    Do you think this soil mix is good for Southern California where it is not as hot? Do I not need as much coconut coil? Or possibly a different mix here? A video on how to modify for climate and location would be awesome!?

    Jake, how much water do you put in to the Cocunut Coir? I just received mine and trying to put in my raised bed.?

    Do you just till the wood chips in the soil when it's time to replant for the next season or do you take out the unbroken down woodchips before you till so it doesn't suck out nitrogen??

    I forgot to ask about this in previous posts — When I lived in KS, I was disabled (as I am now) and wanted a garden i could pretty much stand at. My husband started by building a 4×8 rectangular box out of concrete blocks and building it so that it was the height I wanted. We then filled a lot of it with regular east Kansas dirt, followed by many things similar to what you put in yours. It worked well. However, we were living where the sun did not get that hot (over 100 a couple of times a year, maybe, and where there was sufficient rain. I am afraid to use blocks here because I'm afraid they may heat up and dry out the soil. Am I right to fear that? It would be nice if I could use them because I have a lot of blocks from other project. But not it it will burn my soil and plants.?

    I'm old, full-figured and love meat. I looked at you – young, in shape and a vegan and thought, "I don't know if I'll be able to learn from him or not." I've learned a lot. I gardened in Kansas where I grew up but AZ just seemed like another planet and my one try got eaten by animals. But I'm ready to try again – your explanations and videos are very informative and I just like the way you show and teach. Thanks. I will be starting at the end of summer plantings and I'll be starting small Wish me luck.?
