    If u used plastic container, i suggest to burn your nail on candle/stove then pierce it on your container and u will get nice hole without cracking your plastic container

  2. G. Mendoza on June 22, 2022 at 10:14 pm

  5. Hayley Simpson on June 22, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    It’s too hot where I live to grow lettuce or any greens outdoors unless its Oct-Feb. I want to try this!

  6. Syed Abad on June 22, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Hello CaliKim
    This is Raza from India.I used to get inspiration from your videos.
    Great you are!

  7. Brandie on June 22, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    How much if each packet did you use for that one container? I ask because I have five kids and would need to do multiple containers and don’t know how many packets I would need. Thanks!

  8. Don Gillam on June 22, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Love your dog….

  9. Debie Gordon on June 22, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Love all those cute CONTAINERS 👍👍👍. Thrift shops for coffee cups💚💚💚 I always load up on those FLOWER TIN containers from dollar tree👍👍👍 Can’t wait to grow lettuce indoors💚💚💚ThanQ 🌱🌱🌱🎃🎃🎃

  10. Kęstutis Šliauderis on June 22, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    For plastic containers use screws instead of nails 😉

  11. Ruvio Steady wit it on June 22, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    This video is amazing, thank you 🙂

  12. Bruce Stevens on June 22, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    What wattage would you need in the grow light? Great videos. Thanks

  13. Janette Lavender on June 22, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Aldi sells THE BEST thick study chicken clear plastic meat trays. I use them for water trays on so many plants. They hold up very well. Family packs are the best.

  14. Bluebeard2011 on June 22, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    if you used a drll for holes the dont crack

  15. Natalie Ch on June 22, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    what do you put as a water tray under the beautiful tin ones_

    What are you growing indoors? Thanks for watching!

  17. Janette Lavender on June 22, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Just drill the bottom plastic, use a crafting solder iron or heat a nail to poke holes. OR Hammer the inside box on a board IF YOU MUST. Home made 2:1 Peat moss/ perlite mix is sooooooo much cheaper. Just wet peat moss so it become absorbent then add the perlite. I add a little bit of Dr Earth dry organic fertilizer. You only need a tablespoon or so in a box this size. My preferred way is to use a 20-20-20 1/2 strength liquid fertilizer to water and WATCH IT GROW. 😉

  18. The Otherme on June 22, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    does lettuce reseed itself? or do you have to keep buyng new seeds?

  19. The Ayvionna and A’harmony show on June 22, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    How often do you water lettuce?

  20. Anita Mah on June 22, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    The light on 12 hours a day. Would the power bill too expensive?

  21. Douglas Perera on June 22, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    Thanks for your valuable instructions .

  22. D Y on June 22, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Do you need a bottom tray for the container, because of the holes? Otherwise the soil will leak and make a mess.

  23. Debbie Blankenship on June 22, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    I am totally new to planting Lettuce and actually new to planting anything. I want to start planting Lettuce indoors but I have a question. Do you have bugs or any type of insects that get Into your Lettuce inside the house?

  24. John G on June 22, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Suggestion for plastic containers… Don’t turn upside down. If it is big enough like one on video hit nail when bottom is on a hard surface. Your odds of cracking much better. Or heat nail and melt through.

  25. B Nance on June 22, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    When growing indoors do you fertilize?

  26. LouLou on June 22, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    How do I "thin" out the seedlings later without killing them?

  27. allah son on June 22, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    You rthebestttt so easy 1 two three

  28. audie634 on June 22, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Hi Great video are you familiar with Minners lettuce? and if so, can you give some advise?

  29. laurelrunlaurelrun on June 22, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Use a drill!!

  30. Coffie on June 22, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    This is great for guinea pig owners 😀

  31. Hotrod Prepper on June 22, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Hi Kim, great video … how do I know when its time to harvest the lettuce? Do they need full sunlight?
    Thanks in advance.

