    If you go North-South, your shorter plants to the west of the taller ones will be shaded in the morning, and the ones on the east will be shaded in the evening.

    Loved your show, but there is one thing that just doesn't make sense to me, and yet all gardeners say it and that is.. "Not to plant the same thing in the same areas as the year before."

    Hi Brandon from CA,
    I'm curious what the reasoning is behind not using steer manure in clay soil in an organic garden?
    I've never heard that before. Here in California it's a common practice to use mulched manure (usually baked I believe too if store-bought).
    I use both sore bought steer manure & a bit of redwood compost tilled in.

    The weather was awful here as well earlier on, so I didn't start my garden until just before sumer started. We had alternating cold/hot temperatures, this it was difficult to tell when to plant.

    I'm still going to plant more as I did use some older seed & have a few bare spots in my rows & some seeds that were just slow to start (mostly varieties of tomatoes that are new to me.)

    As for the yellow pear tomatoes, I love eating them as snacks & they are usually extremely prolific. My kids used to have a huge bowl of them they ate like popcorn while watching TV. They are sweet & in salads can be bland, but by themselves, they are great! (More of a dessert tomato)

    Very curious about the nix on steer manure, especially in a clay soul that could use the organic material.

    I grew up when chemical gardening had just taken off, but was never that happy with the subtle chemical taste (in melons, not so subtle… I thought they tasted terrible), so I always stuck with organic.

    Enjoying your videos! Hoping you'll try some steer manure & redwood compost in your garden… you may rival your grandpa's garden! (I hope he gets better soon).

    I used to soil test my gardens for natural amendments , now do it by look & feel as soil can change with erosion, weather, etc.

    Just seeing your soil, I'd add about 1-3" deep steer with a sprinkle of redwood compost (too much can wick the water out of your soil!)

    You might give it a try, mixed with your soil at say 1, 2 &3" of steer with the same seed, light & water conditions to see what works best (or you can soil test too & look up the organic materials that give you what you need.)

    Good gardening!?
