How To Grow A Garden That Feeds You

As supermarket prices continue to rise, more people than ever before are looking for ways to reduce their weekly shopping bill. The need to remain healthy is also a growing concern, which is why so many people are looking at ways to start growing their own produce. This is an option that is increasingly viable, and no matter how much space you have, chances are that you could be benefiting from organically grown food without the high costs of the local supermarket. Knowing what to plant and how is the key to having better control over what you put into your body, and your wallet could be considerably heavier as a result.

Look at your diet

Some families eat a lot more vegetable than others. Work out how much you need to feed your household and pick the right ones. There’s little point in spending time and energy on growing french beans if nobody in your family likes them. If you’re serious about growing your own food, then make sure that you are growing the right amounts of the right type.

Know your quantities

There are two key factors to consider when you’re trying to work out how many seeds to plant:

  • The food you like: Only plant the food types that you know you and your family will enjoy. Don’t be scared to try new ideas well. More exotic seeds are available if you want to experiment with new produce, and you can check with a helpful access to seeds index 2019 to make sure that your seed suppliers are sustainable and of good quality.
  • Climate awareness: If you live somewhere with a mild climate then chances are that you can produce much of your needs all year round. If you suffer from colder winters, then you may need a more dedicated space, or simply accept the fact that most of your harvest will have to be done through the summer months.

Replant consistently

Once you have harvested a crop, then it’s time to replant. Don’t stick to the same produce every time. Remove all of the previous harvests and sift through the soil to remove as many traces of it as possible. Think strategically, and consider the benefits of succession planting to get the most from your yield. Think too about the time of year. Some crops will grow better with cooler temperatures, so check out the leafy greens and root vegetables that will make healthy contributions to your menu.

Harvest Preservation

There’s little point in growing more than you need and having to throw away the bulk of your harvest through non-use. Instead, look for smart ways to preserve your produce yield. You can choose from:

  • Freezing: By far the simplest option, this requires nothing in the way of specialist equipment.
  • Canning: This is a method that has been used for generations but you will have to learn how to do it correctly.
  • Drying: This simple method for food preservation is ideal for those with limited storage space. Unlike freezing, dried out foods are not reliant on technology to keep fresh.

The bigger your available growing space, the easier it is to start growing enough food to avoid the supermarket altogether. Even for those with limited space, modern growing technologies make it easier than ever before to grow what you need. If you want to take control over your food and your budget, growing your own might be the key to a better life.

How to Choose Jewelry for Your Prom Dress

When it comes to prom prep, finding the right dress is usually the biggest challenge. So, if you have your perfect prom dresses in the bags, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Next step is how to accessorize. You need to think about shoes, handbag, hair, and of course jewelry.

Choose jewelry that contrasts your dress

If you have chosen a simple matte looking dress, then pairing it with sparkly jewelry will be a good choice. If you have chosen a dress that already sparkles and shines, it’s better to choose jewelry of the same sheen – so put gold with gold, silver with silver, and match the stones so they have the same color tones. This will complement the dress, and not make it look too busy.

Match your earrings to your hairstyle

The earrings you choose should be based on how you plan on having your hair, and what the top part of your dress looks like. If your dress has a lot of detailing such as embroidery around your chest and neck, then smaller more understated earrings would look nice. However, a typical strapless dress with simple detailing on the top can be paired with more loud and sparkling earrings.

You want your jewelry to compliment your hairstyle, not compete with it. Therefore, if you’re planning on a simple and sleek hair up, then opt for some sparkle and shine big earrings, whereas if you plan to have a detailed dramatic updo, then don’t take the shine of this with glitz and glam earrings, opt for a simpler pair to give you a balanced overall look.

2 types of ‘in’ Prom necklaces

There are two kinds of necklaces which are always popular with prom dresses. The first is maxi collars with rhinestones and sparkle. The second is a more delicate choker with pearls and other gems. If your prom dress has a deep neckline, go with a long necklace, and if your dress has a higher or straight neckline, opt for a short necklace. This will bring your outfit more balance and look great. Jessica, JJ’s House designer, says ‘Remember to not overdo it, if your prom dress has lots going on around the top half, keep your necklace sheek and simple, whereas if your dress is always simple, or strapless, then you can glam it up with a more glittery statement necklace.’

Dress Color Matters

Your dress color will also influence the jewelry that you choose. The go to jewelry colors for almost every color prom dress would be pearl or metal (gold or silver) and sparky, rhinestone or diamond for example. We think cool colors for example greens, blues and purples look fab with silver-based jewelry, and warmer colors such as reds, yellows and pinks, suit more gold tone jewelry. Neutral colors such as white prom dresses or black prom dresses we would match with either the classic silver or gold, or you can add colorful jewelry too, both work. It depends on you and your personal preferences, don’t be afraid to use trial and error in the mirror too.
