Seeds When it's nite time says:

I suggest you keep that arm above parallel. It'll hurt less.

Janice' Esposito says:

hope you heal quickly especially since you are eating such good produce

Kc Carr The Oregon Hillbilly Hilton says:

I did take you up on that offer and now I use 100% Mirko Cro once a week great stuff

mygreenzebra says:

I like miracle gro with organic matter. Good stuff.

mahmoud hugo says:

how are you , If anyone else wants to grow you own tasty healthy home produce quick it's worth considering – Banfan Incredible Organic Miracle ( try searching google)? Ive heard some amazing things about it from my colleague – excellent! 

CultureCrossbreed says:

I dunno, man. Having children isn't exactly the best thing for the Earth, either. Maybe you should adopt.

Daniel Holt says:

Add megahydrate to enough of a liquid solution to drench the compost heap so the megahydrate is evenly distributed in it.

Daniel Holt says:

Another great farming aid: composted organic green lentils and with maybe dolomite powder, egg shell powder (which only has calcium in it), or mezotrace. It costs $2 for a dry pound of green lentils and it's rich in minerals except for calcium. In mass bulk it's much cheaper. You can use bone meal instead of egg shells but you're vegan, and egg shells I don't know what you would say. Green lentils are so rich in other minerals you just might want another source rich in just calcium with it.

Daniel Holt says:

Then it's just a matter of comparing them and seeing what has what, because some of these might have the same stuff as others so just combine what you want in the right ratios. Sea-crop is potent in trace minerals but I wonder if it has higher amounts of the bigger main mineral amounts, and which combination to use to get the perfect balance.

Daniel Holt says:

Then there's boogie brew compost tea, sea-90, and worm gold plus. I'm trying to figure out what is the ultimate cost efficient and most effective farming solution.

Daniel Holt says:

Pick the best combination and I guess you would want to compost it so it all predigests together. I would say use sea-crop, miracle-gro, and other aids along with organic farming. Manure would be good along with that in the compost. There would be a lot of things you'd want to use, and in combination you would use less of each because demands are lowered when they're combined. I wonder if microbial inoculant would also be good along with that. Compost minerals, nitrogen, and maybe megahydrate.

Daniel Holt says:

Miracle-Gro, I think Miracle-Gro is really good in assisting when mixed with sea-crop but Miracle-Gro isn't good by itself, this could be because it makes the crops bigger but that saps nutrients, but with the sea-crop and other additional aids used together in combination it replenishes more nutrients so that the Miracle-Gro doesn't sap it and so when Miracle-Gro is combined it's integral for long term but by itself it can cause problems long term such as depleted soil.

Francisco Atom says:

John a suggestion on the raised bed you helped Rick make. Rain drip has improved their fittings 180; 90; Tee.; it's called sure grip they hold better than the so called barb & easier to take apart. I have yet to see the 1/2 shut-off upgrade; Me I did my own upgrade & gave them the suggestion. I have yet to see it available on the retail market. I've been using rain drip since 1969 ; on ground containers ( Earth boxes). I am going to be switching to organics & where do I get the necessary

howiboy says:

this guy is the best!

Susan Galuski says:

I guess I was thinking that the seller didn't necessarily want to relocate the contents of the garden, but was concerned about the expense of moving or rebuilding the actual wood beds, etc. I thought having your garden in the bags and pool would make it easy to move (once emptied). But I could have misunderstood what he was asking. After all, containers filled with soil are also heavy.

OopzyDayzy says:

a kiddie pool is probably going to be too flexible to carry the weight of several bags. a 5 gallon bucket full of soil is pretty heavy by itself if you think about it.

dontmesswithnature says:

There are plenty of studies that compare biological organic to conventional fertilizers.

Name Here says:

I've got flourishing eggplants and bell peppers growing in one of those green turtle sand box things from Walmart. It was going to waste, so I would rather use it. The thing is that I drilled tons of holes in the bottom and added some cage to the inner perimeter to give a little support.. But it works really well and my eggplants and bell peppers are the first thing in my garden to fruit!

Susan Galuski says:

Re: Portable container gardens (moving beds from home to home frequently), what about grow bags (even durable shopping bags, like Walmart bags) in kiddie pools?

Susan Galuski says:

You made me smile big time when you edited your film to show a DOUBLE screen emphasizing No! No! No! Good stuff, John.

PeterNJNY says:

Get well soon. And take it easy.

artistmama1 says:

John, I am so sorry you were so severely injured. Man, that is really tough – especially because you are so active and love gardening. I pray for your quick and full healing and recovery.

Hoda Gibreel Osman says:

I can see you are a clean person.

Hoda Gibreel Osman says:

Sad to hear how it happens, anyway its an accident. From your videos seen all over the world, benefited many plant growers from different sorts, and now will further benefit people if it will be on a TV show. I follow closely all videos hereto and I get lots of ideas. But since I am in Egypt, so its not easy to see those depo in California and making videos right there makes as see and have ideas about different many plants and herbs, and the soil needed for a successful result. Thanks again.

alan30189 says:

Actually, John was arm wrestling with his girlfriend, lost, and broke his arm in the process. :-O. LOL. Just kidding!
Sorry to hear about your accident, John. Ladders can be bad news if you lose your balance. Just be glad you were able to get your arms above your head and didn't land on your head!
Be sure to get plenty of calcium in your diet so the bone heals well.

djchinatown says:

I though all seeds are non gmo for the public. Only if your buying bulk for a farm they aren't. However nature does lose out when GMO plants cross pollenate with heirlooms.
