    Why You Should Never Buy a Lifetime Composter
    Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens



    Published on Apr 13, 2017
    John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shares with you his experience with the Lifetime Composters he purchased and shares with you why you should never purchase a lifetime composter.

    In this episode, John shares the major problems he has had with the Lifetime Dual Composter Model 60072 and Lifetime Dual Compost Tumbler Model 60130. You will see the request John sent to the Lifetime Products to get his composters fixed under warranty and to date, has not gotten satisfaction on his request.

    You will then discover how John finally got the problems he had with the Lifetime Dual Tumbling Composters resolved thanks to Costco, that has one of the best return policies of any retailer.

    You will then discover the composter that replaced the poorly designed Lifetime Dual Compost Tumblers and how you can get these high-quality composters at the lowest price.

    You will also learn about the only Lifetime Composter John recommends if you are a gambling man (or woman).

    After watching this episode, you will know why you should not purchase composters (and potentially other products) from the Lifetime Company that may require warranty support.

    If you need a more affordable composter get the 80-gallon lifetime from Costco. It's their best model but be weary of any customer support so save your receipt.

    Juicero + Produce Pack vs Juicer + Homegrown Produce - Which is Best ?
    Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens



    Published on May 8, 2017
    John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shows you how you can be more of a producer in your life instead of a consumer.

    In this episode, John will compare the internet connected Juicero juicer, a juicer that can only use plastic juice packs to make 8 ounces of juice using organic produce from the industrial agriculture industry to his backyard garden produce that he knows how it was grown, and harvests it just minutes before it is juiced in an Omega Slow Juicer VSJ843 that allows you to juice homegrown or any other produce.

    Finally, John will demonstrate how you can juice more of your own homegrown and local produce faster that the juicero can press out a plastic pouch filled with chopped produce.

    After watching this episode, hopefully you will see some of the absurdity of some modern technology and how we can empower ourselves to become more of a producer in our consumer-driven society to make the world a better place.

    Self Watering Raised Bed Garden + More from 2017 National Hardware Show
    Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens



    Published on May 15, 2017
    John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ takes you on a field trip to the 2017 National Hardware Show into the Lawn & Garden Pavillion to share with you the best new products that will allow you to grow more food at home. In this episode, special guest, Jake Mace, the Vegan Athlete will join John at this year's show!

    In this episode John will share with the following products that he feels are valuable to people who want to grow food at home:

    03:10 Tree Diaper - an olla style device for your trees that can catch and hold up to 30 gallons of rainwater and release the water when the soil is dry without any complicated irrigation system or timers. Also had similar solutions for potted plants and raised beds.

    https://www.treediaper.com/

    09:56 Soil Savvy - Best soil test kit that tests actual nutrients available in the soil your plants can absorb. Unlike other soil test kits which basically see what's in the soil. This soil test kit simulates the roots of your plants and will actually absorb the nutrients your plant would. This offers you better guidance as to what you can do to improve your soil and your vegetable gardening.
    https://unibestinc.com/industries/law...

    16:33 Vegepod - A Self-Watering Raised Bed Garden kit that waters your plants so you don't have to. It also keeps out pests from eating your organically grown vegetables. It is self-contained so it can be moved if you are renting your home. It can be elevated so you can garden without bending down or from a wheelchair. It is easy to assemble food grade polypropylene with UV stabilizers.
    https://vegepod.com/

    How Dates are Grown on a Permaculture No-Till Date Farm in the Desert
    Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens



    Published on May 21, 2017
    John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ goes on a field trip to Flying Disc Ranch, a Date farm who grows dates using no-till, permaculture, biodynamic and organic growing practices. You will see from pit to date on how this palm tree grows and produces delicious fruit.

    In this episode, you will learn how date palm trees are grown, and all the stages of date palm growth and some of the farming practices that must be done to ensure high-quality date fruit are being grown.

    First, John will compare standard agriculture practices that ruin the fertility of the soil, and share with you a better way: a no-till permaculture food forest in the middle of the desert that is growing a wide variety of tree crops as well as other crops.

    You will see the different stages of date palm tree growth and learn how long it takes a date palm to produce edible fruit.

    You will learn why bagging dates to protect them from the insects, pets and the weather is really important.

    You will discover some of the many practices that must be done on a regular basis to ensure your date palms get large and delicious fruit.

    You will learn why this farm does not use synthetic, chemical fertilizers and what they use instead to add nutrients and build their soil so their trees can produce some of the highest quality dates.

    You will discover how soil-conserving practices, such as no-till farming, permaculture food forest, keeping the ground covered and adding compost really help this food forest style farm thrive in the middle of 120-degree weather.

    Finally, John will interview the farmer, Robert Lower about this date farm he started in 1979. He will ask him the following questions:
    0:28:56 Start of interview with Robert Lawer
    0:29:25 What motivated you to start growing dates?
    0:30:25 Why don't you fumigate your dates like conventional date growers?
    0:32:04 What is the main pesticide that conventional dates are fumigated with?
    0:32:39 Why don't you use chemical/synthetic fertilizers on your farm?
    0:38:20 What do most date farms do with their palm fronds?
    0:38:45 Why do you do the no-till method of farming?
    0:41:25 What have you found by using rock dust on your farm?
    0:48:03 Why did you decided to interplant citrus/figs/pomegranates under your dates?
    0:50:37 What are the three things you would do differently on your farm based on what you have learned over 40 years?
    0:57:37 You Don't freeze your dates on the farm. Why is it important not to freeze your dates?
    1:03:34 What are some of your favorite old-fashion remedies for pest on the garden or farm?
    1:04:50 Any final comments or thoughts you would like to share with my viewers today?
    1:08:12 What is the best way to learn about your local and organic farmers?
    1:10:10 How can someone get ahold of the farm? What is your website?
    1:12:00 What is the best month to order dates?
