ACTIVE JELLY BUSH HONEY 250G JAR $39 /Lismore NSW 2480 Australia

Marketplaceaffordablewholefoods posted the article • 0 comments • 26 views • 2019-07-01 15:24 • came from similar tags

 
 
 
 

 
 
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Our active Jelly Bush honey has a high activity rating of 20+ and a MGO rating of 800+.

Active Jelly Bush honey has the same health promoting properties as New Zealand’s Manuka honey and is often referred to as Australia’s Manuka. Active Jelly Bush honey is the ideal compliment to your first aid kit or medicine cabinet as it is widely recognised for its many healing properties and is considered to be one of the best natural medicines.

Health benefits of Jelly bush honey

Jelly Bush honey is a potent wound healer, dramatically accelerating healing time and can greatly reduce the risk of infection and scarring.  It works as a natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial when applied topically to a wound as well as internally for many conditions such as ulcers and throat infections.  It is also very safe to use directly on burns, grazes and broken skin.
 
 
 ABOUT US:
 

 
WE LOVE WHOLEFOODS! Before Denise (the fantastic cook) and I (the fantastic eater), opened our store in Lismore, NSW, fresh affordable wholefoods were just not available to everyone. We had to change this. Taking a big step in 2008 we borrowed the money for our first store against the only thing we could, a heavily forested piece of land with a small shed in the beautiful Northern Rivers, our family home. A very scary thing to do but love will make you do almost anything. So our love for people and delicious wholesome food took over.[The Shed]The shed that started it all

We opened our first store in Lismore, the original bulk foods store in NSW, based completely on our life long philosophy of doing everything in a fair and ethical way. Treating the environment, the land, the farmers, the food as well as our staff, customers, friends, family and each other with sincere respect and generosity whilst having fun and laughter along the way is most important to us. We are them and they are us.

Trust is what has sustained us, and it is from this place that we strive to provide all our customers with the best quality wholefoods at the most affordable prices. Whether you are shopping with us in our Lismore store, the more recently opened Coffs Harbour store (2014) or online you can trust that your fresh food is handled with the utmost care, and friendly professional service.

ACTIVATED ALMONDS (INSECTICIDE FREE) 51.9$/kg

Marketplaceaffordablewholefoods posted the article • 0 comments • 23 views • 2019-07-01 15:13 • came from similar tags

 
 
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
 
 
 
Using a long soak and slow dehydration method our activated almonds are locally made in Woodburn NSW using sustainably grown, insecticide free, Australian almonds from Belehris Estates in South Australia.

Activating almonds refers to soaking/sprouting raw almonds in salted, filtered water for 12 hours to begin the process of germination, encouraging an almonds digestive enzymes to be activated…ultimately awakening their life force.

These enzymes break down phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors therefore making almonds easier to digest and the nutrients more readily available for our bodies to absorb. Super yummy too!

Honeybee Wrap is a reusable beeswax wrap, an eco friendly alternative to plastic wrap and a fantastic food preserver.

Honeybee Wrap is a reusable beeswax wrap, an eco friendly alternative to plastic wrap and a fantastic food preserver. By using a reusable beeswax wrap you are helping to reduce the 8 million tons of plastic that enters our oceans each year!

Hello im sherrie owner and creator of Honeybee wrap.

HoneyBee Wrap originated in my family kitchen 5 years ago in the Northern Rivers near beautiful Byron Bay. Having a big family, with 5 children I was always looking for greener alternative to preserve our food fresh without the use of plastic. That is until I started making and using Honeybee wrap.

To this day you can still find our little studio in Mullumbimby! Our reusable wraps are  100% Australian made and manufactured. 

In fact, our commitment to sustainability doesn't only stop at making an environmentally friendly alternative product but we give back to our community by employing locals and buying locally sourced ingredients. We also give away our by product fabric waste which is recycled. And each year we help a number of schools and community projects by fundraising their green activities. If you have a green idea we would love to hear from you!

WHAT'S IN OUR WRAP?

Our reusable food wrap are made with 100% organic cotton, natural Australian beeswax, organic coconut oil, tree resin and Australian jojoba oil. 

One of the reason why our beeswax wrap are of the highest quality on the market is because we only use the best ingredients. Starting with 100% certified organic cotton (GOTS certified) with low impact dyes. This means that the cotton is grown without the use of chemical and pesticide.

Did you know that cotton is the most widely grown crops in the world, growing conventional cotton is also one of the most chemical-­intensive?

Our reusable beeswax wraps are actually so green that when you are finished with them you can put them in your worm farm or compost bin!

ABOUT BEESWAX

A Permaculture internship on Christmas Island’s Hidden Garden Sustainable Farm is a one-of-a-kind experience. Much more than a Permaculture farm, Hidden Garden offers a unique opportunity to be part of a ground breaking project that is literally breathing the life back into the land – degraded and depleted after decades of mining. Set against the back-drop of one of the world’s most diverse ecologies, Christmas Island is surrounded by abundant marine life, unique eco-systems and pristine oceans.

Our six week practical Permaculture internships are for anyone interested in living a more sustainable self-reliant and resilient lifestyle as a productive citizen of our one and only planet. Study the principles of Permaculture and the art of more sustainable living with our qualified and passionate Hidden Garden team working together to realise the common goal of quality local food production, regardless of where you live. To promote and grow organic foods that are not only better for you but ‘cheaper’ because there is more food at a lesser environmental cost. Less food miles, less food storage and packaging, less toxic chemicals, less water, and less distribution cost! We’re a mix of part science, part technology and part heritage farming. We grow low input high yielding organic produce working alongside nature. We make use of local waste streams turning them into resources, aided by science and technology, to accelerate naturally occurring processes.

Purely organic and based on natural biological farming techniques – we compost community waste bringing land back to life

Othershidden garden posted the article • 0 comments • 20 views • 2019-06-29 14:51 • came from similar tags

 

 
 
 Purely organic and based on natural biological farming techniques – we compost community waste bringing land back to life…we can farm practically anywhere!

Our farms are designed to be completely self-sustaining. We build fertility by converting community waste into the very best compost. Bio-Vital™ compost was developed by co-founder, Paul Taylor over four decades of research and application on degraded systems all over the world. Our Bio-VitalTM compost is used to remediate degraded soil and enhance conditions for growing fresh organic produce. This specialist aerobic thermal compost is used to enhance raised growing beds and aquaponic systems.

Depending on local conditions and requirements our modular farming system can include market gardens with raised garden beds, roofed greenhouses, annual row cropping and Permaculture forests. The gardens self-propagate providing on-going seed supply.

Chickens, geese, ducks, and guinea fowl are an essential part of the Hidden Garden design. They help control insects and weeds control and provide eggs and fertiliser. Hidden Garden Sustainable Farms favours Chicken Caravan systems which allows us to move the chickens around, giving them an open area to forage.

The ultimate vision for our farms is that they will be run off the grid, with all electricity and water coming from the site itself. All roofed structures will capture and store water, and if needed other methods for storing water in-ground will also be used. Power from solar and wind generation will be introduced on appropriate sites to supply the farm with its energy needs.

Description

This rust eraser removes rust from cast iron and steel. It is a semi-flexible rubber sanding block with 120 grit impregnated uniformly in the block. We find it very useful for removing superficial rust from our scythe blades on the odd occasion we forget to give them a light oiling after use . The block is a comfortable size to hold in your hand, being 80 mm x 50 mm x 20 mm. Unlike other sanding blocks, it retains its abrasive qualities until the block has been completely worn away – just like a pencil eraser.

Advanced Scythe Kit – Left Handed $358.29 inc. GST . Grass Blades / Totnes Valley, NSW

Marketplacehazelcombefarm posted the article • 0 comments • 22 views • 2019-06-29 14:40 • came from similar tags

 
Description

The Advanced Scythe Kit consists of the 70 cm grass blade, the snath of your choice, a copper stone sheath, the Mailander Gruene Drache whetstone, the Picard scythe anvil and Picard peening hammer.

This kit is well suited to someone who is experienced working with metal and feels confident they could peen a blade freehanded.

Blade Length

There is only one length of blades that are left handed. We therefore recommend that if you feel you could manage a right handed scythe, which by the way is still used with two hands, you would be better to choose a right handed one. You have a much broader selection of blade lengths for right handed scythes.

Snath Length
 
If you are shorter than about 160 cm (5 ft 3 in), choose the Short snathIf you are between 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in) tall, choose the Standard snathIf you are between 176 cm and 188 cm (6 ft 2 in) tall, choose the Long snathIf you are between 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in) tall, choose the Extra Long snath

 

Please note: If you don’t feel confident to tackle freehanded peening at this stage, the Starter Scythe Kit, left handed provides you with an easier way of sharpening your blade. If you feel you would prefer to get a right handed kit, see the Starter Scythe Kit or Advanced Scythe Kit.

The Starter Scythe Kit consists of a grass blade of your choice, the snath of your choice, a copper stone sheath, the peening jig and the Mailander Gruene Drache whetstone.

This kit is well suited to someone who mainly wants to mow grass, but hasn’t had much experience working with metal.

Blade Length

If you mainly wish to mow in enclosed spaces such as around trees, garden beds and fences, the trimming blade would be most useful for you. If you wish to mow mainly wide open areas of grass, and maybe even make some hay, the field blade (75 cm) or even the hay making blade (90 cm) would be a better choice. If you have both enclosed and open areas to mow, the all-purpose blade would be a good choice. The vegie garden blade is for mowing in narrower rows in your vegetable garden. We’ve even seen people mowing salad vegetables with this blade when harvesting salad vegetables for market.

Snath Length


If you are shorter than about 160 cm (5 ft 3 in), choose the Short snathIf you are between 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in) tall, choose the Standard snathIf you are between 176 cm and 188 cm (6 ft 2 in) tall, choose the Long snathIf you are between 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in) tall, choose the Extra Long snath

Please note: If you are an experienced metal worker or blacksmith and feel confident that you could peen out the blade freehanded, see the Advanced Scythe Kit. If you are 100% left handed. see the Starter Scythe Kit, left handed or Advanced Scythe Kit, left handed.

Blade Attachment Ring $15.75 inc. GST (Totnes Valley Road, Totnes Valley, NSW)

Description

The blade attachment ring is the connecting piece of metal between the scythe blade and its handle, the snath.

If you buy a snath from us, this blade attachment ring and the accompanying Allen key are included with the snath. However, more and more people like to make their own snaths, as they did in days gone by, in which case it is very useful to be able to buy the blade attachment ring separately.

Included are some photos of how the blade attachment ring attaches the blade to the snath.

Photo 1 shows the blade attachment ring slid past the notch at the bottom of the snath with the nub of the blade about to be fitted into the notch.

Photo 2 shows the blade attachment ring has been slid back down so it is now positioned over the tang of the blade.

Photo 3 shows how the blade is secured using the two little grub screws and the Allen key.

