    This is a very good video, I’m just trying to learn because I’m new to
    gardening. Could you get the same results from your garden if you just used
    the woodchips?

    Thank you

    Little to broad for me. It is going to kill the good and bad bugs. PM can
    be controlled but doing a application of sulfur now and then. BE Takes
    care of the caterpillars. Beer traps take care of slugs. All are organic
    and target the specific pest you are after and not all insects.

    by soil do you mean clay ?! ..cause I’ve been struggling with my clay soil,
    mine is a brownish clay soil even harder than the red clay, I tried mixing
    in gravel and sand from the sea, but my onions turned out to have salty
    taste, does salt washes deep down with regular watering on the long run ?!

  5. Sirena Delmar

    wonder if we can use pure castile liquid soap instead of the one you’re
    using.

    I live on a hill actually a mountain. So I have no soil on my land its just
    wrong. I dig 6 inches and I hit big boulders. That sucks 🙂 it’s good for
    my muscles but I have to use raised beds in my yard and buy soil here
    locally.

    Oh my goodness, Young ‘un! Has Spring come to Wales already?! I’m jealous,
    we’re still mired in snow and dirty ice. I can’t wait to get out there! I
    went on safari yesterday and found 10 praying mantis nests! No need for any
    pest control again this year, thank goodness! By the way, have you ever
    planted dogwood from seed? Any help with that would be great. 🙂 – Old

    Hey Brandon, we don’t have Azomite in my area. Do you buy yours locally,
    and if so where. I will be in the DFW area soon. Thanks!

    The tomato Tomate or Jitomate
    commonly known as a tomato plant The tomato is consumed in diverse ways,
    including raw, as an ingredient in many dishes, sauces, salads, and drinks.

    In general, I don’t like peat moss, but have used it some in the past. It
    is too expensive, nutrient deficient, lifeless, antimicrobial, not
    sustainable, & has to be shipped across the country for most gardeners.
    Peat moss is anti-microbial. Microbes don’t grow well in it. That’s just
    the opposite of what we want. Peat moss is good for storing bulbs, tubers,
    & other things that you don’t want to rot. Suggestion: research on why NOT
    to use it, there are better alternatives like compost or coir.

  21. 2JobsStillPoorUSA

    What about Diatomaceous earth. 

  22. Stephen Legaree

    Great how to my friend ! You said the seeds were from your garden right ?
    Do you get a lot of volunteer parsley in your garden? 

  23. Momma Dirt

    Great information Brandon. Thank you for mentioning that pine and peat moss
    can be problematic. When it comes to evergreen products, most people do not
    realize they contain natural paraffin which can make their soil hydrophobic
    (not absorb water). Not to mention that they can also effect ph. Evergreen
    products should only be used after they are very well composted and
    preferably mixed with other types of compost.

  24. LadyDistelfink

    The best strategy to deal with pests long term is to attract beneficials.
    Plant yarrow, basket of gold, peppermint etc. to attract hoverflies,
    parasitoid wasps and ladybugs – they’ll take care of those aphids and other
    bugs. Attract birds to your garden and they’ll keep the caterpillars at
    bay. Beneficials never eliminate pests completely, but they definitely
    control them. Plus all the flowers look nice and attract pollinators!

    Hi Huw, please show use growing various Strawberry plants that will fruit
    through out the growing season here in the UK. Early, mid and late season
    varieties. Something I’d like to try this year, and will follow your
    planting and harvesting instructions and videos. It would be so nice to
    harvest a fresh crop of strawberries for the whole of the summer and autumn
    months. Thank you, Gary

    I just started a raised bed this year. I had no idea of what I was
    doing, but I did watch , seems like 2,000 videos. Everything was going
    great, but the zucchini and cantaloupe are growing like wild , but no
    fruit. I have been spraying with Fish Fertilizer ( everything seems to love
    it, and yes it stinks ) , also, spraying flowers with Epsom salt mixture (
    Magnesium, and they all seem to love that too.) I tried Neem oil mix spray,
    but apparently I’m really allergic to it. I thought it was mosquitos, but
    my arms broke out in hive like itchy rashes. I had to take a Benadryl, so I
    can’t use that. My daughter noticed what looks like ants in the middle of
    the flowers of the cantaloupe. I was so upset , I sprinkled sevin dust on
    it. Did I just poison/ ruin my garden ????

  35. F Rivera

    Please let us know why you do not use Peat Moss. So many sites tell you to
    add it to improve the soil. What are your thoughts on this?

  36. leifcatt

    I had to smile when I found out I was doing something right. I have been
    using Neem oil and Dr. Bronner’s soap for years. My Grandpa introduced me
    to Dr. Bronner’s in the early 70’s. It was his favorite soap because it was
    " a natural way to clean everything except sin." Just had to share. :-)

  37. PhantomAct

    I am having the worst of time trying to grow dill. I usually cover the
    seeds with soil and then water. No result so far. Looking at your clip, I’m
    wondering if i should just scatter them on the roughed up soil instead.

  38. CraftsAndMore315

    John, I just finished watching this video and I’m going to say something
    personal now that’s not gardening related. You are about my age. In 1995
    when you became ill you were in your mid-20s, me too back then, so we are
    about the same age now. You can still have children John. You just need to
    find a woman young enough who is still in her childbearing years. There is
    always foster children and adoption also. There are many children out there
    who don’t have homes and need a loving parent. You could actually be a
    mentor if you wanted to, like at the Boys and Girls Club or something like
    that, and teach a whole new generation about gardening maybe one day a
    week. What a difference that would make in the lives of these children. You
    don’t have to have your own children right now in order to make a
    difference in a child’s life, you know? When you began "crying" in this
    video toward the end, I wasn’t sure if at first you were playing around,
    because I know you have a nice sense of humor, but it seemed like you were
    serious actually, and you know what, your children will be happy and proud
    of you. They already are. They are present with you in mind and spirit,
    they just haven’t been physically brought into the world yet, but they are
    proud of you, we all are John. It’s going to be okay (big smile). You say
    you need to relax more about your dating situation the way you are relaxed
    in the garden, otherwise you will end up single because you are "waiting
    for the right girl" but be a possibility thinker in that area of your life
    also. Remember you told us in this video that if we wait to plant a garden
    until we know everything about gardening, we will never do it. Well, maybe
    you want to take a chance on a woman as well, and if it doesn’t work out
    then you just learn from it and do better the next time. Life and love and
    relationships are like gardens in that respect. They need to be watered
    with love, tended to and cared for like the soil, and warmed with the
    sunshine of affection, and those are all gardening traits that you are very
    good at doing with your plants, I know those same skills will transfer over
    to a woman and relationship, and when you find her, you will have a
    beautiful garden of love to share with her, with lots of little plants,
    little Johns, flourishing in the family garden as well. I believe in you
    John even though I have never met you except for in these videos, and I
    know everything will work out for you. Take a chance on love and you may
    get your garden of children after all. In the meantime, just love everyone
    who crosses your path in life until that time comes when you have your own
    family, because in truth, we are all "family" sort of on this earth, and we
    all need a little gardening tender love and care in all of our lives. Sorry
    if I got too personal in this email. I meant well. Thanks for sharing John
    and for everything you do for all of us viewers, and thanks for letting me
    share, too. God bless, and hope you have a great day. 🙂 Christine.

