It takes you through all the steps to build your first earth bed vegetable garden. I cover size, fertilizing, peat moss, mounding, general principles and show you some planting ideas. I also turn my space into a cherry tomato hedge. You can use this type of garden as you wish!

HD and Lowes always has Garden soil on super sale Memorial day weekend every year. Also sometimes 4th and Labor day Weekends. 5 bags for $10 .
what is wrong with 10 10 10
Thanks to you I wouldn’t have started my first experience of growing any vegetables, I have the transplants outside some not very happy and more happier ones. My question is the soil is hard and rough to the touch but not dry
I just came by this channel and i love it
HOT TIP: Ask your local Home Depot (or equivalent) if they sell ripped/torn bags at a discount. At my local home depot they pile on half a dozen bags of ripped soil bags onto a cart and sell the whole thing for 5 bucks.
Hey mate, your videos have finally convinced me to create my own homestead here in Australia. Let me know what you think.
Peat moss can acidify your soil. Which generally most plants thrive in slightly acidic soil!
which zone you in Gary?
Completely wrong, you should look into no dig/till systems, it'll be easier, more successful, and much fewer weeds. You've completely destroyed the soil food web. Leave the grass down and just build the bed on top much better for the garden and the planet.
Can you plant tomatoes there next year or will you have to rotate your crops?
what is the best treatment for tomatoes cabbage squash plants
I don't know what you do for a living but it's obvious that you're one of Americas finest, a farmer.
Gary i would like to know where U sourced your aluminum metal tubs for raised bed growing?
hi Gary! Love your channel, have you tried Brads atomic grape, black cherry or the black prince tomatoes? Sooo good! I’m trying out a few wild boar farms tomatoes this year and am soooo excited to try them! Anything you’re most excited for?
In a word….. WOW! Can't wait to see those fully grown!! 🙂
Hi Gary. Have you found a way to control downy meldew in cucumbers. I. Get it every year here in Denmark.
Using peat will lower PH?
