    Hey John you in Las Vegas fulltime now? Man, I wanted to visit my humble garden here in SF bay area.

    Awesome. There's a compost facility in Norman, OK close to where I live. 10$ a truck load. I still add imputes, but it helps a lot in volume for raised beds.

  • joemygawd 3 months ago

    John, Do you know of a place like this in the Northern Sacramento Area?

  • americanwillow 3 months ago

    Whoa! The MJ mix has really good results. The brussel sprouts have very big leaves. Those would be some fantastic eating!

    Las vegas company that makes their own compost. I like it better than viragrow; the compost has a better decomposition on it.

    Hey what's up ? love your channel And all the knowledge that you have to offer .Do you have any sees I can grow in South Florida

  • Gillenz Fluff 3 months ago

    So they make crap compost then add fertilizers that's commercial windrow compost for you, and people say the soil in their gardens are contaminated then buy this shit with biosolids which is human shit mixed with bleach and whatever else people dump down drains lol.

  • zemadeiran 3 months ago

    John, with all due respect none of that is soil by any stretch of the imagination

    Call it what it is, compost which should be used as an amendment to the native soil in order to increase it's organic matter

    Compost as an amendment can provide an initial kick start for the soil food web while not forgetting to add clay also

  • Gillenz Fluff 3 months ago

    That gs compost looks like the crap I got from Lidls they called it soil conditioner it was supposed to be yard waste but it had chipboard from old kitchens and I even found some silicone that had solidified in the plastic nozzle.
    I would recommend staying away from that junk.
    All commercial windrow made multipurpose compost is absolutely rubbish and devoid of nutrients.

  • lallydnay 3 months ago

    Lol! I’ve been in Vegas for awhile…. i agree, soil is HARD to get here. I’ll have to send you a guy’s info…. he makes compost in his backyard. It’s amazing! He also sells seedlings.

    I live seventy (70) mies from Vegas, but was going to go to the Sonoma Soil place, and now you’re saying Houston has the best soil?
    I love your show.
    Thank you
    I also called John Rose and intend to get that juicer as well.

    Please remember that for every vegitable there is a hungry critter. Implementing a defense to prevent said critter from getting into your garden will go a long way towards a successful harvest.

  • Breanna Sproule 3 months ago

    My tip is don't overdo it the first year. Start small and work your way up.

  • Tessa Silberbauer 3 months ago

    Try to balance veg you love, veg that's expensive at the market, and veg that has a short harvest time. Onions, parsnips and other slow-growing or slow-germination veg are difficult to keep a beginner inspired while they wait. A splurge of zucchini is nothing but trouble if your tastebuds (or your kids') detest them 🙂

  • Mark Ridgewood 3 months ago

    I try to grow one new vegetable each year that I have never eaten just for the fun of it.
    You never know you may like it.
