    como se llama el plastico que usas?

    Your garden looks great, despite the frost you encountered but I would advise NOT cutting the WHOLE heads of lettuce at a time. ONLY cut off what will be consumed for that meal. That’s the same with just about ANY plant, unless harvesting for canning for winter.

  9. Awakened Soul on November 27, 2019 at 6:12 am

    Beautiful garden!!! Can you tell me where you purchased the seeds from? I want to purchase a seed vault and wanted to know if the seeds were from a vault or local store? I also used the fabic to keep the weeds down etc..

  10. Anna Pace on November 27, 2019 at 6:16 am

    What you recommend if my yard soil is not great for gardening? Also why do you have the black in your garden?

  11. Italian_Flag on November 27, 2019 at 6:20 am

    In the UK we cut the scrapes off the top of garlic and onions so they dont produce seeds, we use them in stir fries and soup.

    When do you plant purple hull peas in North Texas

  13. DigginTheEarth Gardener on November 27, 2019 at 6:21 am

    One of the best gardening videos I’ve seen so far! thanks

  14. Ponna on November 27, 2019 at 6:21 am

    Nice garden

  15. fishekiss nelson on November 27, 2019 at 6:24 am

    I have another idea to hold down weeds and hold in moisture, use 4-6 in layer of wood chips, the plants will love it, you just have to rake the chips once a year to prevent composting of the wood chips themselves.

  16. Nightverslonn on November 27, 2019 at 6:25 am

    what happens when you get to the heat of summer? do you just let them die or is there a way to make it to fall?

  17. lilly of the valley on November 27, 2019 at 6:25 am

    First time gardener and I love it! Beautiful garden btw!

  18. Maayong Aga on November 27, 2019 at 6:26 am

    Beautiful garden…this is how I saw my dad made his garden in the Philippines….is that turp used to protect from frost?

  19. Jellie Bombshell on November 27, 2019 at 6:26 am

    When I saw the first shot of your veggie garden, I knew the design was perfect for mine! I’m restoring an 18th century walled garden in England. Its been neglected over past hundred years or so and it’s a mass of weeds and decaying trees. It’s primary use seems to have been a place to dump trash – I’m unearthing all kinds of broken pottery and glass. Your design fits in very nicely with my idea of how a vegetable garden should look. Thank you very much for all your hard work – it’s going to be replicated in Spring over here!

  20. Milk And Honey Acreage on November 27, 2019 at 6:29 am

    I hope we dont get an October frost like some are saying!

  21. John Crypto on November 27, 2019 at 6:32 am

     you should do straw and soil potato towers  and trellis the cucumbers .  very very nice garden . may have to post mine sometime 😀

  22. Happy Small Homestead on November 27, 2019 at 6:33 am

    What’s the size of your vege garden?

  23. kyle hanson on November 27, 2019 at 6:33 am

    What does the black cloth on top of the soil surrounding the plants do?  I live in north texas where the weather should be the same and want to start a small garden of peppers and tomatoes.

  24. Jaywhy FromTheStreet on November 27, 2019 at 6:34 am

    Tfs 🙂 love these type of videos

  25. Rose Blake on November 27, 2019 at 6:34 am

    Brandon, I used the Black Fabric as well. It works wonderful! No weeds! In Texas, we have a lot of weeds…I live in the Frisco area.

  26. SocratesOfHealth on November 27, 2019 at 6:36 am

    I’m thinking of moving to Texas. What type of fruit trees grow out there if I may ask?

  27. Enrique Hernandez on November 27, 2019 at 6:36 am

    Just started my own garden. Mostly hot peppers and herbs. Also in Texas. Glad to actually see a great garden growing out here. The wife and I just arrived from California.

  28. thebes1 on November 27, 2019 at 6:36 am

    Nice garden! I just started gardening myself. I have a medium size cinder block garden. I put the materiel on the bottom before I added my dirt to prevent grass and weeds. I suppose some weed seeds could blow into it though? I am in Texas also, zone 9 here on the coast.

  29. EcoJona on November 27, 2019 at 6:37 am

    What is the name of the plastic you use?

  30. Deserie Drew on November 27, 2019 at 6:38 am

    So when do you want to start planting seeds if you live in San Antonio? Feb?

  31. Jonathan Eastman on November 27, 2019 at 6:38 am

    Great video ! Thx

  32. KeeganAPEX on November 27, 2019 at 6:39 am

    Nice garden but most people seem to realize that planting your own garden isnt cheaper than buying because you need fertilizer & water plus effort & time & loss some plants will die on you

  33. c lenny on November 27, 2019 at 6:39 am

    how do you store your harvest…newbie to gardening. I plan on canning and freezing. I do have a root cellar but unsure about temps and all that good stuff. any tips or videos of harvest storing?

  34. marc benoit on November 27, 2019 at 6:40 am

    Love this series….WOW

  35. KeeganAPEX on November 27, 2019 at 6:42 am

  36. Rocko777 P. on November 27, 2019 at 6:43 am

    It happed to me one time.

  37. G M on November 27, 2019 at 6:43 am

    paris island lettuce you can also use cut & come again. so you get more than one day of salad.

  38. Brandon & Meredith on November 27, 2019 at 6:45 am

    Yes, definitely the weeds seeds will blow in. They grow on top of my weed fabric! Crazy!!! Thanks for watching!

  39. Rida Ponce on November 27, 2019 at 6:45 am

    You can use the onion bulbs(Don’t wait until they bloom) and stems for stir fry of any kind…They are edible and delicious!

  40. Harris Cluddy on November 27, 2019 at 6:49 am

    looking good, love it! miss having my own garden since I relocated to MI

  44. TIm Raidt on November 27, 2019 at 6:53 am

    Just starting out in North McKinney. Need some advice about this crazy weather and When to start. It’s warm, it’s cold. Im thinking Colorado was a cake walk.

  45. Anna Pace on November 27, 2019 at 6:54 am

    Oh I live in Dallas Texas and last year I gardened in large pots

  46. TheBushdoctor68 on November 27, 2019 at 6:56 am

    There’s another reason to pick blackberry plants with thorns: They taste much better than the hybrid kinds without thorns.

  47. Gardening With Puppies on November 27, 2019 at 6:56 am
