    Ordering seeds from those companies and individuals may be hard right now but my Home Depot Seed section was 'packed' today. (Houston) So I guess the where, when, who, what & how of it determines if gardening supplies are hard to come by right now.

    We bought ours in January. Check out Retired @40 and John in Bibs on YT. We *LOVE* ours for healthy snacks and keeping the garden harvest from going bad. I had a phenomenal fall/winter crop and I have run so much broccoli and cauliflower through it, in addition to organic fruit. Running my first batch of cheeses now 😊

    Misleading video. Implying his local condition reflects the whole country. It does not. Online seed companies are hiring because the trend is more online shopping over brick and mortar especially in the pandemic. Our seed orders came through online no problem. And we have traveled to seed stores to purchase the old standards and have had no issue whatsoever. All stocked up like normal. And that applies to all garden supplies as well as seeds. We have not seen anyone 'running out'. no sub, -10

    People are figuring it out. Going nack to our roots of growing there own food. That is good. I finally had space to start mine. I have so much growing right now. Just put netting over some of it. I will have to redo lettuce and spinach I just didn't do well. I kept having the squirrels get to a lot of it I'm just going to restart it and cover it with some netting this time right after I put them in the ground. All my arms are doing really well and I even have some garlic. It's my first time doing a garden this big because my mom always took my space in my old house I moved to Florida and started my own bigger Garden. Once I buy some land in the next year-and-a-half I will make a bigger Garden as big as this backyard that I'm living in right now I'll definitely need some more tools. Right now I'm just use my kids lol. I did the best I could with the little money I had but I think for my second Garden ever, under semi rest job it's starting to look okay out there. I still got a lot to learn so I'm just learning as I go.

    A way to help with moles is to put used kitty litter in the soil. The moles will smell the urine pheromones and think a cat is near they will leave the garden alone. I did have a problem with moles until I put it on my lawn and the moles left my yard and went next door.

    Ohhh, the freeze dryer is a dream! More than I can afford right now but for sure on my wishlist! I say freeze dry beets and make a powder for your smoothies. They probably don't taste as "dirty" as fresh. My girlfriend has one and skittles are fun! I'd like to do eggs, butter, herbs and fruits. Yogurt dolops and ice cream are yummy! Of course garden harvest would be fun too.

    I read a blog where they freeze dry a lot with the harvest freezer and they always comment on how freeze dried fruit becomes like candy. I inquired about buying one but they are very expensive and run for a long time. I have solar panels and I feel it would use up all my stored energy. Also you have to be able to buy the produce at a really good price or grow it .

    JudithB Freeze drying stuff seems to take up a lot less storage space, so I would do it. Dutch did a video on freeze drying meats early this month. I bought a lot of seeds last fall, and then bags of manure and Miracle Grow were weight in the back of my truck all winter! LOL I am getting my beds ready to plant in a month, so the bags have been spread and I started tilling today. 50 strawberry plants got to be planted asap. My toms came thru the bad cold in an unheated greenhouse I built, now watching for peppers. It will be after mid April before they can be planted out. I have lettuce, kale, chard, and spinach in the hoop bed and onions in the other hoop bed. Slowly getting ready!!! LOL

    Maybe start checking into dehydrating and storing vegetables that way and saving seeds from this year's vegetables for next year's garden. This used to be the way it was always done. Our forefathers didn't have seed catalogs or garden centers to go to to get seeds, they saved them from the previous year.

    I have a freeze dryer. I also live within 5 miles from Harvest Right and I love the employees. Everyone seems to have to go through the candy and junk food phase before they get into good for you food. Prices are going up...fast. Put some soups aside so you are able to feed the fam.

    So many people are encouraged to grow more of their own food because of homestead channels such as yours. And with the climate changes, not to mention everything else that’s going on in the world, more people are becoming more self reliant. I ordered my soil blocker last year. Thank you for recommendation. You all teach by example. Thank you. Ps: I was wondering if you had thought about adding a heat source to the high tunnel for those cold and freezing temperatures? I saw someone add about three strings of lights to add some heat throughout their greenhouse.

    Now I'll be the first to admit, I've never grown kale, but what you called kale in the greenhouse looked exactly like the collards that I grow 5 rows of every year during the fall/winter season here in Central Florida. Since I process it all by canning, trust me when I say I do have an intimate relationship with that leaf.
