Creating Our Biggest Fall Garden EVER!
Our last vegetable garden was 7,000 square feet. This one is about 8,250 – and I should till up more!
(Note – I made a mistake in saying it was 12k ft2 in the video text. I didn't till that much in this video.)
Thanks to a neighbor, we have access to a tractor. Through the power of Science and Technology, we are planting our largest garden yet.
In this video we filmed the tilling process, in which we chopped up the grass at a shallow level in order to kill it off. In a few more days we'll lime the area and then till deeply and start planting. Stay tuned!

You made me laugh, Jen.
Land of the (cough) free, home of the John Deere!
You and Old Alabama Gardener should compare notes, sir.
There goes the “not enough explosions” complaint.
That stuff is like nazgul flammable.
That was quite the spark! Looking forward to seeing he upcoming videos!
A few questions:
How do you plan to keep deer and wild hogs out of the garden?
Is melting plastic really ok in the soil?
Will you have the soil tested?
This was such a teaser episode. Yet, so much fun! Especially watching Rachel handle that tractor! I do hope we get to see more of her.
Truly blessed with the best neighbors ever!
Melting plastic is terrible for the soil and the air. lol

No doubt 👍😋
This is gona be so cool, and educational to watch. I’m glad I get to watch from the start. Excitin times.
You have higher-octane Powerade than they sell around here.
It’s that strawberry-lemonade. That stuff packs a punch.
And THAT is why I don’t drink Powerade anymore. Well, at least not on school nights.
I am so happy for you even though it’s just a rental you have land you can do something with
Rachel! You go girl. Back in the US, back in the US, back in the U S of A.
It’s pretty amazing when the love of your life loves the same things as you. Rachel is the BOMB!
David, I have been following your channel since I think your 2nd year on YouTube. and I’m sure that you have lots of viewers that love your live streams, however I have a learning disability that makes it hard for me to learn effectively by reading or hearing about how to do something, I really love your episodes when you are in the garden doing things I can see and learn from, I do hope that you do more of these types of episodes now that you are back in the states.
Best of luck to you and your family as always. Peace my friend.
Check out Andrew Camarata……… The guy’s a modern day MacGyver.
Thank you, Kemper. I will keep that in mind.
@David The Good Thank you David! :-))
The next DTG adventure is Amish farming? Your wife looks happy, so that’s great!
One minute you’re planting corn and digging up yams with a cutlass in Grenada the next you’re on a tractor tilling up Bama dirt. Good ole Dave.
Holy smokes, that looks crazy! My neighbors always are uneasy when I burn stuff, that would send them over the edge. Lol
Good to see you doing what you do best. Setting stuff on fire! Welcome back, amigo.
Hey Rosehaven, I was going to tell David about OAG (Old Alabama Gardener), he is great. And yes, they should do a collaboration video together. It would be epic!☺
Can’t wait!!! I love that one of the first things you’ve done on your new home is put in a garden!!! TY DTG and family
Have you been to Buc-ee’s yet? It’s in your backyard. We stop every time we’re across the bay. Look forward to seeing the garden progress, especially now that we’re in the same zone.
