    Love your youtube page. Very informative. I do have a question – Ms. Fannin said you can’t use city water to water your garden? Why and what do you use if you don’t use city water? Thanks

    Crazy! I was working right down the road when this was filmed!!

    Wow, what a great video, Kaye! Thanks for sharing Judy with us. What a wonderful lady. I pray I’m filled with that much energy at 79 and still enjoying gardening and giving.

    Wow!!! We have at least (2) buildings downtown Pittsburgh that have a metal plate to commemorate the flood. In upstate New York in the suburbs they can not sell a house without a fence bc of the deer. The deer are so destructive in our gardens that I focus on a butterfly garden. The deer so are cute. We have the same ones so we get to know them and their fawns. One day at our other house my mother saw the fawns playing a game like ring around the rosie. One borough considered birth control for the deer, but it was deemed to be too expensive. Controlling the deer are always a discussion for the boroughs around here. The deer are also in the inner city ghetto areas. We are over run with them. We have to ask our borough to build a fence. The humidity has been 90% on some recent days and others leading up to it. The powdery mildew on my pumpkins is extreme. I am no longer finding Monarch eggs:-( I have a lot of caterpillars in my garage next to my rabbits. I took a round patio table and turned a netted collapsible laundry basket over it and put tulle around it to protect the caterpillars. Some Monarchs are still flying so I guess they don’t plan to go to Mexico? Our drought has caused my huge sunflower that I got from Johnny’s cover crop section to fall. I planted one seed by our light post and it well exceeded it. It also branched. It was so heavy and became so fibrous that I can see why it fell. Cosmos has not bloomed yet so the nitrogen level is still too high. Some are taller than me. My cardinal/cypress vine is in it’s beginning bloom stage so it is less sensitive to high nitrogen than cosmos, which has not even budded. I stationed cosmos at my tunnel ends and they look like little trees. It does provide some privacy since my garden is on a main road. I have yet for my August planted Brussels to germinate. Long Island Improved from Rareseeds that I planted in July is growing slowly. The Georgia collards that I also got from there have been growing all summer and provided a host plant for the cabbage moths. This is ok bc they will stop flying in October and the collards will do just fine. I may go out and plant parsnip seeds today bc I want their spring flowers. This was a wonderful tour. Mrs Fannin and her family brought their Alabama culture to Kentucky. My father is from AL and his mother had a garden to die for, just in the backyard.

    Yay! YouTube hasn’t been notifying me of your vids, so I went hunting & so glad I did. What an incredible lady! She doesn’t look anywhere close to 79. She’s bringing such joy, kindness & a sense of tradition, history to so many people. It’s evident that she’s got that wisdom of the land that is hard earned through years of growing/farming; passed down thru generations. You meet the most awesome folks! I hope your recent trip went well. Hope you’ve even been able to get a moment of relaxation here & there. Well, I’ve got some more Late Bloomer to watch! Thanks for another superb vlog!

    Wow., loved this…very inspiring. I hope I have that much energy at 79. I couldn’t catch the name of that bean that she liked so much. Would love to try those next year in my garden.

    not sure I agree with some of what she says. Ive grown all kinds of potatoes near other crops and they do just fine. Purple potatos dont kill other plants.

  8. Willow Isle on May 24, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Wow…I am so jealous of her energy💛

  9. Heidi in the hollyhocks on May 24, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    How does she irrigate her garden?

  10. Thehealingberrygarden on May 24, 2020 at 5:57 pm

    Such a wonderful lady! I wish I had her energy. 😉

  11. CJ Verde on May 24, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    Well Madam you have outdone yourself. You have found a gym who has crossed the threshold of century. She has been touched by the memories of the old ways. She is in touch with those who are younger. I think it’s phenomenal her breath of knowledge and she shares it anyway that’s not like sitting in Horticultural class. Which is a wonderful thing. Hats off to you again.

    Morning Kaye, I must say just when I think you cannot out do yourself, you come up with this wonderful video. Judy Fannin is an amazing woman and her garden was just as amazing. I do not know how she does it at 79 years young. She is so full of energy and passion for what she grows and gives to her community and friends. I do not normally go and buy someone’s cookbooks, but I am going to have to get Judy’s cookbooks. Thank you for this video. Well, its time to go out and see what last nights storm has left me, we had a tremendous thunderstorm hit us right around dark and continue into the evening. I needed the rain, but not the high winds. I had put off harvesting some more of my beans, cucumbers, squash and tomatoes till this morning, the plants were heavy with their fruits. So now we will see what isn’t on the ground. That’s gardening though, you take what is offered by the grace of God. You take care Kaye, stay safe out there and God Bless You.

    Mr. Tom

    What a beautiful garden. We would have liked to have heard more from her friend, Kim Jenkins. Would love to see Kim’s garden and an interview with her.

    Order Judy’s cookbooks: https://www.etsy.com/shop/cookwithjudyfannin or write to her at: judyfannin@gmail.com (copy the whole address and paste into an email) When YouTube’s CC tool is functioning properly, I will CC this video so you can catch every word. This was an impromptu garden tour, with rain threatening, and it was all I could do to keep up with this energetic woman!

  16. Sharon Giles on May 24, 2020 at 6:21 pm

    What a treasure

  17. Patti Hayden on May 24, 2020 at 6:21 pm
