    @CityGirlGardener …You want to use soap not detergent……Donald

  • CityGirlGardener says:

    What’s in the Ivory Soap? I try to use home remedies that are chemical free, if not buy the chemicals…………………………………………………………………………………… I beleive that healthy plants helps to keep the bugs away. Some bugs are looking for weak, vulnerable plants. Then there are some you have to your babies (plants) defend them selves. That’s just my position. Great video

    @ILuvCaroline …Thanks for the tip…..Donald

  • ILuvCaroline says:

    I prefer a gallon of boiled water and 4 garlic cloves. Let it sit 24 hours and then spray onto the leaves of the plants. Works great!

    @Windinmysails71 …I wouldn’t make it my #1 defense against insects but it does seam to help if applied often…….Donald

    @TheSwabbie …yeah but look how easy it was with the blinder. lol……Donald

  • TheSwabbie says:

    For the part about the soap.. you could have heated the soap up in a pot with a double boiler and slowly added water to it.. that way you would not have to use the blender.

    @Garrisonpea …Maybe with regular spraying the homemade stuff would work but my main choice for bug control is Liquid Sevin……..Donald

  • Garrisonpea says:

    How did this bug spray work for you ? I had problems with cabbage worms and squash vine borers. Would this help solve that problem ? Or do you have another remedy? Thanks.

    @rayvt1 … check out the web site, I have a garden calendar for Zone 8 which is a good planting guide……Donald

  • rayvt1 says:

    Donald, the main concentration for crops will be:
    corn, potatoes, peas, beans, cabbages,onions, pepper (s), cucumbers, many types of melons, eggplant, carrots.
    Berries: Blueberry, strawberries, blackberries
    Flowers: Many Roses of every color and kind
    And needless to say, using your good advice..Ray

    @rayvt1 …Hey Ray and Linda, what will you be planting?……..Donald

  • rayvt1 says:

    Donald, Here in Texas, the weatherman says tomorrow, we are to get yet another snow storm…. I think when I moved here nf rom Nevada 6 months ago, I may have made another geographical error. HOWEVER the rest of the week and weekend are to be back up into 60s. Maybe I will be able to get my started seeds into the ground.This year we will begin with about an acre planted and see what success we have. Using your videos as our reference library.
    Ray and Linda Van Tassell,

    @rayvt1 … Wish I could loose about 150 lbs. myself. Rain started about 11 AM with some snow, ice and really cold temps for the rest of the week. I’ll be crying for rain in the summer but for now I’ve got enough……Donald

  • rayvt1 says:

    LOL Donald two years ago, I was 325 pounds, now 205 and have another 25 pounds to go. Why is t anything which taste good, is bad for you?,,,This years garden lost of tomatoe plants so I can do up lots of Chow Chow, and corn relish….WE have today had rain, snow, hail, and sleet. That puts some damping on gardening; as garden area is a float. By the way a good weed and grass killer for drive ways is box of salt, 1/4 bottle dawn soap and bucket of water, shake and spray..kills everything.

  • webcajun says:

    @rayvt1 … It’s like two different worlds. Nice to have friendly neighbors that help each other. Watch out eating all the good food, you may gain some weight. LOL…….Donald

  • rayvt1 says:

    Donald, we moved here 6 months ago, and we have found everyone over here super friendly. I built a 16×24 woodworking shop for my wife, and every day my neighbors were there to help. When we needed something (tool) as mine were still in boxes somewhere, they would loan me theirs, bring us new food to try (sweet potato pie, hush puppies, etc) Now I am helping one of them build their 36×16 shop) In Nevada I could be laying outside dieing and they would set over me. Love it here

  • webcajun says:

    @rayvt1 … neighbors today aren’t like the neighbors I grew up around. Everyone knew each other and helped each other out, it’s not like that anymore. Some call it progress. LOL……..Donald

  • rayvt1 says:

    When I had my garden in NV, the deer were a major problem, so I took a cheap security light and hooked up a boombox in garden area. At night when deer visited, they tripped the light and the boombox came on, scared the deer away. Worked till the only neighbors called police and reported it was waving them as well. Why did not they speak to me…..Puzzled..great neighbors….NOT

  • mrflyfishingak says:
