  1. What great little raised beds. Excellent for apartments and small spaces.

  3. Always a good topic to see since I’m always looking for more ways to get
    the best use of space. Just moved into the apartment and have soil that’s
    more like dust than a good growing medium but letting my worms go to work
    on it and if it gets grow-able I’ll invite you out.

  4. Hi Starlight219, I’m not an expert gardener or anything like that, but I do
    have a container garden. And I must admit, allot of my containers don’t
    have holes at all! Sounds scary, but unless it rains allot every day,
    drying out tends to be a bigger problem than drowning in my experience. bUt
    if it’s still too scary just to wing it holeless,you can always ad a layer
    of small rock, clay pellets and other stuff for drainage on the bottom 😉

  9. I love how the little doggie is always walking around and having a good
    time in the back ground 😀

  10. Wheels on the bottom of the legs would make these beds extremely mobile and
    very useful.

  11. nice video! btw, did you take down your video before this one?? where the
    visitor comes for the summer tour?

  12. i appreciated your extra commentary on pest control. it cracked me up when
    you made that caterpillar “disappear”

  13. Hey, John. Have you looked at any of the stuff on people growing fish and
    using the fish water as fertilizer and/or using it to grow things
    hydroponically? I imagine that you don’t eat fish, but it’s still growing
    your own food! :) I have a business idea for using large aquatic snails as
    composters… and snails are eaten buy people all over the world. Win win!

  15. John, after seeing this video, I purchased 2 at my local home depot but
    haven’t planted them out yet as I have a question. The bed when assembled
    as supplied in the kit has one index finger size hole right in the middle
    of the center plank. The bottom is 5 tightly fit planks. The kit also
    contains a liner which is like a thick hefty bag material with 1 hole in
    middle. New SQFG recommends 1hole/sqft + 1hole/ea corner. What do you and
    the owners in this video think is best for drainage here?

  17. THANK YOU for this video. :) We’re renting, and I want to grow most of our
    food to cut down on food costs.

  18. Great Video John, This year the flea beetles destroyed all my Russian kale.
    Do you know a way to control them? Thanks

  19. Swiss Chard and Spinach are both in the Beet family… plants in the same
    family don’t typically do well as neighbors. There are exceptions (tomatoes
    and peppers, for example), but I wouldn’t plant Chard and Spinach together.

  20. Maybe John took down the video because of all the comments from guys who
    acted like they had never seen a girl before.

  21. Clever idea! Thanks!

  22. Sheesh …. too many commercials on your channel lately John! They ought to
    have the trees trimmed to get some light under there. I like this idea …
    I have a lawn that I do not like to water, so putting raised beds like over
    the grass shades it and helps the grass to grow with less water without
    killing it. I saw these at Home Depot, but they were pretty expensive. They
    are nice though … I should find some old crates and build some of these.
