    Organic seeds come from an organic farm with no pesticides and the non-organic are grown at a farm that uses pesticides. So there is a difference the only question is is how well do you trust the company that produces the seed.

    I freaking love your talk about organic labelling. THANK YOU. Someone finally said it!

    Hi Gary. HELP! I tried starting seeds indoors in peat pellets, egg shells, & plastic cups. I place them in a east facing window, until I could set up the 4' – T8 light shelf unit. But I guess the light coming thru the window was not strong enough, so the plants are very leggy. Should I throw them out & start over, or can they be saved? Thanks

    You’re the best Gary! Last year I watched so many of your videos when I first started my vegetable garden. I find them so informative and accessible. Inspired by you, I’m trying to document my setup this year. Here’s my short seed starting video, you’ll see I’ve used the methods learned from you, your grow light setup, and your grow closet. Thanks so much for all your teachings 🙂
