    John Kohler said oranges probably won’t do to well in the desert. He couldn’t be more wrong on that one. He does know a hell of a lot though.

  5. Lori Green on June 20, 2021 at 1:32 am

    With the drought going on is it smart to be watering so much for a few tomatoes that you can purchase? I was thinking of tomatoes but thanks for reminding me of the reality of living in Vegas.

    Good video. Searching through the transcript helps soooo much! well done.

    Have you had any luck with any berries in the Vegas desert?

    Interesting metallic mulch. 😉

    Here in Albuquerque we are in zone 7a (altitude 5280 ft). Taos is zone 6. Our summer temps are high and we freeze around the end of October. Please differentiate between high desert conditions (Albuquerque, Denver, Flagstaff) and low desert conditions. I can only dream of Meyer lemons in my garden.

    The only thing I could ever grow here in LV was cilantro. Our neighbor had fruit trees which brought in a terrible rat problem.

    Can you make update video on her house?

  13. Ed19601 on June 20, 2021 at 1:41 am

    nuts like almonds are fairly prone to Aspergillus infections that produces aflatoxin. hence i can understand the governments rules about pasteurizing or treating nuts, but yes, growing yr own is always better

  14. agaveman on June 20, 2021 at 1:41 am

    Yes , being yourself is refreshing.
     Phony hair sprayed stiff asses <senator types>are killing the rest of us all.

    Thanks John.  "Holmes"

  23. Eloah DRmwvr on June 20, 2021 at 1:47 am

    Took me a few years to figure out what it was about you that got under my skin. I think i finally understand now …  You SHOUT instead of talk. Not sure why you feel the need to do that but for a sensitive individual it is really disturbing for those like myself.

  24. Gardening With Puppies on June 20, 2021 at 1:49 am

    Thanks for taking us back to the Tomato Lady’s Garden. It is amazing how well everything is growing in the desert.

  25. wilkus46 on June 20, 2021 at 1:51 am

    Haha. Is that an Eggplant in your pocket? Funny guy.

  26. Calzy on June 20, 2021 at 1:52 am

    Seen a few videos from this gentleman now, I must say I really appreciate his enthusiasm and messages. I hope that the production quality may improve in the near future because I think that would increase the channel’s reach and impact. Peace and keep up the amazing work. The passion is easily identified over here.

  27. the4thj juno on June 20, 2021 at 1:54 am

    It’s category is labeled "Education", why do you keep trying to selling me something?
    You’ve just said, "look at this!, she can sell you this".

  28. flashhassen on June 20, 2021 at 1:55 am

    Hey there,
    Need some advice please.
    I have some tomatoes growing for the past two months or so. and they are doing great generally. They have a lot of blossoms for a while now but only 2 fruit have set. I have been tapping them to aid in pollination and I have seen some bees around as well but the fruit isn’t setting. They have been watered pretty well, but not too much because my country is currently in a drought. The rains have been coming in a bit now so we haven’t been wetting them as much, but the soil isn’t bone dry or anything. The temperature here is around 29-33 deg C daily right now and the humidity is around 70%. Do you know why the fruits aren’t setting?
    ♡Thanks in advance!♡

    Is that ur dirty socks in my garden.

  35. 1charlastar on June 20, 2021 at 2:04 am

    I don’t know water prices in Las Vegas, but where I live in the desert of Southern California, if I watered that much, my water bill would be at least $500 a month. Maybe more.

  36. doyouremember22 on June 20, 2021 at 2:04 am

    The entire almond "fruit" is edible and eaten in many cultures, it’s not just the nut inside! The trick it to pick it earlier on when the hard nut coating is still soft and the nut inside has a "jelly" texture. The whole thing taste sour and delicious and can be purchased in Armenian/ Arabic produce stores when it’s in season.

  37. Anthony Sinclair on June 20, 2021 at 2:05 am

    John did you ever contemplate becoming an auctioneer? ; )

  38. Samuel Galdieri on June 20, 2021 at 2:06 am

    I want to have a garden like that some day, having chickens would be nice too for fresh eggs, right now I have a 12×14 raised bed so I’ll be able to pull plenty out of that for now but what a killer garden

  39. SuperKenneth187 on June 20, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Damn you go a little too far you’re like "I refuse to wipe my ass unless it is organic toilet paper".

  40. Nayr Tnartsipac on June 20, 2021 at 2:07 am

    Gotta love John. Total nerd. but this dude is dedicated. He goes everywhere on the west coast and beyond. I would love to see him go to vietnam, morocco, or israel and do videos on the food forest and innovative farming being done there

  41. Robb Cobb on June 20, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Love leslie’s big bush and big n sweet melons!!

  42. Wild Horse's On The Move on June 20, 2021 at 2:11 am

    Where is the best place to go for organic foods that is grown here?

  43. TheGamer on June 20, 2021 at 2:12 am

    How many ton of tomato can yield per acre and how long?

  44. Jeez S. Christ on June 20, 2021 at 2:13 am

    Just planted my "home depot" garden. Built a box, filled with Miracle Gro and local soil. I am sure I will regret having used the MG stuff but I am just a beginner with a red thumb of death. Hoping to get some tomatoes and carrots, low expectations. 
    Loving these vids, they help so much.

  45. Susie on June 20, 2021 at 2:13 am

    With that many tomato plants, I don’t suppose she goes around and pulls off suckers and lower leaves. Since these are primary tips most gardeners tell you is a must, how does hers do so well? What’s the difference? Sun, soil and moisture is a constant with every gardener.

  46. St.Fiacre on June 20, 2021 at 2:13 am

    9:15 –the reason the malabar spinach is growing in Vegas,is because its growing in dappled light under some shade trees–don’t assume you could plant that in full sun,and have it thrive like that.

  47. christian66ca on June 20, 2021 at 2:15 am

    if you are hung like an eggplant as u say you are perhaps you should do a nekkid gardening video with the tomato lady
