    for the last two years had major issues with the grasshoppers!

  2. what happens when you get to the heat of summer? do you just let them die
    or is there a way to make it to fall?

    have a Pecan Tree!!

    lot of different variety lettuce for this season.

  10. Hi Brandon , are you going to cover them for the next 3 nights since we

    advice. Thanks,

    check out my previous video on soil testing…I use fertilizer that my soil
    needs based on my soil test.

  13. Yeah, this crazy N. Texas weather. Despite the frosty setbacks, everything
    still looks pretty good. The Onions look Great!

  14. Awesome garden. No offense; pull the soil away from the onion bulbs for
    bigger vegetables according to Kitchen Garden magazine and experience.
    Terrific job!

  15. Nice garden! I just started gardening myself. I have a medium size cinder
    block garden. I put the materiel on the bottom before I added my dirt to
    prevent grass and weeds. I suppose some weed seeds could blow into it
    though? I am in Texas also, zone 9 here on the coast.

    Well it’s not freezing here in Dallas. If it is freezing temp or close
    …cover them. If it is close to freezing and no wind or clouds then maybe
    a frost. Good Luck!

  17. Brandon, your garden is amazing. I live in your vicinity. Where do you get
    your compost, and what do you use to fertilize?

  18. Hi , your garden looks so nice, what kind of fertilizer do you use? thanks

  19. You have a great garden. I really enjoyed you video. Thanks for sharing

    So much going on in your garden! It is really exciting – the asparagus
    looks absolutely delicious! Very envious.

  21. Greatgarden wish u a great harvest :)

  22. Wo! I’m in northern IN and it snowed yesterday!!! Just now getting my
    gardens ready to even plant!

  23. Finally reaping your rewards. Your fence is up, the vegetable/fruit variety
    planted. Nice job. Are you going to add any fruit trees to your plan?
    Continued success!

    I’m down here in FL. Got the taters, onions, collards and stuff planted.
    The potatoes froze back and came back up again. The collards weren’t
    affected at all and the chickens buried almost all of my onions and I can’t
    find them, LOL. I’ve been doing Back to Eden. They tilled up the mulch and
    ate half of my collards, all of my tomatoes and some of my broccoli.
    Replanted some stuff and it’s doing great!
