    Also have you grown any coconuts or is it to high up

    Do you have some Mindanao Gums on your property?

    Pakalolo grows great there, everyone should grow it

    Hey Bill, are Acai palms grown in Hawaii?

    The passion fruit looks divine! Boy, if I get my vines that thick I’m going to market.

    I will watch your video very shortly, but it seems some crazy is putting needles in small puniest of strawberries and the Queensland Government has launched police investigations to try and find the person or persons responsible. Apparently this has nearly caused the collapse of the Queensland strawberry industry. And I just saw and I haven’t read the latest news but a needle was found in a banana, I will see what the latest news on that is. Another sensible reason to grow your own food. I have never heard of this sort of terrorism, but someone must want to see the Qld strawberry industry suffer, maybe a disgruntled farm worker, who knows, but I don’t think anyone has been hurt yet, thankfully.Now I’ll watch your video, hope Hawaii doesn’t have these problems.

    Strawberries with rum, could be a good partnership! 🙂

    In Qld, Australia where there still is a sugar cane industry, they make a horrible dark rum, terrible stuff, Bundaberg rum. Mauritius make a quite decent cane spirit or rum, but I don’t drink alcohol too much now or even in the past. But Mauritian rum once you got used to drinking it straight, not mixed, you could get nicely wiped out with no hangover. Unfortunately alcohol can certainly extract a high price on people’s health. Talking about plant health, I know my nectarines tree is healthy, but I just noticed today some very small fruit have pieces out of them. I’m thinking slugs or snails. I will see what is good to kill them. I have heard a saucer of beer, might try that if the copper film doesn’t work. I may get a better quality copper film if I find the small fruit ruined. I haven’t checked out the other possible organic ways to kill slugs or snails. And assuming I can get rid of the slugs or snails, I’ll probably have the medfly to contend with. I’ll face that hurdle when I come to it, but provided the fruit are still mostly good following the snails or slugs, then I’ll try the mosquito netting again. It did work before.

    You can use old CD disks to hang in your garden. Birds dont like the light reflecting from those disks.

    Bill! Can you do a video just on your peppers? Those bushes looked beautiful.

  12. Sarah Deptula on December 13, 2019 at 6:52 am

    Are the wine cap mushrooms not enough to handle your nematodes? Are you still using them?

  13. Morgen Oghmanann on December 13, 2019 at 6:53 am

    Are some of the pest problems mitigated at all by using elevated gardening – stock tanks or tall planters, for instance?

  14. Michimama60 on December 13, 2019 at 6:58 am

    Isn’t it dangerous to eat anything right out of the garden?
    I cringed when you ate the strawberry.

    My Garden problem can’t be more different. we average 4 inch of rainfall a year.All of my stone fruits and apples tree had set fruit, with the exception of the front of the house/ north face the cherry trees and all other stone fruits trees are starting to buds and all the citrus trees and grapes are ready to burst with flower , the guava and banana trees needed more heat and I’m getting my first white sapote fruit setting and I’m hoping the cherimoya and paw paw will make it through their first year. I recently harvested strawberry and honey the the Pakistan mulberry will be ready in four week and the boysenberry shortly after, and I’ll be starting the spring vegetable planting soon. I have a colection of over 60 fruit trees not counting the berry bushes. we have two grown season here in Las Vegas. Thank you for all the garden videos especially the videos about living in Hawaii. Happy gardening.

    I have a question about the dragonfruit plant. Is the plant itself edible or used for food?

  17. Farisa Smith on December 13, 2019 at 7:08 am

    Have you tried DE, diotimatous earth ?

  18. Joseph Kranski, II on December 13, 2019 at 7:10 am

    GREAT video, Bill. You have all the gardening  "challenges" in Hawaii I thought you would have, plus a few I didn’t expect ( like those Cardinals exported from the Mainland. -Like who knew ?!! ). I was wondering though; might having a few Chickens running loose picking off the beetles & insects help you out any ?? Or would they just end up being something ELSE you’d have to Manage & worry about ? In any case, I admire your horticultural hard work & experimentation, & I wish you continued success with everything you try to grow.  🙂

    The cabbage does look happy! I’m at 1180 feet elevation, lower Puna, I’ll give it a try. Thx.

  20. St Myles on December 13, 2019 at 7:12 am

    Bill love your information concerning gardening in Hawaii. Yes Cardinal and Myna’s are my problem. Had to put bird netting on the back yard.

  21. BobMel simple living on December 13, 2019 at 7:12 am

    Gardening challenges in Paradise. Yup I understand. Best wishes Bob.

    Have you tried growing marigolds right next to the plants which are prone to nematodes? Marigolds are a reliable and natural weapon against nematodes and I think I’ve seen them growing in tropical climates like Thailand and Sri Lanka.

  23. John 3 on December 13, 2019 at 7:15 am

    Mustard greens in marigolds will solve your nematode problem plants in the ground just plant these babies around it

  24. Zavia Hope Thomas - Wounded Soul Refuge on December 13, 2019 at 7:19 am

    Does scion wood or seeds bring in the same kinds of challenges with diseases?

  25. Yokatswan Howzit on December 13, 2019 at 7:20 am

    I’m really glad that I found your channel. Now I know why some of my plants failed. Did you have any luck with garlic and potatoes? My potatoes never got larger than a golf ball
    Mahalo🤙🏽

    I have even had birds eat the Slugglo(not correct spelling)meant to kill the slugs.And it happens so fast.You put some down in the beds;and a few hours it is all gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

  27. Stan TheObserver on December 13, 2019 at 7:22 am

  28. Bricks O’ Land on December 13, 2019 at 7:23 am

  29. Dylan on December 13, 2019 at 7:26 am
