This year for 2012 we are going with http://www.incredibleseeds.com as their seeds rocked, the other 2 companies we bought from all their seeds were complete failures.

This is video is the complete growing season from start to finish, it’s been a lot of work but I really enjoyed it.

Over 900lbs of food on the first attempt!

Just started the video and kind of skimming through it, great looking
garden, lots of work! I’ve dug them up by hand before but nothing like that
lol. You go man… I like the crowded rows! More veggies and I think the
plants like it actually.

Damian Rivero says:

beautiful garden you made there sir. I was just wondering, what’s the name
of that plant in the first row adjacent to the onions? in one segment I
hear rootdevega and in another I hear grewdavega. I tried searching for
it under google’s web and images but can’t seem to find it. I had even
hoped that google would correct the spelling for me,
instead it autocorrected the word into the name of a foreign brand -_-
i’m almost starting to believe that either i’m a dreadful speller or I have
a hearing impediment o.o

What! .. That is the rock pile? D: 

Annie Gaddis says:

Your Brussels sprouts – did you remember to trim off all the bottom leaves?
If you don’t, you won’t get any (or very few) sprouts. Cut off the first
5-8 inches of leaves.

Judith M says:

I’m sorry. I misunderstood. I thought you meant your started the tomatoes
by seed “outside.” Anyway, your garden is very impressive and I’ve been
enjoying your videos. Can’t wait to get something started but it’s only
January! Hope to see more of your videos.

Michele Goodsell says:

you did an excellent job. I think I have watched this video about 500
times. its awesome. I hope you continued on your gardening. I love my
garden, but wish I had the space you have.

Flintknappingtips says:

The rock pile is as lovely as the garden. Nice work. 

Judith M says:

Loved this video. Where are you located? I’m in PA and I have to start my
tomatoes and brussel sprouts indoors long before putting them out in the
garden. How was your 2012 garden?

Ed19601 says:

‘The tomato situation’ 🙂 great. I will remember that expression :-)

Ed19601 says:

Very impressive

Vicki Olson says:

Have you learned to take your lower branches off of your Brussels
sprouts? You only need to keep the upper six inches or so of
branches….When you break them off below the plant gives more of its
energy to producing the sprouts.

MotherofHells says:

Wow foundation rocks to the new earth friendly Eco “ManCave”, at the corner
of the yard. add solar and tv. 150 sq. ft. and no building permits
required. (Earthships building)

Craig Horton says:

Awesome video buddy…I’m expanding my garden this year. A question…Are
you blanching the veggies first or freezing straight out the garden…I’m
having storage issues

ToriMichele Morris says:

Just curious, are you keeping up with your garden? I’m on my 2nd year. Ppl
are telling me I should rotate my crops every yr. how do you feel about
that? What do you do to your soil each yr to replenish the soils nutrients?
Thx so much & I just subbed 🙂 

Rudie Watzig says:

How do you manage your weeds so well? Are you out there every day, or do
you just not have crabgrass problems like we do in Oregon?

Sean Cleary says:

That rock pile isn’t moving, is it? yeah I wouldn’t touch it either.

Good work on the garden, although I think you really ignored leafy greens. 

TCreatorO says:

I really enjoyed your whole video and the process, but man, just about
everything looks GMO, maybe the compost you used was spiked, but normally
non GMO veggies are smaller than normal GMO ones, youtube search “exploding
watermelons china”, thats what some of your crops remind me of, so
becareful what youre eating brother, if I were you I would keep a
controlled garden grown with the normal dirt in your garden with no
additives for nothing, and another controlled garden with seeds from the
markets products, just to compare to see whether it might be the chemicals
from the additives or processed compost, but somethings not right.and what
you said about the skin and texture of the beanspeas, that sounds like a
hybrid crop, do some research on how to tell the difference between GMO and
non GMO crops, thake care and ill take a look at some of your other videos
if I like them too ill subscribe ;)

george balaur says:

Well done! To avoid to much work, watch ”Back to Eden” movie about
gardening. You will be amazed:http://vimeo.com/28055108

Keith Van Brunt says:

You are blessed by God and have a gift I think you may have over planted
the rows. but i’m not an expert. I’ll check the next years videos and yes
start the tomatoes in february. 30 degrees for you is 86 for me. took me
a bit to figure out you are on celcius. I used tomato cages on my zucchini
to keep them off the ground. I have 4 inch high hybrids and many 2 inch
high heirlooms in my basement. i’ll be selling a good bit of them. nice to
sit down there as the snow storm hits. It’s like sitting on the beach.

Douglasville Darling says:

It says start to finish, but you did show preparing the soil. You keep
talking about the soil, but did not show what you did. That is where I need
to start.

DAYBROK3 says:

looking at the rocks there must have been a river or lake there at some
point in the past. both potatoes and tomatoes like the soil a bit acid. oh
and you will find more rocks every year. you may as well start a project
using rocks.

Tommy Cowett says:

love the video. great season long documentary. this is a great timeless
how to video. great work, you had success and i wish you great success in
the future! Bravo! Bravo!

Gerald C says:

yes fresh tomatoes now is great — hope they have good favor.
Have attached a few pictures tomato cages and pvc frame 10′ long with same
48″ wire as tomato cages. These frames are for pole beans. Have even put
frames on both sides of tomato when trying a different way to hold them
up. Have tried many different ways but inter and out cage with T post
has been best way to hold over 6 foot high tomatoes in my garden. Yes I
know they can be taller. These are Early Girls and Better Boys. Love
fresh tomatoes and we canned over 250 quarts

Kenney Madsen says:

Do you live in Nova Scotia, or is that just where you have the seeds from?
I’d like to know. Its a great video I watched them all by themself, found
this and I have shared and watched it couple times aswell. Its a mighty
fine work on the garden and a good quality well made video. Keep it up. I
will be sure to look for more videoes from you.

fieldagent59 says:

your Garden serves several purposes, Organic vegetables and your date for
Saturday night….good luck, one sugesstion…….Ruger 10/22 with a 4X
scope, ..that way you won’t spread lead all over your property…..:)

Danny smith says:

Crows are very social and live in tight-knit families and they miss each
other.They eat road kill, insects,mice , snakes and corn and human fast
food. Crows are down by 50% due to West Nile.They are one of the
most smartest animals in the world. In US you must have a permit or license
to hunt or kill them.

Brandon Cole says:

also keeping heirlooms next to each other such as broccoli and cauliflower
have a chance of reproducing since they are close relatives which make it
taste like shit lol
