    Hi Kim, Thank you – a great informative video. Question: I'm thinking about growing some potatoes. Is it better to use one of these fabric bags with a window at the bottom or should I go with a wooden style container? I am also trying olla (ceramic) pots as part of my long term irrigation though I'm not 100% convinced that works so well when you're first starting your plants. I like how you plant the marigolds around your vegetables for insect control and color.

    I am going to try the zucchini. Limited success last year with summer squash with no trellis in a large pot. Maybe my mix was off. I do roughly 1/2 potting, 1/2 black coe. I don't make my own composite, and the local stores don't seem to sell it. Also live in Florida so day times are hot and muggy. Most of my potted veggies grow best in afternoon shade. Great video and info, and love watching to get new ideas.

    Love your videos! Last year I only grew tomatoes and bush beans, for some reason the zucchini didn't take. This year I am adding eggplant and sugar baby watermelon hope I have some luck! I also use the soft pots. I'm also going to start sweet potatoes for the first time in pots,lol, fingers crossed on that one. 🙂

    Can all this compost/soil be reused next year and can these pouches be reused and if so how many times? Thank you.

    Right now I can't afford the containers you are using. I will have to use the buckets. Do you any suggestions using the bucket?

    I just bought my sugar baby watermelon and my local nursery only had 10 and 30 gallon smart pots! Could I get away with either one of those or should I order the 20 gallon?

    I really like you video and youre garden is really awesome. Im just trying to figure out how to do all that with out paying double then what the fruit is worth. Last year i grew and paid for pots soil and such and yes its good hobby and love picking and eating fresh organic fruit i grow but i could have just baught the fruit for half price and built a hot rod for hobby. No offence. Of course my garden didnt do nearly as good as yours. So my real question to you is does it really pay off as for as money spent campared to the fruit you get or is it more of learning and just really enjoying it? You awesome and great video.

    You really only need a couple zipties at the top of your cages, instead of trying to weave the metal stakes in. Zipties snip very easy should you want to dismantle later after harvest. You do fantastic tutorials, and inspire many thousands of people.

    Shredded branches with leaves makes a great mulch, and all soil benefits from a great covering.

    Growing each of those you mentioned in large containers, and the keys are good soil and plenty of moisture, and ample sun. The grow pots look like a nice way to container grow.

    Hello! Thanks for the tidbits. I have a question. I planted quite a few vegetables with organic soil & peat moss. However, I haven’t added the fertilizer as of yet. Can I add it afterwards, or should I remove the plant (just planted about a week ago) and add the fertilizer and worm castings? What are your thoughts. Fran

    I have a small yard. I'm concerned if I sit this on my porch, would it stain? I don't want to place this directly on the ground due to this neighborhood was once industrial property. I don't want to risk ingesting something toxic. What do you suggest I place this Smart Pot on?
