    @kathpetit Hey, I'm in Atlanta! Have you thought about finding shaded, partly shaded, or mostly shaded spots to grow in? Also, I don't know what your process for growing, but something works for me is starting from seed. That way from day one (okay… maybe day two 😉 ) they are aware of what to expect as far as sun/shade goes. I've actually got carrots and kale growing in this heat in the sun and they are supposed to prefer the cold because I started from seed. Ones I transplanted failed.

    I would love to have a dollar for every time John says "basically". and "Like".

    Though I have been accused of saying "like" way too much. Like an 80's Valley Girl on speed.

    And I have never seen ANYBODY tongue an artichoke, period. That was plain weird. Made me uncomfortable. Though yes, it would make a great t-shirt.

    I just looked up this place on google maps. That place is gigantic . What would you recommend for a apartment balcony ?…

    Always look forward to your videos. I have some young plants that are not doing well in the hot Georgia sun; can you give me an idea of what kind of shadecloth I might buy. They come in strengths of 30-90%. What would you recommend?

    I think that's the first time I watched a youtube gardening video that got me that excited. lol The knowledge your share in your videos is priceless, but your humor is just as appreciated. 🙂
