    So i had plants for a while now.
    I noticed how slow they were progressing.
    So from other videos i heard soil lacking calcium could precent plants from taking in nutrients.
    So i tried a calcium fix.
    Much to my surprise,
    It worked so well my strawberry plants got overwhelmed and started drinking the built up fertilizer and had burnt leaves.
    Overall though they are speeding up their growth to normal.
    From this lesson has taught me.
    With containers,
    You will need more than npk to be successful.
    I guess it is all trial and error

    I live in an apt but on the North side of the building. How or what can I plant by my door. I do have 1 4×4 raised bed that the complex arranged for those that want it as well but i like to have my mint handy which did well this summer. I live in OK.

    The craziest thing I ever did was use an antique swing set for a grape trellis. And they’re doing great. I also placed it to shade the pond. 👍

    Can you fill the bottom of pots with pieces of cardboard?

    Survivors of the Caterpillar attack, sounds like an old 50’s sci-fi film hehe

    If you put plastic or metal bottles below the potting mix, make sure that they are filled with water for ballast. Otherwise (if no drain holes), water from hose or rain will create a buoyant force that will float up the containers through the potting soil. this is similar to an empty swimming pool raising up when the ground water is high enough.. Simple physics.

    Super

    What size pot and depth would you recommend for growing sugarcane? Thanks 😊

  16. Dennis J. Varade SR on February 23, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    When insects attack plants they do it for 4 reasons. One food, two a drink, three lay eggs, or some (bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and others.) to pollinate. When you find an infestation it’s usually too late like the borers. If the plants are ready to collapse, just salvage whatever fruit that you can, then pull the plants out and do not compost. Send them out in the garbage or roadside pickup with their embedded eggs and next year’s family of bugs. Bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and others are needed in all gardens. On hot summer days the pollinators, Bees wasps, yellow jackets, and others may bite into your plants for something drink. To reduce this put coffee can cover’s filled with water and they will drink that.

    Ribet amat pak.
    Kalau di kampungku, lempar kayu di halaman, bisa jadi tanaman.
    Ajaib hidup di khatulistiwa.
    Masukkan di kulkas umbi kentang, ubi jalar, bawang, biji dan rimpang, bisa tumbuh tunas gondrong. Langsung jadi kebun kulkasnya kekekek..

    My raised bed my husband built is two feet deep two feet wide and twelve feet long . It has watering pipes that run along the bottom , with small holes through it and covered with pantyhose material so nothing blocks or gets in the pipes . . It has a drainage pipe that was four inches from bottom but we lowered it to two inches as it was retaining too much water . The whole inside was lined with pond liner too . I’m hoping it works well for the garlic we planted in the fall and the onion we will plant in spring 🤞

  40. Juan Garcia on February 23, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    I’ll going to watch your bell pepper video .thanks

  46. YouTube WantsToSilenceMe on February 23, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I’d like to be more self sufficient but I don’t see buying expensive soil to try to grow vegetables which are rather cheap in the grocery store as a worthwhile endeavor.

  47. Enid Eckert on February 23, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Brian, how many and what sized holes do you drill in the galvanized containers.

  48. Fran Andrews on February 23, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    I just bought several planting pots from Dollar Tree. Heads up it says made in China and no indication of a number on the bottom anywhere. Guess I won’t be planting onions in those. I should have looked before buying.

  49. Erik Johnson on February 23, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    yeah this summer I grew veggies in 14-20inch deep pots and when I pulled them out this year they all had roots at the bottom. I even had a 1 yard long by 20 inch by 20inch pot be completely rootbound by a few tomatoes and cucumbers…
