    Can you do a video based on gardening from things found at a normal grocery? Like growing onions from old onions, garlic from old garlic bulbs, etc.

  3. John, show me a chemical/petroleum free Garden, that will feed one man a 2400 calorie diet daily X 365 days.

  4. wouldn’t it be best if the aphids didn’t have to be crushed to death?

  5. good video.

  6. I always enjoy your videos, informative and nice to see a person talking about something they are passionate about. I too have crushed the aphids on my plants by hand, a few days of being diligent about it I have often wiped out entire infestations of them. Though I plan to try the jalapeno and garlic spray this year and see if they don’t start at all.

  7. what are good garden magazines to subscribe too?

  8. What is in compost sold at stores?

  10. I just read something the other day that apple trees are one of the things you should not waste your time starting from seeds. YEARS before you’ll harvest anything, and you can buy good two year trees at a reasonable price when you think about how much you spend on apples in a year if you eat one or two a day. If you’re feeding more than one person, even a better deal!

  11. jon have you thought about growing on your rouff top garden

  13. Well … I don’t care about broken, old and used furniture. As long as I can use it my money is for the garden! It is about 100m² but has a variety of plants, a small pond, a small rocky garden, annuals, perennials, tropical plants, herbs, vegetables, fruits, a shed, a small tomato greenhouse, water barrels, compost barrels, and it’s far from finished as now I’ll go up in height :) I wish it was bigger to build a greenhouse but I don’t complain, I’m happy with what I have!

  14. Well John, I think you are THE BEST! I saw a great idea for making super cute seed bombs as a Valentine’s gift. What are your thoughts on seed bombs? Yeah, nay? Thank you for sharing you projects & knowledge.

  16. Thanks again for your videos!

  17. Awesome attitude. I love hearing this and it’s exactly my philosophy. You can’t do everything immediately, but get started! And I loved that you give credit to the open market of people doing services for eachother freely. keep it up brother~~

  18. Can’t wait to see what you do with a farm, John! I love that you grow all that beautiful food on less than an acre! You are so inspiring.

  19. Great advice, thanks for the wise words.

    i love growing my own food (^_^)

  21. I am of your

  22. John, its all awesome!! Do I correctly understand your using 100% organic compost and mixing in rock dust? Which means you are not using any top soil or top soil / compost mix? Do you have a vido link that discuss this more? I just built my first raised bed and now need to fill it with soil. I have read some pros and cons of using 100% compost vs. a good topsoil/compost mix. Can you elebrate or giving me additional info. Thanks, Frank

  23. I don’t remember on which one of your videos I saw that you’re gonna be in Santa Rosa some time soon and you’re gonna be selling some of your tree collards, please remind me when that is.

    Yes. I do rotate the non-perennial crops. If you have the space, grow something like fava beans or clover over the winter, in a bed or two on the “rotation” to fix nitrogen.

  25. Great points John.