    Really, maybe it’s available here, since a lot of cotton is grown in Texas.

  44. mucnagow2

    I learn so much from your videos! This one was filled with information.
    Thank you!

    I am very blessed to have an abundance of ladybugs in my area and believe
    me, I am grateful.

    An all natural pesticide that generations of my family has used is tobacco.
    Whether you grow your own and dry it or go to the tobacco store and get it
    already bagged doesn’t matter. It works the same.

    Soak dried tobacco in water. I use 5 gallon buckets. The longer you soak
    it, the stronger the water. Spray it on the plants.

    This has no effect on any kind of mold or fungus. It is particularly good
    at stopping leaf cutters.

    It has no effect on the taste of fruits and vegetables but I do not spray
    when the plants are in bloom.

    

  45. Anthony dunne

    Could you do some more exoctic seed planting videos, like Sequiadendron
    seeds or maybe Paulownia tomentosa seeds, and show us your progess with
    them? they are very cheap to buy online, i think maybe 1 pound for a good
    few seeds. i know they are not vegtables and maybe your concentrating on
    that aspect, but i think it would be a fun video series to try out.
    thanks!!

    As you start converting your yard, I have found that old sod that is
    removed to make way for vegetables can be piled up (upside down) into
    berms, to add shape and character to your back yard "farm". In a couple of
    years, the sod will break down into rich loamy soil, perfect for growing
    strawberries, blueberries, rhubarb, etc, for a beautiful and productive
    border. I have a full fledged urban garden near Denver, Colorado, my
    project "journal" is at http://www.denverurbangrazing.com. I know so many people
    that are trying to be more self sufficient! It is a wonderful thing.

    Most everything you’re growing is low in nutritional value and and just
    about worthless to sell. Who grows their own popcorn? And onions, I can get
    a 50lb bag for $10. Hot sauce at every meal? That monotonous, why even grow
    herbs when you kill their flavor with hot sauce?

    I’m just saying.

    

  95. CannaHeaven

    Pressure spraying with water helps, but the best solution is pressure spray
    them with water and a drop of natural dishwashing soap. The soap will wash
    away a protective layer on the pests skin/armor and makes them deadly
    vulnerable to the elements. A little sunshine and wind will do the rest.

  98. Annie65H

    I love your raised beds and how you arranged them. I especially love the
    round/tall metal beds – that look like you don’t have to stoop to garden!
    LOL! It is mind blowing to think that it is your Winter – but you have
    things coming up & starting to grow!! How different than when I was
    growing up in West Virginia & here in Virginia. I used to be in corduroys
    going to school and the floor furnace usually turned on by the early Fall.
    Isn’t it great to not have to buy new plants – & just let nature do her
    cycle! I was trying to think why my Dad (was an avid gardener) didn’t do
    more of that. He would save some seeds – like from heirloom tomatoes. But
    I think he didn’t let most go to seed because of the short season that we
    would have really – and limited space. He would clear & tiller the garden
    every Fall and put in a cover crop to enrich it – like rye. He didn’t
    rotate crops – but that was how he kept the soil from becoming too worn out
    from the same plantings Summer after Summer. And I especially liked your
    garden helper – there at the end! LOL! But I had heard that at one time
    those Cane Toads were really a problem – are they still? Hope not! Thanks
    again for another great video! We live in a townhouse now – with a small
    yard – but hope to move to the country in Maryland some day if possible –
    so I love collecting ideas!!

    Your videos are insightful, and highly entertaining. You remind me very

    Call Fidelity, Vanguard and State Street and tell them you’ll never buy
    stock because we know about Monsanto’s plan to replace nature and not just
    seeds. They’ve released Genetically Modified (GM) mosquitoes in 3
    countries, GM salmon, pigs, plants, growth hormone injected in the cows–
    everything.

    No wonder Monsanto is the MOST HATED corporation on earth. But what you
    don’t know is about the technology to reverse the damage you’ve done AFTER
    we get rid of all you rotten, evil, incarnated Schutzstaffels.

    Keeping bees is not for everyone, but there is an easy alternative. Build a
    bee hotel for solitary bees. Solitary bees are in big need of everyones
    help, because just like honeybees pesticides have reduced their numbers to
    pittance. There are tons of species and they can help your garden just as
    good as honeybees. Building the hotel is easy, all you need is a drill with
    differently sized drill bits and scrapwood. You can easily find it in big
    parks or in a forrest, just lying around. I have mine hanging for about a
    month now and since 2 days I see constant activity. The bees have laid
    their eggs and are busy pollinating my plants. The best thing? I dont need
    to do anything else for the bees, they just live there and take care of
    themselves.
    Google insect hotel or bee hotel for inspiration and help the bees out! One
    example: http://www.inspirationgreen.com/insect-habitats.html (but it can
    also be a bird-house sized if you lack room or materials).
    Here;s my insect hotel:

    planner than it would to get out and do the veg plot…..

    Please tell me where I can find purple tree collards seeds. I live in
    Hawaii, so I can’t buy plants from the Mainland, only seeds. Also, if you
    could connect me with the katook (we always called it saropa) grower, so I
    can grow it again.

    John, I just sifted my first batch of compost using the plans from you
    sifting video. It worked great. I make my compost using your method with
    the compressed pine horse bedding. It also has Azomite in it, and I add the
    ash from natural lump charcoal which always has small pieces of charcoal
    (biochar like) in it. It was some good looking stuff. I mixed it with some
    soil that I dug out, and sifted, from where a stump had been ground down
    and the wood chips filling the hole had broken down into some dark rich
    hummus. When I got done mixing I had a whole big trash can full of awesome
    soil! I immediately thought, "You can’t buy soil this good." Thanks for all
    your teachings and inspiration John! My garden is doing great, and you
    played a big part in that!

  127. chainsawmajini

    How about the enzymes in the horse manure ? I thought that’s what
    most,people use it for .

    I can get compost from my local earth center for $1 a 5 gallon bucket,
    which is about .5 cubic feet. I set up my own composter out of a trashcan,
    super easy. Also have plans to make up a homemade tumbling one next week.
    It is quite easy to make and cheaper than buying compost or a commercial
    composter. Recommend everyone try it if they have the space.

    Ah, did you notice the absence of insects when you had basil? Also you
    might want to puree the strawberries before you freeze them, as freezing
    makes a lot of fruits and veggies mushy and soggy, or rubbery.