00:04:08,479 --> 00:04:11,129

cell count kit to detect subclinical




64

00:04:11,329 --> 00:04:12,779

mastitis now I didn't tell you why we're




65

00:04:12,979 --> 00:04:15,719

doing this we're doing this because when




66

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,718

we got Alice the milk cow her milk at




67

00:04:18,918 --> 00:04:22,110

least from back quarters tasted salty




68

00:04:22,310 --> 00:04:24,600

salty tasting milk can be a sign of




69

00:04:24,800 --> 00:04:26,699

mastitis we've also been reading about




70

00:04:26,899 --> 00:04:29,040

it and there's a lot of other possible




71

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:30,449

reasons there's actually a ton of people




72

00:04:30,649 --> 00:04:33,019

right now on all the online cow boards




73

00:04:33,218 --> 00:04:35,189

posting about their salty tasting milk




74

00:04:35,389 --> 00:04:37,110

we're gonna do this test though this may




75

00:04:37,310 --> 00:04:39,809

help us know if she actually




76

00:04:40,009 --> 00:04:41,910

besides the concern would be that she




77

00:04:42,110 --> 00:04:43,588

might be like in an early stage of




78

00:04:43,788 --> 00:04:47,100

mastitis she actually her milk looks




79

00:04:47,300 --> 00:04:50,519

great and her udder looks fine so a lot




80

00:04:50,718 --> 00:04:53,429

is reassuring and we're gonna refer back




81

00:04:53,629 --> 00:04:55,709

to our instructions that Wilders eating




82

00:04:55,908 --> 00:04:59,968

four drops in milk okay we're okay no we




83

00:05:00,168 --> 00:05:02,549

only need four drops of milk on each one




84

00:05:02,749 --> 00:05:07,169

of these three four we're gonna rinse




85

00:05:07,369 --> 00:05:09,629

that out and then four drops of




86

00:05:09,829 --> 00:05:13,829

developer on each trip we've got to wait




87

00:05:14,028 --> 00:05:15,359

five minutes so while we're waiting I'm




88

00:05:15,559 --> 00:05:17,489

gonna taste all these milks I'm just




89

00:05:17,689 --> 00:05:31,170

tasting the left-back salty you're right




90

00:05:31,370 --> 00:05:34,538

back tastes really good to me




91

00:05:34,749 --> 00:05:37,649

right front tastes good left front




92

00:05:37,848 --> 00:05:38,879

tastes good they all taste good at the




93

00:05:39,079 --> 00:05:40,439

left back though tastes bad here's the




94

00:05:40,639 --> 00:05:43,139

test results left front is white right




95

00:05:43,338 --> 00:05:47,218

front right back and then here is the




96

00:05:47,418 --> 00:05:49,679

left back and what we're supposed to do




97

00:05:49,879 --> 00:05:52,649

is compare the color to this test strip




98

00:05:52,848 --> 00:05:54,569

honestly it's closest to this one which




99

00:05:54,769 --> 00:06:02,639

is 1500 cells times a thousand from Noli




100

00:06:02,838 --> 00:06:04,379

so it looks like she may have mastitis




101

00:06:04,579 --> 00:06:06,899

in her left back quarter this too this




102

00:06:07,098 --> 00:06:08,670

isn't a definitive diagnostic test




103

00:06:08,870 --> 00:06:10,468

format size but it looks like she




104

00:06:10,668 --> 00:06:14,189

probably does so we have some learning




105

00:06:14,389 --> 00:06:16,528

to do about treating mastitis we're




106

00:06:16,728 --> 00:06:18,059

doing everything right now we're milking




107

00:06:18,259 --> 00:06:19,920

her out in that back left quarter




108

00:06:20,120 --> 00:06:22,559

especially and her milk actually looks




109

00:06:22,759 --> 00:06:24,329

good it's not really it's not chunky or




110

00:06:24,528 --> 00:06:27,430

gloppy or anything




111

00:06:29,060 --> 00:06:31,960

this is by far my least favorite thing




112

00:06:32,160 --> 00:06:34,360

that we do around here I'm gonna dis bud




113

00:06:34,560 --> 00:06:37,449

all the goats there's a lot of reasons




114

00:06:37,649 --> 00:06:41,430

we do this I do think that it's not




115

00:06:41,629 --> 00:06:43,509

necessary if you're planning on keeping




116

00:06:43,709 --> 00:06:46,420

a goat but most people buying goats




117

00:06:46,620 --> 00:06:49,540

expect it and it would be a big turn-off




118

00:06:49,740 --> 00:06:52,000

to many people but we're going to knock




119

00:06:52,199 --> 00:06:53,590

it out really quick and let these babies




120

00:06:53,790 --> 00:06:57,830

go back to their mum




121

00:07:01,589 --> 00:07:03,559

all right you're done let's get you back




122

00:07:03,759 --> 00:07:07,520

to mommy now it's lucky to Luckys turn




123

00:07:07,720 --> 00:07:09,910

poor little lady sorry girl




124

00:07:10,110 --> 00:07:12,910

and that was Molly's turn sorry lady




125

00:07:13,110 --> 00:07:18,079

alright she's done these babies they're




126

00:07:18,279 --> 00:07:19,278

not gonna probably let me get close




127

00:07:19,478 --> 00:07:21,468

they're gonna say we remember what you




128

00:07:21,668 --> 00:07:23,960

just did to us hey guys




129

00:07:24,160 --> 00:07:28,929

a little burnt heads you guys are cute




130

00:07:29,129 --> 00:07:31,939

and that should be the lastest Budig I




131

00:07:32,139 --> 00:07:35,689

have to do this year she that calf is




132

00:07:35,889 --> 00:07:37,850

polled and we don't have a name for yet




133

00:07:38,050 --> 00:07:40,338

that calf and this guy you can see his




134

00:07:40,538 --> 00:07:42,290

horns I'm gonna let his horns grow




135

00:07:42,490 --> 00:07:44,959

though I'll tell you why because he's




136

00:07:45,158 --> 00:07:46,730

gonna be beefed within a year he's a




137

00:07:46,930 --> 00:07:48,350

good size two month old calf he's gonna




138

00:07:48,550 --> 00:07:50,540

be beefed within a year we're not we




139

00:07:50,740 --> 00:07:53,149

don't have to sell him yeah I just don't




140

00:07:53,348 --> 00:07:54,588

think it's gonna be a problem so he'll




141

00:07:54,788 --> 00:07:56,329

have some little horns by the time we




142

00:07:56,528 --> 00:07:57,739

eat but Sherman you can probably hear




143

00:07:57,939 --> 00:07:59,359

Breanna is mowing down here and you




144

00:07:59,559 --> 00:08:00,739

might say why aren't you mowing you're




145

00:08:00,939 --> 00:08:03,439

the man between us that's the more




146

00:08:03,639 --> 00:08:05,838

favorable job rather than we're doing




147

00:08:06,038 --> 00:08:07,910

work with this guy in your back I love




148

00:08:08,110 --> 00:08:09,829

wearing this guy but it just makes it




149

00:08:10,028 --> 00:08:12,619

hard to do work and so that is the job




150

00:08:12,819 --> 00:08:14,509

that both of us wanted she's doing it




151

00:08:14,709 --> 00:08:17,749

with that that was fun but I ran out of




172

00:09:03,490 --> 00:09:06,229

camera battery I've carefully burned




173

00:09:06,429 --> 00:09:08,179

around my apple trees not right next to




174

00:09:08,379 --> 00:09:13,688

him hey how's mowing going good Wow




175

00:09:13,889 --> 00:09:16,758

inside this box or fence post pick tail




176

00:09:16,958 --> 00:09:19,188

fence post for rotational grazing we've




177

00:09:19,389 --> 00:09:21,559

been wanting to actually rotationally




178

00:09:21,759 --> 00:09:24,289

graze our pasture forever and we're just




179

00:09:24,490 --> 00:09:25,519

now getting the equipment where it's




180

00:09:25,720 --> 00:09:29,129

actually feasible to do it




181

00:09:42,698 --> 00:09:44,459

well folks it's 5:30




182

00:09:44,659 --> 00:09:46,969

I didn't get done everything on my list




183

00:09:47,169 --> 00:09:49,618

actually I was hoping to rototiller the




184

00:09:49,818 --> 00:09:51,659

garden today but there was a lot of goat




185

00:09:51,860 --> 00:09:53,308

chasing you didn't see unfortunately I




186

00:09:53,509 --> 00:09:55,139

fixed that there was a hole in the fence




187

00:09:55,339 --> 00:09:57,238

basically where the buck was squeezing




188

00:09:57,438 --> 00:09:59,368

out through the fence and he got out I




189

00:09:59,568 --> 00:10:02,248

think four times he took one bite off a




190

00:10:02,448 --> 00:10:07,919

cherry tree buck this has been another




191

00:10:08,120 --> 00:10:11,188

great day on the homestead I'll see you




192

00:10:11,389 --> 00:10:12,839

don't forget to get your home sweet home




195

00:10:16,938 --> 00:10:18,599

set sure it actually looks sharper than




196

00:10:18,799 --> 00:10:20,698

that because this in white now and that




197

00:10:20,899 --> 00:10:24,188

starting now the boys are fertilizing




5

00:00:18,118 --> 00:00:20,409

these greens with fish fertilizer and




6

00:00:20,609 --> 00:00:22,210

they're just pouring it down each line




7

00:00:22,410 --> 00:00:24,159

with a pretty concentrated fish




8

00:00:24,359 --> 00:00:26,169

fertilizer and then we'll water this bed




9

00:00:26,368 --> 00:00:30,589

when we're done pull out those plants




10

00:00:31,989 --> 00:00:52,498

[Music]




11

00:00:52,698 --> 00:00:54,779

as much as possible it's planning dirt




12

00:00:54,979 --> 00:00:57,669

not in the newer




13

00:00:57,869 --> 00:01:00,498

and then just make sure that if you have




14

00:01:00,698 --> 00:01:01,849

locked the brakes make sure they get to




15

00:01:02,049 --> 00:01:03,419

spread out




16

00:01:03,619 --> 00:01:06,119

is that we want oil around them as much




17

00:01:06,319 --> 00:01:10,019

as all the raspberries are in and two




18

00:01:10,219 --> 00:01:12,750

19

00:01:12,950 --> 00:01:14,369

various at the bottom justice is




20

00:01:14,569 --> 00:01:15,689

watering them and then it's breakfast




21

00:01:15,890 --> 00:01:17,429

time you got the dirt baby and we're




22

00:01:17,629 --> 00:01:19,528

gonna go eat breakfast we're dirt baby




23

00:01:19,728 --> 00:01:21,450

we're checking the cow for subclinical




24

00:01:21,650 --> 00:01:24,689

mastitis so I've got these four jars to




25

00:01:24,890 --> 00:01:27,569

take samples from four quarters to the




26

00:01:27,769 --> 00:01:30,750

barn to milk after chasing a goat that




27

00:01:30,950 --> 00:01:45,079

was out here's my right back left back




28

00:01:45,280 --> 00:01:52,558

her left front and her right front now




29

00:01:52,759 --> 00:01:53,969

we'll just finish smoking out her




30

00:01:54,170 --> 00:01:54,939

backside




31

00:01:55,140 --> 00:02:03,540

[Music]

[Music]




