5

00:00:25,969 --> 00:00:28,440

I'm out with the boys in the garden all




6

00:00:28,640 --> 00:00:30,570

the boys little buddies behind you here




7

00:00:30,769 --> 00:00:33,719

we're gonna plant five raspberry plants




8

00:00:33,920 --> 00:00:36,750

I was out here prepping this area to put




9

00:00:36,950 --> 00:00:38,659

in the raspberries digging up the soil




10

00:00:38,859 --> 00:00:41,909

adding a bunch of this partially




11

00:00:42,109 --> 00:00:44,669

composted manure and I found this cool




12

00:00:44,869 --> 00:00:47,369

little elderberry plant here which I




13

00:00:47,570 --> 00:00:50,070

will keep and that came from actually




14

00:00:50,270 --> 00:00:51,839

just burying some chunks of elderberry




15

00:00:52,039 --> 00:00:54,029

root that I dug up from the world these




16

00:00:54,229 --> 00:00:57,769

raspberries came from the Indiana




17

00:00:57,969 --> 00:01:01,559

Berrien plant company these are a




18

00:01:01,759 --> 00:01:05,399

variety called Nantahala and if you're




19

00:01:05,599 --> 00:01:07,049

from around here you'll recognize the




20

00:01:07,250 --> 00:01:09,030

name immediately this variety was




21

00:01:09,230 --> 00:01:15,090

developed by NC State and I bought it




22

00:01:15,290 --> 00:01:17,700

because supposed to taste good and do




23

00:01:17,900 --> 00:01:20,590

well around here




24

00:01:26,019 --> 00:01:30,619

it's okay dude all right that's that




25

00:01:30,819 --> 00:01:35,628

look at these silly cows hey lady




26

00:01:35,828 --> 00:01:43,738

any babies it's been pretty rainy the




27

00:01:43,938 --> 00:01:45,628

past two days which has been nice for




28

00:01:45,828 --> 00:01:48,439

the garden and pasture and everything




29

00:01:48,640 --> 00:01:51,890

the cow has been out in the rain we




30

00:01:52,090 --> 00:01:53,878

would pretty much try to keep her




31

00:01:54,078 --> 00:01:57,599

outside and have generally been happier




32

00:01:57,799 --> 00:02:00,329

overall when we kept the cow that we had




33

00:02:00,530 --> 00:02:03,418

out of the barn she will stay so much




34

00:02:03,618 --> 00:02:07,918

cleaner out here then she will in the




35

00:02:08,118 --> 00:02:08,399

barn




36

00:02:08,598 --> 00:02:13,710

and not only will she stay cleaner which




37

00:02:13,909 --> 00:02:17,099

makes milking cleaning easier keeps your




38

00:02:17,299 --> 00:02:20,939

milk cleaner the barn stays a lot




39

00:02:21,139 --> 00:02:22,710

cleaner too so everything stays cleaner




40

00:02:22,909 --> 00:02:24,599

if she just stays out and and the rain




41

00:02:24,799 --> 00:02:26,910

doesn't hurt her you know if it's storm




42

00:02:27,110 --> 00:02:28,050

and real bad we might let her in the




43

00:02:28,250 --> 00:02:31,819

barn but if I turn my gaze over this way




44

00:02:32,019 --> 00:02:34,140

there's an apple tree that's doing great




45

00:02:34,340 --> 00:02:37,680

but right in here there are two ducks




46

00:02:37,879 --> 00:02:40,680

sitting on duck eggs




47

00:02:40,879 --> 00:02:44,098

[Music]




48

00:02:47,879 --> 00:02:51,049

[Music]




