    Cultural groups, and cliques in society shun the idea of being a farmer.

    @John, started growing my own lemons, cherry tomatoes and peppers indoors in my window seal, so far growing 4 lemons, 2 cherry tomatoes and 2 sweat peppers plants, hoping for 10 peppers per plant and 20 cherry tomatoes, will continue to grow these so i have ready supply, with 1 plant being planted each month, ensuring a steady supply for cherries and peppers, since plants are perennial and only grow one fruit before you need to replant them.

    Thanks for all of your videos John, I am a grewbie and I am learning a lot. I have a rain barrel and two raised garden beds above a clay area near the water table. I have woods nearby so It's difficult to get morning light as there is a small area that gets full light all day. I am enjoying eating RIGHT from my garden as I preen it and it really is something quite relaxing, and you still get to use your creativity.

    I actually live in Chicago. That snow was buildup from a while ago, it's where the snow is piled to make way for the sidewalks and roads. Although it hasn't snowed in a while, it I still pretty chilly considering that it's May already. ?

    John, do you have a calendar of where you're going next? I'm sure I'm not the only one that would love to meet up with you, if you're into it. At least would love to hear you speak at your next appearance.

    Excellent show John.
    Imagination and the knowledge of plant needs is all it takes to convert a small space into a viable and productive garden.
    Bon appetit

    It's almost impossible to find Dr. Earth products where I live. THANKS JOHN for letting us know that we can order Dr. Earth products from True Value's website and have them shipped for free to our local stores! This is going to save me a TON of money (especially on shipping costs)!
