[Total: 0   Average: 0/5]You must sign in to vote If you have an organic vegetable garden you need to add nutrients to replace the nutrients the plants remove from the soil as they grow and produce fruit. Traditional organic gardeners add bone meal, blood meal, epsom salt, fish fertilizer, seaweed extract, organic fertilizers, etc. I show side-by-side comparisons of the same crop grown in a traditional organic garden, a Back to Eden garden and a Mittleider organic garden. The difference is shocking. RESOURCES: – Natural Mineral Fertilizer: – Step-by-Step Mittleider Gardening Course: – Join the Mittleider Facebook Group: Video Rating: 4 / 5

    I too would like? to see the vid, thanks

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    Yes, we are. All ingredients in the 13-13-13 fertilizer are approved for organic? gardening by the USDA national organics program’s national list of allowed substances. They are nutrients not chemical pesticides or herbicides. It is the chemical treatment of pests and plants that organic gardeners do not want. Myself included. For more information you can download the document at

    Mittleider “organic” garden? Are you still using synthetic 13-13-13 All Purpose Fertilizer.?

    Thank you? very much.

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    I’ll have a video update on that shortly. You can? use the Mittleider fertilizer in the buckets to get amazing results. Use 1 tablespoon per 5 gallon bucket.

    what happened with the? bucket system?

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    I think we are about 100 feet above sea level.?

    The Mittleider weekly feed works in all soil types. You do not need sawdust like I have. I am using sawdust and sand because I was starting new and could use any kind of soil mix I wanted. Order the micro nutrients from the link below the video and mix it per the? instructions that come with it. It will make a huge difference in your plant health and production. It’s all about the nutrients.

    What is? your elevation?

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    I spoke to Paul twice on the phone about what is the best tree mulch to use. He said it makes absolutely no difference. He said don’t worry about pH. He said there are lots of plant? growing under pine trees in the forest. Those are his words not mine.

  • myclem6674 7 years ago

    First off, I’m all for any method that works and your garden looks great. I watch your videos with a bit of envy that you get to start so early every year. That said, I notice that there seems to be quite a bit of coniferous material in the wood chips; is the Ph too low for the crops that you’re trying to grow?? I had amazing results with my chip garden last year but we’ll see what happens this year as I too have added quite a good amount of “needles and cones” to the mix.

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    Any gardening method must include adding nutrients to the soil to replace what the plants take out. If people use manure and don’t own the chickens or cows that is not sustainable. If they own the livestock and run out of food for them the livestock? die and their gardening method is not sustainable. At some point all gardening methods are not sustainable if you don’t have the resource to keep fertilizing. The Mittleider method allows city folk, like me,to store years of fertilizer easily.

  • katzcradul 7 years ago

    I’m seeking understanding. I? guess I’ve missed something along the way here. How is it sustainable if you do not possess the capabilities to make or create more of it yourself? (the solution of nutrients, sawdust, sand, etc.) I just drew my own conclusion from the movie that if Paul, in earnest, was trying to replicate the Garden of Eden, or even the success of the woods adjacent to his property, that naturally their would be animals fertilizing it. Thanks LDSP.

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    Paul never says to add blood & bone meal or fish fertilizer. That is? traditional organic gardening which he specifically says you don’t need to do with BTE. My wife now no longer uses either method but is now using the Mittleider method. Seeing is believing.

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    Absolutely. You don’t have to undo? all the work you have done in your garden. Just add the Mittleider weekly feed fertilizer for more than amazing results.

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    Thank you, I realize that. But as I mentioned in my video that is never said in his movie. As I learn more about what he does I realize it isn’t as simple as indicated in the BTE movies. Not everyone can have chickens and rabbits to add manure to their gardens. The Mittleider? method solves that problem by providing all the nutrients in a very inexpensive, easy to store, sustainable solution.

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    I’m glad? you are looking for solutions why your radishes didn’t grow well. I plant mine 1″ apart and have great results. I believe, as I stated in the video, it is because of lack of nutrients. The Mittleider method takes care of that problem. I have seen it do so in many gardens where the gardeners said, “Before the Mittleider method I could only get big leaves. Now I get big leaves and big fruit.” Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

  • LDSPrepper 7 years ago

    The beets were not covered. If you have seen my other Mittleider videos you’ll see I don’t have the pvc setup for the cover so I never got them covered. On? the other hand you might notice that my wife’s beets are covered and have been the whole time. They also get full sun all day while mine don’t. You are correct it isn’t a fair comparison. My wife had two very big advantages. Raised beds to warm faster. Another reason to use them instead of BTE.

  • Tom B 7 years ago

    As for the beets, I’m concerned your wife has hers WAY too close. I believe she is a Master Gardner, and I am just a novice, so I’ll defer to her. But I made this mistake with radishes last year. I had them planted super close. I got mostly tops, and little to no root. I had one with a top over 3′ tall, but no root! I mentioned my massive radishes on another one of your videos a couple days ago. They are properly spaced, as are your beets vs your wife’s. Just a? thought.

  • Tom B 7 years ago

    I don’t think this is a fair comparison. Comparing your raised beds to the back to Eden garden: were both covered in the deep cold? The raised beds will warm up quicker than back to Eden garden. Just to be fair, all variable have to be the same, aside from the soil. Why not just? take a soil sample from the root zone of each plant and see what that yields for nutrients? I’m sure the Mittleider will win then, since you basically have it on the perfect diet.
