  • pariapsara 1 year ago

    Where there is a will there is a way. If people love gardening and want to grow stuff, no matter how limited the space they can grow plants and veggies.

    Very helpful thanks! live in Ky, so got to do the mix based on plants. Watched celery likes moist soil. Live in an apt. so going to do some pvc across backporch for strawberries, maybe crates, or buckets or bags, or mix and match. want to do some celery, strawberries, romaine & red lettuce, spinach, carrots, maybe few pepper but very few only for garden fresh salsa. some herbs, Zuchinni in front, does well there, tomatoes here and there, got the early girl not sure to use stakes or cages. stakes might look good but not sure if I can do it right. but stakes cost less.
    so.. can do about 40-50 ft of pcv. got to watch more videos to decide what will do better where. would like to do cantelope, cucumbers… watermelon would be fun but don't know how to pull that off vertically.
    but any who thank you.. for the video. have a nice day!

    What is the best way to water these raised vegetable beds on a drip system: How much water, how long and how often?

  • Leo Ortega 1 year ago

    Been watching a lot of your videos John. I am learning too. Thanks! Just wanted to say that I am making two raised beds for my backyard and found that Kelloggs Raised Bed & Potting Mix has most of what you recommend in it. It is a dollar more for the 3cf bag vs the Kelloggs Natural Garden Soil you used in the video, but you do not have to buy perlite, peat moss, or other additives other than the rock dust your recommend. I actually saved money on the second bed where I used Kelloggs Raised Bed & Potting Mix. BTW… It is OMRI as well. Now to find that rock dust….

    IMO, cedar makes for a better raised bed because it weathers well and won't rot. Which means you'd get many more growing seasons for the money!

  • Sassy Frassy 1 year ago

    Yes, home depot is far cheaper than lowes, pretty much on everything! Every time I've bought soil from walmart, it's had mold in it due to the soil not being under a roof.

    Sadly, Las Vegas means the fertile plains. But, then again, the Mormon God is said to be 6'1" and lives on a planet NASA has yet to discover. Are you counting cards? Stick to the slots!

    good video, like it so much

    When you wrap teflon tape around pipe threads, do not do it as shown in this video,
    because there is a better way. The difference is how the tape stays tensioned during wraping. Place the roll above the threads with the tape coming off the roll on the bottom of the roll towards you. Then rotate the roll clockwise around the threads. Try it, you will soon see what I am saying.

    Do not have the tape coming off the top of the tape roll toward you, as you wrap clockwise, because you then have to pull the tape to keep it tensioned as you wrap.

    Try both ways and you will see what I mean.

    Unrelated but of course you wrap such that screwing on the fitting goes with the tape, rather than exerting a force to unwind it.

    Until you examine what I am saying, you will by nature tend not to follow this method of wrapping, but once you get it, you will find yourself always doing it the better but less intuitive way. It really does make the simple task of wrapping threads with teflon tape easier and tighter and you will always wrap in the right direction too.

    It is about how the tape stays tensioned as you wrap, instead of coming off the roll faster than the thread wrapping uses it.