  171. Liowen

    I would go through the settings and see if there is image stabilization
    setting that can be turned on, I know on my Coolpix S6600 point and shot
    camera has it and you can see video of that on my channel (Video of the
    windmills around by where your folks live I think). One thing to look for
    is a product by Rycote called windjammers, they help filter some of the
    wind noise picked up by the microphone. I have some I got on Ebay for $12
    and will be doing a review of them soon.

  172. WheepingWillow2

    IS THERE any ONE product that puts all that stuff in the soil which u
    mention at the beginning of this vid? The Rockefella and Bush families got
    together back in 1850’s or 60’s creating FERTILIZER which depleted our soil
    of ORGANIC SULFUR WHEREBY we don’t get it from our FOOD, which by 1950’s
    gooberment forced commercial farmers to put it on their fields, so by
    1970’s diseases like diabetes, heart disease, ADD, ADHD, autoimmune
    diseases, became prevalent. ORGANIC SULFUR PROJECT, provides 4 of the most
    critical amino acids IT’S A FOOD, not a supplement, IT REBUILDS THE CELLS

    most to seed themselves and see what happens. Great info, thanks for
    sharing:)………Ann

  177. Carol Lawler

    Excuse me but what country are you in John? I myself am i Australia, and i
    am in an area that has the poorest soil ever. For 7 years since i moved
    here i have been struggling to improve small patches, and just got my lawn
    growing from constant mulching.I have tried everything to get the veg
    garden going, and finally got a few measly veggies growing, It hardly rains
    here,and the town water is highly Alkaline and mineralised it kills after
    2 weeks, so I have to add a bit of precious rain tank water once a week to
    defuse the minerals. And on top of that the intense heat in summer and the
    intense cold in winter kills everything else that survived the water, I am
    going to try to make tower veggies growing a go, and see what happens, at
    my age anything easier than what i have would benefit me. any suggestions
    for this is appreciated.

  182. Patricia Valdez

    That’s how much it was at Big Lots here in TX. I started composting and I
    was thrilled it finally worked. I tried in tires but no good. I ended up
    doing in open bins and it worked great. I did stir it and I think that was
    what did the trick. In tires you can’t reach the bottom to turn over the
    compost. Learned this eventually.

  183. Kevin Jones

    We have miniature horses and I know what they’re eating and we rarely worm
    them, so I know when not to collect manure out of the paddocks. Combined
    with the pelletized stall bedding, and green sand, it heats up quickly and
    composts down pretty nicely. I may have a source for Azomite next year to
    add to it. Sweetest watermelons I’ve ever grown this year were fed with
    composted horse manure tea.

  184. Pedro Teixeira

    🙂 best of luck for your experiment 🙂 nice touch in the end :)

  185. Jeff Heriot

    Thanks, I’m due to plant more basil next spring, I generally grow enough
    over a spring & early summer period to make enough pesto to last us 3
    years. Last batch is nearly all gone:):) Thanks for the strawberry tip. I’m
    only getting the odd one at this stage so I cut them up to freeze for my
    next batch of strawberry jam. I’ll be able to do what you said with frozen
    ones. I’ll get going, I’ll ttyl, bye:)

  186. MollyDolly

    Your garden is looking good. I am curious why no root veggies like carrots
    or potatoes?

    People say grow the expensive stuff buy the cheap stuff… here we can get
    potatoes for $1 – $2 for 10# pretty often so growing them really isn’t
    worth it except it is fun and organic. Of course carrots are cheap too, so
    naturally they grow easy here and I grow them anyway. But strawberries are
    expensive and I have no luck growing them. Bell pepper here are expensive,
    especially the red ones so I have planted a lot…we’ll see… last year I
    over fertilized and got only two peppers. 🙁

    You may already know…your pepper plants can over winter if you build them
    a cold frame or put them in pots in your solar porch. You may even get some
    peppers in winter but you will definately have nice big plants next spring.
    I just learned that this year… I always tore out the plants in the fall,
    wrong thing to do apparently. I will be trimming them back and keeping them.

    Are you going to plant squash or is your area not good for squash? If there
    is one guaranty here it is squash… I planted zuccini, yellow crook neck,
    pumpkin, and patty pan squash last week and already have good sized starts.
    Yay! Only 45 days to harvest for most so if you do some now you might even
    get a second planting.

  191. girl112791

    The only thing I’m still wondering about is the compost in this. Is it
    going to be emptied out from the bottom? If so, will you have to pick out
    the worms and put them back into the center tube? And if you’re not
    composting food scraps, what’s the point of having the worms? Will the
    compost from the center even do anything for the plants? I’m just
    confused!

  197. BajaArtists.com

    Hi John, I’m new at this but i have a question, what’s your thoughts on
    Worm casting for compost and how would it compared to other compost on the
    market?
    I started a worm farm a few months ago and they are doing very well… i
    use coconut bricks, for bedding, (for my spoiled worms) but I was wondering
    what your thoughts on bedding and the value compared to cost.

    Ah Organic strawberries. Must taste like they are on fire. 🙂 Throw a few
    in a food processor with a little suger and blend till it turns to a puree,
    then mix with home made yogurt or make a homemade swiss roll. 😀 As long as
    you don’t mind the eaten leaves its alright I guess, though if you spend
    time getting rid of the insects manually, basil might be interesting to
    try. Though it might get rid of some of the good guys like ladybirds as
    well.

    Most kale lives through summer, but lettuce will go to seed in summer and
    so will radish and arugula and mustards, amongst some other things, like
    broccoli, but most kales can take the summer time really well as long as
    they dont go bone dry (mulching the soil helps)

    Good cow manure is pure gold and very natural. Wood forests are acidic and
    aren’t good environments for vegetables to grow in so the constant
    reference to forest ecology isn’t a good one when considering vegetable
    growing. Evolution has made some manures "nature’s fertilizer".

  217. Jeff Heriot

    G’day, thank you. it’s not too bad. The bits that are eaten don’t really
    effect the eating quality, I think it may have been the sweet potato leaves
    you were referring to.I looked at this video today & was amazed at how some
    things have grown. All the sweet potatoes, ginger, snake beans & Qld.
    arrowroot are gone. I now have heaps of spuds in, quite a few garlic & my
    strawberries are really powering on. It’ll be nice to have some organic
    strawberries. anyway, thanks again, I’ll ttyl, bye:o)

    The baby chickens are HUGE! So cute how they huddle and hang out together
    for nap time. Maybe you could pitch a little pup tent or tarp shelter for
    them to shelter under out of the rain and view of the hawk.

    Do chickens need ointment or anything for their wounds? I wonder if that
    head wound is a tallon mark from that darn hawk?? I rescued a little brown
    rabbit from the park once that had deep bloody tallon marks on his sides.

