    Get some composted cow poop into those beds and plant more in! But i have a feeling Johns put more care into the beds than the owners have.

    Hey john. The pepper man. My peppers are getting brown and wilting leaves. Is it to hot outside for them or am I over watering or something else???

    Also. Any tips for killing ants & caterpillars. They just won't seem to die at the hand of any normal insecticide

    John- thanks for your many videos, I'm just 17 and wanted to build myself a garden to start growing whatever plants I could get my hands on, I didn't have much of a plan going into it but now via a plethora of Internet advice and mainly your videos for growing tips, I have bush baby watermelons, cantaloupes, cucumbers, tomatoes, Greek pepperocini's, yellow cayyene's, zucchini's, and carrots all growing. I had a couple questions- for reference, I live in Texas around the DFW area, my garden is just on my side yard as I don't have a lot of space in the city. Obviously it gets quite hot and the sun bears down pretty hard on the plants- they get only 2-3 hours of direct sunlight a day, the rest of the day they are decently shaded. During those hours, my cucumbers go limp as if they were wilted, the leaves droop, and it really looks unhealthy. They always perk back up afterwards- but is this a normal thing, is it bad, does it matter?Another thing is that they are appearing to be battered by a disease- some of them have yellowing leaves, which eventually wilt and die. What is this and can I prevent it or stop it? I avoid watering their leaves as much as possible, and they are trellised.

    John, my wife just got pregnant. you honestly are one of the first I'm going to. What is the optimal diet that you would recommend? I know greens are the base of a healthy diet, but what in particular would you grow for your woman? Thank you for the years of education I have received from you, and thank you for any help.
