    Great video John. You have a great range of interesting plants there in
    that garden.

  3. I like that cookie cutter digger thingy. I wonder if they come in different

  4. hi john thanks for this video. i have a small slightly raised bed in my
    back yard and though i water daily the soil under the cocoanut husk mulch
    i’m using is always bone dry the next time i go to water. my question is
    this… does this mulch wick the water from the soil back into the air
    drying it out and basically making my plants struggle to grow? i also use
    sugarcane mulch and get a similar result. trust me i make sure i’ve watered
    sufficiently to saturate the soil. do you have a mulch you like to use in a
    slightly raised bed say around 5 – 6 inches above ground level if so what
    is it? thanks john

  5. John, need your help! My garden bed was filled with coco coir, 5-6 inches,
    some veggies did okay some did not. They received liquid organic food, but
    it doesn’t seem as great of a medium as I was lead to believe. I think as a
    soil additive would have better but soil removed came from ?????? So living
    in Ohio what do I need to do for winter and how to prep for spring? 

  6. John, how about ” this consideration for your consideration”. Sorry just
    being funny. Another great video.

  7. whats that tye dye looking thing behind you when you were sitting down,
    this may sound weird but it looks really good in the garden and has given
    me an idea to put something like that behind the plants in my garden
    against the wall, the contrast between that and the plants would look nice,

    John! I seriously have to thank you for all your inspiration and my better
    health! All my life I have been struggling with anemia and low iron. After
    a blood transfusion a year ago I hit my all time low of 7 on a scale that
    goes to 180 as the top end. I also just had a baby in August (very iron
    depleting!). Well, my blood results as of April were at 21 after having
    iron injections and taking many iron pills…four weeks after baby I’m at
    83!!!! I’ve never been past 21, so why has this happened?! Because I built
    a raised garden bed and used 100% food compost and Gaia green rock dust and
    we’ve been having kale smoothies in our VitaMix! Checkout my raised bed
    enclosure I finished building at 7 mths pregnant! Thank you so much John, I
    feel great!! Keep up the videos and inspiration! It really makes a

    soil is key to having a successful garden.

    You are brave planting lemon balm in there. I once laughed at an elder
    gardener warning me against planting lemon balm. Now I have lemon balm


  18. How can i get rid of club root I have check online but can’t find a
    specific answer plz . If anybody knows I can really need some advice

  19. Pardon my ignorance please, but when you speak of edible plants that are
    medicinal, should I be careful not to eat too much of them, or is it okay
    to make salads with lots of them in them?

  20. Fuck. I just realized…. This dude is a stoner. Hell yeah. Lifetime

  21. Hey John, Since you are into energy dense foods, have you thought about
    Spiralina or chlorella?