49

00:02:54,169 --> 00:02:57,800

our raspberries are in the ground one




50

00:02:58,000 --> 00:03:01,950

two three four five and then between




51

00:03:02,150 --> 00:03:04,830

this post and that corner up there we'll




52

00:03:05,030 --> 00:03:07,618

put in 13 more plants and I think it's




53

00:03:07,818 --> 00:03:10,140

five different varieties the potatoes




54

00:03:10,340 --> 00:03:11,759

are doing awesome I've started just




55

00:03:11,959 --> 00:03:13,740

mulching them with grass that I cut by




56

00:03:13,939 --> 00:03:15,170

hand from around the edge of the garden




57

00:03:15,370 --> 00:03:18,890

this lettuce looks awesome but it needs




58

00:03:19,090 --> 00:03:20,640

thinning but it's just growing




59

00:03:20,840 --> 00:03:23,550

beautifully this is joyful garden she




60

00:03:23,750 --> 00:03:26,100

needs to do some work on it these peas




61

00:03:26,300 --> 00:03:28,850

along the fence are looking really puny




62

00:03:29,050 --> 00:03:31,950

so last night I cut the grass all along




63

00:03:32,150 --> 00:03:34,259

the fence to try to give him a little




64

00:03:34,459 --> 00:03:37,020

more sunlight and then I fertilized them




65

00:03:37,219 --> 00:03:40,200

this morning with some fish fertilizer




66

00:03:40,400 --> 00:03:42,780

to try to just get them to pop the




67

00:03:42,979 --> 00:03:45,060

asparagus is doing awesome and there's




68

00:03:45,259 --> 00:03:46,950

just a nice thick steak look at this




69

00:03:47,150 --> 00:03:49,770

giant here and then under the feet of




70

00:03:49,969 --> 00:03:53,550

the asparagus there are thousands of




71

00:03:53,750 --> 00:03:57,780

little asparagus plants here all along




72

00:03:57,979 --> 00:04:00,870

so if we let it this whole area here and




73

00:04:01,069 --> 00:04:01,530

here




74

00:04:01,729 --> 00:04:04,289

will turn into a big giant asparagus bed




75

00:04:04,489 --> 00:04:06,840

the rhubarb looks really great and




76

00:04:07,039 --> 00:04:09,450

there's comfrey coming up down here in




77

00:04:09,650 --> 00:04:12,960

the path the strawberry bed looks really




78

00:04:13,159 --> 00:04:15,719

really good and here are onions which




79

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,900

this was my last project is weeding and




80

00:04:19,100 --> 00:04:21,020

mulching this is gonna be my next one




81

00:04:21,220 --> 00:04:23,189

weeding the onions probably mulching




82

00:04:23,389 --> 00:04:25,439

them in some way and here's Chinese




83

00:04:25,639 --> 00:04:28,680

chives which are pretty tasty the garlic




84

00:04:28,879 --> 00:04:33,000

85

00:04:33,199 --> 00:04:38,670

86

00:04:38,870 --> 00:04:43,949

87

00:04:44,149 --> 00:04:45,689

88

00:04:45,889 --> 00:04:47,278

89

00:04:47,478 --> 00:04:49,939

off that's from children eating them and




90

00:04:50,139 --> 00:04:52,920

104

00:05:34,529 --> 00:05:37,030

by caterpillars at least I saw a little




105

00:05:37,230 --> 00:05:42,370

slug damage on one of them look at this




106

00:05:42,569 --> 00:05:46,150

awesome and then you're getting they're




108

00:05:48,180 --> 00:05:50,079

big and they're strong really pretty




109

00:05:50,279 --> 00:05:53,410

little plants there this portion of the




110

00:05:53,610 --> 00:05:55,120

garden behind me is almost completely




111

00:05:55,319 --> 00:05:56,680

planted there's a little open real




112

00:05:56,879 --> 00:05:59,079

estate here down at the end there and




113

00:05:59,279 --> 00:06:01,840

then in the ends of those beds but our




114

00:06:02,040 --> 00:06:04,660

early gardens almost totally in next




115

00:06:04,860 --> 00:06:08,860

comes this mess up here this part of the




116

00:06:09,060 --> 00:06:11,770

garden as far as the soil goes is pretty




117

00:06:11,970 --> 00:06:13,449

significantly worse than what's behind




118

00:06:13,649 --> 00:06:16,540

me down here we've put a ton actually




119

00:06:16,740 --> 00:06:19,139

multiple tons honestly literally of




120

00:06:19,339 --> 00:06:23,050

organic manure compost into this lower




121

00:06:23,250 --> 00:06:25,210

portion and just not as much into the




122

00:06:25,410 --> 00:06:27,639

upper portion so we're gonna row to till




123

00:06:27,839 --> 00:06:30,069

this upper portion so that's what's next




124

00:06:30,269 --> 00:06:31,240

in the garden and that's pretty much




125

00:06:31,439 --> 00:06:33,189

wraps up our garden tour let's go see




126

00:06:33,389 --> 00:06:34,730

[Music]




128

00:06:38,250 --> 00:06:41,088

so far this is the most vigorous of all




129

00:06:41,288 --> 00:06:44,480

the apple trees and it's a Liberty all




130

00:06:44,680 --> 00:06:46,759

of these trees are putting on a good




131

00:06:46,959 --> 00:06:52,910

amount of new growth this is a straight




132

00:06:53,110 --> 00:06:56,990

start break star and we're gonna have to




133

00:06:57,189 --> 00:06:59,199

pick these off here but this thing has




134

00:06:59,399 --> 00:07:02,240

probably twenty or thirty little tiny




135

00:07:02,439 --> 00:07:05,778

136

00:07:05,978 --> 00:07:10,550

138

00:07:16,060 --> 00:07:18,139

a few stray chickens but we'll let the




139

00:07:18,339 --> 00:07:21,538
