    John so you are you still “testing” the earth mister scam, must be hard to fix all the problems and come up with something half decent to show, you are a good man but unfortunately you fall for too many scams, good luck with it and I hope that those who fall into that scam don’t sue you and that company.

    Very good tips John. A good foundation will go a long way to ensuring good results. Although I do agree with you about drip and subsoil inrrigation, I prefer to do hand watering as it is the time where I can take a look at what is happening in my garden and see what needs to be done. If you do hand water it is important to aware of where you water. Generally, I think you should keep your watering down low on the soil

    What do you do with weeds in a garden plot when there is no compost area?

  • ClaireMoylan says:

    Okay, I got to ask. Are those your feet or are you wearing some funky shoes? Sandals? Everytime I catch a glimpse, I keep thinking they’re tennis shoes with pictures of feet on them. This isn’t the first video I’ve seen that. Just curious.

    Is the earth mister that you refer to the My Lazy Gardner you picked up at that trade show?

  • social3ngin33rin says:

    no one responded to my questions for the earth mister
    i asked about using it on a hill
    how would that work out/ be installed?

    John you’re the man. Thanks to your videos I got serious with my garden this year and am loving it. I’d love to have you come see it when I am done adding beds. Also why don’t you have a T.V. Show yet HGTV needs to get on the Growing Your Greens Express

    U sound like uve been brainwashed on soil. How do things grow in the wild? They dont have compost or fertilizer

  • gtrwndr87 says:

    Hey. You’re one town over from me here. Those stink bugs you mention are probably those bagrada bugs and are just awful to deal with and I’m pretty sure they only come in infestation quantities. Will try the insect frass next on mine. Thanks for the rec.

    We have a community garden in our town in a public park. Its a great use of public land. 

  • cursedwyvern says:

    Chop them up and use as a surface mulch.

  • sams7725 says:

    Good for you!!! I think this a very good idea and practice. Years ago this was the norm, espeically during WWII. Now, we get food stamps.

  • sams7725 says:

    Yes it is!

  • sundown4277ish says:

    Always great advice. Thanks John

  • gloorbit says:

    Question: the earth has come to the state it is in today with rainfall, so all the heirloom seed we use have come down to us through history, no?

    Overhead watering mimics rain water. How can installing plastic pipes, emitters and electronic controllers improve on rain? It seems a nature mimicking mulch layer to hold moisture is very important.

    Playing the devils advocate here. Thanks for doing what you do.

    Awesome! Thank you!

    What a great idea to have a community garden at a church. I bet there are churches that could use their extra acreage to grow healthy, organic vegetables to give to the needy. I know the church I go to has a food pantry in which they give away non-perishable foods, The problem with that is that most things that are canned or boxed have been processed and lost most of their nutrients. It would be great to supply those in need with good, nutritious, healthy food!

  • lisakaye551 says:

    I’m a self employed artist who gardens in my local community garden. I have a hard time coming up with the money it takes to grow food in my garden. With yearly purchases for compost, amendments, traps and barriers for gopher voles and rats, tools, hoses and plant starts etc., I wonder if it would be less expensive if I purchased just what I needed of organic fruits and veggies from Whole Foods market. I completely understand way some of those gardens in your video are under planted.

  • faeriegardener84 says:

    I think what he’s getting at is that it rarely rains when it’s sunny 😉 On a shady/overcast day, I doubt you’d have to worry as much about leaf burn. So installing the plastic pipes and so on, gets you the water needed right? That way your heirlooms don’t have to experience drought and hope that they throw enough seeds out to carry on thier dna lol.

  • FlowervineFarm says:

    John are you still doiing your 3pm talk during the Heirloom Expo on Tuesday? I’m trying to plan my schedule for the three days. Thanks.
