Things are growing great, except for your hair. WTF bro. John's rockin those bangs.
without a juicer, I just broil them roots, leaves and flowers with a few slice of ginger and drink the water - it helps with my cold and during flu seasons.
Gobi Grey
I just love shoving my hand in the dirt and getting sliced by broken glass. Makes me wonder what the heck the previous owners had in the yard! I find some every year.
Steve Finch

The flower is awesome too not just the greens and the roots boiled down into a tea is amazing for the liver

These dandelion are blue, purple due to the temperature dropped below 50* degree"s as the Potassium is then locked up in the soil, . as a Marijuana grower will tell you when the soil temperature drops below 50* degrees, . the potassium is locked up in the soil, not accessible to the roots. All of his garden has been too cold, thus it is why all are purple.
Mark Spain
John, I watch the news and then I watch your channel. I need something to let me know I'm not insane. I love ya like a brother, thanks for what you do.
little johnyjewel
you should get a dandilion hand tool they work great for getting the whole root.
Hey man, good video as always! I think you should do a video on more exotic fruits like palm fruits, blue flax lilies, fruiting cactus/succulents, corydline fruits, blue or red/pink bananas, pepino, dwarf fruit trees, fruiting bromeliads (pineapples), gingers, rose apples, coloured veggies (silverbeet, rhubarb, chard, purple potatoes), red/pink finger limes, glass gem corn, hybrid fruits, pandanus fruits (hala tree, etc), y star summer squash..
Chopped, dried and roasted dandelion, chicory and burdock root makes a tasty beverage similar to a coffee... I also put this into my homemade herbal bitters to give liver support and give the concoction a deep, brown color similar to brandy.

Hi John, I just recently discovered your videos. I was looking for a video on how to make your own garden and how your videos. Your videos are VERY helpful. AWESOME! Thank You!!!
John is so funny! "SEXY Carrots!" Lmao!
The Plant-Based Homestead
I really liked this video John. I also have to say that my husband was watching The Vegan Zombie from our local area of Syracuse, NY and it made my night because he found you at the Expo and you said hello! If we ever get to your area, the first person I'd like to meet is you John. You started my adventure to a plant-based lifestyle just by helping us grow more ourselves. We keep chickens for permaculture and my daughter sells all the eggs for her education. I came across the first person to tell me I should do what most farmers do once the older girls stopped laying...process them. MY chickens, MY rules! They are there to till the garden soil which all of the older girls do well. They have treated us well and made us laugh, so we in turn keep them happy and healthy no matter their age. So thank you for your generous videos educating people on sicknesses, how plant based diets can save our lives, and also kindness to animals. I'm not vegan per sey...I take more of the plant-based approach, but we do love our animals too. Best regards!

I juiced a dandelion root the other day. It tasted like I crushed a prednisone into my juice. Sooooo bitter. Not giving up though. Just gotta refine the recipe.

Hi John. Great. video! Are your dandelions volunteers, or did you plant them? Just wondering if I could use the volunteers that are growing in my yard?
Anthony James
I watched one of your old videos on readying your beds for fall and winter . just wanted to say I Love Your Red Car. Heheh lol.

dandelion is an important herb in asian medicine. it is great for all of the things you mentioned and i think for preventing prostate and urinary issues. plus its safe and natural. i even used to give dandelion to my squirrel, tak-tak, because they get damp heat in the lower jiao from eating so many nuts. he was a bit prone to bladder issues. but dandelion helped and in the wild squirrels eat a lot of roots including dandelion. we can learn a lot from watching animals and what works for them. however your carrot sexy talk gave me flashbacks to the 'alien invasion' in lexx! haalp!
Free the dirt, man <3

Tyrone Harshaw
great show 😀
Robert Thornton
How about those dark red fingertips by the end. Is that mostly from the beet or do those purple carrots do this too?
Vertigo Studios
I was hoping to see you juice nothing but the Dandelion rhizome to see how much juice it produced.. it didnt seem to make any juice when you threw that first one in. Id like to see how many it took to get a quarter cup of juice.
Lydia Eddins
What do you use the fiberous bits for? Do you just compost them?
Hey john! Took a break from YouTube for a while so I haven't kept up on all your ideas about veg. What do you and your gf think about Whole Foods? I live in Vancouver and I have a limited balcony space for growing. I like to go to buy things at WFoods that are on sale but it is super expensive. I also hear from a little bird that WFoods is under the Monsanto umbrella. Thoughts?
Jane Castillo
do you sell purple carrot seeds?
I notice you stopped juicing with the kuvings wide shoot. Did it start jamming more or anything?
Jason Bean
I needs me a juicer!:)

Something Different
Don't let Lauren know that your more excited by purple carrots then her lol. I think there was hardly any juice that came out of the dandelion roots.
What's a good website to order a juicer in the eu?
Britney Beautiful
Do you know I think your hotter then normal and is because are healthy muaww! Thanks!
Emily BH
John, is that a flower vase you are drinking the juice out of? That is the largest, tallest highball glass I've ever seen!
I purchased 1000 dandelion seeds, I planted them in my garden in early March in TX, it's already May 1st and not one dandelion came out :( why do you think this is???
Stanley. Watson
Where can I get those carrot seeds from. Thanks for the great videos
Jacqueline Ovens
Where can I get seeds to grow the purple carrotts
Rush Yahr
The juicer concept, I kinda like that. I try to eat mostly paleo, but I have tried experimenting with pure vegan foods. I like to use garlic, I think it makes up for the fact that their is no meat. What exactly are you suppose to do with an eggplant? The thing looks like it should be cut like a steak and fried or something.
If you don't already know from looking in the mirror...(I haven't looked at your video's since last year when you helped me so much as i learned from you about planting my first garden and you sold me a vitamix and juicer, thank you so much) anyway, back to how you actually look younger by at least 5 years, maybe it's your girlfriend? I'm not getting personal, just kidding, I know it must be your clean vegan diet (the healthy version), just thought you should know. Have a nice day!

your hair look funny wih
John has garden bed head

John I know this is about dandelions and Im not sure if you've touched on this, but what do you know about wild lettuce and its benefits? Im asking because my wife has been a victim of back surgery since she was 23 and synthetic meds only work so far and the system is always shorting her or making her wait and the withdraws are terrible. We were doing some research about natural remedies and it came up. I find it funny she would rather take something that some organization says is fine over trying something in the yard after research and years and years of applied practice. Id rather know what im putting in my food. Thanks!
Your carrots are getting me excited too. Gunna need some alone time.

"For best health benefits". If this guy was Asian he would say "For best penis strength". I'm waiting for someone to tell people they need to eat grass to be healthy and strong like steers.
