    Start with what you like to eat, or use everyday in cooking. Peppers, onions, tomatoes, string beans. If you don't have a lot space they can be grown in pots. They grow fast and are easy to start. Don't take it so seriously. Everybody makes mistakes when they start. It will save you a few bucks. Good luck!

    I'm trying to work up the courage to start my own garden. I'm of limited means, & quite overwhelmed. Any advice on how to start?

    Nice [green tomato] wire basket. Where did you get it?
    A great weed block besides card board, is straw mulch and dibble planting. You may want to consider a bigger garden [including cayanne pepper] so you don't have to eat vermin / varmin that are currently eating your garden goodies. Consider spraying your garden with cayanne. A spraying a day, keeps them varmin/s away.

    Thanks, I like the vids for reference, in many cases I look back at previous years videos and see the timing and variances form year-to-year.

    Dried Molasses is used to quickly stimulate microbes in the soil and give an indirect benefit of fertility. It also in many cases will run fire ants off the property, which we have a problem with, Will go into more detial in upcoming vids.

    I cleaned up our garden over the weekend too. At least we have our winter gardens to look forward to!

    I cleaned up my garden beds last weekend. It's sad to see the warm season crops go, but the changing of seasons is calming.

    Great video, Brandon. Letting the people know all the work that is involved with the CLEANUP. I think you had a bountiful season. I, too, haven't planted my garlic yet. I plan on planting my garlic in the holes of my 'cinder block' raised bed'. Thank you for taking us on your gardening journal.

    do you normally trim off your asparagus while it is still green?

    Did you say you were going to add dried molasses to the garlic bed? I've never heard of putting that into the garden, what does it do, where do you get it? I've been cleaning up too. It is alot of work but sometimes you find extra fruit and veggies you weren't even aware of–bonus!

    Looks good – lots of work, but looks like you had a great year. Love the pumpkins, too 🙂
