As always lots of good info. without the fluff. You had said in a previous video I believe it was the video of your peach trees overtaken by weeds. " never pull a weed " instead just cut it. .Is that because the soil/food web/fungi are disrupted? More importantly, how do you get rid of old, difficult weeds? Like Blackberry briars, and poison ivy. BTW Is that tractor new?! otherwise, what do you clean it with! lol

Pinkenstein says:

I am such a fan of your channel! Really good stuff, and I'm practicing many of the things I've learned from you, and starting others soon. This may be a silly question, and I'm sorry if you already answered it Andi missed it, but what is that striking plant in the tractor bucket at the very end of the video? It's gorgeous, and I must have one 😁
Thank you so much for the work you do here. You're really changing the way people grow.

Raised beds are more productive.melons grow in clay only if It is hilled. I Hill up the soil. I grow sweet potatoes in hills.

They’re brassicas

Bob Smith says:

Do not forget to add earthworms to your garden be it raised beds or not. Worms will loosen the soil, the worm casings (fertilizer) will add nutrients, additionally they help purify the soil buy eating it and any nasty microbes in it.

Patti Hayden says:

Wow I’m going to plant everything everywhere

Andrea Johns says:

The mistake is that brassicas don’t use fungi. (At least that is our understanding now)

sandra burke says:

your barn item will deter deer and other animals. now maybe your mistake was since you had your plant out of the ground the air would get to the roots and dry them out thus no soil growth.

Hi I am starting brand new vege garden, and have three 2400x1500x300 raised beds and a 3000×2000 poly-tunnel.. I am bringing in 50/50 screened topsoil and spent mushroom/bark mix compost to start and have placed cardboard on the grass. On one "experimental' bed I have placed rotted tree branches from the bush as a base with autumn leaves and coffee grounds. Not really hugelculture but I figure it can't harm. I have constant weekly free supply of shop coffee grounds. Can I blend this with the soil without composting first? I also have 2 CuM of wood chip which is weathered and will spread this on top of cardboard around the beds. Ultimately the back yard will become like a 'bush floor' instead of grassed as it is now. Do you also use the wood chip as a mulch on the beds? Can you let me know if these ratios are OK to start my new vege beds please.

Thank you for the informative video, Mark. I would like your advice on a newbie problem… I have a small 42 ft. x 22 ft. gardening plot. It has been neglected for several years and is full of small weeds (prickly dewberry is the worst). I was going to smother them with cardboard and mulch… then at the end of summer or early fall, use cover crop (as in your other videos) to prep the soil for spring planting. BUT after watching this video, it would be nice to have raised beds (as we get a lot of rain fall). My question is: Do I make the raised beds BEFORE smothering the weeds, after smothering the weeds – yet before cover cropping, or after cover cropping? I guess I should've asked if this is even a good plan. Any feedback from anyone is appreciated.

Hi Iamorganicgardening, I have question about the back to eden (BE) method on a production scale. I am trying not to till for organics and not lay down plastic mulching fabric, but I want the weed suppression of BE and the water runoff of raised bed and don't want the irrigation lines used in plastic mulch. If I laid down paper cardboard roles on to the raised beds and add well rotted manure on top and wood chips on top of that over winter, would that work? I am trying to find the most economical way to do BE on a commercial scale and than transplant into it via transplanter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate! I really want to grow health soil for Organic produce, but using modern tools (transplanter, discers, etc.) so, less labor costs.

was that not a bottle opener?

endo vs ecto type, the leafy green won't benefit from mycorrizhae

Dili Dili says:

Thank you for all your time you take to share your experiences. I start understanding my mistakes. This year I planted sunflower seeds between some rows of my vegetables. It's all about the whole army of diverse roots that can build the underground city, where vegetation can live and thrive, right? You're a great gardening teacher and a father. Admirations only!

Phillip DeMars says:

This type of plant does not use mychorizal fungi

angela curtis says:

Thank you for the info!! what is a great first mycorrhial fungi starter seed when creating my first raised bed?

SeaRose says:

What are your thpughts on "double digging" from the biointensive method? Does this eliviate the problem with drainage?

SeaRose says:

Wow, really good info. I think many people (myself included) would think that you can simply till your soil to make it looser and blend in organic matter to improve it, not realizing that if the soil beneath doesn't drain you'll have major issues. Thanks for this.
