    Hi John, Great video. It answered the questions I was needing to know. Particularly about your approach to fruit trees. I just planted 3 figs trees and two lemon trees all in 15 gallon pots.

    In this area the crops that do the best are weeds. Most taste bitter but with enough butter and beer they go down fine. The secret is butter though. Not margerine

    Hi John, I recently posted a picture of my moringa on I want more Moringa Facebook Channel and I live here in Glendale Arizona. I was gifted this moringa tree. I chose the wrong spot and it gets a little too much shade I think but it has never gotten huge it's been in the ground for almost 3 years and I have eaten most of the leaves off of it every year the first winter I thought it was dead but Dave Stone of I want more Moringa suggested that I just keep watering it and giving it nutrients which I did and late spring last year up came to shoots from The Roots which have grown 2 about 6 foot tall then I cut it down last fall and this spring it grew one side two about four foot in the other side about 6 foot this is the first year that it has gotten any flowers or pods. Laughingly it has three pods which I had to eat one when it was about 6 in Long it was so tender with an earthy peppery taste I loved it one pod a family member ate. The pod I left to grow in about a month and a half it is approximately 1 foot long and as big around as any of them that I have seen it's very nice sized easily called a drumstick. Just hoping this will hang on throughout the summer until it dries out hoping for seeds. I have thought about moving it to a sunnier spot but I think I'm just going to plant some seeds and put them in the sunny or spot and see how I do. I do love your videos and I have learned so much over the years from you. I am a really slow starter but finally I'm on my way. hopefully I will finish out like a tortoise have a great Fourth of July John thank you so much for all that you share.

    Wall trellis is nice. My bet with AquaJet from early videos was that it was not gonna b quite successful cuz it was unnatural to have water shoot like jets at the roots of plants. Not to mention that water will favor gravity to go south more then upwards which could pose an issue keeping young plants alive that need that moisture at the very top lvl.

    Hey John I live out here in Boulder City. I have a wicked bad problem with rolly pollies. Do you just put out rhines and wait for them to swarm and then kill em all, and do that over and over?

I wish he socialized online though, it would be more educational getting into more questions, and it would make more videos . Gluck John , you're definitely the best on YouTube!!!

    Just to let you know, Starting yesterday, In Florida anybody can grow a garden in the front yard without the city and county saying anything,, all their ordinances stopping people is no longer any good of course it does not apply to people living

    Thank you for your videos John. This is my first year growing and it has greatly been influenced by your channel. I'm in Reno NV so the desert growing is totally applicable. My garden is getting killed with pests though hahaha