33

00:02:29,889 --> 00:02:46,920

more raspberry plants came in to mail we




34

00:02:47,120 --> 00:02:50,300

have four Triple Crowns blackberries




35

00:02:50,500 --> 00:02:55,140

three black Jim blackberries I can't




36

00:02:55,340 --> 00:02:57,989

pronounce these we watch cheetah




37

00:02:58,188 --> 00:03:02,969

blackberries six double gold raspberries




38

00:03:03,169 --> 00:03:07,230

and four characters these plants we will




39

00:03:07,430 --> 00:03:08,700

not be planting today they have to be




40

00:03:08,900 --> 00:03:10,980

hardened off which means introduced




41

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:12,509

slowly to direct sunlight they've




42

00:03:12,709 --> 00:03:14,129

probably been grown in a greenhouse or




43

00:03:14,329 --> 00:03:16,289

under State cloth and you can kill them




44

00:03:16,489 --> 00:03:17,310

if you just put them straight out in the




45

00:03:17,509 --> 00:03:19,050

Sun so we'll let them get about two or




46

00:03:19,250 --> 00:03:21,269

three hours of Sun today and each day




47

00:03:21,468 --> 00:03:24,118

for the next couple days and then we'll




48

00:03:24,318 --> 00:03:25,980

plan them out next it's time for a quick




49

00:03:26,180 --> 00:03:27,989

herbal orientation for this guy who




50

00:03:28,188 --> 00:03:30,330

might be sent to run herb errands for




51

00:03:30,530 --> 00:03:33,149

cooking so you know green onions right




52

00:03:33,348 --> 00:03:36,659

pay attention now okay ready cilantro




53

00:03:36,859 --> 00:03:38,789

this one's dill if she wants to do




54

00:03:38,989 --> 00:03:40,368

that's what she wants this is chives




55

00:03:40,568 --> 00:03:42,539

it's kind of like onions but it's like




56

00:03:42,739 --> 00:03:45,929

tiny in this oregano this is called




57

00:03:46,128 --> 00:03:49,890

oregano this is called time this one is




58

00:03:50,090 --> 00:03:54,439

called sage this one is summer savory




59

00:03:54,639 --> 00:03:56,939

she wanted oregano when we send you out




60

00:03:57,139 --> 00:03:59,759

to get herbs take scissors and just clip




61

00:03:59,959 --> 00:04:01,020

off little pieces like that




62

00:04:01,219 --> 00:04:08,279

okay we're using this portable somatic




63

00:04:08,479 --> 00:04:11,129

cell count kit to detect subclinical




64

00:04:11,329 --> 00:04:12,779

mastitis now I didn't tell you why we're




65

00:04:12,979 --> 00:04:15,719

doing this we're doing this because when




66

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,718

we got Alice the milk cow her milk at




67

00:04:18,918 --> 00:04:22,110

least from back quarters tasted salty




68

00:04:22,310 --> 00:04:24,600

salty tasting milk can be a sign of




69

00:04:24,800 --> 00:04:26,699

mastitis we've also been reading about




70

00:04:26,899 --> 00:04:29,040

it and there's a lot of other possible




71

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:30,449

reasons there's actually a ton of people




72

00:04:30,649 --> 00:04:33,019

right now on all the online cow boards




73

00:04:33,218 --> 00:04:35,189

posting about their salty tasting milk




74

00:04:35,389 --> 00:04:37,110

we're gonna do this test though this may




75

00:04:37,310 --> 00:04:39,809

help us know if she actually




76

00:04:40,009 --> 00:04:41,910

besides the concern would be that she




77

00:04:42,110 --> 00:04:43,588

might be like in an early stage of




78

00:04:43,788 --> 00:04:47,100

mastitis she actually her milk looks




79

00:04:47,300 --> 00:04:50,519

great and her udder looks fine so a lot




80

00:04:50,718 --> 00:04:53,429

is reassuring and we're gonna refer back




81

00:04:53,629 --> 00:04:55,709

to our instructions that Wilders eating




82

00:04:55,908 --> 00:04:59,968

four drops in milk okay we're okay no we




83

00:05:00,168 --> 00:05:02,549

only need four drops of milk on each one




84

00:05:02,749 --> 00:05:07,169

of these three four we're gonna rinse




85

00:05:07,369 --> 00:05:09,629

that out and then four drops of




86

00:05:09,829 --> 00:05:13,829

developer on each trip we've got to wait




87

00:05:14,028 --> 00:05:15,359

five minutes so while we're waiting I'm




88

00:05:15,559 --> 00:05:17,489

gonna taste all these milks I'm just




89

00:05:17,689 --> 00:05:31,170

tasting the left-back salty you're right




90

00:05:31,370 --> 00:05:34,538

back tastes really good to me




91

00:05:34,749 --> 00:05:37,649

right front tastes good left front




92

00:05:37,848 --> 00:05:38,879

tastes good they all taste good at the




93

00:05:39,079 --> 00:05:40,439

left back though tastes bad here's the




94

00:05:40,639 --> 00:05:43,139

test results left front is white right




95

00:05:43,338 --> 00:05:47,218

front right back and then here is the




96

00:05:47,418 --> 00:05:49,679

left back and what we're supposed to do




97

00:05:49,879 --> 00:05:52,649

is compare the color to this test strip




98

00:05:52,848 --> 00:05:54,569

honestly it's closest to this one which




99

00:05:54,769 --> 00:06:02,639

is 1500 cells times a thousand from Noli




100

00:06:02,838 --> 00:06:04,379

so it looks like she may have mastitis




101

00:06:04,579 --> 00:06:06,899

in her left back quarter this too this




102

00:06:07,098 --> 00:06:08,670

isn't a definitive diagnostic test




103

00:06:08,870 --> 00:06:10,468

format size but it looks like she




104

00:06:10,668 --> 00:06:14,189

probably does so we have some learning




105

00:06:14,389 --> 00:06:16,528

to do about treating mastitis we're




106

00:06:16,728 --> 00:06:18,059

doing everything right now we're milking




107

00:06:18,259 --> 00:06:19,920

her out in that back left quarter




108

00:06:20,120 --> 00:06:22,559

especially and her milk actually looks




109

00:06:22,759 --> 00:06:24,329

good it's not really it's not chunky or




110

00:06:24,528 --> 00:06:27,430

gloppy or anything




111

00:06:29,060 --> 00:06:31,960

this is by far my least favorite thing




112

00:06:32,160 --> 00:06:34,360

that we do around here I'm gonna dis bud




113

00:06:34,560 --> 00:06:37,449

all the goats there's a lot of reasons




114

00:06:37,649 --> 00:06:41,430

we do this I do think that it's not




115

00:06:41,629 --> 00:06:43,509

necessary if you're planning on keeping




116

00:06:43,709 --> 00:06:46,420

a goat but most people buying goats




117

00:06:46,620 --> 00:06:49,540

expect it and it would be a big turn-off




118

00:06:49,740 --> 00:06:52,000

to many people but we're going to knock




119

00:06:52,199 --> 00:06:53,590

it out really quick and let these babies




120

00:06:53,790 --> 00:06:57,830

go back to their mum




121

00:07:01,589 --> 00:07:03,559

all right you're done let's get you back




122

00:07:03,759 --> 00:07:07,520

to mommy now it's lucky to Luckys turn




123

00:07:07,720 --> 00:07:09,910

poor little lady sorry girl




124

00:07:10,110 --> 00:07:12,910

and that was Molly's turn sorry lady




125

00:07:13,110 --> 00:07:18,079

alright she's done these babies they're




126

00:07:18,279 --> 00:07:19,278

not gonna probably let me get close




127

00:07:19,478 --> 00:07:21,468

they're gonna say we remember what you




128

00:07:21,668 --> 00:07:23,960

just did to us hey guys




129

00:07:24,160 --> 00:07:28,929

a little burnt heads you guys are cute




130

00:07:29,129 --> 00:07:31,939

and that should be the lastest Budig I




131

00:07:32,139 --> 00:07:35,689

have to do this year she that calf is




132

00:07:35,889 --> 00:07:37,850

polled and we don't have a name for yet




133

00:07:38,050 --> 00:07:40,338

that calf and this guy you can see his




134

00:07:40,538 --> 00:07:42,290

horns I'm gonna let his horns grow




135

00:07:42,490 --> 00:07:44,959

though I'll tell you why because he's




136

00:07:45,158 --> 00:07:46,730

gonna be beefed within a year he's a




137

00:07:46,930 --> 00:07:48,350

good size two month old calf he's gonna




138

00:07:48,550 --> 00:07:50,540

be beefed within a year we're not we




139

00:07:50,740 --> 00:07:53,149

don't have to sell him yeah I just don't




140

00:07:53,348 --> 00:07:54,588

think it's gonna be a problem so he'll




141

00:07:54,788 --> 00:07:56,329

have some little horns by the time we




142

00:07:56,528 --> 00:07:57,739

eat but Sherman you can probably hear




143

00:07:57,939 --> 00:07:59,359

Breanna is mowing down here and you




144

00:07:59,559 --> 00:08:00,739

might say why aren't you mowing you're




145

00:08:00,939 --> 00:08:03,439

the man between us that's the more




146

00:08:03,639 --> 00:08:05,838

favorable job rather than we're doing




147

00:08:06,038 --> 00:08:07,910

work with this guy in your back I love




148

00:08:08,110 --> 00:08:09,829

wearing this guy but it just makes it




149

00:08:10,028 --> 00:08:12,619

hard to do work and so that is the job




150

00:08:12,819 --> 00:08:14,509

that both of us wanted she's doing it




151

00:08:14,709 --> 00:08:17,749

out links below the video all right done




171

00:09:00,519 --> 00:09:03,289

with that that was fun but I ran out of




172

00:09:03,490 --> 00:09:06,229

camera battery I've carefully burned




173

00:09:06,429 --> 00:09:08,179

around my apple trees not right next to




174

00:09:08,379 --> 00:09:13,688

him hey how's mowing going good Wow




175

00:09:13,889 --> 00:09:16,758

inside this box or fence post pick tail




176

00:09:16,958 --> 00:09:19,188

fence post for rotational grazing we've




177

00:09:19,389 --> 00:09:21,559

been wanting to actually rotationally




178

00:09:21,759 --> 00:09:24,289

graze our pasture forever and we're just




179

00:09:24,490 --> 00:09:25,519

now getting the equipment where it's




180

00:09:25,720 --> 00:09:29,129

actually feasible to do it




181

00:09:42,698 --> 00:09:44,459

well folks it's 5:30




182

00:09:44,659 --> 00:09:46,969

I didn't get done everything on my list




183

00:09:47,169 --> 00:09:49,618

actually I was hoping to rototiller the




184

00:09:49,818 --> 00:09:51,659

garden today but there was a lot of goat




185

00:09:51,860 --> 00:09:53,308

chasing you didn't see unfortunately I




186

00:09:53,509 --> 00:09:55,139

fixed that there was a hole in the fence




187

00:09:55,339 --> 00:09:57,238

basically where the buck was squeezing




188

00:09:57,438 --> 00:09:59,368

out through the fence and he got out I




189

00:09:59,568 --> 00:10:02,248

think four times he took one bite off a




190

00:10:02,448 --> 00:10:07,919

cherry tree buck this has been another




191

00:10:08,120 --> 00:10:11,188

great day on the homestead I'll see you




192

00:10:11,389 --> 00:10:12,839

in another video yeah just go go go




193

00:10:13,039 --> 00:10:15,299

around here sweet homestead sir yeah




194

00:10:15,500 --> 00:10:16,738

don't forget to get your home sweet home




195

00:10:16,938 --> 00:10:18,599

set sure it actually looks sharper than




196

00:10:18,799 --> 00:10:20,698

that because this in white now and that




197

00:10:20,899 --> 00:10:24,188

white just pops up all the colors




198

00:00:09,250 --> 00:00:22,070

I don't think there's anything cuter




3

00:00:22,269 --> 00:00:23,629

than a bunch of Jersey cabs I've never




4

00:00:23,829 --> 00:00:25,309

seen them like this until the other day




5

00:00:25,509 --> 00:00:27,629

when we came out and look at this cow

10

00:01:29,969 --> 00:01:32,000

we gotta kick these goats out of the




11

00:01:32,200 --> 00:01:34,789

barn because we're gonna put cows in




12

00:01:34,989 --> 00:01:37,319

here




13

00:01:40,079 --> 00:02:05,829

come on lady yes the goats from the




14

00:02:06,030 --> 00:02:10,819

other side of this gate in there




15

00:02:17,900 --> 00:02:25,120

everyone's okay we got our New Jersey




16

00:02:25,319 --> 00:02:29,950

cow pick her up today as you saw in the




17

00:02:30,150 --> 00:02:33,610

video her name she comes with his




18

00:02:33,810 --> 00:02:38,800

Wallace and this is a little heifer calf




19

00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:41,890

over on this side and then we decided to




20

00:02:42,090 --> 00:02:46,210

go ahead and get this steer and bring




21

00:02:46,409 --> 00:02:46,840

him along




22

00:02:47,039 --> 00:02:50,469

this is not her calf but our plan is to




23

00:02:50,669 --> 00:02:53,439

get him to nurse on her




24

00:02:53,639 --> 00:02:56,830

so both calves will be on her it's a




25

00:02:57,030 --> 00:02:58,689

little bit of a challenge but we've been




26

00:02:58,889 --> 00:02:59,980

going back and forth and trying to




27

00:03:00,180 --> 00:03:02,020

decide we pretty much decided against it




28

00:03:02,219 --> 00:03:03,400

and then we said you know what let's do




29

00:03:03,599 --> 00:03:09,889

it and so we brought him along as well




30

00:03:12,430 --> 00:03:14,610

cows always get dirty in trailers




31

00:03:14,810 --> 00:03:16,980

because they poop all over and rub up




32

00:03:17,180 --> 00:03:25,260

against the sides we're just letting




33

00:03:25,460 --> 00:03:27,719

them kind of chill out down here get




34

00:03:27,919 --> 00:03:28,920

used to being in here we'll leave them




35

00:03:29,120 --> 00:03:34,410

in the barn at least until tomorrow to




36

00:03:34,610 --> 00:03:35,969

kind of get used to being here and calm




37

00:03:36,169 --> 00:03:37,680

down before we let him out in the fence




38

00:03:37,879 --> 00:03:42,140

we also want to keep this calf the steer




39

00:03:42,340 --> 00:03:45,840

real close to her we got to watch this




40

00:03:46,039 --> 00:03:49,680

process very closely and may need to get




41

00:03:49,879 --> 00:03:52,080

real hands-on in it and getting him to




42

00:03:52,280 --> 00:03:54,270

nurse on her the question is not will he




43

00:03:54,469 --> 00:03:56,280

nurse on her of course he will the




44

00:03:56,479 --> 00:04:01,590

question is will she let him nurse we




45

00:04:01,789 --> 00:04:03,689

already actually saw him in the trailer




46

00:04:03,889 --> 00:04:05,790

nurse a little bit which is that's




47

00:04:05,990 --> 00:04:08,630

encouraging and she didn't pick him off




48

00:04:08,830 --> 00:04:11,520

sometimes it's hard to get cast in her




49

00:04:11,719 --> 00:04:13,439

son different moments but we already




50

00:04:13,639 --> 00:04:16,139

knew that this calf kind of tried to




51

00:04:16,339 --> 00:04:18,509

nurse on every moment around so we knew




52

00:04:18,709 --> 00:04:22,120

that that was gonna be the problem




53

00:04:25,620 --> 00:04:28,110

how does that feel having a cow again




54

00:04:28,310 --> 00:04:35,500

right good I do think that learning the




55

00:04:35,699 --> 00:04:38,350

new routine with new animals you know it




56

00:04:38,550 --> 00:04:40,990

stresses the animals to be moved but it




57

00:04:41,189 --> 00:04:43,300

also stresses the new animals you know




58

00:04:43,500 --> 00:04:45,370

that have to get used to new creatures




59

00:04:45,569 --> 00:04:47,230

and then it stresses us not nearly as




60

00:04:47,430 --> 00:04:50,079

much but you know just takes time to




61

00:04:50,279 --> 00:04:53,199

learn the new routine but I'm really




62

00:04:53,399 --> 00:04:56,439

excited I just feel so blessed that we




63

00:04:56,639 --> 00:05:09,610

found a grass-fed Jersey so close it was




64

00:05:09,810 --> 00:05:11,889

basically a year ago that her last milk




65

00:05:12,089 --> 00:05:15,278

cow died and we've been looking forward




66

00:05:15,478 --> 00:05:17,860

to this day people asked us over and




67

00:05:18,060 --> 00:05:18,968

over when you're gonna get a milk cow




68

00:05:19,168 --> 00:05:21,460

and we always we never were impatient




69

00:05:21,660 --> 00:05:23,079

for the day to come but I do feel like




70

00:05:23,279 --> 00:05:25,360

this is the right cow at the right time




71

00:05:25,560 --> 00:05:30,730

for us I feel like in some ways we know




72

00:05:30,930 --> 00:05:32,410

a lot more than you then in some ways we




73

00:05:32,610 --> 00:05:34,000

still have so much to learn about cows




74

00:05:34,199 --> 00:05:36,550

and it's intimidating honestly just not




75

00:05:36,750 --> 00:05:39,009

not keeping a cow but as health problems




76

00:05:39,209 --> 00:05:42,218

arise this intimidating but I'm pretty




77

00:05:42,418 --> 00:05:45,870

confident that we're going into it as




78

00:05:46,069 --> 00:05:49,028

just with them in many ways the kind of




79

00:05:49,228 --> 00:05:51,639

a better footing in I wouldn't say a




80

00:05:51,839 --> 00:05:53,079

better footing in animal care but kind




81

00:05:53,279 --> 00:05:54,370

of in where we're at in our lives right




82

00:05:54,569 --> 00:05:58,240

now to just do a really fine job with




83

00:05:58,439 --> 00:06:04,629

this cow it is Alice we wanted to keep




84

00:06:04,829 --> 00:06:07,930

it similar but I really I don't like




85

00:06:08,129 --> 00:06:09,819

changing animals names but in this




86

00:06:10,019 --> 00:06:18,850

instance I really wanted to so folks




87

00:06:19,050 --> 00:06:19,900

thanks for joining us we'll let you know




88

00:06:20,100 --> 00:06:24,189

how things are going very soon as we




89

00:06:24,389 --> 00:06:27,009

start milking and how the steer calf is




90

00:06:27,209 --> 00:06:28,410

taking too




91

00:06:28,610 --> 00:06:33,689

nursing on a new mama so we'll see you

I don't think there's anything cuter

00:00:22,269 --> 00:00:23,629

than a bunch of Jersey cabs I've never




4

00:00:23,829 --> 00:00:25,309

seen them like this until the other day




5

00:00:25,509 --> 00:00:27,629

10

00:01:29,969 --> 00:01:32,000

we gotta kick these goats out of the




11

00:01:32,200 --> 00:01:34,789

barn because we're gonna put cows in




12

00:01:34,989 --> 00:01:37,319

here




13

00:01:40,079 --> 00:02:05,829

come on lady yes the goats from the




14

00:02:06,030 --> 00:02:10,819

other side of this gate in there




15

00:02:17,900 --> 00:02:25,120

everyone's okay we got our New Jersey




16

00:02:25,319 --> 00:02:29,950

cow pick her up today as you saw in the




17

00:02:30,150 --> 00:02:33,610

video her name she comes with his




18

00:02:33,810 --> 00:02:38,800

Wallace and this is a little heifer calf




19

00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:41,890

over on this side and then we decided to




20

00:02:42,090 --> 00:02:46,210

go ahead and get this steer and bring




21

00:02:46,409 --> 00:02:46,840

him along




22

00:02:47,039 --> 00:02:50,469

this is not her calf but our plan is to




23

00:02:50,669 --> 00:02:53,439

get him to nurse on her




24

00:02:53,639 --> 00:02:56,830

so both calves will be on her it's a




25

00:02:57,030 --> 00:02:58,689

little bit of a challenge but we've been




26

00:02:58,889 --> 00:02:59,980

going back and forth and trying to




27

00:03:00,180 --> 00:03:02,020

decide we pretty much decided against it




28

00:03:02,219 --> 00:03:03,400

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:02,468

this is the miracle of a cow choosing to




2

00:00:02,669 --> 00:00:04,459

adopt a calf that's not her own

00:00:04,660 --> 00:00:36,929

[Music]




4

00:00:42,119 --> 00:00:43,869

when we got her cow the other day we




5

00:00:44,070 --> 00:00:47,320

made a bold and possibly stupid decision




6

00:00:47,520 --> 00:00:50,500

this was the decision we got a steer




7

00:00:50,700 --> 00:00:54,070

calf that didn't belong to Alice the cow




8

00:00:54,270 --> 00:00:58,520

that we bought we just brought him along




9

00:01:10,328 --> 00:01:14,219

this kind of change is very stressful on




10

00:01:14,420 --> 00:01:18,088

cows and not all mother cows will take




11

00:01:18,289 --> 00:01:20,308

on an extra calf to nurse well why did




12

00:01:20,509 --> 00:01:24,238

we do it we did it because in our whole




13

00:01:24,438 --> 00:01:26,368

home city experience the number one




14

00:01:26,569 --> 00:01:30,558

thing that was productive and




15

00:01:30,759 --> 00:01:33,149

cost-effective that we've done was




16

00:01:33,349 --> 00:01:34,890

raising a steer for beef




17

00:01:35,090 --> 00:01:36,778

we raised brownie out we raised him on




18

00:01:36,978 --> 00:01:39,899

grass and about four or five bales of




19

00:01:40,099 --> 00:01:44,250

hay and it was an incredible value and a




20

00:01:44,450 --> 00:01:47,909

huge amount of production from our small




21

00:01:48,109 --> 00:01:50,649

piece of land




22

00:01:58,159 --> 00:02:00,988

we went back and forth actually the days




23

00:02:01,188 --> 00:02:03,448

before we got the cow and we had decided




24

00:02:03,649 --> 00:02:05,789

completely against getting the steer we




25

00:02:05,989 --> 00:02:08,939

said you know it's just too risky we're




26

00:02:09,139 --> 00:02:11,640

new at this the cow would be under




27

00:02:11,840 --> 00:02:13,830

stress moving into a new environment the




28

00:02:14,030 --> 00:02:15,960

calf would be under stress we don't




29

00:02:16,159 --> 00:02:17,399

really know what we're doing it can be




30

00:02:17,598 --> 00:02:20,640

very involved you know some people have




31

00:02:20,840 --> 00:02:24,030

to restrain the cow and actually




32

00:02:24,229 --> 00:02:26,130

physically put the calf on the cow some




33

00:02:26,330 --> 00:02:28,649

people use scent cover up see cows don't




34

00:02:28,848 --> 00:02:30,599

really want to just take on any random




35

00:02:30,799 --> 00:02:32,939

calf they're they're linked together




36

00:02:33,139 --> 00:02:36,719

with sound with smell with touch and




37

00:02:36,919 --> 00:02:39,330

they'll only nurse their own calf




38

00:02:39,530 --> 00:02:42,219

normally




39

00:02:52,568 --> 00:02:54,810

then at the last minute we decided you




40

00:02:55,009 --> 00:02:56,730

know what we really are gonna go for




41

00:02:56,930 --> 00:02:58,770

this we're gonna do it we got this deer




42

00:02:58,969 --> 00:03:00,420

we brought him home we were kind of




43

00:03:00,620 --> 00:03:02,368

worried worried that it was just gonna




44

00:03:02,568 --> 00:03:05,790

be a disaster because worst case is the




45

00:03:05,990 --> 00:03:09,300

calf doesn't nurse and get sick and dies




46

00:03:09,500 --> 00:03:13,920

or we spend a whole week just fighting




47

00:03:14,120 --> 00:03:17,100

it and fighting it fighting and end up




48

00:03:17,300 --> 00:03:20,469

bottle feeding the calf




49

00:03:23,169 --> 00:03:26,969

we got the calf back into the barn we




50

00:03:27,169 --> 00:03:30,330

got the cow in the calf and the plan was




51

00:03:30,530 --> 00:03:32,100

initially just to watch and keep them




52

00:03:32,300 --> 00:03:34,710

very close but then I realized I can't




53

00:03:34,909 --> 00:03:37,740

sit and watch them all the time and I




54

00:03:37,939 --> 00:03:39,930

won't even know if he's nursing so I




55

00:03:40,129 --> 00:03:42,150

locked him up for about three or four




56

00:03:42,349 --> 00:03:44,939

hours and then I came back that first




57

00:03:45,139 --> 00:03:48,900

evening and I let him out and he walked




58

00:03:49,099 --> 00:03:52,740

out and he tried to nurse and she kicked




59

00:03:52,939 --> 00:03:54,689

him in the head and I thought oh gosh




60

00:03:54,889 --> 00:03:56,879

here we go and he tried to nurse again




61

00:03:57,079 --> 00:03:59,280

and she butted him off and I was just




62

00:03:59,479 --> 00:04:01,170

thinking we're we're in for it this is




63

00:04:01,370 --> 00:04:05,920

going to be such a hassle




64

00:04:16,750 --> 00:04:20,210

and then




65

00:04:20,410 --> 00:04:23,300

he didn't give up he tried to nurse




66

00:04:23,500 --> 00:04:26,930

again and she didn't do anything




67

00:04:27,129 --> 00:04:31,100

and I sat there for about ten minutes




68

00:04:31,300 --> 00:04:35,600

and just watched him nurse on his new




69

00:04:35,800 --> 00:04:40,670

mama I think that she realized that his




70

00:04:40,870 --> 00:04:43,129

mom wasn't there maybe I'm reading too




71

00:04:43,329 --> 00:04:45,230

much into it but I really think that's




72

00:04:45,430 --> 00:04:47,569

what happened he was bellowing he was




73

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,340

hungry and she just something clicked in




74

00:04:49,540 --> 00:04:51,439

her head and she just let him so from




75

00:04:51,639 --> 00:04:53,560

that moment on he's been nursing




76

00:04:53,759 --> 00:04:57,400

perfectly it's kind of the miracle of a




77

00:04:57,600 --> 00:05:03,450

cow choosing to adopt a calf




78

00:05:03,579 --> 00:05:10,430

[Music]




79

00:05:10,629 --> 00:05:13,129

we thought might be just the disaster




80

00:05:13,329 --> 00:05:17,000

turned out in this case to be really




81

00:05:17,199 --> 00:05:19,790

easy for us we're so thankful for that




82

00:05:19,990 --> 00:05:21,770

and thankful that with our first




83

00:05:21,970 --> 00:05:24,470

experience of grafting a calf onto a




84

00:05:24,670 --> 00:05:28,530

mama cow that it went really well




85

00:05:54,740 --> 00:05:59,449

it's happening right now you can see it




86

00:05:59,649 --> 00:06:02,550

little beefsteak is nursing away




87

00:06:02,750 --> 00:06:06,240

greedily and mama Alice is standing




88

00:06:06,439 --> 00:06:09,389

perfectly still calm she's not kicking




89

00:06:09,589 --> 00:06:11,160

she's not butting him she's not




90

00:06:11,360 --> 00:06:13,470

objecting him she's not objecting to him




91

00:06:13,670 --> 00:06:16,290

nursing she's letting him nurse letting




92

00:06:16,490 --> 00:06:21,639

him feed and now they're both doing it




93

00:06:32,949 --> 00:06:37,910

we just feel so blessed with this cow




94

00:06:38,110 --> 00:06:41,910

for a couple reasons and not least among




95

00:06:42,110 --> 00:06:49,079

them is this that apparently she's a




96

00:06:49,279 --> 00:06:53,939

great nurse count because we didn't have




97

00:06:54,139 --> 00:06:55,620

to do anything to make this happen




98

00:06:55,819 --> 00:06:58,050

literally nothing we put him together in




99

00:06:58,250 --> 00:07:03,329

the barn and within just a few hours he




100

00:07:03,529 --> 00:07:06,400

was nursing and she had accepted them




101

00:07:06,600 --> 00:07:09,468

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:02,468

this is the miracle of a cow choosing to




2

00:00:02,669 --> 00:00:04,459

adopt a calf that's not her own




3

00:00:04,660 --> 00:00:36,929

[Music]




