    It sounds naturally efficient! How long does it take to re-transform your
    raised bed into a permaculture type? We all knew the fact that this method
    will surely benefit the growth and production of our crops. I am thankful
    for sharing this post! 

  2. Could not hear even with earphones unfortunately :(

  3. Me again. Just discovered I could not hear when viewing on my virtual
    windows on my iMac. When I shut it down and tried in Safari I got a blank
    video screen (on You Tube) with a a notice, ‘plugin blocked’. Apparently
    Apple have blocked all older versions of Flash during an update and you
    need to download the newest version. Once I did this I could view the
    videos in Safari and hear the videos when viewing in my virtual windows
    program. My PC was not affected. Maybe this is what you need to try.

  4. What is a Permaculture bed?

  5. thanks for taking the time ……very helpful…..good luck with your

  6. Shotgun, pistols, bow and arrow. They get veggies and you get some meat.

  7. was it straw or hay and can you purchase this by the bag at a feed store?

  8. Add like three chickens to your yard maybe. They really add manure and eggs
    to your table. Sometimes the garden is just there and nothing to do much of
    and the birds lay each day bringing you to the yard. They also like all the
    scraps from the garden. Start with three. They really feed you and make
    your garden a better place and are easy to care for.

  9. Glad it helped. This also works if the volume of a video is, on the other
    hand, too “loud” to begin with (thereby bringing the voume “down” to CD
    audio standard). For tips like that, I totally recommend Computeractive’s
    website. They also sell a magazine in the newsagents for about 2 pounds or
    so. I cannot remember the price exactly as I haven’t bought it in a while.
    Whatever the price, they often give away free software and guides written
    in plain english good for experienced or beginner users.

  10. 1The sound problem comes from the recording and editing, before it was
    uploaded to Youtube – you should be able to change it with the software you
    used to edit it otherwise you’ll just have to get closer to the mic and
    speak louder when you’re recording. I have big speakers and was able to
    turn the volume up high but many people use poor quality laptop speakers
    and people on portable devices won’t hear a thing – however the video is
    otherwise great so it’s only one small problem to fix.

  11. can hardly hear you

    Hi Potteryworks, read the info below the video, it will take you to an
    audio adjusted version of the same one… thanks for popping by.

  13. I hear you perfectly, although the voice is low, never mind. The raised
    beds look great and I’m looking into the alfalfa plant as I see a lot of
    people using it. Thanks a lot for the advise.

  14. Thanks for this Laurence. As for your “rant” it must be the most polite,
    mild-mannered rant I have ever heard lol. Do you use or have you
    experimented with green manures? One thing permaculturists do seem to be
    very keen on is NO bare soil. If no green manures do you use any other form
    of mulch? As for the volume it is low but fine with earphones. :)

  15. To ensure your sound is at a volume everybody can hear, no matter their
    computer or equipment, the simple way to prevent problems is to set the
    sound to the industry standard volume for Audio CD players. This is called
    “normalising” (or “normalize”). If you export the audio of your video by
    saving it as a “Wav” file, you can load that into Audacity (free software
    found online). Look for the “normalize” option to click in the menus. Then
    save the wav again and drag drop it into your video editor.

  16. Nice video. I am currently constructing my first raised bed and was looking
    for ideas. Thanks.

  17. What can’t hear a word ! Looked like a good video

    Hi Stacey, thanks for your kind words. Fortunately I don’t have deer
    problems, must be really frustrating. Have you found anything that works to
    keep them out?

    This is second video I have tried. Could not hear this one either. I will
    not be trying anymore. That is a shame. I liked the way it looked.

  20. Please set your hearing aid to full power before pressing play
