  1. I live in a building and my neighbor threatened to throw from the roof all
    my plants that I have growing there because according to him they’re
    breeding mosquitoes, which is not true because there’s not water
    stagnation. But he’s the building’s manager and I had to take them down. I
    guess I’ll just continue to buy tomatoes in the supermarket until I can
    afford a house.

  5. General rule of thumb, if bugs don’t want to eat your plant; you probably
    shouldn’t want to eat it either.

  6. If it’s a waste of time then why did you waste your time on
    It worked good for me, but I did mine in the garden.

  7. what about a scenario where you are growing celery in your garden and the
    root system is already established? If you just wanted to cut off the
    usuable portion, wouldn’t that still allow for the celery to regrow more
    quickly since the root system is already developed?

  9. I normally agree with most things John says, but I have to totally disagree
    with the re-growing of celery! I have done this many times in soil, as well
    as hydroponically with VERY productive results! Just go watch my videos on
    celery, and you will see proof in the pudding! It also doesn’t take forever
    to get results, vs growing from seed. I plan on doing this in dutch buckets
    this fall so be sure to check it out ; )

  10. If the damage is done at night by bugs, it might be earwigs. They will
    pile into a basic oil trap. I found a great use for GMO corn….
    I use corn oil to catch the critters in small containers. I use corn oil
    because it’s cheap. The trap only needs an inch or so of oil. Earwigs will
    come out at night and drown in the oil.

  12. In this case you can still do juice fast while respect your daughter-in-law
    by being honest and explaining the situation to her. If she does not have a
    problem, she would probably want you to come anyway and be present there.
    If she does, then the problem is essentially hers.

  13. John Kohler is one of the pioneers in raw foods and organic gardening and

    I feel really honored. He included my video in his.

  18. never tried celery but green onions take quick when replanted from roots,
    considering the roots dont have to form and all that like john said with
    soaking celery. i tend to throw my celery in the compost pile but ive had
    green onions go from roots to two foot tall in a little over two
    weeks..biggest ive ever seen!

  19. I doubt it was a caterpillar, because those things would have been mowed
    down to nubs if they were.

  21. My thoughts on going to the pizza party I recommend he eat a salad, that
    way your not eating the negative things and your being sociable and letting
    the focus be on the birthday girl and not bringing attention to yourself.
    thnx for sharing

  22. Thank you John! It was little green caterpillars and I squished them with
    my fingers. The lentils never came out to amount to anything. I will try
    the seeds you recommend. The celery is still growing. I ended up staying
    home and had my juice. I juice fasted for 30 days. Thanks again everyone
    for your comments.

  23. Great insight. I am right there with you when it comes to re-growing
    celery. It is a novelty for sure, but like you said, I would rather grow
    one, and let it go to seed and have 40-50 free volunteer plants, than 1 I
    bought that was shipped across the country and soaked in water, not to
    mention probably inorganic, and then grow it out just to harvest a few
