    New Jersey IS NOT the Northeast. Folks from the northeast mostly HATE New
    Jersey, which is the worst of the Mid-Atlantic States, if not all of the

    Jersey short didn’t help. But FYI the Northeast starts at New Yorks
    Southern Border.

    New England starts at Connecticut and RI’s southern border. 

  4. dpla5762

    This is not the northeast. John please help a gardener out who lives in
    norther New Hampshire. What am I to do to be successful? What varieties
    can I grow? King of the north is listed for peppers but it is always a
    failure. Look at the reviews. The northern varieties always do poorly.

    @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.

  6. NopeNoThanks

    Good advice concerning the neighbor who uses pesticides. Any reasonable &
    neighborly neighbor would most likely agree to that deal. Why not? It’s
    free to them and much more healthy.

    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.

    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
    biodynamic farm well worth visiting. Well I could go on. Enjoy your tour of
    the NE.
