    John, huge fan! Can you share a website, or email address, for questions? The seed companies…. hide.

    Love the subtropical reports, John. I retired last November, amateur vegetable gardener, "Farmer Bob," in my under quarter-ac. Florida homesite. Trying not to get discouraged this summer, things dying back, but did have a good summer harvest. Keep up the good work! Vero Beach, FL

    Ask for a tour of the Florida Gulf Coast University Student Food Forest next time you are in the Fort Myers area. Or let me know and I will set you up.

    Passion vine attracts butterflies and the caterpillars will chew on the leaves. A large passion vine will come back even stronger after being stripped by caterpillars. Then the fruit will be better, and the butterflies beautiful. Add a passion fruit, move the caterpillars to that one and share with them.

    Katuk that grows in south Florida is so different, the Katuk that grows in Malaysia are much greener.

    ok at :15 John, "plopped down like cookie cutters" – again its sarcastic sounding, and ur neighborhood is also plopped down like cookie cutter even tho its home not condos. Im sorry but u always come across sarcastic, like ur picking on the current situation. Not cool. As long as ur neighbor can see u poopin – ur cookie cutter cutter too – uhless u have those tree collards blocking it………….

    Fruit trees take awhile to get established. I have some Figs in Blueberries in my home garden. First year with them and my first year gardening they are making it ok. Anyone have any tips for BlueBerries in containers I think mine have Tomato Ring Spot disease.

    LOL!! I was just messing with u, but thanks for schooling. Maybe you can place an ad and include stroking as an added bonus!!! :)

    There is a reason for the stroking.. It is scientifically proven that stroking plants stimulates their metabolism and increase their chlorophyll content. I was just trying to help my friends plant out.. and I think I just enjoy the stimulation as well.. or maybe the problem is that I'm single.. Any single girls out there that can help a guy out?

    hi john, enjoyed ur video as always. Interesting to see a variegated katook. My 1st plant that i grew when i was 4-5 yrs old was actually a katuuk. Since your friend likes a garden which can take care of much of itself, may i also suggest growing the common purslane (Portulaca oleracea). He/ she can try the golden/goldberg variety which grows more upright. Im growing the ordinary variety which really thrives in our tropical climate. And they partically reseed and take care of themselves.

    Nothing makes me laugh more than seeing you stroking various plants. Just when I almost forgot about you with that Amaranth, you went ahead and did it all over again with the monstera deliciosa. Thanks for the videos, and thanks for making me laugh.
