littleold sawmill: Hi John. I live in Fort Myers Fl, I have experimented with growing things
here which people say cannot grow here in the summer. I am kinda a newbe
at gardening but I do my homework and then experiment and dial in on making
it work. I got two aquaponics systems (45 and 60 plants) a Kratkey system
32 plants and one 36 x 4 and two 2 x 12 raised beds. I got one 36 x4 and a
12 x6 raised bed in the works and also a huge expansion to the aquaponics
system. I live in a tiny douplex so space is at a premium- I am also
limited to what and where I can grow stuff because of the drain field in
the front yard and limitation by my landlord.
ThunderKats LightningBolts: That sweet potato leaf is good for anemic it's a nutritious veggie.
Teresa Bee: The "serasee" looks like a plant that grows here in FL called the wild
balsam apple which has been said to be poisonous.
prami knowles: the last yellow fruit with red seed is use for flu! its very good! cut
them vines about medium size full of a saucepan was them good n boil them
for 45 - 1hr! n drink it when it warm not hot! drink it every morning in
Jose Luis: the last fruit growing on the fence we called cun-de-amor
Zach Tele: I collected a bunch of pinnaple seeds from a store bought one here in Fl.
I'm going try to plant them out and use them in landscaping. Planted the
top too. I have loads of cranberry hibiscus that I already have, those are
great for landscaping and salads/smoothies.
MarshmallowVogt: I think if you dropped a pencil on the ground in Florida and left it alone
it old tu
Mick Tree: what was the ‘’new plant ‘’ ,orange pedals and red seeds, called?
budokaii69: Thanks for the video John love that tropical weather in FL.
Jefferdaughter: Some varieties of passion flower grow as far north as Virginia, Kentucky,
etc, and produce edible fruit. They grow wild there, and are sometimes
known as 'maypop'.
mizzpoetrics: I didn't see any mangos! My favorite friut! Waaaah, where's the mangos???
mizzpoetrics: Love this video John! My favs on here are the passion fruit, & the cerasse
fruit! I haven't had any in a long time. I'm not sure how they'll fare in
the cold weather.
Laurel Purdy: Luke, I live in Ft. Myers, too.. how are your trees doing? Wanna trade
seeds and cuttings?
Marta Laura Zayas: can you put some information about grafting?
Toni B: Thank John I really enjoy watching ur videos they always help me... I have
been growing my garden since September 2012. & i have learned so many of ur
videos. Thank u so much for taking the time to teach some of us average
growers to be better growers...
Laurel Purdy: Cerasse
So Cal: John,when will you be doing a lecture or something like that in Southern
Calif.? I know Florida is warmer but it's not too bad here in south callie
Uriel1816: I have never seen Okinawan spinach. A good looking and eating plant.
LarkaStark: how do you spell sarasee?
TropicBob1: Also want to add that Carambolas make fantastic juice (juice extractor)- no
need to add anything.
wheeliegrl: Moringa ISNT bitter if u harvest and saute when young. They taste like
spinach, and are one of THE best things u can eat. After moringa leaves,
you can thorw ALL ur spinach in the garbage.
pgeeks808: Hi John, I live on Oahu...I did since watch your video on you growing it
hydroponically from a cutting from Hawaii. Would appreciate if you know
where I can get it! Btw, I subscribe to all 3 of your channels and
especially like your excursions! Hope you'll come to Hawaii and do some
Laurel Purdy: Where are you? I'm in Ft. Myers! I'd long to trade seeds and cuttings!
Delano Small: Hello John, thanks for all your support on everything you post. I am now
starting my garden and would love to put as much fruits and vegetables in
it as I could possibly get. I have Moringa Oleifera so far. I heard you
mentioned Kutuk? I'm not sure how it's spelled but I would love to know
more about it. I am in The Bahamas which has a climate like Florida. Where
can I find it and how do you spell it?
Titi Starr: apart from fruit try the papaya green or ripe and mangoes green(depends on
the variety of mango) or ripe in salads with dressings.Carambola can also
be eaten green or ripe and so can suriname cherries
n1chev0: Momordica charantia is the scientific name; it is listed as toxic in a
number of places with varying parts of the plant specified.
Titi Starr: I think in South Florida you can grow just about anything wit the exeption
of certain berries like bleubaerries and cranberrie that like cooler
climates and apples,pears,cheeries
MisterNickOtine: the sweet potato is I. batatas, a different species than the LSA containing
morning glory I. tricolor or I. violacea. they are close relatives but i
doubt it has any LSA.
Endrikh Darkvine CXVI: they are? :o maybe they got lsa then :p
Spacekat Tommy: Be sure to link your friends in the description in the future vids :D
PinkShirtz: Lol you guys look so sneaky, doing people good by putting greens in their
food! Lol, it's a nice change from banks and corporations constantly being
sneaky in the bad sense and taking people for granted!
NaomiPhoenix: I just bought some jungle peanuts on ebay
pestanah: @nephildevil hmm....i wonder which greens do have any forms of alkaloids at
Luke L: Thanks you Rene and John! I am turning my mom lot into edible jungle here
in S FL. I visted ECHO (as seen in a previous video) today and picked up a
Katuk plant. Ran into a guy who lived in Hawaii and said it is widely grown
there. also picked up moringa tree seeds and red malabar spinach which
grows weell here! Echo has seminole pumpkin seeds also.
BackyardPhenomena: Cerasee is poisonous once its fruit turns yellow.
phantomcreamer: I've never tried the jamaican passiflora, but I am growing passiflora
edulis. What are the differences in taste between the jamaican
passionflower versus passiflora edulis?
Titi Starr: I love it because trees produce oxygen and also are habitat for wildlife
such as birds and then they are actually edible.
Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens: I first learned of katook in Hawaii. I know it is being grown on Big Island
and On Maui. What island are you on?
Laurel Purdy: How are they doing? And where did you ge them?
TropicBob1: Great video John and Rene. I have some some Jungle Peanut seed and live in
south Florida. Can they grow in 1/2 shade? Okinawa spinach is one of my
favorites-steam it with rice (near the end) and comes out great. What about
Taro (especially for chips) and Belembe? They grow fast here. I'm not sure
how to prepare them. Interesting how you propagate Katuk- I will try that.
My papaya is loaded with fruit but they are 20' high.
Titi Starr: edible hibiscus? is it a certain variety?
pgeeks808: Thanks John, I am familiar with Frankie's and have bought plants from him
before. I'll give him a call! When you come to Hawaii do you give talks or
demonstrations? Because of you my lawn is slowly transforming into a
produce aisle! Great information....keep on educating us!
LarkaStark: John, this is the first video of yours that I watched a year ago. I am
amazed, rewatching this, how now, I am growing everything in this video! I
was brand new last year and have come incredibly far. I now have 5
greenhouses, an indoor/outdoor greenhouse upstairs - with a deck - its
patio door is always open - greenhouse framed - my tropicals are there.
Hottub heats one, and Ipool heats the other - rest are cold crops and 1
covered outdoor grow area. Whew! WHAT A YEAR IT HAS BEEN! Thank you
Endrikh Darkvine CXVI: @pestanah ah thx didn't know that :) now i wonder why it doesnt have LSA
and etc, the alkaloids morning glories have :D
blackboy424: go go FLA! man do we have tons of bugs I saw them crawling on you guys lol
EatRawGreens: Thxs so much for the vid, John! Can't wait to have my own yard.. EatWell,
Be Well !! :-)
jamie clarke: thank you rene and john
norxcontacts: John, you have such a great speaking voice.
