rmstreeter: Greeting s LDSPrepper. How much of the weekly feed fertilizer do you apply to a 3 gallon container?
ron prince: Thanks for the video, it surprises me so many people are negative about this method. People say there is soil all around you, but it's not good growing soil. The best soil is in the river deltas where it has been deposited for ever, but that is where we put city's. From a prepared persons point of view 5 or 10 years worth of food for my family while I make good organic soil and learn how to maintain it is a good idea. Again thanks for sharing this video and putting up with the experts that have never done anything.
Vince McK: Enjoy your videos! I want to give this method a try and I went to order the Mittleider Magic MIx on the site you linked to for Mittleider they ask 13.95 plus shipping on their site but don't show a quantity in ounces or how many pouches for the price. Would you tell me how many ounces do you get for $13.95? And also have you ordered from other suppliers i.e. True Leaf Market and is it the mix they offer true to the original recipe. Thanks!
Jason Adams: Hey LDS Prepper! How long does the Mittleider Magic Micro Mix stay nutrient potent - I was wondering shelf life for prepping purposes. Thanks ! Also do you know the shelf life of the things you mix with it? Would like to create a rotation but need to know whether i can create a 2, 10 or 20 year rotation. Thanks (The longer the better hence the questions) Jason (LDS)
Brian Gross: Do you know the meaning of sustainable? Sustainable means able to be maintained at a certain rate or level. Where does your Mittleider Natural Mineral Fertilize come from? How do you get it? What if they went out of business? Manure comes from animals daily and they do not go out of business. You have a never ending supply of compost. You do not need to store a years supply of compost, you just grow it.
Do an experiment. Try compost on just one bed or one plant for that matter. Then show us the difference Mittleider Natural Mineral Fertilizer makes. The proof is in the pudding.
Terry Manes: You lost me with "It's more sustainable than organic gardening" You are so dumb.
Butler Mill: Why do you quote using the old English? Don't you find it odd that the Book of momon is in King James English when that was NOT the common language of Joseph Smith. Hmmm something don't add up.
Scott Mills: do you know the math on figuring out how much fertilizer to apply to the boxes? I have 3x6 boxes
MetaView7: you should not pre-mix the fertilizers; because the granulates are of different size and density, the small and heavy particules will gravitate to the bottom, making the mix shifted outside of the originally intended proportion.
Josip: I'm sorry this is not "sustainable", it's just easier for you! It is actually bad for the environment! There is so much soil all around you, but you choose to depend on something that is manufactured! This is one of the reasons why we have climate change!
Dave Crookham: Have you got any special tomato feed cheers
Josh S: Don't overlook what David says at around minute 5 in regards to adding Perlite (now lime) to the mix. My first batch without that stuff is wet as can be and definitely clumps up a lot. I'll now follow the instrux as per what he says here and hopefully it'll stay dry.
AndrewGames: hey david....my name is andy,,, there is possible to mix sawdust and sand to make this in buckets....
KEN McRAE: THANKS FOR THE QUICK RESPONSE AND EXECELLENT ANALYSIS
KEN McRAE: YOU MENTIONED 1/2 OZ OF WEEKLY FEED PER FOOT. MY FOUR FOOT BED IS SIXTEEN FEET LONG. DOES THIS MEAN I USE 8 OZ OR 32 OZ?
Rick Shadrick: i grow in 55 gal plastic barrels cut in half. how much ferilizer would you put in it. i have 50 of these. thank you.
Joe Stubbernubbensteingenson: How much lime do I use? 10% of what?
AZBlueVeg: How is the Mittleider method "sustainable" when you promote the use of chemical-based fertilizers that are created by the petroleum industry? Most of what you show in this video is a byproduct of petroleum production. You mention that the minerals are sustainable, but not the rest. Organic gardening principles are 100% sustainable. If you are planning for the zombie apocalypse, well I'm sure you'll still be able to hop on over to the local Walmart to buy your fertilizers ROTFL! ;-)
Lana Richardson: David, can you clarify what you mean about adding 10% lime instead of perlite. Is the "10%" the concentration of the lime? Or is the 10% the amount of weight you add, i.e.) you add 2.5lbs of lime to 25lbs of weekly fertilizer mix? Thanks for the info.
netcomptech: I've watched many of your videos on solar and am starting on the gardening videos. You do a very good job at creating the videos. In the video above you referred to this as sustainable, but how can that be if you must purchase a secret mix of stuff, the 'Mittleider Magic MIcro MIx? If you don't know what is in the mix then you can't make it yourself to know if it is actually something which can be repeated without a commercial source.