    Everything looks fab. My mums got a Kooky friend too. When we were living
    in Park Ridge we saw a Kooky grab a baby brown snake and do him in… They
    fun to watch hey. Those red shallots, arrowroot and ginger really take the
    command seriously… "Be fruitful and multiply" hey… LoL… I heard that
    in Sunday school many years back.

    Gardens and fruit trees are really turning into major enterprise with a lot
    of potential with preexisting greenhouse and chickens. Surely the electric
    fence and the hawk guard rope strung across help. Yes a lot of work and
    time, but a lot of potential for payback, reap what you sew literally. It
    all starts with a plan. Good job. You are now a farmer among the many other
    things you do.

    cold frame for cold tolerant things but for tomatoes and peppers etc,
    should I start them now or wait a few weeks? I have very limited space for
    starting indoors otherwise I would plant some every other week in order to
    have plants at a good size when the weather does break. Any suggestions?

    Great idea… the weight issue could be substantially lessened if shear
    braces were used… it is a bit dangerous for the structure unless it was
    built for weight on the roof… but since it is brick it is it is something
    to maybe brace the corners a bit… at least in Earthquake country like
    where we live… but I love the idea of urban gardening… very green!

    That compost looks much better than the stuff I got last year. I bought it
    because it was such good quality the year before and then discovered it was
    full of bits of hard plastic, plastic bags, sticks and what looked like
    pieces of slate. I think I’ll try a bag from my local store and see what I
    get.

    I think that I better thin out my tomatoes. lol I probably put them in my
    raised bed outside since it doesn’t rain like before. Most of my plants
    don’t receive sun but yet it still grow good. I had a tomato that didn’t
    receive sun but yet it gave lots of tomatoes. Can this be since I live in a
    tropical area the heat still gives some sort of sun rays? Great video. My

    you know, it’s a good idea to change where you plant things in your yard,

    This Years Compost Mix

  271. Beth DeRoos

    Since only grow heirloom vegetables the tomatoes stay in the same place
    every year. Come fall I carefully bend the plants over and cover with straw
    and some compost. Come spring they send up new growth. Makes for stronger
    plants as well.

    Was remembering listening to my Grandparents talk about planting a
    vegetable garden every spring here in California or Montana and how no
    matter the weather they were out and working come 8 am every morning, and
    then inside come evening. Rain, sun whatever the weather, they were out
    making sure the garden was big and well planted.

    Unlike some folks these days they did not have a grocery store to run to
    nor the money to be buying store bought food even monthly. I have that same
    mindset.

    what can’t go into a compost pile? The reason I ask is because someone
    dumped charcoal ash into the pile yesterday. We also found a old log with
    funky looking mushrooms growing out of it, not sure if the fungus is good
    or not for composting . Thanks in advance for any replies.

    year we superseeded any expectations and having already so much of
    strawberries, lettuces, kales and some other staff. For the first time we
    are really eating (could not allow yourself even a lot of organic foods
    from the stores before as it all sprayed and poisont). Thank you so much

    hi troy,this is a bit off topic of planting the garden but i hope youll
    read it . i had just by chance watched a video about grounding electric
    fence’s , rocks do not provide a suitable ground and it is my thought that
    the weed block you have put down will also be a problem as well . my
    thoughts are to remove the rocks , hold the weed block in half then put the
    rocks back so the rocks are not as wide so there is a better chance that
    smaller animals dont have as much of a chance to be standing on the rocks
    and not be grounded there for being able to get though with out getting a
    shock , youve put allot of work trying to provide for your self with the
    garden and the chickens and dont want it to be all for not , just my
    thoughts. wishing you the best drew

    will have to go non organic for the three months that it runs itself on.
    I’m going to make a 1 foot trench in my raised bed to have a mulch garden,
    and the worms will have access to each side then. I’m going to collect red
    worms outside of the raised bed to get started by putting a shovel into the
    ground and vibrating it. The worms come to you while vibrates. I don’t
    get the mind set of the people torchering them electrocuting them, putting
    soap on them to get them to come out, Why so vicious?

    I often find my home studies differ from scientific studies. For example
    the University of Florida says that in lab studies termites can not survive
    in mulch and mulch will not infect your house with termites. I see termites
    in mulch all the time. I find that plant roots seem to favor the rock dust
    and the sweetness of the plants is far more sweeter than not grown in rock
    dust. Rock dust is worthless though if you don’t have microbes breaking it
    down and making it bio available.

  320. Jose Sola

    Glacial rock dust is a bit expensive around here because of shipping.
    However there are many kitchen counter manufacturers around here. How do
    you feel about using the dust that comes out of the saws after cutting
    granite slabs?

    Maybe it’s just the varieties I’ve grown, but, in my experience,
    determinites don’t *really* set all their fruit and boom, it’s done. They
    do have a bush-like growth habit, but, it seems they have more of a bell
    curve of production where you have a few early ones building to a large
    flush and then have some stragglers that lasts late into the season.

    BTW, Just discovered your channel, and am enjoying it.

    G’day Mike, that’s really good to know, good luck with all those things you

    shuts the door to amirs padded room and you see in the distance a sign

    You know the way you increase the number of worms is to break them in half
    (they are male and female in one) they become another worm very quickly.
    Worm growers do this…Personally I just can’t do it (in laws once raised
    worms, I just like the good old fashion wait and let nature take it’s
    course.

    about having to stay somewhere else at night. I just wish you the best

    @Ian Wynne I agree that the yard has too many trees. I mean, don’t get me
    wrong… trees are great for natural shade and privacy, but this yard is
    pretty dark & shady. I’d definitely try cutting down a good portion of the
    trees. Great call.

  387. Fuzzy Wuzzy Anipals

    Instead of mixing dirt in buckets, I have long flat containers (about 6"
    deep), so I can get a rake in and use it to mix.

    We also took one of these containers and drilled holes on the top sides,
    strung rope through, made a wood bar for the front and now I can easily
    pull my tub full of dirt around even if it is soaked in water…no more

    G’day Ann, I had the little buddy sitting on my knee for the second time
    this morning taking food from me. He took off as soon as he/she had enough
    to eat. Our winters aren’t as cold as Sydney, but still cold enough to use
    a fire at night. Sometimes day & night. Depends where the wind’s coming
    from. I love that time of year, it doesn’t last long enough. I’ll talk
    later, bye:):) Mj

    Good advice concerning the neighbor who uses pesticides. Any reasonable &

  402. Rainbow Gardens

    Gardening is a strange little thing and so unlike anything else I have
    learned. Most people have at least 2 seasons (spring and summer) and
    there is only a short window of opportunity for "hands on" learning.
    Personally, I find most gardening books and plant information boring, I
    have to get out there in the garden and "do it". The Square Foot Gardening
    book (the only book I refer to) has wonderful charts about what we can
    plant before the last frost date and when we can begin the seeds for summer
    crops, all of it is timed around the last frost date (which is different
    for all of us).
    Sometimes I score and sometimes I do not, but it keeps it fun. I just
    plant as many things as possible and hope the rabbits don’t eat them, that
    I don’t pull it out by accident, the bugs don’t eat it, etc. haha,
    sometimes I get to harvest it and enjoy what I have grown. :))

