    ~ Thanks, John! I hadn’t even pondered the points your response to me shares! Instead, I’ve been pondering USED? DIAPERS with MOISTURE RETENTION CRYSTALS soaked in baby’s urine as planting hole additives! (Because of your latest JUICING in your garden kitchen video!) ~ Have you tried that, yet? (You mentioned an interest + adding urine to TREES) I’ve heard the urine-soaked diaper crystals are EXCELLENT for adding to tomatoe & other EDIBLE planting holes for dual benefits…

    In general, no. Things I do: 1. aclimate the plants. I move the plants from the greenhouse and set the plants out in the bed (or nearby)? a few days before planting. 2. Water plants before transplanting and then after.

    I have some growing? in containers.

    If it works, go for it. I personally would prefer to add a more “natural” source of phosphate, if in fact, that is what I needed to add. My first choice, would be? to add composted fruits (which have a high level of phosphate) after that I would use a rock phosphate.

    even if they cross pollinate it will have absolutly no effect on the peppers ,,, only if? you keep the seeds, than next year you will have the effects of cross pollination.

    John, What are your thoughts on including a couple of un-struck old-fashioned _matches_ into each PEPPER PLANT planting? HOLE? This is how I was taught to do it for “cheap phosphorous, way back in the ’70s… Thanks in advance! <3

  • TheConqueress 8 years ago

    He does! It’s over by the house and in full-flower _right now_ ~ The “How to Use Your Bolting Veg Leaves” video, (Before this one), shows him harvesting the white flowers & juicing them 🙂 At least that’s how I remember it…? “-) ~ Keep Growing Your Own NUTRITION! 🙂 Love Your Dedicated Efforts, John! ~ ENJOY: Sharing your videos & all the keystrokes they save me (in not having to TYPE explanations!) <3

    Hey John., I don’t mean to nitpick but feijoa is pronounced like “fay-joe-ah”. This is a? Brazilian name. BTW I love your channel!

    ? It’s simply efficient. Minimal energy input creating maximum output. Less soil, less water, less weeding, less maintenance.

    I’m just curious about cross pollination between pepper varietys? with so many varietys in the bed, I’ve got about 7 or 8 varietys started and ready to plant and have struggled to keep them separate in my garden plan, was that time wasted on my part and is it okay to put them all together?

    I? don’t understand the benefit of square-foot gardening over just planting according to their individual spacing needs?

    “Capsicum”? in Australia, isn’t it….

  • neomisterp 8 years ago

    Really enjoy the breakdown, I feel so ‘behind’ on the planting season though. I don’t think our last frost has passed where I live, but? the seedlings I started are getting their roots filled up, we’ll see how it goes.
