One Fine Day
even when you are not smiling..your eyes look like youre smiling...such a pleasant and well natured guy you are :)
John, everything is indeed bigger in Texas. Thank You.
This is such an epic event. It's even scientific. This isn't even about silly food size contests, this is an unreal way to look at the way we get our food, the stuff we eat, and why it's so terrible!

I wish I could have made it up there. I live so close! I found out about it in the Baker Creek Seed Catalog.
that tree reminds me of Grandmother Willow from Pocahontas lol
it's very well made, also looks very well constructed
but it really freaks me out lol

John, is there a web site or magazine where one can find these types of events in advance? I was too sad I missed the New York event -Woodstock.

I love fishing

Have you posted a video on Heirloom Banana Melons?
Teresa Fawkes
John you are AWESOME!
New Azomite!!! Hey John. Have you heard about the new micronized Azomite that will be coming out probably next spring? I spoke to a guy on the east coast who informed me about it. He says that it goes through an even finer screen mesh to make the micronized version even smaller, almost water soluble. He says the might call it nano Azomite.
Wow! I had no idea there were so many varieties... Do you know why they only offer such a small variety at the grocery store??
Hey John,

Whats the seed company from Italy called? I couldn't hear when you said it.
you did not show us your booth we all would have liked to see it.
thanks for sharing! what is the name of the company tht sells the european seeds? thanks!!
would love to find one here or around here in albany or...
do you know of any main 'source' of where i can find out if have one localy.
county extension dkdnt 'think' we had one...
Great Video, but a bit too far for me, I'm on the East coast. Do you have an URL for the seeds you showed us? The ones from other countries? I'm also going to check out the seedmatters site too. Thank you!
I noticed that under my husky cherry red tomatoe plant has mushrooms growing under the plant. This was my very first plant I ever grew I use 1 bag mirical grow potting/ garden soil with 2 bags mirical compost with 1 bag worm compost in a 4x4 4ft deep box. Should I dig out all mushrooms I'm afraid that it might affect the tomatoe plant . Thanks for the help
What is the better composter for a apartment/ flat a wormcaster or a BOKASHI EM ?
michael stanger
I wish I could make it.
Leave them be, the soil may be too wet, however mushrooms can be a beneficial and a sign of a healthy soil. Sometimes they grow on uncomposted wood, symbiotically with other roots, or in rich soils.
Wish I could go...
How did you draw such a conclusion?

My understanding of Monsanto is just that they want to stamp out competition while self preserving their position, which is essentially the goal of everyone and every entity in a Capitalistic system and they do it quite well.
I want to try all the watermelons. Do they all taste the same?
wish i was on the west coast.
Merah Delima
How long we can keep the seeds? Thanks
Allen Hannah

Because Monsanto is run by fascists, not unlike Ray / Praxxus. They want as much control over everything, and want to stamp out individualism and liberalism.