  403. Adam Cooper

  408. Jeff Heriot

    WOW, that’s fantastic Michael, sounds like sweet potatoes will do well
    there. I don’t plant any more of them till Spring, in a little while most
    of my garden will be full of spuds, as I harvest the sweet spuds, I plant
    normal spuds. Then the opposite in the spring, part of that being sweet
    corn in the sunnier spots. ok, bye, Mj

  409. Michael Baldridge

    Wow you are going to have so much veggies. You definitely should not want
    for food this winter. you said you may sell some for extra money Have you
    been thinking about where you will sell them from and how you will display
    them (tables and tent for shading) I think you will make some extra cash if
    you can find a nice place to set up and sell the produce. Also you might
    need boxed areas to separate produce. Just something to consider as the
    garden grows. As for your strawberry patch use pallet wood cut to dif
    sizes. 8 to 12 inch or so. hammer in ground to make a border. I have a
    video of how it looks if you want to take a look at it.Helps for keeping
    the animals from eating them does not stop them but it does help. and also
    keeps them confined to that one area so you can get a nice bed of
    strawberries before letting them spread. And it is a fast way to make a
    boarder.

    Hey Wayne – GREAT tips! I like your humbleness in this video – we’ve all
    made those mistakes too, but that’s how you learn and refine! I’m all about
    using what I have! I like to make it a game to see how little I can spend
    on the garden and still make it look beautiful! Things may not be done
    exactly "right" according to some standards – but who cares? I’m the one
    who has to live with it!

    sooner or later I’m going to master this

    Have you ever grown your produce in just compost and then in compost and
    rock dust and then sent or taken the different produce to a lab to get them
    tested to see if it makes a significant difference in the nutrient levels
    within them? If not, I think that would be a really cool thing to do to get
    some rock solid evidence and to make a super interesting episode! Maybe you
    could even contact some labs and see if they would be willing to test them
    for free for educational purposes 🙂

    When planting perennials and trees in raised beds, how do you keep the soil
    level up after each season. Every year the soil sinks down 4-6 inches, and
    I don’t want to bury the trunks of the trees. What do you do with the
    feijoa trees that are in your raised beds? Do you keep adding more compost
    around the trunk of the trees?

    Hello John, Since you were talking about different containers I have a
    question. I was wondering if you have ever used Fabric Grow bags? If you
    have, mind sharing your thoughts.

  478. Sheila Mailett

    Mixing the soil looks too difficult, why can’t it be as easy as they say on
    their video. Now I do not think I cna do this. I was excited before but
    not using food scrape, all the different soil, etc
    What happened to the 2nd generation garden tower they showed 2 yrs ago but
    no one is selling them…a much better model that turns and even looks
    nicer?? Oh ya the prices were much lower?

    What ever you do, don’t transplant them it’s too late now their root system
    is huge, you are better off thinning them out at this point, cut them off
    don’t pull them out as you’ll screw the one up next to it. One plant
    produces a ton of sprouts if done right, I had some once that had over 7lbs
    of sprouts on one plant after I cleaned it. Lots of water, lack of water
    causes no sprout development or very bitter

    Lol that’s too funny you found that. It is a weed in North America 🙂 

  483. Adam Lawton

    Another great video! I’ve designed out my garden for next season, mainly
    using recycling bin that I got for free at the state recycling plant. If I
    took a 5 minute or so video walking you through my plan would you give me
    feed back? I’ve learned almost everything I know about gardening from your
    videos, so it would mean a lot to me. Thanks — Adam

    I water my desert garden more often for less time. (especially important
    during the heat of the day). Ensure that each cycle is long enough to get
    good penetration if you know what I mean.

  496. Robert31352

    In your opinion, do you think this would be good for growing strawberries?

    You didn’t get a house inspector before you buy the house? I thought they
    inspect every inch of the property.

  501. Harold Wong

    I would love to utilize my rooftop but weight is a major concern. What I’d
    like to find are plants with a high edible content to dirt ratio. In
    another words, one pot of dirt to grow a lot of plants. Lettuce would not
    be it but malabar spinach, sugar snap peas, etc. Any other recommendation?

  502. Pest Control of Houston

    Thank you. Very educational. I appreciate this upload for my own personal

    I love in the island and use this compost. It is the best compost u can buy
    on Oahu is the shizzle! John, didn’t know u were in Hawaii, I feel like I
    missed an op to meet u. Oh well, next time. Thanks for making dope vids!

  510. Mohanakrishnan Vijayarangam

    Was very glad to see him in person and hear him through. What a simple and
    a smart man. who is full of gardening knowledge and sharing with everyone
    interested. Although I was thinking, was it a dream… no no no. it’s dream
    come true. Really happy after taking a picture with him. 🙂 btw he
    mentioned in one of his vids about this event guys, which was taken after
    he broke his arm while fixing his bro’s garage. Anyway the even held @
    Ramsey NJ. And he was heading to NJ food festival…

  511. John Boen

    What did it cost to build out that soil, about $1500 bucks?

    That being said, I hadn’t considered integrating a compost bin into a grow
    bucket. Cool idea.

  512. boyinblue823

    Yea…. my beans have gotten out of control and I am no where near ready to
    put them outside.. the ground is still frozen in some areas…
    I think I started them all a little to early but Im not going to lie its
    been fun watching them grow and I was excited to get started.

  513. 50 Ducks In A Hot Tub

    I’ve been cutting back mine about every 8 days, leave 4-5 rows at the top
    so the plant can get enough energy from the sun to continue growing, it
    takes about 2-3 weeks for the sprouts to start showing, they are a slow
    plant about 180 day start to finish, and as you have found out big. They
    actually need to be at least 2 feet apart from each other minimum, in rows
    4 feet apart, by the end of the season they are about 30" – 36" tall. Frost
    makes them sweeter

  514. 1gotgoodz

    Cool video Ray, your farm is exploding!!! I’ve been teaching these Colorado
    farmers about the Praxxus Method for planting them tomatoes, lol. Take care

    Good info, thanks. I started making my own container soil this year.
    Whipped it up pretty much as you did except I also used worm castings.

  522. Jeff Lucco

    Thanks for the great information. I love to garden and always looking for
    ways to improve my harvest. How large should you let your seedlings grow
    before transplanting?

    this is called magical gardening…. methi seedlings turn suddenly into

  524. JRockLovinAtheist

    how much would it actually cost to grow organic food in pots? if you’re
    living in a condo or a townhouse? is it cheaper, then buying it at the
    store?

