    Enfouir du bois pour faire de l'humus n'est pas une très bonne solution!!!…., plutôt paille, branches, feuillages et autres à décomposition rapide… faire un trou grand et profond 1m3 x 1m profondeur…. produits + terre + eau pour six mois!!!!…. planter arbre ensuite avec un tuyau
    de 10cm pvc pour envoyer l'eau au fond ….. faire ombrage…. et prier Dieu… Au revoir..

    How has your Avocodo tree been doing since you planted it? I got an Arizona Avocodo from Shamas too last year but it did not make it through the summer even though we planted it near a big tree to shade it in the afternoons. The morning sunlight proved to be just as bad as the afternoon sun because it burned the trunk and killed the tree.

    A lot of work. Just a gent I put an old piece of pipe in my hokes the I can water down to the roots and not as much on the top prevents evaporation loss.

    So cool what you all can grow down there! We are in the Prescott area of Arizona. I always joke to have a farm down there and up here and you could pretty much grow all your own food, between the climate and elevations 😉

    For native soil, is that clay?

    Garry Cole

    (June 24, 2018 - 10:43 pm)

    Nothing wrong with making the hole large, just add more organic matter. Also you guys have sandy soil, don't bury the tree too deep because it will sink with time.

    How well do the avocado trees grow, and how long before they produce fruit?

    Don't know if someone told you already or you already know. You need 2 avocado trees male and female to get avocados. Just thought I'd let you know. Keep up the videos! You guys are doing great!

    I really love you guys and your pioneering spirit!!!! You are a great communicator.

    Considering your planting techniques though, I would be greatly interested to know how long these trees live. NO need to dig a hole that big. Secondly, if you fill the hole with water as you back fill, you get water to the part of the plant that needs it most, the roots. What I would like to have seen was your buddy Jake come over and give you tutorials in planting. That way, you lean on his expertise and we get to see 'start to finish', his permaculture technique. Keep up the good work!!

    I'm a complete gardening/farming idiot but we bought a house with a mature avocado tree in the back garden and if I imagine putting it where you planted your baby avocado tree, it would easily cover your entire grey-water ditch in permanent shade. I'm not sure what effect this lack of sunlight would have on the trees you planted in the corners. If citrus trees need a lot of sunlight and it's not too late, perhaps you might do well to create a second grey-water ditch and transplant the avocado tree there.

    You guys are living the dream – no water, electricity, or maybe huge mortgage bills. We live at 6500 feet elevation in New Mexico with clay soil and most of our trees didn't survive the winter or windy spring. Best of luck to you guys.

    If you can plant any more I have one yr old Native Pecan trees.. We have Pecan orchard in East Texas… I will be happy to send to you …Free… They love sand we live right on the Red River…

    I thought I saw you with a fence post auger in a previous video. I think that would have worked better for digging those holes. It would lossen the dirt without making the hole too big.

    Also, I live in Florida so I am amazed that you can dig a 3 foot hole and it is dry all the way down. I've been here in FL for 35 yrs now and even during our worst drought I think it was still only 8 inches to moisture.

    You guys have done a hell of a job ! Your place looks better with more green on it just think of how it will look in 5 years from now and hey if the Jews can do in their country we can do it here, we get much more rain they do Iv been to the Middle East for years.You give me many idea's thanks guys ! And you do know you can grow nut barring trees .

    I'm surprised you aren't planting some Moringa trees. That would be good shade and they grow monsterously fast and big. Jake has tons of them on his place. But great work you guys! Hi from East Mesa, near Phoenix.

    we have ten 4 feet x 16 feet of beds of earth worms in our back yard in San Antonio, TX. In the past two years the worms have produced over one hundred 5 gallon barrels of worm castings. We feed them pulp from a juice bar, spent beer grain from a small brewer and coffee and tee grounds along with rotten vegetables from a grocery store and we run through an outside sink garbage disposal. We also get all the pulp that a juice bar can produce and all of the food for the worms is free.

    WOOPS!!! Also remember guys don't forget to soak your root balls with lots of water as you plant and before you cover all over use the lots of water retaining soaked coconut husks into mix and top off with heavy layers of wood chips for heat protection…soak with heavy water dosage when first establishing plants or else plants will be doomed from the start. Take a look at Jakes vids to see how he does it, seems to me that you'd . missed some very important steps!! keep up the excellent work!

    Karla Emondt

    (June 24, 2018 - 10:43 pm)

    Remember to use the very important water retaining coconut husks guys! Im lovin it all and you are both so inspiring, positive, energetic, focused and your get her done attitudes just kick big ass!!!
    keep up the excellent work!! Blessings abundance and everything your hearts desire!!! Namaste ❤

    Don't you think the trees are a little to close to the house?

    (June 24, 2018 - 10:43 pm)

    will be interesting to see if after these trees mature and start to produce fruit….if you were able to get the fruit before the squirrels and birds demolished them…..a battle with the local wildlife !

    Some of those citrus trees will probably put out more than you can eat! My mom has a satsuma tree and they consumed and gave neighbors 300# of fruit and then had a food pantry pick and use the rest which was another 300#!! It was a great year! Would love an avocado tree. Looks great guys!

    Great stuff. I just bought a place in Hereford and am looking at putting in fruit trees to be watered via grey water. This was helpful. Suggestion if you haven't already heard this already – windsock on your mic will help on the wind noise. Enjoy your vids plz keep posting.

    On the Avocado tree, wouldn't it be best to have two trees to allow for cross-pollination?

    Great job. What is the large rectangle thing at the start of your aerial? In the drone film at the end. It's a fair way from the house and looks quite large.

    The music at the start is awful. Not nice listening and distracting from watching you.
