      @growingyourgreens did you have to bury those post for YOUR raised garden? If so how far? If not did you use an inner brace for support? Or if it would be easier do you have a video explaining how you built your raised beds? It seems like too much dirt to be in just? an? open box!? Keep the vids coming!!

      I can not find asbestos free vermiculite in my area. The only product I can find is from Sta-Green. If the bag does not say asbestos free, can it? be in there? I really don’t want to mess with this stuff if any level of asbestos is in it. Can I use a substitute for container tomatoes?

      I am new to gardening and I have been watching all of your videos to learn all of your methods and gain knowledge.

      Your videos give me me so much motivation to get out there and grow my own greens! Thank You!

      Love your vidoes John – I eat ’em up with a big spoon! Just want to say I? sure hope you use a good SPF (50 or better) on your exposed skin as you are out of doors SO MUCH – a hat would be good for you too. Sunglasses are a must to avoid Cataracts.

      Those prickly pear cactus is considered a noxious weed where I live in Australia.? All the country roads have hundreds of them growing wild. Can you show us how to harvest and use the fruit.

      Hey, I like the rough quality of the videoing, sounds on wind on the mic, and varying lighting conditions. In my opinion? you’re the best food gardening show on the web. Thanks John.

      7:35 “Prickley Pair” The pads, or napoles, are high in insoluble fiber, vitamins A, B? and C, beta carotene, iron, sodium and a full range of amino acids, the building blocks of all protein. In addition, the fibrous pectin lowers blood sugar in diabetics and lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol while leaving the HDL (good) cholesterol unchanged.

      Can someone please point to me to the video for a tower he said he showed how to build similar to the AgroTower in styrofoam?

    21. Tanfeliz Says:

      Hey John – You’ve inspired me! I live on almost an acre, have? a ton of unused garden space, never got around to supporting the grapes that are huge out back. I’m ashamed! Thanks for the ideas, I see how easy I can make this.

      I have almost no money right now, so I’m going to start with salad stuff in the ground, supporting the grapes with an old swingset frame I found. Thanks!

      try not to repeat useless information like “this is the farm lab” okay, that’s great. but we don’t need to hear it multiple times because its not information? we are looking for. 😛 youtube can replay if we miss something. 🙂 just a suggestion

      I just found the vertical tower pots in the? 99cent store today, but you would have to make your own holes.
