    John, I’m 1 week in on my new garden 15’x15′ area. I’m new at it, but absolutely obsessed over my new garden! I hope I get lots of healthy vegetables outta this…I spend about 3-6 hours per day in the garden since I dug the ground up, laid soil, nutrients, planted the seedlings….now I have a mole that is determined to return after I’ve hand caught him, he popped up outta the dirt while I was watering, imagine my surprise, lol….so I simply grabbed him & relocated him about an acre or two away…obviously not far enough cause the next morning I see his trail again. He hasn’t caused much harm, except for popping a few of my plants up along his trail, which I very easily pushed back down & watered. Besides him, I’m really enjoying my garden, but…I have planted "Cucumber Pickles" the smaller half sized cucumbers that grow on a vine, I’d like to know ur opinion on the cheapest & most efficient way to either buy or build my own trof I think it’s called, someting my viney vines can grow upwards onto?
    Thank you for the videos, I really enjoy watching u alot!

    Some cheap tips. pickup earthworms from sidewalk after rain and release in your garden. instead of costly fish fertilizer, buy cheap fish & banana grind with yeast and put in garden while watering.

    Is it true that milorganite is made from human feces? can you comment on the use of this

    Thanks for all your wisdom John!  Hope I can find most of this stuff near me in So. Cal.   Oh, and FYI.. It’s called "screeding"  – screeching is a really loud noise  🙂

    I once grew swiss chard in like 40% worm gold+,10% compost, and 50% azomite; and the plants grew so strong even when I forgot about them. They had massive stems and leaves like fans.

    I somewhat agree with yes350yes. However, John I appreciate the info you supply for free. You have helped me with a lot of information on gardening. I have been gardening since I was 14 years old, ( I am 60 today). My husband and I are filling 25-30 Sq yards of planter spaces right now in our front yard, and it is very costly just for a 50/50 mix; but we will complete the top 8 inches with some of the ideas I have learned from you. The rock dust is the hardest to find. Is there another brand besides Azomite?

    would this soil mix be appropriate for Japanese maples?

    Wow!!! that is some next level compost… respect for sharing your knowledge with us John.

    Thats fine but the average person cant afford or wont afford to add all those ingrediants. My thoughts are all those ingrediants are not needed anyway, but for those who have extra money to blow , knock yourself out.

    It’s called screed…screeding… not screetch.  Screeding comes from the cement trade and it’s where you do exactly what you did with the dirt only with the concrete…you screed it off to make it even and level.  SCREED!  🙂

    Why not just use wood chips as a top layer for water retention? wouldn’t it do just as good of a job as coconut coir and perilite?

    if that is at your front sidewalk the crap behind the lattice is an eye soar so why worry about how smooth the soil is?

    John I’m surprised you don’t make your own compost – you have an abundance of plant material and vegetable scraps to use?

    I understand why you want excellent curbside appeal.. I live among a bunch of Low Rents who don’t take care of the property. People look at me funny when spraying the weeds in the grass, fertilizing or putting down mulch.

    I just put in some vegetables and dumped in some leftover potting mix and a large amount of worm castings. Its looking good with a weekly regimen of worm tea and fish fertilizer to build the soil. Also threw in some Fish Bonemeal to help build the calcium level.

    Hi John..Would this be able to sustain the plants throughout the growing period or additional nutrients would be applied before harvesting
