Did this video help you?

Home Defense Weapons: Thanks very much. I did get clumping. I'll get the lime to add and try that, I seem to only have access to 10-10-10 in my area of North central Wisconsin.

RealWorldReport: Looking for organic options, 13-13-13 is not organic. Anyone have an alternative to the petrochemicals?

alan30189: What is in the mico mix?

alan spurlock: i am totally getting this. hard to find though. looks like i will be buying online though. tough to find locally

jahad222: Epson Salt is available in most grocery stores in the pharmacy section, in the " Foot Care" isle. it has long been used as a soothing agent in warm water to soak "sore feet".. also in the bath and for other uses. UNLESS you are diabetic. Do not use in that manner.. It only cost abut $4.00 for 4 lb. bag.

jahad222: Yesterday I purchased two large bags of 'fine" sawdust at Tractor Supply and then 2 bags of play sand at Home Depot. I cannot determine how to mix it as you instructed for 75% sawdust and 25% sand. I think the sawdust is 5.? cubic whatever and the sand feels like it weighs about 80 lbs! I could not lift it alone. Can you advise? Thank you.

Pheonix Prep: In my area our store carry10-10-10- Will this work with the mettilieder magic? I really need to know so I can start my seddlings

WVoutdoorsman100: Where do I get the Mittleider powder? Can't seem to find it. Thanks

George Green: I Guess this Fertilizer is for United States Only, Because I have tried to get the 13-13-13 or 16-16-16 here in Canada. And I cant find anything, they have small bags and very expensive and not the right mixtures. Could any one give us any advice on getting the right fertilizer with a good price? please!

leiatyndall: You could also use a Gamma(II) Lid since you are opening your bucket on a regular basis...

Anthony Vasquez: Brother. I have been looking for weeks for 13-13-13. And I'm sure you are tired of answering this question. I searched Home Depot but they only have 10-10-10. (Hyponics) I believe. I looked at lowes, ace hardware, walmart, nurseries. I'm out of luck and soon out of time. My seedlings will be ready to transplant soon. Please help. 

ads92557: The only fertilizer that I can find that is that high in NPK are lawn fertilizers. Are they safe to use on vegetables? I was told by a person in a nursery that you shouldn't use lawn fertilizers for vegetables.

Umberto Dileo: Great videos. Are there any heavy metals in the mix and can you recommend an all purpose fertilizer that you might use. Any help would be appreciated.

Jennifer Gage: Hi, In Australia our fertilizer doesn't come with numbers like 13 13 13, only by brand name. Do you know anyone using Mittleider gardening method in Australia and what are they using for the fertilizer. If you can tell me the name of it, I would be most grateful

Deborah Annese: Is lesco 13-13-13 ok. Says for palms and tropical plants

John Nunya: If someone stole your nutrients and WW3 broke out tomorrow, could you grow? Is this system sustainable w/o all those chemicals? Pretty harsh I know but you call it sustainable, so is it? You were whole hearted in to the back to eden method for almost 2 years (almost long enough for the method to work) and now you're off to Mitt...what next?

robert lee: What do you do with your garden waste? compost and recycle it? or throw it away like trash.

John Nunya: Umm, there's a HUGE difference between perlite and lime...

Nantucketfog: Home Depot carries both 16-16-16 and 13-13-13. The former is intended for LAWN care. Do not use this product on your vegetable garden. The latter is intended for GARDEN care. It is safe for use on edible garden.

Tmac: Realizing different areas require more/less water, how do you determine the correct amount of watering?

YFZ520CC: I just found your site today and love It !

lantanaish: After going to Facebook, I could not find the "file section" you mention. Could you elaborate on exactly where these documents are for download.

Leesville Aquaponics Homestead: The proper way of organic farming was done by following animals... Put the cows/goats/horses/chickens on one pasture for a year move them to a new pasture in the early spring then plow an spread wood ash from the winter and then plant your crops... If you follow animals with planting you can prob get 2-3 years out of the soil but it's best to let it rest for a whole year to keep the soil built up... But people in town can't do this process but if SHTF they aint got to worry about growing food lol

Tsavah: Any food growing system that requires something to buy is a handicap for those wanting to know how to grow and eat when the worse of the bad times comes. Obviously if you are going to survive the worst of the bad times requires practicing under the conditions feared to be repeated. Anything else is play and expensive.

IAmGunzNoob: maggot u charge almost 2k for shipping alone

Pheonix Prep: In my area our store carry10-10-10- Will this work with the mettilieder magic? I really need to know so I can start my seddlings

ArizonaMMJ: Volcanic rocks?

Dove Money: I went to the site that says its is for the fertelizeer and it has books but I cant find the fertilizer for sale what am I doing wrong

civildisorder44: whats your 13-13-13 made of ? Is that a fossil fuel derivitive of some kind? Chemical fertilizer? How is this different from using something like Miracle Grow? Am I missing something???? I dont want my vegies sucking up chemicals Im going to eat!!!!

dynodave101: Can we use 19-19-19 for the weekly feed and just change the ratios a bit?

GeauxLSU: I currently dissolve fertilizer into the rain barrel system that waters my garden. Is this mix something that you can do this with or does it need to be applied dry?

