    Keep going, dude.

  3. Do you know where I can get tree kale or tree collards? I live in AL and

    I know it as Jew’s mallow……it makes a great arabic slimy soup.

  5. You’re an inspiration. Do you compost?

    @Niffer58 posted: Thank you that is exactly the reason i picked heirloom
    tomatos.. not sure how much lettuce i will get out of what i did.
    unfortunatly i can’t realistically do raised beds but we are doing mostly
    pots. do you have any idea’s on how to make a temporary bed that is easy
    easy to move if we move without ruining the plants? any idea’s?

    How using a childs swimming pool (plastic type) it can be moved easily.
    Think of it as a large pot. Put some holes in it for drainage.

  8. You are a great inspiration, John. Thanks for sharing all of your time and
    videos to the public.

  9. Awesome, John, totally agree, abundance is the way to go! Thanks for
    reminding me!

    Yes! I wish I generated enough compost to fill all my raised beds, but I do
    not generate that much compost. Compost is an integral part of my approach
    to growing food.

  12. That’s great. I just started composting with worms. I am a senior in
    college and hope to start working a plot of land in the fall. I volunteered
    last summer on an organic homestead and am enthralled with organic
    vegetable growing. How do you keep pests from his crops? Is it just by
    planting companion plants such as flowers and herbs to confuse the senses
    of the insects? Thanks, and keeping doing what you’re doing. Amazing

  13. Lettuce grows good in hydroponic systems. There are easy set ups that i
    wiould like to get into too

  14. The garden looks great…as usual

  15. Speaking of grazing! Have you tried Radish pods? Last year was my first
    year garden, and I tried growing radishes, but they SUCKED!!! So I left
    them so the bees could have the flowers. One day I was wondering the garden
    and noticed that seed pods were developing on the radishes. I figured, what
    the heck, won’t know how it tastes unless ya take a bite… lets just say,
    there will be radishes again in my garden!!! The pods were THAT GOOD!!!

  16. Nice! this was a good episode lotsa info :)

  17. I love that you put your garden in your front yard. I am fortunate that I
    have a very large back yard and have over the last three years put in a
    total of 12 beds ala square foot gardening style and we are adding 7 more
    this year. You can see them on my channel. Are you a raw foodie? I think I
    saw you on Kevin Gianni’s show once. I definitely think more people should
    grow their own food, it will save the world! Thanks so much for sharing
    your great garden! Noreen

  18. I wondered how you keep the bugs off you kale. We planted so much last year
    here in Canada, and the bugs ate them right down! They looked like
    skeletons. I was so disappointed. I am planting some stuff today!

  19. Oh Im gonna make the kids upset!! The pool Idea is a PLAN!!
