    I'm a gardening newbie so I really do appreciate your comments (although we live in the Pacific Northwest, so — some differences). I read, to the extent that sometimes my husband isn't all that happy that he got me a Kindle for Christmas a couple years ago. So, I was excited to see you recommended some books. But where is your list (bibliography) connecting to where we can buy them (and earn you money)?

    "Grow what you want to grow". Excellent, yet simple, advice! (Life if short; eat dessert first!)

    We compost all edables . We do not turn it at all. It rots and the worms do the rest. when our garbage bucket is fool it goes on the compost pile . In the spring or when we need compost , we rake off the un composted materials, and sift the compost, and use the material that falls through: Then throw back the larger part to be finnished. our family of four generates about a cubic yard of compost per year.

    What is your favorite fig for taste with a closed enough eye to keep most of the dried fruit beetles out? Have you ever thought about pouring sackcrete in your blocks around your raised garden? No need to wet it. It'll set up from rain and soil moisture

    Thank you for the great videos. I an really enjoying them and have been binge watching in my free time. I've been gardening for several years but enjoy learning new things, like using cinder blocks, topping peppers and how you can  compost everything. I really appreciate the time and effort you spend in researching the topics and making and editing your videos and enjoy watching you and Sam working together. He's learning a lot from helping you and does a great job. Thanks again!

    You can treat/varnish the cinder blocks to stop the leaching of chemicals can't you?

    What’s your deal with Asian fruit and why is it so strange? lol just kidding
    Finally a good Texas garden channel
    …I always wanted to use cinder blocks but started hearing about the toxic fly ash n stuff and decided not to use them but as I’ve put more thought into it I believe I will use them in a similar fashion as yourself…should fill the holes with gravel or rocks and maybe just lay a longboard down on the blocks to soften your seat …
    Hey awesome channel I subbed …very informative keep it up sir

    If growing indoor"s. ? Due to dry air, add 8 to 10 large water containers, lots of moisture to the air.

    My soil was full of big rocks and small rocks…so the big rocks became raised bed containment bricks the small rocks found their way to holes in the driveway. I only say something because I've seen people pay to get rid of rocks. Everyone who finds big rocks gardening could even build their own flintstone style house…growing a house from the garden…lol..many "invasive species" have high medicinal or nutritional benefit…perhaps monsanto and pharma lobbied for that kind of title for beneficial plants. I enjoyed your video, thank you for your content.

    You probably heard about Howard Garrett. Here is his link to his library of gardening topics. Short to the point. https://www.dirtdoctor.com/dirtdoctor-library

I appreciate your help

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I found them really refreshing and freeing! I have no idea what I am doing as a first time gardener and now feel happy just to have a go and to have fun while doing it! Incidentally, I have just discovered some figs growing on my property. No idea how they got there or how to tend to them or what type even? I guess they’ve been doing fine on their own so will probably keep keeping on! LOL New subscriber here! Happily! Many thanks again!

    Cinder blocks is the way to go! I started out with wood raised beds. Love how they look, but the termites loved how they taste, even the treated ones. I have to agree with you on the weedy holes.

    Speaking of growing something different! I got myself strawberry guava, pineapple guava, raspberries (none of which are commonly grown here). So excited to see the guavas flowering after 3 years!

    What about hard plastic sleepers instead of the cinder blocks? Plastic is incredibly slow to leech, can get recycled ones, smooth and can be a lot thinner than the bricks.
