    Hey Kevin! Where do you source your seeds? #newbie

  2. sakura mochi on June 28, 2020 at 7:26 pm

    Omg I had no idea you wrote that book, just recently started reading it! Thanks 💜

    3:54 “Really nice, really fresh pee flavor” 😨🤢

    What a coincidence, I bought sunflower seeds (for minigreens), mini pak choi seeds and kale (Brazilian kale is very different) seeds for my first attempt at gardening because I never saw them at the grocery store and never tasted them. Your video was very reassuring of the choice I made out of curiosity. I also bought nira (garlic flower) and cambuci pepper, hope they’ll grow nicely because boy these are expensive at the grocery store.

  5. Jeff Linke on June 28, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    Another great video, Epic Gardener is one of the best – in my top 5 for sure in his field. Microgreens contain elevated biotics according to Anthony William -aka The Medical Medium who is the only person on the planet that Spirit actually talks to in a real voice and has since the age of 4. See what Spirit says about Microgreens https://healing-health-notes.blogspot.com/2020/06/microgreens-and-sprouts.html

    I just wanna to know if you want to make some video about "Salad Green". U know, what kinda leafy greens you need to grow for your salad and what it’s taste like.
    Cause i never eat salad in my whole life and im kinda interesting about that.
    *Note : i’m sorry if my english is bad. Thanks

  7. Annie Ashley on June 28, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    You speak just like the 2 brothers on the HGTV network that restore homes 🤣🤣

  8. Abhishek Jain on June 28, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    are baby lettuce more nutritious than fully matured lettuce, what is an ideal time to harvest in case we want more nutritious food ?

  9. Ray Wolf on June 28, 2020 at 7:38 pm

    Can you tell me where you purchased your seeds?

  10. soonerbug1 on June 28, 2020 at 7:39 pm

    I would like to see a video of complementary planting. Like which plants like to be planted by each other etc. Please and thanks from zone 7!

  11. John Mark on June 28, 2020 at 7:39 pm

    Hahaha fresh pee flavor JK haha

  12. Paula on June 28, 2020 at 7:42 pm

    20 years of good harvests. S#$t no! I’m not going to live to 93 🤣🤣🤣
    But I love your video and would like to crop something for fun but I usually kill everything.

  13. Mr K on June 28, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    Sir? These videos are great. Congrats on your success and thank you for sharing the knowledge!

    Edit: Also just ordered a signed copy of your book as a show of support and appreciation. Cheers from Colorado

  14. Linda Vilma Ole on June 28, 2020 at 7:49 pm

    Good ideas. Thank you!

  15. Mrs Hickman-Bennett on June 28, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    I believe its good because of the way you took your hat off!!!!! lol love it

  16. Pooh!! on June 28, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    I knew it must be good when he had to take off his hat….👍

  17. Cristy Garcia on June 28, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Once you harvest do you continue as usual with watering and it’ll grow back or do you have to do something else?

  18. Tara Baldwin on June 28, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    i would eat the salad if it had no sardines

  19. Reverend Christine on June 28, 2020 at 7:56 pm

    Great video.

  20. Food Forest SG on June 28, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    I’m looking forward to my wins! In this case, Kale, which is in its very youthful stage.

  21. Exceptional Talents PC on June 28, 2020 at 8:00 pm

    Sardines on a salad…???!!! GREAT video…!!! Your garden looks so amazingly healthy…!!!

  22. teklife on June 28, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    Did you put uncooked beets in your salad?

  23. monica mago on June 28, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    I have learned so much by watching your channels. Thanks so much.

  24. monica mago on June 28, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    You are really great but question is which mulch is good to keep soil moist. How to get nice fruits from any tree some peaches and nectars and apples are ruined by insects. Thanks

  25. Laughinggray on June 28, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    Purslane also grows really quickly, has a nice texture, tastes great, can be used raw and cooked, and is extremely nutritious.

  26. Teraformm on June 28, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    So I am still very new to gardening. My question is, can you harvest the lettuce and micro greens multiple times in a season? Will they regrow after cutting them?

