    Hi Kevin, I just love your energy.

    I'm currently in Puerto Rico in an AirBnb with very little sun. I'm growing radishes in containers as they are so super quick, and yummy. I like to par boil them and it takes the 'heat' out so they become like a nice vegetable and not just a salad ornament.

    Wow, Kevin, this is *excellent*!!! Very to understand even for the novice! 😃 Now that I know you exist, you're going to have another follower!!! 🙂 Excellent info even if you don't do raised beds! I've been gardening for 53 years, and continue to enjoy learning new things from fellow gardeners!

    Kevin: thanks so, so much. Great, super-pro presentation and phenomenal information. This is a must-see for anyone, especially those with limited space. This presentation really simplified and explained how one can most easily and inexpensively approach container and raised bed gardening...

    Thank you for your presentation on gardening with containers. It was very informative and helpful for me who have very little to no gardening experience. I like the idea of successive approach to gardening. I like the practical aspect and how to's  with your presentation.

    Hi Kevin, I'm a regular follower and I just wanted to know when did you plant those onions for them to be so big, and usually how long does it take to get them at a mature size? I planted some garlic last fall and they are doing good just waiting for them so I can harvest. Where did you get that seedling square?

    Marjory, that's so cool with parboiling radishes! I'll have to try that, as the "heat" has become too much for me... . Safe travels home whenever you're allowed to travel back home!!! 😃

    I've done hugelkultur and raised beds, but never combined the two techniques. I'm going to try it. Thanks, interesting presentation.

    Thanks for presenting some great ideas, but what, exactly, is your Epic soil starter? You didn't elaborate, and I searched your website in vain. Do you have a suggested formula?
