    i would love to have lemon verbena growing in my yard, not much grows in zone 5a.
    although I can grow unedible mushrooms since it is so wet most of the year…..

    I'm addicted to your channels! 😀

    I want to know if I can use sea water to supplement our garden with trace minerals. I live right in front of the sea so I could get it for free :)

    The amendments i use are greensand, ground oyster shells, crushed oyster shells, dolomite lime (powdered), prilled fast-acting dolomite lime, blood meal, high N bird guano, feather meal un-steamed bone meal, bulb food, powdered soft rock phosphate, powdered gypsum, kelp meal, composted steer manure (this inoculates your mix with specialized microbeasties) azomite granular, granular humic acid ore, alfalfa meal, rock phosphate granular, organic rice (important for the good fungi in this soil mix)

    Rau ram, grows great. It is great in soup and salad. Go to an asian store and you'll see tens of different vegetable that can be grown pretty easilly. Malabar spinach and amaranth greens, and yam leafs are also good.

    Hi John. This year I have grown a large Mongolian Sunflower. Have you ever grown sunflowers and if so do you eat the seeds?

    For the shady grower, you might also try black nightshade (Solanum nigrum) aka, "sunberry", I often see them fruiting in dense shade in the Bay Area.

    Double dig under your beds before building them. Dig in organic material, cover with cardboard or wet newspaper, then put your beds over the top. This keeps down weeds, improves drainage, and allows roots to grow deeper.

    I saw in one of your recent vids that you regularly replace the soil in your raised beds with fresh compost. My question is what do you do with your old soil?

    My question is about clay soil and building a raised bed on top of it. Will water back up into your raised beds if you build them on top of clay soil. I understand about putting cardboard down and using landscaping cloth to keep weeds and grass from getting into your beds, but I am concerned about drainage. The water that goes through the raised bed and into the soil below the bed which is nothing but clay. Wont that clay soil hold the water and thus back it up into your bed? Help please!!!
