    winter boredom has forced me to make an herb garden for my kitchen! It is a
    far cry from your big IBC setups +Rob Bob

    winter boredom has forced me to make an herb garden for my kitchen. 2 feet
    of snow, and -14*F, I could not go outside even if I wanted to :( so I
    guess it is inside for today!

    I have just found you in the last few days. I am greatly enjoying your
    vids. It is June 24, ’14. My tomatoes are doing great but the squash is a
    real dud this year. Put in 3 zucchini & 3 yellow crook-neck. one of the
    crook-neck got about a foot tall and just died. The Others did well having
    lots of blossoms……must have all been male because I haven’t gotten but
    about 10 squash off my plants. So sad! I have used the Miracle-Grow
    fertilizer that you connect to a water hose. I am getting lots of
    tomatoes. I planted 5-6 different types. I have sure learned a lot from the
    you tube garden videos. Next year I will be doing the things that I have
    learned like ways to prune. I am still trying to work my way through the
    vids you have here. Sure wish I had the area you do to plant a garden. My
    area is maybe 12 x 12 ft only and for tomatoes, basil (5) and squash and
    another area maybe 6 x 8 ft that I have bush beans, spinach, parsley.
    Thanks for doing this., Charlene

  4. Great way to pass some time during the winter, and will make a nice little
    herb garden.

  5. If I had to guess, that container looks like the *baby* of what we use for
    animal watering buckets around the homestead ;-) I hope your herb garden
    helps stave off the winter cold!

  6. Luke, liked your video, but you lost me when you said, “…..sometimes the
    post office doesn’t know how to handle things with care.”
    They’re supposed to know what’s in a small package? It’s not their job to
    know what’s in the package, it’s their job to deliver it. Maybe you bought
    dried out, crap seeds?…. maybe?

  7. Woop! Can’t wait to see them grow :) 

  8. LOL. What you said in the end, that’s what I say in the Summer Down here. I
    love winter. Sadly on Friday down here, we will be at a chilling 80
    degrees:( When it is cold at least you can put layers of cloths and warm
    up, Down here when it is hot it is illegal to get naked… Anyway Deep
    South Texas welcomes you with open arms:)

  9. You’re not the only one that’s worried about freezing your toes and fingers
    off Luke! Great video and well put together. Thanks for sharing brother.
    BTW, I’ve not told you but I love the new graphics! :-) 

  10. It’s not hard to lose track and order too many seeds, happens all the time
    to me.
    Take care Paul

    I live in florida and i hate the weather. No change of seasons whatsoever.
    Im only 17 though so i have to wait another year or so to go back up north

  12. Nice video, looking forward to planting a few herbs as well. Oh and I feel
    your pain as we are getting a pretty harsh winter too here in Montreal..
    hang tough.

  13. That’s crazy! In California we are getting 70 degree weather!

  14. Spring fever—I am already going nuts,great info on the herbs

  15. Look at the clarity of this video! AWESOME!

  16. bet it grows great , yeah here in texas i think we are about to start
    planting stuff, its in the 50s and 60s all this week , all the stores are
    getting plants in , all my onions and garlic are coming up 

  17. Ama*zon has a 14 gallon round galvanized steel tub for nineteen ninety
    seven US free s & h for prim3 members. Made by Behrens.

  18. Nice video Luke. Do you have a south facing window? Can this type of
    thing grow in an East or West window? I guess I can give it try and find
    out!

  19. I planted some herbs not long ago sadly I don’t have any real sun light :(
    but I planted seeds :)

  21. I have to plant some stuff soon too. I am going crazy. On a side note, the
    sound is such a great improvement. 

  22. Those mini gardens are a great idea. I might do one soon too. And thanks
    for the pumpkin seeds, I got them yesterday :-) 

  23. I actually got stranded in Chicago with no way to get out for at least
    another week because my flight got canceled due to the weather and I would
    not be able to get another one till the weather gets better. So I ended up
    driving all the way home to Southern California because I had to get out of
    the cold.

  24. Hi MIGardener,
    I tried to grow a herbgarden indoors, but the plants didn’t seem to do so
    well. Probably because of a lack of sunlight I have because of the
    neighboors trees… Do you know which herbs I can grow this way and are
    shade tollerant? Thanks a lot!
    P.S. The winter overhere in Europe is like autumn at the moment.
    Temperatures are unusually high for the time of the year.