4

00:00:42,119 --> 00:00:43,869

when we got her cow the other day we




5

00:00:44,070 --> 00:00:47,320

made a bold and possibly stupid decision




6

00:00:47,520 --> 00:00:50,500

this was the decision we got a steer




7

00:00:50,700 --> 00:00:54,070

calf that didn't belong to Alice the cow




8

00:00:54,270 --> 00:00:58,520

that we bought we just brought him along




9

00:01:10,328 --> 00:01:14,219

this kind of change is very stressful on




10

00:01:14,420 --> 00:01:18,088

cows and not all mother cows will take




11

00:01:18,289 --> 00:01:20,308

on an extra calf to nurse well why did




12

00:01:20,509 --> 00:01:24,238

we do it we did it because in our whole




13

00:01:24,438 --> 00:01:26,368

home city experience the number one




14

00:01:26,569 --> 00:01:30,558

thing that was productive and




15

00:01:30,759 --> 00:01:33,149

cost-effective that we've done was




16

00:01:33,349 --> 00:01:34,890

raising a steer for beef




17

00:01:35,090 --> 00:01:36,778

we raised brownie out we raised him on




18

00:01:36,978 --> 00:01:39,899

grass and about four or five bales of




19

00:01:40,099 --> 00:01:44,250

hay and it was an incredible value and a




20

00:01:44,450 --> 00:01:47,909

huge amount of production from our small




21

00:01:48,109 --> 00:01:50,649

piece of land




22

00:01:58,159 --> 00:02:00,988

we went back and forth actually the days




23

00:02:01,188 --> 00:02:03,448

before we got the cow and we had decided




24

00:02:03,649 --> 00:02:05,789

completely against getting the steer we




25

00:02:05,989 --> 00:02:08,939

said you know it's just too risky we're




26

00:02:09,139 --> 00:02:11,640

new at this the cow would be under




27

00:02:11,840 --> 00:02:13,830

stress moving into a new environment the




28

00:02:14,030 --> 00:02:15,960

calf would be under stress we don't




29

00:02:16,159 --> 00:02:17,399

really know what we're doing it can be




30

00:02:17,598 --> 00:02:20,640

very involved you know some people have




31

00:02:20,840 --> 00:02:24,030

to restrain the cow and actually




32

00:02:24,229 --> 00:02:26,130

physically put the calf on the cow some




33

00:02:26,330 --> 00:02:28,649

people use scent cover up see cows don't




34

00:02:28,848 --> 00:02:30,599

really want to just take on any random




35

00:02:30,799 --> 00:02:32,939

calf they're they're linked together




36

00:02:33,139 --> 00:02:36,719

with sound with smell with touch and




37

00:02:36,919 --> 00:02:39,330

they'll only nurse their own calf




38

00:02:39,530 --> 00:02:42,219

normally




39

00:02:52,568 --> 00:02:54,810

then at the last minute we decided you




40

00:02:55,009 --> 00:02:56,730

know what we really are gonna go for




41

00:02:56,930 --> 00:02:58,770

this we're gonna do it we got this deer




42

00:02:58,969 --> 00:03:00,420

we brought him home we were kind of




43

00:03:00,620 --> 00:03:02,368

worried worried that it was just gonna




44

00:03:02,568 --> 00:03:05,790

be a disaster because worst case is the




45

00:03:05,990 --> 00:03:09,300

calf doesn't nurse and get sick and dies




46

00:03:09,500 --> 00:03:13,920

or we spend a whole week just fighting




47

00:03:14,120 --> 00:03:17,100

it and fighting it fighting and end up




48

00:03:17,300 --> 00:03:20,469

much into it but I really think that's




72

00:04:45,430 --> 00:04:47,569

what happened he was bellowing he was




73

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,340

hungry and she just something clicked in

00:04:49,540 --> 00:04:51,439

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

looks good but needs weeding kale the




85

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

same beets the same spinach looks pretty




86

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

good that is they think radishes green




87

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

onions the kids are constantly eating




88

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

these you can see all these tops pulled




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

cabbage is doing in this tunnel it's




103

00:05:32,250 --> 00:05:34,329

doing awesome and it is not being eaten




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

a lot of weeds but the plants look




107

00:05:46,350 --> 00:05:47,980

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

though apples on yeah that's just a




136

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

second year in the ground tree I got




137

00:07:10,750 --> 00:07:15,860

some hay for you do you want it there's




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

majority of these chickens




140

00:07:28,709 --> 00:07:30,579

00:08:28,978 --> 00:08:31,468

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

looks good but needs weeding kale the




85

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

same beets the same spinach looks pretty




86

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

good that is they think radishes green




87

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

onions the kids are constantly eating




88

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

these you can see all these tops pulled




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

doing awesome and it is not being eaten




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

a lot of weeds but the plants look




107

00:05:46,350 --> 00:05:47,980

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

some baby goats

[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

though apples on yeah that's just a




136

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

some hay for you do you want it there's




138

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

a few stray chickens but we'll let the




139

Building Raise Beds down a slope - Fenced in Garden Area - Part 3

VideosCountry View Acres posted the article • 0 comments • 42 views • 2019-05-29 18:11 • came from similar tags

 

 
 
We are building a Fenced in Garden area with raised beds around the perimeter. The location we are building our garden is next to our house, but it is not level ground and is sloping downhill away from our house and toward our pond. So as we are building our raised beds, they appear to stair step down the hill.

4

00:00:42,710 --> 00:00:45,459

today I'm back out here on the on our




5

00:00:45,659 --> 00:00:47,679

fenced in garden project today we're




6

00:00:47,880 --> 00:00:49,509

going to be continuing our raised beds




7

00:00:49,710 --> 00:00:51,549

we're gonna continue them down the hill




8

00:00:51,750 --> 00:00:54,909

on this side and this is on a slope




9

00:00:55,109 --> 00:00:58,269

we've got about a 40 inch change in




10

00:00:58,469 --> 00:01:01,538

elevation as we go down this hill so as




11

00:01:01,738 --> 00:01:03,428

we build these raised beds each one of




12

00:01:03,628 --> 00:01:04,840

these raised beds is probably gonna step




13

00:01:05,040 --> 00:01:07,929

down about you know six inches or so and




14

00:01:08,129 --> 00:01:09,459

then go to the next one will step down




15

00:01:09,659 --> 00:01:11,679

about six inches and go across




16

00:01:11,879 --> 00:01:13,989

so each raised bed will be you know




17

00:01:14,189 --> 00:01:16,359

built level and then we'll just have to




18

00:01:16,560 --> 00:01:18,969

drop down and start building the next




19

00:01:19,170 --> 00:01:21,308

raised bed that's kind of the way we'll




20

00:01:21,509 --> 00:01:22,989

stair-step the raised beds down this




21

00:01:23,189 --> 00:01:26,980

hill so these two posts right here you




22

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:28,418

can see are closer together that's where




23

00:01:28,618 --> 00:01:31,390

we'll have one of the gate to enter and




24

00:01:31,590 --> 00:01:33,909

exit the the garden area and it's going




25

00:01:34,109 --> 00:01:35,649

to lead out to this water hydrant back




26

00:01:35,849 --> 00:01:37,119

here and it'll also lead out to the




27

00:01:37,319 --> 00:01:39,879

orchard and so the way I'll probably




28

00:01:40,079 --> 00:01:41,259

build this is I'll probably start on




29

00:01:41,459 --> 00:01:43,359

this side and we're going to work our




30

00:01:43,560 --> 00:01:45,609

way down this hill till we get to the




31

00:01:45,810 --> 00:01:47,198

gate and that's going to be kind of an




32

00:01:47,399 --> 00:01:49,929

end point and we'll finish these three




33

00:01:50,129 --> 00:01:52,390

raised beds first and then we'll




34

00:01:52,590 --> 00:01:54,519

probably actually go down here to the




35

00:01:54,719 --> 00:01:56,649

corner we'll build this corner raised




36

00:01:56,849 --> 00:01:58,868

bed and then we'll work our way back up




37

00:01:59,069 --> 00:02:01,689

to the gate here and then that will




38

00:02:01,890 --> 00:02:05,649

finish out that whole side it has rained




39

00:02:05,849 --> 00:02:07,689

it seems like almost every day around




40

00:02:07,890 --> 00:02:10,539

here really hard to keep moving on these




41

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:13,240

projects so but last weekend I was able




42

00:02:13,439 --> 00:02:15,009

to get out here and I was able to set




43

00:02:15,209 --> 00:02:16,960

all these posts along this side I got




44

00:02:17,159 --> 00:02:19,660

them set in concrete so they've been set




45

00:02:19,860 --> 00:02:23,350

now for a week so these are all good the




46

00:02:23,550 --> 00:02:24,850

concrete's all cured it's all ready to




47

00:02:25,050 --> 00:02:26,950

go so we can start building these raised




48

00:02:27,150 --> 00:02:30,939

beds today so I did end up ordering a




49

00:02:31,139 --> 00:02:33,730

dump truck load full of topsoil so this




50

00:02:33,930 --> 00:02:35,590

is probably around 15 tons worth of




51

00:02:35,789 --> 00:02:37,868

topsoil this was dropped off here a few




52

00:02:38,068 --> 00:02:40,480

days ago and so the plan is that I'm




53

00:02:40,680 --> 00:02:42,399

gonna use this topsoil to fill the




54

00:02:42,598 --> 00:02:44,649

raised beds up so I'll just take the




55

00:02:44,848 --> 00:02:46,840

topsoil I'll mix that with some compost




56

00:02:47,039 --> 00:02:48,969

maybe some peat moss or some other




57

00:02:49,169 --> 00:02:51,489

organic material and you know we'll mix




58

00:02:51,688 --> 00:02:53,739

that up and fill the raised beds with it




59

00:02:53,938 --> 00:02:56,050

this will be way cheaper way




60

00:02:56,250 --> 00:02:57,580

to be able to fill up these raised beds




61

00:02:57,780 --> 00:03:00,370

and hopefully I got a lot of raised beds




62

00:03:00,569 --> 00:03:01,870

on this project by the time I'm done




63

00:03:02,069 --> 00:03:03,310

there's gonna be raised beds going all




64

00:03:03,509 --> 00:03:05,080

the way around so hopefully that's




65

00:03:05,280 --> 00:03:09,169

enough dirt to be able throw them all up




66

00:03:09,469 --> 00:03:11,439

so first thing this morning I actually




67

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,890

got out here and I weeded the orchard so




68

00:03:15,090 --> 00:03:16,900

this orchard had not the first time I we




69

00:03:17,099 --> 00:03:19,980

did it you know we did it all year and




70

00:03:20,180 --> 00:03:23,200

so today the orchard actually looks kind




71

00:03:23,400 --> 00:03:24,790

of groomed everything's looking all nice




72

00:03:24,990 --> 00:03:27,820

all the trees are got all their leaves




73

00:03:28,020 --> 00:03:31,030

on them and we've got we've got our




74

00:03:31,229 --> 00:03:32,439

strawberries here look at all the blooms




75

00:03:32,639 --> 00:03:34,150

on these strawberries we're about to




76

00:03:34,349 --> 00:03:35,800

have a ton of strawberries here pre soon




77

00:03:36,000 --> 00:03:38,680

but but the orchards looking pretty good




78

00:03:38,879 --> 00:03:40,330

I think once we get done with this




79

00:03:40,530 --> 00:03:41,410

garden area here




80

00:03:41,610 --> 00:03:43,390

it'll be really nice to be able have all




81

00:03:43,590 --> 00:03:45,520

these fruit and these berries and then




82

00:03:45,719 --> 00:03:46,840

all the vegetables and it'll be all




83

00:03:47,039 --> 00:03:48,189

right next to the house I think this is




84

00:03:48,389 --> 00:03:50,020

gonna turn out to be a pretty good setup




85

00:03:50,219 --> 00:03:52,870

when we're done so let's go ahead see if




86

00:03:53,069 --> 00:03:54,710

we get these raised vegetables




87

00:03:54,909 --> 00:04:08,759

[Music]




88

00:04:08,959 --> 00:04:11,099

so I dug this out for this first board




89

00:04:11,299 --> 00:04:12,480

so it could sit in there level




90

00:04:12,680 --> 00:04:14,849

this board is sitting basically on the




91

00:04:15,049 --> 00:04:17,069

grass on this side but for it to sit




92

00:04:17,269 --> 00:04:19,680

level I had to dig it out so it into the




93

00:04:19,879 --> 00:04:21,270

ground over here so could sit in the




94

00:04:21,470 --> 00:04:23,610

ground and you can see how deep in the




95

00:04:23,810 --> 00:04:25,559

ground that is it's about six inches




96

00:04:25,759 --> 00:04:28,319

down in the ground for that to be able




97

00:04:28,519 --> 00:04:31,050

to sit level across there so what I'm




98

00:04:31,250 --> 00:04:33,210

going to do now I'm gonna go ahead I'm




99

00:04:33,410 --> 00:04:35,300

going to screw the board to this post




100

00:04:35,500 --> 00:04:37,379

I'm gonna double check that it's still




101

00:04:37,579 --> 00:04:39,240

level and then I'll attach it to this




102

00:04:39,439 --> 00:04:41,338

post here and then I'll add my second




103

00:04:41,538 --> 00:04:43,050

board on top of here and then I'm just




104

00:04:43,250 --> 00:04:44,968

gonna go ahead and continue down with




105

00:04:45,168 --> 00:04:48,420

that same method all the way down one




106

00:04:48,620 --> 00:04:49,920

thing I'd like to point out real quick




107

00:04:50,120 --> 00:04:53,040

is that when you when I filled this up




108

00:04:53,240 --> 00:04:56,160

with concrete I didn't fill it all the




109

00:04:56,360 --> 00:04:58,528

way to the top with concrete you can see




110

00:04:58,728 --> 00:05:01,889

the concrete's like this deep down the




111

00:05:02,089 --> 00:05:03,329

reason I did that is because I knew I




112

00:05:03,529 --> 00:05:04,920

was gonna have to dig down about six




113

00:05:05,120 --> 00:05:07,410

inches on this side and attach a board




114

00:05:07,610 --> 00:05:09,838

so if you're working down a hill like




115

00:05:10,038 --> 00:05:11,460

this you don't want to fill these




116

00:05:11,660 --> 00:05:13,920

completely full of concrete because you




117

00:05:14,120 --> 00:05:16,680

will be you know digging down one side




118

00:05:16,879 --> 00:05:18,600

and attaching a board or something like




119

00:05:18,800 --> 00:05:22,379

that so so I've tried my best to not




120

00:05:22,579 --> 00:05:24,959

fill these full of concrete there will




121

00:05:25,158 --> 00:05:26,759

be a couple that I may have a little bit




122

00:05:26,959 --> 00:05:28,620

full and may get in the way but if




123

00:05:28,819 --> 00:05:30,449

you're doing this down a slope like this




124

00:05:30,649 --> 00:05:32,670

I mean if this is perfectly level you




125

00:05:32,870 --> 00:05:34,319

can pretty much fill those to the top




126

00:05:34,519 --> 00:05:35,819

but since it's not and we're going




127

00:05:36,019 --> 00:05:38,009

downhill it's a good idea to not fill




128

00:05:38,209 --> 00:05:40,680

them up all the way and so don't doesn't




129

00:05:40,879 --> 00:05:43,079

get in your way later I'm gonna go ahead




130

00:05:43,279 --> 00:05:44,639

I'm basically gonna go ahead and




131

00:05:44,839 --> 00:05:47,028

continue this section right here and




132

00:05:47,228 --> 00:05:49,290

hopefully when we come back I'll have it




133

00:05:49,490 --> 00:05:50,629

done




134

00:05:50,829 --> 00:06:17,930

[Music]




