Garden playlist: Using raised beds and staggered plantings for vegetable gardens helps to shield the soil and plants form the sun, retain moisture by preventing evaporation, maximize useful planting space, prevent weeds, makes picking weeds and harvesting crops more ergonomic, and helps to keep roots cool in the heat of summer, if done right. There are a few tips and tricks that can be forgotten if out of practice, practice makes perfect they say. This video shows a few of those tips and tricks that were previously forgotten.

    You’re welcome and thanks. I? bet the Koreans have quite a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes to gardening and such, it must have been neat to see them first hand.

    Yes, It might be scarrie to watch your neighbour talking to a camera…:) but you do great job. Thanks for shareing your experiences. Daniel from Hungary.
    PS. In June I stayed at contry side of South Korea for 10 days. It was nice to see how much effort they do to make the rice (and pepper) grow… and they got the small smart tricks…which I never saw before. thanks again.?

    Allen that might be the way to go. The lady next to me has weeds all over, but her veggies look just as good and the critters aren’t getting to them. Thanks for stopping? by.

    Most around here think You Tube is for crazy people, stunts, and stuff like that. They don’t realize some folks actually? work to put out something useful. One guy just sat and stared at me the whole time I was making a video yesterday, I just waved and kept on talking to the camera. LOL!

    Just tell them to watch you on You? Tube, LOL. Jim

    Interesting! I haven’t done much staggered planting in the past, but it really works well for radishes as they mature in about 3 weeks. I planted? some white icicle radishes today. Take care Peter.

  • MiWilderness 7 years ago

    thanks? Peter.

    the victorian gardenrs used to plant the way you do in stages so as to have a range? of veggies in ‘season’

  • Peter Tampsett 7 years ago

    some good advice Roosevelt?

  • MiWilderness 7 years ago

    I don’t know a lot about cold weather crops and didn’t really? get a chance to plant during the cold season, started late. But, Kale and other cabbage or mustard family plants in general, radishes, lettuces, peas can all be planted both early and late. I’m going to plant some Swiss chard later in the season for a late fall harvest, but I don’t know if it’s considered a cold weather crop. Thanks for stopping by and asking, Roosevelt

  • supercalo79 7 years ago

  • MiWilderness 7 years ago

  • MiWilderness 7 years ago

    You’re welcome. the soil is starting to get harder to see, things are greening up? nicely now and filling in the rows. Thanks for watching and commenting, Roosevelt
