    Got a video on my channel where a Hydroponic system can grow over 800 plants in a 12 foot by 1 foot by 6 foot high area using PVC pipe.. It can be made for around $300.00

    Hey John when do you think the best time to put my seedlings that I've been growing indoors outside in the raised bed is I live in Phoenix Arizona so it gets really hot like you out in Vegas? Thanks.

    Hi, what is the best source for organic, non-GMO wheat grass seeds? There are a lot of sellers out there and it's difficult to… weed through…. (see what I did there?) them all. Cheers