135

00:06:18,129 --> 00:06:19,400

[Applause]




136

00:06:19,600 --> 00:06:29,028

[Music]




137

00:06:31,230 --> 00:06:40,920

[Music]




138

00:06:41,120 --> 00:06:43,720

so the concrete in this post actually




139

00:06:43,920 --> 00:06:45,910

poured too high so right down here this




140

00:06:46,110 --> 00:06:48,639

is the level that I need my board to be




141

00:06:48,839 --> 00:06:50,350

but you can see my concrete's probably




142

00:06:50,550 --> 00:06:52,030

at least an extra two inches taller than




143

00:06:52,230 --> 00:06:54,610

that so I'm going to take a masonry




144

00:06:54,810 --> 00:06:56,560

hammer I'm going to try to chip this one




145

00:06:56,759 --> 00:06:59,199

side away here and hopefully I can just




146

00:06:59,399 --> 00:07:01,389

take the top of this side off so that I




147

00:07:01,589 --> 00:07:03,430

can slide that board in there and attach




148

00:07:03,629 --> 00:07:05,379

it to that side of the post so I don't




149

00:07:05,579 --> 00:07:06,670

want to totally destroy all this




150

00:07:06,870 --> 00:07:08,110

concrete I just want to take off a




151

00:07:08,310 --> 00:07:10,740

little section of it




152

00:07:10,939 --> 00:07:16,060

[Music]




153

00:07:16,259 --> 00:07:16,629

[Applause]




154

00:07:16,829 --> 00:08:04,850

155

00:08:05,050 --> 00:08:06,280

[Applause]




156

00:08:06,480 --> 00:08:16,879

157

00:08:17,079 --> 00:08:17,620

160

[Music]




161

00:09:21,950 --> 00:09:25,229

so I did end up beat in the rain still




162

00:09:25,429 --> 00:09:28,229

hasn't rained yet I did get sprinkled on




163

00:09:28,429 --> 00:09:31,169

a couple times but nothing real bad so I




164

00:09:31,370 --> 00:09:33,809

did get all the construction portion of




165

00:09:34,009 --> 00:09:36,209

these raised beds done so they are




166

00:09:36,409 --> 00:09:38,219

completely built and I think they turned




167

00:09:38,419 --> 00:09:39,539

out pretty good I think they're looking




168

00:09:39,740 --> 00:09:41,279

pretty good right now so they're pretty




169

00:09:41,480 --> 00:09:42,899

much ready for me to start filling full




170

00:09:43,100 --> 00:09:46,378

of topsoil now there is one thing that's




171

00:09:46,578 --> 00:09:49,979

not perfect about them and and what that




172

00:09:50,179 --> 00:09:52,349

is is when I start building these I




173

00:09:52,549 --> 00:09:55,589

built them on that far side and I start




174

00:09:55,789 --> 00:09:57,269

stair-stepping them down this slope as




175

00:09:57,470 --> 00:09:59,849

it goes downhill this direction and that




176

00:10:00,049 --> 00:10:01,769

far side looks perfect everything just




177

00:10:01,970 --> 00:10:03,959

looks right on that far side but the




178

00:10:04,159 --> 00:10:06,059

problem is is I'm sloped in two




179

00:10:06,259 --> 00:10:07,919

directions I'm sloping downhill this way




180

00:10:08,120 --> 00:10:10,258

but I'm also sloping downhill this




181

00:10:10,458 --> 00:10:12,899

direction so the front side of these




182

00:10:13,100 --> 00:10:14,549

beds this cluster side of the raised bed




183

00:10:14,750 --> 00:10:19,169

is actually the ground is lower so of




184

00:10:19,370 --> 00:10:20,789

course didn't have to dig out as much on




185

00:10:20,990 --> 00:10:22,769

this side what's that ended up causing




186

00:10:22,970 --> 00:10:25,649

as I ended up with a gap under my board




187

00:10:25,850 --> 00:10:30,059

so the this bottom board here on the




188

00:10:30,259 --> 00:10:31,948

front is actually above the ground a




189

00:10:32,149 --> 00:10:34,439

couple inches so I've got a gap on each




190

00:10:34,639 --> 00:10:36,568

one of these raised beds on this




191

00:10:36,769 --> 00:10:40,019

downhill side so it does look a little




192

00:10:40,220 --> 00:10:42,149

choppy on this side doesn't quite look




193

00:10:42,350 --> 00:10:45,299

right so what I'm gonna do to fix that




194

00:10:45,500 --> 00:10:47,159

right now is I'm just I've dug all that




195

00:10:47,360 --> 00:10:49,109

clay soil out and I've got that clay




196

00:10:49,309 --> 00:10:51,479

soil that I've dug out to build these so




197

00:10:51,679 --> 00:10:52,649

I'm going to take some of that soil I'm




198

00:10:52,850 --> 00:10:54,209

going to pack that in around this front




199

00:10:54,409 --> 00:10:56,698

edge and to help cover up all them gaps




200

00:10:56,899 --> 00:10:59,519

and then when I put my potting soil my




201

00:10:59,720 --> 00:11:01,679

topsoil in there you know it won't come




202

00:11:01,879 --> 00:11:03,899

out the bottom and I still isn't gonna




203

00:11:04,100 --> 00:11:05,419

look very good it's gonna look a little




204

00:11:05,620 --> 00:11:08,399

rough I hope in the future I can get




205

00:11:08,600 --> 00:11:10,469

some woodchips and then I'll make




206

00:11:10,669 --> 00:11:12,089

pathways or wood chips and I'll build




207

00:11:12,289 --> 00:11:14,068

those wood chips up you know to three




208

00:11:14,269 --> 00:11:15,929

inches thick of wood chips and then




209

00:11:16,129 --> 00:11:18,328

those wood chips will help cover up all




210

00:11:18,528 --> 00:11:19,889

them gaps and it'll help make everything




211

00:11:20,089 --> 00:11:23,068

look better but for right now I'm just




212

00:11:23,269 --> 00:11:26,008

gonna go ahead take that clay soil that




213

00:11:26,208 --> 00:11:27,990

I've dug out and just pack in the front




214

00:11:28,190 --> 00:11:31,049

side and and I think that'll work for




215

00:11:31,250 --> 00:11:33,049

now




216

00:11:33,250 --> 00:11:35,729

so right now I'm going to go ahead and




217

00:11:35,929 --> 00:11:37,289

I'm going to take some of that topsoil




218

00:11:37,490 --> 00:11:39,149

back there to the pile I'm gonna mix




219

00:11:39,350 --> 00:11:40,949

that with some compost and I'm gonna




220

00:11:41,149 --> 00:11:42,509

start filling these raised beds up I'm




221

00:11:42,710 --> 00:11:45,269

gonna see if I can get them full full of




222

00:11:45,470 --> 00:11:48,439

soil so I can get them planted and then




223

00:11:48,639 --> 00:11:51,479

then you can really see how these these




224

00:11:51,679 --> 00:11:53,069

raised beds turned out you know it just




225

00:11:53,269 --> 00:11:54,959

doesn't doesn't really give it any




226

00:11:55,159 --> 00:11:57,299

justice on how this is really gonna look




227

00:11:57,500 --> 00:11:59,459

until you get some topsoil in there get




228

00:11:59,659 --> 00:12:01,439

some plants in there so I'm gonna go




229

00:12:01,639 --> 00:12:02,849

ahead and see if I can get these filled




230

00:12:03,049 --> 00:12:05,189

with topsoil and then we'll come back




231

00:12:05,389 --> 00:12:07,979

and show you the end result of these




232

00:12:08,179 --> 00:12:10,709

raised beds going down this slope




233

00:12:10,909 --> 00:12:17,999

[Music]




234

00:12:25,289 --> 00:13:24,839

[Music]




