    I’m in Marshall and have gotten a bit obsessed with living soil growing. Are you involved with any urban gardening work down here? I have a small Kioti with a tiller and knowledge of building raised beds. If you’re involved with anything from Jackson to Kalamazoo or Lansing to coldwater I would love to volunteer in the spring.

    I am growing 100% in containers, in Las Vegas. I have learned alot of these lessons first hand. It was hard but I was able to harvest some stuff. I am going to keep at it. I am excited to start my fall garden ( once we can stop having 100+ degree days) I am looking forward to the rest of this series!

    You could build a trellis with climbing vines, a grow wall, or some sort of structure to hang a shade cloth to create some shade giving relief to the other plants. Just make sure it's secured enough to handle the wind. Get your employees to tap into their imaginations.

    Why choose black containers? I would have thought that that would be too hot for the plants, no? That shocked me. Please let me know about your choice. Thanks– this is helpful!

    Paint that brick wall white to stop it absorbing so much sunlight.

    I have my raised bed garden inside a 10 x 10 kennel right next to the brick house. I put my tomatoes next to the brick thinking they'd like the heat. I am just now getting ripe tomatoes and I think thats due to direct sun not hitting that spot until 3 pm. Any suggestions on what would do better in that spot?

    Maybe some trees potted in wide-bottomed pots could help with the light and wind problems? A grape arbor might also work, and would make a nice area to sit under.

    I actually just got and added trifecta plus to my pots, grow bags and in my raised bed. It smells sp fertile which I was excited about and even in one day the greens are loving life. Down side… turns out my dog LOVES the smell of it and wants to eat it…

    Love your channel! I am a first time gardener. I have a question. I have a hard time planting tiny seeds. Is there a good way to do this without ending up with a clumped mess?
