Oh my goodness! My first time watching & I’m I’m sitting here think what a tough lady you are! Such a go getter! You’re awesome! Angie Winger

Oh, wow, all of your hard work is really coming together! There’s been a noticeable transformation since the part 2 video. I’m really looking forward to seeing the final view of your new water feature. What a labor of Love!  Lynn and Richard, you should definitely have a picnic on your temporary sand beach! I’ve dug out tree stumps by myself, and I know how much hard physical labor is required. It’s exhausting… I’m going to watch Part 3 now since I’m a little bit behind on watching videos, but lately, I’ve been outside, planting like a crazy woman! ~Margie

The folding on the corners of the liner is impeccable 👏🏾. Looks custom cut. Rick’s Garden Diary

Hi Lynn and Richard, this is really fun on my end to watch the progress. I know it’s a ton of physical labor on your end. I get a few back and shoulder aches just watching. 🙂 I am really impressed with the design. It is going to be so beautiful. TY for sharing. It’s also fun to see how your garden gets leafier and more into Spring as I watch these pond progression videos. Take care Rusty

Richard is such a creative mind. Amazing work! Scott Miller

Lookin’ good you 2. It’s coming along nicely. Lots of muscle work but worth it in the end. I can’t wait to see it. Richard is always hungry, but I see why. Sprecher’s time! Jackie Pordon

U 2.ARE SOOOO.CUTE AND ARE EXAMPLES OF WHAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT. Sislertx

You 2 are a hoot! I’m glad you are taking it slow out in the garden. I like the idea of a “Sprecher’s break”. Happy to see your videos again. Take care Jackie Pordon

You two make a great team! You’re ambitious, productive, talented and knowledgeable. (Nice too!) Denise J

…I always check the length of your videos before sitting down with my coffee (too short… but beggars can’t be choosers). Your WG videos feel like HGTV professionally edited, very informative, clean family videos with two wonderful hosts. You could “stream 24/7” since you two must never sleep. You truly educate and inspire me with my home gardening and give me that push I need every now and then. Next time I even think of whining and feeling sorry for myself, I’ll watch this new pond project series. BTW, I will never forget your video on cleaning the old previous pond and the bottom unbelievable surprises… removing 500 pounds of roots! Hugs to you both. God bless. Sylvia Delk

Of all the garden channels I watch, Wisconsin Garden is my absolute favorite! You people are such an inspiration to me. Allen11able

I loved this video! I’m intrigued to know how the honeysuckle’s are doing 7 years later…. I just planted my first today here in Norfolk, England. Hoping to train it up against my back fence. Love your garden xx Philomena Graham

Glad to see things coming to life for you guys. Look forward to seeing more videos this coming spring and summer. Wesley Hackney

If the waterfall is returning, are the water lilies too! I’ve always been envious of them! TheFirstTimeGardener

Thank you. Wonderful educational video. Best of luck. Save Pchamama

Thank you so much for telling me the difference between big and little blue stem grass. I have seeds from both that I collected from my friend’s prairie. I am going to start a prairie garden in my back yard this year, and your description helped me decide which grass would be better for my small yard. Laura Marti

Very good advice!! Thanks. Amira Deshon

This was a fun video and it was great seeing Richard on the other side of the camera!! Fun! Misty Colleen

So enjoy your videos and loved the job that Richard did on the trees… Linda Weaver

Hey guys, interesting video I bumped into right from Cape Town South Africa. I’ve also subscribed to your channel. Anslin April

Hi this is Nathan again. Enjoyed the Topiary class. I have two Alberta spruce. Shall try your ideas. Thanks for the tip on the tool. Nathan Viswanathan

Seeing you both laugh at simple jokes like at 4:29 warmed my heart, young me in my 20s is taking notes 🙂 I hope to be able to do the same. Love! Freljil Hungi

Well Hello to my dear Friend’s! !! -what a difference in that Topiary. Richard you did and Amazing job on it. Now starts a L the work in our Gardens that is if we want them to look Beautiful. It’s always nice seeing you both. So until next time God Bless you both and have a Blessed Evening and Stay Safe my dear Friend’s. Happy Gardening! Joan Shute

Always great to see an appearance from Richard! Was the Wolverine shirt required for the job at hand? Perhaps soon in the months ahead we can bring you a Sprecher’s in person! Scott Miller

Wow, SUPER impressive topiary work! I can’t wait to see your beautiful gardens waking up for spring and summer! It’s always fun watching you two together! 😍😍 Linda, Houston, Tx. (Our temps have been in the 80s lately. Robert Baker

