  1. A community garden would be a fun idea for a mobile home situation.
    Bringing people together to grow things would help people get along better.
    Living in such close quarters can be stressful at times. A garden for
    everyone would really relieve some of that stress.

    Starting to sound like great results cannot be had without buying
    “products”… ugh…
    I was really trying to avoid that ~

  3. just watching 10 sec but i love that shirt!

  4. I can’t stand when someone tells me that I cannot plant certain things or
    build raised beds.

  5. when gardener on the phone said “you cant grow that here in Florida!” i
    would have simply and nicely said ” then why do they sell the seeds for it
    here in Florida?” lol

  6. A nice tour of a garden maintained by a guy with a great attitude. For
    plant ID tags I use modelers enamel paint on a rock. 

  7. I have never lived in a mobile home; it is very unlikely I ever will. So
    why is this such a wonderful and inspiring video for me? John is a real
    missionary for real food and organic gardening and his message is a clear
    one: come on everybody! No matter where you live you too can do this. Great
    video. And to the guy whose garden this is in South Florida I say: hats off
    to you. This is an impressive garden.

  8. i invest many hundreds of dollars in my garden every year. lol

  9. Love this!

  10. John it is absolutely great that you share the successes in hard to grow
    locations! That is one of my goals is to show on the opposite end of the
    spectrum that you can grow quite well and a wide variety of fruits and
    vegetables!

  11. Why is it that Tornado’s and Ex-Coctail Waitresses always end up in trailer
    parks?

  12. Great video! Perfect timing too because my mom is thinking about moving
    into a mobile home park and I wondered if she can have a garden. We just
    need to find one with sunny yard. Thanks John!

  13. I live in a mobile home park and am not allowed to have a garden. I’ve
    been here for 14 years and have NEVER adhered to their rules. I grow
    enough to can green beans, beets, tomatoes, potatoes, and I’m sure one or
    two other things that I can’t think of now. But the point is, the rule is
    STUPID and I will not follow it. Growing ANYTHING is a good thing.
    (Except “M”, maybe)

  14. I guess he hasn’t gotten his aloe pups in the mail yet.

  15. the more mistakes you make the faster u learn!

  16. I like how they did the bricks around it.
    You don’t ever seem to stumble on your words (from practice making all
    those videos, huh?) that’s very good! Cute muscovy duck! I saw about 6
    turkeys in someone’s front yard today while I was running. Hahaha, wow,
    that guy has every garden item you can think of (near the end of the
    video)! Oooh, that book at 31:40 looks pretty interesting!!! Oh, I have
    that book by Rosalind Creasy. It’s good! Gnomes are scary! Don’t those
    things come alive at night?! yikes, lol

  17. That is a great garden, thanks for the tour.

  18. You can buy an engraver for really cheap to write the plant tags on metal
    strips from the cans you suggest. I notice that I always think I am going
    to remember what I did, and two days later I cannot recall so now I record
    everything in each bed in my computer with the plant and transplant dates.
    My North Central FL greens garden is booming from all the rain we had, plus
    the azomite, organic fert and worm castings, thanx to you John, you are the
    best, so generous and personable and helpful!

  19. Great video, thanks for posting. Feel motivated again now

    I ended up harvesting my compost early, sifting it thru a 3/4 inch grate so
    its not as fine as I wanted… But I did it all and planted my Chard,
    Broccoli, carrots, Cilantro, snow Peas and Watermelon… Wish me luck !

  21. Great video , If anyone else wants to grow you own delicious fresh fruit
    and veg simply it’s worth considering – Banfan Incredible Organic Miracle
    (do a google search)? Ive heard some amazing things about it from my m8 –
    great!

  22. Thank you for featuring this beautiful Florida vegetable garden. I’m 3
    years into experimenting with my own organic garden in West Central FL. I
    am always disappointed when some say you can’t grow a good vegetable garden
    in Florida so thanks for the proof otherwise!

  23. Exactly John! Learn as you grow.. That is what I have been doing since last
    May when I started watching your videos … I’m near Fort Myers Florida, so
    I love these videos !!! Thanks again for uploading 

  24. One step further, just buy a Mobile Home Park like this guy and share with
    the residents. :) https://www.youtube.com/user/mhpgardener

  25. Growing watermelons organicly is just about impossible. I had the same
    issue twice. He most likely had a vine borer.