  27. Abhishek Jain on June 28, 2020 at 8:07 pm

    does lettuce harvested at around 30 day mark have same nutrition as a fully grown lettuce ?

  28. New Naturel on June 28, 2020 at 8:08 pm

    I’m growing beets for the first time. How do I know if it’s ready to eat? I’m talking about the actual beet, not the beet greens

  29. Jk Schulte on June 28, 2020 at 8:08 pm

    I grew up in the inland valley and had big ungrounds gardens as a kid, but now I have a small area to grow. I started with a few pots and started growing herbs for the first time. Then your video on basil pruning popped up. Now I’m up to 10 plants and I’m propagating my own thanks to you. I love this channel. Keep it up.

  30. Erik Rose Johnsen on June 28, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Thank you for this! I have just turned part of my lawn into growing beds and this helped me decide what to grow first.

  31. Elisa Zulueta on June 28, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Thanks , I enjoyed your video, great tips for urban gardening

  32. lottalettuce on June 28, 2020 at 8:10 pm

    I was with you until the sardines. Great video though. Enjoyed it.

  33. Moon Goddess of the Sun on June 28, 2020 at 8:10 pm

    Kevin I am super impressed that you are so young and have come so far in such a little time. I’ve been binge watching your videos and have learned so much! Maybe you’ll take us into your kitchen and make some videos showing what you do with your harvests (hint hint (lol!)) I have no idea if you’ll ever see this comment, but I planted some lettuce seeds on Mother’s day 2020. They sprouted their seed leaves and have not grown any more leaves in over 6 weeks! They’re still seedlings. Your microgreens are larger than my lettuce seedlings, and yours grew in less time. What am I doing wrong? Anyhoo, please keep making your gardening videos. You are very much appreciated.

  34. Sythgara on June 28, 2020 at 8:11 pm

    I’ve been trying to grow radishes since we had great weather but I think my first couple are just not growing anymore. They’re pretty small for a raddish. NEw ones are growing but would anyone have any tips? I try to not give them too much sun and heat as I’ve read it can make them go bitter. TBH I never liked radishes since they were always bitter and ‘hot’ to me but I wanted to give home grown ones a chance, so any tips would be awesome.

  35. Gordana Stefanovic on June 28, 2020 at 8:11 pm

    3:48 how people imagine us vegans 😂😂

  36. Whytedavy Construction & farm on June 28, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    I’ve never grown microgreens but now I want to try it. Thanks

  37. Melissa Sullivan on June 28, 2020 at 8:15 pm

    You had me until sardines. 🤢

  38. Jaden Neko on June 28, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    Am fangirling so hard right now. Few months ago i I chucked a few patatoes on the ground and am about to pull them out. Wish I found your channel earlier, but you have a new fan now!

  39. xoxliltina12xox on June 28, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    This is amazing! I am a new gardener who just bought a farm in Panama. Your videos are absolutely incredible and make me feel more confident with getting started! thank you for so much detail and sharing all of this knowledge!

  40. Nick Gray on June 28, 2020 at 8:18 pm

    Sunflowers sound good, but I don’t see many on sale in the UK for ‘eating’, and wonder if the coatings/treatment on flower seeds are harmfull for eating very young plants. Does anybody know/have experience of buying them for eating like this in the UK ?

  41. sophi aurora on June 28, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    you are helping me so much i am just a beginner gardener and i have herbs, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, pumpkins and they work out beautifully. I’m thinking about getting a summer squash/zucchini squash next.

  42. Anna Wacaser on June 28, 2020 at 8:20 pm

    Please make a video about chia! Mine are almost three inches tall and I’m thinking of getting a garden bed to put them in!

  43. Ms Marje on June 28, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    This is helpful, thanks 😊

  44. trinimuslimhaj on June 28, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    Any peas/legume?

  45. Ruth Baker on June 28, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    Thank you

  46. A Mind With Heart on June 28, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    If this was taught in all public schools there would be no reason for anyone to go hungry (add a few chickens for eggs of course 🙂 )

  47. Msgizzarable on June 28, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    If you cut the leafs and leave the rest in the soil does it just regrow

  48. birdsong8fly on June 28, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    What is that nice big bathtub like bed you are planting in?