  525. Cristina Rodriguez

    Looks absolutely delicious , thanks for all the great recipes, I have been
    trying to start eating clean and seeing recipes like this really helps stay
    on track without getting bored. 

  526. David Dierlam

    Because you’re in Hawaii, is most of the material palm tree based? That
    means you’ve almost got coco coir. We use it around here in S.Texas and it
    just beats all other compost material out there. As usual your videos are
    wonderful.

  527. nikonmother

    John, seriously, we need you in maine too. dont just shoot from the hip!
    let us know where you are so we can expand your trip and cover a wider
    audience. I have a plant that is tasty, green and hot but i dont know what
    it is and even if i planted it…but i have been eating it. If you were
    here, i could ask you what it is. thanks a bunch!

  528. KassieS100

    I love your vlogs, they are real…you know what I mean, I really don’t
    enjoy watching people being all fake. They are always so fun and you show
    clearly how much you enjoy being a mom and wife!!! Your haul videos are
    awesome too, you always get the best deals!!! I was looking at some of your
    old videos where you talked about your facebook page but I can’t find it,
    not sure if you took it off or changed it. Good luck, have a beautiful
    summer with your little family. 

  529. Thumperlane Homestead

    Awe nice video!!! I just finished our seed starting greenhouse today.. Just
    intime for chilling snow! So excited!!!

  530. savgal1211

    Just build your own! Get a 55 gallon Blue drum ( from Emergency
    Essentualasor other store or Craigs;ist), if you have a saw or other tools
    and some P Vc pipe and tubing easy! Just got be handy!! just like 1 of
    those strawberry pots on steroids!!

  531. paperweightgirl

    Wow, that’s a lot of great advice. Thanks Wayne.

  532. stephen mcgregor

    can i keep cutting the big leaves back as i aint got the room,i planted
    them in a raised planter,i didnt no they would grow so big,only a novice

  533. JT Bear

    I knew I loved the look of that land!
    Seriously though, loads of people grew hemp as a patriotic ‘duty’ to help
    produce fabric during wartimes so I suspect there are many older pieces of
    farmland with similar ‘bonus’ crops.
    I love how lush and green your land is, keep these videos coming!

  537. Seemit Bharti

    John, not that I don’t like your videos, but you just over complicate every
    thing ! In my world, I just take soil from country side from someone
    willing and dump it. That does it. Soil/nature has its way to fix itself.
    Nature did not intend messing with it.

  538. ph1ogic

    hey jon just got a new house and a backyard what can i do to bring the soil
    back to life piss ash and azomite? haha

  539. MrPixelrancher

    David,
    I just came across your YouTube channel and have spent the last few days
    viewing EVERY video posted. Quite a "marathon" but I think I’ve caught up!
    An abundance of information that I can’t wait to put into practice. Our
    growing season is short and extreme … – 40°C to 40°C ( – 40°F to 100°F )
    but I think I’m up for the challenge. Thanks for sharing your wealth of
    information.
    Cheers, from Canada.

  540. Rod Banuelos

    great video!! really helpful as im doing peppers in containers. also trying

  543. DaddyOsInk

    I tried the "shotgun" approach a few years ago… I planted EVERYTHING that
    I could get my hands on. I found that I can grow kale, collards, peas,
    okra, corn, tomatoes, and herbs very well in my yard. Luckily I love all
    of those! ;)

    Ohhh this looks good.

  551. 50 Ducks In A Hot Tub

    My friend my climate is much farther north than you, I don’t know what your
    temperatures are like or is it possible to grow year round where you are? I
    suggest stopping in at a local nursery or garden store and ask some
    questions from the locals to get an idea and then hit YT again looking for
    tricks and ideas once you know the kinds of veggies that will grow the best
    in your area.

  552. questioneverythin101

    Thats hemp!! Feed it to your chickens…so rich in vit’s it crazy good for
    them!

  553. GreenScaper

    Drip irrigation is good but sub-irrigation is much better. These planters
    could easily be made into sub-irrigated planters (SIPs) offering increased
    production and water conservation. There would be no environmentally
    unsound runoff or threat of water leaks in the roof. Drain hole containers
    are clearly wasteful. Both water and oxygen are essential for vigorous
    plant growth. SIPs provide both a water and oxygen reservoir. Drip
    irrigated planters do not. Inside Urban Green

    I found this post very educational! This video presented various ways on
    how to control pest which is very useful to all kinds of gardeners. Through
    this video, I’ve learned how to protect and conserve my garden. You will
    never regret on watching this! One thing for sure is that I will truly
    recommend this video!

  556. Olgath

    While I agree with increasing the nutrition in the food we grow, I can’t
    agree with doing it in unsustainable ways. The best produce I have ever
    eaten was from my grandfather’s organic garden, where he constantly mulched
    with organic matter from his property, and constantly added his organic and
    nutrient-rich compost to the soil. Not once in his entire life did he ever
    use rock dust, and I have never tasted better produce. Rock dust may add
    nutrition, but I don’t think it’s necessary.

    Hi John. I always enjoy your videos. I have a question about watering. I
    live in Rosamond, CA (high desert). Is it better to water a vegetable
    garden more frequent for less amount of time or less frequent for longer
    time? I know they always talk about less frequent with longer watering time
    for deeper root development but my plants don’t seem as healthy when doing
    it that way and bugs attack more.

    You can buy an engraver for really cheap to write the plant tags on metal

    to remember what I did, and two days later I cannot recall so now I record
    everything in each bed in my computer with the plant and transplant dates.

    You don’t have any concerns about the chlorine in the city water killing
    off the beneficial bacteria that you worked so hard to place in there?
    Just curious… I’m thinking about setting out a 50 gallon drum and filling
    it with city water, uncovered, for 24 hours. Then all the chlorine would
    evaporate out over night… But I am curious about your take on this.

    its hemp, its indigenous to the whole northern area by you. they grew hemp
    for yrs during ww2 an now it grows everywhere out there. i dont believe its
    illegal if it grows on its own meaning you didnt plant it. you need to look
    into the history an the laws about wild hemp

    The Golden Turnip. One of our early permaculturists died recently. Two days
    before I went to the area he developed in Plainfield, VT where I saw some
    35 year old chestnut trees. Nicco Rubin of East Hill Farm would be the man
    to give you a tour there. In Columbia County NY Hawthorne Valley is a great

    He certainly shares info on all of what has been planted with good ideas on
    how to maintain what you have grown……he doesn’t however go into how
    deep or far apart each plant should be..etc…his suggestions are more

    Ants like dry conditions, so keeping the strawberry bed moist may help, and
    blasting with water from a hose can dislodge ants and send them scurrying
    off temporarily – this probably won’t get rid of them completely though.
    Surrounding the plants with diatomaceous earth may help to deter them. If
    you’re feeling particularly sadistic you can pour boiling water down the
    ants’ nest to kill them.

