  1. @Involved6 …You’re welcome, glad you enjoy the videos……Donald

  2. Thank you, sir. Loving your videos and your informative but laid-back style.

  3. @spyman0071 …Germination rates usually run about 80% so to make sure I’d have at least one to come up…..Donald

  4. Why did you put three seeds on top as opposed to just one?

  5. @alicetheDroog …Each time I’ve had plants “dampen off” was a results of too much watering which promotes it. I was extra careful with watering this year and have not had that problem. Good luck with school……Donald

  6. I’m in trade school for gardening, so I’ve heard many techniques for seed starting; but yours was new to me. Great vid!

    ..but I’m pretty sure damping off refers to a fungus such as mold attacking the seedlings. You’re only describing a symptom.

  7. @fkelly84 … bring the plants outside for a couple of hours the first day and increase that time over about 5-7 days. That should harden them off just fine……Donald

  8. what on-off light schedule do you put vegetables on before going outside? does it matter?

  9. @rayvt1 … Hey Ray, sounds like you have a real nice setup there in Texas. We’ve been getting steady rains so the garden here is wet which means I can do very little out there now. I should be starting my tomatoes, peppers and eggplant inside in the next couple of weeks so you should see a gardening video next month. Check out my garden Calendar on the web site. Getting tired of shooting videos in the house. lol…..Donald

  10. Donald, we moved down here to the Wills Point, TX area from NE Nevada where our growing season was very short. We have about 7 acres of decent flat, fertile ground with a full stock pond. Have tilled up about 1 acre so far. I truly appreciate your very informative and very usable information Your going to be our gardening bible especially as we have similar growing conditions…Will watch with anticipation for any of your 2011 videos. Thanks Ray

  21. How laid back is this man??!!……That wonderful s..l..o..w.. d..r..a..w..l. he has. He’s a pleasure to listen to. Enjoyed every minute. And great information toboot. Loved it.

  22. @YourGardenShow … not quite sure why the one without glue would be better. When possible I try to remove most of the peat pot before planting…… Donald

  23. Quick question: Have you ever used the peat pots made without glue? I think they are a few pennies more but the root balls are better formed. the BugLady told me about them.

  24. @YourGardenShow … thanks…. Donald

  25. Great video.
