    Hi John, In my backyard, I have a wrap around above ground garden area (about 70 X 3 foot) – but have found that due to its position it gets sun from sunrise to sundown – which equals sun fried plants. What would you recommend as a setup to add some shade to the area? Thanks

    Sweet potatoes also can be trained pretty easily to grow vertically, you will just get less tubers that way. But their greens are very tasty! I agree with the banana peppers. I have one plant that looks sickly and it still spits out peppers. I have grown 4 peppers on one plant in the last 2 months and another one if fruiting. I can only imagine if the plant was healthier, how many it would produce! I agree about the bell peppers, they never really seem to produce well for me, maybe one sickly looking one now and then. I live in zone 9b.

    john! i loved this video. for birds the stuff you are using. the silvered stripes are ok. but you need to put 100 times more than what you put. you can also try hanging cd they also do the job. but the best is bird netting.