    So much better to use a yard for growing useful plants instead of a lawn
    which is only useful if you have a herd of some good animal to graze on
    it. It may take me a few more seasons, but I am going to do it.

    Terry, actually you are suppose to let the frost hit them many times, the
    more frost hits the sweeter they get. The first year I didn’t do this and
    got some sprouts, last year I found out about this process in late Aug or
    early Sept so they didn’t develop like they should of. This year I should
    get a whole bunch since I’m doing it early, they should be done around mid
    to end of Oct, they need the cool weather to grow right. They should really
    look like Palm Trees when you’re done in the fall

    In the middle ages, in Europe, the serfs were not allowed to hunt, because
    all game belonged to someone. They also had to give a percentage of crops
    they grew to the landowners, so the only uncontrolled food source they had
    was the ocean. Having said that, don’t eat fish from the Pacific.

    Good luck on the blue potatoes. I tried them last year. My coworker gave me
    a few. They were small but I didn’t wait until the plant died off so really
    that was my fault. They were good though. A bit firmer potato than some
    others I’ve had. Really beautiful though! Thanks for the reminder on
    hilling up. Time to do that to mine. Nice video. The picture is so clear.

    A community garden would be a fun idea for a mobile home situation.

    Hey Wayne, one of my coworkers was telling me about the jiffy peat plugs
    growers. You know the plugs that expand in water. You then put your seed
    into them. I got a small jiffy green house planter for my patients at work.
    It has 10 spots with ten plugs. I got it because it was clean for the
    environment I work in. I planted new pumpkin seeds in there 4 germinated
    and are growing. The remainder got moldy and did nothing. Do you have any
    experience with these peat plugs planters? If so have you had this problem
    with them? I’m trying to figure out if it is the jiffy plugs or maybe bad
    seeds that I just bought.

    Thanks for sharing the tip. I don’t know if purple potatoes grow in my zone
    8-9. I normally only grow red and white.

    I was only able to hill my potatoes once this year but i did cover them
    with some hay. We will see if that makes a difference on yield. I was also
    about a month late because i lost my first crop due to soggy ground and
    rains in Feb.

    To anyone that digs trenches for planting potatoes. If you live in an area
    which could receive to much rain, don’t dig your trenches below grade or
    you will just have a pool of mud and rotten potato seeds.

    I leaned my lesson and now draw up a row and then plant the seeds at or
    slightly above grade (usually a 2-3" deep furrow). then i take and cover
    the potatoes, as they grow, with the dirt i had from creating the furrow
    and also pull dirt up from in between the rows.

    Peat Moss is acidic.
    I dump everything in a pile and mix with a shovel then shovel up and amend

    Okay, I understand Alex & his gang are trying to promote the "info war" but
    it’s becoming a little too sensationalized now these days. The very real

    attempt to wake people up. I think if this is viewed as a show & ONLY that,
    it then causes more complacency then not knowing what’s going on at all.

    John, your vid shows the limit of OMRI Cert., . While the compost at this
    company is in compliance with OMRI standards, thier source product remains
    questionable. Any homeowner could have sprayed thier lawn or plants with
    2,d4, Diazinon, etc. The same limit applys to any commercialy produced
    organic fert- with 85% of the worlds cotton being GMO, what are the odds of
    getting organic cottonseed meal? The same applies to blood & bone meal-were
    the cattle raised organicly? probably not, so it remains Our responsibility
    to grow our food as organicly as possible. Everyone needs to understand the
    limitations of any certifcation program.

    Remember, not all potatoes will respond to hilling methods, due to how the
    tubers develop. Only specific varieties, namely the indeterminates.

  766. amorfini498

    Everyone should just mulch with straw, deciduous tree leaves, or wood chips
    instead of buying humus and carbon. Mulching with these things is very
    effective in encouraging fungi and long term humus and carbon in the soil.
    I also recommend using gaia green rock dust, ive seen prices as low as $18
    for 50lbs. Compost is cheap if buy the normal stuff, you dont gotta buy the
    expensive one. Tilling and turning of soil is damaging to the entire soil
    food web.

    I ended up harvesting my compost early, sifting it thru a 3/4 inch grate so
    its not as fine as I wanted… But I did it all and planted my Chard,

    Beautiful plant, we discovered it by accident last year in a mixed wild

    planted seeds for four more varieties two days ago. I am going to raise
    these in the house. I will plant some later again in March that I plant in
    soil and containers. I am also excited by plant watermelon and some midget
    cantaloupe.. All of these are varieties that can grow in short grow season
    that I have. Last but not least, I have three varieties of eggplant. I have
    been growing lettuce and Swiss chard in the house this winter. I should be
    able to start harvesting both next week.

    I’m letting my seeds that dropped last year (heheh, it’s official now) grow
    up how they want and fostering the ones who like to grow, hopefully it’s
    the greens I love to eat best.

    I try not to get too excited, cause if I do I get barned out (you know if
    you live in a barn and it’s great, but then live there to long never going
    out and get so sick of it? Like that) I just try to maintain a mildly happy
    glow about the whole thing, sustainable gardening.

    Hopefully in talkin about being excited so much you don’t get a jealous
    type along who’ll claim that the whole excited thing was their idea, but
    they’re happy they could inspire you, and kinda claim your vid. It’s rare,
    but has been known to happen 🙂

    I’m playin, but I do love your vids, while trying not to get too excited,
    but it’s difficult. I am already thinking of spring, what amount of bs I’ll
    spread around (no, not bull, but bunny stuff)

    I need to get more into kale is what I need, the kale I planted seemed to
    get choked out by other greens. I like putting in the nitro for greens,
    then I can add other stuff early spring so it will be ready for the warm
    veggies.

    Thanks for the great vid 🙂 didn’t mean for this to get so long

    An idea for the porch would be to take some screening materials and hang it
    from the top and temperately anchor to the bottom, once it gets colder
    unhook the bottom and roll it up and zip tie to hold it up. This will help
    against mosquitoes that are most likely as bad as they are where I am in
    Michigan, I have already killed a ton today.

    Organics dark side is Blood meal and Bone Meal fertilizers in my opinion
    (Bone meal is a mixture of finely and coarsely ground animal bones and
    slaughter-house waste products).So basically your feeding your plants
    Factory farmed gmo fed, possibly diseased animals left over blood/ body
    parts. Yummy. Not really all the organic one can argue.

    resources that I outline in this video (How To Get Heirloom Seeds (a couple
    of options)).

    I don’t know if I’ll be settled into a new place soon enough to have an
    all-out garden but as soon as I am, I want to vermipost as well! I hope it
    works out for you. Are you making your own worm bins or buying some?

    I also love the looks of seed heads of many flowers/herbs and have saved
    seeds from them before. I usually put them in paper envelopes and they seem
    to stay well. Thanks for showing your progress and I love the flower

    Still think you should consider building a pole barn around your motor home
    instead of building anothe small home. The motor home has everything you
    need already done. Why reinvent the wheel? In a SHTF situation, you would
    be further ahead.

