    Can you do? a Small wine yard in a raised bed system I live in GA and the soil sucks here and I don’t want to spend tons of money changing the soil. I have a acre of land to play with.

    It’s gets boring to me to grow the same thing over and? over and over again. The only things i grow every year is the basic stuff i love and that goes in my lower field. In my upper field i plant new varieties and new veggies and if i i really like it i will plant it in my much larger lower field the following year.

    My question is about how? well a raised bed will drain water if the natural soil underneath your bed is clay. In many city areas, you dig down about 2 or 3 inches and you hit nothing but clay. So if you build a raised bed on top of that clay soil, won’t that affect how well your raised bed will drain? The water that falls into your raised bed has to go some where. It seems to me that it will go down to the natural soil which is clay and that might cause the water to back up into your roots.

    was wondering the? same thing.

  • Aberi2000 7 years ago

    Great video. Thanks for posting.?

  • TableWolfMusic 7 years ago

    Is there a growingyourgreens video where the composted cardboard was dug up from the bottom of a raised bed to show that? it had effectively turned into soil?

  • jgpinc 7 years ago

    Very helpful. Where do you get the organic compost? And if I’m building a 2-3′ high? bed I was thinking about 12″ of soil then a drainage material underneath like gravel, with a separator?

    Tomato plants are toxic. You should not eat them. The tomatoes are ok, though.?

  • darkklown1 7 years ago

    Im trying to find some information on how to build a raised garden bed that will? be high enough off the ground so that I dont have to bend over because of a bad back, but also see how to apply some wheels on it so that it can be mobile. This is for an apartment patio space in Watsonville Ca. And help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

  • spiceymike2121 7 years ago

    I am sure I am speaking for many… your videos are much appreciated and well made. I hope you are somehow making? some income off of it or there is some kind of reward for you. Thank you very much.

    Q3:? Would there be a? need for a few varieties with eatable leafage? Thanks!

  • SoundDesignSense 7 years ago

    Hey John; Great? Stuff!
    Q1: Can we eat the tomato plant leaves instead of composting when finished with them?
    Q2:What’s in the plant leave exactly that would keep us from eating/juicing them, as with spinach, kale, other greens?
    Thanks Again!

  • growingyourgreens 7 years ago

    they are 2 years old. I have not had to replace any due to rot. see watch?v=zuMznPX89rw for further information.?

  • NewEnglandgardening 7 years ago

    How old are your raised beds? ? Have you had to replace any yet due to rot or insect damage?

  • SnowKitingVegan 7 years ago

    thanks. Amazing!?

  • Ewan Manson 7 years ago

    Your garden looks like it cost loads of money. If you didn’t have a fancy drip system wouldn’t the beds dry out? I’m not being critical – I think it’s great what you’ve done and I totally agree with the fresh food. I have an allotment in the UK? and the idea is to do things as cheaply as possible, as the cost implications out ways going to the supermarket and buying food. Buying in tonnes of compost and using Cedar wood, rather than old crate pallets (though professional) comes at a cost.

  • cortezcortez007 7 years ago

    This is really encouraging. I’m a new raw foodist and cost of good produce was definately a major concern but I see the potential of not just cutting that cost but eliminating it altogether. So like BuddyClub I’m anxious to see your video on harvest and storage. Thanks a ton keep the video? coming. Very helpful!!

  • zekehooper 7 years ago

    John, maybe you could show us some recipes for all? the vegies? I know you eat raw but don’t you “mix and matck”?
