    Neem oil and soap worked great for us to keep most bugs away, but we got absolutely destroyed by grubs which weren’t affected by it.

    Your her man shepherd looks EXACTLY like my German shepherd named Syda, that passed away a few years back. Normally when I see other German shepherds they never look like Syda, because they all have their own unique appeaeance, at least IMO, but I can’t tell yours apart from my old dog. Really cazy. Defiantly my favorite breed.

    That’s such a cool story about your other dog hank. I’m glad he found the right people to take him in. something tells me an angel was involved.

    Thanks for the video’s. I live in Dallas and was wondering where you’re located?

    So my take away is-plant carrot seeds shallow and they like full sun. Got it. Thank you, You mentioned your green beans. Have you tried to dehydrate them for later use? My Grandmother used to snap the ends off, pull the "strings" and sew them together in long strings with a heavy thread. She’s lay them in the sun and when they were dehydrated, hang the strings in her pantry. When she wanted a mess of beans, she’d cut the string, take what she wanted, and tie another knot so the rest of the string stayed in place. If I recall correctly, she’d cook them in a saucepan with water and bacon grease, or it may have been fatback, not sure. That was a very long time ago. She called them "leather britches". Thanks again and take care.

    It works really well to put boards on top of your carrots until they sprout, especially here in North TX!

    Where did you get your mushroom compost? I live south of you.

    What type of heat coil would you use for your raised bed? I put in 2 new raised beds this year and have already ordered greenhouse plastic to create diy low tunnels. I’ve been trying to figure out how to heat it so we can grow warmer weather crops as long as possible. Who knows what will happen this fall /winter!

    Can u put link to video to the tubs with carrots

    Hi. I have had good success with mulching carrot seed with a very thin covering of grass clippings, no more than 1/4 inch. Helps to conserve moisture and creates a zone of high humidity near the seed as the grass gives up it`s moisture .

    Our garden was destroyed by grasshoppers this year. I was so surprised. A lot of our plants recovered from it but it was terrible. I am really contemplating on having a high tunnel. We are in Decatur

    Hi Jill, I love your videos, I am hopeful that I can have some harvest for winter. I need to get my soil softer, it has too much clay and becomes like cement real quick. My green beans and okra didn’t mind it too much but I really got to add soil or a filler, money is bit limited but any ideas I would appreciate. Lastly, the squirrels and mostly the rabbits got to some of the things that were planted, so I bought some netting for my winter crop to see if that would help deter them. Anyhu, take care, looking forward and praying your garden does great!!🤗🌈🌷👩‍🌾
