Curtis, any suggestions for small farmers here in India where the weather is dry most of the time.
what advice can you give to a beginner farmer and which crop do you harvest the most and which crop gives you the most profit.
Please do stuff like this.
For my area of texas I would do better I think in tx winter mth on Lettuce.an
It gets way to hot here in the summers.
You seem to look for the deals. What are somethings that work for you that are expensive? Where do you get your seeds from and your black paper?
How many type of crops you can plant and harvest over the year
Do you have any videos that cover root zone irrigation? I've wondered if you can bury a soaker hose in the root zone to reduce water consumption and keep leaves from getting scorched
look past the music, hear the experience and valuable brilliant info on offer, only been viewing 5 hours after I urban farmer popped up on my you tube, amazing is an understatement.
Hey Curtis wondering if you could make some videos that go over how to sell crops and what you have found, works?Thanks Nathan
I have one question regarding tilling the ground every crop. Have you tried not tilling the land when replanting and instead inoculate with enzymes and microbes to have them eat old roots and convert it to food. If you have tried this method are there any pros/cons? Any info would be greatly appreciated. keep up the great work!
Hi curtis, first of all i love what you are doing and i am really enjoying watching your video´s.
I am getting a bit stuck on understanding your high and bi rotations in relation to a thing i have learned before being "wait times and good succesions"
The book i have "dutch and scientific" divide most of the crops in 6 groups with all of them having their own wait times in years.
So below the 6 groups with behind it the wait times in years before they can return to the same piece of land.
Beans 6, roots 6, potato 4, cabbage 6, leaf 3, fruit-vegetables 4.
Also as an extra to wait times they mention good/bad direct succesion, so for example they mention that if the previous crop was a root crop
it would be a bad idea to have a leaf crop come on that piece of land after.
If i would follow this book it would be impossible for me to have multiple crops on the same bed in the same year.
Clearly what you are doing is working for you!! Whats your idea on wait times and good/bad succesions. And how do you incorporate that in your entire croprotation plan?
Many thanks and keep up the good work,
Why plant the red leaf stuff on one side?
Great help but that noise you used for music does not fit this subject, it was seriously irritating..., no music or anything needed as we are only interested in how you do it and the end results, Thanks!
hey Carrie I hadn't gotten a response. so I haven't checked this feed in awhile
Hi Curtis. I have an acre, so don't need to rotate the beds so often as I don't need to be as efficient as yourself with space. I'm just learning slowly how to grow things. So, if I don't need to rotate and want to use the no till method with a biodegradable mulch, would you say that I could still make a decent profit, possibly with less work as I would just be laying down mulch instead of tilling several times a season? How would this fit into your method if you had time and space to mulch and not till?
How do you decide how much fertility is inthe soil immediately after harvesting? Why wait Fewdays before planting?
Is one week enough time to stale seed bed the bed you crop out? And do you use that technique for every crop? Thanks!
Do you use rain or stored water when you wash the produce or tap?
How much time do you spend on selling the crops. What market do you mostly sell to (restaurant, farmers market ...etc)?
