Never thought about making my own potting soil. I am definitely going to try this. I enjoyed your seedling video, Mine are still tiny but they are starting to get their 1st set of real tomato leaves.

Love your show! Might be a good idea to invest in a wireless clip on mic for more consistent audio 😀

A Garden Bounty says:

Cali Kim..other than Nasturtium just being really pretty in the garden and a great attraction for beneficial critters… Do you eat the flowers? ..I bet they’d look really great in a salad.
I’ve gone to a restaurant where they used squash blossom in salads.. very pretty.

Norman Parker says:

Can you use spagnum peat moss instead of the coco coir?

A Garden Bounty says:

Coco coir is awesome!

does coco core provide any nutrients for the plants?

LuvCali28 says:

Yay for quitting your job! Everyone looks forward to that day where they can just step out and garden on a cool, sunny morning.

A few crazy livestreams coming up? I hope you two aren’t planning on breaking across the court during any major NBA playoff games. Although I suppose it might attract some subscribers.

Love your watering can!! Here in Maryland!!!! Take care!!

ohaitherehello1 says:

I would love it if you’d do a more in depth video on cilantro! I have trouble with it every year because it seems like it grows so fast and the leaves get all thin and spindly. I basically just have no idea how to maintain it, or if it’s just supposed to be one of those one shot herbs. Thank you so much for all of your great videos!

You forgot to throw in the Fungus Knats!!
