Here is a compilation of the videos on the Seed 2 Table Network site. Some of these were filmed directly and some are created from presentations we’ve given over the years. We’ll try to get narrations of the presentations uploaded as soon as we can, but the slides fairly well speak for themselves.
From the Garden
These videos made by Jim Surkamp…
Starting with broccoli, but focusing mostly on tomatoes, and the different methods of trellising them, as well as early transplant protection.
This video shows the same tomatoes as the video above, about a month later, and goes into more detail about tomato trellising.
A video that discusses intensive planting, especially the Carrot-Radish interplanting and their interaction with leeks.
This part re-visits the beds shown earlier, and concentrates more on the leeks, and the replanting of fall crops for an intensive seven-crop bed.
