Dogs are obligate carnivores. They really are not designed to eat a lot of vegetables and fruits... Whole-prey model foods, including the organs and fats, comprise nearly the total diet of the ancestors of our dogs. Dogs that eat too many foods from plants will develop digestive problems, and other health issues over time. People, do your research, and make sure your sources are not pet food companies, or vets that pet food companies market aggressively to! (Did you know that most vets are NOT trained in nutrition? Like most physicians.)

The cast iron tub should be up on bricks, blocks, or even wood to prevent rusting out on the bottom. Adequate drainage can be obtained by making sure the bottom slants toward the drain hole. These tubs were lined with porcelain and are about as non-toxic as you can get! (They are even better used for bathing. Their depth allows healthful soaking. Modern tubs are most all made of PLASTICS.)

Dear John - It is not 'larger parts of plastic' but the chemicals that plastics are made from and with that transfer to the air, soil, water, food, skin... -whatever plastics come into contact with- that are the issue when growing food in plastic containers. And yes, these chemicals and/or their 'breakdown products' are taken up by plants. Mercury is also used in the manufacture of some plastics, which can also be taken up by plants. Whenever possible, plastic containers, like pressure-treated lumber, should be avoided... especially where one is growing food. There are plenty of cheap and free options. UNTREATED pallets, for one. (Check to see that they have not been chemically treated or sprayed.)

Jefferdaughter How do you check to see if the pallets are untreated?

Among temperate climate trees, many are edible when the first emerge in the spring: elm, maple, basswood/linden, redbud, etc. Redbud is one of our favorite, along with basswood. Basswood, aka linden, leaves are edible for a longer period of time, basically all summer, though they can be tougher and stronger in flavor during periods of hot or hot and dry weather. Redbud trees are a wonderful small ornamental tree that also produce pea flavored blossoms - in abundance! The young pods are also tasty when cooked, a lot like snow peas. An ornamental tree for your front yard that produces 3 edible crops! Plant hostas underneath and use the leaves like spinach, or instead of breads to make wraps. Add some daylilies (shoots, buds, and blossoms all edible), and you have an ornamental planting for the front yard that also produces food - even where growing food in the front yard is banned. There are many more edible ornamental perenniels - nut and fruit trees, fruiting shrubs and vines, etc!

'Black' has been used to describe rich soil and good compost - but if the soil or compost is really black it is BAD. Black soil and compost is anaerobic, and full of harmful, pathogenic organisms. Healthy soil and compost is actually a deep, rich shade of dark brown - the color of dark chocolate. T he ideal texture is a lot like a dark chocolate cake, crumbly with structure that allows water and air into the soil. Beneficial soil organisms and plant roots need air!

Of course, there is no 'empty space' on this property. The unmanaged areas are alive and productive: capturing sunlight, putting organic matter/carbon into the soil, cooling the air and soil, producing oxygen, providing food and shelter for wildlife, preventing soil loss to wind and water erosion... to name just a few of the ecological services that 'empty space' provides.

Is there a dry season in Florida?
Jefferdaughter (3 месяца назад)
Love the channel, but what about the people who live in temperate climates, instead of desert (Las Vegas, So Cal), Mediterranean, or sub-tropical regions - all areas that see little frost and no snow.

I so want to do this! Thank you for sharing. On a side note, dogs are meant to eat a RAW meat prey diet. I have been feeding my dog and cats a prey diet for almost a year now and have studied and researched to learn what is best for them....what nature meant for them to eat. There is so much info out there. Please don't cook your dog's meat. Give him a whole chicken and see a happy dog.

That deep of wood chips (several feet) may become anaerobic. In one area I had 18 inches deep of chips and underneath it, next to the soil, it became a sewer smelly dead zone as no oxygen could get thru. I love woodchips though, that is my go-to, but I now keep them no more deeper than 10-12 inches, but what ever works

Since your source for pine needles is probably not green, they are NOT acidic. Collecting old pine needles is pointless if you are trying to acidify your soil. The second point is that even when fresh, pine needles are only slightly acidic and therefore can have limited effect on changing the pH of the soil. Pine needles do not bring down soil PH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_B8-1sVcfzE&ab_channel=OYRFrugal%26SustainableOrganicGardening http://www.forestindustrycouncil.com.au/factsheets/f2.pdf

I live in Florida and we have layers of cardboard and wood chip mulch. Yes the soil is literal fine beach sand, particularly in my area I live next to sand plants. You can't grow anything that doesn't like the sand in the ground. Raised beds out of concrete because if it's out of wood, it only last one season until it rots. Raised beds need to be off the ground or the soil amendment is leeched away and pests are voracious. It's uphill battle to farm in Florida organically, (without fertilizer and pesticides),which I refuse to use. So, I eat almost entirely bananas lol!
ScouseJack (7 месяцев назад)
Hope you're into bio-char, growing in those conditions. Terra Preta is a good idea for you i think.
MrMedukneusha (8 месяцев назад)
Growing edible vegetation is fantastic and all...but if you live in the semi-tropical zone and cant get something to grow, wtf are doing? Love the idea of "Food Forests". Myself being from a moderately-high altitude desert. Any greenery beyond pine trees and sage brush is rare and hard to find naturally. So when i see all these food forest videos in florida or the east coast in general i'm like "wts, you're surrounded by growth to the extent that its a nuisance." Just musing out loud, fun vid. I'm here to steal ideas and knowledge.

Brother, the topics and subjects you cover as well as the places you visit are great. However, you talk way too much! It's unbearable. My wife and I even stopped watching your videos because of it. Do not be offended rather consider that for your viewers. Or try to change your speaking style.

