    I am sorry for misunderstanding you. Are you involved in the Californian wine trade?

    Discussing the overview of home vegetable gardening are worth learning for. I strongly agree with the bottomline and main insights of this video. It is another great information to ponder!

    He also represents freeze dates as being things that change..HELL NO..as ANYONE who actually lives there OR looks at charts can tell you.

    it’s 42 minutes into it and he has YET to mention fertilizer. only once he has mentioned water and he said it varies.

    maybe label it for what it is, just some hobbiest rambling about various topics.

    Ah yes, the sweet fragrant aroma of pesticides in the morning as I walk through my garden. This presenter is a paid hack job. Enough with the BS. Anyone advocating the use of chemical pesticides in this era is 1) A complete moron. 2) a industry insider or associate.

    99 cent tomato seeds[25-30 seeds] & 85 cents S & H at eBay – rnew3340
    and many other dirt cheap flower & veggie seeds..buy your seeds now [while you still can] people are actually talking about selling soylent green in America in the near future & hearing the Chinese are already doing it! google it!
    certainly better than the 5 bucks for seeds & 5 bucks for S & H at burr pee & other big name seed sellers

    We’re in the process of making raised garden beds, my husband wants to lay over the top of the card board an organic garden fabric. I’m not sure that’s a good idea since it prevents grass and weeds, wouldn’t that also stop the roots of our vegetables from growing?

    Seed saving?

  11. Cakes Downey on November 2, 2021 at 10:45 am

    this lecture should be taken down or it’s title needs to be changed. It is represented as a comprehensive guide..but it is far from it. some of it is actually dangerously misleading, for instance the fact that he said it is okay to use one pesticide dispenser for all mixes.

    garden hoe is avaiable from draper tools

    Why do you cuss me?

  17. Cakes Downey on November 2, 2021 at 10:57 am

    Friend, do not take it personal. your knowledge is not you and I am only speaking against the facts the vid contains and against the title.

    this video carries the name of the most prestigious Ag University in California and it is Not okay that the pesticide info in it is inaccurate. Also, it is titled in a way that portrays it as comprehensive. it is not. I am an ag person in California and it offends me.

    but You do not offend me.

    I love it Robert, great work

  19. Cakes Downey on November 2, 2021 at 11:00 am

    no. i don’t enjoy wasting my time on inaccurate ramblings.

  20. Ray Unseitig on November 2, 2021 at 11:06 am

    I found it interesting. But then I’m not ‘serious’ about it. It is more about having fun and enjoying oneself and the show. I get my food at the store, and just browse the videos. You seem to be pissed off over a hobby.

  21. Pepper Joe's on November 2, 2021 at 11:07 am

    Great video. Check out my YouTube Gardening videos.

    It was written in many forms, for many shall harvest. Have you had a good new auld year’s eve?

    The hoe at 6.30 is the best tool ever.I used to manage 14 acres of garden and could keep it weed free very easily by using a push pull hoe. It was aluminium, lightweight and a pleasure to use.

    "just someone who has many years of gardening experience"

    Would you spray poison on your home garden?
