J. Dee: Hello, this solution sounds very good. Is the soil as important in non organic gardening?
Deb Cobern: No thanks. Ill stick to my organic gardening of past 40 years.
Don Barber: I enjoy your videos they are very informative. I have a question. I mixed the fertilizer and the micronutrient and for some reason it seems to be turning into liquid. Is that normal? Thanks, Don
Steve Sanders: So every year then you put done another preplant feed and then just till it in? Not just when you set the grow boxes up, correct?
Aviator: Your channel just lost credibility after this video.. synthetic fertilizer, really?
CindyC: The facebook group is closed. Could you post the Mittleider method of fertilizing. I went to the site and could not find it.
J DT: Thank you sooo much for your videos. You inspired me to try the Mittleider method. When prepping the soil boxes it says to add a 34-0-0 fertilizer. Can I use one similar such as Jonathon Green "Green-up Lawn fertilizer" it has 29-0-3? Thank you, Joe
carino tresvinos: Sorry but it seems you are selling mixes for Mittleider and I for I for one don't like promoting and marketing certain items.
Steve Sanders: o then you need 25 pounds of 16-16-16, 4 pounds of Magnesium or Epsom salts, a ten ounce packet of micronutrients and then you also add 1 pound of 10 percent calcium from your on screen notes?
mcapote3: what are your options if you cant find higher then 10-10-10 in your area? Ive tried hitting everywhere and its all 8-4-8 10-10-10 and 34-0-1 even walmart dont carry higher than 10-10-10 within 300 miles of me.
Ella: I bought a huge bag of epsom salts today (I have been using that on myself for years), and canister of 14 14 14 Osmacote 4 month extended feed fertilizer, and a bag of lime. Is that the recipe?
Back Country Preps: Growing your own food in my opinion is a great thing. I personally refuse to use any synthetic or man made fertilizer. Reason why #1, I have live stock and a literal mountain of wonderful organic compost. #2, I have a very large green house and orchard so buying mitlighter or any other product would be very cost prohibited. #3, I believe we should grow our food the way nature has shown us. Nature has perfected growing plants and trees over hundreds of millions of years. (Talk about being an expert) #4, if I wanted chemically fertilized food, I would just buy from the local grocery store. #5, in my opinion, the mitlighter method is like using plant steroids, ya you get fast and large fruit, but what effects does over stimulating your plants have in the long tearm? #6, what are all the high consintrations of different fertilizers actually doing to the bodies of those consuming these "super" fruits?
Much respect LDS, but I think the best way to grow has been shown to us by nature, not man. Just my opinion
calvinfbrown: hmm with all the run off into the lakes and rivers and algae that is growing because of the artificial fertilizers farmers are using, many are going back to composted cow manure in their fields.
bartendersunny1: Could you make a video about adding the weekly feed to your beds? I need color by number directions. I over fertilized last year and am dying to get this right! Your videos are very helpful I just have way more questions.
Michelle Jessop (Shell): PLEASE stop poisoning the earth.The greatest fertilizer from the beginning of time is COMPOST,how could our creator be wrong about this natural cycle? Respect the earth, it is a gift from God to us.KEEP THE NATURAL CYCLE OF LIFE GOING,PLEASE STOP POISONING EARTH, Mittleider Chem-gardeners.THANK YOU.
TeenaXenakis: Unless I'm mistaken, you say twice in the video that it takes four pounds of epsom salts. The Mittleider book says four OUNCES? Four ounces seems way too little. Clarification please?
Joseph Larsen: so what is your average cost per year for your whole garden taking all the weekly and yearly fertilizers?
Paul Ladendorf: This is more sustainable than organic? Are you serious? All I have to do is cut my grass, rake my leaves (which I do any way) and throw them and my kitchen scraps into a heap to make loads of compost. How can you possibly say petrochemical fertilizer is more sustainable?
"By definition, the manufacture of petrochemical fertilizers involves the unsustainable use of finite petroleum resources."
ELDK2008: This video is awesome! Thanks.....
