  1. i think he means it seems like you might be over complicating the process a
    bit. i kinda feel the same, i know it takes a bit of work to start a
    garden, but it does seem like you are taking it to the very extreme. good
    video otherwise, good info also

    The reason we suggest what we suggest is that it is much easier to maintain
    and you will have a much more successful garden if you put in some extra
    work in the beginning. You don’t HAVE to start this way you can do more or
    less, but we felt this was a good level to teach so that people will have a
    better chance of a successful first garden rather than a frustrating one.

  4. You are like the Martha Stewart of gardening. I can’t be doing all this
    stuff hahahh.

    No, not at all. You might want to do narrower beds right up against the
    house that you can reach across from one side or you can make a path
    between the house and the first bed. The house, especially on the south
    side will actually make your garden a bit warmer which may allow you to
    plant your warm season veggies a little earlier than otherwise.

    @o00oZu1o00o Great amendments to start with for sure! As they say,
    “Whatever is wrong with your soil, compost will help.”

  9. Will you be getting the Violette de Bordeaux fig tree again? Can the Turkey
    fig tree be planted in a container? This is an excellent video!

    I’m sorry you feel that way. Could you be more specific as to how we could
    improve it?

  11. These videos are awesome and inspiring and your catalog is gardening porn!

  12. Cool!!!

  13. for what’s the straw? for cleaning?

  14. GrowOrganic Peaceful Valley Reply December 25, 2013 at 4:17 am

    I agree! The only “chemicals” we used were cold processed kelp extract and
    liquified fish.

  15. I like the landscape from this garden, where was this filmed?

    Gardening early is a lot of fun! We have a video coming up in the next
    couple of weeks that features a fun garden project to do with children.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    @pufferfish0567 Thanks! We’re glad you like the videos and the catalogs.
    Happy Gardening.

  18. Thanks! I am starting a small garden in my back yard this Spring and this
    was a perfect video for me. Now all you need is a couple of bee hives to
    pollinate your plants.

    The rice straw over cardboard is for weed suppression in the paths.

    This was filmed in Nevada City, California. A really beautiful town, it
    used to be called the “Queen of the Northern Mines.”

  21. Can you make Video about Children Garden Because I want My Little Brothers
    to get into gardening Early!! :)

    @7llazaren Awesome! That’s so exciting! Sometimes when people are starting
    a lot of raised beds they cover crop a few of them with a plant blend that
    puts nitrogen into the soil to save money on fertilizer. Another popular
    thing is to plant a bed with a mix like Good Bug Blend to attract
    beneficial insects for pest control help and pollination.

  23. Great videos these videos are very helpful they’re very informative they’re
    really recorded well and I appreciate you posting them for such a great
    contribution to help people learn how to garden and grow organic thank you
    so much for for putting these on the Internet

    @isabstmr As far as I know we will be getting Violette de Bordeaux next
    year too, crop permitting. Yes, standard sized fig trees can be grown in
    containers. Turkey should do just fine, the only one’s I’ve seen that are
    not recommended are Black Mission and LSU Purple.

  25. First time veggie gardner…put in 5- 8′by 4′ raised beds in my back
    yard…….Im so excited….
