  1. Hey John, I was just wondering if you have ever checked out Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew? Its an amazing, revolutionary way of gardening and was hoping to see you do a video on it…:)

  2. I think you should get a big bus and have field trips to all these destinations you frequent.

  3. That should be tip #1 :)

  4. nice man!

    I cant grow any of those were I live lol. Sounds yummy though.

  5. “making food accessible”?? I’d like to know where in America food IS inaccessible? What was that she said? Kids with dietary issues – or something? Yea the issues are their parents can’t keep em out of the McDonalds!

  6. Thank you so much for all of the awesome tips. I always enjoy learning more from your channel, especially how to get better yields. That video where you held up the Dino Kale leaf got me really trying to figure out how best to landscape my yard to attempt a successful season. Good Growin

  7. Thank you. I am going to use a couple of old rain barrels, and create my own compost barrels. Peace.- GrayBeard

    better to collect it in a separate compost pile and add things like fallen leaves, grass clippings, and leftover veggie & fruit matter. this way it will “cook” out most parasites & undigested seeds.  next spring, till it into the garden about 3-4 weeks before you’re going to plant.

  10. i prefer the 1/4 inch drip tube but hooked to pvp pipes and connectors. To me the problem was when the 1/4 lines were hooked to the bigger drip tubes. When the 1/4 lines are hooked to manifolds on risers connected to pvc piles it works great.

  11. 7 Thumbs Down @WTF?

  12. Quick question for you: This fall, should I till my neighbors cow manure into my garden to sit for the winter? My girlfriend was curious if this was safe for the food we grow & eat the following garden year. Thanks- GrayBeard

  13. Holland is basically all clay soil

    John are you growing any Hot Peppers? And how about some tips on Bug control for Peppers and tomatoes

  15. the “aerating machine” is actually a fish tank air pump that he uses. I also got some boogie brew & will put some on my plants soon too! :)

    Here’s a vid where he shows how to brew it:

    The soil is about 9 months old, and was a good garden mix from a local vendor. I loaded it full of vermiculite as well, so it has the minerals, so I don’t think it’s been depleted yet.

    Hello John. I have a pretty good sized raised bed garden, and most of the stuff is well into the seeding process. The seed pods are nice and fatty, but are not brown yet. My question is, I am applying my molasses/root juice/bio-bloom juice to only the plants that are growing to produce fruit. While just giving the seeding plants water. I know applying more to the seeding plants may create higher quality seeds, but is it a good sacrifice to save money? Soils

  18. man. i so want to start a garden this year. i want to make raised beds this year for square foot gardening. unfortunately there is still ice on my driveway and the ground is still frozen. :(

  19. The tireless crusader ! Great inspiration John. Thanks for your great work.

  20. Hi John, I ordered the boogie brew based on your previous video. Thanks for the tip. We love your videos. Where do you buy the aerating machine that you talked about?

  21. @happybuddyperson Wow! You have been busy. John has inspired me to pull up 10×6 section of my lawn for I can grow more greens in my yard.

  22. Thank you for everything that you do! I really appreciate it.

  23. I agree, but everyone should be aware of how their roofs are constructed and how much weight it can hold. Roofs in the summer can be unbearable, so I think heat loving plants would be great.

  24. Last year I switched over to organic gardening (using mycorrhizae) and saw a marked difference in my tomatoes. After discovering you about a week ago I got the Boogie Blue filter with the sample compost tea, which should be enough for my small plot. Also, got that glacial rock dust Azomite. Most importantly you have encouraged me to grow more than tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. Got a bunch of herbs, kohlrabi, rutabaga, brussel sprouts and artichokes. Next, TREE COLLARDS! A big thanks to you!