Nice straight forward and simple video… Ringside Judge

Dear Lynn and Richard, thank you so much for replying to my comment on your video. I would love to have your 23-page eBook highlighting our Garden Videos, arranging them by Topic of Interest from A thru Z, Your videos are the best I have seen with details and explaining the things I want. to ask to. I am new to the container gardens on my deck, as my big gardens days are long over but I enjoy my flowers, and all my house plants…I would love the eBook and I want to watch all your videos. I loved how Richard seem to read my mind with the questions I was going to ask you…I can’t say enough how very grateful I am that the Lord led me to you in my search for container gardening. Have a very healthy and blessed day. Your gardening friend, Lol God bless you both. Judy Michon

Hi Lynn and Richard! WOW is all I I say about your Garden. You two bring a big 😊SMILE to my face every time I watch you both. So, until next time God Bless you and your family and have a Blessed Evening and Stay Safe my dear Friends. Joan Shute

Oh my gosh Lynn, what a gorgeous and healthy-looking harvest of squash. I am impressed! You are correct, in the baskets on the porch they all look like they are part of a beautiful still life painting. Josh Mendle

Thank you so much. I am so glad I found you in my search, how to over winter geraniums. I live in southwest Michigan so our weather is much like yours. I enjoyed your video very much. I have subscribed. Judy Michon

Love that screened in porch, so versatile, in so many of your videos! Did you get the outside of that sided with the rest of your home, (I think that was last year)? Is the roof shingled to match the rest of the home? I think you two are fabulous, & I love the lifestyle and the home you’ve created. Thank you for all of your sharing. KeepingOurHome

Thank you very much for this video I am definitely going to be making ketchup this year in addition to BBQ sauce. And of course, I’m from Wisconsin so why wouldn’t I not try your recipe thanks. Ken Schoenberger

Thank you for the video! It is full of information. I can’t wait to experiment with all the geraniums my neighbor will be giving me!!! She usually throws them away. Maria Pedraza

Hi Lynn & Richard- You both brighten my day during these difficult things we live in. How are your 5 in 1 apple trees doing? I don’t have a garden this year but I am getting great helpful tips from you both for next year. Have a great day & take care. Jackie Pordon

Love the tour and your garden looks wonderful! I look forward to your videos and I think you’re the sweetest couple ever…God Bless. Laurie Bosworth

Thank you both for awesome garden know how. Love the 950 videos. Tammy Johnson

I watch all of your videos, you’re my background noise while I work, my coworkers listen to makeup videos or music, I listen to gardening videos and save the ones I can apply to my own garden. I’m a beginning gardener and your videos are fantastic I’ve learned so much! Jenny Dfrog

Hello. Thank you for your video. I live in Switzerland and for the first time I planted these beautiful flowers. I’m looking forward to multiplying them. In English, the name of these is Kansas Feathers. Best regards. Sylko

New sub. I think I finally found my gardening channel best for my region! Blue Dawning

I just discovered you while searching for a good video on pruning “weeping” deciduous ornamental trees. I prune these all the time but have not had the time to do a video and so your video is a great find! I know you did this five years ago, but it definitely is still very useful. Your love of plants and caring demeanor made this a delightful video to watch. I have subscribed to your channel and when I get the opportunity. I plan to binge-watch your videos! Thanks! Jeff Harris

Thank you for the info on mulching with straw! I am new to vegetable gardening and this video helped tremendously. I finally took the leap into vegetable gardening starting with seeds!! I’ve planted many years of flower gardens so I took the leap this year into veggie gardening. It’s a definite learning curve but with the help of people like you two my learning curve has stayed level. Thank you for sharing your knowledge it’s what keeps me going! Cheryl Morgan

I like the fact that you are using a food mill. Some videos do not…and i don’t like eating seeds. Kevin West

Your video was absolutely very explanatory and detailed that I’ve been looking for. I have two big ones in front of my porch and I want to try to do something that would make them look nicer. Thank you so much for sharing, very helpful. Wendy Guerra

I have been watching so many crime TV episodes lately that it’s been bringing a lot of discouragement. I hopped onto my PC instead and said “God, I want to hear from You!” and then your video appeared. When you talked about Noah I thought “THESE ARE MY KIND!” Thank you. You ARE sweet. I loved your sweet conversations with the ants. It reminded me so much of myself that it made me laugh. Elise Weatherly

I’ve been watching a number of your videos, especially since we are not as free to go as we were before this pandemic.  I do watch your videos on a smart TV through YouTube which does not have the capability of “liking” or “subscribing”.  I have to get onto my computer if I want to comment on a video. I enjoy the content very much.  It’s fun to watch you and other folks with videos in the area (I’m in Bayside).  As I said to a friend recently, the people we watch regularly become like family.  I even drove past your house one day when I was itching to get out.  I’d like to visit someday.  I also sent a friend in Palm Springs the link to your most recent video where you’re lamenting all the weeds.  He wonders why I’m weeding all the time.  It was such a good example. Thanks and keep up the good work and stay safe. Cheryl Rausch

