    using a bucket is a good idea. Imagine using a 55 gal drum with the same
    drip system?

  • zekehooper 2 years ago

    Rent a tuck or minivan next time so you can get more plants.

  • boyonstilts3121 2 years ago

    wow, all those creative ways of growing in urban environments are amazing.

    Isn’t that Budda’s Hand AKA Citron? That’s edible:)

  • zekehooper 2 years ago

    That’s funny, I just saw where there was a 55 gal. drip system. I like the
    idea of useing the kiddy pools for a raised bed.

    Love this video John…I appreciate all the info you share!

    Vines & taller plants placed to the north of other planting areas will cast
    very little shade on plants to the south of them.

    hi John, how do you fertilize and add rock dust to your tree collards? I
    planted mine with plenty of compost and rock dust, but what do you
    recommend to keep them healthy and nourished as time goes by and they grow?
    Also, how big do you think the “trees” should be before I start harvesting
    leaves? Do you think you could do a video on how you propagate the tree
    collards?

    @JuicingMyLifeBack He talked about that a few episodes ago..

    Where do you get your seeds from?

  • ASFx2600 2 years ago

    Nice cilantro. Here in vegas I direct seeded my cilantro in the garden
    around september 15th, and it made a big mass of cilantro which survived
    the winter (some nights in the 20s), and it’s still going strong today. I
    expect it to last about 2 more months until it hits the 80s in may. I’m
    thinking about trying to dig up a clump and bring it in the house to see
    how long I can keep it going. Unlimited cilantro 8 months out of the year
    isn’t bad!

    Oh John I love it when you do long FREE videos!!!!

  • apensiil 2 years ago

    almost all cabbages, incl broccoli and cauliflower actually need mounding
    some time after planting. you almost can’t plant them deep enough at first
    and this should be done later. like a potatoes.

  • Simply Natural Homestead 2 years ago

    John, I’ve noticed before that you have beds in your front yard where you
    grow runner beans up woven wire fence panels, set up in so there is a back
    “wall” of trellis, with shorter “walls” of trellis coming out at a
    perpendicular angle. I was thinking that must create a lot of shade. Do the
    vines shade each other out? I’m trying to plan my garden space for this
    year, and I’m having trouble finding enough space for vining plants,
    without shading out the other crops.

    Awesome episode

  • crosspecans 2 years ago

    where do i get tree collards

  • therawlifefamily 2 years ago

    John, you can probably do espaliering of your tree collards against your
    fence, or just as good, you can do espalier plantings of fruit trees
    against your fences. Also, seeing your stuff growing makes me so sad, I had
    a frost down to 14F a few weeks ago and down to about 24 last week.

  • BikeManDan1 2 years ago

    Lookin good Spring has definitely sprung for us down here in Oakland.
    Aphids are out having a field day; they died during the cold spell but are
    back and I don’t think there are many predators yet. I’m going to try
    growing tree tomato this year from seed. Hopefully it will work out!

  • zardozica 2 years ago

    John, what percent of the food you grow do you juice versus eat as
    harvested? Also, what is a good juicer for juicing greens?

  • therawlifefamily 2 years ago

    John, have you considered growing some more deep root plants to bring up
    some of the nutrients from the bottom of your deep raised beds?
