  1. Nice job Joe, looks good. Do you raise your own pups? I think it might be
    time to get a new one soon.

  2. As long as you have at least 6 hours of good sun, that bed should serve you
    well. You will have competition with the tree roots so you will need to
    water quite a bit. With the small roots of a strawberry or veggie and the
    much larger tree roots, the tree always wins. I had a garden at one time
    which was similar to what you have there. It took a lot of care but did
    quite well. Good luck!

  3. Thanks Lillie, I will have to try something like that, since I am not up
    there all the time, the water retention and how it would stop the weeds
    would really help. Thank You.

  5. Thanks for commenting, I never thought about that, but we do want to figure
    out how to make a worm bed so we can use them to go fishing and not have to
    buy them on the way up. Do you have any ideas on how to do that? I hope to
    have some new wild edible videos coming up in the near future. Thanks. Joe

  6. I had some wood that I put in the wood stove this time up and it was pine
    only but it had so much resin in it that thing burned forever and was hot
    like burning a piece of birch. I will have to check my email. Thanks Marty.

  8. Ohh I LOVE that raised be with the logs!! What a great idea!!! I would love
    the look of that in my yard. You did a beautiful job! Were the strawberry
    plants bought or dug up from another location? Just curious. Had never seen
    them for sale like that? Hope this strawberry bed does great for you.
    Thanks 4 sharing. I am kinda behind on my video watching but trying to
    catch up with everyone. Take care.

  9. Awesome work. I like gardening too. I got one suggestion for you: try to
    cover the soil around the plants with leaves. This will protect the plants
    from freezing and water will condensate under the leaves, so you dont have
    to water them that much. all the best… Lilly

  10. Joe I understand, I have a friend who has a nice cabin on a river in
    central MO, been there many times, he doesn’t want everybody to know about
    it either. Enjoy your channel, keep up the good work

  12. Nice Video; I love your videos on wild edibles btw. Have u considered
    placing a small worm tower in your raised bed, It simply a pvc pipe with
    holes drilled in the sides at the bottom, bury the holes in the soil thus
    allowing the worms to move in and out into your soil. Put a few worms and
    then add food scraps as needed. It really is an easy way too get nature’s
    little fertilizers working for you.

  14. Nice work! Your buddy sure wanted to help, but still made sure you weren’t
    alone doing all that work :)

  15. Thank You, I will post videos on whats growing and not growing everytime I
    go up there. I am going to plant some apple trees up there like I have here
    at home as well, if nothing else, I know they will grow up there if you can
    keep the deer away, and they really attract deer so at deer hunting time if
    there is snow on the ground, they will come visiting, and it will be a
    short drag to the meat pole lol Thanks again. Joe

  19. Max is getting old I agree, and I never studded him, I got him fixed right
    away. I searched everywhere looking for a big blocky black lab male, and he
    turned out to be exactly that and has a great personality. Thanks.

  20. What do you do with wildlife encroaching on your vegetables and fruit
    garden? Also, do you recommend and types of soil boosters and water
    mixtures, possible pesticides both eco friendly and non?

    there, get him in the duck boat and start shooting he perks up and does his

  24. Great raised bed, …always nice to see you working ; ) …Take care my
    friend. Sepp

  25. Excellent, a really rustic raised bed! This will be a great test bed (Ack!)
    to determine what works and what needs improvement to successfully grow
    fruit & veg in Northern MN. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to scale up
    for more fresh summer produce – or, if a major societal disruption forced
    you & your family into a long term Bug Out – an important supplement to
    your diet. Keep us posted and keep up the good work!
