How to plant sesame seeds in a garden bed?
Step 1: Choose suitable seeds and garden beds
Firstly, we need to choose suitable sesame seeds. You can find various varieties of sesame seeds in seed shops or horticultural centers, and you can choose according to your preferences. Next, prepare a sunny and well drained garden bed to ensure that the soil is rich in organic matter.
Step 2: Prepare the soil
Level the soil on the garden bed and add an appropriate amount of decomposed compost or organic fertilizer. By scarifying the soil, it can improve its breathability and water retention capacity, providing a good environment for the growth of sesame vegetables.
Step 3: Sowing and watering
Spread the sesame seeds evenly on the soil surface and gently press the seeds with your hand to make them in closer contact with the soil. Then use a watering can or a thinner faucet to spray water finely to keep the soil moist. Be careful not to directly impact the seed with excessive water pressure to avoid displacement.
Step 4: Daily Care
Keeping the soil moist is the key to planting sesame vegetables. Water every morning or evening, avoiding direct sunlight to avoid rapid evaporation of heat. At the same time, regularly weed to prevent weeds from affecting the growth of sesame vegetables.
Step 5: Pay attention to pest control
Sesame vegetables are prone to infestation by some pests and diseases, such as aphids and powdery mildew. Organic pesticides or biological control methods can be used for prevention and control, avoiding the use of chemical pesticides that are harmful to human health.
Finally, be patient and wait for about 2-3 weeks before the sesame seeds can start harvesting! When the leaves become tender and green, they can be gently cut off. Fresh sesame vegetables can be used to make salads, stir fry, or eat raw, very delicious and healthy! Remember to clean and store in a timely manner after harvesting, to maintain freshness and nutrition.
To sum up, planting sesame seeds requires selecting suitable seeds and garden beds, preparing soil, paying attention to the techniques of sowing and watering, and carrying out daily care and pest control.
