited to friends – all while saving a lot of money each year, and even without sacrificing our garden planning, garden layout or other garden ideas we had. Our own veggie backyard garden, carrying organic vegetables in four seasons. And most importantly: I had finally grown my own broccoli.
If I had to put into one sentence:
Food4walth takes you by the hand and shows you step by step one of the easiest and most effective methods to profit from nature’s way of growing healthy food – a way to have ones very own broccoli.
