    I rake a small area so they use that and then I compost it in a compost bin that only gets used as fertilizer for shrubs and flowers.
    Heat your house in winter with hps lights and get free veg.

    Shoot them death with projectiles, compost the corpse. Repeat as necessary. You will be amazed how effective it is.

    I took care of my cat problems in one day with the Have A Heart Electric Fence.
    Put it along my fence where they were going under. They are all gone. Easy to install and set up.
    Problem solved.
    And after a few days I even turned it off and the cats have learned to stay away.
    It’s a safe and harmless way to keep them away.

    I find bird netting works really well to keep critters out of my garden and even keeps out the deer too. doesn't slow down the kids though ..

    Thank you once more for all that you do! I've watched two of your videos today The first one that I watched, the bell was unticked and I commented about that. I watched about three others videos on assorted topics and I came back to watch this video and again the bell was unticked. Man someone has a vendetta against your bell or I am cursed!?!

    Another way to find like-minded gardeners to go to local farmer's markets and talk with them. Some may not live real close, depending on the market rules and some may be big-ish farmers but it's a way to start networking. Also, the couple markets I ran had some back-yard farmers…good luck to you!

    If you don,t want the cat to shit in your garden, call the SPCA, government animal catcher or a pellet gun works very well.

    I put plastic forks, tines up, in my freshly-seeded soil. No cat wants to get poked in the butt with a fork! After the plants get established, I take the forks out and save them for the next round of direct-planting. I use this in my carrots and herbs all the time!

    Cats have been a blessing in my garden. When one has gopher, vole, and mouse problems, cat poop in the soil is the least of ones concern.

    The best way to keep cats out is getting some Tiger poo from the zoo or from tigerpoo.com.

    I had excellent results using a motion sensor sprinkler I bought online ($60) to keep raccoons from digging in my raised beds. Moist soil deters any animal from digging in any soil, period. Not to mention, the critters don't like getting sprayed. They'llewhere to dig in dry soil. I think the home improvement stores carry them online. Haven't had an issue since.

    +1 on the motion-activated sprinklers. Just hose the kitties down and they get the message real quick.

    John I loved the cat poop portion of your episode. I've never had a customer ask me that question believe it or not but when they do I'll be ready thanks to your exhaustive recommendations. I was cracking up during that whole conversation LOL. 😎😎😎

    I'm growing here in Vegas and my dog must have developed a taste for kale! she took out most of my kale plants and it looked like she didn't just tear them up but actually ate them. I've sense chicken wired off what is left and started a bunch more spinach and kale from seed on a windowsill with a heat pad.
    I picked up some of the 'Tomato Lady' soil from ViraGrow in North Las Vegas. Do you recommend this soil or no because of how they use chicken manure and peat moss? I didn't see any of their soils with coconut coir unfortunately.
    I almost picked up some of the Costco LED shoplight lights for supplemental lighting but noticed that the light spectrum is 4000k and to my knowledge this is not ideal. 6500k is better for blue spectrum veg growing.

    trap them and take the cat to the pca…so the owner go to pick them up time and time again until they learn to keep the cat inside.

    For those of you that read thes comment to add diffrent colour rocks to a water bottle and puncture holes on the cap; this makes a grate delivery system to add trace minerals to your plants. Red rocks for iron, green for copper, exedera

    I live in half moon bay California. It’s cold here most of the time and I wanted to try some things to see if they would grow. I got Malabar spinach, coffee and cherimoya to all grow here outdoor from seed with not too much difficulty. P.s. from using your practices I’m growing better pot than I ever have before. Don’t panic it’s organic!

    Easiest seed sprout for any seed is fresh soil a small plastic cup and a ziploc bag big enough to encase the whole cup. Sit on window sill…no need for heat. Check for mold..only way that can happen is if you did not keep sanitary or sterile conditions in or around the house. Guaranteed germination. And if house is too cold for a tropical.. keep it in a gallon ziplock bag till conditions arise for it to be introduced to the right conditions…the greenhouse affect keeps moisture in and heat. Keep citrus or other tropicals small inside a bigger cup encased in gallon ziplock bag.. it flourishes…if you have a big citrus tree or plant …they love being encased inside a green house inside the house and fruit better than with out extra encasing. Just check for mold depending on heat fluctuations and as always keep the area sterile.

    Put lots and lots of cuttings all over your plants so that cats, or dogs, can't get near them. And another benefit, you get new plants.
