    John, it was almost impossible to understand what you were saying because other people were talking nearby. If you had a directional wireless microphone near your mouth, those folks would not be heard.

    If I had fire ants i'd boil hot water and pour over the mound of fire ants
    ,or buy pet bedding and pick out just the red cedar and place the red cedar out there the fire ants will eat and die.

    i'd use some salt and trow it around the plants on the ground.But not too much just in the area where I get snails.One time a year.

    Heading out to build one now! I picked up 4 great pallets in very good shape. Each pallet has a stamp on it. Be sure it says, "HT" which stands for heat treated and not chemically treated. Thanks for the videos!

    As others have pointed out, caution should be used when considering using pallets to grow food.  Some have been treated with toxic synthetic chemicals (to kill insects that might be hitching a ride, primarily).

    A lot of pallets are made of cottonwood or oak ….and very few are treated

    Won't the bug blaster, Neem, DE, etc harm or even kill your lady bugs?

    Hay John, five mins into this vid you talk about skewering slugs at night – I do this, works. But it's v.important to let everyone know… snails nurture their eggs – ie after each foraging they return to the eggs and slime them up (contains an inhibitor). So when you kill them the inhibitor is then not added so the eggs can hatch (not sure of the exact timing) but this means the new slugs hatch after their parent is killed. Meaning you need to be vigilant and continuing expecting small/young slugs shortly days after you originally killed the parent(s).

    I have fire ants in the garden they nearly killed my pumpkin seedling by either eating or building a mound at the roots. How do I get rid of them? I set up a borax/jelly bait board but idk hw well it's working.

    could buy lots of greens for what you spent on all that micro rhizae + worm casting crap.  Plants don't need all trace minerals, what plants evolved in that environment?  About none, especially cultivated crops – that should be hearty enough to survive in spare AND depleted soils.  You are breeding spoiled plants there, ones that can't survive the normal conditions of the wild – I don't think that's sustainable dude.

    Dr. Earth's fantastic "organic" snake oil compost blend packaging cost more then the dirt in the bag. Yes pick a good fertilizer, or make it yourself…but for fuck sake, don't buy some bull shit compost just because the packaging looks good or some ass hole tole you to buy it. I bet that bag of dirt cost $20 or more when you can make it for nothing or just a few bucks for a plastic tote.

    What a scam.. guy is just going through the whole store saying it's ALL good…half an hour and it's all stupid shit that everyone knows, for example 19:49 "all the nutrients are coming from your soil" sheesh, no shit.
    Half an hour and it's only after 20 minutes that it gets to the stupid pallet…
