  1. I wouldn’t recommend Seed Savers Exchange. Unfortunately, they were bought out by Monsanto.

  2. Hi chuchuwhy. Have you see Willem van Cottem’s bottle towers? They use soil, no pumps or other extras. Simple as they come. Search Youtube for “Building a bottle tower for container gardening.” [If you have clean water, you can skip the sand... you'll see what I mean when you watch it.]

  3. John has a video on seed catalogues. Do a search for “growing your greens best seed catalogs” and you’ll find it. If you’re outside the US, some of them won’t send to you. Baker Street Seeds (rareseeds*com does).

  4. You might google for “seed savers exchange” or “trade seeds” in your area.

  5. What kind of greenhouse is this John? I am very interested in one for our darn here in Hawaii! :)

  12. Loved your “neighborly” approach for this. You’re a cutie, thanks for the videos!

  13. I would put a camera or a fake focused on the garden and tell the neighbor I’m documenting the process for a video. No one wants to be on vid red handed.

  15. Hi John, I have all kinds of stuff growing in my yard, dandelions, little flowers and what they call wild strawberries. Is it okay to use all the little stuff in your grass clippings in your yard for compost? I don’t have a all grass yard lol I have all kinds of different stuff growing in my yard and not sure if anything would be bad. Don’t want to poison the compost in any way. Thanks for your time. love the vids. I have learned so much from you. Keep up the awesome work.

    About the lawn clippings with chemical ferts, Make sure they do not use a weed killer. The weed killers like Weed and Feed are designed to kill broad leaf plants. Which mean they kill anything that is not a GRASS

  19. I have stinging nettle.Hurts for hours after you touch it.

  20. i give my neighbor plants all the time!!!! and strawberries to !

  21. …..

  22. Do what now??

  23. My neighbour is mean! But his advice is great and definitely appreciated! Thanks John!

  24. Wow your a mean neighbor?lol. around here we shoot thieves and trespassers. Now with a neighbor i would probley use salt shot, a painful deterrent but not fatal. Or maybe a big guard dog.

  25. stinging nettles…diabolic, john..diabolic
