Patrick! My gosh! You are so talented! I couldn't believe my ears when I watched your music video! Yankees making hillbilly music! Unbelievable! Wished ya'll were here in Dixie! Can't wait to hear more! Oh, and the garden is awesome too! Love how you get everything started so early! Blessings from Bama!

I'm glad you told us how quickly you'll eat your harvest; I was wondering "what's he going to do with all those luscious greens?"!!

First frost free day 🎉

Are you reusing grow bags from last year ? Do you plant anything in the bed with perennial cold hardy greens during summer ? I have a bed where I want to do that but don't want to dedicate it only for greens for the whole season due to lack of space. Also I would love to see your Asparagus harvests. As usual a great video. It is so refreshing to see harvests coming in so early.

Hi, I was going over some of your old videos and came across the episode about using spent beer grains. I was wondering 5 years later are you still doing this? And have you learned anything new about the process that you can share in a new video. I have found a local source myself and would like to use it in my compost/worm bins all year long.

When do your sunchokes start sprouting?


Loving your music and garden as always, thanks.

We're getting a really late start this year (didn't start seedlings inside). Should be able to catch up once our heat loving crops are up in a couple of weeks. Going to be trying some varieties that you've recommended, should be a fun learning experience.

Finally! A good, organic, Zone 5 gardener. I am a new sub and found you via Christian at Ice Age Farmer. Thanks for your hard work and for showing us how to be successful!

Your garden looks great! When your winecap mushrooms come up, will you do a whole video about them? We were inspired to grow them thanks to your channel but now we have so many we’re struggling to use them all. We like them fine but they aren’t our favorite. Currently we are trying dehydrating them to make mushroom stock later, and we also use them fresh mixed in with other mushrooms. We haven’t tried to give them away because that seems a little creepy….”here, have some free mushrooms…no, I’m not trying to kill you….trust me!”.
How do you use them?

Have you had a year in which you didn't have to purchase plants or amendments due to your efforts from the previous year?
