    I have a question. I am growing tomato plants from Seedlings and they are about 4 inches tall. My problem is that they have been 4 inches tall for about 2 months now. They will not grow bigger. I also had a problem with overwatering them but I’ve gotten better at that. Can you please tell me what to do?

  2. Tonio Yendis on May 7, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Wow! I have the same type bucket and it has EXACTLY EVERYTHING in it that you just showed except the mallet. That”s amazing or maybe just common-sense.

  3. Benja's Uber 1337 Hobby on May 7, 2021 at 12:28 am

    You are nice and organised 🙂 Those are all great tools 🙂 Thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. John Austin on May 7, 2021 at 12:30 am

    I bought a pair of the Folders micro clip pruners today. Easily and precisely removed the suckets from my tomatoes. Not sure how I got by without them. Thanks for the tip CaliKim.

    Fiskers really does make awesome tools and gadgets

  8. Drew on May 7, 2021 at 12:42 am

    I have the same gloves I love them as well 🙂

  9. Bettye Davis on May 7, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Great ideas Kim. I waste too much of my gardening time searching from bed to bed for missing tools. I am a senior so I really can’t afford the wasted energy. Thanks so much. I love your channel and always look forward to new segments.

  10. Pam Jones on May 7, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Definitely a must to have the right tool as well as a good made ones. I don’t like having to run all over the garden trying to find a miss placed tool. I have a bucket that transport thur out the garden with me. I don’t have the totally awesome tool belt. Thats going on my wish list. Thank you Kim for sharing excellent garden tips. I appreciate it immensely. Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

    Have you ever been to the Orange County fair grounds? Every year they have a pet expo. I know you use coco coir in your garden I thought I would share this tip with you. At the pet expo there are different room for different types of animals, and in the reptile room you can gat a 10 pound block of coco coir for $10! On a side note they also have a Mini farm there 24/7. If you go into one of the information buildings and ask about interning a plant for the oc fair than they will give you a free packet of seeds. Also if you didn’t know you can enter vegetables/fruits/ flower cuttings you grow. P.S. I love all of your videos.

    Nice gardening tool caddie Kim! Love that garden trawl 🙂 I have been through about 3 trawls because the bend and eventually break at the handle. Also love your gloves! I used them back when I did concert work in the US and the stand up to the wear and tear!

  13. Kudos Magazine on May 7, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Great tips! Thanks for sharing. I have a bucket I carry around too – not as nice as this, but it makes tips around the garden easier. Keep up the good content.

  14. Renee Regis on May 7, 2021 at 12:48 am

    very helpful. thanx

  15. Rick J on May 7, 2021 at 12:51 am

    As Always Thank You Kim! I keep a collapsable 4 wheeled cart in my garage that I load up with what I need for the time I’m going to spend in the garden. I’m going to have to check into those small needle nose type pruners! Also I use old coffee "cans" (plastic type with lid) to keep my Trifecta+ and Worm Castings in. They work well. They stand up better than the bags and keep the contents good and dry : )

    We are dedicated Fiskars’ customers as well–not just for our garden. My wife uses Fiskars products in her jewelry design and repair profession. One thing that I would put in that tool bag would be a bottle of our homemade essential oil bug repellent. I highly recommend lemon eucalyptus oil as the base for your own DIY repellent.

  17. Celine Bridges on May 7, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Hey CaliKim. What a fantastic video. That’s a great idea.. 😃I been carrying my garden things in the wheelbarrow..I like your tools .

  18. Janelle .L on May 7, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Oh that is cool. I need something like that because for a couple years now I’ve been using an old metal red wagon for all my hand tools and fertilizer. I think it’s time for an upgrade because my wagon is useful but I can’t get into those tight small areas. Thanks Kim, I enjoyed this video!!!

  19. Sandra on May 7, 2021 at 1:04 am

  20. CoolR on May 7, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Calikim how do you check your ph level do you check your ph level?

  21. snobunni426 on May 7, 2021 at 1:08 am

    Hi hi! Love the tool bag! I usually use my five gallon bucket to store my tools in but when I’m in the garden, I use one of those plant transporters from the store that starter plants come in. This year is my first year but due to work I was not able to start my own seeds. The transporter holds the plants and stuff and the bucket becomes a waste pail :).

  22. Jlmhl Taylor on May 7, 2021 at 1:09 am

    I really liked this video … now we just need a video on whats in your kitchen and how you keep your garage or building with all the garden equipment nice and neat. Lol sorry just wanting to be organized and have some ideas on what and how to store. Its nice to have things go hand in hand with your garden!

  23. Lisa Wade on May 7, 2021 at 1:10 am

    All my tools are fiskars, too.  I keep them in a garden hod along with my gloves and a small whisk broom.  I also keep a few hair ties in there and a whistle.  All my gardening stuff is orange so it coordinates.  I use orange bandanas in the garden, too, mostly to dry or dust off my hands or for a runny nose.  I also keep a pair of pliers to use for pulling up tree saplings that sprout from all the oak trees we have in our yard.  Great video!

  24. Tru_ Passion on May 7, 2021 at 1:11 am

    Thanks I was going to make the same video for beginners.I’m still a beginner and I get so excited when I see my plants do something.i just bought my second green house I Have a container garden

  25. city to country on May 7, 2021 at 1:12 am

    I did not know fiskers made garden tools. I use fiskers cutting tools for sewing and all of their products are great and last forever. I can’t wait to order mines.

  26. MIgardener on May 7, 2021 at 1:14 am

    The micro tip snips are my all time favorite

  27. Paul yates on May 7, 2021 at 1:16 am
