    Hey John, thumbs up on the video! I totally agree with you about what we feed our pets, and try to do the same… but I'm pretty sure I heard you say avocados, and then read onions as an ingredient, both are not good for dogs, I learned the hard way after mixing some of my homemade veggie soup in with my dogs food (organic, safe, never an issue before)… onions and garlic dehydrate dogs, and can cause problems. Luckily it wasn't serious and they were ok after a couple of days… just sharing some info :)

    I've tried to give my dog lettuce and she won't touch it. She will eat fruits though and really enjoys them.

    John do you have an email that I could message you with. I have a couple of question with my compost that involves straw and chicken manure that I was hoping you could help me with. Appreciate any help, thank you 

  • J Dubb 1 year ago

    Well what stuff are you feeding your dog? The question is an important one. Dog food today is killing our dogs.

    Love your authenticity John. I recall a video a while back when you were moved to tears explaining your love for what you do. I can not thank you enough brother for such positive vibes to all. I mayjust convert my garden to full aquaponics zone as a response

    my next bed, I'm going to do it square foot style

  • americanwillow 1 year ago

    Maybe people want to see what you feed your dog to get some ideas………just like your garden videos. It shouldn't be such a surprise, John.

    So you wash up on a deserted island and you find 10 edible, what plants would you want them to be?

  • Marcy RP 1 year ago

    @ 1: 24 "stuff that I would almost eat"… LOL That dried dog food? Glad to hear SOME animals like that. I just threw away a box of each of dog AND cat food… not even the feral cats liked it. It just looked like mush, but they wouldn't touch it.

    Hey John, I love your hat, haha, where can I get one. I really do enjoy your shorter versions, thanks

  • Salvador Vazquez Jr 1 year ago

    Don't know but to me John seams like he was forced to do this video. He does not look as happy like he has with the other videos. Don't know if he is getting sick or just woke up but he looks a little off to me.

  • VirtualLife 1 year ago

    Agree. There is no perfect number everyone has to follow. It all depends on each individual's plant growth rate and full potential size due to soil and climate condition.

  • Stetson Warner 1 year ago

    Dude I used to hate how long winded you were. However as I watched your videos I understand more and more what you are talking about. Keep it up bro!

  • Anna shtey 1 year ago

    Thanks for this super information video on spacing. I relocated some of my bell peppers after this video because they were too close together! So I'm going to keep on growing! ;-)
