Backyard Garden Tour | 5 Raised Beds!

Backyard Garden Tour | 5 Raised Beds!

Today I’m taking you on a tour of our backyard garden! Everything has been in the ground for a month or so now and lots of the plants are thriving. We used our old untreated deck wood to make THREE new raised beds this year! Kudos to Dylan for doing all of the hard work 😉

    My partner and I were watching this video and he noticed what he thinks is probably a cabbage moth (cabbage white). He said to check the underside of the leaves to see if there are any worms or eggs. Apparently they can easily eat an entire plant, and they feed on all brassicas… That garden bed is a BUFFET for those little guys! Just a heads up (is that a cabbage pun?)
    Anyway. You can always cover them with some chicken wire to keep them from landing on your plants.
    Good luck with your lovely little garden!

    Ps: My partner and I are both vegan and love your videos ❣️

    I really like the idea of the reflector on the shaded side of the house! I tried something similar but it was a

    Hello Caitlin, I have been a fan of yours since I am vegan too. I am interested in gardening but I fear mice and rats. I know this is unpleasant but has this been an issue for you or others who would like to comment. I do not want to kill so therefore, I am concerned this may be an issue.

  4. Annie Siegel on June 28, 2021 at 2:02 am

    Garden goals 🔥

  5. Jenna Ballinger on June 28, 2021 at 2:04 am

    I love garden tours. It’s so much bigger than last year and you’ve learned so much. It looks great!

  6. Amy L on June 28, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Is there a reason for not mulching the veggie beds? Just wondering if it’s a geographic thing as where I live it would be too hot to grow anything without mulching the beds plus I think it helps soil microbes or something like that.

  7. Francesca Bosco on June 28, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Smart thinking on the plum tree.

  8. Kiana LaShae on June 28, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Do you have any vegan-friendly advice to protect the plants from disease & pests?

  9. chiaraaa on June 28, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Nothing garden related (i love your yard!!!) but what about Mayas DNA analysis? Still very interested what mix of breeds she is😁

  10. Jennifer O on June 28, 2021 at 2:07 am

    Do you use specific soil?

  11. Isabella Rose on June 28, 2021 at 2:10 am

    Have you ever thought of trying home brew kombucha? That would be fun to see

  12. ana love on June 28, 2021 at 2:11 am

    What soil do you use?

  13. Jordan on June 28, 2021 at 2:11 am

    Careful growing spicy peppers near each other. They cross pollinate very easily and often transfer flavors & spice easily.

  15. Léa Montégut on June 28, 2021 at 2:14 am

    The garden looks wonderful ! It’s a great idea to get two of the same fruit tree to pollination. For the tomatoes you can prune the suckers and the bottom leaves to have healthier plants and so that their fruit get sweeter. For the cauliflower leaves they make great greens powder 🙂

  16. Sidra Isenberg on June 28, 2021 at 2:18 am

    So great you are doing this!

  17. johna govender on June 28, 2021 at 2:18 am

    Well done. ❤️

  18. Jazmin Bennett on June 28, 2021 at 2:20 am

    Lots of winter plants in the beds for the summer😬

  19. Love always Jasmine on June 28, 2021 at 2:20 am

    How’s your garden growing?

  20. Happy Planteria PH on June 28, 2021 at 2:22 am

    Your backyard garden is so pretty 😍😍😍

  21. Janet Beall on June 28, 2021 at 2:24 am

    Looks beautiful!! So important to know where your food comes from

  22. Yogaville, Durbanville - Yoga Studio on June 28, 2021 at 2:26 am

    I only grow my basil indoors. Try putting it on a windowsill in the kitchen.

  23. thuy nguyen on June 28, 2021 at 2:28 am

    Those are called oak leaf lettuce

  24. Annie Siegel on June 28, 2021 at 2:28 am

    Please give us a garden update!

  25. Mary Ann Mendoza on June 28, 2021 at 2:29 am

    I’ve practiced companion planting to reduce pest and to help my veggies, herbs, fruit trees grow well. Tomatoes and basil grow well together like a good married couple. Chives or green onions with any citrus trees. I use Sluggo. It’s better for the ground and turns into dirt eventually. It’s safe for pets. My problem is always slugs and snails. Don’t like. I don’t use harsh chemicals in and around my home. Better for the environment. Thank you for sharing your backyard. I always like seeing other peoples home garden as well as their kitchen. The heart of any home, IMO.

  26. Jennifer Moy on June 28, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Yes to a garden update!

  27. Phyllis Cable on June 28, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Good idea about putting cages around the pepper plants.

  28. Geraldine Buenafe on June 28, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Kudos Caitlin & Dylan!!!! I’m so inspired to start my own garden. 💕

  29. Katelyn Lauren on June 28, 2021 at 2:31 am

    Looks amazing!

  30. MagixVFX on June 28, 2021 at 2:33 am

    4:34 in my area they dalled them saw edge cilantro because it has cilantro flavour

  31. Marthe Cecilie Olsen on June 28, 2021 at 2:34 am

    No strawberry?

  32. stephanie michalski on June 28, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Pull all the blueberries off the little bush in the middle…when you have a little bush that seems to be taking longer than normal it’s trying to product fruit before it grows…so pick off all the blueberries (literally all the berries)…and it will toss it back into the "growing" stage and it will start to get bushier…Sometimes bushes try and skip the growth stage and go right to harvest when in fact it needs to grow first.

  33. lisamichalsky on June 28, 2021 at 2:36 am

    Love your garden! I only have a small balcony, but I still grow some herbs and veggies on there 😊

  34. Hakunnah Mu-tAH-TAH on June 28, 2021 at 2:37 am

    I just grew some beets, cucumber and bok choy..they are growing but not actual vegetables yet..the leaves are sprouting so that was exciting to see..i have then in a small cardboard box so I think when it gets bigger I’ll get a bigger pot

  35. Saaniyah Sajed on June 28, 2021 at 2:39 am

    How do you keep bugs away?

  36. Cathy Lynn Pietranton on June 28, 2021 at 2:40 am

    Hi Caitlyn looks like you got a nice garden going on in your backyard. Thanks for sharing.❤

  37. Judy Jetson on June 28, 2021 at 2:40 am

    Lol a garden is easy to maintain once you have set it up. You really only have to worry about watering it.

    I wish it was that easy. I have to feed my plants. Check for insect damage. Find & Pick off the bad bugs because I grow organically. Weeding takes time.

  38. mango on June 28, 2021 at 2:41 am

    the little gnomes doing yoga are adorable 🍄🤩 everything looks delicious and fresh 🥬🍅🌱

  39. Sike Edelic on June 28, 2021 at 2:42 am

    Caitlin, I love your content! What do you think of the censorship going on at YouTube lately? Will you continue using the platform or move to something like Bitchute?

  40. Jim C on June 28, 2021 at 2:42 am

    Looks like you are doing a great job already but I learned a lot from Luke at MIgardner might want to check him out, his entire channel is about teaching people to grow stuff.

  41. Alyssa Dixon on June 28, 2021 at 2:43 am

    Yes we would love more videos like this

  42. erykasrpeach on June 28, 2021 at 2:43 am

    I like to keep growing what does best and try new things where I maybe failed prior years. I’m in northern central ca so it get hot! And some things love it.. some things not so much

  43. Charlene Straw on June 28, 2021 at 2:44 am

    Charles Dowding is an amazing youtuber to look up if you want to learn a lot about home gardens. Yours looks amazing btw!

  44. Erin Reed on June 28, 2021 at 2:44 am

    Hey there,dill is an annual so only lasts 1 season as well as basil. Basil does not enjoy super hot direct sun. It can get tuff
