    Usually if you’re using all the techniques that John and Josh and the other people that John interviews in your garden and pick your fruits and vegetables from your garden and eat them or juice them right away and you will get the highest nutrients that are possible in your situation at the time.

    Hay folks, it is the best for these people.
    After a this couple worked on a book together they may have find out who the other person’s personality is, this is a very good reality. Many couples do not know each other and later nightmare city! Who knows they may be friends and have a fine communication for the next 50 years. So chill with the disappointment statements, everyone could use support in their decisions regarding future spouse.

    I took you advice John when I planted garlic last July, I just harvested my first crop of garlic just now. You had suggested to plant in several different areas and different time periods. Last year I had harvested 30 garlic’s, they were eaten in 30 days!
    This year’s harvest will be 90 hopefully never enough, though. The tree collards have spouted, the Malbar spinach, and longevity spinach, many other organic vegetables.
    Thanks for your encouragement and advice,
    Cheers!

    good video! I think you have potential to be a HUGE YouTuber and make so much money that this becomes your permanent job! It's just My spouse and i realized that your channel really isn't growing very fast, which is holding you again! If your videos acquired some more views, they'd do so much better in the YouTube algorithm. My MAIN channel has been receiving ton of success because I bought a few dollar guide on the way to get an unlimited amount of views on any video. Literally, I just started and one of my videos already has almost 7, 000 views and will have 20, 000 VIEWS by the end of the week, which is giving me a MASSIVE boost in the YouTube search and algorithm because my subscriber count goes up 60 subscribers every day now. I understand it sounds like an ad lol but it could really blow up your channel. I can't post links in comments, so you'll have to find the link to the guide in the MAIN channel banner. My main channel is featured on this channel right now that I'm using to comment. The link will be in the bottom right corner of the main channel banner. Hope this helps ya out a little down the road: )

    it helps get your channel rolling so give it a look 🙂

    Thanks for another great video! You mentioned you had been doing a lot of research on best juicers and kitchen appliances etc. I have watched your videos to guide myself when I plan to make a purchase! So thank you 🙏 you also said what’s next ? I want to make a suggestion to make a video on best water filters, distillers etc. I have been looking into it now bc I don’t want to continue buying bottled water! But what is the best choice for water in 2018?? Can you pls share your opinion based on your research and experience? Would love that 🙏🙏

    Anything is possible — I had a chat with my landlord a few years ago about having a garden spot, after he removed a large shrub. He made a raise bed garden for me and now I can grow vegetables at home. Not a ton of space but I am thrilled to have it. I also have a community garden plot that I grow veggies. I also buy veggies from the Hutterites. Fruit I have to get a store.

    JOHN….A great book for you & viewers…'THE DIRT CURE' by Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein, MD. She explains how having actual contact with soil microbes, by growing at least some of our own food, is essential for good health. Eye opening research. She is a pediatric neurologist and urban gardener. Maybe do an interview with her & film a tour her gardens would be cool? Great content as always. Thanks!

    How did you get your YouTube channel going? Like did you just keep creating content until some people listened?

    Also I have dealt with a lot of people feeling rsw food took over their life in a negative aspect, and I really believe so much of it has to do with where you get your produce. I left Ecuador because the pesticide use was so insanely intense but I never thought about the fact that in the states nothing I eat is actually fresh. It's sad that in florida local organic fruit is actually pretty hard to come by.. I have to remember that too, I wonder why I ate fruit juice and cucumbers all organic but dont feel good
    Cuz I bought it at the store.

    Also… in terms of people not wanting raw food to take over their lives. Al the tips you gave probably will make them feel like it took over their life at first BUT when you have your health and you feel amazing you get hooked and then your "life" you feel like you lost doesnt feel all that important anymore.

    Okay moving on.
