    I had no idea you could grow a garden in the winter. I will definitely be trying it out this winter. Thank you for the information!

    John, beginner gardener here. You mentioned rock dust. Is there more than one type?

  • thecinnamonlady 4 years ago

    John this is off-topic but I can't find the video where you talked about DE. Now I bought a bag at Home Depot and got it home – it talks about killing critters and sounds like it might be toxic to use on my veg garden. Please either refer me to your advice or e-mail me at Thanks!

    Wow….I remember when you planted those tree collards. Where do you suggest I purchase those. I would love to have a little collard forest like yours 😉

    Time. If I plant lettuce today, it will take a few weeks to get to the point where they are TODAY if I buy them. It IS getting colder here and days shorter (less light), and with the cold comes less growth. I want to be able to eat sooner rather than later. TRUE, if I planned it better I could have started them in the greenhouse, but Im pretty much a one-man show here… I did have an eposide on buying vs starting seeds where I explain this.. check it out..

    @ameetpinto Ani Phyo's Kitchen book has a great raw pumpkin pie recipe. Also, grind up the pumpkin, dehydrate it, mill it again, and you have pumpkin flour. handy for a lot of things. I never thought of juicing it.

    I took your advice and ordered rock dust from peaceful valley and added it to my garden. Great info Jon

    I cant wait to see if you are right about that tree kale mine is purple like the one you have and i bought it in palo alto ca. I laughed about the guy getting a little pissed off when you questioned him, glad to see im not the only one who has ran into that situation buying plants/trees. Places thought i was nuts asking for their rock dust , and thought i was a idiot for purchasing a filter for my drip line. Sometimes you just gotta do what you know is right for yourself.

    I had the video showing harvesting, and I have been dehydrating the seeds.. yummm.. You can also eat the flesh. (or juice it)

    The Santa Rosa Farmers Market.. on Wed and Sat.. Kinda far to drive… Im sure a local nursery would have some good starts.

  • ameetpinto 4 years ago

    Do you have an update about your pumpkin harvest?

  • Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens 4 years ago

    I have grown wheat before (for fun). It was fun to eat FRESH wheat kernals. I do grow wheatgrass in trays in the greenhouse sometimes. I think that its easier to buy wheat than to grow it.. I encourage people to grow things that would be expensive to buy, such as mache in the winter time.. Unless you just want to grow it for fun!

    I have the green tree collard you just bought and I have had them for a year. I did not pay 25.00. Centrose nursery in southern california. I think I gave you the nurseries name previous. I got the purple and green ones there.

  • Vladivostok 4 years ago

    Have you ever considered growing wheat? I live in Northern California (pretty close to you) and I was wondering how it would grow here.
