    Why do I grow my vegetables to eat? Because I don't want to eat them loaded with chemicals. Using that feeder is nothing better then go to any store and keep poisoning myself. Good luck with that!?

    A BIG hello from Texas, i live in Dallas… And i have been trying to figure out how to make my pepper fruit, i got the seeds out of a very hot pepper that i brought from Nepal. This is my second year trying, last year i had about three fruits…i saved the same plants and it looks like my plants are suffering!!! Temperatures are mostly three digits. I live on the third floor and my peppers are planted on pots. I have an emotional connection with the flavor of this specific pepper… I have a shade cloth installed… They kind of bloomed and all the flowers fell off.., my heart broke into pieces… I don't know what i can do to make them flower and fruit…i desperately need some advise from your fountain of knowledge. Please help. Help help help ?

    Whats the best way to determine I've watered enough Looking to set up a drip system on a timer . I live in Phoenix AZ. And every morning I get up my plants look very unhappy and I water them for about an hour and and again they look not so good come evening so i water again when the sun is going down and once i water them in 30 to 60 minutes they dont look wilted or as stressed .. so I'm going for drip as you explained but I dont want to over water or wast water. thanks :)?

    I have seen all kinds of additives for soil, however I have not seen any videos of how much this cost. Will you please let us know how much each bag of additive cost??

    I perceived that to have a successful vegetable garden whether in a desert or anywhere else, it requires these top 10 tips. I strongly agree with these ideas because I am pretty sure that this could really help our plants to grow very well.

    Unsustainable at the very least. You should have an agro forest, growing your veges in the understory of trees and shurbs. ?

    John, why dont you use mulch on top of the dirt? holds water, keeps the biology in the dirt alive etc etc.

    Great info John!! Wish you were in Vegas when I lived there! I am in Reno NV, don't get the high temps like you do in Vegas but we get pretty close. As always, thanks for the inspiration!

    Armenian cucumbers aka snake melon do pretty well in Vegas, and we had good luck with winter squash down there (except for being attacked by squash bugs!)

    I always enjoy your LV tips since I struggle trying to grow my southern favorites here. I know that you're not big on growing potatoes but you may want to try a small section of sweet potatoes next year…mine are over running everything and the greens are edible…cooked at least, I don't know about juicing. Another new attempt for me this year was lemon cuc's and it looks like they're going to be outstanding.

    Really good info. What I could grow easily in the NE just doesn't grow in the west.
