    I've grown perennial vegetables in south Florida thanks to you and Pete Kanaris. I have a bunch of stuff from Connors nursery.

    John, I can’t tell you how much I have learned from your videos over the past several years. I think I started watching in 2014. We are growing tons of food mostly because of what we learned from you. Improved our diet. Have a Joraform because you recommended it, etc. Worm farm, etc. Biochar. Even the hose and sprayer you recommended one time. You’re changing the world, buddy. You’re making it happen. Hoping to catch you again here in Santa Rosa at the Heirloom show if they ever have it again. Best wishes.

    You have certainly motivated collection of perennial edibles in Fort Myers FL. Planting something everyday is a goal I pursue.

    Hey John I'm in South Miami-Dade County and have planted moringa, chaya, katuk, and longevity spinach after first hearing about them from you. Thanks, and keep on keeping on!

    Imagine if every single house yard looked like that! Driving down the street you’d think you were in a jungle. And that’s a good thing.

    Brother I love these type vids that you do. I sit with a pen and paper writing down particular plants I want to get to know. It's a big help for me. I'm always learning something new from your channel. Not only that though but I get to see what others are doing within this life style. What their set up looks like and how they go about producing and maintaining it. I live in Ga. by the way within an HOA neighborhood so the stealthy plants are what I'm looking for 😉 Thank you and the people who allow you to do this. It does help others to learn and be more creative IMO. I just wish that there was an online network of people who sold their plants and seeds, such as Connor, for those of us looking to buy them other than having to buy from big box stores or more well known online nurseries or ebay. That would be kool.
