    Check the March update video I just put up. Thanks for the comments!

  3. oh my gosh! I am sooo inspired! Thank you so much for all of your wonderful information – my husband and I are getting to put in our spring garden, we are in zone 8b and are planting peas, lettuce, and onions in the ground and parsnips, carrots and potatoes in grow bags- do you have any suggestions for growing in bags? do you dust your cut seed potatoes in sulfur? also, I noticed that you planted peas & beans at the same time- u thought you had to wait until May for the beans. Thanks again!

    Thanks for asking. Soil is mostly from my compost bins but you can get away with a lot of soil types. Even poor soil can be worked and made better. Fertilizer, I like aged chicken manure. Cheap, about $3 at O.S.H. Seeds, well I save a lot of my seeds from previous years but any good quality seed will work from the nursery but I try to buy seeds that are not geneticly modified seed stock. Try trading with others!

    Radish plants are one of the fastest sprouting in the vegetable garden. And you are right about the leaves, you can start eating them in just a few weeks!

    Just spreading the word towards an attitude of self sufficiency–if that is even possible these days. Thanks

    I hope my videos inspire you to try it yourself. Thank you

    Doing these videos has become a bit of a game for me. My intent is really to help inspire people to get out and try it for themselves. Dirt therapy is powerful stuff!

    Thank you

    I’m really trying to inspire folks to just try it. Even if you don’t have room for a “real” vegetable garden, you can always find room for some potted plants.

    Thank you, but really, anyone can do it. The term “green thumb” only means that you pay attention and keep at it

    Northern California, Santa Cruz Mountains. Not hot, but we do have weeks that stay in the low 90′s. If your climate is hot, be sure to mulch your pots and water them more often. Potted plants will dry out quickly.
