    Buys treated 2×6's to make the walls of his plant boxes.
    Spends 2 thousand to test water treatment options.
    Uses the finest quality hardware to make greenhouses anyone else would use scrap or make-shift to accomplish.
    Makes more money than an average American but goes through all the trouble to grow his own food with the finest material known to man to save money and do it his self.
    He could simply buy enough MRE's to last a lifetime for what he paid to test/create all this.
    Idiocy at it's best

    Thanks for the tips. I'm in the process of converting my beds to the Mittleider method.

    CONTINUED… If you spend a lot of money and at least three years you can build a big enough soil food web for your garden. With Mittleider there is no web. The plants get their food directly from the weekly feed. It is very inexpensive and your garden will flourish the first year and every year after.

    This is all about the "Soil Food Web". I was a dedicated student of this. Until I found it wasn't practical. He explains it is a chain. He is right. But if one link is missing the chain doesn't work. Not enough water, warmth, air or wrong pH the chain breaks (bacteria die) and your plants can't get the nutrients locked in the soil. Why would you risk your success on a complex uncontrollable web of possible disaster? CONTINUED…

    I thought I would pass this along in case you were interested in soil health. Check out this channel (MycorrhizalAppl) and watch the soil seminar published 1-15-13, Peace

    I should have harvested the outer leaves before they turned yellow. I am letting the plants continue to grow more leave so we have more to eat. If I harvested the entire plant we couldn't eat it before it went bad. I like to harvest what we can eat in a couple of days. That way it is fresher.

    They are all full sized trees. I'll prune them so they don't grow more than 10' tall. They all bore fruit the first year however I removed the fruit so the tree's energy would be used in growing roots and the tree. The second year I did leave some fruit on which we picked and enjoyed. The third year I pruned heavily but still got a lot of fruit.

    hello
    I love your videos. But I understand you grow fruit trees, when did you first get fruit from your trees. Are they dwarf or are they semi-dwarf trees. Do you enjoy the fruit from the.? trees. What were some of the challenges that you came across when growing your own fruit trees?

    Also, you can harvest the outer leaves and let the inner ones grow bigger. Sorry about the separated comments. I am using a iPad..

  • 95gardener 2 years ago

    Why do you prune your book choy? You can take the outer leaves off the plants to eat before it turns yellow. Your book choy tastes better when it is young and tender. We Chinese harvest it at the stage of yours.

    Christschool, why do you say washing the leaves in colloidal silver is a bad idea?

  • christschool 2 years ago

    These plants would normally be chewed on by wildlife (i.e. deer etc.) so it's ok to prune them because that is what happens in nature. In our curated gardens, natural "predators" are non existent so we have to be those predators in terms of pruning.
