    Hey man, would love to see an update video of your son's garden!

    I'd like to get a raised bed started. My problem is that it will be placed on rock. I live in France in a very rocky region. I'll bee recycling the soil fro
    Plots plus composts. How deep does it have to be do you think? I'm going to create it with the rocks and stones on
    My property. The depth will be created by the stone " wall".
    Thanks again and keep on posting such interesting videos,

    So much interesting info. I failed last year, so this year I planted in fabric bags & so far I've got enough squash to feed 2 adults every night of the week! My soil is hard & red from the native oak trees. Nothing grows in it. I also enjoyed the 13 minute ad from Fender! It was fun to remember my days in the music world.

    Based on the orientation that you laid out in the video it sounds like you are planting on the north side against the shed and near a fence on the eastern side with trees on both east and west side of the house. Is that really enough sun? If my orientation is correct that will be pretty limited sunlight since you are getting shaded by the shed on the south. On the eastern side you're getting shaded by the fence and you'll be missing out on the pleasant cool sunrise sun. Probably the best sunlight would be in the middle of the yard…..

    A question for anybody… how many artichoke plants could you fit into a 4 x 4 raised bed?

    Beautiful little garden space but what about soil loss where the stones dont meet up? I hope you do an update video to show the results in a few weeks or so.

    People if you want organic fertiliser , don’t jump on the band wagon of buying garbage fertiliser , use your own and eat healthy plants instead of chemical modernised poison in your food. Your choice.

    I got my transplants cheaper, I have a few Amish Greenhouses paid 1.75. Price reduce.
    Using oregano, cilantro, Italian Parsley as animals an bugs stay away. Anything pungent.
    For Deer, chop up Irish Spring soap, zip lock sandwich bags w/ small holes, so the scent gets out. Deer have sensitive noses.

    Thanks for another great video Gary. Typical Tennessee soil, heavy and rocky!

  • Tim Sheets 1 year ago

    I always have a terrible time trying to start herb seeds. I haven't tried direct sowing, though. I just always cave in and buy the transplants.

  • TMF J 1 year ago

    Looks great! Thanks for the info. Always helpful.

    Super video. I can’t do raised beds because I have Bermuda grass. I’ve tried covering it with cardboard but the grass just won’t die. And you can’t get rid of Bermuda grass unless you spray with roundup. And I don’t like to use chemicals in my yard. So I do my garden in containers.
