The Basics of Greenhouse Gardening

Hi I’m Jeff King. My job is to raise vegetables for the 300 people living at the Woodcrest Bruderhof in Rifton, NY. I’ll be doing a series of videos about our garden – things we’ve learned that work and things that don’t. We start out in the greenhouse. Let me know what you think.

To see the whole series, watch the playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuvqptVzmFY&list=PLok9NKiaKB47e2D0j8SNY8jqqW3rCzTqn&index=3

Wondering what the Bruderhof is? We’re a bunch of families and children, singles and older people living together in intentional Christian community. We share our money, possessions, and try to live our lives like the first Christians as described in the Acts of the Apostles. For more, check out our website at https://www.bruderhof.com or watch this video here: https://youtu.be/9ohC8cEcdOE

    There also so many spiritual lessons you can learn from gardening.

    I never knew that plants can get diseases from over watering

    I too am tender and not ready for harsh conditions

  14. Garl Jo'ens on February 24, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I find your way of talking very soothing.

  15. M Richards on February 24, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I loved the down-to-earth advice, authenticity & decency of this presenter. After years of gardening, I realize why my seedlings grew ‘leggy’ or were given too much heat. All this in these few minutes. Thank you!

    I never knew that plants could get diseases from soaking them too much

  21. vh2 on February 24, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Very good information but the music is distracting. Good for intros and for changing location or subject but annoying otherwise.

  22. rusty Shackleferd on February 24, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Why transplants? Why not just start in the plug tray?

  23. Rocky Phillips on February 24, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    good job son…..

    Thank you for taking the time to go over some aspects of greenhouse growing.  I live in Eastern Pa., zone 6, just got the hoops of my greenhouse up and can’t wait to learn more about how to set it up for maximum growth and ease of use.Thank you again-

  30. Age Of Decadence on February 24, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I absolutely love how genuine you know that guy and his video production team is. Straight talk. Obviously not interested in anything other than giving out good information. 👌
    I dig it

    Thank you so much for your video. This was very helpful for me. I am just starting out and I am the proud owner of a new greenhouse. Much smaller than your community one but it will work great for my family. Thank you for your knowledge and sharing.

    Music really is a distraction