235

00:13:25,039 --> 00:13:28,089

so the day I built these raised beds as




236

00:13:28,289 --> 00:13:30,578

soon as I pretty much got complete you




237

00:13:30,778 --> 00:13:33,039

know with the build it ended up just




238

00:13:33,240 --> 00:13:34,748

raining on me that day I wasn't able to




239

00:13:34,948 --> 00:13:37,808

put the topsoil in that day so I will




240

00:13:38,009 --> 00:13:39,998

actually have not been able to get back




241

00:13:40,198 --> 00:13:41,769

to this project I've had so much going




242

00:13:41,970 --> 00:13:43,659

on but I finally got back to it this




243

00:13:43,860 --> 00:13:46,359

week and so I worked on it after work




244

00:13:46,559 --> 00:13:48,248

through the through the week this week




245

00:13:48,448 --> 00:13:50,740

and one night after work I was able to




246

00:13:50,940 --> 00:13:53,289

fill all these up with topsoil using the




247

00:13:53,490 --> 00:13:55,688

tractor and then a couple nights after




248

00:13:55,889 --> 00:13:57,339

that you know took a couple more nights




249

00:13:57,539 --> 00:14:00,549

after work to be able to amend the soil




250

00:14:00,750 --> 00:14:03,490

in the beds add peat moss and compost to




251

00:14:03,690 --> 00:14:04,899

them and get that all mixed up and to




252

00:14:05,100 --> 00:14:06,698

get all these planted so now I've got




253

00:14:06,899 --> 00:14:09,669

all these filled with soil and they're




254

00:14:09,870 --> 00:14:11,618

all planted now so they're all a hundred




255

00:14:11,818 --> 00:14:14,709

percent complete and so it's a really




256

00:14:14,909 --> 00:14:16,209

interesting you know the whole process




257

00:14:16,409 --> 00:14:18,099

of trying to to build these raised beds




258

00:14:18,299 --> 00:14:20,889

I was trying to build them level and but




259

00:14:21,089 --> 00:14:22,659

yet I needed to you know I needed to




260

00:14:22,860 --> 00:14:24,549

take them and and build them down this




261

00:14:24,750 --> 00:14:26,919

hill and stair-step them down the slope




262

00:14:27,120 --> 00:14:28,059

of this hill so it's kind of an




263

00:14:28,259 --> 00:14:30,068

interesting process I think it turned




264

00:14:30,269 --> 00:14:33,068

out fairly good but let's go ahead and




265

00:14:33,269 --> 00:14:34,118

have a look at it and see how they




266

00:14:34,318 --> 00:14:38,078

turned out so here's the raised beds




267

00:14:38,278 --> 00:14:40,479

from the bottom of the hill and we're




268

00:14:40,679 --> 00:14:43,389

kind of looking up the hill so you can




269

00:14:43,589 --> 00:14:45,359

kind of see how they step up the hill




270

00:14:45,559 --> 00:14:48,399

now the way this kind of worked out is




271

00:14:48,600 --> 00:14:51,099

as you work your way down the hill I




272

00:14:51,299 --> 00:14:53,948

built these raised beds with with two




273

00:14:54,149 --> 00:14:57,479

two by sixes tall so on the uphill side




274

00:14:57,679 --> 00:15:00,578

you end up with one board about showing




275

00:15:00,778 --> 00:15:02,919

right there and then by the time you go




276

00:15:03,120 --> 00:15:05,738

down the slope you end up with both two




277

00:15:05,938 --> 00:15:08,589

by sixes exposed and then you go to the




278

00:15:08,789 --> 00:15:10,328

next raised bed and it's the same thing




279

00:15:10,528 --> 00:15:12,789

one board exposed and then as you go




280

00:15:12,990 --> 00:15:16,238

down the raised bed both boards you know




281

00:15:16,438 --> 00:15:18,099

end up showing and that's just kind of




282

00:15:18,299 --> 00:15:19,779

how it ended up working as you went down




283

00:15:19,980 --> 00:15:23,019

the hill now this this raised bed here




284

00:15:23,220 --> 00:15:25,929

at the end of the hill it had slope in




285

00:15:26,129 --> 00:15:28,029

two directions so it's losing it's going




286

00:15:28,230 --> 00:15:29,709

downhill this direction but it's




287

00:15:29,909 --> 00:15:31,599

so going downhill in that direction so




288

00:15:31,799 --> 00:15:33,789

if you notice we have one board showing




289

00:15:33,990 --> 00:15:37,089

here and then it goes to two boards and




290

00:15:37,289 --> 00:15:39,459

then over here it's two boards and then




291

00:15:39,659 --> 00:15:42,129

as it goes downhill it ends up being




292

00:15:42,330 --> 00:15:44,289

three boards so this raised bed and this




293

00:15:44,490 --> 00:15:46,329

this corner here ends up getting a




294

00:15:46,529 --> 00:15:49,240

little bit a little bit deeper and used




295

00:15:49,440 --> 00:15:51,639

a little bit more lumber to do this




296

00:15:51,840 --> 00:15:54,399

raised bed because it was you know it is




297

00:15:54,600 --> 00:15:56,649

affected by slope in actually two




298

00:15:56,850 --> 00:15:58,000

different directions since this is a




299

00:15:58,200 --> 00:16:01,719

corner raised bed here now this will




300

00:16:01,919 --> 00:16:03,009

even back out when we build our next




301

00:16:03,210 --> 00:16:04,329

raised bed we'll just start out with two




302

00:16:04,529 --> 00:16:06,279

boards again and we'll just work our way




303

00:16:06,480 --> 00:16:08,079

down that hill and it'll kind of even




304

00:16:08,279 --> 00:16:11,500

back out but that was kind of the only




305

00:16:11,700 --> 00:16:13,299

difference here was this the corner bed




306

00:16:13,500 --> 00:16:15,789

was affected by the slope in two




307

00:16:15,990 --> 00:16:18,699

directions and it affected it a little




308

00:16:18,899 --> 00:16:21,729

bit more but I think as we walk up the




309

00:16:21,929 --> 00:16:23,529

hill here we'll look at these raised




310

00:16:23,730 --> 00:16:26,259

beds I think they turned out




311

00:16:26,460 --> 00:16:29,879

I think they've turned out pretty good




312

00:16:30,080 --> 00:16:32,409

they're not all perfectly nice and neat




313

00:16:32,610 --> 00:16:35,139

my posts my posts ended up being about




314

00:16:35,340 --> 00:16:38,049

eight feet apart so by the time and I've




315

00:16:38,250 --> 00:16:40,029

got these nice and finished here on the




316

00:16:40,230 --> 00:16:42,819

ends they basically end at the end of




317

00:16:43,019 --> 00:16:44,829

the post and that's where the gates




318

00:16:45,029 --> 00:16:45,789

gonna be so that's a little more




319

00:16:45,990 --> 00:16:48,279

finished but when we ended here at this




320

00:16:48,480 --> 00:16:49,839

post you can see I'm pretty much out of




321

00:16:50,039 --> 00:16:52,359

board it pretty much it pretty much ends




322

00:16:52,559 --> 00:16:54,849

in the center of the board and so it's




323

00:16:55,049 --> 00:16:57,429

not quite as neat of a corner right




324

00:16:57,629 --> 00:16:57,879

there




325

00:16:58,080 --> 00:17:01,389

at that post so I mean it's not perfect




326

00:17:01,590 --> 00:17:04,149

but you know that's just something to




327

00:17:04,349 --> 00:17:06,339

overlook so it's it's not exactly a




328

00:17:06,539 --> 00:17:07,779

hundred percent perfect it looks better




329

00:17:07,980 --> 00:17:11,069

from the other side in that aspect but




330

00:17:11,269 --> 00:17:13,269

that's probably the only thing I'll knit




331

00:17:13,470 --> 00:17:15,309

pick other than that I think it you know




332

00:17:15,509 --> 00:17:17,500

as it goes up this hill you know it's




333

00:17:17,700 --> 00:17:19,960

looking pretty good so I think I'm




334

00:17:20,160 --> 00:17:21,849

pretty happy with the way it it's turned




335

00:17:22,049 --> 00:17:25,930

out once I get a fence around here and




336

00:17:26,130 --> 00:17:27,819

everything it'll totally take a whole




337

00:17:28,019 --> 00:17:31,329

nother look to it but let's have a look




338

00:17:31,529 --> 00:17:35,980

at it as we look down the hill here so




339

00:17:36,180 --> 00:17:37,329

you can see I think I think when you




340

00:17:37,529 --> 00:17:38,859

look down the hill I think you kind of




341

00:17:39,059 --> 00:17:41,519

get a little bit more of a idea of how




342

00:17:41,720 --> 00:17:43,569

far this garden kind




343

00:17:43,769 --> 00:17:45,279

slopes down the hill you know it's just




344

00:17:45,480 --> 00:17:47,409

it's just kind of going downhill here




345

00:17:47,609 --> 00:17:48,490

and you see it a little bit better I




346

00:17:48,690 --> 00:17:50,710

think from the top so we'll go ahead




347

00:17:50,910 --> 00:17:54,819

take a look from the inside and so the




348

00:17:55,019 --> 00:17:57,099

inside is not a not a hundred percent




349

00:17:57,299 --> 00:18:01,869

perfect there's a few gaps showing which




350

00:18:02,069 --> 00:18:03,909

the plastic is kind of hiding it but you




351

00:18:04,109 --> 00:18:06,119

can see some some gaps are showing here




352

00:18:06,319 --> 00:18:09,369

on some of these beds I think this one




353

00:18:09,569 --> 00:18:11,710

down here I'll show it real well so you




354

00:18:11,910 --> 00:18:13,109

can kind of see there's kind of a gap




355

00:18:13,309 --> 00:18:15,339

here at the bottom of that raised beds




356

00:18:15,539 --> 00:18:18,250

the downhill side ends up having a




357

00:18:18,450 --> 00:18:20,259

little bit of a gap on it so it's not a




358

00:18:20,460 --> 00:18:21,940

hundred percent perfect hopefully we'll




359

00:18:22,140 --> 00:18:23,859

get some we'll get some wood chips I'm




360

00:18:24,059 --> 00:18:25,240

really trying to get some wood chips




361

00:18:25,440 --> 00:18:27,430

we'll get some wood chips and start




362

00:18:27,630 --> 00:18:30,190

building this area up for walkways it'll




363

00:18:30,390 --> 00:18:32,409

cover up all the gaps and everything




364

00:18:32,609 --> 00:18:35,109

will look pretty good so I know




365

00:18:35,309 --> 00:18:36,849

everything don't look exactly perfect




366

00:18:37,049 --> 00:18:38,079

right now because I've got this black




367

00:18:38,279 --> 00:18:40,359

plastic down so this black plastic is




368

00:18:40,559 --> 00:18:43,149

just to kill all the grass in this area




369

00:18:43,349 --> 00:18:44,950

so I can go ahead add more raised beds




370

00:18:45,150 --> 00:18:47,230

so I can plant more plants in this area




371

00:18:47,430 --> 00:18:50,889

so it's it's not picturesque at the




372

00:18:51,089 --> 00:18:54,369

moment but I think if we just focus on




373

00:18:54,569 --> 00:18:55,990

the actual raised beds




374

00:18:56,190 --> 00:18:57,970

I think these raised beds are turning




375

00:18:58,170 --> 00:19:00,970

out fairly good so far now I know that




376

00:19:01,170 --> 00:19:04,119

all the posts aren't are a little uneven




377

00:19:04,319 --> 00:19:05,680

the post don't look a hundred percent




378

00:19:05,880 --> 00:19:08,440

right so the idea on the post when we




379

00:19:08,640 --> 00:19:10,930

put our fence up we will cut all those




380

00:19:11,130 --> 00:19:12,879

posts off to whatever the correct height




381

00:19:13,079 --> 00:19:15,369

this and then we're also on the top of




382

00:19:15,569 --> 00:19:16,659

those posts it's going to be hard to




383

00:19:16,859 --> 00:19:18,129

explore but on the top of the post we're




384

00:19:18,329 --> 00:19:20,289

gonna probably put two by four across




385

00:19:20,490 --> 00:19:23,349

the top and so you'll have like a border




386

00:19:23,549 --> 00:19:24,879

along the top of that fence they'll kind




387

00:19:25,079 --> 00:19:27,069

of finish the top of the fence when we




388

00:19:27,269 --> 00:19:28,480

build the fence but I think the fence




389

00:19:28,680 --> 00:19:30,759

will be a little bit farther down the




390

00:19:30,960 --> 00:19:32,379

road it'll be one of the last things we




391

00:19:32,579 --> 00:19:36,690

probably do on this raised bed garden so




392

00:19:36,890 --> 00:19:38,950

anyway I pretty much if you watch my




393

00:19:39,150 --> 00:19:41,919

first raised bed garden video when I




394

00:19:42,119 --> 00:19:43,419

built the first raised beds these are




395

00:19:43,619 --> 00:19:47,109

pretty much built exactly the same they




396

00:19:47,309 --> 00:19:50,169

do have like the little boards in the




397

00:19:50,369 --> 00:19:52,960

middle to help attach you know they




398

00:19:53,160 --> 00:19:56,139

these boards right here they help attach




399

00:19:56,339 --> 00:19:58,599

those two together kind of help




400

00:19:58,799 --> 00:20:00,819

you know stay the same and stay together




401

00:20:01,019 --> 00:20:04,059

and stay even and of course we got




402

00:20:04,259 --> 00:20:06,009

boards like that on in all the corners




403

00:20:06,210 --> 00:20:08,440

and so if you look at that very first




404

00:20:08,640 --> 00:20:10,269

raised bed video these are pretty much




405

00:20:10,470 --> 00:20:13,930

built the same except every bed goes




406

00:20:14,130 --> 00:20:15,549

down a little bit and goes down the hill




407

00:20:15,750 --> 00:20:17,409

you know it just steps down so I think




408

00:20:17,609 --> 00:20:21,490

it turned out pretty good so I think




409

00:20:21,690 --> 00:20:23,680

that the next video that I'm gonna make




410

00:20:23,880 --> 00:20:27,009

in this instant garden area I think it's




411

00:20:27,210 --> 00:20:29,230

gonna be probably the earth garden




412

00:20:29,430 --> 00:20:31,450

portion of course I'm trying to kill




413

00:20:31,650 --> 00:20:33,309

this off so that I can grow plants in




414

00:20:33,509 --> 00:20:35,349

the middle of this area I may I'm




415

00:20:35,549 --> 00:20:36,700

probably set to end up renting a tiller




416

00:20:36,900 --> 00:20:38,079

or something so I can get this all




417

00:20:38,279 --> 00:20:40,480

broken up and planted but I've got some




418

00:20:40,680 --> 00:20:43,180

of that what market gardeners use that




419

00:20:43,380 --> 00:20:44,919

weed barrier that weed fabric that they




420

00:20:45,119 --> 00:20:47,470

use we're gonna roll that out and try to




421

00:20:47,670 --> 00:20:49,089

make some rows that'll help keep the




422

00:20:49,289 --> 00:20:51,129

weeds down so less weeding and then




423

00:20:51,329 --> 00:20:53,139

we're gonna get all these peppers




424

00:20:53,339 --> 00:20:55,059

tomatoes artichokes get all that planted




425

00:20:55,259 --> 00:20:57,609

we've got some zucchini to plant




426

00:20:57,809 --> 00:21:00,220

eggplant the plant sweet corn to plant




427

00:21:00,420 --> 00:21:01,990

we got a lot of things that we want to




428

00:21:02,190 --> 00:21:03,399

plant here in the middle is going to be




429

00:21:03,599 --> 00:21:04,659

an earth garden so we got a lot of stuff




430

00:21:04,859 --> 00:21:05,859

we're going to plant directly in the




431

00:21:06,059 --> 00:21:08,769

ground may end up taking some of this




432

00:21:08,970 --> 00:21:12,460

pile of extra soil may take that and try




433

00:21:12,660 --> 00:21:14,409

to spread that out on the ground and try




434

00:21:14,609 --> 00:21:16,960

to till that in to try to break up some




435

00:21:17,160 --> 00:21:18,190

of this clay a little bit this is all




436

00:21:18,390 --> 00:21:20,349

clay soil it's not very very good so I




437

00:21:20,549 --> 00:21:21,549

think through the years it'll take a




438

00:21:21,750 --> 00:21:23,829

while but if we can add stuff to it and




439

00:21:24,029 --> 00:21:26,109

I'm into it it'll end up being a good




440

00:21:26,309 --> 00:21:30,369

garden area over time but that's what we




441

00:21:30,569 --> 00:21:32,259

got planned I think after that you know




442

00:21:32,460 --> 00:21:34,240

when the plants are planting and you




443

00:21:34,440 --> 00:21:35,529

know are growing good and we're done




444

00:21:35,730 --> 00:21:37,960

planting plants we'll work on some




445

00:21:38,160 --> 00:21:39,519

compost bins so I think I want to make




446

00:21:39,720 --> 00:21:41,799

like a three compost bin system we want




447

00:21:42,000 --> 00:21:43,269

to put a tool shed I think over in that




448

00:21:43,470 --> 00:21:45,129

corner over there just to be able to




449

00:21:45,329 --> 00:21:47,649

hold all our tools and fertilizers you




450

00:21:47,849 --> 00:21:49,210

know stuff like that you know our




451

00:21:49,410 --> 00:21:53,440

amendments so what else in the fall in




452

00:21:53,640 --> 00:21:54,970

the fall I want to like make some cold




453

00:21:55,170 --> 00:21:57,909

frames on cold frames on the south side




454

00:21:58,109 --> 00:21:59,529

of the garden to the south side that




455

00:21:59,730 --> 00:22:01,869

faces the Sun in the wintertime I'd like




456

00:22:02,069 --> 00:22:04,029

to make some cold frames so that we




457

00:22:04,230 --> 00:22:06,639

actually can try to see how far we can




458

00:22:06,839 --> 00:22:08,680

grow plants into the wintertime see if




459

00:22:08,880 --> 00:22:11,240

we can have some fall crops




460

00:22:11,440 --> 00:22:12,889

and maybe grow some lettuce and stuff




461

00:22:13,089 --> 00:22:17,000

like that latent latent to the year so




462

00:22:17,200 --> 00:22:18,438

they probably you know when all that's




463

00:22:18,638 --> 00:22:19,969

done we'll probably finally look at




464

00:22:20,169 --> 00:22:22,250

fencing trying to get our fencing




465

00:22:22,450 --> 00:22:23,750

complete around this garden so it's




466

00:22:23,950 --> 00:22:24,769

gonna take a long time to get it done




467

00:22:24,970 --> 00:22:27,558

it'll probably take you know about a




468

00:22:27,759 --> 00:22:28,519

year before it's a hundred percent




469

00:22:28,720 --> 00:22:30,588

complete but I think it'll turn out




470

00:22:30,788 --> 00:22:31,969

great when it's done so if you're




471

00:22:32,169 --> 00:22:34,098

interested in this trying to make this




472

00:22:34,298 --> 00:22:36,409

big fenced in garden area you know hit




473

00:22:36,609 --> 00:22:39,799

subscribe pay you know and just will




474

00:22:40,000 --> 00:22:41,149

slowly post some videos throughout the




475

00:22:41,349 --> 00:22:44,299

year well also we have a Facebook page I




476

00:22:44,500 --> 00:22:45,588

never really say this on there but we




477

00:22:45,788 --> 00:22:48,229

have a Facebook page and if you want to




478

00:22:48,429 --> 00:22:50,240

look that up we do post some extra




479

00:22:50,440 --> 00:22:52,608

content on there usually some 30 seconds




480

00:22:52,808 --> 00:22:54,919

1 minute video clips of some extra stuff




481

00:22:55,119 --> 00:22:57,198

sometimes we may post a video clip of an




482

00:22:57,398 --> 00:23:00,369

upcoming video but we do post different




483

00:23:00,569 --> 00:23:02,539

additional content on their Facebook

We are building a Fenced in Garden area with raised beds around the perimeter. The location we are building our garden is next to our house, but it is not level ground and is sloping downhill away from our house and toward our pond. So as we are building our raised beds, they appear to stair step down the hill.

4

00:00:42,710 --> 00:00:45,459

today I'm back out here on the on our




5

00:00:45,659 --> 00:00:47,679

fenced in garden project today we're




6

00:00:47,880 --> 00:00:49,509

going to be continuing our raised beds




7

00:00:49,710 --> 00:00:51,549

we're gonna continue them down the hill




8

00:00:51,750 --> 00:00:54,909

on this side and this is on a slope




9

00:00:55,109 --> 00:00:58,269

we've got about a 40 inch change in




10

00:00:58,469 --> 00:01:01,538

elevation as we go down this hill so as




11

00:01:01,738 --> 00:01:03,428

we build these raised beds each one of




12

00:01:03,628 --> 00:01:04,840

these raised beds is probably gonna step




13

00:01:05,040 --> 00:01:07,929

down about you know six inches or so and




14

00:01:08,129 --> 00:01:09,459

then go to the next one will step down




15

00:01:09,659 --> 00:01:11,679

about six inches and go across




16

00:01:11,879 --> 00:01:13,989

so each raised bed will be you know




17

00:01:14,189 --> 00:01:16,359

built level and then we'll just have to




18

00:01:16,560 --> 00:01:18,969

drop down and start building the next




19

00:01:19,170 --> 00:01:21,308

raised bed that's kind of the way we'll




20

00:01:21,509 --> 00:01:22,989

stair-step the raised beds down this




21

00:01:23,189 --> 00:01:26,980

hill so these two posts right here you




22

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:28,418

can see are closer together that's where




23

00:01:28,618 --> 00:01:31,390

we'll have one of the gate to enter and




24

00:01:31,590 --> 00:01:33,909

exit the the garden area and it's going




25

00:01:34,109 --> 00:01:35,649

to lead out to this water hydrant back




26

00:01:35,849 --> 00:01:37,119

here and it'll also lead out to the




27

00:01:37,319 --> 00:01:39,879

orchard and so the way I'll probably




28

00:01:40,079 --> 00:01:41,259

build this is I'll probably start on




29

00:01:41,459 --> 00:01:43,359

this side and we're going to work our




30

00:01:43,560 --> 00:01:45,609

way down this hill till we get to the




31

00:01:45,810 --> 00:01:47,198

gate and that's going to be kind of an




32

00:01:47,399 --> 00:01:49,929

end point and we'll finish these three




33

00:01:50,129 --> 00:01:52,390

raised beds first and then we'll




34

00:01:52,590 --> 00:01:54,519

probably actually go down here to the




35

00:01:54,719 --> 00:01:56,649

corner we'll build this corner raised




36

00:01:56,849 --> 00:01:58,868

bed and then we'll work our way back up




37

00:01:59,069 --> 00:02:01,689

to the gate here and then that will




38

00:02:01,890 --> 00:02:05,649

finish out that whole side it has rained




39

00:02:05,849 --> 00:02:07,689

it seems like almost every day around




40

00:02:07,890 --> 00:02:10,539

here really hard to keep moving on these




41

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:13,240

projects so but last weekend I was able




42

00:02:13,439 --> 00:02:15,009

to get out here and I was able to set




43

00:02:15,209 --> 00:02:16,960

all these posts along this side I got




44

00:02:17,159 --> 00:02:19,660

them set in concrete so they've been set




45

00:02:19,860 --> 00:02:23,350

now for a week so these are all good the




46

00:02:23,550 --> 00:02:24,850

concrete's all cured it's all ready to




47

00:02:25,050 --> 00:02:26,950

go so we can start building these raised




48

00:02:27,150 --> 00:02:30,939

beds today so I did end up ordering a




49

00:02:31,139 --> 00:02:33,730

dump truck load full of topsoil so this




50

00:02:33,930 --> 00:02:35,590

is probably around 15 tons worth of




51

00:02:35,789 --> 00:02:37,868

topsoil this was dropped off here a few




52

00:02:38,068 --> 00:02:40,480

days ago and so the plan is that I'm




53

00:02:40,680 --> 00:02:42,399

gonna use this topsoil to fill the




54

00:02:42,598 --> 00:02:44,649

raised beds up so I'll just take the




55

00:02:44,848 --> 00:02:46,840

topsoil I'll mix that with some compost




56

00:02:47,039 --> 00:02:48,969

maybe some peat moss or some other




57

00:02:49,169 --> 00:02:51,489

organic material and you know we'll mix




58

00:02:51,688 --> 00:02:53,739

that up and fill the raised beds with it




59

00:02:53,938 --> 00:02:56,050

this will be way cheaper way




60

00:02:56,250 --> 00:02:57,580

to be able to fill up these raised beds




61

00:02:57,780 --> 00:03:00,370

and hopefully I got a lot of raised beds




62

00:03:00,569 --> 00:03:01,870

on this project by the time I'm done




63

00:03:02,069 --> 00:03:03,310

there's gonna be raised beds going all




64

00:03:03,509 --> 00:03:05,080

the way around so hopefully that's




65

00:03:05,280 --> 00:03:09,169

enough dirt to be able throw them all up




66

00:03:09,469 --> 00:03:11,439

so first thing this morning I actually




67

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,890

got out here and I weeded the orchard so




68

00:03:15,090 --> 00:03:16,900

this orchard had not the first time I we




69

00:03:17,099 --> 00:03:19,980

did it you know we did it all year and




70

00:03:20,180 --> 00:03:23,200

so today the orchard actually looks kind




71

00:03:23,400 --> 00:03:24,790

of groomed everything's looking all nice




72

00:03:24,990 --> 00:03:27,820

all the trees are got all their leaves




73

00:03:28,020 --> 00:03:31,030

on them and we've got we've got our




74

00:03:31,229 --> 00:03:32,439

strawberries here look at all the blooms




75

00:03:32,639 --> 00:03:34,150

on these strawberries we're about to




76

00:03:34,349 --> 00:03:35,800

have a ton of strawberries here pre soon




77

00:03:36,000 --> 00:03:38,680

but but the orchards looking pretty good




78

00:03:38,879 --> 00:03:40,330

I think once we get done with this




79

00:03:40,530 --> 00:03:41,410

garden area here




80

00:03:41,610 --> 00:03:43,390

it'll be really nice to be able have all




81

00:03:43,590 --> 00:03:45,520

these fruit and these berries and then




82

00:03:45,719 --> 00:03:46,840

all the vegetables and it'll be all




83

00:03:47,039 --> 00:03:48,189

right next to the house I think this is




84

00:03:48,389 --> 00:03:50,020

gonna turn out to be a pretty good setup




85

00:03:50,219 --> 00:03:52,870

when we're done so let's go ahead see if




86

00:03:53,069 --> 00:03:54,710

we get these raised vegetables




87

00:03:54,909 --> 00:04:08,759

[Music]




88

00:04:08,959 --> 00:04:11,099

so I dug this out for this first board




89

00:04:11,299 --> 00:04:12,480

so it could sit in there level




90

00:04:12,680 --> 00:04:14,849

this board is sitting basically on the




91

00:04:15,049 --> 00:04:17,069

grass on this side but for it to sit




92

00:04:17,269 --> 00:04:19,680

level I had to dig it out so it into the




93

00:04:19,879 --> 00:04:21,270

ground over here so could sit in the




94

00:04:21,470 --> 00:04:23,610

ground and you can see how deep in the




95

00:04:23,810 --> 00:04:25,559

ground that is it's about six inches




96

00:04:25,759 --> 00:04:28,319

down in the ground for that to be able




97

00:04:28,519 --> 00:04:31,050

to sit level across there so what I'm




98

00:04:31,250 --> 00:04:33,210

going to do now I'm gonna go ahead I'm




99

00:04:33,410 --> 00:04:35,300

going to screw the board to this post




100

00:04:35,500 --> 00:04:37,379

I'm gonna double check that it's still




101

00:04:37,579 --> 00:04:39,240

level and then I'll attach it to this




102

00:04:39,439 --> 00:04:41,338

post here and then I'll add my second




103

00:04:41,538 --> 00:04:43,050

board on top of here and then I'm just




104

00:04:43,250 --> 00:04:44,968

gonna go ahead and continue down with




105

00:04:45,168 --> 00:04:48,420

that same method all the way down one




106

00:04:48,620 --> 00:04:49,920

thing I'd like to point out real quick




107

00:04:50,120 --> 00:04:53,040

is that when you when I filled this up




108

00:04:53,240 --> 00:04:56,160

with concrete I didn't fill it all the




109

00:04:56,360 --> 00:04:58,528

way to the top with concrete you can see




110

00:04:58,728 --> 00:05:01,889

the concrete's like this deep down the




111

00:05:02,089 --> 00:05:03,329

reason I did that is because I knew I




112

00:05:03,529 --> 00:05:04,920

was gonna have to dig down about six




113

00:05:05,120 --> 00:05:07,410

inches on this side and attach a board




114

00:05:07,610 --> 00:05:09,838

so if you're working down a hill like




115

00:05:10,038 --> 00:05:11,460

this you don't want to fill these




116

00:05:11,660 --> 00:05:13,920

completely full of concrete because you




117

00:05:14,120 --> 00:05:16,680

will be you know digging down one side




118

00:05:16,879 --> 00:05:18,600

and attaching a board or something like




119

00:05:18,800 --> 00:05:22,379

that so so I've tried my best to not




120

00:05:22,579 --> 00:05:24,959

fill these full of concrete there will




121

00:05:25,158 --> 00:05:26,759

be a couple that I may have a little bit




122

00:05:26,959 --> 00:05:28,620

full and may get in the way but if




123

00:05:28,819 --> 00:05:30,449

you're doing this down a slope like this




124

00:05:30,649 --> 00:05:32,670

I mean if this is perfectly level you




125

00:05:32,870 --> 00:05:34,319

can pretty much fill those to the top




126

00:05:34,519 --> 00:05:35,819

but since it's not and we're going




127

00:05:36,019 --> 00:05:38,009

downhill it's a good idea to not fill




128

00:05:38,209 --> 00:05:40,680

them up all the way and so don't doesn't




129

00:05:40,879 --> 00:05:43,079

get in your way later I'm gonna go ahead




130

00:05:43,279 --> 00:05:44,639

I'm basically gonna go ahead and




131

00:05:44,839 --> 00:05:47,028

continue this section right here and




132

00:05:47,228 --> 00:05:49,290

hopefully when we come back I'll have it




133

00:05:49,490 --> 00:05:50,629

done




134

00:05:50,829 --> 00:06:17,930

[Music]




135

00:06:18,129 --> 00:06:19,400

[Applause]




136

00:06:19,600 --> 00:06:29,028

137

00:06:31,230 --> 00:06:40,920

[Music]




138

00:06:41,120 --> 00:06:43,720

so the concrete in this post actually




139

00:06:43,920 --> 00:06:45,910

poured too high so right down here this




140

00:06:46,110 --> 00:06:48,639

is the level that I need my board to be




141

00:06:48,839 --> 00:06:50,350

but you can see my concrete's probably




142

00:06:50,550 --> 00:06:52,030

at least an extra two inches taller than




143

00:06:52,230 --> 00:06:54,610

that so I'm going to take a masonry




144

00:06:54,810 --> 00:06:56,560

hammer I'm going to try to chip this one




145

00:06:56,759 --> 00:06:59,199

side away here and hopefully I can just




146

00:06:59,399 --> 00:07:01,389

take the top of this side off so that I




147

00:07:01,589 --> 00:07:03,430

can slide that board in there and attach




148

00:07:03,629 --> 00:07:05,379

it to that side of the post so I don't




149

00:07:05,579 --> 00:07:06,670

want to totally destroy all this




150

00:07:06,870 --> 00:07:08,110

concrete I just want to take off a




151

00:07:08,310 --> 00:07:10,740

little section of it




152

00:07:10,939 --> 00:07:16,060

[Music]




153

00:07:16,259 --> 00:07:16,629

[Applause]




154

00:07:16,829 --> 00:08:04,850

155

00:08:05,050 --> 00:08:06,280

156

160

[Music]




161

00:09:21,950 --> 00:09:25,229

so I did end up beat in the rain still




162

00:09:25,429 --> 00:09:28,229

hasn't rained yet I did get sprinkled on




163

00:09:28,429 --> 00:09:31,169

a couple times but nothing real bad so I




164

00:09:31,370 --> 00:09:33,809

did get all the construction portion of




165

00:09:34,009 --> 00:09:36,209

these raised beds done so they are




166

00:09:36,409 --> 00:09:38,219

completely built and I think they turned




167

00:09:38,419 --> 00:09:39,539

out pretty good I think they're looking




168

00:09:39,740 --> 00:09:41,279

pretty good right now so they're pretty




169

00:09:41,480 --> 00:09:42,899

much ready for me to start filling full




170

00:09:43,100 --> 00:09:46,378

of topsoil now there is one thing that's




171

00:09:46,578 --> 00:09:49,979

not perfect about them and and what that




172

00:09:50,179 --> 00:09:52,349

is is when I start building these I




173

00:09:52,549 --> 00:09:55,589

built them on that far side and I start




174

00:09:55,789 --> 00:09:57,269

stair-stepping them down this slope as




175

00:09:57,470 --> 00:09:59,849

it goes downhill this direction and that




176

00:10:00,049 --> 00:10:01,769

far side looks perfect everything just




177

00:10:01,970 --> 00:10:03,959

looks right on that far side but the




178

00:10:04,159 --> 00:10:06,059

problem is is I'm sloped in two




179

00:10:06,259 --> 00:10:07,919

directions I'm sloping downhill this way




180

00:10:08,120 --> 00:10:10,258

but I'm also sloping downhill this




181

00:10:10,458 --> 00:10:12,899

direction so the front side of these




182

00:10:13,100 --> 00:10:14,549

beds this cluster side of the raised bed




183

00:10:14,750 --> 00:10:19,169

is actually the ground is lower so of




184

00:10:19,370 --> 00:10:20,789

course didn't have to dig out as much on




185

00:10:20,990 --> 00:10:22,769

this side what's that ended up causing




186

00:10:22,970 --> 00:10:25,649

as I ended up with a gap under my board




187

00:10:25,850 --> 00:10:30,059

so the this bottom board here on the




188

00:10:30,259 --> 00:10:31,948

front is actually above the ground a




189

00:10:32,149 --> 00:10:34,439

couple inches so I've got a gap on each




190

00:10:34,639 --> 00:10:36,568

one of these raised beds on this




191

00:10:36,769 --> 00:10:40,019

downhill side so it does look a little




192

00:10:40,220 --> 00:10:42,149

choppy on this side doesn't quite look




193

00:10:42,350 --> 00:10:45,299

right so what I'm gonna do to fix that




194

00:10:45,500 --> 00:10:47,159

right now is I'm just I've dug all that




195

00:10:47,360 --> 00:10:49,109

clay soil out and I've got that clay




196

00:10:49,309 --> 00:10:51,479

soil that I've dug out to build these so




197

00:10:51,679 --> 00:10:52,649

I'm going to take some of that soil I'm




198

00:10:52,850 --> 00:10:54,209

going to pack that in around this front




199

00:10:54,409 --> 00:10:56,698

edge and to help cover up all them gaps




200

00:10:56,899 --> 00:10:59,519

and then when I put my potting soil my




201

00:10:59,720 --> 00:11:01,679

topsoil in there you know it won't come




202

00:11:01,879 --> 00:11:03,899

out the bottom and I still isn't gonna




203

00:11:04,100 --> 00:11:05,419

look very good it's gonna look a little




204

00:11:05,620 --> 00:11:08,399

rough I hope in the future I can get




205

00:11:08,600 --> 00:11:10,469

some woodchips and then I'll make




206

00:11:10,669 --> 00:11:12,089

pathways or wood chips and I'll build




207

00:11:12,289 --> 00:11:14,068

those wood chips up you know to three




208

00:11:14,269 --> 00:11:15,929

inches thick of wood chips and then




209

00:11:16,129 --> 00:11:18,328

those wood chips will help cover up all




210

00:11:18,528 --> 00:11:19,889

them gaps and it'll help make everything




211

00:11:20,089 --> 00:11:23,068

look better but for right now I'm just




212

00:11:23,269 --> 00:11:26,008

gonna go ahead take that clay soil that




213

00:11:26,208 --> 00:11:27,990

I've dug out and just pack in the front




214

00:11:28,190 --> 00:11:31,049

side and and I think that'll work for




215

00:11:31,250 --> 00:11:33,049

now




216

00:11:33,250 --> 00:11:35,729

so right now I'm going to go ahead and




217

00:11:35,929 --> 00:11:37,289

I'm going to take some of that topsoil




218

00:11:37,490 --> 00:11:39,149

back there to the pile I'm gonna mix




219

00:11:39,350 --> 00:11:40,949

that with some compost and I'm gonna




220

00:11:41,149 --> 00:11:42,509

start filling these raised beds up I'm




221

00:11:42,710 --> 00:11:45,269

gonna see if I can get them full full of




222

00:11:45,470 --> 00:11:48,439

soil so I can get them planted and then




223

00:11:48,639 --> 00:11:51,479

then you can really see how these these




224

00:11:51,679 --> 00:11:53,069

raised beds turned out you know it just




225

00:11:53,269 --> 00:11:54,959

doesn't doesn't really give it any




226

00:11:55,159 --> 00:11:57,299

justice on how this is really gonna look




227

00:11:57,500 --> 00:11:59,459

until you get some topsoil in there get




228

00:11:59,659 --> 00:12:01,439

some plants in there so I'm gonna go




229

00:12:01,639 --> 00:12:02,849

ahead and see if I can get these filled




230

00:12:03,049 --> 00:12:05,189

with topsoil and then we'll come back




231

00:12:05,389 --> 00:12:07,979

and show you the end result of these




232

00:12:08,179 --> 00:12:10,709

raised beds going down this slope




233

00:12:10,909 --> 00:12:17,999

[Music]




234

00:12:25,289 --> 00:13:24,839

[Music]




235

00:13:25,039 --> 00:13:28,089

so the day I built these raised beds as




236

00:13:28,289 --> 00:13:30,578

soon as I pretty much got complete you




237

00:13:30,778 --> 00:13:33,039

know with the build it ended up just




238

00:13:33,240 --> 00:13:34,748

raining on me that day I wasn't able to




239

00:13:34,948 --> 00:13:37,808

put the topsoil in that day so I will




240

00:13:38,009 --> 00:13:39,998

actually have not been able to get back




241

00:13:40,198 --> 00:13:41,769

to this project I've had so much going




242

00:13:41,970 --> 00:13:43,659

on but I finally got back to it this




243

00:13:43,860 --> 00:13:46,359

week and so I worked on it after work




244

00:13:46,559 --> 00:13:48,248

through the through the week this week




245

00:13:48,448 --> 00:13:50,740

and one night after work I was able to




246

00:13:50,940 --> 00:13:53,289

fill all these up with topsoil using the




247

00:13:53,490 --> 00:13:55,688

tractor and then a couple nights after




248

00:13:55,889 --> 00:13:57,339

that you know took a couple more nights




249

00:13:57,539 --> 00:14:00,549

after work to be able to amend the soil




250

00:14:00,750 --> 00:14:03,490

in the beds add peat moss and compost to




251

00:14:03,690 --> 00:14:04,899

them and get that all mixed up and to




252

00:14:05,100 --> 00:14:06,698

get all these planted so now I've got




253

00:14:06,899 --> 00:14:09,669

all these filled with soil and they're




254

00:14:09,870 --> 00:14:11,618

all planted now so they're all a hundred




255

00:14:11,818 --> 00:14:14,709

percent complete and so it's a really




256

00:14:14,909 --> 00:14:16,209

interesting you know the whole process




257

00:14:16,409 --> 00:14:18,099

of trying to to build these raised beds




258

00:14:18,299 --> 00:14:20,889

I was trying to build them level and but




259

00:14:21,089 --> 00:14:22,659

yet I needed to you know I needed to




260

00:14:22,860 --> 00:14:24,549

take them and and build them down this




261

00:14:24,750 --> 00:14:26,919

hill and stair-step them down the slope




262

00:14:27,120 --> 00:14:28,059

of this hill so it's kind of an




263

00:14:28,259 --> 00:14:30,068

interesting process I think it turned




264

00:14:30,269 --> 00:14:33,068

out fairly good but let's go ahead and




265

00:14:33,269 --> 00:14:34,118

have a look at it and see how they




266

00:14:34,318 --> 00:14:38,078

turned out so here's the raised beds




267

00:14:38,278 --> 00:14:40,479

from the bottom of the hill and we're




268

00:14:40,679 --> 00:14:43,389

kind of looking up the hill so you can




269

00:14:43,589 --> 00:14:45,359

kind of see how they step up the hill




270

00:14:45,559 --> 00:14:48,399

now the way this kind of worked out is




271

00:14:48,600 --> 00:14:51,099

as you work your way down the hill I




272

00:14:51,299 --> 00:14:53,948

built these raised beds with with two




273

00:14:54,149 --> 00:14:57,479

two by sixes tall so on the uphill side




274

00:14:57,679 --> 00:15:00,578

you end up with one board about showing




275

00:15:00,778 --> 00:15:02,919

right there and then by the time you go




276

00:15:03,120 --> 00:15:05,738

down the slope you end up with both two




277

00:15:05,938 --> 00:15:08,589

by sixes exposed and then you go to the




278

00:15:08,789 --> 00:15:10,328

next raised bed and it's the same thing




279

00:15:10,528 --> 00:15:12,789

one board exposed and then as you go




280

00:15:12,990 --> 00:15:16,238

down the raised bed both boards you know




281

00:15:16,438 --> 00:15:18,099

end up showing and that's just kind of




282

00:15:18,299 --> 00:15:19,779

how it ended up working as you went down




283

00:15:19,980 --> 00:15:23,019

the hill now this this raised bed here




284

00:15:23,220 --> 00:15:25,929

at the end of the hill it had slope in




285

00:15:26,129 --> 00:15:28,029

two directions so it's losing it's going




286

00:15:28,230 --> 00:15:29,709

downhill this direction but it's




287

00:15:29,909 --> 00:15:31,599

so going downhill in that direction so




288

00:15:31,799 --> 00:15:33,789

if you notice we have one board showing




289

00:15:33,990 --> 00:15:37,089

here and then it goes to two boards and




290

00:15:37,289 --> 00:15:39,459

then over here it's two boards and then




291

00:15:39,659 --> 00:15:42,129

as it goes downhill it ends up being




292

00:15:42,330 --> 00:15:44,289

three boards so this raised bed and this




293

00:15:44,490 --> 00:15:46,329

this corner here ends up getting a




294

00:15:46,529 --> 00:15:49,240

little bit a little bit deeper and used




295

00:15:49,440 --> 00:15:51,639

a little bit more lumber to do this




296

00:15:51,840 --> 00:15:54,399

raised bed because it was you know it is




297

00:15:54,600 --> 00:15:56,649

affected by slope in actually two




298

00:15:56,850 --> 00:15:58,000

different directions since this is a




299

00:15:58,200 --> 00:16:01,719

corner raised bed here now this will




300

00:16:01,919 --> 00:16:03,009

even back out when we build our next




301

00:16:03,210 --> 00:16:04,329

raised bed we'll just start out with two




302

00:16:04,529 --> 00:16:06,279

boards again and we'll just work our way




303

00:16:06,480 --> 00:16:08,079

down that hill and it'll kind of even




304

00:16:08,279 --> 00:16:11,500

back out but that was kind of the only




305

00:16:11,700 --> 00:16:13,299

difference here was this the corner bed




306

00:16:13,500 --> 00:16:15,789

was affected by the slope in two




307

00:16:15,990 --> 00:16:18,699

directions and it affected it a little




308

00:16:18,899 --> 00:16:21,729

bit more but I think as we walk up the




309

00:16:21,929 --> 00:16:23,529

hill here we'll look at these raised




310

00:16:23,730 --> 00:16:26,259

beds I think they turned out




311

00:16:26,460 --> 00:16:29,879

I think they've turned out pretty good




312

00:16:30,080 --> 00:16:32,409

they're not all perfectly nice and neat




313

00:16:32,610 --> 00:16:35,139

my posts my posts ended up being about




314

00:16:35,340 --> 00:16:38,049

eight feet apart so by the time and I've




315

00:16:38,250 --> 00:16:40,029

got these nice and finished here on the




316

00:16:40,230 --> 00:16:42,819

ends they basically end at the end of




317

00:16:43,019 --> 00:16:44,829

the post and that's where the gates




318

00:16:45,029 --> 00:16:45,789

gonna be so that's a little more




319

00:16:45,990 --> 00:16:48,279

finished but when we ended here at this




320

00:16:48,480 --> 00:16:49,839

post you can see I'm pretty much out of




321

00:16:50,039 --> 00:16:52,359

board it pretty much it pretty much ends




322

00:16:52,559 --> 00:16:54,849

in the center of the board and so it's




323

00:16:55,049 --> 00:16:57,429

not quite as neat of a corner right




324

00:16:57,629 --> 00:16:57,879

there




325

00:16:58,080 --> 00:17:01,389

at that post so I mean it's not perfect




326

00:17:01,590 --> 00:17:04,149

but you know that's just something to




327

00:17:04,349 --> 00:17:06,339

overlook so it's it's not exactly a




328

00:17:06,539 --> 00:17:07,779

hundred percent perfect it looks better




329

00:17:07,980 --> 00:17:11,069

from the other side in that aspect but




330

00:17:11,269 --> 00:17:13,269

that's probably the only thing I'll knit




331

00:17:13,470 --> 00:17:15,309

pick other than that I think it you know




332

00:17:15,509 --> 00:17:17,500

as it goes up this hill you know it's




333

00:17:17,700 --> 00:17:19,960

looking pretty good so I think I'm




334

00:17:20,160 --> 00:17:21,849

pretty happy with the way it it's turned




335

00:17:22,049 --> 00:17:25,930

out once I get a fence around here and




336

00:17:26,130 --> 00:17:27,819

everything it'll totally take a whole




337

00:17:28,019 --> 00:17:31,329

nother look to it but let's have a look




338

00:17:31,529 --> 00:17:35,980

at it as we look down the hill here so




339

00:17:36,180 --> 00:17:37,329

you can see I think I think when you




340

00:17:37,529 --> 00:17:38,859

look down the hill I think you kind of




341

00:17:39,059 --> 00:17:41,519

get a little bit more of a idea of how




342

00:17:41,720 --> 00:17:43,569

far this garden kind




343

00:17:43,769 --> 00:17:45,279

slopes down the hill you know it's just




344

00:17:45,480 --> 00:17:47,409

it's just kind of going downhill here




345

00:17:47,609 --> 00:17:48,490

and you see it a little bit better I




346

00:17:48,690 --> 00:17:50,710

think from the top so we'll go ahead




347

00:17:50,910 --> 00:17:54,819

take a look from the inside and so the




348

00:17:55,019 --> 00:17:57,099

inside is not a not a hundred percent




349

00:17:57,299 --> 00:18:01,869

perfect there's a few gaps showing which




350

00:18:02,069 --> 00:18:03,909

the plastic is kind of hiding it but you




351

00:18:04,109 --> 00:18:06,119

can see some some gaps are showing here




352

00:18:06,319 --> 00:18:09,369

on some of these beds I think this one




353

00:18:09,569 --> 00:18:11,710

down here I'll show it real well so you




354

00:18:11,910 --> 00:18:13,109

can kind of see there's kind of a gap




355

00:18:13,309 --> 00:18:15,339

here at the bottom of that raised beds




356

00:18:15,539 --> 00:18:18,250

the downhill side ends up having a




357

00:18:18,450 --> 00:18:20,259

little bit of a gap on it so it's not a




358

00:18:20,460 --> 00:18:21,940

hundred percent perfect hopefully we'll




359

00:18:22,140 --> 00:18:23,859

get some we'll get some wood chips I'm




360

00:18:24,059 --> 00:18:25,240

really trying to get some wood chips




361

00:18:25,440 --> 00:18:27,430

we'll get some wood chips and start




362

00:18:27,630 --> 00:18:30,190

building this area up for walkways it'll




363

00:18:30,390 --> 00:18:32,409

cover up all the gaps and everything




364

00:18:32,609 --> 00:18:35,109

will look pretty good so I know




365

00:18:35,309 --> 00:18:36,849

everything don't look exactly perfect




366

00:18:37,049 --> 00:18:38,079

right now because I've got this black




367

00:18:38,279 --> 00:18:40,359

plastic down so this black plastic is




368

00:18:40,559 --> 00:18:43,149

just to kill all the grass in this area




369

00:18:43,349 --> 00:18:44,950

so I can go ahead add more raised beds




370

00:18:45,150 --> 00:18:47,230

so I can plant more plants in this area




371

00:18:47,430 --> 00:18:50,889

so it's it's not picturesque at the




372

00:18:51,089 --> 00:18:54,369

moment but I think if we just focus on




373

00:18:54,569 --> 00:18:55,990

the actual raised beds




374

00:18:56,190 --> 00:18:57,970

I think these raised beds are turning




375

00:18:58,170 --> 00:19:00,970

out fairly good so far now I know that




376

00:19:01,170 --> 00:19:04,119

all the posts aren't are a little uneven




377

00:19:04,319 --> 00:19:05,680

the post don't look a hundred percent




378

00:19:05,880 --> 00:19:08,440

right so the idea on the post when we




379

00:19:08,640 --> 00:19:10,930

put our fence up we will cut all those




380

00:19:11,130 --> 00:19:12,879

posts off to whatever the correct height




381

00:19:13,079 --> 00:19:15,369

this and then we're also on the top of




382

00:19:15,569 --> 00:19:16,659

those posts it's going to be hard to




383

00:19:16,859 --> 00:19:18,129

explore but on the top of the post we're




384

00:19:18,329 --> 00:19:20,289

gonna probably put two by four across




385

00:19:20,490 --> 00:19:23,349

the top and so you'll have like a border




386

00:19:23,549 --> 00:19:24,879

along the top of that fence they'll kind




387

00:19:25,079 --> 00:19:27,069

of finish the top of the fence when we




388

00:19:27,269 --> 00:19:28,480

build the fence but I think the fence




389

00:19:28,680 --> 00:19:30,759

will be a little bit farther down the




390

00:19:30,960 --> 00:19:32,379

road it'll be one of the last things we




391

00:19:32,579 --> 00:19:36,690

probably do on this raised bed garden so




392

00:19:36,890 --> 00:19:38,950

anyway I pretty much if you watch my




393

00:19:39,150 --> 00:19:41,919

first raised bed garden video when I




394

00:19:42,119 --> 00:19:43,419

built the first raised beds these are




395

00:19:43,619 --> 00:19:47,109

pretty much built exactly the same they




396

00:19:47,309 --> 00:19:50,169

do have like the little boards in the




397

00:19:50,369 --> 00:19:52,960

middle to help attach you know they




398

00:19:53,160 --> 00:19:56,139

these boards right here they help attach




399

00:19:56,339 --> 00:19:58,599

those two together kind of help




400

00:19:58,799 --> 00:20:00,819

you know stay the same and stay together




401

00:20:01,019 --> 00:20:04,059

and stay even and of course we got




402

00:20:04,259 --> 00:20:06,009

boards like that on in all the corners




403

00:20:06,210 --> 00:20:08,440

and so if you look at that very first




404

00:20:08,640 --> 00:20:10,269

raised bed video these are pretty much




405

00:20:10,470 --> 00:20:13,930

built the same except every bed goes




406

00:20:14,130 --> 00:20:15,549

down a little bit and goes down the hill




407

00:20:15,750 --> 00:20:17,409

you know it just steps down so I think




408

00:20:17,609 --> 00:20:21,490

it turned out pretty good so I think




409

00:20:21,690 --> 00:20:23,680

that the next video that I'm gonna make




410

00:20:23,880 --> 00:20:27,009

in this instant garden area I think it's




411

00:20:27,210 --> 00:20:29,230

gonna be probably the earth garden




412

00:20:29,430 --> 00:20:31,450

portion of course I'm trying to kill




413

00:20:31,650 --> 00:20:33,309

this off so that I can grow plants in




414

00:20:33,509 --> 00:20:35,349

the middle of this area I may I'm




415

00:20:35,549 --> 00:20:36,700

probably set to end up renting a tiller




416

00:20:36,900 --> 00:20:38,079

or something so I can get this all




417

00:20:38,279 --> 00:20:40,480

broken up and planted but I've got some




418

00:20:40,680 --> 00:20:43,180

of that what market gardeners use that




419

00:20:43,380 --> 00:20:44,919

weed barrier that weed fabric that they




420

00:20:45,119 --> 00:20:47,470

use we're gonna roll that out and try to




421

00:20:47,670 --> 00:20:49,089

make some rows that'll help keep the




422

00:20:49,289 --> 00:20:51,129

weeds down so less weeding and then




423

00:20:51,329 --> 00:20:53,139

we're gonna get all these peppers




424

00:20:53,339 --> 00:20:55,059

tomatoes artichokes get all that planted




425

00:20:55,259 --> 00:20:57,609

we've got some zucchini to plant




426

00:20:57,809 --> 00:21:00,220

eggplant the plant sweet corn to plant




427

00:21:00,420 --> 00:21:01,990

we got a lot of things that we want to




428

00:21:02,190 --> 00:21:03,399

plant here in the middle is going to be




429

00:21:03,599 --> 00:21:04,659

an earth garden so we got a lot of stuff




430

00:21:04,859 --> 00:21:05,859

we're going to plant directly in the




431

00:21:06,059 --> 00:21:08,769

ground may end up taking some of this




432

00:21:08,970 --> 00:21:12,460

pile of extra soil may take that and try




433

00:21:12,660 --> 00:21:14,409

to spread that out on the ground and try




434

00:21:14,609 --> 00:21:16,960

to till that in to try to break up some




435

00:21:17,160 --> 00:21:18,190

of this clay a little bit this is all




436

00:21:18,390 --> 00:21:20,349

clay soil it's not very very good so I




437

00:21:20,549 --> 00:21:21,549

think through the years it'll take a




438

00:21:21,750 --> 00:21:23,829

while but if we can add stuff to it and




439

00:21:24,029 --> 00:21:26,109

I'm into it it'll end up being a good




440

00:21:26,309 --> 00:21:30,369

garden area over time but that's what we




441

00:21:30,569 --> 00:21:32,259

got planned I think after that you know




442

00:21:32,460 --> 00:21:34,240

when the plants are planting and you




443

00:21:34,440 --> 00:21:35,529

know are growing good and we're done




444

00:21:35,730 --> 00:21:37,960

planting plants we'll work on some




445

00:21:38,160 --> 00:21:39,519

compost bins so I think I want to make




446

00:21:39,720 --> 00:21:41,799

like a three compost bin system we want




447

00:21:42,000 --> 00:21:43,269

to put a tool shed I think over in that




448

00:21:43,470 --> 00:21:45,129

corner over there just to be able to




449

00:21:45,329 --> 00:21:47,649

hold all our tools and fertilizers you




450

00:21:47,849 --> 00:21:49,210

know stuff like that you know our




451

00:21:49,410 --> 00:21:53,440

amendments so what else in the fall in




452

00:21:53,640 --> 00:21:54,970

the fall I want to like make some cold




453

00:21:55,170 --> 00:21:57,909

frames on cold frames on the south side




454

00:21:58,109 --> 00:21:59,529

of the garden to the south side that




455

00:21:59,730 --> 00:22:01,869

faces the Sun in the wintertime I'd like




456

00:22:02,069 --> 00:22:04,029

to make some cold frames so that we




457

00:22:04,230 --> 00:22:06,639

actually can try to see how far we can




458

00:22:06,839 --> 00:22:08,680

grow plants into the wintertime see if




459

00:22:08,880 --> 00:22:11,240

we can have some fall crops




460

00:22:11,440 --> 00:22:12,889

and maybe grow some lettuce and stuff




461

00:22:13,089 --> 00:22:17,000

like that latent latent to the year so




462

00:22:17,200 --> 00:22:18,438

they probably you know when all that's




463

00:22:18,638 --> 00:22:19,969

done we'll probably finally look at




464

00:22:20,169 --> 00:22:22,250

fencing trying to get our fencing




465

00:22:22,450 --> 00:22:23,750

complete around this garden so it's




466

00:22:23,950 --> 00:22:24,769

gonna take a long time to get it done




467

00:22:24,970 --> 00:22:27,558

it'll probably take you know about a




468

00:22:27,759 --> 00:22:28,519

year before it's a hundred percent




469

00:22:28,720 --> 00:22:30,588

complete but I think it'll turn out




470

00:22:30,788 --> 00:22:31,969

great when it's done so if you're




471

00:22:32,169 --> 00:22:34,098

interested in this trying to make this




472

00:22:34,298 --> 00:22:36,409

big fenced in garden area you know hit




473

00:22:36,609 --> 00:22:39,799

subscribe pay you know and just will




474

00:22:40,000 --> 00:22:41,149

slowly post some videos throughout the




475

00:22:41,349 --> 00:22:44,299

year well also we have a Facebook page I




476

00:22:44,500 --> 00:22:45,588

never really say this on there but we




477

00:22:45,788 --> 00:22:48,229

have a Facebook page and if you want to




478

00:22:48,429 --> 00:22:50,240

look that up we do post some extra




479

00:22:50,440 --> 00:22:52,608

1 minute video clips of some extra stuff




481

00:22:55,119 --> 00:22:57,198

482

00:22:57,398 --> 00:23:00,369

We are finally planting our 3 acre field in a mix of alfalfa and grass hay.  We went to the USDA extension office and rented a no till seed drill to plant the field.  We are planting a mixture of orchard grass, timothy grass and alfalfa.  We plan on using this hay to feed the livestock on the homestead. view all
