  1. THIS GUYS AWSOME! :) )

  2. This garden is also for cold states, the plastic covers are really only for when it gets cold (winter or even night as in dessert locations it gets cold at night). Hope that made sense and helps.

  3. The Coffee and water mixture is also great for FUNGUS GNATS and many other pests. Try it especially if you have Fungus Gnats.

  4. Smooth John, Smooth.

    I did that once John. I used a tent and two flimsy arches to create a gazebo greenhouse. I hung Christmas lights inside. All my plants survived the winter. I was so happy I didn’t have to buy more plants the following year.

  9. This looks like an expensive maintenance garden. not sure she is saving any money. 30 bucks for a pot will take ten years to recover the costs in food savings.

    Hey John have you ever grown Lingonberries? After seeing your video with the Guava’s I was kinda looking into the different type of berries and its quite an adventure looking at all the different kind. Thanks in advance.

  23. :) John’s a great guy…

  24. I am sorry to tell you that the cockroaches here in Israel can climb out of a trap like that. Sigh!
    They say that cockroaches will inherit the Earth. They seem to be able to adapt to almost anything.
