MyChilepepper says:

I do prefer this short version John. Yes in fact I have several sweet onions, green onions, shallots and celery cut out sections growing from store bought produce now. I have also done the same from the seeds of the sweetest pomegranate, grapefruit, cantaloupe and butternut squash. Also chiles, soybeans, greenpeas, sunflower, lemon grass, turmeric, ginger, pineapple, micro green mustard, fenugreek and cloned shiitake mushroom too!!! Right now I have three apple trees growing in my yard from store bought fruit seeds and two date palms trees. Doesn't get any better. Yay!

Gerry Clough says:

Hi, we don't see Upland cress here in Australia. Can anyone advise the actual latin name?
Is it Barbarea verna which is known as land cress? The leaves seem very different to mature plants I've seen of that plant.

Oh and John – just call it potting mix – nobody can argue with that 🙂

Patrice's Projects says:

I never heard of upland cress before. Thanks for the heads up. I do prefer the short format because I have time to watch it. The long format I rarely have that much time at once.

Charisse Roberts says:

Great video, thanks again for your passion for growing the best that nature offers. 🍃🥦🥒

Ruby Official says:

wah…Tanaman Organik…

Jerold Wright says:

Great videos, great info I would give it a 9.9 out of 10. Why not 10 you ask? The videos run too long, I skip a lot of the talk most of the time, but I'm definitely a fan……………….

Oh wow never tried these but I love arugula for the pepper flavor so I’ll have to try these! Thanks John for always sharing!

Where you buy the crest?

Natasha S. says:

I've inadvertently grown oat grass, peas and tomatoes. The oatgrass from what the rabbits dropped from their bowls into their droppings underneath (I just pick it and feed it to them), and the peas and tomatoes from feed and kitchen scraps fed to the pigs.

Daniel Zukle says:

Hi John, Short format is good when you don't have a lot of time to invest. Like before you want to go to bed. That being said the long format videos are good too, because you get a wealth of knowledge from those also. Both are good. Keep up the good work.

Zennofobic says:

… go home, plant it. Look at it. Looks ready for harvest. Dig it back up again 1 min later.
