    Organic is great because there are no chemicals in the food, AND it tastes
    MUCH better, besides being more healthy.

  • Drew realshit 2 years ago

    I started eating organic lately, but it is expensive. Maybe I need to grow
    my own instead.

  • rob nadigel 2 years ago

    Growing your own organic veggies is definitely cheaper than buying them!

    If you have no space for a real garden, then yes, you CAN grow things
    organically in pots, etc.

  • Garden Sheds Kent 2 years ago

    I guess it is really difficult to do transplant that’s why I am scared to
    give it a try. But through this video, I just found out and realized that
    it is not a quite tough. Thank you for this post because it is worth
    learning for! ?

    We got the bees for pollination. They do a great job. My neighbors love
    having the honey bees in the neighborhood for pollination of their flowers
    and plants too. Of course the honey we give them kind of sweetens the deal

  • licarivisuals 2 years ago

    I was talking to LDSprepper. He did, you shouldn’t use an automatic system
    for the initial watering of transplants especially on a small scale, I
    thought his sand/saw dust mixture was only on the very top layer, hence the
    green manure comment.

  • Urgearhead 2 years ago

    so are you glad you did this, rather than just the grass back yard… i
    remember when you were mapping out the yard….

  • LDSPrepper 2 years ago

    I found a wood mill in my area. But you can buy compressed sawdust from
    Lowes or home depot, You could also check cabinet shops.

  • Kooter6785 2 years ago

    Removing leaves from a transplanted plant should never be done. Plants have
    a leaf to root ratio that is vital for their survival. Removing the leaves
    puts stress on the plant and puts more effort into leaf growth rather than
    root growth. If you are looking for root growth, lower your watering. If a
    plant is not getting enough water, it will increase root growth to go
    searching for water. Also, planting your transplants deeper than the
    original root ball will increase your chances of rot.

  • yerdoppelganger 2 years ago

    a loss of rich organic soil, and thus nutrients, from the native grassland
    prairie were a result of the dust bowl. Furthermore, you continue to speak
    of physical erosion (wind erosion and water) which says nothing about the
    ramifications of chemical fertilizers. To quote you sir, “Your. Just
    another newbie with an attitude.” it should be You’re, and yes, I have an
    attitude with uninformed people spreading unfounded misinformation without
    providing any sufficient evidence.

  • LDSPrepper 2 years ago

    That is awesome. I have found that no matter what kind of care plants get
    they want to grow. They grow in cracks, with little water or nutrients. I
    have also learned by having three different gardening methods in my back
    yard that plants will grow faster, healthier and produce more nutritious
    food if they get the care and nutrients they need. Since I have a small
    garden I have the time to give them the attention they need to reach their
    greatest potential. And I enjoy the time in the garden.

  • LDSPrepper 2 years ago

    75% sawdust, 25%? course sand.

  • licarivisuals 2 years ago

    Are you planning on doing any cover crops/green manure/crop rotation with
    your garden?

  • Robert Swisher 2 years ago

    Also your watering system ,do you have a video on that as well ?

  • LDSPrepper 2 years ago

    I do have a video on the automatic watering system. Please view my
    Mittleider Gardening Method playlist.

  • Teddybear500 2 years ago


  • licarivisuals 2 years ago

    Couple things you might want to try next time: Don’t mound up the soil,
    actually have it inverted so the initial watering will flow towards the
    stem and straight down over the roots rather than away from the plant. It’s
    okay to apply some pressure, make sure the roots make contact. I also would
    have planted that other tomato, you have good soil going on and I would
    just bury it deeper for support and new roots will form out of the stem.You
    should get a seed catalog! Growing from seed is fun.

  • yerdoppelganger 2 years ago

    your statement that chemical fertilizers will destroy soil is unfounded. It
    does not destroy microbial life, and can, in fact, cause microbial life to
    flourish if used properly. overuse or excess of any soil amendment can be
    damaging. It most certainly doesn’t not destroy other nutrients. I’m a soil
    scientist and I have never seen a nitrogen compound attack and nullify a
    phosphorus molecule. this is ludicrous.

  • LDSPrepper 2 years ago

    I don’t mound the soil around the plants or press the soil down. If some
    soil is slightly higher it will settle when I water in the plants and
    nitrogen. The plant I didn’t plant was not a tomato. However, planting
    tomatoes as deep as possible does promote root growth. I have over 100,000
    heirloom seeds so I don’t really need any seed catalogs.

  • MrArizonacool 2 years ago

    do you have a Mittleider Gardening playlist?

  • CherokeeArchetype 2 years ago

    btw goodwork!

  • Vegitate Gardening 2 years ago

    TIL about growing vertical peppers, never thought of that one before. You
    can teach an old dog new tricks. 🙂

  • yerdoppelganger 2 years ago

    well sir, methinks one who publishes research in the Soil Science Society
    of America Journal may, perhaps, be a soil scientist otherwise known as an
    agronomist. It seems to me that you don’t have a valid argument so you have
    resorted to name calling and semantics. A master gardener is a trained
    volunteer (you). I have a Master’s degree from a land grant university in
    soil fertility. Your outrage speaks volumes. The dust bowls came from
    physical manipulation of the soil not chemical (fertilizers)

  • 72fr250 2 years ago

    Who are you talking to? He didn’t mound up the soil, his watering system
    shoots the water into the soil, so it doesn’t “flow,” and his soil is not
    “good,” it’s sand and saw dust. There would be no reason to rotate crops or
    use manure because the weekly feed takes care of all of the nutrients the
    plants need.

  • LDSPrepper 2 years ago

    Just like food I keep one year supply of fertilizer on hand. According to
    the USDA this is organic. All the ingredients used in the Mittleider
    fertilizers are approved for organic gardening by the USDA. If you buy
    organic produce at the store they could and probably are using the same
    fertilizer ingredients as the Mittleider gardening method. Organic means no
    toxic pesticides, herbicides or insecticides. That is how I garden.
