    Wonderful!

    This year I planted chinese cabbage and it just went straight into flowering/seeds. are there things I might have done wrong? did I plant it too soon or too late? could there be something wrong with the soil I put them in? They grew really fast and good at first but then they just didn’t turn into cabbages but got long stalks with flowers. It did work out for my caterpillar problem because I could not use the cabbage anymore I just picked up all caterpillars from my other plants and put them on there to eat and grow while leaving the rest of my veggies alone.

    Pleased to see that I eat most of these each week, and glad to have a few of them growing in my garden at the moment too.

    Summer squash is impossible to grow when you have the vine borer like we do in SW Florida.
    Oh, and for you folks lucky enough to live in milder climates like I do, moringa blows every conventional vegetable away for vitamin and mineral content. I eat the stuff daily. It grows like it’s from a tree. Oh wait, it is a tree. lol

    Good list. Imo tho, zucchini is pretty tasteless and, my guess is, prob worse in nutrient lvl then squash.

    як по латинські буде Kale-я ще ніколи таке не бачив?
    хочу спробувати в Україні таке вирастити.

  10. Bob Lai on October 12, 2021 at 9:10 am

    I would add beets to the list as well as leek and sun chokes. Cucumbers are also a great and we have them in our green house this year.

  11. Andrew Lockwood on October 12, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Lots of options.

  12. Liliana West on October 12, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Wonderful and inspiring! I personally love okra and my six plants in my tiny square foot garden this year provided me with a constant supply throughout the growing season, which was heavenly.

  13. Nadia on October 12, 2021 at 9:13 am

    And pumpkin, sweet potato, squash, grapes and blackberries 🙂

    Cholesterol is good . Sugar is bad. Over 65 year olds with high cholesterol live longer and in better health.

  15. Nancy Wells on October 12, 2021 at 9:17 am

    I love these planting videos. I’ve enjoyed yellow squash this year.

  16. Graham R Dyer on October 12, 2021 at 9:19 am

    I grow all the Kale’s but my favorite one is Red Russian I think it even beat’s Curly.

  17. Lesley Slack on October 12, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Any tips for plant food

  18. Noor Jehan Jamkhanghar on October 12, 2021 at 9:23 am

    but it is very difficult because of pets

  19. Forward Air Controllers Association on October 12, 2021 at 9:23 am

    Read Dr Gundry’s two books – "Diet Evolution" and "Plant Paradox" and see if your suggestions still hold up.

  20. Nadia on October 12, 2021 at 9:27 am

    Great video thank you! Carrots, brussel sprouts, rucola and onions?

  21. Diana Kenney on October 12, 2021 at 9:27 am

    I would add blackcurrants to the list. as it is rich in vitamin c and not easy to buy fresh n the shops. Two or three bushes will provide enough fruit to eat at once and freeze the remainder for use in the winter.

  22. Ce K on October 12, 2021 at 9:27 am

    I noticed spinach is a different vegetable when grown in your own garden, it is so good!

  23. Moi Tan on October 12, 2021 at 9:28 am

    I will try to plan this years let see it work or not too hot or too cold here …! Need green house I guess…!

  24. patrick collicott on October 12, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Grow Goji berries! Delicious fresh. You will get a huge crop after a few years.

  25. VivianfFurlow on October 12, 2021 at 9:33 am

    beets!

  26. Ryan Rail on October 12, 2021 at 9:35 am

    next video can you talk about gardening in pots, and what are good plant choices to grow in them thank you

  27. Lesley Slack on October 12, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Could you send information please slack.lesley@hotmail.co.uk

  28. Steve Borsher on October 12, 2021 at 9:38 am

    Butternut squash can be stored and eaten all winter. Cukes can be eaten fresh or pickled. Both are easy to grow, but must be trellised.

  29. Annie Gaddis on October 12, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Was so glad to hear Garlic had Manganese in it. I have a memory problem because was born with Aspergers Syndrome. Please make a video with LOTS of gardening info for those of us with all different forms of Autism. Thank you so much.

  30. Unicorn Queen on October 12, 2021 at 9:40 am

    great video

  31. Andrea Vincent on October 12, 2021 at 9:40 am

    I love your videos!

  32. Precious Metal Head on October 12, 2021 at 9:40 am

    When he said beans, beans they’re good for your heart I wasn’t sure where that little rhyme was headed. 💨

  33. Jenny on October 12, 2021 at 9:42 am

    I didn’t see you have any protections from Kale. How did they not get eaten by slugs and caterpillars?

  34. JesusReallyDoesLoveYou dot com on October 12, 2021 at 9:46 am

    This is one of the very best videos I’ve seen on this topic. Well Done!!! Thank you so much! http://www.JesusReallyDoesLoveYou.com

  35. David Little on October 12, 2021 at 9:46 am

    How about Asparagus? Easy to grow and returns every year…

  36. Elba Dilán on October 12, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Bananas!

  37. Beauty for Ashes on October 12, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Most of these grow in my garden. I’d also recommend herbs, romaine lettuce and chard, which are also very nutrient-dense.

  38. Gabriel Engle on October 12, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Is there a book I can get that tells information about a vast variety of crops to grow and when and how to grow them?

  39. OpenyoureyesDX on October 12, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Malabar spinach!
