Come September, it is time to start transitioning my vegetable garden towards the cool weather fall crops. I like to seed start my cool weather vegetables outdoors in seed cells and cups. As my warm crops fade out, I find patches to tuck in my fall seed starts.

    It was difficult to watch this video because the background noise was off the charts.
    Any chance you can treat yourself to a lavalier Mic? The wireless ones can be really expensive but since you videotape so close to your own camera you should be able to get away with a decent price corded mic.

  • I Love 2 Cook

    Hello from Australia. New subie here. Love your garden and gardening tips. Will try things out as we head into summer in a couple months.

    Hi Gary,
    Very impressive! Can I use peroxide, baking soda or neem spray on my 3 week old seedlings? a couple of bugs are taking bites etc.

  • Laura Page

    Just found you today. I want to order your cool weather pkg but could not find it. Your site is great. Will keep up with it from now on.

  • Beverley W

    What do you plan to do with all that basil? The seeds I got from you also produced really well and even though I have been eating it, there's still so much still on the plant, I'm not sure what to do with it all!

    Hi Gary
    I used grow bags this year which were effective and perfect on saving space. My question is What to do with them as the season is ending and I am not going to be using them. Will the soil rot over the winter. How should I store my container soils…..Help.

  • Orchid and Kitties

    how you save your cucumber from cucumber beattle?.all my cucks got killed by them this year.I sprayed with neem oil many time but they won..

  • Ginger Kirby

    My determinate tomato plant that I thought was done setting fruit weeks ago, is suddenly flowering and setting small fruit again. Is that normal?

  • Jolene Talboom

    Looking good! I tried about 8 different beans this year, it's fun trying all the different varieties! I realized a need a few more beds, lol. I sprayed my pie pumpkin 3 days in a row with h2o2 and it still has powdery mildew. It did take care of some of the leaves that had a little on it. Should I remove all the leaves that have it, then spray?

  • Heidi Fetzer

    Is it a little to late to start planting the fall veggies by seeds or would I still be able to plant them I like if I want to plant them in peat pallets or something

  • Ramona Macabugao

  • hope crews

    I love the gardening tours! I agree with your comment about growing what you like. I learned that the hard way Lol. And also grow what seems to grow best. I wasted time with things I can't seem to grow . .. carrots. I can't grow carrots for whatever reason. I have all but 3 raised beds cleared down. We are suppose to have an El Nino Winter this year. That means below AVG rain/temps for my region. My winter garden will consist of 3 types of Kale: Regular, Red Russian and Dinosaur (I have had kale live all the way in to spring here), mustard greens, mixed greens (for my rabbits), rutabagas (up now!), purple turnips (up now1), collards (the most cold tolerant of all brassicas), and spinach. I got some borage seeds to grow next year ( i hear they taste like cucumbers and the pollnators love it, it self seeds so some hate it) Cool crops I think are often times easier . . . no bugs! My other problem I must get over is spacing. I love to cram. Have a good week Gary!

    Thanks Gary, love the veg profiles. I subscribed to the AAS channel. You got me sold on the Roulette habanero for next year.
