    My boyfriend and I watch your videos the most. We will be starting out in about a week in Colorado. Life changing information we've learned this week. Can't wait to get started. We will be following your methods. Thank you!

    Curtis, are you considering using heated, solar powered greenhouses on the new land you are looking for? Taking into account the shorter growing season you have, out in the rural area.

    Tried to make a contribution at your http://theurbanfarmer.co/support/ website, but it asks me for a login id first, which I don't have. So, sorry I can't help.

    We live in Baltimore in a historic neighborhood that only wants lawn. When we moved in, I immediately tore out the lawn and replaced with food forest…the historic commission was pissed, but I don't care. They insisted we replace the lawn and we stood our ground. Our house was built in 1938 when the American government encouraged homeowners to plant victory gardens…the harassment ended.

    Hey Curtis, hope vacation is going well for you!
    Another big advantage I see in your urban farming environment is lack of critters. In particular, the voles, moles, gophers, hedgehogs, deer, etc. And similarly, minimal bugs such as flea beetles, cabbage moths, nematodes, cucumber beetles, boring worms, flies that cause rust or scab, etc. Most rural gardeners expect to lose a significant percentage of their crops to critters and bugs. Your farming model of quick bed harvests certainly helps also. Seems like your biggest pests are slugs and fungus from dampness.

    I wonder if you could add cucumbers, peas, pole beans, or maybe some mid-season crops like broccoli which can be cut-and-come-again for multiple harvests. I had a bed of broccoli that sold $30 every week at farmers market for about 3 months by continuous harvesting the small shoots after the main head is harvested. And pole beans are very productive for a small space. But your model is great, so maybe don't change too much, eh!

    I doubt you have to deal with deer.

    I subscribed and you are my hero for the day. You said the magic password. "if you want to see some changes don't ask for a permission". Yes, you have to struggle for every right you want to gain, you have to struggle to keep every right that was gained after a long struggle, and "they" will struggle to not grant it to you. Let your guard down and rights disappear in thin air.
    As long as you can convince many people that your disobedience is for a socially just cause … you are on the right track. If you can't, you are easy pray. One more anti-social pest the bullies had to remove from the sterile society.

    Green right thumb up, and left fist up as well.

    J'aime beaucoup ta démarche de fermier urbain … tu es un de mes exemple à suivre … merci pour le partage avec tes vidéos gratuites …

    Je trouve qu'il y a beaucoup trop de plastique dans ta ferme … le plastique est un dérivé du pétrole … Tu es dépendant du plastique, car il s'use avec le temps … Je pense que la verre est meilleur que le plastique … Je rêve de tunnel en verre et de serre en verre comme les belles serres victorienne … Tu pourrais fabriquer de belles serres en verres avec du fer forgé … Une installation belle qui se remarquera, très MARKETING … On dit que la beauté est la parfum de la vérité …

    Pardonne mon audace fréro … J'imagine ta ferme avec des tunnels de cultures avec du verre et du fer recyclé … et des serres proches des serres victorienne, verre et métal … cette beauté, va attirer du monde … en plus, ce sera très écologique, BIO, naturel, sans pétrole … et durable … Une serre en verre et métal peut durer 30 ans s'il est elle bien construite …

    Bonne route fréro … I love U ^_^

    Hi Curtis, I'm enjoying your videos – really good stuff. I have a question, sorry if it has been asked already – How do you deal with garden pests like SLUGS. My garden is often overrun with them and will easily decimate a crop of new seedlings. I wondered what measures you have put in place or do you not have that problem?

    You said in another video that you went woofing and you learned nothing? Do you not recommend woofing?

    I already have 2 allotments here in the UK and I had asked to garden my neighbours garden a few years ago to his agreement. it was only this autumn that I got my finger out and started clearing his small piece of land….nothing on a scale to yours in Canada. this garden is just a small 5×15 metre plot but is already creating a community. I have a meet up group that I host and it's small, but it's been a great start. your actually doing it already inspired me to start at last. already been growing vegetables a good few years so I will be excited to see what I can grow just outside my front door on a very different type of land. thanks for the inspiration.

    a MAJOR issue for me down here in Trinidad (in the Caribbean) is that the rural farm has a river but it's contaminated/polluted and the water service to the location is VERY costly.
    we also have issues with access roads and planning permissions to cut new roads

Thank you.

    Unfortunately, urban farmers are at the mercy of their neighbours, who sometimes just want to see green lawns, not gardens. I've seen people receive bylaw infractions for planting large gardens on their front lawns because neighbours complained, which is sad, but a reality in some places. Cities are just large condo complexes that often have people who want to control their neighbours.

    While I'm really glad to see an attempt at punctuation in a Youtube video title – usually absent – there are no apostrophes in "pros and cons", they are plurals. If you want to be very pedantic, you could keep it for cons as it could be argued it is an abbreviations of "contras"; but that word is a bastard child of Latin and English so I wouldn't do it. "Pro" is not an abbreviation.

    Hello Curtis i am from Portugal. You have a fan over here, just watched all your videos and the content is amazing. Loved it!
    So i have a question. I live in a city with alot of restaurants close to my house, max 10 KM and my house has a land of about 5000 square meters with anot of natural water and the soil is dark and rock free. Is it possible to turn this land profitable? how should i select the crops i need to plant? Can this be decided by asking directly on the restaurants like "what whould u like to buy from my future production?". I dont know how to approach restaurant owners. Any sugestion on those questions?.
    Thank you very much curtis keep up the good work! hugs

    A possible disadvantage – in most places, a couple of acres of rural land can be infinitely cheaper (less ridiculously expensive is more accurate) than investing in any size of land for a "home base" in an urban area. But as you beautifully demonstrated, making substantial profit as an urban farmer is possible. You're a real inspiration by the way.

    This video was extremely high quality — well written.
