    We recently converted part of our alfalfa field into a market garden. How can I keep the deer and rabbits out? Thank You!

    About the rain and heat – I’m in north central Oklahoma. Have experienced over 15 inches of rain over the last 30 days. I think I’ve watered once during that time. Not experiencing any losses yet, but the slugs and other pests are becoming an issue as it warms up. Did I mention the temps? It’s been unseasonably cool this year. It’s 5/29 and SIXTY EIGHT DEGREES at 3 pm right now. I transplanted my tomatoes on 4/17 – temps were in the upper 30’s. They weren’t too happy about it.

    Nutgrass or anything you don't want growing? Just cover with some soaked cardboard and some mulch or dirt to hold it down. No sun, dead weeds. Plus the dead stuff and cardboard will help feed the soil. Plus, plus. 😉

    Always relevant to my needs and questions. Do I owe you anything for the schooling?

    I’m in central Louisiana and I am just getting my garden planted. I have a 30 ft raised bed that I was able to plant my tomatoes in. The in ground garden has been too wet here.

    Been hoping for a video on storing. I have a metal covered, 30 x 50 pole barn, with a ridge vent, that is used for tractor, implements and so forth. There is plenty of room for a veggie storage rack but I'm concerned about lack of airflow. One positive note, the western side is shaded by tall pines and oaks. Are your pole barns covered with a material that allows air to flow through the building? Or are you just saying the vegetables need plenty of room and to not be touching?

    It's been a very wet season in the Piney Woods of Texas

    When storing potatoes for seed for next years crop, should you take off any sprouts that emerge months before time to plant or just let them grow and trim the sprouts before planting.

    I use an Orbit mechanical hose timer with each of the three regulator-filter systems I use. The Orbits are okay and will last two or three years before needing replacement.

    They do have a few problems. If you over tighten the female fitting side you can crack the plastic. This can temporarily fixed by putting a hose clamp or a zip tie around the fitting. With use the timer mechanism slows and will hang up. It's not programmable.

    Great show! Keep up the good work. I learn more from the two of you than any book I've got. Many Thanks.

    Was hoping you'd mention the Fall garden crops… brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, etc,
    Also ROOT crops, like carrots, beets, turnips, etc. Will you be coming out with another video on these?

    My compost has a bunch of chicken manure and pine shavings(chicken coop bedding). It also gets kitchen scraps leaves and grass clippings. Will the pine shavings and manure put the nitrogen levels too high for my furrow?

    Good stuff guys! Travis you better be careful talking about your mother in law! Nothing worse than a mother in laws kiss except her scorn! 😂
    Trying to plan my fall garden and want to know if you could share about all the different families of plants so I can plan my rotation.

    I've struggled this year getting cucumbers and squash started. I had a few hills of stonewalls survive from my first planting. I noticed tonight they are starting to put on now, I was amazed at the number of little cucumbers coming on. Gives me hope for the others I have coming up now! I've been mixing the standard planting of straight 8 cucumbers and stonewalls in what I've been planting. I'm interested in seeing the difference. We are finally starting to dry out here in Arkansas. Another great video, I enjoy coming in from the garden on Thursday evenings and catching row by row. Thanks!

    Great video, packed with lots of information about storage. I live in Northeast Oklahoma and we are drowning in water. Rivers have overflowed and farmers this week have been flooded out.

    LOL, very few basements here in Florida….shallow spots here become pools, bogs or swamps." As for storing surplus veggies in the fridge, vented bags or FoodSaver storage bins work for me, however, anything that even looks like it won't last another week gets canned, pickled or dehydrated. I can keep taters and onions in a dry place for a while, but it's so humid here that things either sprout or rot after a while. Taters get canned; onions get dehydrated and vacu-sealed in mason jars.
