    Cheers for this, been searching for "what to add to soil for vegetable garden" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Paylezobath Celebrated Process – (should be on google have a look )?

    It is an awesome one off guide for discovering how to incorporate amazing landscaping designs into your home without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my m8 got excellent results with it.

  3. Patti Eldred on September 12, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    Thankyou for all your tips. This year I’m moving my raised bed to the otherwise of the yard to get morning sun instead of too much shade hope it helps my peppers.

  4. Raigey raigs on September 12, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    This is my 2nd year of having a raised bed, how soon before planting your veggies would you do this?

  5. Nafeesa Damier on September 12, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Lovely

  6. Olivia Hess on September 12, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    This was so simple and easy to understand. Thank you!

  7. May McDonough on September 12, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    whats that ground cover with sparse orange flowers behind you ?

  9. Mark T on September 12, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    I love this women. And plus she’s from Cali. Whoop whoop 🙌

  10. Tracy BeWell on September 12, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Thanks, so glad to find your video – it’s chilly here today and will Benoit putting nutrients as you suggest. I have raised beds and soils pretty light already but depleted – I’m in a community garden with a compost pile and wonder if that will be enough. I’ll see if worm castings are available at the garden store I shop at… loved the doggie too! Thanks!

  11. Gregory Paulino on September 12, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Kim, Thank you for making it look so easy to prep a small garden area.
    I had just started my compost and hope it goes well. 😀👍🏻

  12. pidpit on September 12, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I know that this is 4 years later, but I’m going to be prepping a portion of my garden soon. thank you so much for the tips!

    ADORABLE dog!

  16. Xantara Borhani on September 12, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    at 8:51 , the dog seems to be staring into my soul as if to say "I see you… I will hunt you…" Or something like that…

  17. ShePlaysGuitar on September 12, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    This is a really wonderful and clear instructional video for beginners to learn how to prepare garden beds for veggie planting! Thank you!

  18. Joe Humble on September 12, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Expensive.
    Just add more mushrooms manure on top of your garden and don’t move the dead leafs and yes remove old roots .
    But anyways thabksn

  19. Susie Flores on September 12, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    I’m preparing my soil for my first raised garden bed. How long after you prepare the soil can you put plants in the garden bed? Love your videos.

  20. Stephen Moberg on September 12, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    👍

  21. 1982Jigsaw on September 12, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Cute dog at the end, and beautiful black gold (soil)

  22. pidpit on September 12, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    I just love your videos….and your dog! 😉

  23. Jessi Cebulski on September 12, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    How soon after prepping the bed should I plant seeds/plantings? Is it ok to wait a few weeks?

  24. Anna Mcgrew on September 12, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Ugh 😫 water logged soil! Well I’m learning

  25. jacobcraz on September 12, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    were those flowers by where you were planting with the lily pad looking leaves called nasturtiums?

  26. The Cycling Couple on September 12, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    nice video. did you throw that camera thats inside the bin? j/k. thats very cool editing. i made my garden bed using used deck woods. should i mix the ground soil with cow manure & top soil before planting or layer the manure over the ground soil followed by the top soil?

  27. MemoGrafix on September 12, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    You’ve are wearing gloves that’s not getting Your hands dirty. True gardeners don’t wear gloves when diggin’ in with Their hands.

  28. Patrick on September 12, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Can you plant your seeds the same day you get your garden ready?

  29. Javaria Masood on September 12, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Thankyou so much

  30. hotdammit on September 12, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Gawd I love her !! She’s addicting to watch …. I find myself studying her instead of the gardening.. And I don’t mean that in a pervy way plus I’m female…… She’s magnetic… She radiates beauty… The garden loves her too. ok enough

  31. Livleen Kaur on September 12, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    How do I tend my garden that has plants like strawberries in it that will grow again?

  32. karine castano on September 12, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Hello , I really love your videos . I’m in Canada. What compost would you recommend me buying ?

  33. Leyer Moderador on September 12, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    This is glorious, been searching for "can i mix garden soil and potting mix?" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Fonillian Uncomplex Future – (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )?

    It is a smashing one of a kind guide for growing up to 10 times more produce using aquaponics minus the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my co-worker got cool success with it.

  34. Siavash Sh on September 12, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    When is now

  35. The Bull Whisperer on September 12, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Thank you

  36. Eden E on September 12, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Lets get our hands dirty.

    Few moments later puts gloves on xD

  37. Murwyn Hancock on September 12, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Thank you!

  38. heroired on September 12, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    I don’t want to grow vegetables, I want to grow flowers, can I still follow the video?

  39. Hector Corral on September 12, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Quick question?
    I started my garden, unfortunately the weather has been cold, despite living in Southern New Mexico. Any recommendations. I’ve planted squash, tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro. I’m concerned about any diseases and could harm the seeds. Appreciate any input

  40. MTW REPAIR on September 12, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Thank you for watching the video

  41. KS Marketing on September 12, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Was there a link you could add for how to do a beginner compost to make that black gold?

  42. Lynn Suarez on September 12, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Great also love your dog

  43. Black Wolf on September 12, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Wow this is so very helpful… explained very decently and easily as well. I also like the method of thawing the soil with the tarp on the top. I’ve just started preparing my garden for the springtime and I’ve needed some help in being able to prepare it for my seeds. So this is really great! :]

  44. Marko Marelich on September 12, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    you should get your own worm farm for worm castings

  45. Leonardo Lizcano on September 12, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    This is glorious, I been tryin to find out about "how to prepare soil for organic vegetable garden" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Paylezobath Celebrated Process – (do a search on google )?

    It is a good exclusive product for discovering how to incorporate amazing landscaping designs into your home without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my buddy got amazing success with it.

  46. DonReality on September 12, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Here because I’m preparing for the "planned" food shortages that are to come in the next 3-6 months as they keep everyone comfortable before the impending chaos.

  47. Danielle Burggraaf on September 12, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Very informative video! If I want to add blood and bone would I add it with the castings and compost or wait until veggies are in the ground?

  48. Laura Hernandez on September 12, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    I need help with garden placement

  49. Ameera on September 12, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    What about if you live in an apartment and using a large pot, bag or plastic raised bed ?

  50. goddamn mag agent torture on September 12, 2022 at 7:20 pm
