  • Good day Mark! I just wrote a ty message to your Channel. My Mark inspired raise bed is under a big mangoe tree with minimal sunlight (in Manila). In one of your videos, you recommend herbs which I just sowed today. What else can I grow in my sunlight limited bed? Stay safe Mate!

  • Mark, you’re a prophet. Thank you for teaching me and so many others to be more self sufficient! It’s vitally important now more than ever.

  • Thanks Luke, I have been tuning into your gardening tips this summer and have learned a lot! Appreciate your knowledge and sharing of gardening. Usually watching your videos while cooking or cleaning and freezing my veggies. Making dog food now while watching the deep watering video, using my carrots, green beans and some sweet potato and parsley! Always learning something each video��

  • I agree capitalism and centralising power letting another person run your life is not freedom.Growing your own gives you some freedom.fucker sheemas sake lmao

  • I’m not buying the hint about the warm water going down to the roots. The water coming out of the hose is cool ( I have a well). I do believe most people over water their plants.

  • You’ve inspired me to grow my own this year, quite proud to say I managed to get lemons, pomegranates, mango and avocados to sprout, would love to get my mitts on a bee hive or two, too many veg and fruit to list but everything thing is sprouting like mad:D I also live in near the Arctic in Canada:D

  • I love having an extra space because there are always exciting risks I want to take and if any of them pan-out, I have gifts to give to family, neighbors, friends, coworkers and strangers. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve grown things thinking, “Maybe I’m wasting my time.” But inevitabley there is always someone that comes along looking for or needing the excess growing in my garden:).

  • What’s a cruiset? in American?…type of raddish, turnip….. Thanks for showing how much water to water in. It’s always annoying to me no one shows that.

  • We need to find a cure for “Affluenza”…..too much of a throw out world for shirts sake we get 3 Zucchini from Aldi…for a couple of bucks…but hell its 3 bloody Zucchini on a thick beautiful tray….luckily we keep them and reuse them…but how many tons get dumped..??

  • Thank you very much for this info! I watch a lot of your videos and I find your straight forward demeanor very helpful and easier to follow instructions that way. You get right down to it and leave out all the fluffy stuff. So thanks again! I’m really glad I saw this video before I made another mistake. Because I’m pretty sure I killed one of my plants doing the complete opposite of what I should have done on a very hot day. Thanks to you, I won’t be making that mistake ever again!

  • Sound asleep here in the States. Woke up, turned on the cell phone, and noticed a new upload from Mark. I about fell out of my bed with laughter at the “Chernobyl Cucumber” and the “For Fukushima Sake” comments. Just the best! A thousand thumbs up and best Youtube original of the year. Thanks for the laugh. Couldn’t stop laughing even though it’s such a sad truth. People shouldn’t being dying from the food they eat. It’s shocking how much of our food, oils and everything we eat are saturated with toxic Monsanto Round-Up and other herbicides and pesticides.

  • Also if you let cucumber ripe just 1 fruit it will stop producing, leaving the rest of the small fruit setting to die (mine does anyway, it is a “virgin” type, only setting female flowers) I simply love it and hope I can get a similar next year:D (school-cucumber, small sweet ones, we call them that in Denmark:)

  • Argh! I just watered and fertilized yesterday, and my husband treated our roses, trees and grape vine for Japanese beetles. Sigh.
