    I just figured out that small spaces are not a hindrance anymore when growing maximum yields of food. These brilliant ideas are somewhat an eye opener to every homeowner that you could able to grow your own healthy foods through this great way. Nice tutorials!

    I had the same problem last year with my neighbor. I had built a whole set up (not nearly as impressive as what you did with your small space) garden bed and our neighbor would scream at us at 6pm that we were being too loud and to 'cut the crap.' Some neighbors just don't understand haha. Their loss right!

    @rcote22401 It's not crutial to include a barrier – just an option. I think at the time of making this video I had read that it was a good idea, but the latest SFG book suggests a botomless box on the ground is fine.

    QUESTION: Why the need for the p;astic barrier if your raised beds are on the earth and not on a patio?

    I can just hear the neighbours!
    "What's he up to now Beryl?"
    "Oh let him be- he's a nut job- now here's a beer!"

    Best of luck with your ideas I'm off to have some plum wine! Ha ha!

    LOL! My Hero!

    Wireless was a cheap mic plugged into the Zoom H2 (now i've learned how to switch on the external mic power).

    Homing camera mount – would love one! Probably cost the earth though.

    I think we have the next Allan Titchmark here. lol

    How much did the wireless mic cost, are you going to get a homing camera mount next that follows you around the garden?

    Rick, did you control your camera with a remote? You really have this square foot gardening thing down to a science. I just finished reading the book, "Square Foot Gardening" By Mel Barthalomew. You are doing everything exactly the way he says to do it.

    It would be nice if you could get your neighbors interested in Square Foot Gardening. Mel Barthalomew was able to motivate the people in his area to start Square Foot Gardens, because they are maintenance free.

    With the right approach, and careful planning, 2 acres could produce a LOT of food.

    Cheers Paul – one of the disadvantages to a small garden – even with the wide angle, you cant push the camera far enough away!
