    You can watch the original install episode when I built this garden at
    How to Build a FREE Plastic Crate Raised Bed Garden

  2. Fantastic idea for people who are not allowed to install a garden in the
    yard of their rental home or for small yards where a small moveable/mudular
    raised bed is needed.

  3. i totally remember you installing that bed. I love how they look to be
    holding up. really cool setup, and a plus that they are free! keep the
    great videos coming buddy!

  4. This dude is awesome highly recommend his videos lots of great tips and
    ideas

  5. I really enjoy the low cost solutions to common problems! It would be
    interesting to see how he does in a year or so!

  6. John, where do you get all of your seedlings?

  7. I like how you travel to different places, to see the climate changes and
    irregularities throught the zones.

  8. Great video of your friend garden John, you looks exhausted at the end. But
    it’s worth it for automatic irrigation system. Can’t wait to see Update of
    it few months later

  9. John mentioned a moisture meter in the vid. If you guys plan on buying
    this, make sure they also can test the available light in the area, as well
    as the PH of the soil. This is what I have at the moment, and it’s really
    handy. Not only that, they are inexpensive.

  10. Gotu kola=DOLLAR WEED here in SWFL…woot! it is PERVASIVE and everyone is
    trying to get RID of it..(not me ‘cuz I found out it is EDIBLE!) yay!

  11. Lol. I asked that before you said it in the video. Lol. Whoops. Do you save
    more seeds from plants that you’ve grown and they go to seed or do you buy
    more of them? I was just wondering.

    Where can I get FREE crates? Exactly what I need for my herbs, and they
    have bigger surface areas than pots.

  13. I really liked this follow up video because it shows the common pitfalls of
    the less fanatical or obsessed gardner and most importantly it offers
    practical solutions. I don`t have a drip irrigation system but then again
    I am out every single day and fussing over my babies.

  14. wow, this is very fugly. why not use recycled/reclaimed wood planks,
    rocks, or even use wine bottles as an edge. 

  15. Is rice and meaty foods OKAY in a compost bin? If not, what do we do with
    it?

    John, I like your vids and tips on growing fresh and untainted veggies.
    Free containers are not an option I see around here lately. Most are
    gathered up by those that see their worth to sell to others. The vid you
    did on Veteran Compost was also great but here, that resource is mostly not
    available as most groceries put past date produce in a compactor to be
    written off and taken to the land fill. So sad it’s all about the money.

  17. Great vid, thanks for making it!

    what I love about your channel is these kind of videos is that it changes a
    mindset, you don’t have to do much to really improve yourself, your
    surroundings and ultimately nature by just changing a few habbits.

    Great video

  20. should try some Chinese Flowering Cabbage. :) John

  21. Just imagined John breaking into strangers gardens, building raised beds
    and planting vegetables. Would be a funny thing to see this happen.

  22. I have just started growing potatoes in containers and am well impressed. I
    videoed the whole procedure if you are interested. Great video.

  23. That’s awesome!

  24. Where can I get that plastic crates?

  25. I need a garden like this because I live in a very rocky mountain area
    where all underground is rocks. Thanks for the cool idea! Totally going to
    do something like this now I’m on my own little journey to health.
