    In the last 3 year since I moved in next door to my parents to help them with their small farm either myself or my Dad have committed most of these mistakes.
    I was not of aware of the too much nitrogen issue with root crops until now. But he makes a very rich soil mix for all the raised beds and this very well may be the issue. Our green beans are not producing and I had read that could be their issue as well.
    Thanks for this informative video. Back to the old drawing board.

    I like how your videos are short and factual (to the point) as many videos are so full of extra fluff or redundant information. Thank you. Very informative.

    Thank you now I know why our tomatoes keep getting blossom end rot!!! We go through so many eggs too, good think I finally started adding them to our compost a month ago! I will probably go get a fertilizer to get us by the next 5 months though.

    I have been gardening for many years and I have run into those issues in past but now for the fist time I am having an issue with wilting.  No matter how much I water some of my plants are wilting.  The other problem I am having this year is the size of my peppers they are very small this year.  I am in Massachusetts and we are in a medium drought so my usual watering habits are out the window.  If you can attack thee two issues  Id be grateful.  I like your videos.  You do a good job getting to the point and showing the problem thank you

    I saw a video where they used crushed tums dissolved in water for quick fix, but have not tried it.

    I live in Los Angeles and it gets really hot during the summer and have a hard time keeping the tomatoes alive. When I notice the burn marks on the actual tomato I bought shade fabric and all my plants seem to be doing much better. But since this is shade that just blocks the uv rays but let's some light through, is this enough for the summer. Is this adequate sunlight?

    It was really nice watching your video and seeing that your tips come from your real life experience. Many YouTube videos are full of "passed on" information, as opposed to actual personal experience. I enjoy your videos. I just wish we were in similar zones… (zone 5)

    do you have any upcoming videos of the watermelon plant which you had in video.
    I usualy buy seeds from sellers with similar climate. if you think seeds like blueprint of the plant
    i once tried buying seeds from India and China to grow Camellia sinensis and that proofs you can not grow it indoor in cold climate. none of them surived throw two months. i think its one plant i havent managed to grow. I live in Polar Zone.

    Irregular watering can cause blossom end rot.

  • Kristineh06 1 year ago

    My cucumbers would flowers but then the whole bulb including the flowers would break off. I've been trying to figure out what's causing it to do that.
