    How did we lose all that knowledge and go so far away from nature?

  2. Homestead Hopeful on May 8, 2021 at 12:22 am

    I’m super excited to try all these new to me ways to use marigolds. I’m starting several indoors this year so that they will bloom earlier.

  3. Linda Arnold on May 8, 2021 at 12:23 am

    I always plant Marigolds in my vegetable garden to deter deer and pests and it really works. Thank you for providing us with other ways to use them and in our diets. I am going to try it!

  4. Adriana Ortiz on May 8, 2021 at 12:23 am

    I’ve recently been coming to the realization that marigolds are my favorite flower, and I didn’t even know all this! So excited to start exploring the news ways to use my marigold plants out on my patio 🙂

  5. Eva Maggard on May 8, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Have grown Marigolds for years…. I didn’t know you could eat them…"

  6. Interior Design Revealed on May 8, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Took 5:40 to get to the topic of the video… why so long to get to good information?

  7. Canadian City and Village on May 8, 2021 at 12:29 am

    love it

  8. Collen Rose on May 8, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Yes. I will definitely be planting some marigolds. Thank you & God bless.

  9. Charlie Norris on May 8, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Can’t wait to try the petals in my eggs. What a great idea. Thanks!

  10. Mirela Popescu on May 8, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Super ideas! Thank you!

  11. lynda head on May 8, 2021 at 12:33 am

    I love edible flowers. I use a lot of Nasturtiums. Are all variety of Marigolds edible?

  12. Wandering Nature on May 8, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Praise God I love your wonderful channel♥️♥️♥️

  13. Fred Crane on May 8, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Those huge zucchini blossoms are incredible stuffed with mozzarella , breaded, and fried.

  14. Somsong Charoenpon on May 8, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Awesome, I just planted some can’t wait to harvest some.

  15. Salem Thorup on May 8, 2021 at 12:36 am

    The real trick will be if you can teach other women how to wear white and do gardening. Lol. I can’t wear white even if I don’t garden.

  16. Linda Clayton on May 8, 2021 at 12:43 am


  17. Debbie Blakley on May 8, 2021 at 12:43 am

    What do Marigold peddles taste like? Can you make jelly with them?

  18. Marti Bova on May 8, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Stacy….Thank You…… I think I wore a smile across my face during this video…

    I now remember my Grandmother using Flowers in dishes… You bring much needed joy….Bless you!

  19. Esma Crafts on May 8, 2021 at 12:44 am

    Interesting.. I thought marigolds are not edible? I only plant them for insect repellant in my garden…
    Or just to be sure.. Are there poisonous types?

  20. Carol M on May 8, 2021 at 12:44 am

    Greetings y’all!🥰 Yes, I sure did learn something and that is that flowers🌸🌻🌼🌺are not just Beautiful but they are also Healthy!😁. Thank you Stacy!🥰. 💕Always, Carol

  21. Robert Steen on May 8, 2021 at 12:47 am

    I am just learning about marigolds as a companion plant to my peppers and tomatoes, I will definitely use them in my salads.

  22. Sharon Hay on May 8, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Thanks. I’m planting Marigolds for the first time this year. Do you recommend any other flowers for the garden? I heard dill was good to have.

  23. Lisa Moyer-Moran on May 8, 2021 at 12:48 am

    I’ll try it!

  24. gary meyers on May 8, 2021 at 12:49 am

    WOW! Did not know about this.

  25. Elle Gardener on May 8, 2021 at 12:50 am

    People who dislike the video are zombies. Coz they hate the plants.

  26. Tina Coleman on May 8, 2021 at 12:50 am

  27. Heskett Haven Farm on May 8, 2021 at 12:54 am

    I am planning on adding marigolds and nasturtiums to my garden this year.

  28. Jean Roeder on May 8, 2021 at 12:55 am

    Merigold have always been my favorite flower and now I know what I can do with them besides enjoying their beauty, thank you for sharing.

