    I came here to see how to build a raised garden but too bad this guy is making raised gahdens instead.

    Great video.. 2 thumbs up for spending time with your kids and teaching them and others how to create a raised vegetable garden!

  4. Alec Acevedo on June 18, 2021 at 1:29 am

    So many wrongs here. First off why does he have safety glasses but the kids dont? Second if your putting a useless 2 x4 in the corner then you should probably screw it off before hacking it off with a sawzall.

    Is this his family?

  8. Francis Kowalski on June 18, 2021 at 1:42 am

    When he said use grass clippings to keep the weeds out I thought do you know
    many seeds are in there from weeds?

  9. Jason K on June 18, 2021 at 1:42 am

    I would like to see these guys building this project in the rocky limestone soil of Texas.

  12. Keith Paslean on June 18, 2021 at 1:46 am

    this guy has never pronounced an R in his life

  13. wholeNwon on June 18, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Expensive potting soil or cheap straw bales?

  14. TheScoobysnack08 on June 18, 2021 at 1:49 am

    Never heard of using grass clippings for mulch.

  15. James Marks on June 18, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Did anyone else get frustrated thinking about having to drive 3 inch philips head screws?

  16. bbtank3000 on June 18, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Next episode those kids will be installing a new roof.

  17. Corey Grua on June 18, 2021 at 1:53 am

    Roger is goooood. He knows his stuff; a lot of stuff. Tomatoes are just an example. Plus he knows how to teach young people who have to learn somehow. The earlier the better. In addition, we all have accents. Just ask a Brit.

  18. Jolly P on June 18, 2021 at 1:55 am

    Those kids will remember this for life. Good that he made them help him instead of just watching.

  19. SmilingKnight on June 18, 2021 at 1:55 am

    not sure why to add the soil in 1st before putting up the 4th side.

  21. Brian Franey Sr. on June 18, 2021 at 1:56 am

  32. Randy Leiter on June 18, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Getting your hands on 2” thick cedar boards 12’ long by 8’ish in wide is easier said than found.

  33. Keith Paslean on June 18, 2021 at 2:06 am

    "Get the screw gun" 🤣😂😂😂

  34. Nolan Dionne on June 18, 2021 at 2:07 am

    ATOH is usually pretty wholesome content, but with that lovely cedar and the kids, this one classifies as Wicked Wholesome.

  35. Christian Alvarez on June 18, 2021 at 2:07 am

    Please for the love of God, pre drill

  36. leojoshua21 on June 18, 2021 at 2:08 am

  41. Ramona Mattioni on June 18, 2021 at 2:14 am

    I recommend Woodglut to every beginner and not only.

  42. galamonkey on June 18, 2021 at 2:15 am

    If I could afford to buy multiple 2" thick, 10′ long solid cedar boards, Id just buy a commercial farm instead.

  43. Respawn Restricted on June 18, 2021 at 2:16 am

    Ain’t no way im.holding a screw for a kid

  44. Brian Franey Sr. on June 18, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Cedar! What did this thing cost? Like 500 bucks? To grow 50 bucks worth of tomatoes?

  45. Mark Carter on June 18, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Ricky’s a genius, “That’ll give it even better drainage.” #goingplaces
