    Are all bugs good for the garden including coach roaches? We have american coach roaches in our yard.

    Awesome video Jake! Gardening truly is a constant learning curve. Observe the trees and plants and let them tell you what they need is the best. No one solution fits all, it is always a mix of methods to make things work, especially if one grow as diverse as you do. Happy Gardening! Hope the Dauben Tropical Water Lily I brought over survived the curious school of koi~ 😃

    My experience with backyard fruit trees in Texas is similar to Jake's. My mature trees can do fine with infrequent and deep watering (or no watering at all), but some of the very young trees are surprisingly needy. The young persimmons and apricots in particular needed daily watering this summer in order to avoid having drooping leaves in the afternoon, despite thick mulch cover.

    How do you add the mushroom bubbler?  This is an excellent idea

    what I do is watering all the plants and not changed the frequency for summer three times (in sunset,middle of the day, and sunrise) Then eventually I reduced to two times at the end of summer.For winter too but the duration of water flood will be reduced in winter. When you break the frequency the plant need will be more because it's adapted to time of watering more than amount. What do you think about it?

    Excellent video. I'm in a low desert and garden similarly… tho your garden is more productive. You were very informative. I'll watch this one a few times to see if I can improve productivity.

    Mint is invasive but it needs frequent rain. Believe me it'll never become invasive in Arizona.

    In Corpus Christi Texas there is about 70% humidity every day so you don't have to water plants much plus Corpus gets between 25" and 32" of rain per year which with the humidity is enough rain for tropicals

    I know you have to water your trees almost daily because of the heat or they'll die but watering them daily can still give them fungus and root rot even if its 200 degrees

    Thanks Jake! Another great video, straight to the point and well presented. You're an inspiration to so many people. I hope Justin Trudeau is aware of your videos. I'm sure he'd be proud of that the BC boy is doing at Longevity Gardens. 🇨🇦💪🏼🌲

    Another awesome video Jake, thanks for sharing!  One question, what do you use (if any) on your lemon (citruses in general) to prevent the leaf miner?  I appreciate your input/B

    i think leaf drooping is more of a hot roots thing, it is sourounded by a brick oven lol!

    Great to see a new video Jake, I am really interested in your tropical trees like your mangoes, longan, lychees, jaboticaba, and barbados cherry. Could you do a tour video of those later. I am trying to get mine going and so I really like to see how you take care of them and how they are doing. Thanks and I look forward to your VeganAthlete videos.

    Have you ever tried the clay pot watering method, where you bury a clay pot up to the neck pour water in it then have a loose lid on the pot so it waters throughout.

    Great advice Jake for us in drought ridden california zone 9b. I need to water my young trees more often I think. I'm seeing great results with woodchips & amendments. I'm curious ,what's that crazy sounding bird I hear in the background?

    Very good video, Jake! Thanks! I have a question. You live in a desert climate, and spider mites love the heat. Do you have spider mites? I've got them, and they are sucking up the moisture from the leaves. What do you recommend to control the spider mites? Keep up the good work! 👍
