    If you lay the gardening fabric down over the grass before adding soil.. You’d save a ton of work.

    Great video! Just started our garden here in Virginia…a potager…combination of veggies, herbs, flowers. I’m trying to plant also a plant that originates from a country that I’ve travelled to in the past that I can get here in the US …for example—I’ve traveled to South Korea in the past and so I just planted a Camellia Sinensis that originates from Korea that I ordered from North Carolina—going to make my own tea! Looking forward to seeing more of your gardening videos!

  3. Leah Davis on July 29, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Love this! I’m starting my garden today for the first time! I cannot wait to see how my little plants grow. Thanks for the inspiration as always

  4. Дуриндер on July 29, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    I used to have a big garden since my childhood but now its all cemented due to home renovation.

  5. Ník on July 29, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    I’m stuck at home in a small coastal, and we just started slowly reopening. Farming/gardening is a huge part of the economy here, and I just started planting. Great vid!

  6. Ethan King on July 29, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    I love this video!! Specially at the start where you talk about the lessons gardening teaches you. It’s important to look at the whole process behind taking care of something important to you. Can’t wait for more videos like this!!

  10. GM T on July 29, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Oh kewl! I had had the side yard cleared so I can start a veggie garden! I already have planters with kale, spinach and swiss chard, but hope to expand. Look forward to seeing more!

    nicely done, cannot wait to see your bounty

  14. Tracey Becker on July 29, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    I’m always amazed by areas that do not have to surround their gardens with chicken fencing to keep the rabbits out. There is no way my garden could grow if I didn’t fence it in to protect it!

  15. Keren Elizondo on July 29, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    This is my favorite video on how to start a vegetable garden. Thank you for all the tips and the life reflections!!

  16. Mike on July 29, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    How do you manage a garden while traveling often?

  17. Afrodite Tsantekidis on July 29, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Love love love!!! Thanks again Alex for some wonderful content and tips. Only started a little veggie patch yesterday with some herbs and this has inspired me to venture into growing vegetables. Will let you know how it goes. Stay safe ❤️

  18. Timi Onibon on July 29, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Hi, is the treated wood used for the raised bed safe for plants especially vegetables, any chance of contamination from the chemicals used to treat the wood?

  19. REACH Farm on July 29, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Happiness family with beautiful vegetable garden I like your tv

  20. Valerie Velarde on July 29, 2021 at 9:11 pm

  23. Daniel Ricci on July 29, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Not a fan. More about subscribing than gardening

  24. Josh Rieger on July 29, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Getting a house soon, and this is one of the first things on the to-do list! Great video and the garden beds give a great aesthetic pleasure.

  25. Nathan G on July 29, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    6 min of intro, come on man

  26. Neil L on July 29, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Successful Gardening and dog ownership seem like a good preliminary responsibility tests before having a kid because it teaches you many applicable lessons.

  27. Vita Maria DeBellis on July 29, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Loved this video! Do u ever start with seeds?? Just planted Zucchini, cucumber, and bell peppers, in addition to what I already have growing which is kale, Marzano tomatoes, parsley, Italian parsley, basil from seeds, mint, tarragon, rosemary, thyme, chives, butter lettuce. Just waiting for the seas to start popping up

  28. digitatissue on July 29, 2021 at 9:22 pm

  29. xiomana xoxoxo on July 29, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    she is gorgeous without a stitch of makeup can’t imagine her with gloss and lashes lord have mercy!

  30. Aisle or Window on July 29, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Love this as much as your travel content! Living in a townhome on the East Coast doesn’t give us as much space or quite as long of a growing season, but we’re doing square foot gardening, container planting, and we’ve got a great little English-Style butterfly garden in what passes for our "yard". Keep it up Alex and Carrie!

  31. Summer Incairns on July 29, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Pls make more gardening videos!! I rlly enjoy them! I’m trying to start my own and ur videos and tips are rly helping!

  33. ItsSjay on July 29, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Omg Alex and Carrie, my 2 favourite things, travel and gardening! Focusing on consuming less and growing more! Love it.

  34. Star Gazer on July 29, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    You two are the cutest! Wishing you the best!!!! You can use weed cloth on the bottom of each box.

  35. Paxton Reed on July 29, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Loved this video! Can’t wait to see how y’all garden together in New Zealand! 🙂

  36. Anne Freire on July 29, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Our chickens love eating all those weird bugs. Love seeing your garden shots!

  37. Egome on July 29, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    The chemicals in that pressure treated wood will get into the soil and eventually into the root system of your plants. It is longer lasting but you should consider replacing it with cedar or something untreated

  38. Don't Trade Years on July 29, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    You should never use pressure treated stained wood for food garden beds. I wouldn’t use miracle grow soil either. There are so many organic soils out there.

  39. Lannie Armstrong on July 29, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    I love how you explained gardening in words.

  40. Bajlandia on July 29, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    The garden near the house is a good idea and the vegetables and fruits from it is a great thing, besides a work in the garden is a fine and healthy activity. I love your garden guys !

  41. juan rivera on July 29, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Compost is very good fertilizer.
