    You need to reach out to me. It’s possible we could hook you up with some of the best LEDs in the industry

  2. Mary Kilgore on November 1, 2021 at 10:26 am

    How do you pollinate the tomatoes?? I am thinking with a thin paintbrush?? Thanks. I really enjoy your videos..

  3. Tim Wilson on November 1, 2021 at 10:26 am

    So In the future we must burn fossil fuels to grow food for the masses? How is any of this sustainable ? What happens when rolling blackouts become the norm?

  4. Christie Betts on November 1, 2021 at 10:26 am

    Good morning! Tomatoes in January, loving it

  5. Will Dwyer on November 1, 2021 at 10:27 am

    This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Chemtrails are a conspiracy theory and plants don’t use ultraviolet light for photosynthesis.

  6. Shen Tree on November 1, 2021 at 10:27 am

    What you are doing is the only true "organic" now. I commend your efforts. It has to be done in a glass or rigid plastic greenhouse, not soft plastic. All these nano particles being sprayed in our atmosphere can penetrate soft plastic. Diabolical beyond words.

  7. North Georgia Sanctuary on November 1, 2021 at 10:28 am

    When are you starting the new greenhouse? I want to build one too. I am growing in the basement with T5 grow lights. Cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, turnips, peas, beans, all herbs. Doing great so far. But I would prefer a greenhouse.

  8. Overlook Valley Homestead on November 1, 2021 at 10:28 am

    Awesome! I’m still trying to avoid the grow lights. We have this huge greenhouse that stays pretty warm and gets total natural light. But I’m not wanting to grow tomatoes or summer crops in the winter. Those look neat.

  9. deborah wagner on November 1, 2021 at 10:28 am

    good morning

    Love your channel.. Can you give – Homesteading the Hard Way – A shout out ? It is a channel that is very earthy and fun..please give it a shout and a look 🙂

  12. Makk is Looking on November 1, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Neato! I had not thought of using grow lights in a greenhouse / outside setting. Your tomato’s look delish! Very good looking aloe also.

    This is my first year to use grow lights. I over wintered some plants including propagating alot of spinach. New starts are purple sweet potatos from last year. The new stems that these plants are putting out are quite strong. I am amazed. Using LED lights.

  13. blinkofaneye on November 1, 2021 at 10:38 am

    wonderful, in bc,the best i grew was green beans n corn,lol

  14. Chip Geil on November 1, 2021 at 10:43 am

    Danny how long do ya’ll run your grow lights in a 24 hrs period?

  15. Sue Warman on November 1, 2021 at 10:45 am

    I’ve been hearing that LED lights are *very* bad for your health – anyone else heard this?

  16. a plan in mind on November 1, 2021 at 10:47 am

    I use grow lights in my greenhouse. We get very little sun in these months. However with the lights, I have lettuce, radishes, and kale thriving.

  17. s fetterly on November 1, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Thanks Danny!!! I’m leaving the hospital today, but I’ve gotten reports as to the basement gardens here in Rochester NY. all week. LED growlights have come so far since I first used them … keep spreading the message. I pray for your success

  18. Jemmie Stone on November 1, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Danny, I am so amazed at how your plants in the Greenhouse are producing. That is so exciting. Good review on the Grow Lights. I can’t wait until my Son and Daughter in law are able to get us a house, so that I can start teaching my two Grand Daughters how to grow our food. Thanks for sharing with us. God Bless You and Wanda.

  19. Reap What You Seaux on November 1, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Those aloe vera plants are beautiful!!!

  20. Homestead Hopeful Tara on November 1, 2021 at 10:50 am

    Your greenhouse is a dream come true! I can’t wait until we buy a homestead in two years so we can use some of the tips you guys have provided. Your channel is such a blessing. Thank you!

  21. Brian Friedewald on November 1, 2021 at 10:50 am

    Chemtrails? No such thing they’re contrails been in aviation for years

  22. Sue D on November 1, 2021 at 10:51 am

    Thanks for sharing about these lights.

  23. Ernie Hatmaker on November 1, 2021 at 10:52 am

    Those look like they’re doing wonderful!

  24. Jennifer Lord on November 1, 2021 at 10:52 am

    Firstly, we’ve been with you and your wonderful wife for a year, never disappointed! Regretting the sale of our 8×6 greenhouse ($) we still start our seeds indoors, and pray for their health. We are not young, and have been blessed with the DNA of farmers/gardeners/survivors and never stop learning! We were looking for a new light application, so your video was quite timely! Thanks! Blessings from our Itty Bitty City Farm here in North Central TN.

  25. Rock Hill Farm on November 1, 2021 at 10:54 am

    You should get a portable "Chinese parking heater" for your greenhouse or outbuildings or emergency heating. They are cheap $155 and run on diesel fuel and only need a small lawnmower 12 volt battery to fire the glow plugs.

