    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 ????

    Hawaii must be a perfect place for gardeners; tropical islands where its
    rains year round. It’s a travesty not to grow your own foods in such

    button.. It helps the people who post the video out!

    yes Hawaii is insane expensive. I used to be able to get bananas in San
    Diego for .79 /lb. Now I’m paying over 1.20/lb for imported and local.

    COMPOST! It’s not just for breakfast anymore! :)

    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!

    Yep.. hawaii living.. gotta live simple cuz it can be very expensive

    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.

    HELP!! Can someone tell me the best pesticide replacement to grow organic
    food? Im growing in the u.k and bugs have started to eat my veggies and i
    don’t no what to do, PEACE!!

  15. 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.


    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
    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.

  17. Арти Эс

    i do! i do! all the food scraps!

  18. Stephen Legaree

    I could not agree more. You will never get a better fruit or veggie then
    from your garden and there is no substitute for great home made soil!

  19. Jerry Gomez

    Thats it! I am going to start my compost pile now…. :)

  20. freakygeaktwo

    wow makes me glad I was able to find three types of amendments for ten
    bucks a few weeks ago one bag I got two of 🙂 or it would not have been
    over nine bucks.

  21. Onward to Innisfree

    For comparison, that bag costs $6 in California (and other places on the
    mainland probably).

  22. Alicia Eggleston

    I just started my very first compost pile yesterday. For now it’s just a
    pile not in a container or anything but i’m trying lol. I was wondering
    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.
