    Thanks so much for this! I've lived in Harris County all my life and didn't even know I had this amazing resource available to me

    Awwww… when I saw Texas A&M, I thought you were here in College Station, where the main university campus is. Go back in July and see what's growing there…. or NOT growing in the heat! White buckets beat black planter buckets in the Texas heat… Maybe I'll do the 1/2 bucket thing this year. Maybe the plants will stay cooler with the bucket semi submerged in the garden bed.

    Hi, I enjoy your videos because you make gardening look so easy. I'm also glad to see that the spinach berries were safe for you to drink. You kind of had me worried there for a minute. Ha, ha.

    The bucket garden takes half the soil of what it would if it was full up to the buckets' level from wall to wall. Good hack to enable deeper rooted plants in a shallow garden!

  • barneyg0 1 year ago

    Instead of buckets, we use wood veneers. It allows for better drainage, the soil isn't as damp during the winter. During the summer, I'm expecting the soil to lose moisture and provide for greater aeration. I'm hoping this layering of soil conditions lends itself to greater bio-diversity within the soil … the wood veneer has already been colonised by fungi. It should last a year, maybe two.

    Hydroponics can be cheap and simple. Check out the Kratky method.

    I understand many people prefer not to grow in plastic tubs or use synthetic fertilizers, but cost doesn't have to be the reason to avoid hydroponics.

  • Constance Lovejoy 1 year ago

    My concern about the buckets is they are made of plastic. I would like to see buckets made from cardboard, bamboo or something else that will last for a season, decompose & enrich the soil. Raised buckets might be could in areas where gardens experience flooding & ponding

  • wwaxwork 1 year ago

    Would the buckets slow down the spread of root born bugs/diseases?

  • Anita Walters 1 year ago

    Why would you say it will last you a year if you don't even eat it very often? Don't grow it if you are so negative about the plant.

    i'm interested to know how you use garlic. I love to cook with it but i'm wondering how you use it without cooking.

  • Alice DB 1 year ago

    Garlic is food, just see how many different cultures around the world use plenty of garlic. If people don't like it, that is another thing, but garlic use in moderate amounts, it's wonderful food.

  • Mark ONeill 1 year ago

    he's bummed that it is not raining…. must not know a lot about growing anything.

  • casullarms1 1 year ago

    I was one of John's loyal followers until this video, i was really disappointed when I heard his views on garlic, he really didn't do his homework on the benefits of garlic. Blood brain barrier, ????? what a shame.

  • Miik Bram 1 year ago

    Hey John I love your videos but what you think about garlic is not true. A few years ago some scholars made up articles about how garlic kills brain cells but it was just a hoax.. Garlic is healthy and completely safe when paired with a healthy diet.