  32. s andy on June 22, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    i use kitty litter jugs on deck for lettuces. soldering iron is good for making holes in containers. the one i have was in tool box for years, never used, but now it stays handy in my gardening gear. the big clear juice jugs are useful as well.

  33. Irish Up This Coffee on June 22, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    The tip of a hot glue gun works great for making holes in the bottom of plastic containers! Just don’t insert a glue stick, obviously haha.

  34. Teresa Bell on June 22, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Started growing my lettuces, spinach, kale, arugula and mustard greens in pots outdoors. I’ve had to cover them several times this fall. You all are out of Trifecta and worm castings so I ordered another brand from Amazon. Now looking to see where I can place them indoors to get enough sunlight. I will keep you posted. I’m in B’ham, AL. Thank you!

  35. Ezway Ocho on June 22, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Tip: you don’t even need the 🔨 I just light a 🕯️ and heat up the nail & just push it through the plastic. Also if you have an awl you can heat the tip of the awl the same way 🕯️

  36. DD O'Brien on June 22, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Where is "Sow Cow" located?

  37. Imi Translator on June 22, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    You are very generous to share your experiences regarding planting but mostly focus on gardening tools for selling that is inevitable, but I’d like to ask you please mention about important issues as well such the number of days for germination that you haven’t mention in this video and time of watering and so on. Thanks any way

  38. Neob on June 22, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you, you for this!

  39. momrow10 on June 22, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Use a wood burner to make holes on plastic! Works perfect

  40. Paj Tognetti on June 22, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Hi Kim! I’m a native Californian like you, but I live now in Italy (very challenging climate to grow in- especially while trying to learn!). I love so much your and Gary’s videos. I have learned so much and have been inspired by you to take on gardening, thank you!

    I have a question: I love, too, those beautiful metal containers, but don’t they get rusty when you have to water your seeds/ plants, also, with the humidity? Do you treat them with a sealer? I have thought of that, but didn’t want to add any chemicals to anything I would be growing to eat. Did you have any rust issues in using them? Thank you!

  41. kuurt on June 22, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    In some videos I watched they added fertilizer or other stuff to the soil, but you didn’t. Is a bag of potting mix all we need? How long can you use the soil in you pot before you have to replace it? Just replace it with new soil, or add nutrients every so often?

  42. Cd B on June 22, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Buy a soldering iron, about $5, at any hardware store or online to make holes big and small easily on plastic containers with high heat

  43. Blood Brothers on June 22, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Nice content video and your presentation is calm. I watched without even speeds up video. I made a DIY container bin which inside i fully paste it with aluminium foil, and my light i kind of set it on the bin lid so all the light will concentrate inside the bin with minimal light spreads out of the bin. I left some space on bin sides to allow ventilation.

  44. PAW on June 22, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Thank you. ps- beautiful dog:-)

  45. Debie Gordon on June 22, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    👉Along with that heated nail & aue…an EMPRY GLUE GUN tip works great too👍👍👍

  46. Cee Bee on June 22, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    I planted way too many seeds 4 weeks and. I’ve tried thinning them too, I think I need to start over.

  47. jtuno122 on June 22, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I’m like you, I like the lettuce with red on them.

  48. Jennie Lutz-Burns on June 22, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    your dog is adorable by the way

  49. Angela Darby on June 22, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    I just got a bunch of seeds and a fee grow bags for my potatoes and dwarf fruit trees. I’m growing everything inside. I will have the vine plants growing up and around a frame of one of those tent like stands that the wind had ripped up. the frame is good and sturdy. On the top of it I can picture my grapes growing up there. Havent figured out how. Thanks for the shoebox idea. I bought 32 of them last year and only used five from the box. I’m so excited! its 9:32 pm and I’m going to pull them out and get to hammering and planting! Lol! You are an AWESOME lady!!!

  50. d18zephyr on June 22, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Do you use a tray to catch the run off water?
