    very few people can truly rock the selfie-stick. You rocked it dude!

  • Ethelyn Schaeffer 1 year ago

    Yes, I like the selfie stick. It is more comprehensive and keeps our eyes looking. You will feel more at ease with it when you use it more 🙂

    How do the flavors compare on the different spinach. Where can I get some starts of the Ok spinach.

  • Skye Renard 1 year ago

    you have made me wanna be a farmer. I have wanted to do off grid living but this really makes the whole thing more complete. I really like your channel and personality and how helpful you are. I do have a question though that is off topic but I have not noticed you using hydroponics, aquaponics, or aeroponics (though if you have I might have missed it as I am new to your channel). is there a reason for planting in soil over the *ponics systems? is it just preference or some other reason? anything against *ponics?

    I would love to buy the weed book and seeds you mentioned by Katrina Blair! Could you give us that link, please?

    have you heard about the "organic" soil, sold by big name brand companies, that has shredded tires in it?

  • DON'T BE A WIMP 101 1 year ago

    did you know that tire chips are being used in some "organic" composts and soil? i have just put up two videos about "organic" gardening. i did a lot of research on "organics" and "organic pesticides." links are provided in my description, so that, i can back up my facts.

    And that is not all the $.99 stores are good for… I have purchased, organic cauliflower (huge head), organic Romaine (either leaves or whole, 3 in a pack) other baby kale and spinach ready made salad greens (clean ready to eat, what a nice service) and ripe bananas are always available. Can't beat the price. I totally play the numbers game when it comes to paying for my produce. And I still do well, as I locally source much of my food. When I get back to the earth again… oh, happy day.

    Glad I watched your video John, specially the point about leaving your cards on the table. From now on will be canning the leaves from broccoli and cauliflower plants also since we can't eat all the fresh greens we grow in a few months here in northwestern Canada. But we are enjoying a variety of canned greens from kale, pigweed and stinging nettles all winter and adding something new will be a new greens taste experience. Had not thought greens tasted much different from the next one until I started canning them, what a surprise that was. Sure envy that you can eat fresh greens all year:) all the best!

    Interesting crate system…you could even grow mushrooms in the bottom level. I would line each crate with straw.

    Great job on the point of view. I usually do not like selfie sticks or go pros but this one wasn't bad!