LDSPrepper: The weekly feed is great for container soil mix. If you are using a 5 gallon bucket for your container use 1/2 oz. or one tablespoon of weekly feed. Weekly feed contains all 13 nutrients plants need. Azomite does not. I have 80 lbs of Azomite that I bought before I started using the weekly feed. Azomite will help if you don't have the weekly feed but it will only help some. It is not complete like the weekly feed.

hugoss14: Thank you for clarifying. Since I posted my comment I've made a couple trips around garden stores and I am looking for 13-13-13. Found 16-16-16 no problem but the price wasn't reasonable. I'm going to try out this feed with my spring garden. Maybe I'll finally get bees too!

LDSPrepper: Awesome. Thanks for the update.

TioNunez: I like your videos, but I don´t really get what´s sustainable about using several fertilizers produced somewhere on the other side of the planet? What if there won´t be any possibility to buy them? But I understand, that in a small scale it´s difficult to get enough organic matter. Organic gardening is definetely a looot more ecological. and sustainable....

SandcastleDreams: and pick axe. I tried raised beds and it helped but not enough. Moved to FL and had the same problem. The soil here didn't harden but it still wouldn't retain enough moisture. So I again went with raised beds. They still dried out. And it compacted and I wasn't walking on it. I went full scale back to Eden and I'm using manure and worm compost. Man am I getting results, in spite of the chickens. Water 1 or 2 a week in 80's temps. The plants are lush. I don't have to buy chemicals. This works!

auroraglacialis: Well - honestly I do not understand that logic of defining organic. After all, chemical pesticides and insecticides are also just chemical and thus made from elements of nature. Its all natural and thus organic? No - the division is a different one and not one based on geochemistry (by the way I actually am a chemical geologist ;) ). To call something "organic" means that it takes a more holistic approach and usually it means that it does not require the importantion of many resources to a farm

mikemorrison281: If you watched his other videos, he purchased the sawdust and sand from the plants themselves, not from big lot stores. Something always comes from something else. How much pasture would you have to seed, raise, and harvest to feed just one cow for 5 years and how much space would that require? You can store 5 years of this feed in the space that a riding lawn mower takes in a shed...and it doesn't "eat" anything or need a vet or require a few acres of land. If you don't like it, don't do it.

genesis1verse1: Paul says that God said man would have to live by the sweat of his brow and then MAN began to till the ground. God didn't tell him to till it, but rather prophetically told him he would sweat and it would produce thorns. This is a perfect example of labor intensive costly man made minutia driven system that takes all the enjoyment out of sustainable gardening for people. Paul often says, "we gotta get it", I guess maybe you didn't.

LDSPrepper: Home depot carries "Hyponex 40 lb. All-Purpose Fertilizer" Model # 574910, Store SKU # 574910. Look up this sku for your local store or give it to the store attendants. They'll be able to direct you to it. If they don't have it on hand they can have it shipped to the store so you can pick it up.

John Smith: Don't think about how you will immediately survive a SHTF event. Instead, think about how your children will survive 20+ years later after a complete collapse. What are you teaching them about gardening and being stewards of the land?

mtnmanrab: He also said that if you needed to add fertilizer at first until your soil was built up by the decomposing chips. Do it. There's alway transition to restoring the original fertility and life in the soil. The way you're promoting here is not going to restore the life and fertility of the soil. The heavy mulch is going to break down and you can always and should always keep adding to the soil. The way you are promoting is very artificial

LDSPrepper: What are you building, bucket garden, grow box/raised bed, soil bed/in-the-ground garden?

jaycee157: Again I am listening to your video for the first time. I do not live in the USA to get the magic fertilzer powder. So how can I make the Mittleider garden mix, or can I just use some epsom salts and water?

Tammy Travis: I recently found triple 19, and triple 16. I thought i remembered reading triple 18 was preferred. So i purchased triple 19. did i make a mistake? Should I purchase triple 16 next time?

LDSPrepper: You use 1/2 oz. weekly feed per linear foot for a 18" wide bed/box. Since you have a 4' bed you basically have two 18" beds together. So for six beds you will need 48 oz or 3 lbs. each week you feed. For 10 feedings you would use 30 lbs of fertilizer. I have 30 lbs in one 5 gallon bucket. As I mentioned in the video that is enough for the typical family garden. From your description that is what you have. I have a larger garden so I need more fertilizer.

auroraglacialis: Well sawdust has to come from cutting trees and sand also has to be trucked in - so ... well. But that was not so much the point. The point was that I feel that sawdust and sand are more or less just sponges, so essentially this method is a bit like hydroponics as the plants get all their nutrients basically from the fertilizer that is added. If the fertilizer stops, they cannot grow, like indoor potted plants. So if your storage of fertilizer runs out, this method stops. So its not sustainable?

TheKingdomWorks: Just to level it out though I think you are an awesome gardener and that people get too hung up on methods. You found what worked for you in your time and place. I can't fault that and no one should

TheKingdomWorks: When I read Gen. 3, WORK that came with the FALL was a RESULT of the fall. Man had to till because of sin's effect on the world and the earth no longer recognized his dominion. The redemption of Christ brings back abundance as we are restored in the knowledge of dominion through Christ. BTE works, but it takes time. It takes time to let the covering compost. Paul has chickens for a sustained source of fertilizer(which nature has) and suggests fertilizer at the start til u see u don't need it.

1mensamom: Although his method works for him, I use composted cow manure in my garden before planting then make a compost "tea" from cow patties (from my neighbor's cow pasture). Take a 5 gallon bucket, add 2-3 dried up patties, fill the bucket with water and let stand for a few days. Use this tea to water your veggies and stand back! Once you've depleted the water, you can keep refilling the bucket until the tea begins to look weak. Then you add more patties and start over. And it's free!
