Certainly, I believe that reading materials for organic gardening are the best learning tool to have a good start. This will truly help you explore and expand your knowledge in the field of gardening. Nice video!

Have a beautiful Japanese Cucumber! Yay! Ok, back to watch your vids on growing more greens! Thank you John. I'm off to read some books now.

Windy Hill says:

I am so grateful. You teach something in every episode rather that just wandering around the garden "doing updates". 1 weeks worth of growing is boring, But you really relay information that give us the opportunity to be better gardeners each time we rush out to our garden. Thanks.

Robert Brennan says:

Thanks for all the book reviews

Very good overview of a number of good books out there. After mixed success last year I read both The Vegetable Gardener's Bible and the All New Square Foot Gardening book and watched several excellent videos on Youtube, including your inspirational ones — thanks, John. As a result, this year's garden is new and much, much better. I went with organic soil made in Georgia rather than make the square foot soil mixture. Write-up at danielsklar (dot) com.

Square foot gardener. I bought it and followed the books' instructions. I did however use John's soil mixture and watched many of his videos to supplement the method. This is my first time growing anything and Wow, my garden has done amazing! I will change planting only one tomato plant vs two. Both tomato plants covered my whole garden for the week and a half I was gone. Unbelievable! Juicing alot of my plants. Thank you John Kohler! You're my hero!

John, Please, sorry, I could not make out what you said the second bottle, the red one with the yellow spray top at 2:26 was called – the one for powdery mildew. I have heard from other You-Tube gardeners that there is not really much you can do for powdery mildew. I have it on my Snow Peas and have tried neem oil to no effect. Maybe I need to use more? I wonder how many plants are infected with this stuff right from the nursery? Another good video, thanks!

Cool building!

Hi John, great vid.
We get nearly all of our seeds from Baker Creek and receive their catalog as well. Great items and info. We plan on attending one of the festivals they have at their Mansfield, MO location in the future. We have friends that went and they said it was a blast. You should too. I believe they have events in Petaluma as well.
