    non GMO soybean? where do they find that.., feel very unsure about a product in mass production that has ingredients which are very hard to find.

    Cultural groups, and cliques in society shun the idea of being a farmer.

    "ew you're a farmer? you're gross and poor hahahahahaha."

    @John, started growing my own lemons, cherry tomatoes and peppers indoors in my window seal, so far growing 4 lemons, 2 cherry tomatoes and 2 sweat peppers plants, hoping for 10 peppers per plant and 20 cherry tomatoes, will continue to grow these so i have ready supply, with 1 plant being planted each month, ensuring a steady supply for cherries and peppers, since plants are perennial and only grow one fruit before you need to replant them. 

    Thanx for posting your vidses, i'll post some pictures one of these days. 

    BTW I live in London, in Victorian house without garden, but have large bay windows up front and large 4x4ft window at the back with deep window seal, back window is south facing and already growing unadable plants there, a large Yuka plant, few plants I forgot the name of.

    Thanks for all of your videos John, I am a grewbie and I am learning a lot. I have a rain barrel and two raised garden beds above a clay area near the water table. I have woods nearby so It's difficult to get morning light as there is a small area that gets full light all day. I am enjoying eating RIGHT from my garden as I preen it and it really is something quite relaxing, and you still get to use your creativity. 
    I have millions of questions, but at this point I am still absorbing a lot so I will wait and continue to watch your videos. 
    One of my new goals would be to follow the idea of the place in Ohio that grew greens in the winter without a heater. I would like to convert one of my garden boxes to a small hoop house with a separate compost pile to help keep it all warm enough. I wonder if anyone had experimented with that idea on a smaller scale like a 6×3 garden bed. 
    One of the others would be dumping my bucket of rain water into the watering pipes without getting attacked my skeeters…sometimes I'll just throw the barrel at the garden box and run into the truck swatting them along the way. Is real citronella safe to grow with your food?
    Thanks for all of the info you give, and cheers to the vid about the invasion of your privacy, some don't realize what their rights are…only a few have paid attention to what has gone on these days. 
    Thanks again John, cheers and keep on growing :)

    I actually live in Chicago. That snow was buildup from a while ago, it's where the snow is piled to make way for the sidewalks and roads. Although it hasn't snowed in a while, it I still pretty chilly considering that it's May already.

    John, do you have a calendar of where you're going next? I'm sure I'm not the only one that would love to meet up with you, if you're into it. At least would love to hear you speak at your next appearance.

    Excellent show John.
    Imagination and the knowledge of plant needs is all it takes to convert a small space into a viable and productive garden.

    It's almost impossible to find Dr. Earth products where I live. THANKS JOHN for letting us know that we can order Dr. Earth products from True Value's website and have them shipped for free to our local stores! This is going to save me a TON of money (especially on shipping costs)!  :)

    I've been using cheap clear plastic I got at Lowes, it's worked for 2 seasons so far, still holding up well.

    The PVC is not stuck into the Fence post.  You cut a circular hole in the fench post material, where  you want your plant to sit, then You simpley cut  lengths of the round 3" or 4" PVC at an angle on one end and glue it into to position on the flat surface of the fence post.
    Search youtube, there are a couple of videos that show you how to do this.

    Dang, you could make a fortune by using all the window frame/door frames from burned out Detroit.  Probably no glass however, all the gang bangers, thugs, criminals broke the glass out.