    Work when it’s cooler. Here people get up at 5 or 6 am as it is getting

    take a proper sleep. Get up around 6 pm ready to work in the garden again
    for a couple of hours or more. I try to keep to this regime, it is good
    when it is too hot.

    Sorry for the ignorance but I have heard peat based compost is bad because
    harvesting it is destroying ancient environmental spaces that take 1000’s
    of years to recover. I have been told not to use peat based compost, so as
    you are an organic farmer that cares about the environment, why do you use
    peat based compost?

    Troy, In the beginning of your video those large bees are carpenter bees or
    wood borers. You can tell the difference with the large bees by there butt.
    If there butt is yellow it is a bumble bee, if there butt is black it is a
    carpenter bee. The carpenter bee bores a whole usually in 2×4’s the exact
    size of there body and about 11/2 into the wood. This is the way they nest.
    What I usually do is look for the wholes the size of a carpenter bee and
    fill them with caulk. You have to stay rather persistent with those because
    they are persistent. On another note it appears you are coming along rather
    well, Good job !

  956. Mike Bourret

    I suggest doing a nutrient analysis on the two broccoli heads and report
    which has more nutrients. I suspect the smaller one will be packed with
    more nutrition. Most studies on nutrition in vegetables prove that smaller
    equals more nutrition and larger equals less nutrition. This sounds counter
    intuitive because it is. Scientists found when a plant has to struggle for
    nutrition in the soil it actually causes the resulting vegetable to be
    smaller and more nutritious.

    David, this is not word for word. I took your general statements and
    condensed some into sentences that still express what you are saying. I
    hope this is good enough for your translations. 🙂

    Now I just wanted to show you how a compost area might look like. We have
    some leaf mulch here, now i spent much of the morning separating 3
    different kinds of materials. There was a big pile ontop of that old
    compost pile there, we have a lot of these old branches, leaf mulch. What
    I’ve also done is shredded bigger branches and this pile here is green
    stuff, plenty of flies with vegetable, it will be mixed with brown stuff.
    Smaller branches, older compost pile here, lovely black stuff here with
    little branches which is important because too much carbon content in soil
    will rob nitrogen from soil. Softer branches are okay, bigger branches are
    not okay. Before we talk about how we make the compost heap, we talk about
    this heap I made two months ago. I made a video on it. We see black stuff
    in it, its half decomposed, twigs need to be broken, there is worms, worms
    are great. The compost has cooled down and some nasturtium flowers growing
    here.

    How to make it: use brown carbon materials bark, mulch, paper, cardboard
    leaves twigs, then comes water, fungi and bacteria make use of it. Then
    branches are the brown and also allow air pockets to come into compost. Air
    is important for fungi to break down the heap, green material we use
    vegetable peelings, cow manures, then add soil for worms so worms can have
    it to break down compost material. Eventually we go back to browns, water,
    then greens, every now and then we use an inoculant, which is fungi found
    in the forest. Worm castings or adding sweet compost is very good for and
    innoculum. Another thing is, different materials in the garden, weeds, food
    scraps, leaves, branches, if you can make sure you have a certain amount of
    carbon and nitrogen (25:1) if you have these quantities in the right
    amount, the decomposition process will do very well. Easiest way to think
    of it is a sandwich, brown on the outside and thin layer of green inside.
    Also recommend, with higher compost, make levels of brown and green, add
    soil in-between, up to a meter or 2 meters, turn it once a day. It will
    heat up a lot and adding water will cool it down. I was using a thermostat
    to make sure its not above 60C, but u can leave it there for a day and if
    its hot to the touch you should turn it and water it, if its not hot then
    its okay. You can use this compost for compost tea if you care for it
    enough. Bring in microbes from a wormery or an old compost heap that smells
    sweet to ensure bacteria. Throw in fungi to innoculate every now and then.
    Quickly here, this is hyphen, (fungi decomposing this compost). Hope that
    answered a lot of question in regards to making your own compost, This is
    different from a wormery that’s a low, 30cm high heap, we feed it by adding
    nitrogen and carbon materials and worms as well. Now if you have any
    questions drop a comment on Youtube, Facebook or private message me, thanks
    for watching.

    It sounds like it’s similar to using azomite (rockdust) along with epsom

    manure & compost, and I’m able to get pretty similar results in my gardens.

  989. LDSPrepper

    Never. This is true in any gardening situation as long as you are giving
    the plants all the nutrients they need. The soil is there to support the
    plant, provide aeration and drainage, control temperature and hold
    nutrients. Any soil will do that. The sawdust and sand mixture is really
    good because it is light so roots grow without a struggle and it is
    disease, bug and weed free.

    I am also not much of a fan of the sprinklers. I tried using them last
    year. Not only do they water unnecessary areas they create a problems with
    fungus and wash away pollen. All the waste water is just watering the
    weeds. I switched to soaker hoses this year (not a huge fan of them either)
    but they seem to water only what is needed.

    I use straw, wood chips, cardboard, and plastic for weed control. But then
    again I have 4 extremly large gardens. I like to use recycled plastic from
    the local farms. its black on the bottom and white on top. The white helps
    reflect some of the sunlight back onto the bottom of the plants and the
    black really kills the weeds and holds in heat. You are so lucky that you
    can plant outside, I am almost full up in my greenhouse and it was 15
    degrees outside last night. NY sux

    Beet greens are still very useful! I like growing beets because they are a
    2 for 1 vegetable. Delicious sweet beets and tender nutritious beet greens
    all in one space. Adding minerals to the plants not only makes the plants
    healthier but also more healthy to eat since those minerals get transfered
    into the eater. Again, a win-win!

    I’m seeking understanding. I guess I’ve missed something along the way
    here. How is it sustainable if you do not possess the capabilities to make
    or create more of it yourself? (the solution of nutrients, sawdust, sand,
    etc.) I just drew my own conclusion from the movie that if Paul, in
    earnest, was trying to replicate the Garden of Eden, or even the success of
    the woods adjacent to his property, that naturally their would be animals
    fertilizing it. Thanks LDSP.

    As I till the garden the tiller naturally makes rows and I sometime then go
    back and pull up a little more soil on the rows.

  1014. LDSPrepper

    The beets were not covered. If you have seen my other Mittleider videos
    you’ll see I don’t have the pvc setup for the cover so I never got them
    covered. On the other hand you might notice that my wife’s beets are
    covered and have been the whole time. They also get full sun all day while
    mine don’t. You are correct it isn’t a fair comparison. My wife had two
    very big advantages. Raised beds to warm faster. Another reason to use them
    instead of BTE.

    to keep my pile and garden the natural way instead of the MacDonalds-way 🙂
