  1. Great video John. 

  2. Container gardening can be quite a bit of fun. Much easier to concentrate
    the nutrients to the plants.

  3. 8:14 is that a pair of dead rats to the left of him?

  4. I just love my container garden. It really is amazing how much one can grow
    in containers. So nice to have fresh herbs and citrus trees around for

    1:10 … YES, the industrial food system exists for one reason, to make
    money, to make money for people who already have money and want control
    over all of us, and many of them do not care at all about what they do to
    get that money. They don’t care about creating nutritious food, they just
    want to lie and fool us into perceiving value where there is none to
    impoverish us in every way. The capitalist system cannot exist when it is
    run in this mode, it is simply warfare and genocide.

  12. Thank you for the tour!

  13. Awesome. Keep these coming John : )

  14. Thanks to you I started a container garden here in south Florida and
    growing here is incredible! If you don’t use seeds and end up buying
    something small like a starter plant at $3.00 they still output more and
    taste better compared that $5 bag of “fancy” (old) lettuce at the

  15. Nothing beats HOME GROWN. You should be very proud of yourself, John. You
    have inspired thousands of people to start ‘growing your greens’. I always
    seem to leave your channel learning something new. Azomite has been one
    of the soil amendments that you have turned me on to, along with Sea-90.
    Thank you for the field trip. Smiles, Lark

    I love Living in Fla or as I like to call it the just add water state .

  18. Lol, His body language when he says, “I smoke one cigarette a day”, I’m no
    lie detection expert, but that’s a doozie

    How can I keep rabbits and rats from eating my greens out of the pots?

  20. I garden exclusively with fabric pots. They are great but need extra water
    in the summer. 

  21. Best video yet john! Very inspiring

  22. I was there a few weeks ago looking through the fence! Fort Lauderdale
    people rock! That garden looks ten times better in person. Made me hungry
    just looking at it. Thanks John for showing our city’s finest downtown

  23. That rebar and filter fabric on PVC is a great idea. Very creative folks
    here… nice segment… thanks… Keep on growin…


  24. Yeah John! You are my favorite vegan guru man! You teach me so much every
    week man!
