Take a moment and join me in the garden! Despite hail, wind, torrential rain and high temps, the garden is doing some amazing things. How does it do it? I have a not so secret weapon. So simple and so effective! Check out my side by side comparison of plants grown with compost tea and those without.

    @gameplay1999 I’ll try to remember to include it on a video before frost hits.

    why are you not showing us your grape vines, i would like to see it

  3. Praxxus55712 says:

    @steveguil I get those gray (grey? grei?) spots on the leaves every now and then. I always assumed it might be fungus since it’s been rainy and humid, but it never harms them. The newer leaves are bright green with no spots. They’re running amok as I type this. I don’t worry about it and unless your plants are falling apart or not producing, I’d suggest not worrying.

    Ray, what is causing the gray spots on your cucumber leaves? I have that all over my summer squash, cucumbers, and melons. Is there a better way to control it in the future other than just removing contaminated leaves, or is it not a concern?

    @peppersnsmartpots Thanks for the compliment on the garden! 🙂

    I think the aerated brewers are good, but I love making and using the steeped tea. It really works wonders and for a lazy bastard like me it’s perfect! lol

    Great looking organic garden! I wish I had that kind of space to grow my veggies. I like how much compost you make there but you my friend should build yourself a areated compost tea brewer. A 50gal brewer would be perfect for your giant garden. Use the largest air pump available. Not the little aquarium air pumps so many use here on youtube. I add some alfalfa and kelp meal along with the compost/worm castings and some organic blackstrap molasass to feed the microbes.

    @Praxxus55712 Thanks nice video I like Webcajun, I watched his beans and onion video’s before never noticed the spray one, thanks!

  8. Praxxus55712 says:

    @ivankinsman I planted the shallots around 8 inches to a foot apart. They multiuply into multiple bulbs fast unlike onions. They’re not crowing each other out though so that’s very good. I haven’t moved yet. That sucks about the blight problem you get over there Ivan.

  9. Praxxus55712 says:

    @bcgarden2010 I started with 24 plants. They multiple like rabbits. It only took a couple years to get this many.

  10. Praxxus55712 says:

    @TABULOUS1 I wouldn’t think so.

  11. ivankinsman says:

    In notice you have very good onions and that you part them very close. We, as everyone else in Poland, has had a terrrible year for cucumbers – some people have had to plant 2-3 times. With tomatoes, we often get tomato blight and not sure how to stop it. By the way, is this yoru new house or are you still in the old one?

    wow! That strawberry bed is amazing! 😀 how many plants did you start with and how many years before it looks like that?!? I’m thinking of sticking my strawberry planter in the middle of a raised bed and letting it run amok… 😉

    @eddegoei I’ve heard of garlic spray. I haven’t tried it yet. A friend of mine Donald has a channel called Webcajun. He has a demo of an effective easy bug spray. The video is called Home Made Bug Spray. He uses soap and peppers and it has a pretty good result. If you have a minute, you might want to check it out and see if you want to use his easy recipe for kiiling aphids. I hope this helps.

    Nice video as ever! I need more compost oh and water it is 38C down here and basically everything stopped growing or dropped the flowers…… Any idea on fighting aphids on my cucumber? Ever made garlic spray?

  22. Praxxus55712 says:

    @21sraj That’s a great idea…………unless I’m your neighbor. 🙂

  23. 21sraj says:

    @Praxxus55712 i kno what to do with bugs and pests. I tell them that my vegetables are not as good as the ones that my neighbor grows every year so they live my garden, because who wants to eat crap right? hehehehe :). I am 20 and I love to learn about growing veggies and cooking them plus you make my day!

    @LaoSoftware It’s an Elephant Ear. And holy smokes the leaves get even Bigger! Today it tried to kill me but I was too fast. I hit it with a coffee can and said “NO! No cutting in line!!”.

    Come to think of it, I think that was the lady who cut in line at the supermarket. oops nevermind.
