      4:54 John, do you feel comfortable in these socks? At the end of the video you were driving a car, so I’m just wondering can you drive in this socks too? I see people use them jogging and other fitness activities. Do you like them? Your videos are great as always! I’ve subscribed and now working down the list … want to see all of them :o)

      moringga roots really easy. just stick them in the ground and they’ll grow just about anywhere. great in soups, with chicken and seafood.

      You can grow moringa in frost and even colder if you cut it back and pile straw over the bottom part of the trunk. It will come back in the sping. Found this out from a guy growing it in North Carolina in ground.

      Hi John!
      i hear many ways to choose good food to eat. food that is closest to nature, raw and organic. looking back in time and comparing to nowadays, many more foods are unnatural in the world today. then i always hear, “humans are expected to live longer nowadays compared to back then.” in your opinion, is this because the health treatments and medicines are better in today’s society, or does this have something to do with the nutrients in the majority of food?
      Thanks for the great information

    15. growingyourgreens Says:

      There are many reasons for living longer. Living longer is not necessarily living BETTER. You can live long, but be in a nursing home with a very poor QUALITY of life. Many of the “living” longer nowdays has to do with western medicine. Living Long and Living Healthy is best. The old addage is true.. you are what you eat.. Most people eat “junk” and “processed” food.. So what are they? We should all eat the freshest and highest quality food as possible for the highest quality of life.

      My neighbor throw away picnic coolers often I use them the same way as an Earth or Global Box. It’s a great way of reusing them for another purpose beside landfill in dump sites. I use them for my herbal boxes. I might grow tomatoes in them.

      Love his special garden. Potting mix is lighter because it’s a blend of compose material and perlite. Love that mircle grow myself. Buy it when it’s onsale.

      Neat idea for herbs and vegetables; did you also cover the can with smaller hole so no large dirt falls into the water?
