    The fencing doesn’t have to be 6′ tall. If you attach whatever fencing you have starting at the same level as the base of the pots on the boards on the blocks, you can trellis from there. Great hack idea!

  2. Joe Nicholson on September 29, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    the soil mix you have in the bucket will go right thru the numerous holes in the bottom of the bucket !!!!!!!

  3. Universal G on September 29, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    WHATS GOING ON JAMES!!? I love your intro. It gets me all hyped up!

  4. Sugar Plum on September 29, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Why did I back away from the computer screen when the dust started flying..

  5. Andrew Beach on September 29, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    What do you do with the black pots to prevent "baking" them?

  6. PATRICIA POLIZZi on September 29, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Cheap? the bag of perlite is 52 bucks alone. This rookie thanks you for the tips, but my shoestring budget is gasping.

    13:50 it’s the opposite in the Southern hemisphere, I think – the Sun has generally a bias towards the North there

    James,
    What do you with container soil that had a plant in it that either had blight or powdery mildew?

  9. Shaliza LaCombe on September 29, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Smart guy🙏❤🤲🙂

  10. Islyn Mercurius on September 29, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I’m trying watermelon in a bag of potting mix. Yea I know crazy. Have u try’ed figs? Hopefully the pit will grow roots. Lol would my mix work. Perlite, peatmoss. Manure. Wormcasting. Bags of containers potting mix. And a little of organic fertilizer. All mix together. Hopefully a big difference this year. How can I show u pics. Feed back from u? Thanks reggie from Chicago.

  12. Savitha M on September 29, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    🙏🏼Thank you 🙂

  13. David Thorpe on September 29, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Can you reuse the same mixture for the next season? Or can you just amend it each year with some fertilizer or nutrients?

  14. Universal G on September 29, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    For my buckets, I use the Hugel method. I take twigs and small branches from trees I pruned and use that at the bottom of my buckets. It gets the mycelium growing to help the plants with nutrients. Then on top of that I put garden dirt, then compost, and then potting mix which contains perlite and peat moss.

  15. Lapis Manalis on September 29, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    If you follow this potting mix recipe for strawberries the results are insane (minus the lime, don’t need for strawberries).

  16. teresa jeffrey on September 29, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Just Thank You!!! This helps so much!

  17. Nelly Vazquez on September 29, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Awesomen, you are always very informative!

  22. Devney Worsdale on September 29, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    how often do you do the ‘feeding’ w/the top dress?

  23. Raindrop H on September 29, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    I grew squash in a smaller containers. It grew very beautiful and delicious squash. I’m planning to do the same with my tomato plants and green peppers. I purchased some potting mix too.

  24. Dandelions are free on September 29, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Great program, learned so much

  25. Finn Manuel-Miranda on September 29, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    does it have to be food grade? I’ve seen lots of other growers use non food grade buckets or storage totes.

  26. Di_from_north on September 29, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Just a comment from one of us apartment dwellers who want to container garden. Making our own potting soil like you suggest isn’t possible. Things have to be kept as simple and easy as possible for us. Most of the you tube videos don’t address this issue.

  27. Solange Pierre on September 29, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Thanks

  28. Barry Bridgeford on September 29, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Hi James. I’ve found that vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers growing in 5 gallon pails can divert a good downpour of rain out and beyond the rim of their pail, keeping their soil relatively dry! This "canopy drip-line" can also apply to large-leafed vegetables growing up a trellis in a raised bed. It occurs whenever the plants’ leaves divert the falling rain beyond the limits of the soil, in which they grow .. like in pails, planters, raised beds.

    Great instructional video.

    Online Family, be sure to use an anonymous name on YouTube especially because we are talking about prepping and pantries.

  33. Robert cornelisse on September 29, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Great video, but we made self wicking containers. So much easier to maintain then containers with holes in the bottom. We also made our own soil mixture, 1/3 peatmoss, 1/3 black cow manure, 1/3 potting mix, handfull perlite, handfull epsom salt. And through the season we used "good dirt" liquid plant food. We had great succes with cherry tomatoes, zucchini, different sorts of peppers, and much more.

  34. Greg RaginCajun on September 29, 2022 at 7:48 pm

  36. Keisha Reneau on September 29, 2022 at 7:49 pm

  37. Kellye Williams on September 29, 2022 at 7:49 pm

  38. Ashley Sloan on September 29, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Can this work for Fall gardening?

  39. A Butterfly on September 29, 2022 at 7:50 pm

  40. Family Garden Organic on September 29, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Awesome👍👍👍

  41. Joe Nicholson on September 29, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    you are talking so damn fast; I think you are leaving out things – like a piece of mesh to go in bottom of bucket in the beginning.. You are a fake !!!!!! You are not worth a damn at doing a video on how to do anything !!!!!

  42. DJ Wright on September 29, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    How about problems with animals, bugs, 🥂😷

  43. superkillr on September 29, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    I didn’t even know about food grade buckets.. thanks for the warning.

  44. Teresa Holland on September 29, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    You need to make sure your straw doesn’t have grayzon in it

  45. Paul Guerrero on September 29, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    I just started gardening at the beginning of the year 2022, I had bad luck from the start w/seedlings. But I did not give up, took me about 3 tries, mean while I got on Youtube, for ideas, and I wrote down my notes each time I had to start over. I finally learned how to prepare my soil and get some of my seedlings to sprout. Today, I got a storage container w/a lid, and I used my heating element to make holes on the lid of the container. I then sifted the potting mix that I bought & enriched it w/a formula from Youtube, and I have to say that the sifting really did make a huge difference in the end result. I also made up my mind not to buy seeds from any Hardware stores, such as Lowes or Home Depot. Good Lucky to all. Thank You…

  46. Peter Sugar on September 29, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Great video man good information as always 👍

  47. Walk The Ancient Paths on September 29, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Imagine if everyone had a garden in their backyard or patio? Why they don’t teach these basic survival skills in schools? From first grade straight through high school? I live in an apartment too. Here is my patio veggie garden. https://youtu.be/fJXVicq_h2U

    Finally can use up my rabbits poo and hay for something any extra I can sell.

  49. Tyler Pinkerton on September 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm

  50. Tom Meador on September 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm
