00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,600

3

00:00:03,779 --> 00:00:06,809

4

00:00:07,009 --> 00:00:17,919

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

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]




32

00:02:17,360 --> 00:02:25,810

[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

camera battery I've carefully burned




173

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

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

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

with a pretty concentrated fish




8

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

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

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]




32

00:02:17,360 --> 00:02:25,810

[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

last time she mowed was the day that he

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

00:00:27,829 --> 00:00:33,099

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

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

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

a better footing in I wouldn't say a

Transcript:
 
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

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

folks this has been another great day on




102

00:07:09,668 --> 00:07:10,850

Our new Jersey family milk cow decided to adopt a baby calf like it was her own. Homesteading farm story...

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

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

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

then if some radishes in here that one




91

00:04:53,120 --> 00:04:54,689

102

00:05:30,050 --> 00:05:32,050

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

some baby goats




127

00:06:34,930 --> 00:06:38,050

[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

you in some fly spray ma'am I think




152

00:08:26,728 --> 00:08:28,778

that's why she's making that little bit




153

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

of a bellowing film so bad this year




154

00:08:31,668 --> 00:08:33,669

spray I did get thumb on her just now so




158

00:08:43,019 --> 00:08:43,929

159

00:08:44,129 --> 00:08:46,639

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

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

then if some radishes in here that one




91

00:04:53,120 --> 00:04:54,689

actually it's a nice little radish in




92

00:04:54,889 --> 00:04:58,139

there let's pull that up oh what a




93

00:04:58,339 --> 00:05:00,300

pretty little radish we'll bring that




94

00:05:00,500 --> 00:05:04,680

inside probably more and then cilantro




95

00:05:04,879 --> 00:05:06,280

beautifully green




96

00:05:06,480 --> 00:05:11,680

growing starting here we have herbs dill




97

00:05:11,879 --> 00:05:14,139

plants here and then lots of little dill




98

00:05:14,339 --> 00:05:16,960

coming up chives bunching onions here




99

00:05:17,160 --> 00:05:19,600

100

00:05:19,800 --> 00:05:26,020

you know oregano thyme sage tarragon I'm




101

00:05:26,220 --> 00:05:29,850

pretty sure I'll show you how our




102

00:05:30,050 --> 00:05:32,050

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

some baby goats




127

00:06:34,930 --> 00:06:38,050

[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

how are you all doing we all do it




141

00:07:30,779 --> 00:07:32,730

you in some fly spray ma'am I think




152

00:08:26,728 --> 00:08:28,778

that's why she's making that little bit




153

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

of a bellowing film so bad this year




154

00:08:31,668 --> 00:08:33,669

155

00:08:33,870 --> 00:08:37,059

running from me what count does like




156

00:08:37,259 --> 00:08:39,699

being straight dolly never liked fly

spray I did get thumb on her just now so




158

00:08:43,019 --> 00:08:43,929

159

00:08:44,129 --> 00:08:46,639

comfortable




160

00:08:56,379 --> 00:08:58,709

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

VideosCountry View Acres posted the article • 0 comments • 21 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.

00:00:18,309 --> 00:00:18,750

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

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

[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

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

153

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

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

of chickens no chickens were injured in




52

00:06:20,418 --> 00:06:23,459

the making of this video they might be




53

00:06:23,658 --> 00:06:28,049

one escaped they might be a little bit




54

00:06:28,249 --> 00:06:30,460

man




55

00:06:34,790 --> 00:06:37,929

[Music]




56

00:06:39,788 --> 00:06:43,619

alright so we should have we're hoping




57

00:06:43,819 --> 00:06:47,009

to have 22 chickens in here one one




58

00:06:47,209 --> 00:06:49,110

escaped and hopefully we will when she




59

00:06:49,310 --> 00:06:50,730

goes back in the coop later we'll catch




60

00:06:50,930 --> 00:06:54,899

her so she should go in there this




61

00:06:55,098 --> 00:06:56,069

evening we should be okay sure no




62

00:06:56,269 --> 00:06:57,209

problem




63

00:06:57,408 --> 00:07:00,899

look they're trying out the ruse all




64

00:07:01,098 --> 00:07:05,519

right so I've got two eggs are you




65

00:07:05,718 --> 00:07:12,879

wanting me to put these okay




66

00:07:13,829 --> 00:07:19,990

let me get my flashlight out all right




67

00:07:20,189 --> 00:07:25,838

count them again two point two chickens




68

00:07:26,038 --> 00:07:28,270

so 23 check third chicken is escaped




69

00:07:28,470 --> 00:07:31,569

yeah so like I was saying I got the eggs




70

00:07:31,769 --> 00:07:33,338

did you want me to put that in the nest




71

00:07:33,538 --> 00:07:36,218

box clicking different nest boxes yeah




72

00:07:36,418 --> 00:07:42,699

sure you how are you do you think




73

00:07:42,899 --> 00:07:48,228

they'll maybe help them know where to go




74

00:07:49,310 --> 00:07:53,319

so we just got to get one more water




75

00:07:53,519 --> 00:07:55,869

bucket in here and then we're good to go




76

00:07:56,069 --> 00:07:58,329

we'll catch one of the chickens tonight




77

00:07:58,529 --> 00:08:01,300

and get her in here and that should be




78

00:08:01,500 --> 00:08:01,749

it




79

00:08:01,949 --> 00:08:05,110

so this is we're afraid since this is so




80

00:08:05,310 --> 00:08:06,879

close to their actual coop that they've




81

00:08:07,079 --> 00:08:09,100

lived in if we free-range them they'll




82

00:08:09,300 --> 00:08:12,218

end up at the other coop wanting to go




83

00:08:12,418 --> 00:08:15,338

into there so we may actually need to




84

00:08:15,538 --> 00:08:16,709

lock them in here for quite a bit longer




85

00:08:16,908 --> 00:08:18,309

this time around




86

00:08:18,509 --> 00:08:21,218

let's have to wait see how that goes but




87

00:08:21,418 --> 00:08:23,709

I think if we end up free-ranging them




88

00:08:23,908 --> 00:08:25,088

in a couple days they'll end up with the




89

00:08:25,288 --> 00:08:41,528

other coop trying to sleep in there yeah




90

00:08:41,729 --> 00:08:47,049

no scratch through this drone they




91

00:08:47,250 --> 00:08:49,448

already they're already scratching




92

00:08:49,649 --> 00:08:51,639

through this strong so this is what we




93

00:08:51,839 --> 00:08:53,620

had on hand for bedding or whatever is a




94

00:08:53,820 --> 00:08:56,049

wind bale of straw so that's what we're




95

00:08:56,250 --> 00:08:58,448

using we've used wood chips in the past




96

00:08:58,649 --> 00:09:01,628

week we end up with wood chips again we




97

00:09:01,828 --> 00:09:03,089

may use those again but right now




98

00:09:03,289 --> 00:09:04,079

we're just going to use what we got




99

00:09:04,279 --> 00:09:28,709

which is strong so how'd that go what do




100

00:09:28,909 --> 00:09:34,769

you think no two big problems just lost




101

00:09:34,970 --> 00:09:40,529

the buff so we'll get her back as much




102

00:09:40,730 --> 00:09:43,049

oh well I think if when we're




103

00:09:43,250 --> 00:09:44,339

free-ranging them they're gonna run




104

00:09:44,539 --> 00:09:46,349

around I don't think that being darker




105

00:09:46,549 --> 00:09:46,979

in here




106

00:09:47,179 --> 00:09:52,829

is he gonna matter well anyway we got




107

00:09:53,029 --> 00:09:54,419

all the chickens moved to the new coop




108

00:09:54,620 --> 00:09:57,539

so everything's in the barn now so it's




109

00:09:57,740 --> 00:09:59,699

gonna be way easier for my wife to be




110

00:09:59,899 --> 00:10:01,079

able to take care of your animals she




111

00:10:01,279 --> 00:10:02,819

actually takes care of the animals




112

00:10:03,019 --> 00:10:05,069

probably at least four days of the week




113

00:10:05,269 --> 00:10:06,899

I kind of do it on the weekends just




114

00:10:07,100 --> 00:10:08,669

because I usually get up before her but




115

00:10:08,870 --> 00:10:11,159

she's usually the main animal person




116

00:10:11,360 --> 00:10:13,139

because she does I just do some feeding




117

00:10:13,340 --> 00:10:14,849

and watering she normally does all the




118

00:10:15,049 --> 00:10:16,709

coop clean outs and all the clean-out




119

00:10:16,909 --> 00:10:19,349

stalls so she she does most of this




120

00:10:19,549 --> 00:10:21,899

stuff and it'll be way easier in here




121

00:10:22,100 --> 00:10:24,149

out of the rain now so as before you




122

00:10:24,350 --> 00:10:25,889

used to do it outside and the in the




123

00:10:26,090 --> 00:10:30,959

rain and the bad weather and so yeah be




124

00:10:31,159 --> 00:10:34,500

way easier that's it guys thanks for

51

00:06:05,269 --> 00:06:20,218

of chickens no chickens were injured in




52

00:06:20,418 --> 00:06:23,459

the making of this video they might be




53

00:06:23,658 --> 00:06:28,049

one escaped they might be a little bit




54

00:06:28,249 --> 00:06:30,460

man




55

00:06:34,790 --> 00:06:37,929

[Music]




56

00:06:39,788 --> 00:06:43,619

alright so we should have we're hoping




57

00:06:43,819 --> 00:06:47,009

to have 22 chickens in here one one




58

00:06:47,209 --> 00:06:49,110

escaped and hopefully we will when she




59

00:06:49,310 --> 00:06:50,730

goes back in the coop later we'll catch




60

00:06:50,930 --> 00:06:54,899

her so she should go in there this




61

00:06:55,098 --> 00:06:56,069

evening we should be okay sure no




62

00:06:56,269 --> 00:06:57,209

problem




63

00:06:57,408 --> 00:07:00,899

look they're trying out the ruse all




64

00:07:01,098 --> 00:07:05,519

right so I've got two eggs are you




65

00:07:05,718 --> 00:07:12,879

wanting me to put these okay




66

00:07:13,829 --> 00:07:19,990

let me get my flashlight out all right




67

00:07:20,189 --> 00:07:25,838

count them again two point two chickens




68

00:07:26,038 --> 00:07:28,270

so 23 check third chicken is escaped




69

00:07:28,470 --> 00:07:31,569

yeah so like I was saying I got the eggs




70

00:07:31,769 --> 00:07:33,338

did you want me to put that in the nest




71

00:07:33,538 --> 00:07:36,218

box clicking different nest boxes yeah




72

00:07:36,418 --> 00:07:42,699

sure you how are you do you think




73

00:07:42,899 --> 00:07:48,228

they'll maybe help them know where to go




74

00:07:49,310 --> 00:07:53,319

so we just got to get one more water




75

00:07:53,519 --> 00:07:55,869

bucket in here and then we're good to go




76

00:07:56,069 --> 00:07:58,329

we'll catch one of the chickens tonight




77

00:07:58,529 --> 00:08:01,300

and get her in here and that should be




78

00:08:01,500 --> 00:08:01,749

it




79

00:08:01,949 --> 00:08:05,110

so this is we're afraid since this is so




80

00:08:05,310 --> 00:08:06,879

close to their actual coop that they've




81

00:08:07,079 --> 00:08:09,100

lived in if we free-range them they'll




82

00:08:09,300 --> 00:08:12,218

end up at the other coop wanting to go




83

00:08:12,418 --> 00:08:15,338

into there so we may actually need to




84

00:08:15,538 --> 00:08:16,709

lock them in here for quite a bit longer




85

00:08:16,908 --> 00:08:18,309

this time around




86

00:08:18,509 --> 00:08:21,218

let's have to wait see how that goes but




87

00:08:21,418 --> 00:08:23,709

I think if we end up free-ranging them




88

00:08:23,908 --> 00:08:25,088

in a couple days they'll end up with the




89

00:08:25,288 --> 00:08:41,528

other coop trying to sleep in there yeah




90

00:08:41,729 --> 00:08:47,049

no scratch through this drone they




91

00:08:47,250 --> 00:08:49,448

already they're already scratching




92

00:08:49,649 --> 00:08:51,639

through this strong so this is what we




93

00:08:51,839 --> 00:08:53,620

had on hand for bedding or whatever is a




94

00:08:53,820 --> 00:08:56,049

wind bale of straw so that's what we're




95

00:08:56,250 --> 00:08:58,448

using we've used wood chips in the past




96

00:08:58,649 --> 00:09:01,628

week we end up with wood chips again we




97

00:09:01,828 --> 00:09:03,089

may use those again but right now




98

00:09:03,289 --> 00:09:04,079

we're just going to use what we got




99

00:09:04,279 --> 00:09:28,709

which is strong so how'd that go what do




100

00:09:28,909 --> 00:09:34,769

you think no two big problems just lost




101

00:09:34,970 --> 00:09:40,529

the buff so we'll get her back as much




102

00:09:40,730 --> 00:09:43,049

oh well I think if when we're




103

00:09:43,250 --> 00:09:44,339

free-ranging them they're gonna run




104

00:09:44,539 --> 00:09:46,349

around I don't think that being darker




105

00:09:46,549 --> 00:09:46,979

in here




106

00:09:47,179 --> 00:09:52,829

is he gonna matter well anyway we got




107

00:09:53,029 --> 00:09:54,419

all the chickens moved to the new coop




108

00:09:54,620 --> 00:09:57,539

so everything's in the barn now so it's




109

00:09:57,740 --> 00:09:59,699

gonna be way easier for my wife to be




110

00:09:59,899 --> 00:10:01,079

able to take care of your animals she




111

00:10:01,279 --> 00:10:02,819

actually takes care of the animals




112

00:10:03,019 --> 00:10:05,069

probably at least four days of the week




113

00:10:05,269 --> 00:10:06,899

I kind of do it on the weekends just




114

00:10:07,100 --> 00:10:08,669

because I usually get up before her but




115

00:10:08,870 --> 00:10:11,159

she's usually the main animal person




116

00:10:11,360 --> 00:10:13,139

because she does I just do some feeding




117

00:10:13,340 --> 00:10:14,849

and watering she normally does all the




118

00:10:15,049 --> 00:10:16,709

coop clean outs and all the clean-out




119

00:10:16,909 --> 00:10:19,349

stalls so she she does most of this




120

00:10:19,549 --> 00:10:21,899

stuff and it'll be way easier in here




121

00:10:22,100 --> 00:10:24,149

out of the rain now so as before you




122

00:10:24,350 --> 00:10:25,889

used to do it outside and the in the




123

00:10:26,090 --> 00:10:30,959

rain and the bad weather and so yeah be




124

00:10:31,159 --> 00:10:34,500

way easier that's it guys thanks for




125

Building a small animal Stall in the lower level of the barn

My wife is getting another goat, so I need to build another animal stall. That way we can keep her new goat separated from the rest of the goats. So, we are building a small animal stall in the lower level of our bank bank. We could use this stall as a birthing stall or just to house any small livestock.

1

00:00:07,429 --> 00:00:13,930

00:00:28,559 --> 00:00:30,728

she needs to keep it separated she needs




6

00:00:30,928 --> 00:00:32,099

to keep it separated from these goats




7

00:00:32,299 --> 00:00:36,279

for so many days so I've got to end up




8

00:00:36,479 --> 00:00:37,989

making another animal stall I need to




9

00:00:38,189 --> 00:00:40,719

get another you know animal stomas barn




10

00:00:40,920 --> 00:00:42,309

built today so that it's ready for




11

00:00:42,509 --> 00:00:46,178

Friday so I got a lot to do previously




12

00:00:46,378 --> 00:00:48,909

you see we've built we built this goat




13

00:00:49,109 --> 00:00:50,768

stall here this is like a double stall




14

00:00:50,969 --> 00:00:53,108

it's a birdie pretty big sized stall and




15

00:00:53,308 --> 00:00:55,358

I had this platform in here for the




16

00:00:55,558 --> 00:00:57,099

goats they'll climb on top of and lay on




17

00:00:57,299 --> 00:00:59,649

I'm not gonna do that in this next stall




18

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,209

this next stall is gonna be half the




19

00:01:01,409 --> 00:01:05,379

size it's gonna go basically it's gonna




20

00:01:05,579 --> 00:01:07,509

go right beside it it's gonna go in this




21

00:01:07,709 --> 00:01:11,619

location right here and so it's gonna be




22

00:01:11,819 --> 00:01:13,299

about half the size of the other sole




23

00:01:13,500 --> 00:01:17,500

and then on that back wall here on that




24

00:01:17,700 --> 00:01:19,750

back wall here where that concrete rail




25

00:01:19,950 --> 00:01:21,369

a box is I'm just going to cover that up




26

00:01:21,569 --> 00:01:23,409

with a board I'm not gonna build a




27

00:01:23,609 --> 00:01:26,319

platform in this stall but I'm gonna go




28

00:01:26,519 --> 00:01:27,700

ahead I'm going to do probably some of




29

00:01:27,900 --> 00:01:30,599

this goat and sheep panel on the side




30

00:01:30,799 --> 00:01:33,099

just like I did the other one and then




31

00:01:33,299 --> 00:01:35,289

I'll probably on the front of the stall




32

00:01:35,489 --> 00:01:37,140

I'll probably do something kind of solid




33

00:01:37,340 --> 00:01:39,549

like this other stall to try to get into




34

00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:42,668

the match but it's gonna be interesting




35

00:01:42,868 --> 00:01:44,890

in here today my wife has been working




36

00:01:45,090 --> 00:01:47,079

last weekend all weekend she works this




37

00:01:47,280 --> 00:01:52,269

weekend all weekend so basically I've




38

00:01:52,469 --> 00:01:54,250

been on my own the last couple weekends




39

00:01:54,450 --> 00:01:57,219

doing these projects so I'll be in here




40

00:01:57,420 --> 00:01:59,500

today with all these goats and all these




41

00:01:59,700 --> 00:02:01,659

chickens and it's gonna be dark and




42

00:02:01,859 --> 00:02:03,009

dreary in here today because it's dark




43

00:02:03,209 --> 00:02:05,590

and dreary outside I do have a couple of




44

00:02:05,790 --> 00:02:06,849

work lights not sure how long they'll




45

00:02:07,049 --> 00:02:08,890

work but I'm gonna go ahead and get




46

00:02:09,090 --> 00:02:11,320

tearing this old stall whatever the




47

00:02:11,520 --> 00:02:13,219

remnants of this old stall is right




48

00:02:13,419 --> 00:02:16,219

back here I'm gonna go ahead and tear




49

00:02:16,419 --> 00:02:18,560

that out and get started




50

00:02:18,759 --> 00:02:20,180

building a new stall hopefully I can get




51

00:02:20,379 --> 00:02:24,439

that done today and okay and hopefully




52

00:02:24,639 --> 00:02:27,050

these goats don't end up annoying me too




53

00:02:27,250 --> 00:02:29,200

much but we'll see how it goes




54

00:02:29,400 --> 00:02:31,550

hopefully today I can get this torn out




55

00:02:31,750 --> 00:02:33,770

and a new one built and it's in its




56

00:02:33,969 --> 00:02:35,689

place and there'll be ready for Friday




57

00:02:35,889 --> 00:02:38,360

for my wife to get her her new goat so




58

00:02:38,560 --> 00:02:40,368

she actually this ago is one I think she




59

00:02:40,568 --> 00:02:43,069

agreed to purchase first but she's been




60

00:02:43,269 --> 00:02:45,890

waiting for it to be weaned so I think




61

00:02:46,090 --> 00:02:48,439

she actually had this painting goat




62

00:02:48,639 --> 00:02:50,420

lined up to purchase before she even got




63

00:02:50,620 --> 00:02:52,340

he's Nigerian Dwarfs dibs




64

00:02:52,539 --> 00:02:55,880

so anyway I'm will go ahead and get




65

00:02:56,080 --> 00:02:57,770

started see if I can get some lights in




66

00:02:57,969 --> 00:03:00,349

here maybe help it up a little bit so




67

00:03:00,549 --> 00:03:03,110

slow as you see and see if I get this




68

00:03:03,310 --> 00:03:07,430

stall built today see this is what I'm




69

00:03:07,629 --> 00:03:09,319

gonna have to deal with all day long as




70

00:03:09,519 --> 00:03:13,420

you two are gonna be climbing on me yeah




71

00:03:13,620 --> 00:03:15,770

yes we're gonna want some kind of treat




72

00:03:15,969 --> 00:03:18,750

or some food




73

00:03:22,530 --> 00:03:33,118

[Music]




74

00:03:36,250 --> 00:03:58,719

[Music]




75

00:04:05,129 --> 00:04:12,519

[Music]




76

00:04:16,899 --> 00:04:20,370

well I was able to get this old stall




77

00:04:20,569 --> 00:04:21,960

ripped out pretty quick that probably




78

00:04:22,160 --> 00:04:25,110

took about 15 minutes or so and I'm




79

00:04:25,310 --> 00:04:26,550

gonna start building this stall I'm




80

00:04:26,750 --> 00:04:29,040

going to build it the same way as I did




81

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:31,439

the last stall so I started off around




82

00:04:31,639 --> 00:04:33,689

these metal posts and I'm going to wrap




83

00:04:33,889 --> 00:04:35,490

that with some wood so I'm going to put




84

00:04:35,689 --> 00:04:38,160

a two by six on the front and then a two




85

00:04:38,360 --> 00:04:40,470

by four on each side and that'll




86

00:04:40,670 --> 00:04:42,240

basically kind of wrap this post or




87

00:04:42,439 --> 00:04:43,439

giving me something to be able to build




88

00:04:43,639 --> 00:04:45,270

off of it's gonna basically look like




89

00:04:45,470 --> 00:04:47,160

this post right here this is the exact




90

00:04:47,360 --> 00:04:49,889

same thing so we'll go ahead and we'll




91

00:04:50,089 --> 00:04:52,259

start right here under this post and




92

00:04:52,459 --> 00:04:54,090

that would be the other corner of this




93

00:04:54,290 --> 00:04:56,550

stall and then we'll get building this




94

00:04:56,750 --> 00:04:57,900

wall here and then we'll get build on




95

00:04:58,100 --> 00:04:59,759

the front and hopefully it won't take




96

00:04:59,959 --> 00:05:01,030

very long




97

00:05:01,230 --> 00:05:17,670

107

00:08:10,360 --> 00:08:12,840

so I just finished the front here on




108

00:08:13,040 --> 00:08:14,970

this stall and it pretty much matches




109

00:08:15,170 --> 00:08:16,710

the other stall so it's all looking




110

00:08:16,910 --> 00:08:17,610

pretty good




111

00:08:17,810 --> 00:08:20,370

my last LED light just went out so I




112

00:08:20,569 --> 00:08:21,900

probably need to charge the lights




113

00:08:22,100 --> 00:08:24,840

probably need to stop for lunch when I




114

00:08:25,040 --> 00:08:26,819

come back I'll go ahead and build this




115

00:08:27,019 --> 00:08:29,910

gate here this ain't going to basically




116

00:08:30,110 --> 00:08:33,149

take the rough opening you know of this




117

00:08:33,350 --> 00:08:36,449

gate I'm basically just - about three




118

00:08:36,649 --> 00:08:38,279

inches off it make this gate about three




119

00:08:38,480 --> 00:08:40,349

inches smaller and then I'll leave me




120

00:08:40,549 --> 00:08:41,849

about inch and a half on each side




121

00:08:42,049 --> 00:08:44,069

that'll be enough room for the big gate




122

00:08:44,269 --> 00:08:47,399

hinges and the latch on this side that's




123

00:08:47,600 --> 00:08:50,529

what we doing next build the gate




124

00:08:50,730 --> 00:10:47,509

[Music]




125

00:10:47,710 --> 00:10:49,879

all right well I finally got done




126

00:10:50,080 --> 00:10:53,129

finishing this small animal stall here




127

00:10:53,330 --> 00:10:55,740

in the barn so we go we got our goat and




128

00:10:55,940 --> 00:10:57,809

sheep panel we got it here on the side




129

00:10:58,009 --> 00:10:59,759

we got it on the side exactly the same




130

00:10:59,960 --> 00:11:03,569

way we did on the goat stall and on the




131

00:11:03,769 --> 00:11:06,359

back of the this stall we didn't build a




132

00:11:06,559 --> 00:11:08,519

platform like the goats but we did have




133

00:11:08,720 --> 00:11:10,500

a concrete this short concrete block




134

00:11:10,700 --> 00:11:12,240

wall here and it has those holes in it




135

00:11:12,440 --> 00:11:14,549

so we got this board down to cover them




136

00:11:14,750 --> 00:11:17,069

holes up so that'll be a lot safer than




137

00:11:17,269 --> 00:11:19,139

an animal get their leg in there and




138

00:11:19,340 --> 00:11:22,979

twisting never hurt them but small goats




139

00:11:23,179 --> 00:11:24,539

and stuff like we have they'll be able




140

00:11:24,740 --> 00:11:26,639

to just climb on here no problem and




141

00:11:26,840 --> 00:11:28,439

they're probably even really small and




142

00:11:28,639 --> 00:11:30,120

we'll be able to lay up here I don't




143

00:11:30,320 --> 00:11:32,279

think without any issue at least the




144

00:11:32,480 --> 00:11:34,319

babies and I don't go probably isn't




145

00:11:34,519 --> 00:11:36,990

going to lay on here but I think the




146

00:11:37,190 --> 00:11:38,789

young goats would have no problems




147

00:11:38,990 --> 00:11:41,819

laying up there so we did end up hanging




148

00:11:42,019 --> 00:11:44,279

we did this same thing in the goats talk




149

00:11:44,480 --> 00:11:46,979

to we ended up hanging a bucket hanger




150

00:11:47,179 --> 00:11:49,740

on the side and then we have a bucket




151

00:11:49,940 --> 00:11:51,269

hanging in there this is a temporary




152

00:11:51,470 --> 00:11:53,519

bucket for now but we'll end up hanging




153

00:11:53,720 --> 00:11:57,539

it like a flat back bucket on here and




154

00:11:57,740 --> 00:11:59,519

that'll be how the water the goats or




155

00:11:59,720 --> 00:12:00,779

water the animals




156

00:12:00,980 --> 00:12:02,250

wherever animals we end up having in




157

00:12:02,450 --> 00:12:04,679

here I will probably end up building




158

00:12:04,879 --> 00:12:06,659

some type of a hay feeder it'll fight




159

00:12:06,860 --> 00:12:08,879

and be smaller let's put some kind of a




160

00:12:09,080 --> 00:12:12,269

hay feeder here on the side haven't done




161

00:12:12,470 --> 00:12:15,000

that yet still need to do that so since




162

00:12:15,200 --> 00:12:16,529

this is a smaller soil and I put in a




163

00:12:16,730 --> 00:12:18,750

mineral feeder over here actually on the




164

00:12:18,950 --> 00:12:20,189

side so we've got a mineral feeder down




165

00:12:20,389 --> 00:12:23,990

here on the side and the the other goat




166

00:12:24,190 --> 00:12:27,959

stall back here so this goat skull back




167

00:12:28,159 --> 00:12:30,419

here you can see we put a hang on bucket




168

00:12:30,620 --> 00:12:33,209

right there and then that is so we can




169

00:12:33,409 --> 00:12:36,120

feed just you know be able to give give




170

00:12:36,320 --> 00:12:37,829

a feed to the goats




171

00:12:38,029 --> 00:12:39,479

so we'll probably do something I'll




172

00:12:39,679 --> 00:12:40,889

probably end up putting a hang on bucket




173

00:12:41,090 --> 00:12:42,899

on this side as well so if we want to




174

00:12:43,100 --> 00:12:44,370

give them feed we can pour it in that




175

00:12:44,570 --> 00:12:48,659

bucket but anyway that's the that's the




176

00:12:48,860 --> 00:12:51,719

new small stall down here in the barn




177

00:12:51,919 --> 00:12:53,519

and now my wife can go get




178

00:12:53,720 --> 00:12:54,809

banging out that she's supposed to be




179

00:12:55,009 --> 00:12:56,789

purchasing so right now it's two days




180

00:12:56,990 --> 00:12:58,409

away from when she gets the fainting




181

00:12:58,610 --> 00:13:00,179

goat so I think we're we're pretty much




182

00:13:00,379 --> 00:13:01,620

set up in here we'll need to come up




183

00:13:01,820 --> 00:13:03,000

with some way to be able to feed her




184

00:13:03,200 --> 00:13:06,599

some hay but pretty much the skull is




185

00:13:06,799 --> 00:13:08,159

ready to go so she can get her new




186

00:13:08,360 --> 00:13:11,069

fainting goat so that's it guys I just




187

00:13:11,269 --> 00:13:12,089

wanted to show you




188

00:13:12,289 --> 00:13:13,799

we're continuing working down here in




189

00:13:14,000 --> 00:13:15,509

the barn trying to get stalls and get




190

00:13:15,710 --> 00:13:18,990

this entire bar made out so we still got




191

00:13:19,190 --> 00:13:21,029

some more stuff to do down here we will




192

00:13:21,230 --> 00:13:23,250

eventually end up kind of walling off




193

00:13:23,450 --> 00:13:25,559

that back section on that side so that




194

00:13:25,759 --> 00:13:27,209

we can keep our feed stored and




195

00:13:27,409 --> 00:13:29,429

everything away where the animals won't




196

00:13:29,629 --> 00:13:32,009

be able to get to it and we still are




197

00:13:32,210 --> 00:13:33,839

gonna build at least one more stall down




198

00:13:34,039 --> 00:13:37,679

here we similar this stall like this but




199

00:13:37,879 --> 00:13:39,329

I think I'm going to totally and close




200

00:13:39,529 --> 00:13:41,039

it with fencing so I can use it as a




201

00:13:41,240 --> 00:13:45,659

breeder if I want to and I that's that's




202

00:13:45,860 --> 00:13:47,069

right now what we got playing down here




203

00:13:47,269 --> 00:13:49,409

so if you're interested in watching us




204

00:13:49,610 --> 00:13:51,240

kind of fix this old barn up eventually




205

00:13:51,440 --> 00:13:53,399

we will get to putting electricity water




206

00:13:53,600 --> 00:13:55,349

will eventually get the painting outside




207

00:13:55,549 --> 00:13:57,839

trying to fix more structural issues




208

00:13:58,039 --> 00:13:59,609

we've got some more posts on the




209

00:13:59,809 --> 00:14:01,649

upstairs part that we need to fix




210

00:14:01,850 --> 00:14:03,599

there's some other structural part parts




211

00:14:03,799 --> 00:14:05,250

that we need to fix on the upstairs so




212

00:14:05,450 --> 00:14:06,959

there's quite a bit to do on this it'll




213

00:14:07,159 --> 00:14:09,209

probably be definitely a year or two




214

00:14:09,409 --> 00:14:10,949

it'll take us to be able to get this




215

00:14:11,149 --> 00:14:13,409

barn fixed up but that's it guys thanks




216

00:14:13,610 --> 00:14:14,699

My wife is getting another goat, so I need to build another animal stall. That way we can keep her new goat separated from the rest of the goats. So, we are building a small animal stall in the lower level of our bank bank. We could use this stall as a birthing stall or just to house any small livestock.

1

00:00:07,429 --> 00:00:13,930

getting a fourth goat in like five days




4

00:00:25,439 --> 00:00:28,359

and it's gonna be a fainting goat and so




5

00:00:28,559 --> 00:00:30,728

she needs to keep it separated she needs




6

00:00:30,928 --> 00:00:32,099

to keep it separated from these goats




7

00:00:32,299 --> 00:00:36,279

for so many days so I've got to end up




8

00:00:36,479 --> 00:00:37,989

making another animal stall I need to




9

00:00:38,189 --> 00:00:40,719

get another you know animal stomas barn




10

00:00:40,920 --> 00:00:42,309

built today so that it's ready for




11

00:00:42,509 --> 00:00:46,178

Friday so I got a lot to do previously




12

00:00:46,378 --> 00:00:48,909

you see we've built we built this goat




13

00:00:49,109 --> 00:00:50,768

stall here this is like a double stall




14

00:00:50,969 --> 00:00:53,108

it's a birdie pretty big sized stall and




15

00:00:53,308 --> 00:00:55,358

I had this platform in here for the




16

00:00:55,558 --> 00:00:57,099

goats they'll climb on top of and lay on




17

00:00:57,299 --> 00:00:59,649

I'm not gonna do that in this next stall




18

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,209

this next stall is gonna be half the




19

00:01:01,409 --> 00:01:05,379

size it's gonna go basically it's gonna




20

00:01:05,579 --> 00:01:07,509

go right beside it it's gonna go in this




21

00:01:07,709 --> 00:01:11,619

location right here and so it's gonna be




22

00:01:11,819 --> 00:01:13,299

about half the size of the other sole




23

00:01:13,500 --> 00:01:17,500

and then on that back wall here on that




24

00:01:17,700 --> 00:01:19,750

back wall here where that concrete rail




25

00:01:19,950 --> 00:01:21,369

a box is I'm just going to cover that up




26

00:01:21,569 --> 00:01:23,409

with a board I'm not gonna build a




27

00:01:23,609 --> 00:01:26,319

platform in this stall but I'm gonna go




28

00:01:26,519 --> 00:01:27,700

ahead I'm going to do probably some of




29

00:01:27,900 --> 00:01:30,599

this goat and sheep panel on the side




30

00:01:30,799 --> 00:01:33,099

just like I did the other one and then




31

00:01:33,299 --> 00:01:35,289

I'll probably on the front of the stall




32

00:01:35,489 --> 00:01:37,140

I'll probably do something kind of solid




33

00:01:37,340 --> 00:01:39,549

like this other stall to try to get into




34

00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:42,668

the match but it's gonna be interesting




35

00:01:42,868 --> 00:01:44,890

in here today my wife has been working




36

00:01:45,090 --> 00:01:47,079

last weekend all weekend she works this




37

00:01:47,280 --> 00:01:52,269

weekend all weekend so basically I've




38

00:01:52,469 --> 00:01:54,250

been on my own the last couple weekends




39

00:01:54,450 --> 00:01:57,219

doing these projects so I'll be in here




40

00:01:57,420 --> 00:01:59,500

today with all these goats and all these




41

00:01:59,700 --> 00:02:01,659

chickens and it's gonna be dark and




42

00:02:01,859 --> 00:02:03,009

dreary in here today because it's dark




43

00:02:03,209 --> 00:02:05,590

and dreary outside I do have a couple of




44

00:02:05,790 --> 00:02:06,849

work lights not sure how long they'll




45

00:02:07,049 --> 00:02:08,890

work but I'm gonna go ahead and get




46

00:02:09,090 --> 00:02:11,320

tearing this old stall whatever the




47

00:02:11,520 --> 00:02:13,219

remnants of this old stall is right




48

00:02:13,419 --> 00:02:16,219

back here I'm gonna go ahead and tear




49

00:02:16,419 --> 00:02:18,560

that out and get started




50

00:02:18,759 --> 00:02:20,180

building a new stall hopefully I can get




51

00:02:20,379 --> 00:02:24,439

that done today and okay and hopefully




52

00:02:24,639 --> 00:02:27,050

these goats don't end up annoying me too




53

00:02:27,250 --> 00:02:29,200

much but we'll see how it goes




54

00:02:29,400 --> 00:02:31,550

hopefully today I can get this torn out




55

00:02:31,750 --> 00:02:33,770

and a new one built and it's in its




56

00:02:33,969 --> 00:02:35,689

place and there'll be ready for Friday




57

00:02:35,889 --> 00:02:38,360

for my wife to get her her new goat so




58

00:02:38,560 --> 00:02:40,368

she actually this ago is one I think she




59

00:02:40,568 --> 00:02:43,069

agreed to purchase first but she's been




60

00:02:43,269 --> 00:02:45,890

waiting for it to be weaned so I think




61

00:02:46,090 --> 00:02:48,439

she actually had this painting goat




62

00:02:48,639 --> 00:02:50,420

lined up to purchase before she even got




63

00:02:50,620 --> 00:02:52,340

he's Nigerian Dwarfs dibs




64

00:02:52,539 --> 00:02:55,880

so anyway I'm will go ahead and get




65

00:02:56,080 --> 00:02:57,770

started see if I can get some lights in




66

00:02:57,969 --> 00:03:00,349

here maybe help it up a little bit so




67

00:03:00,549 --> 00:03:03,110

slow as you see and see if I get this




68

00:03:03,310 --> 00:03:07,430

stall built today see this is what I'm




69

00:03:07,629 --> 00:03:09,319

gonna have to deal with all day long as




70

00:03:09,519 --> 00:03:13,420

you two are gonna be climbing on me yeah




71

00:03:13,620 --> 00:03:15,770

yes we're gonna want some kind of treat




72

00:03:15,969 --> 00:03:18,750

or some food




73

76

00:04:16,899 --> 00:04:20,370

well I was able to get this old stall




77

00:04:20,569 --> 00:04:21,960

ripped out pretty quick that probably




78

00:04:22,160 --> 00:04:25,110

took about 15 minutes or so and I'm




79

00:04:25,310 --> 00:04:26,550

gonna start building this stall I'm




80

00:04:26,750 --> 00:04:29,040

going to build it the same way as I did




81

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:31,439

the last stall so I started off around




82

00:04:31,639 --> 00:04:33,689

these metal posts and I'm going to wrap




83

00:04:33,889 --> 00:04:35,490

that with some wood so I'm going to put




84

00:04:35,689 --> 00:04:38,160

a two by six on the front and then a two




85

00:04:38,360 --> 00:04:40,470

by four on each side and that'll




86

00:04:40,670 --> 00:04:42,240

basically kind of wrap this post or




87

00:04:42,439 --> 00:04:43,439

giving me something to be able to build




88

00:04:43,639 --> 00:04:45,270

off of it's gonna basically look like




89

00:04:45,470 --> 00:04:47,160

this post right here this is the exact




90

00:04:47,360 --> 00:04:49,889

same thing so we'll go ahead and we'll




91

00:04:50,089 --> 00:04:52,259

start right here under this post and




92

00:04:52,459 --> 00:04:54,090

that would be the other corner of this




93

00:04:54,290 --> 00:04:56,550

stall and then we'll get building this




94

00:04:56,750 --> 00:04:57,900

wall here and then we'll get build on




95

00:04:58,100 --> 00:04:59,759

the front and hopefully it won't take




96

00:04:59,959 --> 00:05:01,030

very long




97

00:05:01,230 --> 00:05:17,670

107

00:08:10,360 --> 00:08:12,840

so I just finished the front here on




108

00:08:13,040 --> 00:08:14,970

this stall and it pretty much matches




109

00:08:15,170 --> 00:08:16,710

the other stall so it's all looking




110

00:08:16,910 --> 00:08:17,610

pretty good




111

00:08:17,810 --> 00:08:20,370

my last LED light just went out so I




112

00:08:20,569 --> 00:08:21,900

probably need to charge the lights




113

00:08:22,100 --> 00:08:24,840

probably need to stop for lunch when I




114

00:08:25,040 --> 00:08:26,819

come back I'll go ahead and build this




115

00:08:27,019 --> 00:08:29,910

gate here this ain't going to basically




116

00:08:30,110 --> 00:08:33,149

take the rough opening you know of this




117

00:08:33,350 --> 00:08:36,449

gate I'm basically just - about three




118

00:08:36,649 --> 00:08:38,279

inches off it make this gate about three




119

00:08:38,480 --> 00:08:40,349

inches smaller and then I'll leave me




120

00:08:40,549 --> 00:08:41,849

about inch and a half on each side




121

00:08:42,049 --> 00:08:44,069

that'll be enough room for the big gate




122

00:08:44,269 --> 00:08:47,399

hinges and the latch on this side that's




123

00:08:47,600 --> 00:08:50,529

what we doing next build the gate




124

00:08:50,730 --> 00:10:47,509

[Music]




125

00:10:47,710 --> 00:10:49,879

all right well I finally got done




126

00:10:50,080 --> 00:10:53,129

finishing this small animal stall here




127

00:10:53,330 --> 00:10:55,740

in the barn so we go we got our goat and




128

00:10:55,940 --> 00:10:57,809

sheep panel we got it here on the side




129

00:10:58,009 --> 00:10:59,759

we got it on the side exactly the same




130

00:10:59,960 --> 00:11:03,569

way we did on the goat stall and on the




131

00:11:03,769 --> 00:11:06,359

back of the this stall we didn't build a




132

00:11:06,559 --> 00:11:08,519

platform like the goats but we did have




133

00:11:08,720 --> 00:11:10,500

a concrete this short concrete block




134

00:11:10,700 --> 00:11:12,240

wall here and it has those holes in it




135

00:11:12,440 --> 00:11:14,549

so we got this board down to cover them




136

00:11:14,750 --> 00:11:17,069

holes up so that'll be a lot safer than




137

00:11:17,269 --> 00:11:19,139

an animal get their leg in there and




138

00:11:19,340 --> 00:11:22,979

twisting never hurt them but small goats




139

00:11:23,179 --> 00:11:24,539

and stuff like we have they'll be able




140

00:11:24,740 --> 00:11:26,639

to just climb on here no problem and




141

00:11:26,840 --> 00:11:28,439

they're probably even really small and




142

00:11:28,639 --> 00:11:30,120

we'll be able to lay up here I don't




143

00:11:30,320 --> 00:11:32,279

think without any issue at least the




144

00:11:32,480 --> 00:11:34,319

babies and I don't go probably isn't




145

00:11:34,519 --> 00:11:36,990

going to lay on here but I think the




146

00:11:37,190 --> 00:11:38,789

young goats would have no problems




147

00:11:38,990 --> 00:11:41,819

laying up there so we did end up hanging




148

00:11:42,019 --> 00:11:44,279

we did this same thing in the goats talk




149

00:11:44,480 --> 00:11:46,979

to we ended up hanging a bucket hanger




150

00:11:47,179 --> 00:11:49,740

on the side and then we have a bucket




151

00:11:49,940 --> 00:11:51,269

hanging in there this is a temporary




152

00:11:51,470 --> 00:11:53,519

bucket for now but we'll end up hanging




153

00:11:53,720 --> 00:11:57,539

it like a flat back bucket on here and




154

00:11:57,740 --> 00:11:59,519

that'll be how the water the goats or




155

00:11:59,720 --> 00:12:00,779

water the animals




156

00:12:00,980 --> 00:12:02,250

wherever animals we end up having in




157

00:12:02,450 --> 00:12:04,679

here I will probably end up building




158

00:12:04,879 --> 00:12:06,659

some type of a hay feeder it'll fight




159

00:12:06,860 --> 00:12:08,879

and be smaller let's put some kind of a




160

00:12:09,080 --> 00:12:12,269

hay feeder here on the side haven't done




161

00:12:12,470 --> 00:12:15,000

that yet still need to do that so since




162

00:12:15,200 --> 00:12:16,529

this is a smaller soil and I put in a




163

00:12:16,730 --> 00:12:18,750

mineral feeder over here actually on the




164

00:12:18,950 --> 00:12:20,189

side so we've got a mineral feeder down




165

00:12:20,389 --> 00:12:23,990

here on the side and the the other goat




166

00:12:24,190 --> 00:12:27,959

stall back here so this goat skull back




167

00:12:28,159 --> 00:12:30,419

here you can see we put a hang on bucket




168

00:12:30,620 --> 00:12:33,209

right there and then that is so we can




169

00:12:33,409 --> 00:12:36,120

feed just you know be able to give give




170

00:12:36,320 --> 00:12:37,829

a feed to the goats




171

00:12:38,029 --> 00:12:39,479

so we'll probably do something I'll




172

00:12:39,679 --> 00:12:40,889

probably end up putting a hang on bucket




173

00:12:41,090 --> 00:12:42,899

on this side as well so if we want to




174

00:12:43,100 --> 00:12:44,370

give them feed we can pour it in that




175

00:12:44,570 --> 00:12:48,659

bucket but anyway that's the that's the




176

00:12:48,860 --> 00:12:51,719

new small stall down here in the barn




177

00:12:51,919 --> 00:12:53,519

and now my wife can go get




178

00:12:53,720 --> 00:12:54,809

banging out that she's supposed to be




179

00:12:55,009 --> 00:12:56,789

purchasing so right now it's two days




180

00:12:56,990 --> 00:12:58,409

away from when she gets the fainting




181

00:12:58,610 --> 00:13:00,179

goat so I think we're we're pretty much




182

00:13:00,379 --> 00:13:01,620

set up in here we'll need to come up




183

00:13:01,820 --> 00:13:03,000

with some way to be able to feed her




184

00:13:03,200 --> 00:13:06,599

some hay but pretty much the skull is




185

00:13:06,799 --> 00:13:08,159

ready to go so she can get her new




186

00:13:08,360 --> 00:13:11,069

fainting goat so that's it guys I just




187

00:13:11,269 --> 00:13:12,089

wanted to show you




188

00:13:12,289 --> 00:13:13,799

we're continuing working down here in




189

00:13:14,000 --> 00:13:15,509

the barn trying to get stalls and get




190

00:13:15,710 --> 00:13:18,990

this entire bar made out so we still got




191

00:13:19,190 --> 00:13:21,029

some more stuff to do down here we will




192

00:13:21,230 --> 00:13:23,250

eventually end up kind of walling off




193

00:13:23,450 --> 00:13:25,559

that back section on that side so that




194

00:13:25,759 --> 00:13:27,209

we can keep our feed stored and




195

00:13:27,409 --> 00:13:29,429

everything away where the animals won't




196

00:13:29,629 --> 00:13:32,009

be able to get to it and we still are




197

00:13:32,210 --> 00:13:33,839

gonna build at least one more stall down




198

00:13:34,039 --> 00:13:37,679

here we similar this stall like this but




199

00:13:37,879 --> 00:13:39,329

I think I'm going to totally and close




200

00:13:39,529 --> 00:13:41,039

it with fencing so I can use it as a




201

00:13:41,240 --> 00:13:45,659

breeder if I want to and I that's that's




202

00:13:45,860 --> 00:13:47,069

right now what we got playing down here




203

00:13:47,269 --> 00:13:49,409

so if you're interested in watching us




204

00:13:49,610 --> 00:13:51,240

kind of fix this old barn up eventually




205

00:13:51,440 --> 00:13:53,399

we will get to putting electricity water




206

00:13:53,600 --> 00:13:55,349

will eventually get the painting outside




207

00:13:55,549 --> 00:13:57,839

trying to fix more structural issues




208

00:13:58,039 --> 00:13:59,609

we've got some more posts on the




209

00:13:59,809 --> 00:14:01,649

upstairs part that we need to fix




210

00:14:01,850 --> 00:14:03,599

there's some other structural part parts




211

00:14:03,799 --> 00:14:05,250

that we need to fix on the upstairs so




212

00:14:05,450 --> 00:14:06,959

there's quite a bit to do on this it'll




213

00:14:07,159 --> 00:14:09,209

probably be definitely a year or two




214

00:14:09,409 --> 00:14:10,949

it'll take us to be able to get this




215

00:14:11,149 --> 00:14:13,409

barn fixed up but that's it guys thanks




216

00:14:13,610 --> 00:14:14,699

00:00:29,618 --> 00:00:31,609

I've been successful so far this weekend




16

00:00:31,809 --> 00:00:34,128

we'll probably put that to the test and




17

00:00:34,329 --> 00:00:36,469

so we got a lot going on so tonight is a




18

00:00:36,670 --> 00:00:40,009

Thursday night 621 in the evening and




19

00:00:40,210 --> 00:00:42,318

we're on a road trip to go buy some more




20

00:00:42,518 --> 00:00:46,038

livestock so this opportunity actually




21

00:00:46,238 --> 00:00:49,248

just came up to a few days ago if we're




22

00:00:49,448 --> 00:00:51,459

kind of jumping on the opportunity and




23

00:00:51,659 --> 00:00:55,608

so what do you guys think we're getting




24

00:00:55,808 --> 00:00:56,658

tonight so we're gonna get some




25

00:00:56,859 --> 00:00:59,119

different livestock tonight so obviously




26

00:00:59,320 --> 00:01:01,038

the livestock is going to fit in this




27

00:01:01,238 --> 00:01:03,469

crate back here and I plan on getting




28

00:01:03,670 --> 00:01:05,869

probably two and bringing them home and




29

00:01:06,069 --> 00:01:07,299

this dog crate so they're gonna be young




30

00:01:07,500 --> 00:01:09,948

animals that we're gonna be bringing




31

00:01:10,149 --> 00:01:11,509

home so what do you guys think that is




32

00:01:11,709 --> 00:01:13,579

so we've we've talked about it in




33

00:01:13,780 --> 00:01:15,099

previous videos this is something that




34

00:01:15,299 --> 00:01:17,448

that I'd like to have to have on the




35

00:01:17,649 --> 00:01:19,239

homestead and




36

00:01:19,439 --> 00:01:20,799

if we were going to be able to get to it




37

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:25,390

this year so we're going to a farm at




38

00:01:25,590 --> 00:01:28,299

6:22 at night we're taking a road trip




39

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,859

about an hour way to a farm




40

00:01:30,060 --> 00:01:32,849

this guy's got probably 15 different




41

00:01:33,049 --> 00:01:35,439

young animals for us to pick from so




42

00:01:35,640 --> 00:01:37,030

we'll be able to get there we're gonna




43

00:01:37,230 --> 00:01:39,700

look through all these all his livestock




44

00:01:39,900 --> 00:01:41,649

and see if we can pick out a couple to




45

00:01:41,849 --> 00:01:44,019

bring home so what do you guys think




46

00:01:44,219 --> 00:01:46,299

we'll be bringing home tonight




47

00:01:46,500 --> 00:01:50,120

you guys will find out you second




48

00:01:58,819 --> 00:02:00,780

well we just got done picking up our new




49

00:02:00,980 --> 00:02:05,429

livestock it's in the cage behind me




50

00:02:05,629 --> 00:02:06,989

I don't know if you can hear it but




51

00:02:07,189 --> 00:02:10,640

anyway let's see what we got




52

00:02:10,840 --> 00:02:13,110

if you can see them they're hiding back




53

00:02:13,310 --> 00:02:18,420

there we ended up getting two pigs so we




54

00:02:18,620 --> 00:02:22,110

got to amp Shire cross pig they're kind




55

00:02:22,310 --> 00:02:24,210

of hiding back here see if I can show




56

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:26,969

them to you yeah so we ended up these




57

00:02:27,169 --> 00:02:28,770

are feeder pigs okay so we bought a




58

00:02:28,969 --> 00:02:31,110

couple feeder picks we're gonna raise




59

00:02:31,310 --> 00:02:33,509

these for meat and then at the end of




60

00:02:33,709 --> 00:02:35,430

the year we plan on butchering these so




61

00:02:35,629 --> 00:02:40,250

that is the purpose of these pigs but




62

00:02:40,449 --> 00:02:42,330

we're gonna hopefully raise those




63

00:02:42,530 --> 00:02:43,920

throughout the year and then by the end




64

00:02:44,120 --> 00:02:46,020

of the year we'll be able take those to




65

00:02:46,219 --> 00:02:47,730

the processor and and we'll have a bunch




66

00:02:47,930 --> 00:02:52,050

of meat for the freezer so these are a




67

00:02:52,250 --> 00:02:58,590

hamp shire cross pig and so I guess a




68

00:02:58,789 --> 00:03:00,030

Hampshire true a full-blooded




69

00:03:00,229 --> 00:03:01,910

Hampshire's black with a white belt




70

00:03:02,110 --> 00:03:04,770

through the middle of it and there was




71

00:03:04,969 --> 00:03:06,539

there was basically there was something




72

00:03:06,739 --> 00:03:07,969

looked like that there was two different




73

00:03:08,169 --> 00:03:10,319

there was two different litters of pigs




74

00:03:10,519 --> 00:03:13,980

there and so the ones I think they were




75

00:03:14,180 --> 00:03:15,569

belted I think they wanted the most out




76

00:03:15,769 --> 00:03:16,368

of them




77

00:03:16,568 --> 00:03:20,269

and these black ones here I think they




78

00:03:20,468 --> 00:03:21,080

were kind of the middle-of-the-road




79

00:03:21,280 --> 00:03:24,679

price I think and then they had some




80

00:03:24,878 --> 00:03:26,239

spotted pigs the spotted pigs were a




81

00:03:26,438 --> 00:03:29,480

little bit smaller but they were I guess




82

00:03:29,680 --> 00:03:32,450

the least favored in the color and




83

00:03:32,650 --> 00:03:33,679

everything but anyway they were the




84

00:03:33,878 --> 00:03:35,929

cheapest and of course I think they




85

00:03:36,128 --> 00:03:37,640

thought for meat pigs we should probably




86

00:03:37,840 --> 00:03:40,849

buy the cheapest one but and then we




87

00:03:41,049 --> 00:03:43,069

probably should buy the spotted but




88

00:03:43,269 --> 00:03:46,399

since since this is our first pigs and




89

00:03:46,598 --> 00:03:48,770

we've never raised him before these




90

00:03:48,969 --> 00:03:50,209

black ones ended up they ended up being




91

00:03:50,408 --> 00:03:52,879

bigger and so basically picked out the




92

00:03:53,079 --> 00:03:56,390

two bigger picks and if we wanted to get




93

00:03:56,590 --> 00:03:57,890

the probably the biggest and the




94

00:03:58,090 --> 00:04:00,530

hardiest looking pigs that they had so




95

00:04:00,729 --> 00:04:02,390

basically that move they don't prove our




96

00:04:02,590 --> 00:04:04,610

luck with pigs since this is our first




97

00:04:04,810 --> 00:04:07,730

time so they are already castrated and




98

00:04:07,930 --> 00:04:11,719

all basically ready to go anything I'm




99

00:04:11,919 --> 00:04:12,719

saying




100

00:04:12,919 --> 00:04:21,000

hey doctor tail doctor tails so they




101

00:04:21,199 --> 00:04:22,650

were yeah so they're basically ready to




102

00:04:22,850 --> 00:04:24,090

go we don't have to really do any of




103

00:04:24,290 --> 00:04:28,639

that so that was another good thing but




104

00:04:28,839 --> 00:04:31,379

we we ended up getting these it's kind




105

00:04:31,579 --> 00:04:32,670

of a spur-of-the-moment thing so we




106

00:04:32,870 --> 00:04:34,620

ended up getting these and we aren't




107

00:04:34,819 --> 00:04:37,379

really prepared for so we don't have a




108

00:04:37,579 --> 00:04:39,329

hog inmate or anything like that so I




109

00:04:39,529 --> 00:04:41,790

think it'll be fairly easy to make a pin




110

00:04:41,990 --> 00:04:44,850

for these two pigs but tonight what




111

00:04:45,050 --> 00:04:45,990

we're gonna do we're just gonna get home




112

00:04:46,189 --> 00:04:47,610

we're gonna put these and a little pin




113

00:04:47,810 --> 00:04:49,468

in the barn and we're just going to put




114

00:04:49,668 --> 00:04:51,270

them in the barn overnight and then




115

00:04:51,470 --> 00:04:52,829

hopefully tomorrow we'll kind of mow




116

00:04:53,029 --> 00:04:54,660

down an area clean up an area and then




117

00:04:54,860 --> 00:04:57,629

we'll fence in spot for these pigs




118

00:04:57,829 --> 00:04:59,550

so we'll probably fence it up a little




119

00:04:59,750 --> 00:05:01,730

area for the pigs with a little shelter




120

00:05:01,930 --> 00:05:04,770

put electric wire inside so they can get




121

00:05:04,970 --> 00:05:07,968

trained to the electric wire and then




122

00:05:08,168 --> 00:05:10,430

then another week or so down the road




123

00:05:10,629 --> 00:05:13,199

actually electric fence in quite a big




124

00:05:13,399 --> 00:05:15,600

area so they can kind of go around a




125

00:05:15,800 --> 00:05:18,090

group and have a nice bigger area to




126

00:05:18,290 --> 00:05:20,439

kind of roll around it




127

00:05:20,639 --> 00:05:22,329

right now we're not really prepared so




128

00:05:22,528 --> 00:05:25,838

we've got we've got to make a place for




129

00:05:26,038 --> 00:05:28,538

these pigs you know this weekend




130

00:05:28,738 --> 00:05:30,579

we've got fainting goat or pickup this




131

00:05:30,778 --> 00:05:33,399

weekend we've got the seed drill we got




132

00:05:33,598 --> 00:05:34,600

it written is we're going to plant a hay




133

00:05:34,800 --> 00:05:36,939

field this weekend we just got a lot of




134

00:05:37,139 --> 00:05:39,819

stuff going on this weekend we also got




135

00:05:40,019 --> 00:05:41,109

our raised bed garden we've pretty much




136

00:05:41,309 --> 00:05:42,850

got all our beds made I never got them




137

00:05:43,050 --> 00:05:45,100

filled with soil so I get a chance I'll




138

00:05:45,300 --> 00:05:47,049

be filling that with soil trying to get




139

00:05:47,249 --> 00:05:49,949

the more of the garden so busy weekend




140

00:05:50,149 --> 00:05:52,389

we got a question for you guys though so




141

00:05:52,588 --> 00:05:53,588

people are gonna say you shouldn't do




142

00:05:53,788 --> 00:05:53,829

this




143

00:05:54,028 --> 00:05:56,169

this is probably bad idea but we've




144

00:05:56,369 --> 00:05:58,899

named several of our animals and people




145

00:05:59,098 --> 00:06:00,369

Christ says you shouldn't make anything




146

00:06:00,569 --> 00:06:02,978

that you're gonna eat but anyway do you




147

00:06:03,178 --> 00:06:05,619

guys have any suggestions you know for




148

00:06:05,819 --> 00:06:08,919

for these little guys you know what




149

00:06:09,119 --> 00:06:10,329

their name should be I'm sure you guys




150

00:06:10,528 --> 00:06:13,499

could put some pretty funny suggestions




151

00:06:13,699 --> 00:06:15,669

leave it in the comments below if you




152

00:06:15,869 --> 00:06:21,100

got any ideas for these guys and maybe




153

00:06:21,300 --> 00:06:22,660

well you know we'll pick out a couple




154

00:06:22,860 --> 00:06:25,629

names for these pigs but I'm sure you




155

00:06:25,829 --> 00:06:29,100

guys will come up with something decent




156

00:06:29,300 --> 00:06:32,379

yeah name suggestions for these baked




157

00:06:32,579 --> 00:06:34,540

little bacon bits here in the back just




158

00:06:34,740 --> 00:06:37,389

just let us know and we'll pick a couple




159

00:06:37,588 --> 00:06:40,569

of them to name the pig anyway that's it




160

00:06:40,769 --> 00:06:42,910

guys this is the this is our new




161

00:06:43,110 --> 00:06:45,639

livestock on the homestead I think that




162

00:06:45,838 --> 00:06:47,019

these guys will be pretty entertaining




163

00:06:47,218 --> 00:06:50,410

to have and finally we'll have something




164

00:06:50,610 --> 00:06:53,309

that will just fall for it scraps so




165

00:06:53,509 --> 00:06:55,179

can't necessarily give everything




166

00:06:55,379 --> 00:06:57,100

probably to the chickens and the goats




167

00:06:57,300 --> 00:07:00,189

so now we actually have something that




168

00:07:00,389 --> 00:07:01,929

we can really throw the food scraps and




169

00:07:02,129 --> 00:07:04,468

everything to and they can eat it so a




170

00:07:04,668 --> 00:07:06,819

couple little garbage disposals back




171

00:07:07,019 --> 00:07:10,209

here so we're gonna go check on the pace




172

00:07:10,408 --> 00:07:12,489

this morning and when we picked up the




173

00:07:12,689 --> 00:07:14,619

pigs we weren't prepared at all - you




174

00:07:14,819 --> 00:07:16,629

know - how was the pigs so we ended up




175

00:07:16,829 --> 00:07:18,939

throwing together like a makeshift pin




176

00:07:19,139 --> 00:07:21,519

in the barn to keep the pigs in




177

00:07:21,718 --> 00:07:23,528

temporarily so it's just gonna be




178

00:07:23,728 --> 00:07:25,028

temporary that they're in the barn until




179

00:07:25,228 --> 00:07:26,829

we can actually make a pig pin out in




180

00:07:27,028 --> 00:07:28,778

the yard so we're gonna go check out the




181

00:07:28,978 --> 00:07:30,040

pigs this morning well show you what we




182

00:07:30,240 --> 00:07:32,528

got them the little pin we made form in




183

00:07:32,728 --> 00:07:34,149

a barn and we're gonna give them a




184

00:07:34,348 --> 00:07:36,309

little bit of milk replacer so we mixed




185

00:07:36,509 --> 00:07:41,199

up some milk replacer it is since




186

00:07:41,399 --> 00:07:42,309

they're only like three or four weeks




187

00:07:42,509 --> 00:07:45,429

old or they just got wings so this will




188

00:07:45,629 --> 00:07:46,778

help with being weaned and it also




189

00:07:46,978 --> 00:07:49,449

helped with the move coming out here




190

00:07:49,649 --> 00:07:50,980

it's pretty stressful coming to a new




191

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:54,040

location and so this is the milk




192

00:07:54,240 --> 00:07:56,499

replacer we're using you know milk




193

00:07:56,699 --> 00:07:58,569

it's got some probiotics in it so it




194

00:07:58,769 --> 00:08:00,429

also helped you know with an upset




195

00:08:00,629 --> 00:08:02,949

stomach with the tables or whatever so




196

00:08:03,149 --> 00:08:04,209

we're going to give them a little bit of




197

00:08:04,408 --> 00:08:14,649

that and no animals how's everybody




198

00:08:14,848 --> 00:08:17,209

doing




199

00:08:17,310 --> 00:08:23,199

I could AC all right so the pigs we made




200

00:08:23,399 --> 00:08:25,900

a little pin back here just down from




201

00:08:26,100 --> 00:08:28,449

the new stole that we made it's a little




202

00:08:28,649 --> 00:08:34,679

dark let me open up another door doing




203

00:08:34,879 --> 00:08:46,990

some of this bowl there you go big ones




204

00:08:47,190 --> 00:08:49,400

definitely




205

00:08:55,190 --> 00:09:05,919

I wish the light was better in here yeah




206

00:09:06,120 --> 00:09:09,990

I wish the light lighting was better I




207

00:09:10,190 --> 00:09:14,949

might do something so I had to grab a




208

00:09:15,149 --> 00:09:16,689

couple lights to be able to show you so




209

00:09:16,889 --> 00:09:18,429

next to this new stall that we just




210

00:09:18,629 --> 00:09:21,159

built we threw up like a cattle panel on




211

00:09:21,360 --> 00:09:23,199

the front and then we threw up some




212

00:09:23,399 --> 00:09:25,539

fencing back here and then that was a




213

00:09:25,740 --> 00:09:28,569

makeshift Pigpen so the two pigs there




214

00:09:28,769 --> 00:09:30,609

they're in the back I've already given




215

00:09:30,809 --> 00:09:32,620

their milk replacer they drink it for a




216

00:09:32,820 --> 00:09:35,349

little while but it was too dark to be




217

00:09:35,549 --> 00:09:37,629

able to show you but we got them here in




218

00:09:37,830 --> 00:09:41,709

this pin and basically just got it




219

00:09:41,909 --> 00:09:43,269

loaded up with a bunch of straw in here




220

00:09:43,470 --> 00:09:45,609

for them to lay down in and to root




221

00:09:45,809 --> 00:09:48,459

through but this is just this is just




222

00:09:48,659 --> 00:09:52,179

temporary until we get a pigpen actually




223

00:09:52,379 --> 00:09:55,059

built outside and hopefully we'll get




224

00:09:55,259 --> 00:09:57,159

one built here in a few days because




225

00:09:57,360 --> 00:09:59,799

these pigs are kind of messy they like




226

00:10:00,000 --> 00:10:02,199

to spill the water so we got water all




227

00:10:02,399 --> 00:10:04,419

over the ground in here from them




228

00:10:04,620 --> 00:10:06,729

spilling their water so we don't want to




229

00:10:06,929 --> 00:10:08,799

we don't want to keep them here in the




230

00:10:09,000 --> 00:10:11,500

barn very long so but there they are




231

00:10:11,700 --> 00:10:14,960

there's our new piggies




232

00:10:16,120 --> 00:10:20,459

they're cute right now but I think this




233

00:10:20,659 --> 00:10:24,899

will be fun fun raising pigs thanks for




234

00:10:25,100 --> 00:10:27,000

watching guys I better let these goats




235

00:10:27,200 --> 00:10:28,289

236

00:10:28,490 --> 00:10:33,490

1

00:00:00,140 --> 00:00:02,338

2

00:00:02,539 --> 00:00:04,469

weekend we got a lot of stuff going on a




3

00:00:04,669 --> 00:00:07,839

lot of plans this weekend

00:00:08,039 --> 00:00:09,850

actually took off work early today this

6

00:00:11,519 --> 00:00:13,450

weekend a little early I took off work

8

00:00:15,419 --> 00:00:16,000

afternoon




9

00:00:16,199 --> 00:00:18,560

get a jump start on weekend




10

00:00:18,760 --> 00:00:20,720

and we're gonna be so busy this weekend




11

00:00:20,920 --> 00:00:21,620

I think it's gonna be actually a little




12

00:00:21,820 --> 00:00:24,489

difficult maybe even get two videos




13

00:00:24,689 --> 00:00:27,440

completed and posted there trying to get




14

00:00:27,640 --> 00:00:29,419

two videos will be posted to YouTube and




15

00:00:29,618 --> 00:00:31,609

I've been successful so far this weekend




16

00:00:31,809 --> 00:00:34,128

we'll probably put that to the test and




17

00:00:34,329 --> 00:00:36,469

so we got a lot going on so tonight is a




18

00:00:36,670 --> 00:00:40,009

Thursday night 621 in the evening and




19

00:00:40,210 --> 00:00:42,318

we're on a road trip to go buy some more




20

00:00:42,518 --> 00:00:46,038

livestock so this opportunity actually




21

00:00:46,238 --> 00:00:49,248

just came up to a few days ago if we're




22

00:00:49,448 --> 00:00:51,459

kind of jumping on the opportunity and




23

00:00:51,659 --> 00:00:55,608

so what do you guys think we're getting




24

00:00:55,808 --> 00:00:56,658

tonight so we're gonna get some




25

00:00:56,859 --> 00:00:59,119

different livestock tonight so obviously




26

00:00:59,320 --> 00:01:01,038

the livestock is going to fit in this




27

00:01:01,238 --> 00:01:03,469

crate back here and I plan on getting




28

00:01:03,670 --> 00:01:05,869

probably two and bringing them home and




29

00:01:06,069 --> 00:01:07,299

this dog crate so they're gonna be young




30

00:01:07,500 --> 00:01:09,948

animals that we're gonna be bringing




31

00:01:10,149 --> 00:01:11,509

home so what do you guys think that is




32

00:01:11,709 --> 00:01:13,579

so we've we've talked about it in




33

00:01:13,780 --> 00:01:15,099

previous videos this is something that




34

00:01:15,299 --> 00:01:17,448

that I'd like to have to have on the




35

00:01:17,649 --> 00:01:19,239

homestead and




36

00:01:19,439 --> 00:01:20,799

if we were going to be able to get to it




37

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:25,390

this year so we're going to a farm at




38

00:01:25,590 --> 00:01:28,299

6:22 at night we're taking a road trip




39

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,859

about an hour way to a farm




40

00:01:30,060 --> 00:01:32,849

this guy's got probably 15 different




41

00:01:33,049 --> 00:01:35,439

young animals for us to pick from so




42

00:01:35,640 --> 00:01:37,030

we'll be able to get there we're gonna




43

00:01:37,230 --> 00:01:39,700

look through all these all his livestock




44

00:01:39,900 --> 00:01:41,649

and see if we can pick out a couple to




45

00:01:41,849 --> 00:01:44,019

bring home so what do you guys think




46

00:01:44,219 --> 00:01:46,299

we'll be bringing home tonight




47

00:01:46,500 --> 00:01:50,120

you guys will find out you second




48

00:01:58,819 --> 00:02:00,780

well we just got done picking up our new




49

00:02:00,980 --> 00:02:05,429

livestock it's in the cage behind me




50

00:02:05,629 --> 00:02:06,989

I don't know if you can hear it but




51

00:02:07,189 --> 00:02:10,640

anyway let's see what we got




52

00:02:10,840 --> 00:02:13,110

if you can see them they're hiding back




53

00:02:13,310 --> 00:02:18,420

there we ended up getting two pigs so we




54

00:02:18,620 --> 00:02:22,110

got to amp Shire cross pig they're kind




55

00:02:22,310 --> 00:02:24,210

of hiding back here see if I can show




56

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:26,969

them to you yeah so we ended up these




57

00:02:27,169 --> 00:02:28,770

are feeder pigs okay so we bought a




58

00:02:28,969 --> 00:02:31,110

couple feeder picks we're gonna raise




59

00:02:31,310 --> 00:02:33,509

these for meat and then at the end of




60

00:02:33,709 --> 00:02:35,430

the year we plan on butchering these so




61

00:02:35,629 --> 00:02:40,250

that is the purpose of these pigs but




62

00:02:40,449 --> 00:02:42,330

we're gonna hopefully raise those




63

00:02:42,530 --> 00:02:43,920

throughout the year and then by the end




64

00:02:44,120 --> 00:02:46,020

of the year we'll be able take those to




65

00:02:46,219 --> 00:02:47,730

the processor and and we'll have a bunch




66

00:02:47,930 --> 00:02:52,050

of meat for the freezer so these are a




67

00:02:52,250 --> 00:02:58,590

hamp shire cross pig and so I guess a




68

00:02:58,789 --> 00:03:00,030

Hampshire true a full-blooded




69

00:03:00,229 --> 00:03:01,910

Hampshire's black with a white belt




70

00:03:02,110 --> 00:03:04,770

through the middle of it and there was




71

00:03:04,969 --> 00:03:06,539

there was basically there was something




72

00:03:06,739 --> 00:03:07,969

looked like that there was two different




73

00:03:08,169 --> 00:03:10,319

there was two different litters of pigs




74

00:03:10,519 --> 00:03:13,980

there and so the ones I think they were




75

00:03:14,180 --> 00:03:15,569

belted I think they wanted the most out




76

00:03:15,769 --> 00:03:16,368

of them




77

00:03:16,568 --> 00:03:20,269

and these black ones here I think they




78

00:03:20,468 --> 00:03:21,080

were kind of the middle-of-the-road




79

00:03:21,280 --> 00:03:24,679

price I think and then they had some




80

00:03:24,878 --> 00:03:26,239

spotted pigs the spotted pigs were a




81

00:03:26,438 --> 00:03:29,480

little bit smaller but they were I guess




82

00:03:29,680 --> 00:03:32,450

the least favored in the color and




83

00:03:32,650 --> 00:03:33,679

everything but anyway they were the




84

00:03:33,878 --> 00:03:35,929

cheapest and of course I think they




85

00:03:36,128 --> 00:03:37,640

thought for meat pigs we should probably




86

00:03:37,840 --> 00:03:40,849

buy the cheapest one but and then we




87

00:03:41,049 --> 00:03:43,069

probably should buy the spotted but




88

00:03:43,269 --> 00:03:46,399

since since this is our first pigs and




89

00:03:46,598 --> 00:03:48,770

we've never raised him before these




90

00:03:48,969 --> 00:03:50,209

black ones ended up they ended up being




91

00:03:50,408 --> 00:03:52,879

bigger and so basically picked out the




92

00:03:53,079 --> 00:03:56,390

two bigger picks and if we wanted to get




93

00:03:56,590 --> 00:03:57,890

the probably the biggest and the




94

00:03:58,090 --> 00:04:00,530

hardiest looking pigs that they had so




95

00:04:00,729 --> 00:04:02,390

basically that move they don't prove our




96

00:04:02,590 --> 00:04:04,610

luck with pigs since this is our first




97

00:04:04,810 --> 00:04:07,730

time so they are already castrated and




98

00:04:07,930 --> 00:04:11,719

all basically ready to go anything I'm




99

00:04:11,919 --> 00:04:12,719

saying




100

00:04:12,919 --> 00:04:21,000

hey doctor tail doctor tails so they




101

00:04:21,199 --> 00:04:22,650

were yeah so they're basically ready to




102

00:04:22,850 --> 00:04:24,090

go we don't have to really do any of




103

00:04:24,290 --> 00:04:28,639

that so that was another good thing but




104

00:04:28,839 --> 00:04:31,379

we we ended up getting these it's kind




105

00:04:31,579 --> 00:04:32,670

of a spur-of-the-moment thing so we




106

00:04:32,870 --> 00:04:34,620

ended up getting these and we aren't




107

00:04:34,819 --> 00:04:37,379

really prepared for so we don't have a




108

00:04:37,579 --> 00:04:39,329

hog inmate or anything like that so I




109

00:04:39,529 --> 00:04:41,790

think it'll be fairly easy to make a pin




110

00:04:41,990 --> 00:04:44,850

for these two pigs but tonight what




111

00:04:45,050 --> 00:04:45,990

we're gonna do we're just gonna get home




112

00:04:46,189 --> 00:04:47,610

we're gonna put these and a little pin




113

00:04:47,810 --> 00:04:49,468

in the barn and we're just going to put




114

00:04:49,668 --> 00:04:51,270

them in the barn overnight and then




115

00:04:51,470 --> 00:04:52,829

hopefully tomorrow we'll kind of mow




116

00:04:53,029 --> 00:04:54,660

down an area clean up an area and then




117

00:04:54,860 --> 00:04:57,629

we'll fence in spot for these pigs




118

00:04:57,829 --> 00:04:59,550

so we'll probably fence it up a little




119

00:04:59,750 --> 00:05:01,730

area for the pigs with a little shelter




120

00:05:01,930 --> 00:05:04,770

put electric wire inside so they can get




121

00:05:04,970 --> 00:05:07,968

trained to the electric wire and then




122

00:05:08,168 --> 00:05:10,430

then another week or so down the road




123

00:05:10,629 --> 00:05:13,199

actually electric fence in quite a big




124

00:05:13,399 --> 00:05:15,600

area so they can kind of go around a




125

00:05:15,800 --> 00:05:18,090

group and have a nice bigger area to




126

00:05:18,290 --> 00:05:20,439

kind of roll around it




127

00:05:20,639 --> 00:05:22,329

right now we're not really prepared so




128

00:05:22,528 --> 00:05:25,838

we've got we've got to make a place for




129

00:05:26,038 --> 00:05:28,538

these pigs you know this weekend




130

00:05:28,738 --> 00:05:30,579

we've got fainting goat or pickup this




131

00:05:30,778 --> 00:05:33,399

weekend we've got the seed drill we got




132

00:05:33,598 --> 00:05:34,600

it written is we're going to plant a hay




133

00:05:34,800 --> 00:05:36,939

field this weekend we just got a lot of




134

00:05:37,139 --> 00:05:39,819

stuff going on this weekend we also got




135

00:05:40,019 --> 00:05:41,109

our raised bed garden we've pretty much




136

00:05:41,309 --> 00:05:42,850

got all our beds made I never got them




137

00:05:43,050 --> 00:05:45,100

filled with soil so I get a chance I'll




138

00:05:45,300 --> 00:05:47,049

be filling that with soil trying to get




139

00:05:47,249 --> 00:05:49,949

140

00:05:50,149 --> 00:05:52,389

we got a question for you guys though so




141

00:05:52,588 --> 00:05:53,588

people are gonna say you shouldn't do




142

00:05:53,788 --> 00:05:53,829

this




143

00:05:54,028 --> 00:05:56,169

this is probably bad idea but we've




144

00:05:56,369 --> 00:05:58,899

named several of our animals and people




145

00:05:59,098 --> 00:06:00,369

Christ says you shouldn't make anything




146

00:06:00,569 --> 00:06:02,978

that you're gonna eat but anyway do you




147

00:06:03,178 --> 00:06:05,619

guys have any suggestions you know for




148

00:06:05,819 --> 00:06:08,919

for these little guys you know what




149

00:06:09,119 --> 00:06:10,329

their name should be I'm sure you guys




150

00:06:10,528 --> 00:06:13,499

could put some pretty funny suggestions




151

00:06:13,699 --> 00:06:15,669

leave it in the comments below if you




152

00:06:15,869 --> 00:06:21,100

got any ideas for these guys and maybe




153

00:06:21,300 --> 00:06:22,660

well you know we'll pick out a couple




154

00:06:22,860 --> 00:06:25,629

names for these pigs but I'm sure you




155

00:06:25,829 --> 00:06:29,100

guys will come up with something decent




156

00:06:29,300 --> 00:06:32,379

yeah name suggestions for these baked




157

00:06:32,579 --> 00:06:34,540

little bacon bits here in the back just




158

00:06:34,740 --> 00:06:37,389

just let us know and we'll pick a couple




159

00:06:37,588 --> 00:06:40,569

of them to name the pig anyway that's it




160

00:06:40,769 --> 00:06:42,910

guys this is the this is our new




161

00:06:43,110 --> 00:06:45,639

livestock on the homestead I think that




162

00:06:45,838 --> 00:06:47,019

these guys will be pretty entertaining




163

00:06:47,218 --> 00:06:50,410

to have and finally we'll have something




164

00:06:50,610 --> 00:06:53,309

that will just fall for it scraps so




165

00:06:53,509 --> 00:06:55,179

can't necessarily give everything




166

00:06:55,379 --> 00:06:57,100

probably to the chickens and the goats




167

00:06:57,300 --> 00:07:00,189

so now we actually have something that




168

00:07:00,389 --> 00:07:01,929

we can really throw the food scraps and




169

00:07:02,129 --> 00:07:04,468

everything to and they can eat it so a




170

00:07:04,668 --> 00:07:06,819

couple little garbage disposals back




171

00:07:07,019 --> 00:07:10,209

here so we're gonna go check on the pace




172

00:07:10,408 --> 00:07:12,489

this morning and when we picked up the




173

00:07:12,689 --> 00:07:14,619

pigs we weren't prepared at all - you




174

00:07:14,819 --> 00:07:16,629

know - how was the pigs so we ended up




175

00:07:16,829 --> 00:07:18,939

throwing together like a makeshift pin




176

00:07:19,139 --> 00:07:21,519

in the barn to keep the pigs in




177

00:07:21,718 --> 00:07:23,528

temporarily so it's just gonna be




178

00:07:23,728 --> 00:07:25,028

temporary that they're in the barn until




179

00:07:25,228 --> 00:07:26,829

we can actually make a pig pin out in




180

00:07:27,028 --> 00:07:28,778

the yard so we're gonna go check out the




181

00:07:28,978 --> 00:07:30,040

pigs this morning well show you what we




182

00:07:30,240 --> 00:07:32,528

got them the little pin we made form in




183

00:07:32,728 --> 00:07:34,149

a barn and we're gonna give them a




184

00:07:34,348 --> 00:07:36,309

little bit of milk replacer so we mixed




185

00:07:36,509 --> 00:07:41,199

up some milk replacer it is since




186

00:07:41,399 --> 00:07:42,309

they're only like three or four weeks




187

00:07:42,509 --> 00:07:45,429

old or they just got wings so this will




188

00:07:45,629 --> 00:07:46,778

help with being weaned and it also




189

00:07:46,978 --> 00:07:49,449

helped with the move coming out here




190

00:07:49,649 --> 00:07:50,980

it's pretty stressful coming to a new




191

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:54,040

location and so this is the milk




192

00:07:54,240 --> 00:07:56,499

replacer we're using you know milk




193

00:07:56,699 --> 00:07:58,569

it's got some probiotics in it so it




194

00:07:58,769 --> 00:08:00,429

also helped you know with an upset




195

00:08:00,629 --> 00:08:02,949

stomach with the tables or whatever so




196

00:08:03,149 --> 00:08:04,209

we're going to give them a little bit of




197

00:08:04,408 --> 00:08:14,649

that and no animals how's everybody




198

00:08:14,848 --> 00:08:17,209

doing




199

00:08:17,310 --> 00:08:23,199

I could AC all right so the pigs we made




200

00:08:23,399 --> 00:08:25,900

a little pin back here just down from




201

00:08:26,100 --> 00:08:28,449

the new stole that we made it's a little




202

00:08:28,649 --> 00:08:34,679

dark let me open up another door doing




203

00:08:34,879 --> 00:08:46,990

some of this bowl there you go big ones




204

00:08:47,190 --> 00:08:49,400

definitely




205

00:08:55,190 --> 00:09:05,919

I wish the light was better in here yeah




206

00:09:06,120 --> 00:09:09,990

I wish the light lighting was better I




207

00:09:10,190 --> 00:09:14,949

might do something so I had to grab a




208

00:09:15,149 --> 00:09:16,689

couple lights to be able to show you so




209

00:09:16,889 --> 00:09:18,429

next to this new stall that we just




210

00:09:18,629 --> 00:09:21,159

built we threw up like a cattle panel on




211

00:09:21,360 --> 00:09:23,199

the front and then we threw up some




212

00:09:23,399 --> 00:09:25,539

fencing back here and then that was a




213

00:09:25,740 --> 00:09:28,569

makeshift Pigpen so the two pigs there




214

00:09:28,769 --> 00:09:30,609

they're in the back I've already given




215

00:09:30,809 --> 00:09:32,620

their milk replacer they drink it for a




216

00:09:32,820 --> 00:09:35,349

little while but it was too dark to be




217

00:09:35,549 --> 00:09:37,629

able to show you but we got them here in




218

00:09:37,830 --> 00:09:41,709

this pin and basically just got it




219

00:09:41,909 --> 00:09:43,269

loaded up with a bunch of straw in here




220

00:09:43,470 --> 00:09:45,609

for them to lay down in and to root




221

00:09:45,809 --> 00:09:48,459

through but this is just this is just




222

00:09:48,659 --> 00:09:52,179

temporary until we get a pigpen actually




223

00:09:52,379 --> 00:09:55,059

built outside and hopefully we'll get




224

00:09:55,259 --> 00:09:57,159

one built here in a few days because




225

00:09:57,360 --> 00:09:59,799

these pigs are kind of messy they like




226

00:10:00,000 --> 00:10:02,199

to spill the water so we got water all




227

00:10:02,399 --> 00:10:04,419

over the ground in here from them




228

00:10:04,620 --> 00:10:06,729

spilling their water so we don't want to




229

00:10:06,929 --> 00:10:08,799

we don't want to keep them here in the




230

00:10:09,000 --> 00:10:11,500

barn very long so but there they are




231

00:10:11,700 --> 00:10:14,960

there's our new piggies




232

00:10:16,120 --> 00:10:20,459

they're cute right now but I think this




233

00:10:20,659 --> 00:10:24,899

will be fun fun raising pigs thanks for




234

00:10:25,100 --> 00:10:27,000

watching guys I better let these goats




235

00:10:27,200 --> 00:10:28,289

out they're getting mad because I'm what




236

00:10:28,490 --> 00:10:33,490

1

00:00:00,140 --> 00:00:03,040

well today we're gonna end up we're




2

00:00:03,240 --> 00:00:04,689

gonna end up banding our a little




3

00:00:04,889 --> 00:00:07,240

buckling go this will be the first time




4

00:00:07,440 --> 00:00:10,359

that we've ever used the band cats




5

00:00:10,558 --> 00:00:15,460

trader on a goat and the so blue care




6

00:00:15,660 --> 00:00:18,129

he's actually nine weeks old so we made




7

00:00:18,329 --> 00:00:20,429

have may have waited a little too long




8

00:00:20,629 --> 00:00:24,159

the the person we bought him off I've




9

00:00:24,359 --> 00:00:26,949

said to do it at eight weeks and then




10

00:00:27,149 --> 00:00:28,720

when the vet came over they were




11

00:00:28,920 --> 00:00:30,760

probably a couple weeks old when the vet




12

00:00:30,960 --> 00:00:35,259

came over and checked him out and she




13

00:00:35,460 --> 00:00:37,739

said to just go ahead and do it now




14

00:00:37,939 --> 00:00:40,959

anyway we were a little worried we were




15

00:00:41,159 --> 00:00:44,198

a little worried that about having their




16

00:00:44,399 --> 00:00:47,890

tetanus and all that so the vet said




17

00:00:48,090 --> 00:00:50,018

that they have tetanus from being born




18

00:00:50,219 --> 00:00:52,659

from their mother but we went ahead and




19

00:00:52,859 --> 00:00:54,998

gave them a tetanus shot I think two or




20

00:00:55,198 --> 00:00:57,309

three weeks ago and now we're given the




21

00:00:57,509 --> 00:01:00,279

booster today and we'll go ahead and and




22

00:01:00,479 --> 00:01:02,108

bam him today I we were just trying to




23

00:01:02,308 --> 00:01:06,159

be I guess on the air of making sure




24

00:01:06,359 --> 00:01:08,918

that he you know had his tetanus vaccine




25

00:01:09,118 --> 00:01:12,399

this vaccination before we used to band




26

00:01:12,599 --> 00:01:15,459

castrator on so we're getting ready to




27

00:01:15,659 --> 00:01:18,250

give the booster shots and after that




28

00:01:18,450 --> 00:01:21,369

we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna put




29

00:01:21,569 --> 00:01:24,488

a rubber band on him so we'll see how




30

00:01:24,688 --> 00:01:25,629

this goes this will be their first time




31

00:01:25,829 --> 00:01:29,319

doing this so she's getting the shots




32

00:01:29,519 --> 00:01:33,078

ready machine getting their booster




33

00:01:34,319 --> 00:01:36,340

she said we're gonna put Gracie here




34

00:01:36,540 --> 00:01:38,439

we're gonna put mom let her in the stall




35

00:01:38,640 --> 00:01:40,989

Walker in there with some feet




36

00:01:41,189 --> 00:01:44,619

you don't some feet will be mess with




37

00:01:44,819 --> 00:01:51,429

their babies but you gotta lay yeah all




38

00:01:51,629 --> 00:02:58,990

right what are you gonna do this at all




39

00:02:59,189 --> 00:03:04,629

right where's Evander so we've got the




40

00:03:04,829 --> 00:03:06,310

we've got the band




41

00:03:06,509 --> 00:03:08,830

42

00:03:09,030 --> 00:03:11,200

take this rubber band here I'm going to




43

00:03:11,400 --> 00:03:13,390

stretch that out we'll put that over




44

00:03:13,590 --> 00:03:19,390

Luke's family jewels and then that all




45

00:03:19,590 --> 00:03:21,129

ended up making him a pretty calm goat




46

00:03:21,329 --> 00:03:23,368

for the rest of his life




47

00:03:23,568 --> 00:03:26,140

all right come here she's got cooking




48

00:03:26,340 --> 00:03:40,509

for you we waited quite a long time for




49

00:03:40,709 --> 00:03:42,330

this




50

00:03:42,530 --> 00:04:19,348

it's almost inside yeah down there buddy




51

00:04:19,548 --> 00:04:32,350

you're gonna like them cookies beckylyn




52

00:04:32,550 --> 00:04:39,250

he's phased it all made me hurt so




53

00:04:39,449 --> 00:04:41,920

comment comment is now allowed in the




54

00:04:42,120 --> 00:04:44,319

barn he does pretty good around the




55

00:04:44,519 --> 00:04:47,800

goats they're used to him Maggie not so




56

00:04:48,000 --> 00:04:50,259

much they don't like Maggie so but




57

00:04:50,459 --> 00:04:55,360

comets allowed in the barn well that




58

00:04:55,560 --> 00:04:57,579

actually went pretty good I was




59

00:04:57,779 --> 00:04:59,920

expecting I was expecting Luke to like




60

00:05:00,120 --> 00:05:02,290

you know fall over and lay on his side




61

00:05:02,490 --> 00:05:05,139

and mom a little bit I know I would have




62

00:05:05,339 --> 00:05:07,600

so but he just pretty much was unfazed




63

00:05:07,800 --> 00:05:09,939

by the whole situation just basically




64

00:05:10,139 --> 00:05:12,189

stood right up and started taking animal




65

00:05:12,389 --> 00:05:15,490

crackers so he's doing good well just




66

00:05:15,689 --> 00:05:16,600

let's keep an eye on him see how




67

00:05:16,800 --> 00:05:17,290

everything's going




68

00:05:17,490 --> 00:05:22,360

so we basically now who's gonna be so




69

00:05:22,560 --> 00:05:24,790

he'll be a weathered goat so once you




70

00:05:24,990 --> 00:05:26,528

castrating will be a weathered goat and




71

00:05:26,728 --> 00:05:29,139

he'll be a good companion either he can




72

00:05:29,339 --> 00:05:31,540

be a companion for the girls here if we




73

00:05:31,740 --> 00:05:32,220

get a buck he'll




74

00:05:32,420 --> 00:05:35,579

companion with the buck but we didn't




75

00:05:35,779 --> 00:05:39,750

want him you know brief greeting his




76

00:05:39,949 --> 00:05:42,540

sister or mom and they get mature at a




77

00:05:42,740 --> 00:05:44,340

young age so we needed to take care of




78

00:05:44,540 --> 00:05:47,939

that so he should be a pretty good pet




79

00:05:48,139 --> 00:05:51,240

now so he won't have the urges that he




80

00:05:51,439 --> 00:05:53,550

would have had so he should calm down




81

00:05:53,750 --> 00:05:54,689

quite a bit




82

00:05:54,889 --> 00:05:59,400

anyway way better than I thought well we




83

00:05:59,600 --> 00:06:02,160

are on our way to get my wife's third




84

00:06:02,360 --> 00:06:03,540

horse coat




85

00:06:03,740 --> 00:06:06,020

it's our fourth coat this is gonna be a




86

00:06:06,220 --> 00:06:08,520

painting goat with a cool painting goat




87

00:06:08,720 --> 00:06:12,569

it's a metonic goat so I guess if they




88

00:06:12,769 --> 00:06:15,750

get scared or loud noises or water or




89

00:06:15,949 --> 00:06:18,930

may cause them to kind of lock up and




90

00:06:19,129 --> 00:06:21,030

seem like maybe they faint they might




91

00:06:21,230 --> 00:06:27,389

fall over so anyway we're almost there




92

00:06:27,589 --> 00:06:31,079

and we'll have her new goat in just a




93

00:06:31,279 --> 00:06:33,819

second




94

00:06:35,050 --> 00:06:37,189

well we just picked up my wife's new




95

00:06:37,389 --> 00:06:40,629

goat so let me introduce you I




96

00:06:40,829 --> 00:06:42,730

introduced you this is Finney




97

00:06:42,930 --> 00:06:45,980

this is Finney she is the Finney the




98

00:06:46,180 --> 00:06:48,800

fainting goat so she is supposed to be




99

00:06:49,000 --> 00:06:50,869

pretty much the same age as the goats




100

00:06:51,069 --> 00:06:53,360

that we have the baby goats we have but




101

00:06:53,560 --> 00:06:56,149

to me she looks a lot smaller so she may




102

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:59,449

be even smaller than our Nigerian Dwarf




103

00:06:59,649 --> 00:07:02,929

dotes so but she may be a little bit




104

00:07:03,129 --> 00:07:05,360

wider because the metonic goats actually




105

00:07:05,560 --> 00:07:09,860

considered a meat goat so she's a she




106

00:07:10,060 --> 00:07:12,259

definitely does seem to be a little bit




107

00:07:12,459 --> 00:07:14,689

fatter than the other and the other




108

00:07:14,889 --> 00:07:19,009

goats but she's got blue eyes and she's




109

00:07:19,209 --> 00:07:22,699

she's white and black she's kind of like




110

00:07:22,899 --> 00:07:25,180

speckled white and black around the ears




111

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:29,519

but she's a cute little thing




112

00:07:29,718 --> 00:07:32,338

anyway we'll get her home and we're




113

00:07:32,538 --> 00:07:33,989

gonna go to we're gonna get her put in a




114

00:07:34,189 --> 00:07:35,968

stall in the barn separate and the other




115

00:07:36,168 --> 00:07:37,649

goats but should we arrive right next to




116

00:07:37,848 --> 00:07:38,338

the other goats




117

00:07:38,538 --> 00:07:40,228

so hopefully they'll get to know each




118

00:07:40,428 --> 00:07:42,088

other and they'll be able to kind of I




119

00:07:42,288 --> 00:07:44,788

guess kind of interact but yet stay




120

00:07:44,988 --> 00:07:47,498

separated




121

00:07:48,509 --> 00:07:49,569

that's what we're gonna do to get home




122

00:07:49,769 --> 00:07:51,549

see if we get her foot in the barn and




123

00:07:51,749 --> 00:07:55,879

then leave her separated for a few weeks




124

00:07:56,709 --> 00:07:59,400

[Music]




125

00:07:59,600 --> 00:08:10,389

your new neighbor over there obviously




126

00:08:10,589 --> 00:08:12,218

looking feeling very good singing trying




127

00:08:12,418 --> 00:08:29,199

to get up her so look after being bandit




128

00:08:29,399 --> 00:08:32,859

is not very energetic she actually




129

00:08:33,059 --> 00:08:35,468

doesn't even he's been laying around now




130

00:08:35,668 --> 00:08:39,578

most of the day I think that I think the




131

00:08:39,778 --> 00:08:42,929

banding is getting the best of him




132

00:08:43,129 --> 00:08:53,589

he's moving kind of slow yeah so I've




133

00:08:53,789 --> 00:08:55,569

got a light now out here on Finney so




134

00:08:55,769 --> 00:08:56,729

you can see her a little bit better




135

00:08:56,929 --> 00:08:59,799

she's got a bunch of white on the




136

00:09:00,000 --> 00:09:02,019

underneath side of her little white spot




137

00:09:02,220 --> 00:09:05,199

on her head and she's got some like




138

00:09:05,399 --> 00:09:08,349

white freckles around her ears but she




139

00:09:08,549 --> 00:09:12,639

got those nice blue eyes but she won't




140

00:09:12,839 --> 00:09:15,129

let us get very close to her she's still




141

00:09:15,330 --> 00:09:20,199

not still not comfortable we'll just




142

00:09:20,399 --> 00:09:21,879

have to give her some time to get used




143

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,560

to the place




144

00:09:25,309 --> 00:09:29,229

so here's the pigs seems like if they're




145

00:09:29,429 --> 00:09:30,819

not eating they're always laying back




146

00:09:31,019 --> 00:09:33,120

there at corner that's their little spot




147

00:09:33,320 --> 00:09:37,179

so we took their milk that we've been




148

00:09:37,379 --> 00:09:39,639

giving them we mixed that with some some




149

00:09:39,839 --> 00:09:42,269

food pellets kind of made like a little




150

00:09:42,470 --> 00:09:46,149

sloppy meal for them to eat and then we




151

00:09:46,350 --> 00:09:49,209

get also have put we put some sunflower




152

00:09:49,409 --> 00:09:52,750

seeds thrown them in here and they they




153

00:09:52,950 --> 00:09:54,578

basically route all the way through all




154

00:09:54,778 --> 00:09:56,769

this trying to find the sunflower seeds




155

00:09:56,970 --> 00:09:58,299

seed them so they like the sunflower




156

00:09:58,500 --> 00:10:04,750

seeds so my wife has got these pigs to




157

00:10:04,950 --> 00:10:07,508

eat these animal crackers out of her




158

00:10:07,708 --> 00:10:09,750

hands but they haven't ate at ammonia




159

00:10:09,950 --> 00:10:13,000

see if I can be in he's curious so this




160

00:10:13,200 --> 00:10:15,819

bigger Pig here he's very food driven so




161

00:10:16,019 --> 00:10:18,609

he's the easier one to get to come to




162

00:10:18,809 --> 00:10:23,049

you with food come on you went that you




163

00:10:23,250 --> 00:10:27,849

164

00:10:28,049 --> 00:10:30,189

165

00:10:30,389 --> 00:10:36,189

good job the other one is the scaredy




166

00:10:36,389 --> 00:10:36,729

other one beat you to it fight over it




171

00:10:52,700 --> 00:10:56,409

172

00:10:56,610 --> 00:10:59,409

173

00:10:59,610 --> 00:11:06,599

gonna figure out names for you still




176

00:11:11,870 --> 00:11:14,199

will be in an outside pin and we'll get




180

00:11:24,690 --> 00:11:28,959

00:11:29,159 --> 00:11:30,789

love it outside I know it you'll love




182

00:11:30,990 --> 00:11:37,370

being on dirt there's some more cookies




183

00:11:37,850 --> 00:11:45,339

there it is so yeah our animals ain't




184

00:11:45,539 --> 00:11:48,469

spoiled one bit




185

00:11:51,198 --> 00:11:54,389

Benny Benny you're stepping on the




186

00:11:54,589 --> 00:11:58,198

cookies I gave you the cookies they're




187

00:11:58,399 --> 00:12:01,258

on your under your right hoof back right




188

00:12:01,458 --> 00:12:03,149

hook Kenny come on there's the animal




189

00:12:03,350 --> 00:12:03,988

crackers




190

00:12:04,188 --> 00:12:06,738

right there you got to try them out




191

00:12:06,938 --> 00:12:10,548

everybody else loves animal crackers




192

00:12:10,749 --> 00:12:19,468

boy you are one shy goat very shy so we




193

00:12:19,668 --> 00:12:23,279

so we did end up getting a flat back




194

00:12:23,480 --> 00:12:25,678

rubber bucket to hang there and then for




195

00:12:25,879 --> 00:12:26,848

a hay feeder you can see I don't have a




196

00:12:27,048 --> 00:12:28,438

hay feeder here so we kind of come up




197

00:12:28,639 --> 00:12:30,508

with the cheap alternative with stuff we




198

00:12:30,708 --> 00:12:33,928

just had lying around and basically we




199

00:12:34,129 --> 00:12:37,889

just hung em old milk crate here on the




200

00:12:38,089 --> 00:12:39,688

on the side over here and filled it full




201

00:12:39,889 --> 00:12:41,519

of hay and then that's pretty much what




202

00:12:41,720 --> 00:12:43,709

she's eating right now is she was eat




203

00:12:43,909 --> 00:12:45,389

out of that and then the rubber bowl




204

00:12:45,589 --> 00:12:48,598

over there we're mixing some of the feed




205

00:12:48,798 --> 00:12:51,269

that she had at the from where we picked




206

00:12:51,470 --> 00:12:52,738

her up from and we're mixing that with




207

00:12:52,938 --> 00:12:55,168

some of our feed to try to get her used




208

00:12:55,369 --> 00:12:57,868

to you know slowly get used to the feed




209

00:12:58,068 --> 00:13:03,519

that we have but she's definitely




210

00:13:03,759 --> 00:13:07,348

definitely a shy goat doesn't know what




211

00:13:07,548 --> 00:13:08,578

to think of this place of course there's




212

00:13:08,778 --> 00:13:10,468

nobody none of the animals here she




213

00:13:10,668 --> 00:13:13,558

knows so I think it'll still take her a




214

00:13:13,759 --> 00:13:16,279

little while to get used to everybody oh




215

00:13:16,480 --> 00:13:21,538

oh oh I think I hear a little bit of




216

00:13:21,739 --> 00:13:24,389

thunder we got rain on the way so I'll




217

00:13:24,589 --> 00:13:26,578

probably cut this video short now so




218

00:13:26,778 --> 00:13:31,139

another thing about these pigs is they




219

00:13:31,339 --> 00:13:32,639

like to push their feed bowl and stuff




220

00:13:32,839 --> 00:13:34,409

like that around and we've been trying




221

00:13:34,610 --> 00:13:36,209

to keep it back away from the edge but




222

00:13:36,409 --> 00:13:38,188

if they end up pushing that feed bowl up




223

00:13:38,389 --> 00:13:40,348

to the fence then everything else in the




224

00:13:40,548 --> 00:13:42,118

barn ends I've eaten the goats will




225

00:13:42,318 --> 00:13:43,348

stick their heads through there trying




226

00:13:43,548 --> 00:13:45,178

to get to it the chickens will stick




227

00:13:45,379 --> 00:13:46,378

their heads through they're trying to




228

00:13:46,578 --> 00:13:50,728

get to it so hopefully we'll get these




229

00:13:50,928 --> 00:13:52,798

guys out of the barn and somewhere else




230

00:13:52,999 --> 00:13:53,968

so they can make their mess somewhere




231

00:13:54,168 --> 00:13:54,448

else




232

00:13:54,649 --> 00:13:57,149

but at least right now they're pretty




233

00:13:57,350 --> 00:14:00,048

small and easy to take care of but that




234

00:14:00,249 --> 00:14:02,938

will come soon we'll have a video making




235

00:14:03,139 --> 00:14:04,419

their pick pin form




236

00:14:04,620 --> 00:14:08,289

and setting them up out on dirt so but




237

00:14:08,490 --> 00:14:09,699

anyway that's it guys




238

00:14:09,899 --> 00:14:12,129

I better get inside before it starts




239

00:14:12,330 --> 00:14:18,069

raining so hey anything changes with it




240

00:14:18,269 --> 00:14:20,529

Luke I'll let you know but he's at least




241

00:14:20,730 --> 00:14:22,209

starting to act a little bit better so




242

00:14:22,409 --> 00:14:25,269

hopefully he's improving so anyway




243

00:14:25,470 --> 00:14:28,059

that's it guys that's our new that's our




244

1

00:00:00,140 --> 00:00:03,040

well today we're gonna end up we're




2

00:00:03,240 --> 00:00:04,689

gonna end up banding our a little




3

00:00:04,889 --> 00:00:07,240

buckling go this will be the first time




4

00:00:07,440 --> 00:00:10,359

that we've ever used the band cats




5

00:00:10,558 --> 00:00:15,460

trader on a goat and the so blue care




6

00:00:15,660 --> 00:00:18,129

he's actually nine weeks old so we made




7

00:00:18,329 --> 00:00:20,429

have may have waited a little too long




8

00:00:20,629 --> 00:00:24,159

the the person we bought him off I've




9

00:00:24,359 --> 00:00:26,949

said to do it at eight weeks and then




10

00:00:27,149 --> 00:00:28,720

when the vet came over they were




11

00:00:28,920 --> 00:00:30,760

probably a couple weeks old when the vet




12

00:00:30,960 --> 00:00:35,259

came over and checked him out and she




13

00:00:35,460 --> 00:00:37,739

said to just go ahead and do it now




14

00:00:37,939 --> 00:00:40,959

anyway we were a little worried we were




15

00:00:41,159 --> 00:00:44,198

a little worried that about having their




16

00:00:44,399 --> 00:00:47,890

tetanus and all that so the vet said




17

00:00:48,090 --> 00:00:50,018

that they have tetanus from being born




18

00:00:50,219 --> 00:00:52,659

from their mother but we went ahead and




19

00:00:52,859 --> 00:00:54,998

gave them a tetanus shot I think two or




20

00:00:55,198 --> 00:00:57,309

three weeks ago and now we're given the




21

00:00:57,509 --> 00:01:00,279

booster today and we'll go ahead and and




22

00:01:00,479 --> 00:01:02,108

bam him today I we were just trying to




23

00:01:02,308 --> 00:01:06,159

be I guess on the air of making sure




24

00:01:06,359 --> 00:01:08,918

that he you know had his tetanus vaccine




25

00:01:09,118 --> 00:01:12,399

this vaccination before we used to band




26

00:01:12,599 --> 00:01:15,459

castrator on so we're getting ready to




27

00:01:15,659 --> 00:01:18,250

give the booster shots and after that




28

00:01:18,450 --> 00:01:21,369

we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna put




29

00:01:21,569 --> 00:01:24,488

a rubber band on him so we'll see how




30

00:01:24,688 --> 00:01:25,629

this goes this will be their first time




31

00:01:25,829 --> 00:01:29,319

32

00:01:29,519 --> 00:01:33,078

ready machine getting their booster




33

00:01:34,319 --> 00:01:36,340

35

00:01:38,640 --> 00:01:40,989

36

00:01:41,189 --> 00:01:44,619

38

00:01:51,629 --> 00:02:58,990

stretch that out we'll put that over




44

00:03:13,590 --> 00:03:19,390

Luke's family jewels and then that all




45

00:03:19,590 --> 00:03:21,129

ended up making him a pretty calm goat




46

00:03:21,329 --> 00:03:23,368

for the rest of his life




47

00:03:23,568 --> 00:03:26,140

all right come here she's got cooking




48

00:03:26,340 --> 00:03:40,509

for you we waited quite a long time for




49

00:03:40,709 --> 00:03:42,330

this




50

00:03:42,530 --> 00:04:19,348

it's almost inside yeah down there buddy




51

00:04:19,548 --> 00:04:32,350

you're gonna like them cookies beckylyn




52

00:04:32,550 --> 00:04:39,250

he's phased it all made me hurt so




53

00:04:39,449 --> 00:04:41,920

comment comment is now allowed in the




54

00:04:42,120 --> 00:04:44,319

barn he does pretty good around the




55

00:04:44,519 --> 00:04:47,800

goats they're used to him Maggie not so




56

00:04:48,000 --> 00:04:50,259

much they don't like Maggie so but




57

00:04:50,459 --> 00:04:55,360

comets allowed in the barn well that




58

00:04:55,560 --> 00:04:57,579

actually went pretty good I was




59

00:04:57,779 --> 00:04:59,920

expecting I was expecting Luke to like




60

00:05:00,120 --> 00:05:02,290

you know fall over and lay on his side




61

00:05:02,490 --> 00:05:05,139

and mom a little bit I know I would have




62

00:05:05,339 --> 00:05:07,600

so but he just pretty much was unfazed




63

00:05:07,800 --> 00:05:09,939

by the whole situation just basically




64

00:05:10,139 --> 00:05:12,189

stood right up and started taking animal




65

00:05:12,389 --> 00:05:15,490

crackers so he's doing good well just




66

00:05:15,689 --> 00:05:16,600

let's keep an eye on him see how




67

00:05:16,800 --> 00:05:17,290

everything's going




68

00:05:17,490 --> 00:05:22,360

so we basically now who's gonna be so




69

00:05:22,560 --> 00:05:24,790

he'll be a weathered goat so once you




70

00:05:24,990 --> 00:05:26,528

castrating will be a weathered goat and




71

00:05:26,728 --> 00:05:29,139

he'll be a good companion either he can




72

00:05:29,339 --> 00:05:31,540

be a companion for the girls here if we




73

00:05:31,740 --> 00:05:32,220

get a buck he'll




74

00:05:32,420 --> 00:05:35,579

companion with the buck but we didn't




75

00:05:35,779 --> 00:05:39,750

want him you know brief greeting his




76

00:05:39,949 --> 00:05:42,540

sister or mom and they get mature at a




77

00:05:42,740 --> 00:05:44,340

young age so we needed to take care of




78

00:05:44,540 --> 00:05:47,939

that so he should be a pretty good pet




79

00:05:48,139 --> 00:05:51,240

now so he won't have the urges that he




80

00:05:51,439 --> 00:05:53,550

would have had so he should calm down




81

00:05:53,750 --> 00:05:54,689

quite a bit




82

00:05:54,889 --> 00:05:59,400

anyway way better than I thought well we




83

00:05:59,600 --> 00:06:02,160

are on our way to get my wife's third




84

00:06:02,360 --> 00:06:03,540

horse coat




85

00:06:03,740 --> 00:06:06,020

it's our fourth coat this is gonna be a




86

00:06:06,220 --> 00:06:08,520

painting goat with a cool painting goat




87

00:06:08,720 --> 00:06:12,569

it's a metonic goat so I guess if they




88

00:06:12,769 --> 00:06:15,750

get scared or loud noises or water or




89

00:06:15,949 --> 00:06:18,930

may cause them to kind of lock up and




90

00:06:19,129 --> 00:06:21,030

seem like maybe they faint they might




91

00:06:21,230 --> 00:06:27,389

fall over so anyway we're almost there




92

00:06:27,589 --> 00:06:31,079

and we'll have her new goat in just a




93

00:06:31,279 --> 00:06:33,819

second




94

00:06:35,050 --> 00:06:37,189

well we just picked up my wife's new




95

00:06:37,389 --> 00:06:40,629

goat so let me introduce you I




96

00:06:40,829 --> 00:06:42,730

introduced you this is Finney




97

00:06:42,930 --> 00:06:45,980

this is Finney she is the Finney the




98

00:06:46,180 --> 00:06:48,800

fainting goat so she is supposed to be




99

00:06:49,000 --> 00:06:50,869

pretty much the same age as the goats




100

00:06:51,069 --> 00:06:53,360

that we have the baby goats we have but




101

00:06:53,560 --> 00:06:56,149

to me she looks a lot smaller so she may




102

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:59,449

be even smaller than our Nigerian Dwarf




103

00:06:59,649 --> 00:07:02,929

dotes so but she may be a little bit




104

00:07:03,129 --> 00:07:05,360

wider because the metonic goats actually




105

00:07:05,560 --> 00:07:09,860

considered a meat goat so she's a she




106

00:07:10,060 --> 00:07:12,259

definitely does seem to be a little bit




107

00:07:12,459 --> 00:07:14,689

fatter than the other and the other




108

00:07:14,889 --> 00:07:19,009

goats but she's got blue eyes and she's




109

00:07:19,209 --> 00:07:22,699

she's white and black she's kind of like




110

00:07:22,899 --> 00:07:25,180

speckled white and black around the ears




111

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:29,519

but she's a cute little thing




112

00:07:29,718 --> 00:07:32,338

anyway we'll get her home and we're




113

00:07:32,538 --> 00:07:33,989

gonna go to we're gonna get her put in a




114

00:07:34,189 --> 00:07:35,968

stall in the barn separate and the other




115

00:07:36,168 --> 00:07:37,649

goats but should we arrive right next to




116

00:07:37,848 --> 00:07:38,338

the other goats




117

00:07:38,538 --> 00:07:40,228

so hopefully they'll get to know each




118

00:07:40,428 --> 00:07:42,088

other and they'll be able to kind of I




119

00:07:42,288 --> 00:07:44,788

guess kind of interact but yet stay




120

00:07:44,988 --> 00:07:47,498

separated




121

00:07:48,509 --> 00:07:49,569

that's what we're gonna do to get home




122

00:07:49,769 --> 00:07:51,549

see if we get her foot in the barn and




123

00:07:51,749 --> 00:07:55,879

then leave her separated for a few weeks




124

00:07:56,709 --> 00:07:59,400

[Music]




125

00:07:59,600 --> 00:08:10,389

your new neighbor over there obviously




126

00:08:10,589 --> 00:08:12,218

looking feeling very good singing trying




127

00:08:12,418 --> 00:08:29,199

to get up her so look after being bandit




128

00:08:29,399 --> 00:08:32,859

is not very energetic she actually




129

00:08:33,059 --> 00:08:35,468

doesn't even he's been laying around now




130

00:08:35,668 --> 00:08:39,578

most of the day I think that I think the




131

00:08:39,778 --> 00:08:42,929

banding is getting the best of him




132

00:08:43,129 --> 00:08:53,589

he's moving kind of slow yeah so I've




133

00:08:53,789 --> 00:08:55,569

got a light now out here on Finney so




134

00:08:55,769 --> 00:08:56,729

you can see her a little bit better




135

00:08:56,929 --> 00:08:59,799

she's got a bunch of white on the




136

00:09:00,000 --> 00:09:02,019

underneath side of her little white spot




137

00:09:02,220 --> 00:09:05,199

on her head and she's got some like




138

00:09:05,399 --> 00:09:08,349

white freckles around her ears but she




139

00:09:08,549 --> 00:09:12,639

got those nice blue eyes but she won't




140

00:09:12,839 --> 00:09:15,129

let us get very close to her she's still




141

00:09:15,330 --> 00:09:20,199

not still not comfortable we'll just




142

00:09:20,399 --> 00:09:21,879

have to give her some time to get used




143

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,560

to the place




144

00:09:25,309 --> 00:09:29,229

so here's the pigs seems like if they're




145

00:09:29,429 --> 00:09:30,819

not eating they're always laying back




146

00:09:31,019 --> 00:09:33,120

there at corner that's their little spot




147

00:09:33,320 --> 00:09:37,179

so we took their milk that we've been




148

00:09:37,379 --> 00:09:39,639

giving them we mixed that with some some




149

00:09:39,839 --> 00:09:42,269

food pellets kind of made like a little




150

00:09:42,470 --> 00:09:46,149

sloppy meal for them to eat and then we




151

00:09:46,350 --> 00:09:49,209

get also have put we put some sunflower




152

00:09:49,409 --> 00:09:52,750

seeds thrown them in here and they they




153

00:09:52,950 --> 00:09:54,578

basically route all the way through all




154

00:09:54,778 --> 00:09:56,769

this trying to find the sunflower seeds




155

00:09:56,970 --> 00:09:58,299

seed them so they like the sunflower




156

00:09:58,500 --> 00:10:04,750

seeds so my wife has got these pigs to




157

00:10:04,950 --> 00:10:07,508

eat these animal crackers out of her




158

00:10:07,708 --> 00:10:09,750

159

00:10:09,950 --> 00:10:13,000

see if I can be in he's curious so this




160

00:10:13,200 --> 00:10:15,819

bigger Pig here he's very food driven so




161

00:10:16,019 --> 00:10:18,609

162

00:10:18,809 --> 00:10:23,049

with the cheap alternative with stuff we




198

00:12:30,708 --> 00:12:33,928

just had lying around and basically we




199

00:12:34,129 --> 00:12:37,889

just hung em old milk crate here on the




200

00:12:38,089 --> 00:12:39,688

on the side over here and filled it full




201

00:12:39,889 --> 00:12:41,519

of hay and then that's pretty much what




202

00:12:41,720 --> 00:12:43,709

she's eating right now is she was eat




203

00:12:43,909 --> 00:12:45,389

out of that and then the rubber bowl




204

00:12:45,589 --> 00:12:48,598

over there we're mixing some of the feed




205

00:12:48,798 --> 00:12:51,269

that she had at the from where we picked




206

00:12:51,470 --> 00:12:52,738

her up from and we're mixing that with




207

00:12:52,938 --> 00:12:55,168

some of our feed to try to get her used




208

00:12:55,369 --> 00:12:57,868

to you know slowly get used to the feed




209

00:12:58,068 --> 00:13:03,519

that we have but she's definitely




210

00:13:03,759 --> 00:13:07,348

definitely a shy goat doesn't know what




211

00:13:07,548 --> 00:13:08,578

to think of this place of course there's




212

00:13:08,778 --> 00:13:10,468

nobody none of the animals here she




213

00:13:10,668 --> 00:13:13,558

knows so I think it'll still take her a




214

00:13:13,759 --> 00:13:16,279

little while to get used to everybody oh




215

00:13:16,480 --> 00:13:21,538

oh oh I think I hear a little bit of




216

00:13:21,739 --> 00:13:24,389

thunder we got rain on the way so I'll




217

00:13:24,589 --> 00:13:26,578

probably cut this video short now so




218

00:13:26,778 --> 00:13:31,139

another thing about these pigs is they




219

00:13:31,339 --> 00:13:32,639

like to push their feed bowl and stuff




220

00:13:32,839 --> 00:13:34,409

like that around and we've been trying




221

00:13:34,610 --> 00:13:36,209

to keep it back away from the edge but




222

00:13:36,409 --> 00:13:38,188

if they end up pushing that feed bowl up




223

00:13:38,389 --> 00:13:40,348

to the fence then everything else in the




224

00:13:40,548 --> 00:13:42,118

barn ends I've eaten the goats will




225

00:13:42,318 --> 00:13:43,348

stick their heads through there trying




226

00:13:43,548 --> 00:13:45,178

to get to it the chickens will stick




227

00:13:45,379 --> 00:13:46,378

their heads through they're trying to




228

00:13:46,578 --> 00:13:50,728

get to it so hopefully we'll get these




229

00:13:50,928 --> 00:13:52,798

guys out of the barn and somewhere else




230

00:13:52,999 --> 00:13:53,968

so they can make their mess somewhere




231

00:13:54,168 --> 00:13:54,448

else




232

00:13:54,649 --> 00:13:57,149

but at least right now they're pretty




233

00:13:57,350 --> 00:14:00,048

small and easy to take care of but that




234

00:14:00,249 --> 00:14:02,938

will come soon we'll have a video making




235

00:14:03,139 --> 00:14:04,419

their pick pin form




236

00:14:04,620 --> 00:14:08,289

and setting them up out on dirt so but




237

00:14:08,490 --> 00:14:09,699

anyway that's it guys




238

00:14:09,899 --> 00:14:12,129

I better get inside before it starts




239

00:14:12,330 --> 00:14:18,069

raining so hey anything changes with it




240

00:14:18,269 --> 00:14:20,529

Luke I'll let you know but he's at least




241

00:14:20,730 --> 00:14:22,209

starting to act a little bit better so




242

00:14:22,409 --> 00:14:25,269

hopefully he's improving so anyway




243

00:14:25,470 --> 00:14:28,059

that's it guys that's our new that's our




244

00:14:28,259 --> 00:14:28,959

new goat finis




245

00:14:29,159 --> 00:14:30,939

I think she'll she'll come around here




246

00:14:31,139 --> 00:14:33,309

eventually so thanks for watching guys




247

00:14:33,509 --> 00:14:38,509

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,749

hey guys how's it going I am so excited




2

00:00:01,949 --> 00:00:03,609

for today's project we are going to be




3

00:00:03,810 --> 00:00:05,828

planting up all 40 of these hay racks




4

00:00:06,028 --> 00:00:08,108

that run along the front of our fence




5

00:00:08,308 --> 00:00:10,600

line here we did this last year for the




6

00:00:10,800 --> 00:00:13,030

very first time and it was incredible we




7

00:00:13,230 --> 00:00:16,240

enjoyed it so much and I planted so many




8

00:00:16,440 --> 00:00:18,970

plants up here we had lemon coral sedum




9

00:00:19,170 --> 00:00:21,400

super bean a large lilac blue supertunia




10

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,620

royal magenta and supertunia Bordeaux it




11

00:00:23,820 --> 00:00:25,870

was a beautiful blend of plants but I




12

00:00:26,070 --> 00:00:28,239

think because it was the first year of




13

00:00:28,439 --> 00:00:29,560

the project I was so excited that I




14

00:00:29,760 --> 00:00:31,478

overkilled on how many plants I put any




15

00:00:31,678 --> 00:00:35,108

cherrick like I put 11 plants in each




16

00:00:35,308 --> 00:00:37,628

one of these hay racks which is probably




17

00:00:37,829 --> 00:00:39,939

a little bit too much so I'm taking a




18

00:00:40,140 --> 00:00:41,439

different approach this year in fact let




19

00:00:41,640 --> 00:00:43,479

me show you what I have planned in terms




20

00:00:43,679 --> 00:00:44,829

of plants we've got them in the back of




21

00:00:45,030 --> 00:00:47,259

the truck so I'm going to use a mixture




22

00:00:47,460 --> 00:00:48,788

of three different plants we've got




23

00:00:48,988 --> 00:00:50,858

supertunia vista bubble gum which is a




24

00:00:51,058 --> 00:00:53,259

favorite of mine we have supertunia




25

00:00:53,460 --> 00:00:54,338

vista silver berry




26

00:00:54,539 --> 00:00:56,739

and then a sweet caroline light green




27

00:00:56,939 --> 00:00:59,140

sweet potato vine so instead of 11




28

00:00:59,340 --> 00:01:01,959

plants I'm gonna use just 5 in each one




29

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:03,369

of these hay racks because I really




30

00:01:03,570 --> 00:01:06,189

wanted to show you guys how you can




31

00:01:06,390 --> 00:01:08,409

create something like this any type of




32

00:01:08,609 --> 00:01:10,149

project either in a container or in your




33

00:01:10,349 --> 00:01:12,310

landscape with huge impact for a lot




34

00:01:12,510 --> 00:01:14,379

less if you choose the right kind of




35

00:01:14,579 --> 00:01:16,959

plant and all of the supertunia Vista




36

00:01:17,159 --> 00:01:20,250

series they're amazingly vigorous




37

00:01:20,450 --> 00:01:22,750

they're just amazing plants and like no




38

00:01:22,950 --> 00:01:24,250

matter where I've planted them they




39

00:01:24,450 --> 00:01:26,980

always do really well and they grow huge




40

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:30,128

full of bloom so I've got all three of




41

00:01:30,328 --> 00:01:31,599

these plants kind of lined out in the




42

00:01:31,799 --> 00:01:33,369

basket because I wanted to show you kind




43

00:01:33,569 --> 00:01:35,469

of what I'm thinking in terms of layout




44

00:01:35,670 --> 00:01:37,390

so I'm going to start with a Vista




45

00:01:37,590 --> 00:01:38,950

silver berry on this side and then a




46

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:40,988

bubblegum my sweet potato vine will be




47

00:01:41,188 --> 00:01:43,058

in the middle here silver berry and then




48

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,399

bubblegum again so you'll notice that we




49

00:01:45,599 --> 00:01:47,980

already have soil this is fresh soil I




50

00:01:48,180 --> 00:01:50,558

brought a bag of it up here this is what




51

00:01:50,759 --> 00:01:52,959

they're full of just because this is




52

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:55,329

such a small reservoir I don't feel like




53

00:01:55,530 --> 00:01:57,189

I can recycle soil from last year




54

00:01:57,390 --> 00:01:59,079

because those plants utilize every last




55

00:01:59,280 --> 00:02:01,448

ounce in fact we will be adding




56

00:02:01,649 --> 00:02:03,278

fertilizer we fertilize on a weekly




57

00:02:03,478 --> 00:02:05,159

basis to keep the plants really happy




58

00:02:05,359 --> 00:02:07,959

annuals that you want to perform really




59

00:02:08,159 --> 00:02:10,300

big need quite a bit of food so I'm also




60

00:02:10,500 --> 00:02:12,340

I haven't done this yet today but I'm




61

00:02:12,539 --> 00:02:13,330

going to be adding in




62

00:02:13,530 --> 00:02:15,310

a slow-release plant food into the soil




63

00:02:15,509 --> 00:02:17,590

before I plant couple of other things I




64

00:02:17,789 --> 00:02:19,150

wanted to mention these are the same




65

00:02:19,349 --> 00:02:21,640

Coco fiber liners from last year there




66

00:02:21,840 --> 00:02:23,439

is a difference in quality you can find




67

00:02:23,639 --> 00:02:25,510

really thick ones or fairly thin ones




68

00:02:25,710 --> 00:02:27,700

spring for the thick ones because they




69

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:30,009

will last you for several years so these




70

00:02:30,209 --> 00:02:32,050

liners camera with the hay racks which




71

00:02:32,250 --> 00:02:33,790

were all sent to us by garden artisans




72

00:02:33,990 --> 00:02:35,830

last year and then I also wanted to




73

00:02:36,030 --> 00:02:37,540

mention the irrigation so we did run




74

00:02:37,740 --> 00:02:39,490

drip and I think when you're doing a




75

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:41,710

project especially of this size you want




76

00:02:41,909 --> 00:02:43,450

to make sure to have irrigation set up




77

00:02:43,650 --> 00:02:45,850

really for for anything if you can run




78

00:02:46,050 --> 00:02:47,770

drip to any of your containers it makes




79

00:02:47,969 --> 00:02:50,350

life so much easier but we did four to




80

00:02:50,550 --> 00:02:52,780

gallon per hour emitters per basket and




81

00:02:52,979 --> 00:02:55,330

in the spring we ran it for about 10 to




82

00:02:55,530 --> 00:02:56,890

15 minutes every day which is what we'll




83

00:02:57,090 --> 00:02:59,080

start with today and then as it gets




84

00:02:59,280 --> 00:03:00,939

warmer or if we have extra windy days




85

00:03:01,139 --> 00:03:03,130

we'll increase the amount of time so




86

00:03:03,330 --> 00:03:04,630

like last year when it was above




87

00:03:04,830 --> 00:03:07,810

probably I think above 90 we started




88

00:03:08,009 --> 00:03:09,430

running them twice a day so morning and




89

00:03:09,629 --> 00:03:11,439

evening for 15 minutes each time and our




90

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,469

plants were extremely extremely happy so




91

00:03:14,669 --> 00:03:16,150

let me go ahead and plant this one up




92

00:03:16,349 --> 00:03:18,069

just so I can show you guys how this




93

00:03:18,269 --> 00:03:19,689

whole thing is gonna go every single one




94

00:03:19,889 --> 00:03:21,160

of these hay racks would be planted




95

00:03:21,360 --> 00:03:23,560

exactly the same way I just want to give




96

00:03:23,759 --> 00:03:24,789

you guys a feel for it




97

00:03:24,989 --> 00:03:27,430

so in this hay rack I'm just gonna add a




98

00:03:27,629 --> 00:03:30,250

few tablespoons it's a brand new




99

00:03:30,449 --> 00:03:32,770

container a few tablespoons of this




100

00:03:32,969 --> 00:03:36,069

continuous release plant food and I'm




101

00:03:36,269 --> 00:03:38,050

just gonna work that in to the top layer




102

00:03:38,250 --> 00:03:40,420

of soil and I do have gloves for the




103

00:03:40,620 --> 00:03:41,920

rest of this project I just forgot to




104

00:03:42,120 --> 00:03:44,080

grab them I'll start with my Center




105

00:03:44,280 --> 00:03:45,610

plant that way I can make sure to get




106

00:03:45,810 --> 00:03:48,219

everything spaced proper so that's right




107

00:03:48,419 --> 00:03:50,110

here and I'm going to position these




108

00:03:50,310 --> 00:03:52,360

right in the center of the basket like




109

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:54,069

this because I'm hoping they'll trail




110

00:03:54,269 --> 00:03:56,920

back and on the front side so it's




111

00:03:57,120 --> 00:03:59,349

pretty on both sides okay we'll do the




112

00:03:59,549 --> 00:04:01,689

silver berry on this side just like that




113

00:04:01,889 --> 00:04:04,569

and these sweet potato vines so the




114

00:04:04,769 --> 00:04:06,160

difference last year I use lemon coral




115

00:04:06,360 --> 00:04:08,050

sedum which actually did really really




116

00:04:08,250 --> 00:04:10,629

good I was surprised with how much water




117

00:04:10,829 --> 00:04:13,030

it was getting it held up and it grew




118

00:04:13,229 --> 00:04:15,250

really nicely but they're not quite as




119

00:04:15,449 --> 00:04:17,800

vigorous as a potato vine so we didn't




120

00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:20,319

get that really strong foliage accent so




121

00:04:20,519 --> 00:04:22,509

I'm excited for that but you do have to




122

00:04:22,709 --> 00:04:24,850

be mindful these are water hungry plants




123

00:04:25,050 --> 00:04:26,540

they like to be moist




124

00:04:26,740 --> 00:04:28,069

quite a bit of the time so that's




125

00:04:28,269 --> 00:04:30,319

something else to consider when you're




126

00:04:30,519 --> 00:04:31,730

picking out plants if you have an




127

00:04:31,930 --> 00:04:33,230

irrigation setup to your pots it's no




128

00:04:33,430 --> 00:04:35,778

big deal but if you don't you might want




129

00:04:35,978 --> 00:04:38,240

to you know adjust accordingly also when




130

00:04:38,439 --> 00:04:39,710

you're picking out your plants it's good




131

00:04:39,910 --> 00:04:41,838

to consider the growth habit of all of




132

00:04:42,038 --> 00:04:43,850

the plants because like with the lemon




133

00:04:44,050 --> 00:04:45,559

curl like I said it did really well and




134

00:04:45,759 --> 00:04:47,569

it did but you couldn't see it very well




135

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,639

because all the other plants were so




136

00:04:49,839 --> 00:04:51,170

vigorous they were kind of growing over




137

00:04:51,370 --> 00:04:52,670

the top of it and if you came over and




138

00:04:52,870 --> 00:04:54,199

kind of spread those part plants apart




139

00:04:54,399 --> 00:04:55,790

you could see the lemon Coral they're




140

00:04:55,990 --> 00:04:58,309

just shining and looking beautiful but




141

00:04:58,509 --> 00:04:59,660

it's that's something to think about all




142

00:04:59,860 --> 00:05:01,100

of these plants kind of have the same




143

00:05:01,300 --> 00:05:02,959

vigor so I think they'll work really




144

00:05:03,158 --> 00:05:05,300

well together and so you'll be able to




145

00:05:05,500 --> 00:05:06,980

actually see our foliage accent this




146

00:05:07,180 --> 00:05:08,930

year okay so I think we're gonna set up




147

00:05:09,129 --> 00:05:10,730

a camera and just get a time-lapse of me




148

00:05:10,930 --> 00:05:12,319

planting the rest of these it's gonna




149

00:05:12,519 --> 00:05:13,939

look a lot faster than it happens in




150

00:05:14,139 --> 00:05:15,100

real life here we go




151

00:05:15,300 --> 00:05:42,399

[Music]




152

00:05:42,598 --> 00:05:45,129

oh my gosh you guys it turned out so




153

00:05:45,329 --> 00:05:46,989

pretty I mean if you would have told me




154

00:05:47,189 --> 00:05:48,639

even two years ago that I would be




155

00:05:48,838 --> 00:05:51,338

planting up 40 hay racks at my own house




156

00:05:51,538 --> 00:05:53,079

I would not have believed you




157

00:05:53,278 --> 00:05:55,149

this is just gonna be such a beautiful




158

00:05:55,348 --> 00:05:57,819

show and I think it could be scaled to




159

00:05:58,019 --> 00:06:00,009

any size whether you're doing one pot or




160

00:06:00,209 --> 00:06:03,338

one hay rack or ten or 40 or 100 you




161

00:06:03,538 --> 00:06:05,228

could kind of take these same planting




162

00:06:05,428 --> 00:06:07,209

principles and get the same results I




163

00:06:07,408 --> 00:06:09,028

think that this looks way more




164

00:06:09,228 --> 00:06:11,259

appropriately planted than it did last




165

00:06:11,459 --> 00:06:13,569

year to be completely honest I think




166

00:06:13,769 --> 00:06:15,759

that the plants will be happier they




167

00:06:15,959 --> 00:06:18,040

won't be in such hard competition with




168

00:06:18,240 --> 00:06:19,809

each other so that they'll be able to




169

00:06:20,009 --> 00:06:21,819

flourish a little bit more and the last




170

00:06:22,019 --> 00:06:23,528

thing that we're gonna do today is we're




171

00:06:23,728 --> 00:06:25,028

gonna plant up these large estate




172

00:06:25,228 --> 00:06:27,278

planters right here with some other fun




173

00:06:27,478 --> 00:06:29,519

stuff so vertigo Pennisetum you guys




174

00:06:29,718 --> 00:06:32,949

this is an amazing grass they grow so




175

00:06:33,149 --> 00:06:35,649

big in fact let me see four to four to




176

00:06:35,848 --> 00:06:38,230

eight feet so anywhere from four to




177

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:39,639

eight feet and I think that that depends




178

00:06:39,838 --> 00:06:41,199

on how much Sun it's getting and how




179

00:06:41,399 --> 00:06:43,359

much water it gets as well I think it'll




180

00:06:43,559 --> 00:06:45,879

get bigger with more of those two things




181

00:06:46,079 --> 00:06:48,338

I planted these in several spots last




182

00:06:48,538 --> 00:06:50,139

year and they just they were a




183

00:06:50,338 --> 00:06:52,359

spectacular grass so I decided I wanted




184

00:06:52,559 --> 00:06:54,069

to do it in these planters up here and




185

00:06:54,269 --> 00:06:55,718

then to break it up because it is a




186

00:06:55,918 --> 00:06:57,669

darker colored grass and the blades do




187

00:06:57,869 --> 00:07:00,009

get quite large as the plant grows it's




188

00:07:00,209 --> 00:07:02,049

got a really strappy appearance but I




189

00:07:02,249 --> 00:07:03,759

wanted to break up the dark grass with




190

00:07:03,959 --> 00:07:05,410

the dark pot with some really pretty fun




191

00:07:05,610 --> 00:07:07,540

color underneath and I'm also going for




192

00:07:07,740 --> 00:07:09,160

the same thing I'm using way fewer




193

00:07:09,360 --> 00:07:11,859

plants in here six supertunia Vista




194

00:07:12,059 --> 00:07:13,959

bubble gum just spaced as evenly as I




195

00:07:14,158 --> 00:07:14,468

could




196

00:07:14,668 --> 00:07:16,509

around the outer part and then this one




197

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,669

is exciting so I think this one's new




198

00:07:18,869 --> 00:07:20,109

this year it's called Diamond Mountain




199

00:07:20,309 --> 00:07:22,389

euphorbia you might recognize the name




200

00:07:22,588 --> 00:07:25,179

Diamond Frost which is very similar but




201

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:26,949

Diamond Frost is more of an accent plant




202

00:07:27,149 --> 00:07:29,499

it kind of grows and just like it's more




203

00:07:29,699 --> 00:07:31,809

of a wispy appearance this one grows 2




204

00:07:32,009 --> 00:07:35,290

to 3 feet tall and like 18 inch spread




205

00:07:35,490 --> 00:07:37,088

on them so I think it's gonna be a




206

00:07:37,288 --> 00:07:39,459

gorgeous stair-step effect will have the




207

00:07:39,658 --> 00:07:41,468

huge grass they're really pretty just




208

00:07:41,668 --> 00:07:44,499

kind of block of white and then the pink




209

00:07:44,699 --> 00:07:47,230

kind of Spiller supertunia down below so




210

00:07:47,430 --> 00:07:48,489

we've already filled these up with soil




211

00:07:48,689 --> 00:07:50,980

as well and then I put the slow release




212

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:53,528

fertilizer in so I am ready just to pop




213

00:07:53,728 --> 00:07:55,119

these all in and then we can get it




214

00:07:55,319 --> 00:07:56,340

overall look and




215

00:07:56,540 --> 00:07:59,730

we haven't shown yet is that there is




216

00:07:59,930 --> 00:08:01,980

kind of a repeat on the other side here




217

00:08:02,180 --> 00:08:04,139

we have the same container on this side




218

00:08:04,339 --> 00:08:05,910

of the opening and then we had room for




219

00:08:06,110 --> 00:08:08,340

one hay rack on this side and I thought




220

00:08:08,540 --> 00:08:09,750

it was important even though it's a




221

00:08:09,949 --> 00:08:11,670

little short section offense to kind of




222

00:08:11,870 --> 00:08:13,920

mirror what we had going on so it looked




223

00:08:14,120 --> 00:08:16,259

like a cohesive idea so I think what I'm




224

00:08:16,459 --> 00:08:17,639

gonna do is I'll just start right here




225

00:08:17,839 --> 00:08:20,799

and I'll get this one planted




226

00:08:22,160 --> 00:08:33,759

[Music]




227

00:08:33,960 --> 00:08:35,649

so there you have it they are all




228

00:08:35,849 --> 00:08:37,359

planted up for the season and I'm just




229

00:08:37,559 --> 00:08:39,759

so thrilled to see color I think it's




230

00:08:39,960 --> 00:08:42,129

gonna be just such a gorgeous show we




231

00:08:42,330 --> 00:08:43,659

did turn the water on just to test




232

00:08:43,860 --> 00:08:46,359

everything so you can see right here I




233

00:08:46,559 --> 00:08:48,549

have got an 8 to gallon per hour




234

00:08:48,750 --> 00:08:50,589

emitters dispersed fairly evenly




235

00:08:50,789 --> 00:08:51,939

throughout each one of these large




236

00:08:52,139 --> 00:08:54,129

containers and then on the hay racks




237

00:08:54,330 --> 00:08:56,229

here you can see kind of how they're




238

00:08:56,429 --> 00:08:57,819

running and see that water just coming




239

00:08:58,019 --> 00:09:00,698

out really nicely and we watch them




240

00:09:00,899 --> 00:09:02,679

pretty closely throughout the first




241

00:09:02,879 --> 00:09:04,179

atleast day or two that we're running




242

00:09:04,379 --> 00:09:05,349

the drips to make sure we don't have any




243

00:09:05,549 --> 00:09:08,319

leaks or any you know any problems any




244

00:09:08,519 --> 00:09:10,089

plugged in ITER's from the previous year




245

00:09:10,289 --> 00:09:12,429

because we leave this out all winter we




246

00:09:12,629 --> 00:09:13,839

don't have to put the drip system away




247

00:09:14,039 --> 00:09:16,328

because there's no water left in it all




248

00:09:16,528 --> 00:09:18,279

the water comes out of these right here




249

00:09:18,480 --> 00:09:20,409

so we just kind of look at them closely




250

00:09:20,610 --> 00:09:21,879

to make sure that nothing's happened




251

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,399

over the course of a winter so anyway I




252

00:09:24,600 --> 00:09:26,409

hope that these type of videos are




253

00:09:26,610 --> 00:09:28,059

helpful to you guys just to see what




254

00:09:28,259 --> 00:09:29,679

containers like this look like in the




255

00:09:29,879 --> 00:09:31,419

beginning while I think it looks




256

00:09:31,620 --> 00:09:34,029

absolutely beautiful I cannot wait to




257

00:09:34,230 --> 00:09:35,500

show you what they look like even a




258

00:09:35,700 --> 00:09:38,109

month or two from now so stay tuned for




259

00:09:38,309 --> 00:09:39,399

those videos we'll be doing lots of




260

00:09:39,600 --> 00:09:41,199

updates throughout the season thank you




261

00:09:41,399 --> 00:09:42,609

guys so much for watching and we will




262

00:09:42,809 --> 00:09:44,159

see you in the next video bye




263

00:09:44,360 --> 00:09:49,360

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,749

hey guys how's it going I am so excited




2

00:00:01,949 --> 00:00:03,609

for today's project we are going to be




3

00:00:03,810 --> 00:00:05,828

planting up all 40 of these hay racks




4

00:00:06,028 --> 00:00:08,108

that run along the front of our fence




5

00:00:08,308 --> 00:00:10,600

line here we did this last year for the




6

00:00:10,800 --> 00:00:13,030

very first time and it was incredible we




7

00:00:13,230 --> 00:00:16,240

enjoyed it so much and I planted so many




8

00:00:16,440 --> 00:00:18,970

plants up here we had lemon coral sedum




9

00:00:19,170 --> 00:00:21,400

super bean a large lilac blue supertunia




10

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,620

royal magenta and supertunia Bordeaux it




11

00:00:23,820 --> 00:00:25,870

was a beautiful blend of plants but I




12

00:00:26,070 --> 00:00:28,239

think because it was the first year of




13

00:00:28,439 --> 00:00:29,560

the project I was so excited that I




14

00:00:29,760 --> 00:00:31,478

overkilled on how many plants I put any




15

00:00:31,678 --> 00:00:35,108

cherrick like I put 11 plants in each




16

00:00:35,308 --> 00:00:37,628

one of these hay racks which is probably




17

00:00:37,829 --> 00:00:39,939

a little bit too much so I'm taking a




18

00:00:40,140 --> 00:00:41,439

different approach this year in fact let




19

00:00:41,640 --> 00:00:43,479

me show you what I have planned in terms




20

00:00:43,679 --> 00:00:44,829

of plants we've got them in the back of




21

00:00:45,030 --> 00:00:47,259

the truck so I'm going to use a mixture




22

00:00:47,460 --> 00:00:48,788

of three different plants we've got




23

00:00:48,988 --> 00:00:50,858

supertunia vista bubble gum which is a




24

00:00:51,058 --> 00:00:53,259

favorite of mine we have supertunia




25

00:00:53,460 --> 00:00:54,338

vista silver berry




26

00:00:54,539 --> 00:00:56,739

and then a sweet caroline light green




27

00:00:56,939 --> 00:00:59,140

sweet potato vine so instead of 11




28

00:00:59,340 --> 00:01:01,959

plants I'm gonna use just 5 in each one




29

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:03,369

of these hay racks because I really




30

00:01:03,570 --> 00:01:06,189

wanted to show you guys how you can




31

00:01:06,390 --> 00:01:08,409

create something like this any type of




32

00:01:08,609 --> 00:01:10,149

project either in a container or in your




33

00:01:10,349 --> 00:01:12,310

landscape with huge impact for a lot




34

00:01:12,510 --> 00:01:14,379

less if you choose the right kind of




35

00:01:14,579 --> 00:01:16,959

plant and all of the supertunia Vista




36

00:01:17,159 --> 00:01:20,250

series they're amazingly vigorous




37

00:01:20,450 --> 00:01:22,750

they're just amazing plants and like no




38

00:01:22,950 --> 00:01:24,250

matter where I've planted them they




39

00:01:24,450 --> 00:01:26,980

always do really well and they grow huge




40

00:01:27,180 --> 00:01:30,128

full of bloom so I've got all three of




41

00:01:30,328 --> 00:01:31,599

these plants kind of lined out in the




42

00:01:31,799 --> 00:01:33,369

basket because I wanted to show you kind




43

00:01:33,569 --> 00:01:35,469

of what I'm thinking in terms of layout




44

00:01:35,670 --> 00:01:37,390

so I'm going to start with a Vista




45

00:01:37,590 --> 00:01:38,950

silver berry on this side and then a




46

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:40,988

bubblegum my sweet potato vine will be




47

00:01:41,188 --> 00:01:43,058

in the middle here silver berry and then




48

00:01:43,259 --> 00:01:45,399

bubblegum again so you'll notice that we




49

00:01:45,599 --> 00:01:47,980

already have soil this is fresh soil I




50

00:01:48,180 --> 00:01:50,558

brought a bag of it up here this is what




51

00:01:50,759 --> 00:01:52,959

they're full of just because this is




52

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:55,329

such a small reservoir I don't feel like




53

00:01:55,530 --> 00:01:57,189

I can recycle soil from last year




54

00:01:57,390 --> 00:01:59,079

because those plants utilize every last




55

00:01:59,280 --> 00:02:01,448

ounce in fact we will be adding




56

00:02:01,649 --> 00:02:03,278

fertilizer we fertilize on a weekly




57

00:02:03,478 --> 00:02:05,159

basis to keep the plants really happy




58

00:02:05,359 --> 00:02:07,959

annuals that you want to perform really




59

00:02:08,159 --> 00:02:10,300

big need quite a bit of food so I'm also




60

00:02:10,500 --> 00:02:12,340

I haven't done this yet today but I'm




61

00:02:12,539 --> 00:02:13,330

going to be adding in




62

00:02:13,530 --> 00:02:15,310

a slow-release plant food into the soil




63

00:02:15,509 --> 00:02:17,590

before I plant couple of other things I




64

00:02:17,789 --> 00:02:19,150

wanted to mention these are the same




65

00:02:19,349 --> 00:02:21,640

Coco fiber liners from last year there




66

00:02:21,840 --> 00:02:23,439

is a difference in quality you can find




67

00:02:23,639 --> 00:02:25,510

really thick ones or fairly thin ones




68

00:02:25,710 --> 00:02:27,700

spring for the thick ones because they




69

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:30,009

will last you for several years so these




70

00:02:30,209 --> 00:02:32,050

liners camera with the hay racks which




71

00:02:32,250 --> 00:02:33,790

were all sent to us by garden artisans




72

00:02:33,990 --> 00:02:35,830

last year and then I also wanted to




73

00:02:36,030 --> 00:02:37,540

mention the irrigation so we did run




74

00:02:37,740 --> 00:02:39,490

drip and I think when you're doing a




75

00:02:39,689 --> 00:02:41,710

project especially of this size you want




76

00:02:41,909 --> 00:02:43,450

to make sure to have irrigation set up




77

00:02:43,650 --> 00:02:45,850

really for for anything if you can run




78

00:02:46,050 --> 00:02:47,770

drip to any of your containers it makes




79

00:02:47,969 --> 00:02:50,350

life so much easier but we did four to




80

00:02:50,550 --> 00:02:52,780

gallon per hour emitters per basket and




81

00:02:52,979 --> 00:02:55,330

in the spring we ran it for about 10 to




82

00:02:55,530 --> 00:02:56,890

15 minutes every day which is what we'll




83

00:02:57,090 --> 00:02:59,080

start with today and then as it gets




84

00:02:59,280 --> 00:03:00,939

warmer or if we have extra windy days




85

00:03:01,139 --> 00:03:03,130

we'll increase the amount of time so




86

00:03:03,330 --> 00:03:04,630

like last year when it was above




87

00:03:04,830 --> 00:03:07,810

probably I think above 90 we started




88

00:03:08,009 --> 00:03:09,430

running them twice a day so morning and




89

00:03:09,629 --> 00:03:11,439

evening for 15 minutes each time and our




90

00:03:11,639 --> 00:03:14,469

plants were extremely extremely happy so




91

00:03:14,669 --> 00:03:16,150

let me go ahead and plant this one up




92

00:03:16,349 --> 00:03:18,069

just so I can show you guys how this




93

00:03:18,269 --> 00:03:19,689

whole thing is gonna go every single one




94

00:03:19,889 --> 00:03:21,160

of these hay racks would be planted




95

00:03:21,360 --> 00:03:23,560

exactly the same way I just want to give




96

00:03:23,759 --> 00:03:24,789

you guys a feel for it




97

00:03:24,989 --> 00:03:27,430

so in this hay rack I'm just gonna add a




98

00:03:27,629 --> 00:03:30,250

few tablespoons it's a brand new




99

00:03:30,449 --> 00:03:32,770

container a few tablespoons of this




100

00:03:32,969 --> 00:03:36,069

continuous release plant food and I'm




101

00:03:36,269 --> 00:03:38,050

just gonna work that in to the top layer




102

00:03:38,250 --> 00:03:40,420

of soil and I do have gloves for the




103

00:03:40,620 --> 00:03:41,920

rest of this project I just forgot to




104

00:03:42,120 --> 00:03:44,080

grab them I'll start with my Center




105

00:03:44,280 --> 00:03:45,610

plant that way I can make sure to get




106

00:03:45,810 --> 00:03:48,219

everything spaced proper so that's right




107

00:03:48,419 --> 00:03:50,110

here and I'm going to position these




108

00:03:50,310 --> 00:03:52,360

right in the center of the basket like




109

00:03:52,560 --> 00:03:54,069

this because I'm hoping they'll trail




110

00:03:54,269 --> 00:03:56,920

back and on the front side so it's




111

00:03:57,120 --> 00:03:59,349

pretty on both sides okay we'll do the




112

00:03:59,549 --> 00:04:01,689

silver berry on this side just like that




113

00:04:01,889 --> 00:04:04,569

and these sweet potato vines so the




114

00:04:04,769 --> 00:04:06,160

difference last year I use lemon coral




115

00:04:06,360 --> 00:04:08,050

sedum which actually did really really




116

00:04:08,250 --> 00:04:10,629

good I was surprised with how much water




117

00:04:10,829 --> 00:04:13,030

it was getting it held up and it grew




118

00:04:13,229 --> 00:04:15,250

really nicely but they're not quite as




119

00:04:15,449 --> 00:04:17,800

vigorous as a potato vine so we didn't




120

00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:20,319

get that really strong foliage accent so




121

00:04:20,519 --> 00:04:22,509

I'm excited for that but you do have to




122

00:04:22,709 --> 00:04:24,850

be mindful these are water hungry plants




123

00:04:25,050 --> 00:04:26,540

they like to be moist




124

00:04:26,740 --> 00:04:28,069

quite a bit of the time so that's




125

00:04:28,269 --> 00:04:30,319

something else to consider when you're




126

00:04:30,519 --> 00:04:31,730

picking out plants if you have an




127

00:04:31,930 --> 00:04:33,230

irrigation setup to your pots it's no




128

00:04:33,430 --> 00:04:35,778

big deal but if you don't you might want




129

00:04:35,978 --> 00:04:38,240

to you know adjust accordingly also when




130

00:04:38,439 --> 00:04:39,710

you're picking out your plants it's good




131

00:04:39,910 --> 00:04:41,838

to consider the growth habit of all of




132

00:04:42,038 --> 00:04:43,850

the plants because like with the lemon




133

00:04:44,050 --> 00:04:45,559

curl like I said it did really well and




134

00:04:45,759 --> 00:04:47,569

it did but you couldn't see it very well




135

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,639

because all the other plants were so




136

00:04:49,839 --> 00:04:51,170

vigorous they were kind of growing over




137

00:04:51,370 --> 00:04:52,670

the top of it and if you came over and




138

00:04:52,870 --> 00:04:54,199

kind of spread those part plants apart




139

00:04:54,399 --> 00:04:55,790

you could see the lemon Coral they're




140

00:04:55,990 --> 00:04:58,309

just shining and looking beautiful but




141

00:04:58,509 --> 00:04:59,660

it's that's something to think about all




142

00:04:59,860 --> 00:05:01,100

of these plants kind of have the same




143

00:05:01,300 --> 00:05:02,959

vigor so I think they'll work really




144

00:05:03,158 --> 00:05:05,300

well together and so you'll be able to




145

00:05:05,500 --> 00:05:06,980

actually see our foliage accent this




146

00:05:07,180 --> 00:05:08,930

year okay so I think we're gonna set up




147

00:05:09,129 --> 00:05:10,730

a camera and just get a time-lapse of me




148

00:05:10,930 --> 00:05:12,319

planting the rest of these it's gonna




149

00:05:12,519 --> 00:05:13,939

look a lot faster than it happens in




150

00:05:14,139 --> 00:05:15,100

real life here we go




151

00:05:15,300 --> 00:05:42,399

[Music]




152

00:05:42,598 --> 00:05:45,129

oh my gosh you guys it turned out so




153

00:05:45,329 --> 00:05:46,989

pretty I mean if you would have told me




154

00:05:47,189 --> 00:05:48,639

even two years ago that I would be




155

00:05:48,838 --> 00:05:51,338

planting up 40 hay racks at my own house




156

00:05:51,538 --> 00:05:53,079

I would not have believed you




157

00:05:53,278 --> 00:05:55,149

this is just gonna be such a beautiful




158

00:05:55,348 --> 00:05:57,819

show and I think it could be scaled to




159

00:05:58,019 --> 00:06:00,009

any size whether you're doing one pot or




160

00:06:00,209 --> 00:06:03,338

one hay rack or ten or 40 or 100 you




161

00:06:03,538 --> 00:06:05,228

could kind of take these same planting




162

00:06:05,428 --> 00:06:07,209

principles and get the same results I




163

00:06:07,408 --> 00:06:09,028

think that this looks way more




164

00:06:09,228 --> 00:06:11,259

appropriately planted than it did last




165

00:06:11,459 --> 00:06:13,569

year to be completely honest I think




166

00:06:13,769 --> 00:06:15,759

that the plants will be happier they




167

00:06:15,959 --> 00:06:18,040

won't be in such hard competition with




168

00:06:18,240 --> 00:06:19,809

each other so that they'll be able to




169

00:06:20,009 --> 00:06:21,819

flourish a little bit more and the last




170

00:06:22,019 --> 00:06:23,528

thing that we're gonna do today is we're




171

00:06:23,728 --> 00:06:25,028

gonna plant up these large estate




172

00:06:25,228 --> 00:06:27,278

planters right here with some other fun




173

00:06:27,478 --> 00:06:29,519

stuff so vertigo Pennisetum you guys




174

00:06:29,718 --> 00:06:32,949

this is an amazing grass they grow so




175

00:06:33,149 --> 00:06:35,649

big in fact let me see four to four to




176

00:06:35,848 --> 00:06:38,230

eight feet so anywhere from four to




177

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:39,639

eight feet and I think that that depends




178

00:06:39,838 --> 00:06:41,199

on how much Sun it's getting and how




179

00:06:41,399 --> 00:06:43,359

much water it gets as well I think it'll




180

00:06:43,559 --> 00:06:45,879

get bigger with more of those two things




181

00:06:46,079 --> 00:06:48,338

I planted these in several spots last




182

00:06:48,538 --> 00:06:50,139

year and they just they were a




183

00:06:50,338 --> 00:06:52,359

spectacular grass so I decided I wanted




184

00:06:52,559 --> 00:06:54,069

to do it in these planters up here and




185

00:06:54,269 --> 00:06:55,718

then to break it up because it is a




186

00:06:55,918 --> 00:06:57,669

darker colored grass and the blades do




187

00:06:57,869 --> 00:07:00,009

get quite large as the plant grows it's




188

00:07:00,209 --> 00:07:02,049

got a really strappy appearance but I




189

00:07:02,249 --> 00:07:03,759

wanted to break up the dark grass with




190

00:07:03,959 --> 00:07:05,410

the dark pot with some really pretty fun




191

00:07:05,610 --> 00:07:07,540

color underneath and I'm also going for




192

00:07:07,740 --> 00:07:09,160

the same thing I'm using way fewer




193

00:07:09,360 --> 00:07:11,859

plants in here six supertunia Vista




194

00:07:12,059 --> 00:07:13,959

bubble gum just spaced as evenly as I




195

00:07:14,158 --> 00:07:14,468

could




196

00:07:14,668 --> 00:07:16,509

around the outer part and then this one




197

00:07:16,709 --> 00:07:18,669

is exciting so I think this one's new




198

00:07:18,869 --> 00:07:20,109

this year it's called Diamond Mountain




199

00:07:20,309 --> 00:07:22,389

euphorbia you might recognize the name




200

00:07:22,588 --> 00:07:25,179

Diamond Frost which is very similar but




201

00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:26,949

Diamond Frost is more of an accent plant




202

00:07:27,149 --> 00:07:29,499

it kind of grows and just like it's more




203

00:07:29,699 --> 00:07:31,809

of a wispy appearance this one grows 2




204

00:07:32,009 --> 00:07:35,290

to 3 feet tall and like 18 inch spread




205

00:07:35,490 --> 00:07:37,088

on them so I think it's gonna be a




206

00:07:37,288 --> 00:07:39,459

gorgeous stair-step effect will have the




207

00:07:39,658 --> 00:07:41,468

huge grass they're really pretty just




208

00:07:41,668 --> 00:07:44,499

kind of block of white and then the pink




209

00:07:44,699 --> 00:07:47,230

kind of Spiller supertunia down below so




210

00:07:47,430 --> 00:07:48,489

we've already filled these up with soil




211

00:07:48,689 --> 00:07:50,980

as well and then I put the slow release




212

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:53,528

fertilizer in so I am ready just to pop




213

00:07:53,728 --> 00:07:55,119

these all in and then we can get it




214

00:07:55,319 --> 00:07:56,340

overall look and




215

00:07:56,540 --> 00:07:59,730

we haven't shown yet is that there is




216

00:07:59,930 --> 00:08:01,980

kind of a repeat on the other side here




217

00:08:02,180 --> 00:08:04,139

we have the same container on this side




218

00:08:04,339 --> 00:08:05,910

of the opening and then we had room for




219

00:08:06,110 --> 00:08:08,340

one hay rack on this side and I thought




220

00:08:08,540 --> 00:08:09,750

it was important even though it's a




221

00:08:09,949 --> 00:08:11,670

little short section offense to kind of




222

00:08:11,870 --> 00:08:13,920

mirror what we had going on so it looked




223

00:08:14,120 --> 00:08:16,259

like a cohesive idea so I think what I'm




224

00:08:16,459 --> 00:08:17,639

gonna do is I'll just start right here




225

00:08:17,839 --> 00:08:20,799

and I'll get this one planted




226

00:08:22,160 --> 00:08:33,759

[Music]




227

00:08:33,960 --> 00:08:35,649

so there you have it they are all




228

00:08:35,849 --> 00:08:37,359

planted up for the season and I'm just




229

00:08:37,559 --> 00:08:39,759

so thrilled to see color I think it's




230

00:08:39,960 --> 00:08:42,129

gonna be just such a gorgeous show we




231

00:08:42,330 --> 00:08:43,659

did turn the water on just to test




232

00:08:43,860 --> 00:08:46,359

everything so you can see right here I




233

00:08:46,559 --> 00:08:48,549

have got an 8 to gallon per hour




234

00:08:48,750 --> 00:08:50,589

emitters dispersed fairly evenly




235

00:08:50,789 --> 00:08:51,939

throughout each one of these large




236

00:08:52,139 --> 00:08:54,129

containers and then on the hay racks




237

00:08:54,330 --> 00:08:56,229

here you can see kind of how they're




238

00:08:56,429 --> 00:08:57,819

running and see that water just coming




239

00:08:58,019 --> 00:09:00,698

out really nicely and we watch them




240

00:09:00,899 --> 00:09:02,679

pretty closely throughout the first




241

00:09:02,879 --> 00:09:04,179

atleast day or two that we're running




242

00:09:04,379 --> 00:09:05,349

the drips to make sure we don't have any




243

00:09:05,549 --> 00:09:08,319

leaks or any you know any problems any




244

00:09:08,519 --> 00:09:10,089

plugged in ITER's from the previous year




245

00:09:10,289 --> 00:09:12,429

because we leave this out all winter we




246

00:09:12,629 --> 00:09:13,839

don't have to put the drip system away




247

00:09:14,039 --> 00:09:16,328

because there's no water left in it all




248

00:09:16,528 --> 00:09:18,279

the water comes out of these right here




249

00:09:18,480 --> 00:09:20,409

so we just kind of look at them closely




250

00:09:20,610 --> 00:09:21,879

to make sure that nothing's happened




251

00:09:22,080 --> 00:09:24,399

over the course of a winter so anyway I




252

00:09:24,600 --> 00:09:26,409

hope that these type of videos are




253

00:09:26,610 --> 00:09:28,059

helpful to you guys just to see what




254

00:09:28,259 --> 00:09:29,679

containers like this look like in the




255

00:09:29,879 --> 00:09:31,419

beginning while I think it looks




256

00:09:31,620 --> 00:09:34,029

absolutely beautiful I cannot wait to




257

00:09:34,230 --> 00:09:35,500

show you what they look like even a




258

00:09:35,700 --> 00:09:38,109

month or two from now so stay tuned for




259

00:09:38,309 --> 00:09:39,399

those videos we'll be doing lots of




260

00:09:39,600 --> 00:09:41,199

updates throughout the season thank you




261

00:09:41,399 --> 00:09:42,609

guys so much for watching and we will




262

00:09:42,809 --> 00:09:44,159

see you in the next video bye

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,119

hey guys how's it going I'm getting




2

00:00:01,318 --> 00:00:02,738

ready to plant some gorgeous peonies in




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,389

my garden this morning and I just wanted




4

00:00:04,589 --> 00:00:06,519

to give you a few care tips because




5

00:00:06,719 --> 00:00:09,160

these are one of the most easy to grow




6

00:00:09,359 --> 00:00:10,720

flowers you can put in your garden and




7

00:00:10,919 --> 00:00:13,359

once they're established they last for




8

00:00:13,558 --> 00:00:16,539

years like decades long so they're just




9

00:00:16,739 --> 00:00:18,039

a wonderful one to have there are so




10

00:00:18,239 --> 00:00:20,289

many gorgeous peonies out there these




11

00:00:20,489 --> 00:00:21,820

are just starting to open but these




12

00:00:22,019 --> 00:00:24,249

flowers get huge and just beautiful for




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:26,199

cut flowers to bring inside or just to




14

00:00:26,399 --> 00:00:27,579

enjoy out in the garden so there are




15

00:00:27,778 --> 00:00:29,199

three main types of peonies there's




16

00:00:29,399 --> 00:00:30,728

herbaceous peonies which I'm going to be




17

00:00:30,928 --> 00:00:32,288

focusing on in this video because that's




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:34,000

what I'm planting they're the types that




19

00:00:34,200 --> 00:00:35,559

die back to the ground every fall and




20

00:00:35,759 --> 00:00:37,209

then the next spring they emerge with




21

00:00:37,409 --> 00:00:39,579

these beautiful red tinge stems and then




22

00:00:39,780 --> 00:00:41,619

they turn into this just beautiful small




23

00:00:41,820 --> 00:00:43,239

shrub in the garden full of flowers




24

00:00:43,439 --> 00:00:45,878

there are tree peonies which we've done




25

00:00:46,079 --> 00:00:47,799

a video on previously we will link that




26

00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:48,909

down below if you want to learn it a




27

00:00:49,109 --> 00:00:50,649

little bit more but basically they're a




28

00:00:50,850 --> 00:00:53,140

type of peeny that create a more woody




29

00:00:53,340 --> 00:00:56,378

stem above ground that stays intact so




30

00:00:56,579 --> 00:00:57,698

they lose their leaves in the fall but




31

00:00:57,899 --> 00:00:58,838

when they leaf out in the spring they'll




32

00:00:59,039 --> 00:01:01,088

leaf out on those stems and then there




33

00:01:01,289 --> 00:01:04,179

are ito peonies which are a hybrid cross




34

00:01:04,379 --> 00:01:06,310

between an herbaceous and the tree peony




35

00:01:06,510 --> 00:01:08,950

and the benefit of Ito's is that they




36

00:01:09,150 --> 00:01:11,109

are prolific bloomers and there are a




37

00:01:11,310 --> 00:01:13,090

ton of colors available so you can find




38

00:01:13,290 --> 00:01:14,890

potted peonies like these right here at




39

00:01:15,090 --> 00:01:16,209

your garden center most of the time in




40

00:01:16,409 --> 00:01:17,349

the spring you'll find a pretty good




41

00:01:17,549 --> 00:01:19,238

selection of them you might also be able




42

00:01:19,438 --> 00:01:22,119

to buy them as bare root or tubers and I




43

00:01:22,319 --> 00:01:23,738

believe the best time of the year to




44

00:01:23,938 --> 00:01:25,390

plant those is in the fall and it is




45

00:01:25,590 --> 00:01:27,250

spring now I have some tubers I'm going




46

00:01:27,450 --> 00:01:28,329

to plant in the ground but I figure




47

00:01:28,530 --> 00:01:29,679

they're better off planted in the ground




48

00:01:29,879 --> 00:01:31,929

now I've been hanging on to them until




49

00:01:32,129 --> 00:01:33,579

fall so I'll show you how to plant those




50

00:01:33,780 --> 00:01:36,128

roots in just a second these are super




51

00:01:36,328 --> 00:01:38,500

easy all we have to do is find a spot




52

00:01:38,700 --> 00:01:41,378

that gets full Sun a minimum of six to




53

00:01:41,578 --> 00:01:43,179

eight hours of Sun for them to perform




54

00:01:43,379 --> 00:01:45,668

the best they also like moist but really




55

00:01:45,868 --> 00:01:47,769

well draining soil and you want to give




56

00:01:47,969 --> 00:01:49,719

them a space that has good air flow so




57

00:01:49,920 --> 00:01:51,369

like this area right here I have a fence




58

00:01:51,569 --> 00:01:53,259

right behind me there's going to be just




59

00:01:53,459 --> 00:01:54,609

a little mini hedge I've got three




60

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,709

peonies back here they'll get plenty of




61

00:01:56,909 --> 00:01:58,448

air if they don't have enough air and




62

00:01:58,649 --> 00:02:00,340

you've got high humidity or it's a




63

00:02:00,540 --> 00:02:03,039

moister area they can suffer from




64

00:02:03,239 --> 00:02:04,689

powdery mildew or a fungus called




65

00:02:04,890 --> 00:02:07,000

botrytis those are the two most common




66

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:10,029

on peonies so just keep that in mind so




67

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:11,259

real quick let me just talk to you about




68

00:02:11,459 --> 00:02:12,969

this specific variety I'm planting this




69

00:02:13,169 --> 00:02:13,780

is called core




70

00:02:13,979 --> 00:02:16,209

old charm so like I said this one is




71

00:02:16,408 --> 00:02:18,189

just starting to open and they will get




72

00:02:18,389 --> 00:02:20,110

nice and big beautiful coral color




73

00:02:20,310 --> 00:02:22,719

they're a semi double and they are




74

00:02:22,919 --> 00:02:25,118

really Hardy Hardy down to negative 40




75

00:02:25,318 --> 00:02:28,149

degrees and they get to be like 28 30




76

00:02:28,348 --> 00:02:30,460

inches tall and about a 30 to 36 inch




77

00:02:30,659 --> 00:02:31,990

spread so I'm going to kind of plant




78

00:02:32,189 --> 00:02:34,240

them back from this little row of lilies




79

00:02:34,439 --> 00:02:35,860

right here to where they can kind of




80

00:02:36,060 --> 00:02:37,780

spill out into the driveway behind me I




81

00:02:37,979 --> 00:02:39,700

think that'll be really pretty to see




82

00:02:39,900 --> 00:02:41,679

those big bright bright pink blooms kind




83

00:02:41,878 --> 00:02:43,209

of emerging from underneath this white




84

00:02:43,408 --> 00:02:45,399

fence they do like a pretty fertile soil




85

00:02:45,598 --> 00:02:48,310

as well so today when I plant them I'm




86

00:02:48,509 --> 00:02:49,539

going to be adding in some bio tone




87

00:02:49,739 --> 00:02:51,129

starter fertilizer into each one of




88

00:02:51,329 --> 00:02:53,319

their holes and this is pretty good soil




89

00:02:53,519 --> 00:02:54,610

back here so I don't think I need to




90

00:02:54,810 --> 00:02:56,200

worry about anything else so let's get




91

00:02:56,400 --> 00:02:57,490

these three in the ground and then I'm




92

00:02:57,689 --> 00:02:59,710

going to talk about how to best support




93

00:02:59,909 --> 00:03:03,139

the plants with stakes




94

00:03:14,330 --> 00:03:30,660

[Music]




95

00:03:30,860 --> 00:03:32,550

okay so I got all three of these in the




96

00:03:32,750 --> 00:03:34,110

ground so I've got this one here there's




97

00:03:34,310 --> 00:03:35,550

this one that doesn't have any blooms on




98

00:03:35,750 --> 00:03:37,350

it currently and then that one right




99

00:03:37,550 --> 00:03:38,760

there I think that's gonna form a




100

00:03:38,960 --> 00:03:40,410

beautiful backdrop I've got like I said




101

00:03:40,610 --> 00:03:42,390

lily is that bloom yellow I've got a




102

00:03:42,590 --> 00:03:44,460

blue chiffon roses share and standard so




103

00:03:44,659 --> 00:03:45,960

these are my summer colors rubs




104

00:03:46,159 --> 00:03:47,910

including a butterfly bush over there a




105

00:03:48,110 --> 00:03:50,280

Miss violet so I've lots of summer color




106

00:03:50,479 --> 00:03:51,930

and I was lacking spring so this is




107

00:03:52,129 --> 00:03:53,820

gonna bring some beautiful spring color




108

00:03:54,020 --> 00:03:56,310

in from for years to come and before I




109

00:03:56,509 --> 00:03:58,230

move on to showing you guys how to plant




110

00:03:58,430 --> 00:04:00,960

the tubers of peonies I want to talk




111

00:04:01,159 --> 00:04:02,310

about staking so there are a couple




112

00:04:02,509 --> 00:04:03,990

different methods that are pretty common




113

00:04:04,189 --> 00:04:06,920

for staking peonies this one is probably




114

00:04:07,120 --> 00:04:09,390

one of the most common this is a peony




115

00:04:09,590 --> 00:04:12,060

ring it's much like a tomato cage but




116

00:04:12,259 --> 00:04:13,800

it's a little sturdier and it's wider




117

00:04:14,000 --> 00:04:15,900

and you can get these in multiple




118

00:04:16,100 --> 00:04:18,240

different sizes but I prefer a different




119

00:04:18,439 --> 00:04:19,889

type of stake I've got one right here




120

00:04:20,089 --> 00:04:21,960

this is called a grow through through




121

00:04:22,160 --> 00:04:24,509

grid ideally you would have these in




122

00:04:24,709 --> 00:04:26,370

place before the plant starts growing in




123

00:04:26,569 --> 00:04:28,740

the spring so as it grows it can grow up




124

00:04:28,939 --> 00:04:31,590

through the grid the reason I like these




125

00:04:31,790 --> 00:04:34,710

better than the hoops or the cages is




126

00:04:34,910 --> 00:04:37,110

that these hold up individual branches




127

00:04:37,310 --> 00:04:38,310

and more of an aesthetically pleasing




128

00:04:38,509 --> 00:04:41,280

Mound if they grow up through this type




129

00:04:41,480 --> 00:04:44,460

of staking system they'll still kind of




130

00:04:44,660 --> 00:04:46,259

tend to flop from the center if they've




131

00:04:46,459 --> 00:04:48,300

got huge blooms this one holds




132

00:04:48,500 --> 00:04:50,939

everything a little bit more just




133

00:04:51,139 --> 00:04:52,980

rounded so there's three stakes right




134

00:04:53,180 --> 00:04:55,829

here that you attach to the top of the




135

00:04:56,029 --> 00:04:58,020

grow through grid like this so I'm going




136

00:04:58,220 --> 00:05:00,420

to attempt to feed these blooms through




137

00:05:00,620 --> 00:05:02,460

just to kind of show you what it might




138

00:05:02,660 --> 00:05:04,110

look like I've got to do it anyway I've




139

00:05:04,310 --> 00:05:06,900

got to have the the grid going and these




140

00:05:07,100 --> 00:05:08,579

I just leave out I leave them out all




141

00:05:08,779 --> 00:05:10,680

winter long and they're just in place




142

00:05:10,879 --> 00:05:12,780

for when the peony starts growing the




143

00:05:12,980 --> 00:05:15,629

following spring oh I think I did it so




144

00:05:15,829 --> 00:05:17,910

see how that already holds that bloom up




145

00:05:18,110 --> 00:05:19,680

a little bit better and then I'm going




146

00:05:19,879 --> 00:05:21,090

to decide where I want my stakes and




147

00:05:21,290 --> 00:05:23,610

we'll put those in the ground they're




148

00:05:23,810 --> 00:05:28,259

really easy to use much like that and




149

00:05:28,459 --> 00:05:29,490

there are different sizes of these




150

00:05:29,689 --> 00:05:31,730

available as well so if you've got huge




151

00:05:31,930 --> 00:05:33,900

established peonies that are really big




152

00:05:34,100 --> 00:05:35,490

at the base you can get heavier-duty




153

00:05:35,689 --> 00:05:38,040

versions and you know I may have to do




154

00:05:38,240 --> 00:05:39,000

that eventually




155

00:05:39,199 --> 00:05:41,430

but these peonies don't get like so




156

00:05:41,629 --> 00:05:43,199

massive like some varieties do so I may




157

00:05:43,399 --> 00:05:44,579

be okay with this size




158

00:05:44,779 --> 00:05:45,600

so I'm going to go ahead and put my




159

00:05:45,800 --> 00:05:47,160

other two grids on and then we'll go




160

00:05:47,360 --> 00:05:50,170

plant the tubers




161

00:05:52,259 --> 00:05:54,040

so we're in the location where I want to




162

00:05:54,240 --> 00:05:55,600

plant the bare-root peonies which I have




163

00:05:55,800 --> 00:05:57,069

right here this is a variety called




164

00:05:57,269 --> 00:06:00,250

Laura desert and it's a beautiful fully




165

00:06:00,449 --> 00:06:02,259

double creamy white and creamy yellow




166

00:06:02,459 --> 00:06:03,939

peony and I thought it would be really




167

00:06:04,139 --> 00:06:06,460

beautiful right here this area looks




168

00:06:06,660 --> 00:06:08,170

Shady now because it is morning but it




169

00:06:08,370 --> 00:06:10,389

does get a really good long block of




170

00:06:10,589 --> 00:06:11,770

afternoon Sun so they should be very




171

00:06:11,970 --> 00:06:12,730

happy here




172

00:06:12,930 --> 00:06:15,280

and I am planting them kind of forward




173

00:06:15,480 --> 00:06:17,500

in this flowerbed because I do want to




174

00:06:17,699 --> 00:06:19,180

come in probably implant some climbing




175

00:06:19,379 --> 00:06:21,460

roses behind them so I wanted to leave a




176

00:06:21,660 --> 00:06:23,410

little bit of space so what you want to




177

00:06:23,610 --> 00:06:25,600

do to plant your bare root is make sure




178

00:06:25,800 --> 00:06:27,970

you find the highest bud on the crown so




179

00:06:28,170 --> 00:06:29,319

you can see the crown of the plant right




180

00:06:29,519 --> 00:06:31,930

here this is the highest bud right there




181

00:06:32,129 --> 00:06:33,280

we want to make sure that that sits




182

00:06:33,480 --> 00:06:35,170

about one to two inches below the soil




183

00:06:35,370 --> 00:06:35,920

surface




184

00:06:36,120 --> 00:06:38,230

if you plant it too deep it can delay




185

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:40,060

bloom time and it could also make the




186

00:06:40,259 --> 00:06:41,800

plant not bloom at all so you just want




187

00:06:42,000 --> 00:06:43,329

to be very mindful of that I've already




188

00:06:43,529 --> 00:06:45,280

dug up my hole you can see the soil




189

00:06:45,480 --> 00:06:47,860

right here is really pretty nice just




190

00:06:48,060 --> 00:06:49,689

perfect I'm gonna set my root down in




191

00:06:49,889 --> 00:06:51,490

there and you can see where the soil




192

00:06:51,689 --> 00:06:54,009

surface is it'll sit just about two




193

00:06:54,209 --> 00:06:56,050

inches below with the surface I'm gonna




194

00:06:56,250 --> 00:06:57,490

toss a little bit of starter fertilizer




195

00:06:57,689 --> 00:06:59,920

in right around the root and then just




196

00:07:00,120 --> 00:07:03,509

fill back the hole well tamp that down




197

00:07:03,709 --> 00:07:05,710

cover it back up with a little bit of




198

00:07:05,910 --> 00:07:08,020

mulch and before I get too far I'm gonna




199

00:07:08,220 --> 00:07:10,120

put my grid steak over it so I can




200

00:07:10,319 --> 00:07:11,500

remember that I have something planted




201

00:07:11,699 --> 00:07:13,840

here for the first thing and then once




202

00:07:14,040 --> 00:07:15,069

it starts growing the grid will be in




203

00:07:15,269 --> 00:07:18,709

place and I won't have to worry about it




204

00:07:22,430 --> 00:07:26,020

that looks pretty darn good okay so I've




205

00:07:26,220 --> 00:07:28,870

just got two more to plan




206

00:07:29,069 --> 00:07:43,699

[Music]




207

00:07:46,350 --> 00:07:56,050

[Music]




208

00:07:56,250 --> 00:07:58,400

so I got all three of these planted and




209

00:07:58,600 --> 00:07:59,629

I think they're gonna be gorgeous here




210

00:07:59,829 --> 00:08:01,340

especially once I get some roses and




211

00:08:01,540 --> 00:08:03,410

clematis growing right behind them there




212

00:08:03,610 --> 00:08:04,730

are a couple more things I want to talk




213

00:08:04,930 --> 00:08:05,930

to you about but I think I want to go




214

00:08:06,129 --> 00:08:07,879

back to the first peonies to talk to you




215

00:08:08,079 --> 00:08:08,960

about those things because I can




216

00:08:09,160 --> 00:08:10,639

actually show you on the plant so the




217

00:08:10,839 --> 00:08:12,620

first thing is when the peonies come out




218

00:08:12,819 --> 00:08:15,350

in bud in spring they do secrete a




219

00:08:15,550 --> 00:08:18,079

really sweet SAP out of the buds that




220

00:08:18,279 --> 00:08:20,480

ants and flies and bees are attracted to




221

00:08:20,680 --> 00:08:23,270

it does not harm the plant at all they




222

00:08:23,470 --> 00:08:24,980

just come up there to feed on it some




223

00:08:25,180 --> 00:08:26,600

people think it opens it helps to open




224

00:08:26,800 --> 00:08:28,250

the blooms I think that that is a myth




225

00:08:28,449 --> 00:08:29,960

but it doesn't hurt your plant




226

00:08:30,160 --> 00:08:32,059

whatsoever when you get ready to cut




227

00:08:32,259 --> 00:08:33,559

your peonies to bring them inside if you




228

00:08:33,759 --> 00:08:35,149

see any ants on them you can just rinse




229

00:08:35,350 --> 00:08:37,819

them off super easy the second thing is




230

00:08:38,019 --> 00:08:39,439

you do want to deadhead your peonies




231

00:08:39,639 --> 00:08:41,779

when the blooms are done that way the




232

00:08:41,980 --> 00:08:43,729

plant doesn't send energy into creating




233

00:08:43,929 --> 00:08:45,469

seeds because they do create it's kind




234

00:08:45,669 --> 00:08:47,719

of a neat looking seed pod but you don't




235

00:08:47,919 --> 00:08:49,039

want your plant sending energy into




236

00:08:49,240 --> 00:08:50,449

seeds you want it's sending energy




237

00:08:50,649 --> 00:08:52,490

rather into it's a root system so it can




238

00:08:52,690 --> 00:08:54,409

establish even more and create more




239

00:08:54,610 --> 00:08:56,269

flowers for the next year so when you




240

00:08:56,470 --> 00:08:58,009

get ready to deadhead it's really easy




241

00:08:58,210 --> 00:08:59,929

there's really no rhyme or reason to how




242

00:09:00,129 --> 00:09:01,909

far you cut back the stem but like on




243

00:09:02,110 --> 00:09:03,379

this one right here I'd probably cut it




244

00:09:03,580 --> 00:09:05,359

back right into the bushier part of the




245

00:09:05,559 --> 00:09:07,579

shrub that way you don't have a bear or




246

00:09:07,779 --> 00:09:09,709

random stem sticking up out further than




247

00:09:09,909 --> 00:09:11,000

the rest of the leaves you just want to




248

00:09:11,200 --> 00:09:12,549

make it look aesthetically pleasing




249

00:09:12,750 --> 00:09:15,740

third they are heavy feeders so like I




250

00:09:15,940 --> 00:09:17,599

put today some starter fertilizer in the




251

00:09:17,799 --> 00:09:19,370

hole usually after they get done




252

00:09:19,570 --> 00:09:20,959

blooming I'll toss some plant tonne




253

00:09:21,159 --> 00:09:22,759

fertilizer around the base of the shrub




254

00:09:22,960 --> 00:09:24,859

that way they can utilize that and build




255

00:09:25,059 --> 00:09:27,409

up the root system even more and then




256

00:09:27,610 --> 00:09:29,149

you do want to cut to the peonies back




257

00:09:29,350 --> 00:09:31,729

down to the ground in the fall after the




258

00:09:31,929 --> 00:09:33,259

first frost kind of takes their foliage




259

00:09:33,460 --> 00:09:35,839

so anyway that's all there is to peonies




260

00:09:36,039 --> 00:09:37,370

once you get them in the ground and you




261

00:09:37,570 --> 00:09:38,089

get them going




262

00:09:38,289 --> 00:09:40,309

it just is a beautiful thing to have in




263

00:09:40,509 --> 00:09:41,809

your garden so I hope this video was




264

00:09:42,009 --> 00:09:43,339

helpful you guys and we will see you in




265

00:09:43,539 --> 00:09:46,469

the next one bye




266

00:09:46,889 --> 00:09:51,889

[Music]
  view all
 


 
  
 
 
1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,119

hey guys how's it going I'm getting




2

00:00:01,318 --> 00:00:02,738

ready to plant some gorgeous peonies in




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,389

my garden this morning and I just wanted




4

00:00:04,589 --> 00:00:06,519

to give you a few care tips because




5

00:00:06,719 --> 00:00:09,160

these are one of the most easy to grow




6

00:00:09,359 --> 00:00:10,720

flowers you can put in your garden and




7

00:00:10,919 --> 00:00:13,359

once they're established they last for




8

00:00:13,558 --> 00:00:16,539

years like decades long so they're just




9

00:00:16,739 --> 00:00:18,039

a wonderful one to have there are so




10

00:00:18,239 --> 00:00:20,289

many gorgeous peonies out there these




11

00:00:20,489 --> 00:00:21,820

are just starting to open but these




12

00:00:22,019 --> 00:00:24,249

flowers get huge and just beautiful for




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:26,199

cut flowers to bring inside or just to




14

00:00:26,399 --> 00:00:27,579

enjoy out in the garden so there are




15

00:00:27,778 --> 00:00:29,199

three main types of peonies there's




16

00:00:29,399 --> 00:00:30,728

herbaceous peonies which I'm going to be




17

00:00:30,928 --> 00:00:32,288

focusing on in this video because that's




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:34,000

what I'm planting they're the types that




19

00:00:34,200 --> 00:00:35,559

die back to the ground every fall and




20

00:00:35,759 --> 00:00:37,209

then the next spring they emerge with




21

00:00:37,409 --> 00:00:39,579

these beautiful red tinge stems and then




22

00:00:39,780 --> 00:00:41,619

they turn into this just beautiful small




23

00:00:41,820 --> 00:00:43,239

shrub in the garden full of flowers




24

00:00:43,439 --> 00:00:45,878

there are tree peonies which we've done




25

00:00:46,079 --> 00:00:47,799

a video on previously we will link that




26

00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:48,909

down below if you want to learn it a




27

00:00:49,109 --> 00:00:50,649

little bit more but basically they're a




28

00:00:50,850 --> 00:00:53,140

type of peeny that create a more woody




29

00:00:53,340 --> 00:00:56,378

stem above ground that stays intact so




30

00:00:56,579 --> 00:00:57,698

they lose their leaves in the fall but




31

00:00:57,899 --> 00:00:58,838

when they leaf out in the spring they'll




32

00:00:59,039 --> 00:01:01,088

leaf out on those stems and then there




33

00:01:01,289 --> 00:01:04,179

are ito peonies which are a hybrid cross




34

00:01:04,379 --> 00:01:06,310

between an herbaceous and the tree peony




35

00:01:06,510 --> 00:01:08,950

and the benefit of Ito's is that they




36

00:01:09,150 --> 00:01:11,109

are prolific bloomers and there are a




37

00:01:11,310 --> 00:01:13,090

ton of colors available so you can find




38

00:01:13,290 --> 00:01:14,890

potted peonies like these right here at




39

00:01:15,090 --> 00:01:16,209

your garden center most of the time in




40

00:01:16,409 --> 00:01:17,349

the spring you'll find a pretty good




41

00:01:17,549 --> 00:01:19,238

selection of them you might also be able




42

00:01:19,438 --> 00:01:22,119

to buy them as bare root or tubers and I




43

00:01:22,319 --> 00:01:23,738

believe the best time of the year to




44

00:01:23,938 --> 00:01:25,390

plant those is in the fall and it is




45

00:01:25,590 --> 00:01:27,250

spring now I have some tubers I'm going




46

00:01:27,450 --> 00:01:28,329

to plant in the ground but I figure




47

00:01:28,530 --> 00:01:29,679

they're better off planted in the ground




48

00:01:29,879 --> 00:01:31,929

now I've been hanging on to them until




49

00:01:32,129 --> 00:01:33,579

fall so I'll show you how to plant those




50

00:01:33,780 --> 00:01:36,128

roots in just a second these are super




51

00:01:36,328 --> 00:01:38,500

easy all we have to do is find a spot




52

00:01:38,700 --> 00:01:41,378

that gets full Sun a minimum of six to




53

00:01:41,578 --> 00:01:43,179

eight hours of Sun for them to perform




54

00:01:43,379 --> 00:01:45,668

the best they also like moist but really




55

00:01:45,868 --> 00:01:47,769

well draining soil and you want to give




56

00:01:47,969 --> 00:01:49,719

them a space that has good air flow so




57

00:01:49,920 --> 00:01:51,369

like this area right here I have a fence




58

00:01:51,569 --> 00:01:53,259

right behind me there's going to be just




59

00:01:53,459 --> 00:01:54,609

a little mini hedge I've got three




60

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,709

peonies back here they'll get plenty of




61

00:01:56,909 --> 00:01:58,448

air if they don't have enough air and




62

00:01:58,649 --> 00:02:00,340

you've got high humidity or it's a




63

00:02:00,540 --> 00:02:03,039

moister area they can suffer from




64

00:02:03,239 --> 00:02:04,689

powdery mildew or a fungus called




65

00:02:04,890 --> 00:02:07,000

botrytis those are the two most common




66

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:10,029

on peonies so just keep that in mind so




67

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:11,259

real quick let me just talk to you about




68

00:02:11,459 --> 00:02:12,969

this specific variety I'm planting this




69

00:02:13,169 --> 00:02:13,780

is called core




70

00:02:13,979 --> 00:02:16,209

old charm so like I said this one is




71

00:02:16,408 --> 00:02:18,189

just starting to open and they will get




72

00:02:18,389 --> 00:02:20,110

nice and big beautiful coral color




73

00:02:20,310 --> 00:02:22,719

they're a semi double and they are




74

00:02:22,919 --> 00:02:25,118

really Hardy Hardy down to negative 40




75

00:02:25,318 --> 00:02:28,149

degrees and they get to be like 28 30




76

00:02:28,348 --> 00:02:30,460

inches tall and about a 30 to 36 inch




77

00:02:30,659 --> 00:02:31,990

spread so I'm going to kind of plant




78

00:02:32,189 --> 00:02:34,240

them back from this little row of lilies




79

00:02:34,439 --> 00:02:35,860

right here to where they can kind of




80

00:02:36,060 --> 00:02:37,780

spill out into the driveway behind me I




81

00:02:37,979 --> 00:02:39,700

think that'll be really pretty to see




82

00:02:39,900 --> 00:02:41,679

those big bright bright pink blooms kind




83

00:02:41,878 --> 00:02:43,209

of emerging from underneath this white




84

00:02:43,408 --> 00:02:45,399

fence they do like a pretty fertile soil




85

00:02:45,598 --> 00:02:48,310

as well so today when I plant them I'm




86

00:02:48,509 --> 00:02:49,539

going to be adding in some bio tone




87

00:02:49,739 --> 00:02:51,129

starter fertilizer into each one of




88

00:02:51,329 --> 00:02:53,319

their holes and this is pretty good soil




89

00:02:53,519 --> 00:02:54,610

back here so I don't think I need to




90

00:02:54,810 --> 00:02:56,200

worry about anything else so let's get




91

00:02:56,400 --> 00:02:57,490

these three in the ground and then I'm




92

00:02:57,689 --> 00:02:59,710

going to talk about how to best support




93

00:02:59,909 --> 00:03:03,139

the plants with stakes




94

00:03:14,330 --> 00:03:30,660

[Music]




95

00:03:30,860 --> 00:03:32,550

okay so I got all three of these in the




96

00:03:32,750 --> 00:03:34,110

ground so I've got this one here there's




97

00:03:34,310 --> 00:03:35,550

this one that doesn't have any blooms on




98

00:03:35,750 --> 00:03:37,350

it currently and then that one right




99

00:03:37,550 --> 00:03:38,760

there I think that's gonna form a




100

00:03:38,960 --> 00:03:40,410

beautiful backdrop I've got like I said




101

00:03:40,610 --> 00:03:42,390

lily is that bloom yellow I've got a




102

00:03:42,590 --> 00:03:44,460

blue chiffon roses share and standard so




103

00:03:44,659 --> 00:03:45,960

these are my summer colors rubs




104

00:03:46,159 --> 00:03:47,910

including a butterfly bush over there a




105

00:03:48,110 --> 00:03:50,280

Miss violet so I've lots of summer color




106

00:03:50,479 --> 00:03:51,930

and I was lacking spring so this is




107

00:03:52,129 --> 00:03:53,820

gonna bring some beautiful spring color




108

00:03:54,020 --> 00:03:56,310

in from for years to come and before I




109

00:03:56,509 --> 00:03:58,230

move on to showing you guys how to plant




110

00:03:58,430 --> 00:04:00,960

the tubers of peonies I want to talk




111

00:04:01,159 --> 00:04:02,310

about staking so there are a couple




112

00:04:02,509 --> 00:04:03,990

different methods that are pretty common




113

00:04:04,189 --> 00:04:06,920

for staking peonies this one is probably




114

00:04:07,120 --> 00:04:09,390

one of the most common this is a peony




115

00:04:09,590 --> 00:04:12,060

ring it's much like a tomato cage but




116

00:04:12,259 --> 00:04:13,800

it's a little sturdier and it's wider




117

00:04:14,000 --> 00:04:15,900

and you can get these in multiple




118

00:04:16,100 --> 00:04:18,240

different sizes but I prefer a different




119

00:04:18,439 --> 00:04:19,889

type of stake I've got one right here




120

00:04:20,089 --> 00:04:21,960

this is called a grow through through




121

00:04:22,160 --> 00:04:24,509

grid ideally you would have these in




122

00:04:24,709 --> 00:04:26,370

place before the plant starts growing in




123

00:04:26,569 --> 00:04:28,740

the spring so as it grows it can grow up




124

00:04:28,939 --> 00:04:31,590

through the grid the reason I like these




125

00:04:31,790 --> 00:04:34,710

better than the hoops or the cages is




126

00:04:34,910 --> 00:04:37,110

that these hold up individual branches




127

00:04:37,310 --> 00:04:38,310

and more of an aesthetically pleasing




128

00:04:38,509 --> 00:04:41,280

Mound if they grow up through this type




129

00:04:41,480 --> 00:04:44,460

of staking system they'll still kind of




130

00:04:44,660 --> 00:04:46,259

tend to flop from the center if they've




131

00:04:46,459 --> 00:04:48,300

got huge blooms this one holds




132

00:04:48,500 --> 00:04:50,939

everything a little bit more just




133

00:04:51,139 --> 00:04:52,980

rounded so there's three stakes right




134

00:04:53,180 --> 00:04:55,829

here that you attach to the top of the




135

00:04:56,029 --> 00:04:58,020

grow through grid like this so I'm going




136

00:04:58,220 --> 00:05:00,420

to attempt to feed these blooms through




137

00:05:00,620 --> 00:05:02,460

just to kind of show you what it might




138

00:05:02,660 --> 00:05:04,110

look like I've got to do it anyway I've




139

00:05:04,310 --> 00:05:06,900

got to have the the grid going and these




140

00:05:07,100 --> 00:05:08,579

I just leave out I leave them out all




141

00:05:08,779 --> 00:05:10,680

winter long and they're just in place




142

00:05:10,879 --> 00:05:12,780

for when the peony starts growing the




143

00:05:12,980 --> 00:05:15,629

following spring oh I think I did it so




144

00:05:15,829 --> 00:05:17,910

see how that already holds that bloom up




145

00:05:18,110 --> 00:05:19,680

a little bit better and then I'm going




146

00:05:19,879 --> 00:05:21,090

to decide where I want my stakes and




147

00:05:21,290 --> 00:05:23,610

we'll put those in the ground they're




148

00:05:23,810 --> 00:05:28,259

really easy to use much like that and




149

00:05:28,459 --> 00:05:29,490

there are different sizes of these




150

00:05:29,689 --> 00:05:31,730

available as well so if you've got huge




151

00:05:31,930 --> 00:05:33,900

established peonies that are really big




152

00:05:34,100 --> 00:05:35,490

at the base you can get heavier-duty




153

00:05:35,689 --> 00:05:38,040

versions and you know I may have to do




154

00:05:38,240 --> 00:05:39,000

that eventually




155

00:05:39,199 --> 00:05:41,430

but these peonies don't get like so




156

00:05:41,629 --> 00:05:43,199

massive like some varieties do so I may




157

00:05:43,399 --> 00:05:44,579

be okay with this size




158

00:05:44,779 --> 00:05:45,600

so I'm going to go ahead and put my




159

00:05:45,800 --> 00:05:47,160

other two grids on and then we'll go




160

00:05:47,360 --> 00:05:50,170

plant the tubers




161

00:05:52,259 --> 00:05:54,040

so we're in the location where I want to




162

00:05:54,240 --> 00:05:55,600

plant the bare-root peonies which I have




163

00:05:55,800 --> 00:05:57,069

right here this is a variety called




164

00:05:57,269 --> 00:06:00,250

Laura desert and it's a beautiful fully




165

00:06:00,449 --> 00:06:02,259

double creamy white and creamy yellow




166

00:06:02,459 --> 00:06:03,939

peony and I thought it would be really




167

00:06:04,139 --> 00:06:06,460

beautiful right here this area looks




168

00:06:06,660 --> 00:06:08,170

Shady now because it is morning but it




169

00:06:08,370 --> 00:06:10,389

does get a really good long block of




170

00:06:10,589 --> 00:06:11,770

afternoon Sun so they should be very




171

00:06:11,970 --> 00:06:12,730

happy here




172

00:06:12,930 --> 00:06:15,280

and I am planting them kind of forward




173

00:06:15,480 --> 00:06:17,500

in this flowerbed because I do want to




174

00:06:17,699 --> 00:06:19,180

come in probably implant some climbing




175

00:06:19,379 --> 00:06:21,460

roses behind them so I wanted to leave a




176

00:06:21,660 --> 00:06:23,410

little bit of space so what you want to




177

00:06:23,610 --> 00:06:25,600

do to plant your bare root is make sure




178

00:06:25,800 --> 00:06:27,970

you find the highest bud on the crown so




179

00:06:28,170 --> 00:06:29,319

you can see the crown of the plant right




180

00:06:29,519 --> 00:06:31,930

here this is the highest bud right there




181

00:06:32,129 --> 00:06:33,280

we want to make sure that that sits




182

00:06:33,480 --> 00:06:35,170

about one to two inches below the soil




183

00:06:35,370 --> 00:06:35,920

surface




184

00:06:36,120 --> 00:06:38,230

if you plant it too deep it can delay




185

00:06:38,430 --> 00:06:40,060

bloom time and it could also make the




186

00:06:40,259 --> 00:06:41,800

plant not bloom at all so you just want




187

00:06:42,000 --> 00:06:43,329

to be very mindful of that I've already




188

00:06:43,529 --> 00:06:45,280

dug up my hole you can see the soil




189

00:06:45,480 --> 00:06:47,860

right here is really pretty nice just




190

00:06:48,060 --> 00:06:49,689

perfect I'm gonna set my root down in




191

00:06:49,889 --> 00:06:51,490

there and you can see where the soil




192

00:06:51,689 --> 00:06:54,009

surface is it'll sit just about two




193

00:06:54,209 --> 00:06:56,050

inches below with the surface I'm gonna




194

00:06:56,250 --> 00:06:57,490

toss a little bit of starter fertilizer




195

00:06:57,689 --> 00:06:59,920

in right around the root and then just




196

00:07:00,120 --> 00:07:03,509

fill back the hole well tamp that down




197

00:07:03,709 --> 00:07:05,710

cover it back up with a little bit of




198

00:07:05,910 --> 00:07:08,020

mulch and before I get too far I'm gonna




199

00:07:08,220 --> 00:07:10,120

put my grid steak over it so I can




200

00:07:10,319 --> 00:07:11,500

remember that I have something planted




201

00:07:11,699 --> 00:07:13,840

here for the first thing and then once




202

00:07:14,040 --> 00:07:15,069

it starts growing the grid will be in




203

00:07:15,269 --> 00:07:18,709

place and I won't have to worry about it




204

00:07:22,430 --> 00:07:26,020

that looks pretty darn good okay so I've




205

00:07:26,220 --> 00:07:28,870

just got two more to plan




206

00:07:29,069 --> 00:07:43,699

[Music]




207

00:07:46,350 --> 00:07:56,050

[Music]




208

00:07:56,250 --> 00:07:58,400

so I got all three of these planted and




209

00:07:58,600 --> 00:07:59,629

I think they're gonna be gorgeous here




210

00:07:59,829 --> 00:08:01,340

especially once I get some roses and




211

00:08:01,540 --> 00:08:03,410

clematis growing right behind them there




212

00:08:03,610 --> 00:08:04,730

are a couple more things I want to talk




213

00:08:04,930 --> 00:08:05,930

to you about but I think I want to go




214

00:08:06,129 --> 00:08:07,879

back to the first peonies to talk to you




215

00:08:08,079 --> 00:08:08,960

about those things because I can




216

00:08:09,160 --> 00:08:10,639

actually show you on the plant so the




217

00:08:10,839 --> 00:08:12,620

first thing is when the peonies come out




218

00:08:12,819 --> 00:08:15,350

in bud in spring they do secrete a




219

00:08:15,550 --> 00:08:18,079

really sweet SAP out of the buds that




220

00:08:18,279 --> 00:08:20,480

ants and flies and bees are attracted to




221

00:08:20,680 --> 00:08:23,270

it does not harm the plant at all they




222

00:08:23,470 --> 00:08:24,980

just come up there to feed on it some




223

00:08:25,180 --> 00:08:26,600

people think it opens it helps to open




224

00:08:26,800 --> 00:08:28,250

the blooms I think that that is a myth




225

00:08:28,449 --> 00:08:29,960

but it doesn't hurt your plant




226

00:08:30,160 --> 00:08:32,059

whatsoever when you get ready to cut




227

00:08:32,259 --> 00:08:33,559

your peonies to bring them inside if you




228

00:08:33,759 --> 00:08:35,149

see any ants on them you can just rinse




229

00:08:35,350 --> 00:08:37,819

them off super easy the second thing is




230

00:08:38,019 --> 00:08:39,439

you do want to deadhead your peonies




231

00:08:39,639 --> 00:08:41,779

when the blooms are done that way the




232

00:08:41,980 --> 00:08:43,729

plant doesn't send energy into creating




233

00:08:43,929 --> 00:08:45,469

seeds because they do create it's kind




234

00:08:45,669 --> 00:08:47,719

of a neat looking seed pod but you don't




235

00:08:47,919 --> 00:08:49,039

want your plant sending energy into




236

00:08:49,240 --> 00:08:50,449

seeds you want it's sending energy




237

00:08:50,649 --> 00:08:52,490

rather into it's a root system so it can




238

00:08:52,690 --> 00:08:54,409

establish even more and create more




239

00:08:54,610 --> 00:08:56,269

flowers for the next year so when you




240

00:08:56,470 --> 00:08:58,009

get ready to deadhead it's really easy




241

00:08:58,210 --> 00:08:59,929

there's really no rhyme or reason to how




242

00:09:00,129 --> 00:09:01,909

far you cut back the stem but like on




243

00:09:02,110 --> 00:09:03,379

this one right here I'd probably cut it




244

00:09:03,580 --> 00:09:05,359

back right into the bushier part of the




245

00:09:05,559 --> 00:09:07,579

shrub that way you don't have a bear or




246

00:09:07,779 --> 00:09:09,709

random stem sticking up out further than




247

00:09:09,909 --> 00:09:11,000

the rest of the leaves you just want to




248

00:09:11,200 --> 00:09:12,549

make it look aesthetically pleasing




249

00:09:12,750 --> 00:09:15,740

third they are heavy feeders so like I




250

00:09:15,940 --> 00:09:17,599

put today some starter fertilizer in the




251

00:09:17,799 --> 00:09:19,370

hole usually after they get done




252

00:09:19,570 --> 00:09:20,959

blooming I'll toss some plant tonne




253

00:09:21,159 --> 00:09:22,759

fertilizer around the base of the shrub




254

00:09:22,960 --> 00:09:24,859

that way they can utilize that and build




255

00:09:25,059 --> 00:09:27,409

up the root system even more and then




256

00:09:27,610 --> 00:09:29,149

you do want to cut to the peonies back




257

00:09:29,350 --> 00:09:31,729

down to the ground in the fall after the




258

00:09:31,929 --> 00:09:33,259

first frost kind of takes their foliage




259

00:09:33,460 --> 00:09:35,839

so anyway that's all there is to peonies




260

00:09:36,039 --> 00:09:37,370

once you get them in the ground and you




261

00:09:37,570 --> 00:09:38,089

get them going




262

00:09:38,289 --> 00:09:40,309

it just is a beautiful thing to have in




263

00:09:40,509 --> 00:09:41,809

your garden so I hope this video was




264

00:09:42,009 --> 00:09:43,339

helpful you guys and we will see you in




265

00:09:43,539 --> 00:09:46,469

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,570

hey guys good morning I'm getting ready




2

00:00:01,770 --> 00:00:03,099

to plant some more hydrangeas in my




3

00:00:03,299 --> 00:00:04,929

garden today you might recognize this




4

00:00:05,129 --> 00:00:07,000

flowerbed I've planted pretty much




5

00:00:07,200 --> 00:00:08,859

annuals in this spot for the last couple




6

00:00:09,058 --> 00:00:10,540

of years and it's been really fun to




7

00:00:10,740 --> 00:00:12,430

experiment with some color and texture




8

00:00:12,630 --> 00:00:14,470

but I was ready for something a little




9

00:00:14,669 --> 00:00:16,329

bit more permanent so these are called




10

00:00:16,528 --> 00:00:18,609

fire light hydrangeas they're a type of




11

00:00:18,809 --> 00:00:21,220

paniculata which paniculata s-- as a




12

00:00:21,420 --> 00:00:23,400

whole are really easy maintenance




13

00:00:23,600 --> 00:00:25,780

hydrangeas they're really winter hardy




14

00:00:25,980 --> 00:00:27,249

like I think this is a zone three




15

00:00:27,449 --> 00:00:29,769

through eight so I mean it can take




16

00:00:29,969 --> 00:00:31,659

winter temperatures really low and




17

00:00:31,859 --> 00:00:33,849

paniculata SAR the most sun tolerant




18

00:00:34,049 --> 00:00:36,759

hydrangea and it gets very hot and dry




19

00:00:36,960 --> 00:00:39,128

here in Eastern Oregon and the Sun is




20

00:00:39,329 --> 00:00:41,919

very intense but paniculata us handle it




21

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

very well you might be familiar with the




22

00:00:44,070 --> 00:00:45,518

limelight hydrangea super popular




23

00:00:45,719 --> 00:00:48,070

beautiful hydrangea I have some planted




24

00:00:48,270 --> 00:00:50,140

in another area of my garden but the




25

00:00:50,340 --> 00:00:51,518

thing about fire light is that they




26

00:00:51,719 --> 00:00:53,739

bloom a lot earlier in the season than




27

00:00:53,939 --> 00:00:55,869

the limelight so if you live in an area




28

00:00:56,070 --> 00:00:58,119

with more mild temperatures like cooler




29

00:00:58,320 --> 00:01:00,338

nights cooler summers this one will




30

00:01:00,539 --> 00:01:02,169

bloom a lot earlier for you so you can




31

00:01:02,369 --> 00:01:04,329

enjoy it throughout the season and then




32

00:01:04,530 --> 00:01:06,369

it starts coloring up like the blooms




33

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:08,019

start changing so it comes out with




34

00:01:08,219 --> 00:01:09,488

creamy white blooms in the very




35

00:01:09,688 --> 00:01:11,500

beginning and then as soon as the




36

00:01:11,700 --> 00:01:12,730

nighttime temperatures start to drop




37

00:01:12,930 --> 00:01:14,738

even a little bit it triggers the color




38

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:16,808

change in the blooms and they really




39

00:01:17,009 --> 00:01:19,238

quickly turn into a like vivid like




40

00:01:19,438 --> 00:01:21,969

reddish pink it's very beautiful show so




41

00:01:22,170 --> 00:01:24,609

I'm really excited to see what this




42

00:01:24,810 --> 00:01:26,590

hedge looks like now they do grow quite




43

00:01:26,790 --> 00:01:28,299

large so they grow six to eight feet




44

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,799

tall and wide now that's if you just




45

00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:30,909

kind of let them do their thing




46

00:01:31,109 --> 00:01:32,918

you might be thinking I'm crazy cuz this




47

00:01:33,118 --> 00:01:36,009

is only about four feet wide or so we




48

00:01:36,209 --> 00:01:37,959

are planning on extending these




49

00:01:38,159 --> 00:01:39,549

flowerbeds quite far




50

00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:42,009

maybe next year so I know that this is




51

00:01:42,209 --> 00:01:43,719

going to be my background kind of the




52

00:01:43,920 --> 00:01:46,689

backdrop hedge and you can size control




53

00:01:46,890 --> 00:01:48,159

them a little bit that's the other thing




54

00:01:48,359 --> 00:01:49,840

about having a hydrangea that blooms on




55

00:01:50,040 --> 00:01:52,299

new wood you can go in in early spring




56

00:01:52,500 --> 00:01:53,980

when they just start to bud up and you




57

00:01:54,180 --> 00:01:56,140

can cut them back and it's actually good




58

00:01:56,340 --> 00:01:57,518

for the plant it keeps them really




59

00:01:57,718 --> 00:02:00,789

strong but fire light stems are really




60

00:02:00,989 --> 00:02:02,590

strong just on their own even stronger




61

00:02:02,790 --> 00:02:04,299

than the lime lights so now I want to




62

00:02:04,500 --> 00:02:06,579

get all of these in the ground I am




63

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,080

going to be using a little bit of this




64

00:02:08,280 --> 00:02:10,000

bio tone starter fertilizer in each of




65

00:02:10,199 --> 00:02:11,590

the holes but no compost nothing else




66

00:02:11,789 --> 00:02:12,520

and




67

00:02:12,719 --> 00:02:13,660

then I do have to run some new




68

00:02:13,860 --> 00:02:15,760

irrigation this did have drip lines in




69

00:02:15,960 --> 00:02:17,740

it but they were kind of old and all the




70

00:02:17,939 --> 00:02:19,090

emitters were really caked with hard




71

00:02:19,289 --> 00:02:21,310

water so we'll run a new water line and




72

00:02:21,509 --> 00:02:22,570

then I'm going to be putting probably




73

00:02:22,770 --> 00:02:25,180

two two gallon per hour emitters on each




74

00:02:25,379 --> 00:02:27,700

one of these hydrangea root balls so I




75

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:28,930

can make sure to keep them very well




76

00:02:29,129 --> 00:02:29,860

hydrated




77

00:02:30,060 --> 00:03:10,480

[Music]




78

00:03:10,680 --> 00:03:12,710

so we've got them all in the ground and




79

00:03:12,909 --> 00:03:14,630

I ran all the irrigation so like I said




80

00:03:14,830 --> 00:03:16,789

I did two to gallon per hour emitters to




81

00:03:16,989 --> 00:03:19,189

each root ball and I find that's what




82

00:03:19,389 --> 00:03:21,140

they need here in our hot dry climate in




83

00:03:21,340 --> 00:03:23,539

fact we run our drips every single day




84

00:03:23,739 --> 00:03:25,460

for about an hour when the temperatures




85

00:03:25,659 --> 00:03:27,469

go above a hundred and that's what keeps




86

00:03:27,669 --> 00:03:29,240

them looking really really nice and




87

00:03:29,439 --> 00:03:31,189

you'll have to adjust that depending on




88

00:03:31,389 --> 00:03:33,890

your weather your region and kind of you




89

00:03:34,090 --> 00:03:35,570

know what they typically like and you




90

00:03:35,770 --> 00:03:36,920

can ask somebody at your local garden




91

00:03:37,120 --> 00:03:38,090

center and kind of get their




92

00:03:38,289 --> 00:03:40,130

recommendation for that if you notice




93

00:03:40,330 --> 00:03:42,020

your hydrangea blooms turning brown




94

00:03:42,219 --> 00:03:44,150

later in the summer rather than turning




95

00:03:44,349 --> 00:03:46,130

the color they're supposed to that means




96

00:03:46,330 --> 00:03:47,660

your hydrangea is not getting enough




97

00:03:47,860 --> 00:03:48,950

water so that's just something to be




98

00:03:49,150 --> 00:03:51,140

mindful of and I think this is going to




99

00:03:51,340 --> 00:03:53,390

be a glorious hedge of hydrangeas but I




100

00:03:53,590 --> 00:03:55,310

also feel that the fire light hydrogen




101

00:03:55,509 --> 00:03:57,349

would be a gorgeous specimen plant so if




102

00:03:57,549 --> 00:03:59,210

you don't have you know this much space




103

00:03:59,409 --> 00:04:01,219

to fill or you just want to have one to




104

00:04:01,419 --> 00:04:03,800

enjoy it's you know a big enough shrub




105

00:04:04,000 --> 00:04:06,110

that it'll look gorgeous but I do have a




106

00:04:06,310 --> 00:04:08,210

chart that's super handy that shows a




107

00:04:08,409 --> 00:04:09,439

whole bunch of different paniculata




108

00:04:09,639 --> 00:04:11,599

hydrangeas and what time of the year




109

00:04:11,799 --> 00:04:13,700

they start to bloom so you can see here




110

00:04:13,900 --> 00:04:15,829

in the very early category there's quick




111

00:04:16,029 --> 00:04:17,629

fire little quick fire bow bow and fire




112

00:04:17,829 --> 00:04:18,829

light and it shows kind of their




113

00:04:19,029 --> 00:04:20,658

different growth habits which is super




114

00:04:20,858 --> 00:04:22,730

helpful and then you've got your early




115

00:04:22,930 --> 00:04:24,650

category which is pinky-winky and then




116

00:04:24,850 --> 00:04:26,750

midseason bloomers are your Zinfandel




117

00:04:26,949 --> 00:04:29,028

little lime and lime light so that's it




118

00:04:29,228 --> 00:04:30,650

you guys hope you enjoyed seeing this




119

00:04:30,850 --> 00:04:32,689

henge come in and I hope you are going




120

00:04:32,889 --> 00:04:34,338

to enjoy the progress shots that will




121

00:04:34,538 --> 00:04:36,139

give you throughout the season because I




122

00:04:36,339 --> 00:04:38,210

think that is when it's gonna get really




123

00:04:38,410 --> 00:04:40,100

amazing thanks guys so much for watching




124

00:04:40,300 --> 00:04:41,569

beginning and then as soon as the




36

00:01:11,700 --> 00:01:12,730

nighttime temperatures start to drop




37

00:01:12,930 --> 00:01:14,738

even a little bit it triggers the color




38

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:16,808

change in the blooms and they really




39

00:01:17,009 --> 00:01:19,238

quickly turn into a like vivid like




40

00:01:19,438 --> 00:01:21,969

reddish pink it's very beautiful show so




41

00:01:22,170 --> 00:01:24,609

I'm really excited to see what this




42

00:01:24,810 --> 00:01:26,590

hedge looks like now they do grow quite




43

00:01:26,790 --> 00:01:28,299

large so they grow six to eight feet




44

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,799

tall and wide now that's if you just




45

00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:30,909

kind of let them do their thing




46

00:01:31,109 --> 00:01:32,918

you might be thinking I'm crazy cuz this




47

00:01:33,118 --> 00:01:36,009

is only about four feet wide or so we




48

00:01:36,209 --> 00:01:37,959

are planning on extending these




49

00:01:38,159 --> 00:01:39,549

flowerbeds quite far




50

00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:42,009

maybe next year so I know that this is




51

00:01:42,209 --> 00:01:43,719

going to be my background kind of the




52

00:01:43,920 --> 00:01:46,689

backdrop hedge and you can size control




53

00:01:46,890 --> 00:01:48,159

them a little bit that's the other thing




54

00:01:48,359 --> 00:01:49,840

about having a hydrangea that blooms on




55

00:01:50,040 --> 00:01:52,299

new wood you can go in in early spring




56

00:01:52,500 --> 00:01:53,980

when they just start to bud up and you




57

00:01:54,180 --> 00:01:56,140

can cut them back and it's actually good




58

00:01:56,340 --> 00:01:57,518

for the plant it keeps them really




59

00:01:57,718 --> 00:02:00,789

strong but fire light stems are really




60

00:02:00,989 --> 00:02:02,590

strong just on their own even stronger




61

00:02:02,790 --> 00:02:04,299

than the lime lights so now I want to




62

00:02:04,500 --> 00:02:06,579

get all of these in the ground I am




63

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,080

going to be using a little bit of this




64

00:02:08,280 --> 00:02:10,000

bio tone starter fertilizer in each of




65

00:02:10,199 --> 00:02:11,590

the holes but no compost nothing else




66

00:02:11,789 --> 00:02:12,520

and




67

00:02:12,719 --> 00:02:13,660

then I do have to run some new




68

00:02:13,860 --> 00:02:15,760

irrigation this did have drip lines in




69

00:02:15,960 --> 00:02:17,740

it but they were kind of old and all the




70

00:02:17,939 --> 00:02:19,090

emitters were really caked with hard




71

00:02:19,289 --> 00:02:21,310

water so we'll run a new water line and




72

00:02:21,509 --> 00:02:22,570

then I'm going to be putting probably




73

00:02:22,770 --> 00:02:25,180

two two gallon per hour emitters on each




74

00:02:25,379 --> 00:02:27,700

one of these hydrangea root balls so I




75

00:02:27,900 --> 00:02:28,930

can make sure to keep them very well




76

00:02:29,129 --> 00:02:29,860

hydrated




77

00:02:30,060 --> 00:03:10,480

[Music]




78

00:03:10,680 --> 00:03:12,710

so we've got them all in the ground and




79

00:03:12,909 --> 00:03:14,630

I ran all the irrigation so like I said




80

00:03:14,830 --> 00:03:16,789

I did two to gallon per hour emitters to




81

00:03:16,989 --> 00:03:19,189

each root ball and I find that's what




82

00:03:19,389 --> 00:03:21,140

they need here in our hot dry climate in




83

00:03:21,340 --> 00:03:23,539

fact we run our drips every single day




84

00:03:23,739 --> 00:03:25,460

for about an hour when the temperatures




85

00:03:25,659 --> 00:03:27,469

go above a hundred and that's what keeps




86

00:03:27,669 --> 00:03:29,240

them looking really really nice and




87

00:03:29,439 --> 00:03:31,189

you'll have to adjust that depending on




88

00:03:31,389 --> 00:03:33,890

your weather your region and kind of you




89

00:03:34,090 --> 00:03:35,570

know what they typically like and you




90

00:03:35,770 --> 00:03:36,920

can ask somebody at your local garden




91

00:03:37,120 --> 00:03:38,090

center and kind of get their




92

00:03:38,289 --> 00:03:40,130

recommendation for that if you notice




93

00:03:40,330 --> 00:03:42,020

your hydrangea blooms turning brown




94

00:03:42,219 --> 00:03:44,150

later in the summer rather than turning




95

00:03:44,349 --> 00:03:46,130

the color they're supposed to that means




96

00:03:46,330 --> 00:03:47,660

your hydrangea is not getting enough




97

00:03:47,860 --> 00:03:48,950

water so that's just something to be




98

00:03:49,150 --> 00:03:51,140

mindful of and I think this is going to




99

00:03:51,340 --> 00:03:53,390

be a glorious hedge of hydrangeas but I




100

00:03:53,590 --> 00:03:55,310

also feel that the fire light hydrogen




101

00:03:55,509 --> 00:03:57,349

would be a gorgeous specimen plant so if




102

00:03:57,549 --> 00:03:59,210

you don't have you know this much space




103

00:03:59,409 --> 00:04:01,219

to fill or you just want to have one to




104

00:04:01,419 --> 00:04:03,800

enjoy it's you know a big enough shrub




105

00:04:04,000 --> 00:04:06,110

that it'll look gorgeous but I do have a




106

00:04:06,310 --> 00:04:08,210

chart that's super handy that shows a




107

00:04:08,409 --> 00:04:09,439

whole bunch of different paniculata




108

00:04:09,639 --> 00:04:11,599

hydrangeas and what time of the year




109

00:04:11,799 --> 00:04:13,700

they start to bloom so you can see here




110

00:04:13,900 --> 00:04:15,829

in the very early category there's quick




111

00:04:16,029 --> 00:04:17,629

fire little quick fire bow bow and fire




112

00:04:17,829 --> 00:04:18,829

light and it shows kind of their




113

00:04:19,029 --> 00:04:20,658

different growth habits which is super




114

00:04:20,858 --> 00:04:22,730

helpful and then you've got your early




115

00:04:22,930 --> 00:04:24,650

category which is pinky-winky and then




116

00:04:24,850 --> 00:04:26,750

midseason bloomers are your Zinfandel




117

00:04:26,949 --> 00:04:29,028

little lime and lime light so that's it




118

00:04:29,228 --> 00:04:30,650

you guys hope you enjoyed seeing this




119

00:04:30,850 --> 00:04:32,689

henge come in and I hope you are going




120

00:04:32,889 --> 00:04:34,338

to enjoy the progress shots that will




121

00:04:34,538 --> 00:04:36,139

give you throughout the season because I




122

00:04:36,339 --> 00:04:38,210

think that is when it's gonna get really




123

00:04:38,410 --> 00:04:40,100

amazing thanks guys so much for watching




124

00:04:40,300 --> 00:04:41,569

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,209

hey guys how's it going we're out of my




2

00:00:01,409 --> 00:00:02,738

parents house this morning working on a




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,299

really fun project that I've been




4

00:00:04,500 --> 00:00:06,908

looking forward to for months and you




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,830

guys might think that I do big projects




6

00:00:09,029 --> 00:00:12,550

check this out they just had 12 huge




7

00:00:12,750 --> 00:00:15,490

containers built and installed along




8

00:00:15,689 --> 00:00:17,230

their driveway in fact this has been a




9

00:00:17,429 --> 00:00:18,940

huge project this spring it's a really




10

00:00:19,140 --> 00:00:20,650

really fun one because all of my




11

00:00:20,850 --> 00:00:22,659

childhood years there was a little




12

00:00:22,859 --> 00:00:24,249

skinny driveway in fact you can see the




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:25,269

wheel mark here




14

00:00:25,469 --> 00:00:27,399

it was very skinny he went to about here




15

00:00:27,599 --> 00:00:29,919

and then all the rest of this space was




16

00:00:30,118 --> 00:00:32,858

all ditch so there was just a big canal




17

00:00:33,058 --> 00:00:35,079

full of water right here so they had it




18

00:00:35,280 --> 00:00:37,390

piped and covered this spring and then




19

00:00:37,590 --> 00:00:39,820

lined with redpoint maples I think there




20

00:00:40,020 --> 00:00:42,669

are 14 redpoint maples in total this is




21

00:00:42,869 --> 00:00:44,049

the same type of maple that we used




22

00:00:44,250 --> 00:00:46,448

alongside our driveway and it's gonna be




23

00:00:46,649 --> 00:00:49,000

gorgeous because a beautiful red fall




24

00:00:49,200 --> 00:00:51,338

color and then of course the planters




25

00:00:51,539 --> 00:00:53,858

they make a huge statement and they're




26

00:00:54,058 --> 00:00:55,838

kind of modeled after the box planters




27

00:00:56,039 --> 00:00:57,669

you see in French garden he's kind of




28

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,890

like Versailles they're a little bit




29

00:01:00,090 --> 00:01:01,358

more rustic though which i think is




30

00:01:01,558 --> 00:01:03,399

perfect because it goes with their




31

00:01:03,600 --> 00:01:05,829

country style home the other really fun




32

00:01:06,030 --> 00:01:08,109

thing are the plants that I get to use




33

00:01:08,310 --> 00:01:10,599

in this project we're not going to vary




34

00:01:10,799 --> 00:01:12,549

the type of plants I use very much




35

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:14,738

because we get to try something that's




36

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:17,259

brand new it's not even out yet because




37

00:01:17,459 --> 00:01:19,028

we work with proven winners on occasion




38

00:01:19,228 --> 00:01:21,609

we get to try out new plants and this is




39

00:01:21,810 --> 00:01:23,679

a new one next year called supertunia




40

00:01:23,879 --> 00:01:25,599

vista snowdrift and if you guys have




41

00:01:25,799 --> 00:01:28,000

ever grown any supertunia in the Vista




42

00:01:28,200 --> 00:01:29,469

line you will know what I'm talking




43

00:01:29,670 --> 00:01:31,209

about like supertunia vista bubblegum




44

00:01:31,409 --> 00:01:34,058

vista fuchsia vista silver berry they




45

00:01:34,259 --> 00:01:36,730

grow huge they are really really




46

00:01:36,930 --> 00:01:38,769

vigorous they have huge amount of bloom




47

00:01:38,969 --> 00:01:40,299

count on them all throughout this season




48

00:01:40,500 --> 00:01:41,918

and I think they're one of the best




49

00:01:42,118 --> 00:01:43,808

suited to go either in the landscape or




50

00:01:44,009 --> 00:01:45,308

in containers in fact I'm going to be




51

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,599

putting some of these in the ground at




52

00:01:46,799 --> 00:01:48,308

my house and we'll be able to kind of




53

00:01:48,509 --> 00:01:50,619

see how they do you know in a container




54

00:01:50,819 --> 00:01:52,959

versus the landscape these I was doing a




55

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:54,609

little reading on them have said that




56

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,378

they can grow up to two feet tall and




57

00:01:56,578 --> 00:01:57,488

four feet wide




58

00:01:57,688 --> 00:02:00,668

one one supertunia vista snowdrift




59

00:02:00,868 --> 00:02:03,399

that's like a shrub which is amazing so




60

00:02:03,599 --> 00:02:05,619

I'm going to be putting eight of these




61

00:02:05,819 --> 00:02:07,000

in each of these containers which is




62

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:08,439

probably a little much I could probably




63

00:02:08,639 --> 00:02:10,029

get away with just doing one on each




64

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:12,610

side but there is an event happening in




65

00:02:12,810 --> 00:02:13,540

about a month at my




66

00:02:13,740 --> 00:02:14,710

parents house and we want to make sure




67

00:02:14,909 --> 00:02:16,210

that they're really full and they look




68

00:02:16,409 --> 00:02:18,040

really good for that so we're gonna use




69

00:02:18,240 --> 00:02:20,200

that primarily around the outside and




70

00:02:20,400 --> 00:02:22,360

then in the middle we're using a purple




71

00:02:22,560 --> 00:02:23,770

fountain grass and I think it's just




72

00:02:23,969 --> 00:02:25,689

gonna be a very striking contrast I




73

00:02:25,889 --> 00:02:27,250

think the white is gonna look really




74

00:02:27,449 --> 00:02:29,800

good up against this black rail fence




75

00:02:30,000 --> 00:02:31,719

right here this is the same color of




76

00:02:31,919 --> 00:02:33,130

stain that we use on our vegetable




77

00:02:33,330 --> 00:02:35,410

garden so it looks very pretty I think




78

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,719

all the way down the fence is new it




79

00:02:37,919 --> 00:02:39,580

just looks so sharp there's a lot more




80

00:02:39,780 --> 00:02:41,320

room for parking and just a lot more




81

00:02:41,520 --> 00:02:42,700

breathing space out here




82

00:02:42,900 --> 00:02:45,070

so we've already one run drip to these




83

00:02:45,270 --> 00:02:46,689

containers and I wanted to talk on that




84

00:02:46,889 --> 00:02:48,730

a little bit because we recently showed




85

00:02:48,930 --> 00:02:51,700

you how we hooked our drip system up to




86

00:02:51,900 --> 00:02:54,219

our irrigation system that it's like in




87

00:02:54,419 --> 00:02:56,020

the ground and I want to show you this




88

00:02:56,219 --> 00:02:58,630

is hooked into a hose bib so there's a




89

00:02:58,830 --> 00:03:00,760

half inch black poly tube in fact you




90

00:03:00,960 --> 00:03:03,700

can see it right here they need to bring




91

00:03:03,900 --> 00:03:05,350

in a little more gravel to cover but




92

00:03:05,550 --> 00:03:07,060

there's a tube that runs the entire




93

00:03:07,259 --> 00:03:10,510

distance the entire run and then they




94

00:03:10,710 --> 00:03:12,880

tapped in with little couplers right




95

00:03:13,080 --> 00:03:15,700

here and there's a quarter inch solid




96

00:03:15,900 --> 00:03:18,310

black tube that runs up the side and it




97

00:03:18,509 --> 00:03:20,590

comes into the container right here you




98

00:03:20,789 --> 00:03:23,950

move my plants and then we've got five




99

00:03:24,150 --> 00:03:25,360

drippers and Erin and I worked on this




100

00:03:25,560 --> 00:03:26,980

little network of drippers this morning




101

00:03:27,180 --> 00:03:28,450

what we're planning on doing is having




102

00:03:28,650 --> 00:03:31,630

one one gallon per hour emitter in




103

00:03:31,830 --> 00:03:33,820

between each set of petunias kind of




104

00:03:34,020 --> 00:03:36,580

like this so there'll be two petunias




105

00:03:36,780 --> 00:03:39,460

two two two and then this one will point




106

00:03:39,659 --> 00:03:41,439

right to the root ball of the grass and




107

00:03:41,639 --> 00:03:42,880

we do have little stakes that will help




108

00:03:43,080 --> 00:03:44,439

once I get everything planted kind of




109

00:03:44,639 --> 00:03:46,960

just tack everything into place so let's




110

00:03:47,159 --> 00:03:48,580

run to the very far end because that's




111

00:03:48,780 --> 00:03:49,990

where it attaches to the hose and I'll




112

00:03:50,189 --> 00:03:52,150

show you how that looks so we're at the




113

00:03:52,349 --> 00:03:54,250

opposite end this is the last container




114

00:03:54,449 --> 00:03:56,170

and then in the corner is where they're




115

00:03:56,370 --> 00:03:58,390

attached to water in fact if you look




116

00:03:58,590 --> 00:04:00,100

over the fence right here you can see




117

00:04:00,300 --> 00:04:02,680

the ditch it's still open on this end we




118

00:04:02,879 --> 00:04:04,450

used to swim in that when we were little




119

00:04:04,650 --> 00:04:06,460

kids but now all the water goes to a




120

00:04:06,659 --> 00:04:08,230

great big pipe right underneath this




121

00:04:08,430 --> 00:04:12,040

hole Elaine so this hose bib right here




122

00:04:12,240 --> 00:04:14,500

is where all the water comes from for




123

00:04:14,699 --> 00:04:16,270

both the Maples and the containers




124

00:04:16,470 --> 00:04:17,770

there's a splitter right here which you




125

00:04:17,970 --> 00:04:19,538

can either use that or you can hook your




126

00:04:19,738 --> 00:04:21,699

timer right into your hose you don't




127

00:04:21,899 --> 00:04:23,050

even have to use a timer if you don't




128

00:04:23,250 --> 00:04:24,939

want to you can come out every day and




129

00:04:25,139 --> 00:04:26,410

turn the hose on and turn it off but the




130

00:04:26,610 --> 00:04:27,160

timer makes




131

00:04:27,360 --> 00:04:29,230

super-nice to where you don't have to do




132

00:04:29,430 --> 00:04:31,088

that this will make everything automatic




133

00:04:31,288 --> 00:04:33,249

and then there's a couple of parts here




134

00:04:33,449 --> 00:04:36,459

that cook onto your timer and then you




135

00:04:36,658 --> 00:04:37,838

can put your drip tubing right up into




136

00:04:38,038 --> 00:04:39,939

those parts one of these runs to the the




137

00:04:40,139 --> 00:04:41,949

red point maples and one runs to the




138

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:44,139

containers at the amount of time that




139

00:04:44,339 --> 00:04:46,449

you run your containers it's kind of




140

00:04:46,649 --> 00:04:47,949

subjective to the time of year it is




141

00:04:48,149 --> 00:04:49,509

what the weather is like if it's real




142

00:04:49,709 --> 00:04:51,399

windy or not right now they could




143

00:04:51,598 --> 00:04:53,949

probably run these every other day or




144

00:04:54,149 --> 00:04:55,389

every two days to keep them happy




145

00:04:55,589 --> 00:04:57,399

because it's still pretty cool but when




146

00:04:57,598 --> 00:04:58,660

it gets really hot they'll be running




147

00:04:58,860 --> 00:04:59,379

them everyday




148

00:04:59,579 --> 00:05:00,790

so we'll probably start by running them




149

00:05:00,990 --> 00:05:02,439

for thirty minutes just to kind of gauge




150

00:05:02,639 --> 00:05:04,059

how much water comes out and how




151

00:05:04,259 --> 00:05:06,369

saturated the soil is and then we'll go




152

00:05:06,569 --> 00:05:06,939

from there




153

00:05:07,139 --> 00:05:08,480

so now let's start planting




154

00:05:08,680 --> 00:05:55,410

[Music]




155

00:05:57,959 --> 00:06:00,199

you guys I think that these are going to




156

00:06:00,399 --> 00:06:01,790

be absolutely gorgeous and you can




157

00:06:01,990 --> 00:06:03,520

already see them starting to take shape




158

00:06:03,720 --> 00:06:06,889

in purple fountain grass gets huge so




159

00:06:07,089 --> 00:06:08,930

it'll get these huge graceful plumes on




160

00:06:09,129 --> 00:06:11,210

the top and it will fill in beautifully




161

00:06:11,410 --> 00:06:12,949

and then with how this supertunia vistas




162

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:14,810

snowdrift is supposed to grow I think




163

00:06:15,009 --> 00:06:16,730

we're gonna be in for like a super




164

00:06:16,930 --> 00:06:18,710

dramatic show maybe even all the way to




165

00:06:18,910 --> 00:06:21,800

the crown the kitty loves it and I think




166

00:06:22,000 --> 00:06:24,079

with the general design like if you look




167

00:06:24,279 --> 00:06:25,699

down the way and you see the line of




168

00:06:25,899 --> 00:06:27,680

trees in the line of containers I think




169

00:06:27,879 --> 00:06:30,920

going with just one one arrangement the




170

00:06:31,120 --> 00:06:32,329

same thing in every container will be a




171

00:06:32,529 --> 00:06:35,120

very striking effect and it won't you




172

00:06:35,319 --> 00:06:37,338

know jar your eyes too much and also




173

00:06:37,538 --> 00:06:38,960

just using two different plants instead




174

00:06:39,160 --> 00:06:40,400

of using you know a whole bunch of




175

00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:41,990

different colors in this one container




176

00:06:42,189 --> 00:06:44,449

and the other supertunia vistas that are




177

00:06:44,649 --> 00:06:46,009

available are all in the pink family




178

00:06:46,209 --> 00:06:47,509

which is great for me because I love




179

00:06:47,709 --> 00:06:49,400

pink I love to use those in fact I'm




180

00:06:49,600 --> 00:06:50,540

using a whole bunch of my garden this




181

00:06:50,740 --> 00:06:52,550

year but I was so excited to learn that




182

00:06:52,750 --> 00:06:54,020

there was a new one and that it was




183

00:06:54,220 --> 00:06:56,149

white because I do think I could have a




184

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:58,430

garden completely full of green like




185

00:06:58,629 --> 00:07:00,468

shades of green foliage with white




186

00:07:00,668 --> 00:07:02,870

blooms and I would be happy with that so




187

00:07:03,069 --> 00:07:05,480

when I planted these I did add in some




188

00:07:05,680 --> 00:07:07,160

of this continuous release plant food




189

00:07:07,360 --> 00:07:09,230

like I do in all my containers I think I




190

00:07:09,430 --> 00:07:11,600

added about between 8 and 10 tablespoons




191

00:07:11,800 --> 00:07:13,910

and just mixed it into about the top




192

00:07:14,110 --> 00:07:16,430

couple inches of soil with plants like




193

00:07:16,629 --> 00:07:18,620

this that are huge huge performers they




194

00:07:18,819 --> 00:07:20,180

are really hungry plants they need a lot




195

00:07:20,379 --> 00:07:22,460

of food to perform the best so I always




196

00:07:22,660 --> 00:07:24,199

start with that and then I'm actually




197

00:07:24,399 --> 00:07:26,540

gonna give my parents a tub of this this




198

00:07:26,740 --> 00:07:27,980

is what I use in my containers on a




199

00:07:28,180 --> 00:07:30,170

weekly basis at home so they'll be




200

00:07:30,370 --> 00:07:31,910

feeding these plants every single week




201

00:07:32,110 --> 00:07:34,399

with a water soluble and that will keep




202

00:07:34,598 --> 00:07:36,588

them very happy and full of bloom so




203

00:07:36,788 --> 00:07:38,600

anyway that is it for this video I was




204

00:07:38,800 --> 00:07:40,278

just so excited to show you this brand




205

00:07:40,478 --> 00:07:41,930

new plant again it's not out this year




206

00:07:42,129 --> 00:07:43,910

this is gonna be brand new next year I'm




207

00:07:44,110 --> 00:07:45,319

so I'm really excited to show you guys




208

00:07:45,519 --> 00:07:47,060

progress updates throughout this season




209

00:07:47,259 --> 00:07:48,680

to see what it looks like because maybe




210

00:07:48,879 --> 00:07:49,850

this is something you'll want to add




211

00:07:50,050 --> 00:07:52,040

into your garden next year so anyway




212

00:07:52,240 --> 00:07:53,028

thank you guys so much for watching




213

00:07:53,228 --> 00:07:54,528

today and we will see you in the next




214

00:07:54,728 --> 00:07:55,350

one bye

1

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,209

hey guys how's it going we're out of my




2

00:00:01,409 --> 00:00:02,738

parents house this morning working on a




3

00:00:02,939 --> 00:00:04,299

really fun project that I've been




4

00:00:04,500 --> 00:00:06,908

looking forward to for months and you




5

00:00:07,108 --> 00:00:08,830

guys might think that I do big projects




6

00:00:09,029 --> 00:00:12,550

check this out they just had 12 huge




7

00:00:12,750 --> 00:00:15,490

containers built and installed along




8

00:00:15,689 --> 00:00:17,230

their driveway in fact this has been a




9

00:00:17,429 --> 00:00:18,940

huge project this spring it's a really




10

00:00:19,140 --> 00:00:20,650

really fun one because all of my




11

00:00:20,850 --> 00:00:22,659

childhood years there was a little




12

00:00:22,859 --> 00:00:24,249

skinny driveway in fact you can see the




13

00:00:24,449 --> 00:00:25,269

wheel mark here




14

00:00:25,469 --> 00:00:27,399

it was very skinny he went to about here




15

00:00:27,599 --> 00:00:29,919

and then all the rest of this space was




16

00:00:30,118 --> 00:00:32,858

all ditch so there was just a big canal




17

00:00:33,058 --> 00:00:35,079

full of water right here so they had it




18

00:00:35,280 --> 00:00:37,390

piped and covered this spring and then




19

00:00:37,590 --> 00:00:39,820

lined with redpoint maples I think there




20

00:00:40,020 --> 00:00:42,669

are 14 redpoint maples in total this is




21

00:00:42,869 --> 00:00:44,049

the same type of maple that we used




22

00:00:44,250 --> 00:00:46,448

alongside our driveway and it's gonna be




23

00:00:46,649 --> 00:00:49,000

gorgeous because a beautiful red fall




24

00:00:49,200 --> 00:00:51,338

color and then of course the planters




25

00:00:51,539 --> 00:00:53,858

they make a huge statement and they're




26

00:00:54,058 --> 00:00:55,838

kind of modeled after the box planters




27

00:00:56,039 --> 00:00:57,669

you see in French garden he's kind of




28

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,890

like Versailles they're a little bit




29

00:01:00,090 --> 00:01:01,358

more rustic though which i think is




30

00:01:01,558 --> 00:01:03,399

perfect because it goes with their




31

00:01:03,600 --> 00:01:05,829

country style home the other really fun




32

00:01:06,030 --> 00:01:08,109

thing are the plants that I get to use




33

00:01:08,310 --> 00:01:10,599

in this project we're not going to vary




34

00:01:10,799 --> 00:01:12,549

the type of plants I use very much




35

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:14,738

because we get to try something that's




36

00:01:14,938 --> 00:01:17,259

brand new it's not even out yet because




37

00:01:17,459 --> 00:01:19,028

we work with proven winners on occasion




38

00:01:19,228 --> 00:01:21,609

we get to try out new plants and this is




39

00:01:21,810 --> 00:01:23,679

a new one next year called supertunia




40

00:01:23,879 --> 00:01:25,599

vista snowdrift and if you guys have




41

00:01:25,799 --> 00:01:28,000

ever grown any supertunia in the Vista




42

00:01:28,200 --> 00:01:29,469

line you will know what I'm talking




43

00:01:29,670 --> 00:01:31,209

about like supertunia vista bubblegum




44

00:01:31,409 --> 00:01:34,058

vista fuchsia vista silver berry they




45

00:01:34,259 --> 00:01:36,730

grow huge they are really really




46

00:01:36,930 --> 00:01:38,769

vigorous they have huge amount of bloom




47

00:01:38,969 --> 00:01:40,299

count on them all throughout this season




48

00:01:40,500 --> 00:01:41,918

and I think they're one of the best




49

00:01:42,118 --> 00:01:43,808

suited to go either in the landscape or




50

00:01:44,009 --> 00:01:45,308

in containers in fact I'm going to be




51

00:01:45,509 --> 00:01:46,599

putting some of these in the ground at




52

00:01:46,799 --> 00:01:48,308

my house and we'll be able to kind of




53

00:01:48,509 --> 00:01:50,619

see how they do you know in a container




54

00:01:50,819 --> 00:01:52,959

versus the landscape these I was doing a




55

00:01:53,159 --> 00:01:54,609

little reading on them have said that




56

00:01:54,810 --> 00:01:56,378

they can grow up to two feet tall and




57

00:01:56,578 --> 00:01:57,488

four feet wide




58

00:01:57,688 --> 00:02:00,668

one one supertunia vista snowdrift




59

00:02:00,868 --> 00:02:03,399

that's like a shrub which is amazing so




60

00:02:03,599 --> 00:02:05,619

I'm going to be putting eight of these




61

00:02:05,819 --> 00:02:07,000

in each of these containers which is




62

00:02:07,200 --> 00:02:08,439

probably a little much I could probably




63

00:02:08,639 --> 00:02:10,029

get away with just doing one on each




64

00:02:10,229 --> 00:02:12,610

side but there is an event happening in




65

00:02:12,810 --> 00:02:13,540

about a month at my




66

00:02:13,740 --> 00:02:14,710

parents house and we want to make sure




67

00:02:14,909 --> 00:02:16,210

that they're really full and they look




68

00:02:16,409 --> 00:02:18,040

really good for that so we're gonna use




69

00:02:18,240 --> 00:02:20,200

that primarily around the outside and




70

00:02:20,400 --> 00:02:22,360

then in the middle we're using a purple




71

00:02:22,560 --> 00:02:23,770

fountain grass and I think it's just




72

00:02:23,969 --> 00:02:25,689

gonna be a very striking contrast I




73

00:02:25,889 --> 00:02:27,250

think the white is gonna look really




74

00:02:27,449 --> 00:02:29,800

good up against this black rail fence




75

00:02:30,000 --> 00:02:31,719

right here this is the same color of




76

00:02:31,919 --> 00:02:33,130

stain that we use on our vegetable




77

00:02:33,330 --> 00:02:35,410

garden so it looks very pretty I think




78

00:02:35,610 --> 00:02:37,719

all the way down the fence is new it




79

00:02:37,919 --> 00:02:39,580

just looks so sharp there's a lot more




80

00:02:39,780 --> 00:02:41,320

room for parking and just a lot more




81

00:02:41,520 --> 00:02:42,700

breathing space out here




82

00:02:42,900 --> 00:02:45,070

so we've already one run drip to these




83

00:02:45,270 --> 00:02:46,689

containers and I wanted to talk on that




84

00:02:46,889 --> 00:02:48,730

a little bit because we recently showed




85

00:02:48,930 --> 00:02:51,700

you how we hooked our drip system up to




86

00:02:51,900 --> 00:02:54,219

our irrigation system that it's like in




87

00:02:54,419 --> 00:02:56,020

the ground and I want to show you this




88

00:02:56,219 --> 00:02:58,630

is hooked into a hose bib so there's a




89

00:02:58,830 --> 00:03:00,760

half inch black poly tube in fact you




90

00:03:00,960 --> 00:03:03,700

can see it right here they need to bring




91

00:03:03,900 --> 00:03:05,350

in a little more gravel to cover but




92

00:03:05,550 --> 00:03:07,060

there's a tube that runs the entire




93

00:03:07,259 --> 00:03:10,510

distance the entire run and then they




94

00:03:10,710 --> 00:03:12,880

tapped in with little couplers right




95

00:03:13,080 --> 00:03:15,700

here and there's a quarter inch solid




96

00:03:15,900 --> 00:03:18,310

black tube that runs up the side and it




97

00:03:18,509 --> 00:03:20,590

comes into the container right here you




98

00:03:20,789 --> 00:03:23,950

move my plants and then we've got five




99

00:03:24,150 --> 00:03:25,360

drippers and Erin and I worked on this




100

00:03:25,560 --> 00:03:26,980

little network of drippers this morning




101

00:03:27,180 --> 00:03:28,450

what we're planning on doing is having




102

00:03:28,650 --> 00:03:31,630

one one gallon per hour emitter in




103

00:03:31,830 --> 00:03:33,820

between each set of petunias kind of




104

00:03:34,020 --> 00:03:36,580

like this so there'll be two petunias




105

00:03:36,780 --> 00:03:39,460

two two two and then this one will point




106

00:03:39,659 --> 00:03:41,439

right to the root ball of the grass and




107

00:03:41,639 --> 00:03:42,880

we do have little stakes that will help




108

00:03:43,080 --> 00:03:44,439

once I get everything planted kind of




109

00:03:44,639 --> 00:03:46,960

just tack everything into place so let's




110

00:03:47,159 --> 00:03:48,580

run to the very far end because that's




111

00:03:48,780 --> 00:03:49,990

where it attaches to the hose and I'll




112

00:03:50,189 --> 00:03:52,150

show you how that looks so we're at the




113

00:03:52,349 --> 00:03:54,250

opposite end this is the last container




114

00:03:54,449 --> 00:03:56,170

and then in the corner is where they're




115

00:03:56,370 --> 00:03:58,390

attached to water in fact if you look




116

00:03:58,590 --> 00:04:00,100

over the fence right here you can see




117

00:04:00,300 --> 00:04:02,680

the ditch it's still open on this end we




118

00:04:02,879 --> 00:04:04,450

used to swim in that when we were little




119

00:04:04,650 --> 00:04:06,460

kids but now all the water goes to a




120

00:04:06,659 --> 00:04:08,230

great big pipe right underneath this




121

00:04:08,430 --> 00:04:12,040

hole Elaine so this hose bib right here




122

00:04:12,240 --> 00:04:14,500

is where all the water comes from for




123

00:04:14,699 --> 00:04:16,270

both the Maples and the containers




124

00:04:16,470 --> 00:04:17,770

there's a splitter right here which you




125

00:04:17,970 --> 00:04:19,538

can either use that or you can hook your




126

00:04:19,738 --> 00:04:21,699

timer right into your hose you don't




127

00:04:21,899 --> 00:04:23,050

even have to use a timer if you don't




128

00:04:23,250 --> 00:04:24,939

want to you can come out every day and




129

00:04:25,139 --> 00:04:26,410

turn the hose on and turn it off but the




130

00:04:26,610 --> 00:04:27,160

timer makes




131

00:04:27,360 --> 00:04:29,230

super-nice to where you don't have to do




132

00:04:29,430 --> 00:04:31,088

that this will make everything automatic




133

00:04:31,288 --> 00:04:33,249

and then there's a couple of parts here




134

00:04:33,449 --> 00:04:36,459

that cook onto your timer and then you




135

00:04:36,658 --> 00:04:37,838

can put your drip tubing right up into




136

00:04:38,038 --> 00:04:39,939

those parts one of these runs to the the




137

00:04:40,139 --> 00:04:41,949

red point maples and one runs to the




138

00:04:42,149 --> 00:04:44,139

containers at the amount of time that




139

00:04:44,339 --> 00:04:46,449

you run your containers it's kind of




140

00:04:46,649 --> 00:04:47,949

subjective to the time of year it is




141

00:04:48,149 --> 00:04:49,509

what the weather is like if it's real




142

00:04:49,709 --> 00:04:51,399

windy or not right now they could




143

00:04:51,598 --> 00:04:53,949

probably run these every other day or




144

00:04:54,149 --> 00:04:55,389

every two days to keep them happy




145

00:04:55,589 --> 00:04:57,399

because it's still pretty cool but when




146

00:04:57,598 --> 00:04:58,660

it gets really hot they'll be running




147

00:04:58,860 --> 00:04:59,379

them everyday




148

00:04:59,579 --> 00:05:00,790

so we'll probably start by running them




149

00:05:00,990 --> 00:05:02,439

for thirty minutes just to kind of gauge




150

00:05:02,639 --> 00:05:04,059

how much water comes out and how




151

00:05:04,259 --> 00:05:06,369

saturated the soil is and then we'll go




152

00:05:06,569 --> 00:05:06,939

from there




153

00:05:07,139 --> 00:05:08,480

so now let's start planting




154

00:05:08,680 --> 00:05:55,410

[Music]




155

00:05:57,959 --> 00:06:00,199

you guys I think that these are going to




156

00:06:00,399 --> 00:06:01,790

be absolutely gorgeous and you can




157

00:06:01,990 --> 00:06:03,520

already see them starting to take shape




158

00:06:03,720 --> 00:06:06,889

in purple fountain grass gets huge so




159

00:06:07,089 --> 00:06:08,930

it'll get these huge graceful plumes on




160

00:06:09,129 --> 00:06:11,210

the top and it will fill in beautifully




161

00:06:11,410 --> 00:06:12,949

and then with how this supertunia vistas




162

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:14,810

snowdrift is supposed to grow I think




163

00:06:15,009 --> 00:06:16,730

we're gonna be in for like a super




164

00:06:16,930 --> 00:06:18,710

dramatic show maybe even all the way to




165

00:06:18,910 --> 00:06:21,800

the crown the kitty loves it and I think




166

00:06:22,000 --> 00:06:24,079

with the general design like if you look




167

00:06:24,279 --> 00:06:25,699

down the way and you see the line of




168

00:06:25,899 --> 00:06:27,680

trees in the line of containers I think




169

00:06:27,879 --> 00:06:30,920

going with just one one arrangement the




170

00:06:31,120 --> 00:06:32,329

same thing in every container will be a




171

00:06:32,529 --> 00:06:35,120

very striking effect and it won't you




172

00:06:35,319 --> 00:06:37,338

know jar your eyes too much and also




173

00:06:37,538 --> 00:06:38,960

just using two different plants instead




174

00:06:39,160 --> 00:06:40,400

of using you know a whole bunch of




175

00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:41,990

different colors in this one container




176

00:06:42,189 --> 00:06:44,449

and the other supertunia vistas that are




177

00:06:44,649 --> 00:06:46,009

available are all in the pink family




178

00:06:46,209 --> 00:06:47,509

which is great for me because I love




179

00:06:47,709 --> 00:06:49,400

pink I love to use those in fact I'm




180

00:06:49,600 --> 00:06:50,540

using a whole bunch of my garden this




181

00:06:50,740 --> 00:06:52,550

year but I was so excited to learn that




182

00:06:52,750 --> 00:06:54,020

there was a new one and that it was




183

00:06:54,220 --> 00:06:56,149

white because I do think I could have a




184

00:06:56,348 --> 00:06:58,430

garden completely full of green like




185

00:06:58,629 --> 00:07:00,468

shades of green foliage with white




186

00:07:00,668 --> 00:07:02,870

blooms and I would be happy with that so




187

00:07:03,069 --> 00:07:05,480

when I planted these I did add in some




188

00:07:05,680 --> 00:07:07,160

of this continuous release plant food




189

00:07:07,360 --> 00:07:09,230

like I do in all my containers I think I




190

00:07:09,430 --> 00:07:11,600

added about between 8 and 10 tablespoons




191

00:07:11,800 --> 00:07:13,910

and just mixed it into about the top




192

00:07:14,110 --> 00:07:16,430

couple inches of soil with plants like




193

00:07:16,629 --> 00:07:18,620

this that are huge huge performers they




194

00:07:18,819 --> 00:07:20,180

are really hungry plants they need a lot




195

00:07:20,379 --> 00:07:22,460

of food to perform the best so I always




196

00:07:22,660 --> 00:07:24,199

start with that and then I'm actually




197

00:07:24,399 --> 00:07:26,540

gonna give my parents a tub of this this




198

00:07:26,740 --> 00:07:27,980

is what I use in my containers on a




199

00:07:28,180 --> 00:07:30,170

weekly basis at home so they'll be




200

00:07:30,370 --> 00:07:31,910

feeding these plants every single week




201

00:07:32,110 --> 00:07:34,399

with a water soluble and that will keep




202

00:07:34,598 --> 00:07:36,588

them very happy and full of bloom so




203

00:07:36,788 --> 00:07:38,600

anyway that is it for this video I was




204

00:07:38,800 --> 00:07:40,278

just so excited to show you this brand




205

00:07:40,478 --> 00:07:41,930

new plant again it's not out this year




206

00:07:42,129 --> 00:07:43,910

this is gonna be brand new next year I'm




207

00:07:44,110 --> 00:07:45,319

so I'm really excited to show you guys




208

00:07:45,519 --> 00:07:47,060

progress updates throughout this season




209

00:07:47,259 --> 00:07:48,680

to see what it looks like because maybe




210

00:07:48,879 --> 00:07:49,850

this is something you'll want to add




211

00:07:50,050 --> 00:07:52,040

into your garden next year so anyway




212

00:07:52,240 --> 00:07:53,028

thank you guys so much for watching




213

00:07:53,228 --> 00:07:54,528

today and we will see you in the next




214

00:07:54,728 --> 00:07:55,350

one bye

hey guys how's it going today I'm




planting up my window boxes here on this




side of our house and I've got it kind




of laid out how I want it to look




nothing's planted yet they're all still




in their cans but I think it's gonna be




amazing so I just want to go through all




of the plants real quick and then we'll




actually get them in the window baskets




and see how it really looks all kind of




intermingled together so first off I




want to go through the plants that are




gonna be kind of sitting toward the back




of the window box I've got several who




Kuras here these are called wild berry




there is own four through nine perennial




actually I have a spot in my yard picked




out that I want to plant where I want to




plant these so I can use them in the




window boxes and then plant them out




this fall and I love to do that because




then I don't feel so bad




jamming my pots so full of stuff when I




get to use them again so these grow




about 10 14 inches tall and then they'll




spaced out probably in the landscape




about 18 or so inches and then they




throw up these really pretty bloom




spikes so like really pretty dark purple




stem with kind of these creamy pink




flowers and you can kind of see him




sticking up from all the hookers there




I've got four of these total in between




each heuchera




I'm going to plant a Carrick's called




Amazon mist




now Carrick's like this they can do full




Sun they can also do a little bit of




shade and this area actually gets a




pretty strong block of Morning Sun like




first thing it's pretty quick like maybe




two hours or so then the rest of the day




it's in shade but I find that Carrick's




like this does pretty well it won't grow




enormous it'll just kind of sit looking




like this all summer long which is




perfectly fine with me because I don't




really like to plant my window boxes




with super tall things because I like to




have the view but most especially this




grass has amazing mint green color which




looks beautiful I mean look at it in




between those who grows it's just




absolutely perfect gorgeous and then




lining around kind of the front area




here I've got several ivy I think




there's one two three four five ivy




called duck foot and it's got this




really neat kind of Stickley lobed leave




leaf instead of being really pointy like




some of your Ivy's might be this is also




a perennial so the Ivy's I don't




typically plant in the ground I just




save them over in our cold frame and




then I'll




in containers next year then we've got




some surefire rose begonias which we




just posted a video recently where we




planted a whole bunch of these




underneath our Chinese rain tree and I'm




really looking forward to having this




won't be the really the only flower




color in this arrangement all the rest




of it it's pretty much foliage I mean




the heuchera has flowers but they're




fairly small so this will be our big pop




of color and then this might be the one




I'm most excited about this is a coleus




called chocolate drop and it's instead




of being strictly upright it will




actually trail out of a container so




I've planted I'm gonna put let's see




I've planned to put four in here so they




can kind of just fill in and spill down




the front




I love the leaf on this one look how




interesting that is and I think that the




color on the interior interior of the




leaf will look really pretty with this




heuchera right here so that is the




lineup of plants so now I'm going to




take them all out I'm going to take part




of the soil while most of the soil out




from last year I still have that in this




box will get fresh stuff in some fruit




fertilizer and then we'll plant




[Music]




[Music]




I think it turned out so pretty and it




is chock-full of plants like when I got




to the last round with these Chocolate




Drops sedum I thought oh should I




squeeze those in there should I just




hold off but I think it's such a




beautiful addition and I was so excited




about using the plant that I just went




ahead and found some room and I'm not




really concerned about putting things so




close together in a shade container not




like I would be with a full Sun




container when we plant supertunias in




purple fountain grass and vertigo




Pennisetum those kind of things need a




ton of room to grow but I don't expect




really like the heuchera and the




kerrick's won't put on a whole lot more




growth they'll stay pretty much the same




size the begonias may push a little




growth if they were in more Sun they




would probably get a little bit bigger




so I'm really not that concerned I think




all of this pillars will put on growth




downward which is great you know but




we'll see as the season goes I did put




fresh soil in with slow release




fertilizer and these will be fertilized




on a probably once a week to every ten




day schedule




I don't water these quite as often as I




do my son containers so I just kind of I




don't do them quite as consistently with




my full Sun containers we want fertilize




every week without fail




so this one's done now I've got the




second one to go




[Music]




the second box is planted and I love




love how they look all of the plants are




just so pretty together and you know




they're surefire Rose begonia the pop of




pink in here is really pretty but I




honestly think that I would enjoy this




arrangement just as much without the




bloom color because there's so many




different colors and textures in just




the leaves that I think it makes it




really interesting and I do think I




called this chocolate drop coleus a




sedum earlier I don't know what I was




thinking I might have been thinking




lemon coral sedum lemon and chocolate




and I don't know but it's definitely a




coleus but I think that that is such a




beautiful touch especially right




underneath the heuchera so I did water




them in from overhead today just to make




sure all their root balls were settled




into their new homes but we do have a




drip system setup Erin and I set it up




earlier on this spring so there are five




half gallon and our emitters spread




evenly throughout this box so unless I'm




fertilizing I shouldn't have to bring




any water up here which is awesome these




plants are also very low maintenance the




only thing I'll probably do every once




in a while is come in and groom off any




spent bloom heads so any of these spikes




of blooms that are spent I'll clip off




down here below like the leaf canopy and




then the Surefire Rose begonia I




shouldn't I don't need to deadhead it




will keep blooming even if you don't




deadhead it but aesthetically I like the




way it looks when they're all cleaned up




so now I want to kind of back up and




take a look at the rest of the patio




area there's not a whole lot going on




for summer yet except for the window




boxes but it kind of just like inspires




me makes me want to keep adding more




pretty things I have these containers by




the door with the boxwood cones that




wintered over in here and then my




pansies from earlier this spring they're




still looking really sweet so I'll




probably keep them in here for a little




while until I decide what I even want to




put in these pots I might play around




with a little bit more foliage texture




and color like maybe more Chocolate




Drops sedum and some Goldilocks creeping




Jenny something like that I'm just not




sure yet and then you can see our drip




system right here so we had to run it




from the other side of the house and




there's no water source over on this




other side so we had to run it along the




ground so I do still need to order a rug




to put right in front of the door so we




can kind of tuck in all this tubing and




you won't see that anymore




and it'll look a little bit more




polished up here but I think this is a




wonderful start for summer I hope you




guys enjoyed this video I really loved




putting these together we will see you




in the next one bye

hey guys how's it going today I'm




planting up my window boxes here on this




side of our house and I've got it kind




of laid out how I want it to look




nothing's planted yet they're all still




in their cans but I think it's gonna be




amazing so I just want to go through all




of the plants real quick and then we'll




actually get them in the window baskets




and see how it really looks all kind of




intermingled together so first off I




want to go through the plants that are




gonna be kind of sitting toward the back




of the window box I've got several who




Kuras here these are called wild berry




there is own four through nine perennial




actually I have a spot in my yard picked




out that I want to plant where I want to




plant these so I can use them in the




window boxes and then plant them out




this fall and I love to do that because




then I don't feel so bad




jamming my pots so full of stuff when I




get to use them again so these grow




about 10 14 inches tall and then they'll




spaced out probably in the landscape




about 18 or so inches and then they




throw up these really pretty bloom




spikes so like really pretty dark purple




stem with kind of these creamy pink




flowers and you can kind of see him




sticking up from all the hookers there




I've got four of these total in between




each heuchera




I'm going to plant a Carrick's called




Amazon mist




now Carrick's like this they can do full




Sun they can also do a little bit of




shade and this area actually gets a




pretty strong block of Morning Sun like




first thing it's pretty quick like maybe




two hours or so then the rest of the day




it's in shade but I find that Carrick's




like this does pretty well it won't grow




enormous it'll just kind of sit looking




like this all summer long which is




perfectly fine with me because I don't




really like to plant my window boxes




with super tall things because I like to




have the view but most especially this




grass has amazing mint green color which




looks beautiful I mean look at it in




between those who grows it's just




absolutely perfect gorgeous and then




lining around kind of the front area




here I've got several ivy I think




there's one two three four five ivy




called duck foot and it's got this




really neat kind of Stickley lobed leave




leaf instead of being really pointy like




some of your Ivy's might be this is also




a perennial so the Ivy's I don't




typically plant in the ground I just




save them over in our cold frame and




then I'll




in containers next year then we've got




some surefire rose begonias which we




just posted a video recently where we




planted a whole bunch of these




underneath our Chinese rain tree and I'm




really looking forward to having this




won't be the really the only flower




color in this arrangement all the rest




of it it's pretty much foliage I mean




the heuchera has flowers but they're




fairly small so this will be our big pop




of color and then this might be the one




I'm most excited about this is a coleus




called chocolate drop and it's instead




of being strictly upright it will




actually trail out of a container so




I've planted I'm gonna put let's see




I've planned to put four in here so they




can kind of just fill in and spill down




the front




I love the leaf on this one look how




interesting that is and I think that the




color on the interior interior of the




leaf will look really pretty with this




heuchera right here so that is the




lineup of plants so now I'm going to




take them all out I'm going to take part




of the soil while most of the soil out




from last year I still have that in this




box will get fresh stuff in some fruit




fertilizer and then we'll plant




[Music]




[Music]




I think it turned out so pretty and it




is chock-full of plants like when I got




to the last round with these Chocolate




Drops sedum I thought oh should I




squeeze those in there should I just




hold off but I think it's such a




beautiful addition and I was so excited




about using the plant that I just went




ahead and found some room and I'm not




really concerned about putting things so

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,389

hey guys how's it going we're in front




2

00:00:01,589 --> 00:00:02,619

of the chicken coop this morning getting




3

00:00:02,819 --> 00:00:04,750

ready to do some planting the coop is




4

00:00:04,950 --> 00:00:07,240

pretty much done on the outside anyway




5

00:00:07,440 --> 00:00:08,710

just got the shutters and stove




6

00:00:08,910 --> 00:00:10,390

yesterday and it's looking a little bit




7

00:00:10,589 --> 00:00:12,910

more put together now I do have two




8

00:00:13,109 --> 00:00:15,040

serbian spruces here on either side of




9

00:00:15,240 --> 00:00:16,990

the coop and that's going to be kind of




10

00:00:17,190 --> 00:00:19,570

my grounding formality for this area and




11

00:00:19,769 --> 00:00:21,400

I was kind of like thinking should I do




12

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,710

more boxwood hedging but I think what I




13

00:00:23,910 --> 00:00:25,600

want to do is keep this area a little




14

00:00:25,800 --> 00:00:27,999

bit more free and full of color so I




15

00:00:28,199 --> 00:00:29,530

thought I'd be a really fun thing to




16

00:00:29,730 --> 00:00:30,699

show you guys some of the plants I'm




17

00:00:30,899 --> 00:00:32,288

putting in because I talked about




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:33,939

recipes and containers all the time like




19

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,469

what plants to put together that look




20

00:00:35,670 --> 00:00:36,878

really good together and that are




21

00:00:37,079 --> 00:00:39,399

compatible so I want to do that today




22

00:00:39,600 --> 00:00:40,869

showing you some really great things




23

00:00:41,070 --> 00:00:42,869

that attract butterflies in particular




24

00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:45,399

so we are gonna be planting salvia




25

00:00:45,600 --> 00:00:48,159

echinacea and dahlias I do want to talk




26

00:00:48,359 --> 00:00:49,599

to you about each one of the plants so




27

00:00:49,799 --> 00:00:51,070

let's get set up and then we can talk




28

00:00:51,270 --> 00:00:52,779

about them so the first one is called




29

00:00:52,979 --> 00:00:54,759

delightful lively lavender and you guys




30

00:00:54,960 --> 00:00:56,320

might remember I planted the mystic




31

00:00:56,520 --> 00:00:57,849

illusion Dahlia last year which has




32

00:00:58,049 --> 00:00:59,649

really dark foliage and really bright




33

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,959

yellow flowers they performed so well




34

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:04,539

I'm really excited to give this variety




35

00:01:04,739 --> 00:01:06,369

a try and I love the color of the




36

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:09,369

flowers so this one grows about 2 to 3




37

00:01:09,569 --> 00:01:11,469

feet tall and about 20 inches wide and I




38

00:01:11,670 --> 00:01:12,909

did look on the tag they recommend




39

00:01:13,109 --> 00:01:15,039

spacing about like 12 to 16 inches so I




40

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,049

did put him quite close together but




41

00:01:17,250 --> 00:01:18,519

honestly of the 3 I'm going to show you




42

00:01:18,719 --> 00:01:20,109

today I think you could just do one of




43

00:01:20,310 --> 00:01:21,640

each in a little space like maybe buy a




44

00:01:21,840 --> 00:01:24,159

mailbox or tucked into a sunny spot in




45

00:01:24,359 --> 00:01:25,929

your landscape and you would get kind of




46

00:01:26,129 --> 00:01:27,340

the same effect you would get all the




47

00:01:27,540 --> 00:01:29,289

color and the pollinator attracting




48

00:01:29,489 --> 00:01:32,109

quality so I think I've got 6 or so




49

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,849

right back in here the cool thing too




50

00:01:34,049 --> 00:01:35,349

about these dahlias is that they don't




51

00:01:35,549 --> 00:01:37,299

form they were bred to not form tubers




52

00:01:37,500 --> 00:01:40,058

they may form a few but they won't form




53

00:01:40,259 --> 00:01:41,590

them like a normal Dahlia will which




54

00:01:41,790 --> 00:01:43,238

means you get earlier blooms in the




55

00:01:43,438 --> 00:01:45,278

season so they'll start blooming really




56

00:01:45,478 --> 00:01:46,750

early and then they'll bloom all the way




57

00:01:46,950 --> 00:01:48,039

through frost because all of their




58

00:01:48,239 --> 00:01:49,899

energy gets sent into bloom production




59

00:01:50,099 --> 00:01:51,969

you also don't have to deadhead them you




60

00:01:52,170 --> 00:01:54,399

can I tend to like to do that because it




61

00:01:54,599 --> 00:01:55,808

makes them look a little bit better it




62

00:01:56,009 --> 00:01:58,149

will help them rebloom a little bit more




63

00:01:58,349 --> 00:02:00,518

but it's not 100% necessary they still




64

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,099

will keep blooming and their foliage is




65

00:02:03,299 --> 00:02:04,959

resistant to disease which I know that




66

00:02:05,159 --> 00:02:06,579

can be a problem like powdery mildew and




67

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,710

things like that in some areas the next




68

00:02:08,909 --> 00:02:10,539

flower are these beautiful bright yellow




69

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:12,390

echinacea they're called yellow mite




70

00:02:12,590 --> 00:02:14,580

they're actually new next year this




71

00:02:14,780 --> 00:02:17,069

particular variety I was able to get my




72

00:02:17,269 --> 00:02:18,450

hands on a few of them to try them out




73

00:02:18,650 --> 00:02:20,069

my garden to see how they grew and how




74

00:02:20,269 --> 00:02:21,990

they did I think it's gonna be beautiful




75

00:02:22,189 --> 00:02:24,210

up here with this layer of bright pink




76

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:25,770

and then the sunshine yellow it's gonna




77

00:02:25,969 --> 00:02:28,350

be so happy these are a perennial I




78

00:02:28,550 --> 00:02:29,520

don't think I mentioned that these are




79

00:02:29,719 --> 00:02:32,099

an annual these are Hardy to zone 8 so




80

00:02:32,299 --> 00:02:33,420

they might be a perennial for some of




81

00:02:33,620 --> 00:02:35,580

you but these are winter hardy down to




82

00:02:35,780 --> 00:02:38,310

his own 4 there is on 4 through 8 so




83

00:02:38,509 --> 00:02:40,080

they do really well in our zone 5 garden




84

00:02:40,280 --> 00:02:42,030

echinacea is in general I don't have




85

00:02:42,229 --> 00:02:43,469

experience with this particular variety




86

00:02:43,669 --> 00:02:45,420

yet but I've grown lots of different




87

00:02:45,620 --> 00:02:46,890

echinacea Xand they're really reliable




88

00:02:47,090 --> 00:02:50,069

here also really great if you have bad




89

00:02:50,269 --> 00:02:50,670

soil




90

00:02:50,870 --> 00:02:52,920

they're so adaptable to all different




91

00:02:53,120 --> 00:02:54,930

kinds of soil types they can take a




92

00:02:55,129 --> 00:02:56,640

light amount of shade they perform the




93

00:02:56,840 --> 00:02:58,618

best in a full Sun area where we're at




94

00:02:58,818 --> 00:03:00,149

in front of the chicken coop gets shade




95

00:03:00,348 --> 00:03:01,860

in the morning but it gets strong




96

00:03:02,060 --> 00:03:05,160

afternoon Sun so I think that they're




97

00:03:05,360 --> 00:03:06,660

going to do really really well up here




98

00:03:06,860 --> 00:03:08,189

they should perform nicely they also




99

00:03:08,389 --> 00:03:10,980

attract pollinators bees and butterflies




100

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:13,259

so both of these are great for that and




101

00:03:13,459 --> 00:03:15,118

the last flower in this kind of trio




102

00:03:15,318 --> 00:03:17,400

recipe of pollinator attracted plants is




103

00:03:17,599 --> 00:03:19,800

Indiglo girl salvia we just did a video




104

00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:22,289

on these not too long ago this is a new




105

00:03:22,489 --> 00:03:23,759

variety this year and I was so excited




106

00:03:23,959 --> 00:03:25,259

about it because they have such a




107

00:03:25,459 --> 00:03:27,569

striking bloom they have a really thick




108

00:03:27,769 --> 00:03:29,759

bloom stock like it's really like big




109

00:03:29,959 --> 00:03:31,830

flowers and then the calyx that holds




110

00:03:32,030 --> 00:03:34,319

the bloom onto the stem is a little bit




111

00:03:34,519 --> 00:03:36,118

darker color so when they are done




112

00:03:36,318 --> 00:03:37,560

blooming they still kind of look like




113

00:03:37,759 --> 00:03:39,090

they're in bloom so I don't feel like




114

00:03:39,289 --> 00:03:40,379

I'm in such a rush to get them




115

00:03:40,579 --> 00:03:43,230

deadheaded so these grow about 20 to 22




116

00:03:43,430 --> 00:03:44,610

inches tall and I don't think I




117

00:03:44,810 --> 00:03:46,110

mentioned these grow at 18 inches taller




118

00:03:46,310 --> 00:03:48,060

so so I should have kind of a nice




119

00:03:48,259 --> 00:03:50,219

stair-step effect with this trio right




120

00:03:50,419 --> 00:03:52,980

here and these attract bees hummingbirds




121

00:03:53,180 --> 00:03:55,800

and butterflies so these should be just




122

00:03:56,000 --> 00:03:56,819

kind of like a powerhouse for




123

00:03:57,019 --> 00:03:58,920

pollinators and I'm really excited about




124

00:03:59,120 --> 00:04:00,990

that and the last thing all three of




125

00:04:01,189 --> 00:04:02,759

these should be fairly compatible in




126

00:04:02,959 --> 00:04:04,710

terms of light and water like I said




127

00:04:04,909 --> 00:04:06,569

they all perform in full Sun which they




128

00:04:06,769 --> 00:04:09,719

will get the echinacea and salvia can




129

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:12,450

handle some drought but they do perform




130

00:04:12,650 --> 00:04:13,770

best when they get consistent moisture




131

00:04:13,969 --> 00:04:15,210

not a lot of moisture but just




132

00:04:15,409 --> 00:04:17,579

consistent the dahlias however I will




133

00:04:17,779 --> 00:04:19,770

make sure to give consistent moisture to




134

00:04:19,970 --> 00:04:22,199

I also give them more fertilizer I'll be




135

00:04:22,399 --> 00:04:24,149

fertilizing these on a weekly basis when




136

00:04:24,348 --> 00:04:26,069

I come around to do all my containers




137

00:04:26,269 --> 00:04:27,930

the echinacea and salvia I'll be putting




138

00:04:28,129 --> 00:04:29,610

some starter fertilizer in the hole with




139

00:04:29,810 --> 00:04:32,160

them today and that'll probably be it




140

00:04:32,360 --> 00:04:34,020

for this year until I fertilize well I




141

00:04:34,220 --> 00:04:35,639

may fertilize later on in the summer or




142

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:37,860

again next spring and for that I would




143

00:04:38,060 --> 00:04:39,689

use a fertilizer like plant tone or




144

00:04:39,889 --> 00:04:41,999

flower tone and you might notice a




145

00:04:42,199 --> 00:04:44,009

couple other things hanging out in this




146

00:04:44,209 --> 00:04:46,139

area I'm just trying some stuff out so I




147

00:04:46,339 --> 00:04:47,759

am gonna be planting a climbing rose




148

00:04:47,959 --> 00:04:50,100

called Zephyr and ruin I've got four of




149

00:04:50,300 --> 00:04:51,869

them that are gonna be trained up the




150

00:04:52,069 --> 00:04:53,520

run and kind of over the roof there are




151

00:04:53,720 --> 00:04:55,619

thornless pink rose that blooms all




152

00:04:55,819 --> 00:04:57,420

summer so we got a lot of color there




153

00:04:57,620 --> 00:04:59,249

I've got a purple fountain grass that I




154

00:04:59,449 --> 00:05:00,660

thought would be really pretty having a




155

00:05:00,860 --> 00:05:02,968

dark grassy texture right here and then




156

00:05:03,168 --> 00:05:05,129

a Miss violet butterfly bush which I'm




157

00:05:05,329 --> 00:05:06,660

probably not gonna plant today I'm just




158

00:05:06,860 --> 00:05:08,699

kind of I have it set there just to try




159

00:05:08,899 --> 00:05:10,709

it out so I just wanted to mention those




160

00:05:10,908 --> 00:05:12,149

three things cuz you will see those




161

00:05:12,348 --> 00:05:13,559

alright let's get these things in the




162

00:05:13,759 --> 00:05:14,220

ground




163

00:05:14,420 --> 00:05:37,810

[Music]




164

00:05:39,930 --> 00:05:54,709

[Music]




165

00:06:02,540 --> 00:06:12,869

166

167

168

169

[Music]




170

00:07:07,329 --> 00:07:10,189

this area turned out so cute I love it I




171

00:07:10,389 --> 00:07:11,389

think this is probably one of the most




172

00:07:11,589 --> 00:07:13,309

cheerful spots I have in my garden right




173

00:07:13,509 --> 00:07:15,588

now and it's funny how one project like




174

00:07:15,788 --> 00:07:16,879

just laying out some flowers getting




175

00:07:17,079 --> 00:07:18,110

them in the ground kind of snowballs




176

00:07:18,310 --> 00:07:20,149

into running all the drip irrigation




177

00:07:20,348 --> 00:07:21,920

getting the mulch down and planting up




178

00:07:22,120 --> 00:07:24,468

my window box so I decided instead of




179

00:07:24,668 --> 00:07:26,240

putting any color in here in terms of




180

00:07:26,439 --> 00:07:28,490

blooms just to do foliage so these are




181

00:07:28,689 --> 00:07:31,040

three clipped Sprinter box woods with




182

00:07:31,240 --> 00:07:32,718

Goldilocks creeping Jenny planted




183

00:07:32,918 --> 00:07:35,149

underneath and I think the foliage




184

00:07:35,348 --> 00:07:37,129

colors contrast each other really nicely




185

00:07:37,329 --> 00:07:39,319

and I think if I would have had color in




186

00:07:39,519 --> 00:07:40,610

here and a whole bunch of color down




187

00:07:40,810 --> 00:07:41,869

here it would have been a little bit too




188

00:07:42,069 --> 00:07:43,730

much Plus that brings a little bit more




189

00:07:43,930 --> 00:07:46,160

of a formal touch to the area and this




190

00:07:46,360 --> 00:07:49,040

spot down below can just be free and




191

00:07:49,240 --> 00:07:51,410

kind of more country feel a little bit




192

00:07:51,610 --> 00:07:52,670

more abundant with blooms




193

00:07:52,870 --> 00:07:54,679

so I did end up planting the rose and




194

00:07:54,879 --> 00:07:56,149

the purple fountain grass and then I'll




195

00:07:56,348 --> 00:07:58,850

kind of just keep moving down the way to




196

00:07:59,050 --> 00:08:00,619

finish up this whole area I did figure




197

00:08:00,819 --> 00:08:02,899

out that I needed one more Indiglo girl




198

00:08:03,098 --> 00:08:04,218

salvia so that's something I'm gonna




199

00:08:04,418 --> 00:08:05,660

keep my eye out for it down at the




200

00:08:05,860 --> 00:08:07,579

garden center this season just to finish




201

00:08:07,779 --> 00:08:09,800

my little trio and then I will be




202

00:08:10,000 --> 00:08:11,360

probably incorporating that Miss violet




203

00:08:11,560 --> 00:08:12,920

butterfly bush another plant that




204

00:08:13,120 --> 00:08:15,139

attracts butterflies and then possibly a




205

00:08:15,339 --> 00:08:18,170

small ornamental very small growing




206

00:08:18,370 --> 00:08:20,449

evergreen for some evergreen interest in




207

00:08:20,649 --> 00:08:22,519

here but my whole goal is just to kind




208

00:08:22,718 --> 00:08:26,088

of keep the area colorful and not too




209

00:08:26,288 --> 00:08:27,860

big I don't want anything to really




210

00:08:28,060 --> 00:08:31,040

block the run too much so anyway that's




211

00:08:31,240 --> 00:08:33,649

it so if you guys are looking for some




212

00:08:33,849 --> 00:08:35,750

plants to attract butterflies look for




213

00:08:35,950 --> 00:08:38,599

salvia dahlias and echinacea hope you




214

00:08:38,799 --> 00:08:40,189

guys enjoyed this video and we will see




215

00:08:40,389 --> 00:08:41,629

you in the next one

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,389

hey guys how's it going we're in front




2

00:00:01,589 --> 00:00:02,619

of the chicken coop this morning getting




3

00:00:02,819 --> 00:00:04,750

ready to do some planting the coop is




4

00:00:04,950 --> 00:00:07,240

pretty much done on the outside anyway




5

00:00:07,440 --> 00:00:08,710

just got the shutters and stove




6

00:00:08,910 --> 00:00:10,390

yesterday and it's looking a little bit




7

00:00:10,589 --> 00:00:12,910

more put together now I do have two




8

00:00:13,109 --> 00:00:15,040

serbian spruces here on either side of




9

00:00:15,240 --> 00:00:16,990

the coop and that's going to be kind of




10

00:00:17,190 --> 00:00:19,570

my grounding formality for this area and




11

00:00:19,769 --> 00:00:21,400

I was kind of like thinking should I do




12

00:00:21,600 --> 00:00:23,710

more boxwood hedging but I think what I




13

00:00:23,910 --> 00:00:25,600

want to do is keep this area a little




14

00:00:25,800 --> 00:00:27,999

bit more free and full of color so I




15

00:00:28,199 --> 00:00:29,530

thought I'd be a really fun thing to




16

00:00:29,730 --> 00:00:30,699

show you guys some of the plants I'm




17

00:00:30,899 --> 00:00:32,288

putting in because I talked about




18

00:00:32,488 --> 00:00:33,939

recipes and containers all the time like




19

00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:35,469

what plants to put together that look




20

00:00:35,670 --> 00:00:36,878

really good together and that are




21

00:00:37,079 --> 00:00:39,399

compatible so I want to do that today




22

00:00:39,600 --> 00:00:40,869

showing you some really great things




23

00:00:41,070 --> 00:00:42,869

that attract butterflies in particular




24

00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:45,399

so we are gonna be planting salvia




25

00:00:45,600 --> 00:00:48,159

echinacea and dahlias I do want to talk




26

00:00:48,359 --> 00:00:49,599

to you about each one of the plants so




27

00:00:49,799 --> 00:00:51,070

let's get set up and then we can talk




28

00:00:51,270 --> 00:00:52,779

about them so the first one is called




29

00:00:52,979 --> 00:00:54,759

delightful lively lavender and you guys




30

00:00:54,960 --> 00:00:56,320

might remember I planted the mystic




31

00:00:56,520 --> 00:00:57,849

illusion Dahlia last year which has




32

00:00:58,049 --> 00:00:59,649

really dark foliage and really bright




33

00:00:59,850 --> 00:01:01,959

yellow flowers they performed so well




34

00:01:02,159 --> 00:01:04,539

I'm really excited to give this variety




35

00:01:04,739 --> 00:01:06,369

a try and I love the color of the




36

00:01:06,569 --> 00:01:09,369

flowers so this one grows about 2 to 3




37

00:01:09,569 --> 00:01:11,469

feet tall and about 20 inches wide and I




38

00:01:11,670 --> 00:01:12,909

did look on the tag they recommend




39

00:01:13,109 --> 00:01:15,039

spacing about like 12 to 16 inches so I




40

00:01:15,239 --> 00:01:17,049

did put him quite close together but




41

00:01:17,250 --> 00:01:18,519

honestly of the 3 I'm going to show you




42

00:01:18,719 --> 00:01:20,109

today I think you could just do one of




43

00:01:20,310 --> 00:01:21,640

each in a little space like maybe buy a




44

00:01:21,840 --> 00:01:24,159

mailbox or tucked into a sunny spot in




45

00:01:24,359 --> 00:01:25,929

your landscape and you would get kind of




46

00:01:26,129 --> 00:01:27,340

the same effect you would get all the




47

00:01:27,540 --> 00:01:29,289

color and the pollinator attracting




48

00:01:29,489 --> 00:01:32,109

quality so I think I've got 6 or so




49

00:01:32,310 --> 00:01:33,849

right back in here the cool thing too




50

00:01:34,049 --> 00:01:35,349

about these dahlias is that they don't




51

00:01:35,549 --> 00:01:37,299

form they were bred to not form tubers




52

00:01:37,500 --> 00:01:40,058

they may form a few but they won't form




53

00:01:40,259 --> 00:01:41,590

them like a normal Dahlia will which




54

00:01:41,790 --> 00:01:43,238

means you get earlier blooms in the




55

00:01:43,438 --> 00:01:45,278

season so they'll start blooming really




56

00:01:45,478 --> 00:01:46,750

early and then they'll bloom all the way




57

00:01:46,950 --> 00:01:48,039

through frost because all of their




58

00:01:48,239 --> 00:01:49,899

energy gets sent into bloom production




59

00:01:50,099 --> 00:01:51,969

you also don't have to deadhead them you




60

00:01:52,170 --> 00:01:54,399

can I tend to like to do that because it




61

00:01:54,599 --> 00:01:55,808

makes them look a little bit better it




62

00:01:56,009 --> 00:01:58,149

will help them rebloom a little bit more




63

00:01:58,349 --> 00:02:00,518

but it's not 100% necessary they still




64

00:02:00,718 --> 00:02:03,099

will keep blooming and their foliage is




65

00:02:03,299 --> 00:02:04,959

resistant to disease which I know that




66

00:02:05,159 --> 00:02:06,579

can be a problem like powdery mildew and




67

00:02:06,780 --> 00:02:08,710

things like that in some areas the next




68

00:02:08,909 --> 00:02:10,539

flower are these beautiful bright yellow




69

00:02:10,739 --> 00:02:12,390

echinacea they're called yellow mite




70

00:02:12,590 --> 00:02:14,580

they're actually new next year this




71

00:02:14,780 --> 00:02:17,069

particular variety I was able to get my




72

00:02:17,269 --> 00:02:18,450

hands on a few of them to try them out




73

00:02:18,650 --> 00:02:20,069

my garden to see how they grew and how




74

00:02:20,269 --> 00:02:21,990

they did I think it's gonna be beautiful




75

00:02:22,189 --> 00:02:24,210

up here with this layer of bright pink




76

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:25,770

and then the sunshine yellow it's gonna




77

00:02:25,969 --> 00:02:28,350

be so happy these are a perennial I




78

00:02:28,550 --> 00:02:29,520

don't think I mentioned that these are




79

00:02:29,719 --> 00:02:32,099

an annual these are Hardy to zone 8 so




80

00:02:32,299 --> 00:02:33,420

they might be a perennial for some of




81

00:02:33,620 --> 00:02:35,580

you but these are winter hardy down to




82

00:02:35,780 --> 00:02:38,310

his own 4 there is on 4 through 8 so




83

00:02:38,509 --> 00:02:40,080

they do really well in our zone 5 garden




84

00:02:40,280 --> 00:02:42,030

echinacea is in general I don't have




85

00:02:42,229 --> 00:02:43,469

experience with this particular variety




86

00:02:43,669 --> 00:02:45,420

yet but I've grown lots of different




87

00:02:45,620 --> 00:02:46,890

echinacea Xand they're really reliable




88

00:02:47,090 --> 00:02:50,069

here also really great if you have bad




89

00:02:50,269 --> 00:02:50,670

soil




90

00:02:50,870 --> 00:02:52,920

they're so adaptable to all different




91

00:02:53,120 --> 00:02:54,930

kinds of soil types they can take a




92

00:02:55,129 --> 00:02:56,640

light amount of shade they perform the




93

00:02:56,840 --> 00:02:58,618

best in a full Sun area where we're at




94

00:02:58,818 --> 00:03:00,149

in front of the chicken coop gets shade




95

00:03:00,348 --> 00:03:01,860

in the morning but it gets strong




96

00:03:02,060 --> 00:03:05,160

afternoon Sun so I think that they're




97

00:03:05,360 --> 00:03:06,660

going to do really really well up here




98

00:03:06,860 --> 00:03:08,189

they should perform nicely they also




99

00:03:08,389 --> 00:03:10,980

attract pollinators bees and butterflies




100

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:13,259

so both of these are great for that and




101

00:03:13,459 --> 00:03:15,118

the last flower in this kind of trio




102

00:03:15,318 --> 00:03:17,400

recipe of pollinator attracted plants is




103

00:03:17,599 --> 00:03:19,800

Indiglo girl salvia we just did a video




104

00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:22,289

on these not too long ago this is a new




105

00:03:22,489 --> 00:03:23,759

variety this year and I was so excited




106

00:03:23,959 --> 00:03:25,259

about it because they have such a




107

00:03:25,459 --> 00:03:27,569

striking bloom they have a really thick




108

00:03:27,769 --> 00:03:29,759

bloom stock like it's really like big




109

00:03:29,959 --> 00:03:31,830

flowers and then the calyx that holds




110

00:03:32,030 --> 00:03:34,319

the bloom onto the stem is a little bit




111

00:03:34,519 --> 00:03:36,118

darker color so when they are done




112

00:03:36,318 --> 00:03:37,560

blooming they still kind of look like




113

00:03:37,759 --> 00:03:39,090

they're in bloom so I don't feel like




114

00:03:39,289 --> 00:03:40,379

I'm in such a rush to get them




115

00:03:40,579 --> 00:03:43,230

deadheaded so these grow about 20 to 22




116

00:03:43,430 --> 00:03:44,610

inches tall and I don't think I




117

00:03:44,810 --> 00:03:46,110

mentioned these grow at 18 inches taller




118

00:03:46,310 --> 00:03:48,060

so so I should have kind of a nice




119

00:03:48,259 --> 00:03:50,219

stair-step effect with this trio right




120

00:03:50,419 --> 00:03:52,980

here and these attract bees hummingbirds




121

00:03:53,180 --> 00:03:55,800

and butterflies so these should be just




122

00:03:56,000 --> 00:03:56,819

kind of like a powerhouse for




123

00:03:57,019 --> 00:03:58,920

pollinators and I'm really excited about




124

00:03:59,120 --> 00:04:00,990

that and the last thing all three of




125

00:04:01,189 --> 00:04:02,759

these should be fairly compatible in




126

00:04:02,959 --> 00:04:04,710

terms of light and water like I said




127

00:04:04,909 --> 00:04:06,569

they all perform in full Sun which they




128

00:04:06,769 --> 00:04:09,719

will get the echinacea and salvia can




129

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:12,450

handle some drought but they do perform




130

00:04:12,650 --> 00:04:13,770

best when they get consistent moisture




131

00:04:13,969 --> 00:04:15,210

not a lot of moisture but just




132

00:04:15,409 --> 00:04:17,579

consistent the dahlias however I will




133

00:04:17,779 --> 00:04:19,770

make sure to give consistent moisture to




134

00:04:19,970 --> 00:04:22,199

I also give them more fertilizer I'll be




135

00:04:22,399 --> 00:04:24,149

fertilizing these on a weekly basis when




136

00:04:24,348 --> 00:04:26,069

I come around to do all my containers




137

00:04:26,269 --> 00:04:27,930

the echinacea and salvia I'll be putting




138

00:04:28,129 --> 00:04:29,610

some starter fertilizer in the hole with




139

00:04:29,810 --> 00:04:32,160

them today and that'll probably be it




140

00:04:32,360 --> 00:04:34,020

for this year until I fertilize well I




141

00:04:34,220 --> 00:04:35,639

may fertilize later on in the summer or




142

00:04:35,839 --> 00:04:37,860

again next spring and for that I would




143

00:04:38,060 --> 00:04:39,689

use a fertilizer like plant tone or




144

00:04:39,889 --> 00:04:41,999

flower tone and you might notice a




145

00:04:42,199 --> 00:04:44,009

couple other things hanging out in this




146

00:04:44,209 --> 00:04:46,139

area I'm just trying some stuff out so I




147

00:04:46,339 --> 00:04:47,759

am gonna be planting a climbing rose




148

00:04:47,959 --> 00:04:50,100

called Zephyr and ruin I've got four of




149

00:04:50,300 --> 00:04:51,869

them that are gonna be trained up the




150

00:04:52,069 --> 00:04:53,520

run and kind of over the roof there are




151

00:04:53,720 --> 00:04:55,619

thornless pink rose that blooms all




152

00:04:55,819 --> 00:04:57,420

summer so we got a lot of color there




153

00:04:57,620 --> 00:04:59,249

I've got a purple fountain grass that I




154

00:04:59,449 --> 00:05:00,660

thought would be really pretty having a




155

00:05:00,860 --> 00:05:02,968

dark grassy texture right here and then




156

00:05:03,168 --> 00:05:05,129

a Miss violet butterfly bush which I'm




157

00:05:05,329 --> 00:05:06,660

probably not gonna plant today I'm just




158

00:05:06,860 --> 00:05:08,699

kind of I have it set there just to try




159

00:05:08,899 --> 00:05:10,709

it out so I just wanted to mention those




160

00:05:10,908 --> 00:05:12,149

three things cuz you will see those




161

00:05:12,348 --> 00:05:13,559

alright let's get these things in the




162

00:05:13,759 --> 00:05:14,220

ground




163

00:05:14,420 --> 00:05:37,810

[Music]




164

00:05:39,930 --> 00:05:54,709

[Music]




165

00:06:02,540 --> 00:06:12,869

166

00:06:15,839 --> 00:06:24,159

167

168

[Music]




169

00:07:04,819 --> 00:07:07,129

[Music]




170

00:07:07,329 --> 00:07:10,189

this area turned out so cute I love it I




171

00:07:10,389 --> 00:07:11,389

think this is probably one of the most




172

00:07:11,589 --> 00:07:13,309

cheerful spots I have in my garden right




173

00:07:13,509 --> 00:07:15,588

now and it's funny how one project like




174

00:07:15,788 --> 00:07:16,879

just laying out some flowers getting




175

00:07:17,079 --> 00:07:18,110

them in the ground kind of snowballs




176

00:07:18,310 --> 00:07:20,149

into running all the drip irrigation




177

00:07:20,348 --> 00:07:21,920

getting the mulch down and planting up




178

00:07:22,120 --> 00:07:24,468

my window box so I decided instead of




179

00:07:24,668 --> 00:07:26,240

putting any color in here in terms of




180

00:07:26,439 --> 00:07:28,490

blooms just to do foliage so these are




181

00:07:28,689 --> 00:07:31,040

three clipped Sprinter box woods with




182

00:07:31,240 --> 00:07:32,718

Goldilocks creeping Jenny planted




183

00:07:32,918 --> 00:07:35,149

underneath and I think the foliage




184

00:07:35,348 --> 00:07:37,129

colors contrast each other really nicely




185

00:07:37,329 --> 00:07:39,319

and I think if I would have had color in




186

00:07:39,519 --> 00:07:40,610

here and a whole bunch of color down




187

00:07:40,810 --> 00:07:41,869

here it would have been a little bit too




188

00:07:42,069 --> 00:07:43,730

much Plus that brings a little bit more




189

00:07:43,930 --> 00:07:46,160

of a formal touch to the area and this




190

00:07:46,360 --> 00:07:49,040

spot down below can just be free and




191

00:07:49,240 --> 00:07:51,410

kind of more country feel a little bit




192

00:07:51,610 --> 00:07:52,670

more abundant with blooms




193

00:07:52,870 --> 00:07:54,679

so I did end up planting the rose and




194

00:07:54,879 --> 00:07:56,149

the purple fountain grass and then I'll




195

00:07:56,348 --> 00:07:58,850

kind of just keep moving down the way to




196

00:07:59,050 --> 00:08:00,619

finish up this whole area I did figure




197

00:08:00,819 --> 00:08:02,899

out that I needed one more Indiglo girl




198

00:08:03,098 --> 00:08:04,218

salvia so that's something I'm gonna




199

00:08:04,418 --> 00:08:05,660

keep my eye out for it down at the




200

00:08:05,860 --> 00:08:07,579

garden center this season just to finish




201

00:08:07,779 --> 00:08:09,800

my little trio and then I will be




202

00:08:10,000 --> 00:08:11,360

probably incorporating that Miss violet




203

00:08:11,560 --> 00:08:12,920

butterfly bush another plant that




204

00:08:13,120 --> 00:08:15,139

attracts butterflies and then possibly a




205

00:08:15,339 --> 00:08:18,170

small ornamental very small growing




206

00:08:18,370 --> 00:08:20,449

evergreen for some evergreen interest in




207

00:08:20,649 --> 00:08:22,519

here but my whole goal is just to kind




208

00:08:22,718 --> 00:08:26,088

of keep the area colorful and not too




209

00:08:26,288 --> 00:08:27,860

big I don't want anything to really




210

00:08:28,060 --> 00:08:31,040

block the run too much so anyway that's




211

00:08:31,240 --> 00:08:33,649

it so if you guys are looking for some




212

00:08:33,849 --> 00:08:35,750

plants to attract butterflies look for




213

00:08:35,950 --> 00:08:38,599

salvia dahlias and echinacea hope you




214

00:08:38,799 --> 00:08:40,189

guys enjoyed this video and we will see




215

00:08:40,389 --> 00:08:41,629

you in the next one

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,570

hey guys how's it going today I'm




2

00:00:01,770 --> 00:00:03,579

starting a kids garden for Benjamin and




3

00:00:03,779 --> 00:00:05,469

I'm so excited I've never done a garden




4

00:00:05,669 --> 00:00:07,089

like this before I'm gonna be




5

00:00:07,290 --> 00:00:08,859

implementing a few ideas that have kind




6

00:00:09,058 --> 00:00:11,080

of done in a different form which I'll




7

00:00:11,279 --> 00:00:12,460

talk about in a second but we're in the




8

00:00:12,660 --> 00:00:14,559

flower bed right behind our gazebo so




9

00:00:14,759 --> 00:00:16,210

this is the area that used to have the




10

00:00:16,410 --> 00:00:18,010

little pond when we very first moved in




11

00:00:18,210 --> 00:00:19,989

and a Hawthorn tree which we've had both




12

00:00:20,189 --> 00:00:21,940

of those removed and I really didn't




13

00:00:22,140 --> 00:00:23,440

know what to do with this area like I




14

00:00:23,640 --> 00:00:25,089

just let it sit kind of empty for the




15

00:00:25,289 --> 00:00:28,030

last year or two and then I got to




16

00:00:28,230 --> 00:00:29,589

thinking that this would be a perfect




17

00:00:29,789 --> 00:00:30,818

spot for a kids garden because it's




18

00:00:31,018 --> 00:00:33,189

right where our dining set is out here




19

00:00:33,390 --> 00:00:34,839

right where we like to eat I can still




20

00:00:35,039 --> 00:00:38,049

see this area from the house so today




21

00:00:38,250 --> 00:00:40,448

I'm building a bean teepee out of bamboo




22

00:00:40,649 --> 00:00:42,518

poles it's not just gonna be beans




23

00:00:42,719 --> 00:00:44,709

though I'm also gonna plant some of this




24

00:00:44,909 --> 00:00:46,989

beautiful lemon appeal with umber Jie or




25

00:00:47,189 --> 00:00:49,358

a black-eyed Susan vine on it because I




26

00:00:49,558 --> 00:00:51,579

want it to both have the really neat




27

00:00:51,780 --> 00:00:53,799

flowers and also the beans and I'm doing




28

00:00:54,000 --> 00:00:56,498

yard-long beans I think that'll be




29

00:00:56,698 --> 00:00:57,669

really fun because when you're doing




30

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,799

anything kid related doing either




31

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:01,928

vegetables that get super big or really




32

00:01:02,128 --> 00:01:04,719

really tiny I think are really fun this




33

00:01:04,920 --> 00:01:06,609

is a very easy project we did something




34

00:01:06,810 --> 00:01:08,859

very similar to this up closer to the




35

00:01:09,060 --> 00:01:12,549

house last fall or the fall before that




36

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:15,129

was last fall where I took some branches




37

00:01:15,329 --> 00:01:16,659

out of the garden and created kind of




38

00:01:16,859 --> 00:01:19,329

the same thing so you can use branches




39

00:01:19,530 --> 00:01:20,829

out of your garden or you can use bamboo




40

00:01:21,030 --> 00:01:23,079

poles like I'm gonna use today the




41

00:01:23,280 --> 00:01:24,640

difference between that project and this




42

00:01:24,840 --> 00:01:26,799

one is that I'm leaving an opening so




43

00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:28,329

that it's an actual teepee that Benjamin




44

00:01:28,530 --> 00:01:30,789

can come in to so I'm gonna have the




45

00:01:30,989 --> 00:01:32,378

opening right here so that we can do a




46

00:01:32,578 --> 00:01:35,738

little walkway up to it very first thing




47

00:01:35,938 --> 00:01:37,058

I'm gonna do is kind of mark out my




48

00:01:37,259 --> 00:01:38,950

circle because I'm really bad at




49

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:41,528

eyeballing stuff like this so I've got a




50

00:01:41,728 --> 00:01:43,000

stake in the ground with a piece of




51

00:01:43,200 --> 00:01:45,549

twine tied to a stick and I'm just gonna




52

00:01:45,750 --> 00:01:48,609

use this kind of as my compass and I'm




53

00:01:48,810 --> 00:01:52,569

making a circle in the ground trying not




54

00:01:52,769 --> 00:01:54,579

to fall over I want this to be a pretty




55

00:01:54,780 --> 00:01:56,409

big focal point back here so I did get




56

00:01:56,609 --> 00:01:58,808

eight-foot long bamboo poles let me grab




57

00:01:59,009 --> 00:02:01,539

a couple here I'm not sure exactly how




58

00:02:01,739 --> 00:02:03,909

far I'm gonna space them apart maybe




59

00:02:04,109 --> 00:02:05,558

like every foot and a half or two feet




60

00:02:05,759 --> 00:02:07,509

or so I think I'm gonna measure so I can




61

00:02:07,709 --> 00:02:10,088

get this right but check that out won't




62

00:02:10,288 --> 00:02:13,510

that be so neat so I do have




63

00:02:13,710 --> 00:02:16,360

my tape measure that I can easily carry




64

00:02:16,560 --> 00:02:18,490

in my purse so I can met with things




65

00:02:18,689 --> 00:02:19,960

like benches and stuff like that at




66

00:02:20,159 --> 00:02:22,000

garden centers and I want to determine




67

00:02:22,199 --> 00:02:26,080

how wide I want to leave my opening so I




68

00:02:26,280 --> 00:02:28,120

figured out my opening at about 36




69

00:02:28,319 --> 00:02:29,740

inches and then I think I'm gonna place




70

00:02:29,939 --> 00:02:32,939

these poles about every 21 inches or so




71

00:02:33,139 --> 00:02:35,860

roughly it really doesn't matter in the




72

00:02:36,060 --> 00:02:37,150

end because they're gonna be all covered




73

00:02:37,349 --> 00:02:39,160

with vines anyway so I'm just gonna




74

00:02:39,360 --> 00:02:42,010

start making some holes I've got my




75

00:02:42,210 --> 00:02:43,630

auger right here this is what I use to




76

00:02:43,830 --> 00:02:45,400

plant bulbs and I'm just gonna make




77

00:02:45,599 --> 00:02:47,650

holes kind of at an angle to hopefully




78

00:02:47,849 --> 00:02:51,530

anchor these into the ground really well




79

00:02:56,449 --> 00:02:59,380

all right let's see how far that it goes




80

00:02:59,580 --> 00:03:02,110

down now if you're blessed with really




81

00:03:02,310 --> 00:03:04,120

nice soil and you can push your sticks




82

00:03:04,319 --> 00:03:07,450

right down in then I'm jealous I think




83

00:03:07,650 --> 00:03:08,980

that'll work so I'm just gonna do that




84

00:03:09,180 --> 00:03:13,870

all the way around all right I've got




85

00:03:14,069 --> 00:03:16,090

all the holes done if you do not have a




86

00:03:16,289 --> 00:03:17,800

bulb auger I would highly recommend that




87

00:03:18,000 --> 00:03:20,340

you get one because I find them so




88

00:03:20,539 --> 00:03:22,870

extremely useful I use them all the time




89

00:03:23,069 --> 00:03:24,700

for planting and then projects like this




90

00:03:24,900 --> 00:03:27,160

so the next thing I'm going to do is set




91

00:03:27,360 --> 00:03:28,960

all of the mamoo bamboo poles at each




92

00:03:29,159 --> 00:03:30,160

one of the holes and then I'm going to




93

00:03:30,360 --> 00:03:32,530

gather them at the top and zip tie them




94

00:03:32,729 --> 00:03:34,080

together so I've got my little ladder




95

00:03:34,280 --> 00:03:36,760

and then some just white is it Tyus




96

00:03:36,960 --> 00:03:38,469

which we will be covering in




97

00:03:38,669 --> 00:03:48,839

[Music]




98

00:03:51,569 --> 00:03:55,910

[Music]




99

00:03:56,110 --> 00:03:58,350

it came together beautifully and




100

00:03:58,550 --> 00:04:00,930

actually feels really sturdy I could




101

00:04:01,129 --> 00:04:02,789

have got 10-foot bamboo poles and I




102

00:04:02,989 --> 00:04:04,080

think I would have liked it even more




103

00:04:04,280 --> 00:04:05,368

because it would have been even bigger




104

00:04:05,568 --> 00:04:07,410

and a little bit more dramatic but to




105

00:04:07,610 --> 00:04:09,719

Benjamin I think it's gonna look massive




106

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:11,700

and that's all that really matters and




107

00:04:11,900 --> 00:04:13,410

so you can see the opening right here it




108

00:04:13,610 --> 00:04:15,600

ended up being a little bit wider than




109

00:04:15,800 --> 00:04:17,550

36 inches but I think the dimensions




110

00:04:17,750 --> 00:04:20,129

turned out kind of perfect really and




111

00:04:20,329 --> 00:04:21,780

it'll be perfect size for him in here




112

00:04:21,980 --> 00:04:23,250

especially once all the vines grow




113

00:04:23,449 --> 00:04:25,020

they'll make it a little bit more narrow




114

00:04:25,220 --> 00:04:27,240

in here so the next thing I have to do




115

00:04:27,439 --> 00:04:29,040

before I do my planting is create a




116

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:31,350

little bit of a twine grid so I'm just




117

00:04:31,550 --> 00:04:33,000

gonna tie my twine and just kind of




118

00:04:33,199 --> 00:04:35,180

start weaving it around the bamboo poles




119

00:04:35,379 --> 00:04:37,259

remembering to leave this open at least




120

00:04:37,459 --> 00:04:39,028

on the bottom I'll probably put a couple




121

00:04:39,228 --> 00:04:41,160

of pieces of twine up top here so I can




122

00:04:41,360 --> 00:04:43,050

train some of the vines this way but




123

00:04:43,250 --> 00:04:44,610

that way all of the vining plants have




124

00:04:44,810 --> 00:04:47,340

something to hang on to okay okay okay




125

00:04:47,540 --> 00:04:51,050

you're done you're done buddy sorry




126

00:04:51,250 --> 00:04:56,860

[Music]




127

00:05:00,410 --> 00:05:03,459

[Music]




128

00:05:05,800 --> 00:05:07,730

I love how it turned out I think it




129

00:05:07,930 --> 00:05:10,069

looks so cute and the addition of the




130

00:05:10,269 --> 00:05:11,838

twine not only will help our vining




131

00:05:12,038 --> 00:05:14,270

plant scroll up to the top but they also




132

00:05:14,470 --> 00:05:16,429

I think add to a little bit of stability




133

00:05:16,629 --> 00:05:18,170

too and kind of keep everything together




134

00:05:18,370 --> 00:05:20,838

so I just started one string like in the




135

00:05:21,038 --> 00:05:23,240

front here and then took it around all




136

00:05:23,439 --> 00:05:24,800

the way to the other side so it's only




137

00:05:25,000 --> 00:05:27,009

tied off on either one of the opening




138

00:05:27,209 --> 00:05:29,179

poles here and then it's just wrapped




139

00:05:29,379 --> 00:05:31,218

around the other ones and then when I




140

00:05:31,418 --> 00:05:32,809

got to the very end I tied a little X




141

00:05:33,009 --> 00:05:35,389

right here just to kind of help create




142

00:05:35,589 --> 00:05:38,660

my little I kind of want like a domed




143

00:05:38,860 --> 00:05:41,838

oval opening so then I have my lemon




144

00:05:42,038 --> 00:05:44,629

appeal than Burgi s based on every other




145

00:05:44,829 --> 00:05:46,790

Pole here some planting five of them all




146

00:05:46,990 --> 00:05:48,528

together I'll add a little bit of




147

00:05:48,728 --> 00:05:50,869

slow-release plant food to the hole when




148

00:05:51,069 --> 00:05:53,088

I plant them and then in between I'll be




149

00:05:53,288 --> 00:05:56,459

planting my bean seeds




150

00:05:57,329 --> 00:06:00,449

[Music]




151

00:06:05,449 --> 00:06:08,800

[Music]




152

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:19,459

[Music]




153

[Music]




154

00:06:31,889 --> 00:06:34,129

so it's all done and I think it looks




155

00:06:34,329 --> 00:06:35,750

really cute I know the plants don't look




156

00:06:35,949 --> 00:06:36,800

spectacular




157

00:06:37,000 --> 00:06:38,870

right away I mean the beans are not even




158

00:06:39,069 --> 00:06:40,850

visible yet but you guys are gonna be




159

00:06:41,050 --> 00:06:42,500

amazed if you've never grown this




160

00:06:42,699 --> 00:06:45,050

particular type of some bersia I grew




161

00:06:45,250 --> 00:06:47,210

the tangerine slice if he'll last year




162

00:06:47,410 --> 00:06:48,379

and this one like I said is a lemon




163

00:06:48,579 --> 00:06:50,990

appeal they grow so fast like you guys




164

00:06:51,189 --> 00:06:52,879

are gonna see this when we do progress




165

00:06:53,079 --> 00:06:54,829

updates here in the next even few weeks




166

00:06:55,029 --> 00:06:57,170

and it'll already have covered quite a




167

00:06:57,370 --> 00:06:59,270

bit of the TP I mean I think five around




168

00:06:59,470 --> 00:07:01,639

this is probably overkill to be honest




169

00:07:01,839 --> 00:07:04,189

especially since I put beans in there as




170

00:07:04,389 --> 00:07:05,840

well but I really want this area to be




171

00:07:06,040 --> 00:07:07,879

full of color and just really fun




172

00:07:08,079 --> 00:07:10,790

looking I am going to find some sort of




173

00:07:10,990 --> 00:07:12,710

outdoor rug to put on the interior here




174

00:07:12,910 --> 00:07:14,750

like a little round one we get hardly




175

00:07:14,949 --> 00:07:16,610

any rain here so it won't get ruined




176

00:07:16,810 --> 00:07:18,980

very quickly anyway and then as far as




177

00:07:19,180 --> 00:07:21,079

the materials to construct something




178

00:07:21,279 --> 00:07:24,050

like this it's super easy to find any




179

00:07:24,250 --> 00:07:26,329

kind of stake you could use wood stakes




180

00:07:26,529 --> 00:07:28,759

you could use branches off of a tree if




181

00:07:28,959 --> 00:07:30,680

you wanted to these bamboo poles I got




182

00:07:30,879 --> 00:07:32,600

down at the garden center and they last




183

00:07:32,800 --> 00:07:35,569

forever so I feel like every time I have




184

00:07:35,769 --> 00:07:37,280

a project to use bamboo poles it's just




185

00:07:37,480 --> 00:07:38,780

a really good investment because I can




186

00:07:38,980 --> 00:07:40,550

use these like I could leave this teepee




187

00:07:40,750 --> 00:07:42,110

out probably even during the winter and




188

00:07:42,310 --> 00:07:43,689

we could put Christmas lights on it even




189

00:07:43,889 --> 00:07:46,280

so I just feel like this is a really




190

00:07:46,480 --> 00:07:47,750

good way to go and they're very very




191

00:07:47,949 --> 00:07:50,120

strong and sturdy so anyway that's it




192

00:07:50,319 --> 00:07:52,189

for this video and like I said we are




193

00:07:52,389 --> 00:07:54,020

gonna be doing a lot more kid focused




194

00:07:54,220 --> 00:07:55,910

gardening videos back in this area in




195

00:07:56,110 --> 00:07:57,290

fact we might be removing a bunch of




196

00:07:57,490 --> 00:07:59,540

these plants and redoing drip mulching




197

00:07:59,740 --> 00:08:01,340

making it look really nice but hopefully




198

00:08:01,540 --> 00:08:03,710

and really really fun and colorful like




199

00:08:03,910 --> 00:08:04,939

I'm even thinking about incorporating




200

00:08:05,139 --> 00:08:07,730

water in here somehow and actually




201

00:08:07,930 --> 00:08:09,500

Benjamin right now I think he'll enjoy




202

00:08:09,699 --> 00:08:11,629

this once it's like a little bit more of




203

00:08:11,829 --> 00:08:15,020

a of a hideaway place he's with Grandma




204

00:08:15,220 --> 00:08:16,879

right now so we could do the project and




205

00:08:17,079 --> 00:08:18,829

get this done but I think we'll




206

00:08:19,029 --> 00:08:20,210

incorporate some things that he will




207

00:08:20,410 --> 00:08:22,430

really really enjoy so anyway thank you




208

00:08:22,629 --> 00:08:23,750

guys so much for watching this video and




209

00:08:23,949 --> 00:08:25,370

we will see you in the next one

1

00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,570

hey guys how's it going today I'm




2

00:00:01,770 --> 00:00:03,579

starting a kids garden for Benjamin and




3

00:00:03,779 --> 00:00:05,469

I'm so excited I've never done a garden




4

00:00:05,669 --> 00:00:07,089

like this before I'm gonna be




5

00:00:07,290 --> 00:00:08,859

implementing a few ideas that have kind




6

00:00:09,058 --> 00:00:11,080

of done in a different form which I'll




7

00:00:11,279 --> 00:00:12,460

talk about in a second but we're in the




8

00:00:12,660 --> 00:00:14,559

flower bed right behind our gazebo so




9

00:00:14,759 --> 00:00:16,210

this is the area that used to have the




10

00:00:16,410 --> 00:00:18,010

little pond when we very first moved in




11

00:00:18,210 --> 00:00:19,989

and a Hawthorn tree which we've had both




12

00:00:20,189 --> 00:00:21,940

of those removed and I really didn't




13

00:00:22,140 --> 00:00:23,440

know what to do with this area like I




14

00:00:23,640 --> 00:00:25,089

just let it sit kind of empty for the




15

00:00:25,289 --> 00:00:28,030

last year or two and then I got to




16

00:00:28,230 --> 00:00:29,589

thinking that this would be a perfect




17

00:00:29,789 --> 00:00:30,818

spot for a kids garden because it's




18

00:00:31,018 --> 00:00:33,189

right where our dining set is out here




19

00:00:33,390 --> 00:00:34,839

right where we like to eat I can still




20

00:00:35,039 --> 00:00:38,049

see this area from the house so today




21

00:00:38,250 --> 00:00:40,448

I'm building a bean teepee out of bamboo




22

00:00:40,649 --> 00:00:42,518

poles it's not just gonna be beans




23

00:00:42,719 --> 00:00:44,709

though I'm also gonna plant some of this




24

00:00:44,909 --> 00:00:46,989

beautiful lemon appeal with umber Jie or




25

00:00:47,189 --> 00:00:49,358

a black-eyed Susan vine on it because I




26

00:00:49,558 --> 00:00:51,579

want it to both have the really neat




27

00:00:51,780 --> 00:00:53,799

flowers and also the beans and I'm doing




28

00:00:54,000 --> 00:00:56,498

yard-long beans I think that'll be




29

00:00:56,698 --> 00:00:57,669

really fun because when you're doing




30

00:00:57,869 --> 00:00:59,799

anything kid related doing either




31

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:01,928

vegetables that get super big or really




32

00:01:02,128 --> 00:01:04,719

really tiny I think are really fun this




33

00:01:04,920 --> 00:01:06,609

is a very easy project we did something




34

00:01:06,810 --> 00:01:08,859

very similar to this up closer to the




35

00:01:09,060 --> 00:01:12,549

house last fall or the fall before that




36

00:01:12,750 --> 00:01:15,129

was last fall where I took some branches




37

00:01:15,329 --> 00:01:16,659

out of the garden and created kind of




38

00:01:16,859 --> 00:01:19,329

the same thing so you can use branches




39

00:01:19,530 --> 00:01:20,829

out of your garden or you can use bamboo




40

00:01:21,030 --> 00:01:23,079

poles like I'm gonna use today the




41

00:01:23,280 --> 00:01:24,640

difference between that project and this




42

00:01:24,840 --> 00:01:26,799

one is that I'm leaving an opening so




43

00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:28,329

that it's an actual teepee that Benjamin




44

00:01:28,530 --> 00:01:30,789

can come in to so I'm gonna have the




45

00:01:30,989 --> 00:01:32,378

opening right here so that we can do a




46

00:01:32,578 --> 00:01:35,738

little walkway up to it very first thing




47

00:01:35,938 --> 00:01:37,058

I'm gonna do is kind of mark out my




48

00:01:37,259 --> 00:01:38,950

circle because I'm really bad at




49

00:01:39,150 --> 00:01:41,528

eyeballing stuff like this so I've got a




50

00:01:41,728 --> 00:01:43,000

stake in the ground with a piece of




51

00:01:43,200 --> 00:01:45,549

twine tied to a stick and I'm just gonna




52

00:01:45,750 --> 00:01:48,609

use this kind of as my compass and I'm




53

00:01:48,810 --> 00:01:52,569

making a circle in the ground trying not




54

00:01:52,769 --> 00:01:54,579

to fall over I want this to be a pretty




55

00:01:54,780 --> 00:01:56,409

big focal point back here so I did get




56

00:01:56,609 --> 00:01:58,808

eight-foot long bamboo poles let me grab




57

00:01:59,009 --> 00:02:01,539

a couple here I'm not sure exactly how




58

00:02:01,739 --> 00:02:03,909

far I'm gonna space them apart maybe




59

00:02:04,109 --> 00:02:05,558

like every foot and a half or two feet




60

00:02:05,759 --> 00:02:07,509

or so I think I'm gonna measure so I can




61

00:02:07,709 --> 00:02:10,088

get this right but check that out won't




62

00:02:10,288 --> 00:02:13,510

that be so neat so I do have




63

00:02:13,710 --> 00:02:16,360

my tape measure that I can easily carry




64

00:02:16,560 --> 00:02:18,490

in my purse so I can met with things




65

00:02:18,689 --> 00:02:19,960

like benches and stuff like that at




66

00:02:20,159 --> 00:02:22,000

garden centers and I want to determine




67

00:02:22,199 --> 00:02:26,080

how wide I want to leave my opening so I




68

00:02:26,280 --> 00:02:28,120

figured out my opening at about 36




69

00:02:28,319 --> 00:02:29,740

inches and then I think I'm gonna place




70

00:02:29,939 --> 00:02:32,939

these poles about every 21 inches or so




71

00:02:33,139 --> 00:02:35,860

roughly it really doesn't matter in the




72

00:02:36,060 --> 00:02:37,150

end because they're gonna be all covered




73

00:02:37,349 --> 00:02:39,160

with vines anyway so I'm just gonna




74

00:02:39,360 --> 00:02:42,010

start making some holes I've got my




75

00:02:42,210 --> 00:02:43,630

auger right here this is what I use to




76

00:02:43,830 --> 00:02:45,400

plant bulbs and I'm just gonna make




77

00:02:45,599 --> 00:02:47,650

holes kind of at an angle to hopefully




78

00:02:47,849 --> 00:02:51,530

anchor these into the ground really well




79

00:02:56,449 --> 00:02:59,380

all right let's see how far that it goes




80

00:02:59,580 --> 00:03:02,110

down now if you're blessed with really




81

00:03:02,310 --> 00:03:04,120

nice soil and you can push your sticks




82

00:03:04,319 --> 00:03:07,450

right down in then I'm jealous I think




83

00:03:07,650 --> 00:03:08,980

that'll work so I'm just gonna do that




84

00:03:09,180 --> 00:03:13,870

all the way around all right I've got




85

00:03:14,069 --> 00:03:16,090

all the holes done if you do not have a




86

00:03:16,289 --> 00:03:17,800

bulb auger I would highly recommend that




87

00:03:18,000 --> 00:03:20,340

you get one because I find them so




88

00:03:20,539 --> 00:03:22,870

extremely useful I use them all the time




89

00:03:23,069 --> 00:03:24,700

for planting and then projects like this




90

00:03:24,900 --> 00:03:27,160

so the next thing I'm going to do is set




91

00:03:27,360 --> 00:03:28,960

all of the mamoo bamboo poles at each




92

00:03:29,159 --> 00:03:30,160

one of the holes and then I'm going to




93

00:03:30,360 --> 00:03:32,530

gather them at the top and zip tie them




94

00:03:32,729 --> 00:03:34,080

together so I've got my little ladder




95

00:03:34,280 --> 00:03:36,760

and then some just white is it Tyus




96

00:03:36,960 --> 00:03:38,469

which we will be covering in




97

00:03:38,669 --> 00:03:48,839

[Music]




98

00:03:51,569 --> 00:03:55,910

[Music]




99

00:03:56,110 --> 00:03:58,350

it came together beautifully and




100

00:03:58,550 --> 00:04:00,930

actually feels really sturdy I could




101

00:04:01,129 --> 00:04:02,789

have got 10-foot bamboo poles and I




102

00:04:02,989 --> 00:04:04,080

think I would have liked it even more




103

00:04:04,280 --> 00:04:05,368

because it would have been even bigger




104

00:04:05,568 --> 00:04:07,410

and a little bit more dramatic but to




105

00:04:07,610 --> 00:04:09,719

Benjamin I think it's gonna look massive




106

00:04:09,919 --> 00:04:11,700

and that's all that really matters and




107

00:04:11,900 --> 00:04:13,410

so you can see the opening right here it




108

00:04:13,610 --> 00:04:15,600

ended up being a little bit wider than




109

00:04:15,800 --> 00:04:17,550

36 inches but I think the dimensions




110

00:04:17,750 --> 00:04:20,129

turned out kind of perfect really and




111

00:04:20,329 --> 00:04:21,780

it'll be perfect size for him in here




112

00:04:21,980 --> 00:04:23,250

especially once all the vines grow




113

00:04:23,449 --> 00:04:25,020

they'll make it a little bit more narrow




114

00:04:25,220 --> 00:04:27,240

in here so the next thing I have to do




115

00:04:27,439 --> 00:04:29,040

before I do my planting is create a




116

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:31,350

little bit of a twine grid so I'm just




117

00:04:31,550 --> 00:04:33,000

gonna tie my twine and just kind of




118

00:04:33,199 --> 00:04:35,180

start weaving it around the bamboo poles




119

00:04:35,379 --> 00:04:37,259

remembering to leave this open at least




120

00:04:37,459 --> 00:04:39,028

on the bottom I'll probably put a couple




121

00:04:39,228 --> 00:04:41,160

of pieces of twine up top here so I can




122

00:04:41,360 --> 00:04:43,050

train some of the vines this way but




123

00:04:43,250 --> 00:04:44,610

that way all of the vining plants have




124

00:04:44,810 --> 00:04:47,340

something to hang on to okay okay okay




125

00:04:47,540 --> 00:04:51,050

you're done you're done buddy sorry




126

00:04:51,250 --> 00:04:56,860

[Music]




127

00:05:00,410 --> 00:05:03,459

[Music]




128

00:05:05,800 --> 00:05:07,730

I love how it turned out I think it




129

00:05:07,930 --> 00:05:10,069

looks so cute and the addition of the




130

00:05:10,269 --> 00:05:11,838

twine not only will help our vining




131

00:05:12,038 --> 00:05:14,270

plant scroll up to the top but they also




132

00:05:14,470 --> 00:05:16,429

I think add to a little bit of stability




133

00:05:16,629 --> 00:05:18,170

too and kind of keep everything together




134

00:05:18,370 --> 00:05:20,838

so I just started one string like in the




135

00:05:21,038 --> 00:05:23,240

front here and then took it around all




136

00:05:23,439 --> 00:05:24,800

the way to the other side so it's only




137

00:05:25,000 --> 00:05:27,009

tied off on either one of the opening




138

00:05:27,209 --> 00:05:29,179

poles here and then it's just wrapped




139

00:05:29,379 --> 00:05:31,218

around the other ones and then when I




140

00:05:31,418 --> 00:05:32,809

got to the very end I tied a little X




141

00:05:33,009 --> 00:05:35,389

right here just to kind of help create




142

00:05:35,589 --> 00:05:38,660

my little I kind of want like a domed




143

00:05:38,860 --> 00:05:41,838

oval opening so then I have my lemon




144

00:05:42,038 --> 00:05:44,629

appeal than Burgi s based on every other




145

00:05:44,829 --> 00:05:46,790

Pole here some planting five of them all




146

00:05:46,990 --> 00:05:48,528

together I'll add a little bit of




147

00:05:48,728 --> 00:05:50,869

slow-release plant food to the hole when




148

00:05:51,069 --> 00:05:53,088

I plant them and then in between I'll be




149

00:05:53,288 --> 00:05:56,459

planting my bean seeds




150

00:05:57,329 --> 00:06:00,449

[Music]




151

00:06:05,449 --> 00:06:08,800

[Music]




152

00:06:13,149 --> 00:06:19,459

[Music]




153

00:06:21,589 --> 00:06:31,689

[Music]




154

00:06:31,889 --> 00:06:34,129

so it's all done and I think it looks




155

00:06:34,329 --> 00:06:35,750

really cute I know the plants don't look




156

00:06:35,949 --> 00:06:36,800

spectacular




157

00:06:37,000 --> 00:06:38,870

right away I mean the beans are not even




158

00:06:39,069 --> 00:06:40,850

visible yet but you guys are gonna be




159

00:06:41,050 --> 00:06:42,500

amazed if you've never grown this




160

00:06:42,699 --> 00:06:45,050

particular type of some bersia I grew




161

00:06:45,250 --> 00:06:47,210

the tangerine slice if he'll last year




162

00:06:47,410 --> 00:06:48,379

and this one like I said is a lemon




163

00:06:48,579 --> 00:06:50,990

appeal they grow so fast like you guys




164

00:06:51,189 --> 00:06:52,879

are gonna see this when we do progress




165

00:06:53,079 --> 00:06:54,829

updates here in the next even few weeks




166

00:06:55,029 --> 00:06:57,170

and it'll already have covered quite a




167

00:06:57,370 --> 00:06:59,270

bit of the TP I mean I think five around




168

00:06:59,470 --> 00:07:01,639

this is probably overkill to be honest




169

00:07:01,839 --> 00:07:04,189

especially since I put beans in there as




170

00:07:04,389 --> 00:07:05,840

well but I really want this area to be




171

00:07:06,040 --> 00:07:07,879

full of color and just really fun




172

00:07:08,079 --> 00:07:10,790

looking I am going to find some sort of




173

00:07:10,990 --> 00:07:12,710

outdoor rug to put on the interior here




174

00:07:12,910 --> 00:07:14,750

like a little round one we get hardly




175

00:07:14,949 --> 00:07:16,610

any rain here so it won't get ruined




176

00:07:16,810 --> 00:07:18,980

very quickly anyway and then as far as




177

00:07:19,180 --> 00:07:21,079

the materials to construct something




178

00:07:21,279 --> 00:07:24,050

like this it's super easy to find any




179

00:07:24,250 --> 00:07:26,329

kind of stake you could use wood stakes




180

00:07:26,529 --> 00:07:28,759

you could use branches off of a tree if




181

00:07:28,959 --> 00:07:30,680

you wanted to these bamboo poles I got




182

00:07:30,879 --> 00:07:32,600

down at the garden center and they last




183

00:07:32,800 --> 00:07:35,569

forever so I feel like every time I have




184

00:07:35,769 --> 00:07:37,280

a project to use bamboo poles it's just




185

00:07:37,480 --> 00:07:38,780

a really good investment because I can




186

00:07:38,980 --> 00:07:40,550

use these like I could leave this teepee




187

00:07:40,750 --> 00:07:42,110

out probably even during the winter and




188

00:07:42,310 --> 00:07:43,689

we could put Christmas lights on it even




189

00:07:43,889 --> 00:07:46,280

so I just feel like this is a really




190

00:07:46,480 --> 00:07:47,750

good way to go and they're very very




191

00:07:47,949 --> 00:07:50,120

strong and sturdy so anyway that's it




192

00:07:50,319 --> 00:07:52,189

for this video and like I said we are




193

00:07:52,389 --> 00:07:54,020

gonna be doing a lot more kid focused




194

00:07:54,220 --> 00:07:55,910

gardening videos back in this area in




195

00:07:56,110 --> 00:07:57,290

fact we might be removing a bunch of




196

00:07:57,490 --> 00:07:59,540

these plants and redoing drip mulching




197

00:07:59,740 --> 00:08:01,340

making it look really nice but hopefully




198

00:08:01,540 --> 00:08:03,710

and really really fun and colorful like




199

00:08:03,910 --> 00:08:04,939

I'm even thinking about incorporating




200

00:08:05,139 --> 00:08:07,730

water in here somehow and actually




201

00:08:07,930 --> 00:08:09,500

Benjamin right now I think he'll enjoy




202

00:08:09,699 --> 00:08:11,629

this once it's like a little bit more of




203

00:08:11,829 --> 00:08:15,020

a of a hideaway place he's with Grandma




204

00:08:15,220 --> 00:08:16,879

right now so we could do the project and




205

00:08:17,079 --> 00:08:18,829

get this done but I think we'll




206

00:08:19,029 --> 00:08:20,210

incorporate some things that he will




207

00:08:20,410 --> 00:08:22,430

really really enjoy so anyway thank you




208

00:08:22,629 --> 00:08:23,750

209

00:08:23,949 --> 00:08:25,370