  26. no name on November 1, 2021 at 10:59 am


    Building Greenhouse.
    Will you please include the design process when Deep South builds the greenhouse.

    Just thinking…I know nothing.

    Sq ft per light.
    Light configuration.
    Shelving configuration to maximize production.
    Light timing for plant rest cycles.
    Can all plants be grown together,
    separate rooms better?
    Can production be predicted by sqft?
    Determining size of Greenhouse.
    Is bigger better?
    Seed to produce in one place?
    Incorporate vertical application.
    Do you need to have sun? Build barn.
    Should we consider a panel with air space voids to combat lower temperature, reduce secondary heating.
    Solar panel placement for light energy.

    Excited to "Know" what to do…
    Now figuring out How to do it!
    Thanks for leading the way!!!!!
    In so Many things.

    All the best.

  27. Song of the South on November 1, 2021 at 10:59 am

    Greetings : which direction is your green house face ,west , East,or south exposure ? 🌎🤔 ???

  28. Puerto Rican Prepper on November 1, 2021 at 10:59 am

    Green house plants are looking good.

  29. Elizabeth Blanch on November 1, 2021 at 11:00 am

    Your still having chem trails?? We have not had any in months it winter and we out side of Buffalo NY, living Right in farm country, but when It not snowing or Raining we are getting beautiful blue skies like we have not had in 50-60 years

  30. buzzkillean on November 1, 2021 at 11:00 am

    I’m really glad you covered this subject, old techniques mixed with technology are life savers when it comes to producing food. Ultra efficient LEDs with green houses can mean the difference between eating or starving if/when the sun’s output limits growing conditions.

  31. Michael C on November 1, 2021 at 11:00 am

    Danny, can you show how bright the new ones are in the dark, am very interested in your new setup! THANK YOU as always for sharing!

  32. Sour Wes on November 1, 2021 at 11:01 am

    The autocob from is a great single point light that works excellent in greenhouses, tents, and starter setups. They only use 65watts each and the ChipOnBoard technology is amazingly bright. They have a built in heat sink that needs no cooling fan and are maintenance free. They are a little more expensive initially, but I have trashed 3 Chinese made grow lights and these are still going strong; they will pay for themselves in the long run. We have 4 in our 10×20 seedling greenhouse which provides enough supplemental light and heat to give us 2 extra weeks at the beginning of the season and 2 at the end, with a total of only 260 watts used. We used these to replace a 1000watt HID lamp, saving us almost 75% in electricity cost in this 1 greenhouse alone. They are also made by a USA small business

  33. Martha Adams on November 1, 2021 at 11:02 am

    I have great grow lights, BUT, greens will go to seed if you do not turn it off and on at the time/day they need. Could put a timer on the plug in, but haven’t done that yet. Right now, I am moving my greens down to the dark end of the greenhouse and leave the summer plants under the light. It works, but have to watch my greens.

  34. G Rock on November 1, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Are you still using the same grow lights or have you updated them?

  35. Sherry Murphy-Kleine on November 1, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Thanks, Danny! This is awesome info!!

  36. Gerry Marmee on November 1, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Have you ever explained how a grow light is different from a light bulb? It’s pretty interesting and useful to know.

  37. Gerry Marmee on November 1, 2021 at 11:07 am

    I have a small grow light in the house. This looks pretty interesting.

  38. Dawn Morris on November 1, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Greenhouse plants are looking awesome…I will have one this year on side of my garden 💚🌱💚

  39. Pamsplace Backyard Homestead on November 1, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Love hearing the cows 😁
    Let’s me know that I’m not the only one with bellowing bovine 🐄😂

  40. ontimethatsme on November 1, 2021 at 11:10 am

    thanks Danny. have you had to deal with white flies? been a real pain for us. neem oil helps but not100%

  41. stephen schmitt on November 1, 2021 at 11:11 am

    You’re too skinny to have all that food, What are you doing with all that you don’t eat

  42. no name on November 1, 2021 at 11:11 am

    Hello and thanks.
    So new person.
    New property.
    Considering the changing circumstances,
    Should a contained green house take priority over regular garden beds?

    Would need to rethink layout, but now would be the time. Thinking future efficiency not capital costs.

  43. mike a on November 1, 2021 at 11:12 am

    What is the light bill like ?

  44. carol parrish on November 1, 2021 at 11:16 am

    My cherokee tan pumpkins didn’t do good. I wasn’t able to harvest any. Are you going to have any seeds for sale?

  45. no name on November 1, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Where do you get the large pots?

  46. Gerry Marmee on November 1, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Some ideas on how to hang them would be good. I’m a baby novice.

  47. Robin R. on November 1, 2021 at 11:18 am

    Good morning. Thank you for this. Many blessings.

    Nice 👍 light

  50. Gerry Marmee on November 1, 2021 at 11:22 am

    As you can tell, I really like these ideas. For those who have winter, they could have fresh greens all winter.