Anette How did setup your hydroponics system and why did you do hydroponics instead of aquaponics?

Dehydrate the bananas. What are the conditions that you need to plant banana plants? I live in California and I love bananas but not sure what conditions you need.

I make an egg-based dog food with our own organic eggs. I add kale, flax, rice or rolled organic oats, blueberries and sometimes whatever other whole foods we have available. I bake it in a ductch oven. The dogs love it, they think they are getting treats. Kibble is mostly junk but admittedly I'm not completely off it yet. It's tough to find time to cook for the dogs with everything else we have going on. I do usually make a large batch and freeze a portion.

Hey John, After watching your videos I started using rock dust in my raised box beds and I can now cram so many veggies in those boxes and succession plant. The plants get huge! I am now a convert for rock dust and azomite. I compost with hen manure, straw and all my garden debris, and now grow through the winter in Maine, in my greenhouse. Thanks for the positive attitude and inspiration. I especially admire how accepting you are to people doing their own thing.

I wonder how Irma effected the permaculture, especially the woodchips?
Polly Wog (1 год назад)
Buster Brown The wood chips helped absorb lots of the rain water so it will break down very quickly so I will be busy adding alot more. The food forest took a hit but the bananas took most of the wind and they come back quick.

I looked up edible hibiscus and it showed the Roselle. We have Roselle, we call it cranberry hibiscus and it tastes like a mild cranberry. The tea is great and lowers blood pressure. I'm thinking your edible leaf hibiscus is a different plant and can't find it. Can you elaborate?
Nancy Fahey (1 год назад)
Polly Wog thank you, the cranberry comes back every year by seed. Where ever it wants to. But now I know there are different kinds. Ya
Polly Wog (1 год назад)
Nancy Fahey I have many types of hibiscus. The main ones are the cranberry hibiscus (roselle) and thai roselle (false roselle). The thai hibiscus is perennial.

Don't worry ,nature knows best , the soil balance itself ,  if our body   is acid , tend to promote bad cells to develop and develop all kind of diseases  , but Acid fruits as lemon or  lime when you consume your body transform it  to Alkaline , In a different kind of acid that is promoting our immune system to get stronger., when you consume natural healthy food our body graduate what it need and the rest goes out .

What a lovely lady Claire is and I just would like to encourage others like Claire by complimenting your view of "Being successful" .Here we go this is my spin on Being successful, as follows : . Success is all about "SOLVING PROBLEMS" a FAILURE only occurs when you cannot solve a problem. Now that does NOT mean that whatever your doing is the right way, sometime you have solve the problem by doing something else completely different to obtain the same goal, other times an adjustment is necessary, either way you can obtain your initial goal by simply "SOLVING PROBLEMS" and that is what I call being "Successful". So thank you both Claire and John for your efforts, because by this definition you are a SUCCESS story for OTHERS.

I'd be careful what I used pallet wood for. I worked at an import store & pallets come across the ocean & are sprayed with chemicals like pesticides & fungicides. It makes me feel a little sick when I see dining tables, bars & even kids furniture made out of that stuff when I remember how strongly it smelled of chemicals. Also, packaging splits open & spills God knows what onto the wood. I'd be ok with using it for fences but not raised beds, I wouldn't want to lean on it even when I gardened. Some pallets are heat treated instead, but you still don't know what it held previously ( bio waste, etc?)
Polly Wog (1 год назад)
mewendy1 All the pallets were heat treated and also left outside for over a year before used and have decomposed nicely.

WTG Annette! One wheelbarrow at a time, I can relate. As a Tampa area gardener I struggled with "northern" vegetables and I too have gone Asian on many varieties. Loofah was a cool crop last year, but didn't eat them as I wanted sponges. I know now I don't have to worry about not having enough sponges! Asian long beans do real well too. Hope to visit one day. John thanks again for sharing!

JC Stanton (1 год назад)
papaya doesn't need name brand seeds. use a good fruit and treat the tree well and almost always you get very good papayas, often better than the parent. most "name-brand" papayas aren't chosen for flavor anyways but rather disease resistance and long shelf life. (I grow 1000+ papaya trees) Most tropical trees that haven't been too modified by humans grow very well from seed.
Polly Wog (1 год назад)
JC Stanton Out of over 20+ trees only one had an off flavor and they are all from seed with many more on the way.

I plan to put 3 or4 more.4×8 beds in it. however, right now I have an aphid problem in my potato bed. I have tried several organic remedies, but they have not worked. Help? I don't want to loose my plants they are growing so well.
WJ Miranda (1 год назад)
The woodchips bring a lot of water Beetles & bugs, so some of these bugs including worms eat your leaves and I'm not talking red friendly worms - the mulch would have to be sprayed with a sugar solution to get rid of the bad bugs if growing edible leaves yes- What do you suggest? Thank you!
11219tt (10 месяцев назад)
WJ Miranda curious about your claim. Is this your experience? Do you have these issues? Ive never heard of heavy mulch gardens bringing in pests. In fact I’ve heard the opposite because it’s creating a symbiotic relationship between plants and pests and soil.
WJ Miranda (1 год назад)
LOL! Kikis think translate to babies too-that was cute. Well this video came to my notification just on time. I moved to FL from Southern California 4 years ago and farming has been on my mind; been learning through a lot of your videos & other farmers tips to say you guys are a blessing. Thank you for all the great videos and yeah my stress was all the sand throughtout the state but watching this I feel better. Wow she has Cassava, Green Bananas- Jicama you also cut Mango, cucumber pieces, Papaya, Coconut & Water Melon sprinkle some Pico de Gallo Powder over fruit, a couple of pinch of salt and squeeze a lime over fruit shake or turn and good eats- yum!!
