    Love her eclectic garden! We have a small urban garden and love to grow lots of food too… I do wish we had a greenhouse to have more seedlings on the go too… we also can up what we grow to help last us through the winter.

    Hopefully some nice gardening inspiration for us in these dark winter days😀 I really enjoyed visiting Becky’s incredible garden back in the summer! Thank you so much for watching and you can follow Becky on Instagram at https://instagram.com/sow_much_more?igshid=11a6aofcctt2o 🌱

  14. Kate Lock on March 13, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Really curious about how much veg comes out of gardening… seems like a short harvest time, so preserving and canning etc but I’m confused how you feed a family on that. Honestly curious. Thanks!

  15. den midds on March 13, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    120mtr² what’s that in plain old british measurement please. My garden is approx 100×20 foot

  22. John Fletcher on March 13, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    You did not teach anything about garden,all you did Bragg about your university and lecture us on your beliefs ,

  23. FY30 on March 13, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Beautiful garden. How is she keeping a turtle and chicken in the garden? Don’t they destroy the plants? I would love those 2 ❤️.

    I really appreciate this message and encouragement to grow, to learn, and to reduce our footprint. I’m going to need to see some of this Instagram! So excited for gardening to start! Thanks for feeding me in the meantime. 😁😉

  31. Lolitabonita on March 13, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    love the info but please please kill the annoying music while u are talking 🙂

  32. Steve Southward on March 13, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Becky you are inspiring xx

  33. Maria Gibbons on March 13, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    What is the best position for the bins. Sunny or shaded spot. I understand needs to get hot? I’m from Ireland and have two with an ‘open roof’ but hardly gets decomposed even if damp. Should I change them to sunnier spots?

  34. Delightful Souvenirs on March 13, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Thank you for sharing that. It was inspiring. I’m looking forward to the next growing season and implement some of the tips and techniques I’ve been learning here. BTW i purchased your book online and I just received it today. It’s exciting.

  36. Zee's World on March 13, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    I only want a one room to live in and big garden.. currently not happening but that’s the dream… 🙂 ☺️ I try to grow what I can.. in small space we have

  37. bradley meacham on March 13, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I enjoyed the video a lot! I have been trying to search for a YouTube video like yours that really breaks down the stuff in this vid. 👌 🧑‍⚕️Your content really is similar to the content from this awesome med student Doctor Ethan. Dr’s videos are really useful and I really learned a lot for my midterms. He is an insightful health enthusiast on YouTube and he explains wellness and health symptoms.

    I recommend you watch his channel out and give Doctor Ethan a subscribe! ➡️ #DrEthanNews

  38. Marvelous Moge on March 13, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    This makes me feel inspired for the upcoming garden season

  39. naturalista 101 on March 13, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Inspirational…. determined to grow my own food… have already started some seedlings indoors in January… Do a YouTube Channel please… it would help us newbies a lot

  40. PA Stevens on March 13, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Great video. I agree, she should have her own youtube channel. I would love to see a plan of her garden, to see how it all fits together.

  41. Oscar on March 13, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    7:50 Actually, it’s a common misconception that organic food is somehow more nutritious than conventional grown food. In 200+ studies that have researched organic vs conventional food in the lab the only substence that was more plentiful in organic food than conventional food was e.coli and salmonella. So in terms of fruit and veggies, organic food is a waste of money.

    Personally, I do however buy organic and free-ranging meat due to the animals being treated more humanely and without routinely being given antibiotics.

    Back to nutrients in vegetables and fruit though. If you want a little bit more nutritious food you could buy locally produced food which has been proven to contain a little more nutrients due to them being harvested closer to ripening. And mainly stay away from processed foods, because diet is key if you want nutritious food (not nessesary organic).

    I always remember that old character that used to be on Gardeners Question Time and every answer he gave started with the words, "I think the answer lies in the soil", how right he was.

  43. Evelyn Joy on March 13, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    I love this garden!!! 😍

  44. Sarah Lynett on March 13, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Hi, I am building several high raised beds and looking for cheap ways to pad them out. I’ve cut down 3x6ft conifer trees, could I use these?

  47. Donna Marie Harris on March 13, 2021 at 11:24 pm
