  1. @growingyourgreens hi john you had one more stirrin installment of learnin
    lively. stayin at address we wonder if who we’re renting from would mind,
    but we’d just say upset as if overturn it. sun factor’s surely to be
    thought of for gardenin, even us & husband’s amazed at lack of architecture
    w/ more sunny side windows of home opening as well to funnel winter hearth
    of summer for hour or two. liked concluding creativity on logs’ plant
    space, once only impress landscape. to legit thrill, carolyn

  2. Hi John! I’ve been watching pretty much all your videos. I just got a nice
    size plot at our community garden. Well the plot was abandoned to say the
    least. They let winter squash and beans take over the whole area. We
    harvested the squash and we are attempting to start the whole thing over.
    Any tips on where I should start, this is my first time gardening. How do I
    clean out the soil? I don’t want anything coming back when we plant our
    first babies. Thanks a bunch. Love your stuff!! Keep it up!

  3. Having someone come over with free plants and making a raised bed? Sounds
    like a good day for the homeowner. Excellent video John. :)

  5. @nemodot The organic movement isn’t necessarily “anti technology”. If you
    have a hard time quantifying some qualities valued by the organic movement
    then just look at the parts you can quantify. Large scale growing usually
    requires food to be shipped long distances and a heavy use of pesticides.
    Shipping cuts down on nutrition in the forms of vitamins and minerals in
    two ways: 1) Harvesting before nutrients have been taken up sufficiently by
    the plant. 2) Nutrient degradation during shipping.

  7. Think Good… Better… Best.. Its better to grow your own food in rich
    compost and rock dust than to purchase conventional or even “store bought”
    organic food, even if grown in plastic raised beds. Although it would be
    better to grow in wood than plastic. Each person needs to determine what is
    most important to them. I spent alot of money building all my raised beds
    out of wood..

  9. You are a braver man than I. I would tie off the tops of those bags before
    putting them into the back of my car.

  14. I’m all in favor of composting for creating nutritive soil, but I really
    dislike the Organic movement. They seem just like an anti technology group
    with a nasty naturalistic fallacy. The notion of “natural” is useless,
    everything is natural. I think it comes down to hating all coming from a
    lab-llike or industry-like facility.

  15. @nemodot Account for the pesticides and early harvesting & you are probably
    right about technology being beneficial use to agriculture. Side-note:
    since you’re talking about biology, think about agar plates and “defined”
    or “undefined” growth media, we are more complex than bacteria. It’s not
    easy to know exactly what nutrients are best for an organism to thrive.
    Medical science doesn’t know exactly what we need, which is why artificial
    fertilizers may not be enough.

  20. This guy spends more money on gardening in a month than I have in the last
    10 years.

  21. @enlightenmentation I think I am informed, I’ve studied biology and I like
    botanics. “vitality” and “life forces”, those words are so unespecific, so
    abstract and subjective that they haven’t any real meaning to me.
    Industrialized food can be nutritious, even if you don’t like machines and
    technologies, we can measure Nutrition, and the origin of food doesen’t
    matter if it has propper care, be it with compost and rock dust or with
    fucking synthetic fertilizers.

  23. Hey John, you said you were doing this for a viewer. Well where was that
    person? Seems like you did all the work. That’s mighty generous of you. If
    you’re ever in Chicago, I have some projects for you. LOL.

  24. Great info, thx John :)

    March 2, 2014 at 2:06 pm

  25. @Thaneii Hey, I’m the viewer! I was busy holding the camera plus he really
    seemed to want to do it all himself. We had a cute little dog with us too.
    It was very generous and fun of him! My first raised bed, yay!