  29. Amy Bear on May 8, 2021 at 12:55 am

    Love these videos. Will be growing a ton of marigold in my garden. Thank u for showing so many wonderful uses!

  30. Lucky Penny on May 8, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Had no idea! I have so many marigolds! Thank you!

  31. Spring Manju on May 8, 2021 at 12:59 am

    love your show.. your food your growing is amazing. I grew the best marigold when I grew it next to my tomatoes . companion gardening works. I will try some of your marigold ideas for cooking, especially the tea idea.

  32. faniefaze on May 8, 2021 at 1:01 am

    Makes a good chicken fodder too, along with nasturtium and comfrey.

  33. Lidia Soares on May 8, 2021 at 1:01 am

    Wow! I remember when I was about 6 or 7, I was given a rice porridge cooked with young marigold leaves! they tasted and smelled like flowers, but I enjoyed eating them! Now I grow them in my garden and was tempted to try them again but lacked the courage until now! Thanks for educating us about the use and benefits of marigold. Cheers!

  34. bvcmargie on May 8, 2021 at 1:01 am

    Wow! I learned a lot!! Looking forward to finding the zucchini you showed in the beginning. Dandelions are wonderful! Our Bearded Dragon loves them…almost exclusively…which we know isn’t best for her so variety it is 😉

  35. A L on May 8, 2021 at 1:02 am

    Thanx for letting for know. Going to try it!!

  36. Valerie Farquharson on May 8, 2021 at 1:03 am

  37. Karol Matson on May 8, 2021 at 1:04 am

    I will try it.

  38. shikha lemuel on May 8, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Slugs LOVE merigolds. I learned the hard way…NEVER put around your gardens of any kind. They attract the slugs and they will devour everything you have. I plant zinnias instead.

  39. Ron Macdougall on May 8, 2021 at 1:07 am

    Awesome vid

  40. Mecia Renee on May 8, 2021 at 1:08 am

    This has always been my dream to live off grid grow and make everything. Just the way God intended! Where do you find a man like that is my question? You guys are Absolutely awesome! Thanks for all the wonderful things you’re teaching us!!

  41. Natarajan Sukumar on May 8, 2021 at 1:09 am

    Loved it.
    I wanted to follow-up on your comment about planting zucchini in July. Which part of US do you live? I live in Toronto..will it work here near Toronto

  42. Cathy Strozeski on May 8, 2021 at 1:09 am

    I Love this ! I just planted some in my flowerbed. Thank you. Love watching your videos. 🙂

  43. Onexpresso Cafe on May 8, 2021 at 1:10 am

    Use it to color your butter too. There are many eatable flowers, just use organic roses, nasterums, pansies, lavender, sun flowers….

  44. Gail Dunn on May 8, 2021 at 1:11 am

    I wish you would list in your text the name of the items you speak of the squash in particular. My hearing is very good.

  45. Jay Sellers on May 8, 2021 at 1:12 am

    DOUGLAS! How’s them ribs?

  46. Dawn Baker on May 8, 2021 at 1:14 am

    Thank you for explaining about marigolds. I don’t know anything about them and how to use them. So great of you share your information. Really appreciate it. Thanks

  48. HeatherC BC on May 8, 2021 at 1:16 am

    I do not like the look of marigolds. So I’ve never grown them. I’ve always known that they are beneficial, but it was only just this year I decided to buck up and buy some seeds to plant throughout my raised beds. I had no idea they were edible though! Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge!

  49. Jennifer Mastin on May 8, 2021 at 1:18 am

    I absolutely did!! Thank you so much. HOW DID YPU GET YOUR MARIGOLDS TO BLOOM SO BIG?

  50. Marilyn Manuel on May 8, 2021 at 1:19 am

    Thank you!! I am going to start for sure!! I have some growing and they are beautiful.. now to find out they are also tasty is a win win!!