This was a great video. I can’t wait to make some jam. I didn’t know about adding butter to prevent foaming. Thanks for sharing. God Bless and Happy canning. Kathy Johnsom

Thank you for answering my comment as well as for all the good content. I love to watch you both. So few garden shows in our time zone. Thanks again!!! Kathy Kroering

First, I want you to know how much I enjoyed watching your video with this title:  Deer Netting Deterrent – Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 701… I gardened for years but had to almost totally quit because of sciatica and a few other issues.  I’ve missed it so much, and your video got me longing for it all over again.  I loved it, and I can see you love it.  It was so easy to love both of you immediately.  (And I think you’re both beautiful!)  You seem so warm and welcoming.  If you ever get anyone being mean to you, I would personally like to beat them up. Thank you so much for sharing your special gift to others!! Take care, stay safe and God Bless!!Susie

As always, your garden is stunning and inspiring. I learned all kinds of flowers by watching your videos. It’s true. I first fell in love with your peonies…a Peony grower up Queensland (an all year -ound warmer part of Australia) and he was growing his lot in full sun. That gave me hope to get one to grow successfully in my yard. And, btw, I started loving bearded iris again when I saw your lot bloom…Mary Playford

Hi Lynn. I just want to thank you and Richard so much for informing us about the all metal garden hoses. My son gave me one for Mothers’ day and it has made my watering so much easier. I can actually put it up and away when I am finished and no sweat. That makes my husband happy too. Thank you for all of your videos. Barbara Fegley

I very much enjoy you and Lynn and your videos. Not to mention your kind gentle ways. Without being overt, you send a wonderful message to your viewers. Blessings always, Jill Keim

Just wanted to let you both know again, how much I love watching your videos and seeing the beautiful space you’ve made.  A hearty and healthy Irish wish to you both and keep the videos coming!   Jane and Chuck Maloney, Springfield MO

That was worth the watch    loved all the info   thank you. Rosemary Douglass

This was very helpful. Lots of videos and blogs address normal pruning, but I am trying to manage an overgrown patch and I missed the winter pruning season. This gave me clarity about removing loads of these and keeping some.  Thank you! JC Crouch

What a beautiful, grand garden. L. Robin

I love all your garden tours. They are so informative. Since watching your videos I feel more “brave” to try new things in my garden. I love your honesty about how you thought something would be good and later regret it. It makes me feel like it is ok to take a risk. If it doesn’t work out how you expect, that is ok. Thanks for the inspiration and for the guide you sent. It is very helpful. Hannah Babiak

Wonderful garden. Thank you for sharing…Gardening is a blessing especially now. Take care and be safe. Amalia Gomez

I have been a subscriber to your channel for quite some time and have looked at most of the videos from then to now. I am looking at you from Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. This is not a gardening comment although I absolutely love to look at the beautiful flowers and the fruits and vegetables that you plant and harvest…My comment is on the way the both of you get along. Not often one sees spouses behave so beautifully with one another. Please keep that relationship going and stay safe. Jamelia Khan Worrell

Thank you SO MUCH for the very thorough, helpful and informative response to my inquiry. You and Richard are truly amazing. Your energy and passion for what you do is incredible and endless.

Love you two. Good videos. I’m from River Falls, transplanted to TX. Kathy Carloss

Thank you so much Lynn! You are a sweetheart. My family recently moved to Wisconsin from California so I am learning how to garden in the Midwest and it is very new concept for me as the weather and growing seasons here are so different from California. I am watching your videos hoping to learn new gardening techniques for Midwest weather. Nina TranLe

Thank you both and pepper for all the fantastic help… Gloria Bailey

I just discovered your “Wisconsin Garden” channel a few weeks ago and have been binge watching daily. Thanks for sharing your knowledge of gardening. I look forward to watching you garden grow through the summer months. Stay well. Julia Morton

WisconsinGarden Ahhh thank you. I love your channel you explain things so well, and when a question pops up in my head, you normally cover it shortly after. Happy growing. The Happy Human

Lynn, I wanted to tell you two how much I have enjoying watching your videos.  Being secluded gives me time to sit down and watch all your shows I access on YouTube, and I have watched them multiple times.  I am an avid Gardner and thoroughly enjoy watching you two.  I give you a Thumbs up each and every time I see you.  Of course, once I gave you an electronic thumbs up, I just give you my thumb so you can see me from the TV.  Keep the shows coming.  I would really like to get to know you better.  I hybridize daylilies and hibiscus, so I am a passionate Gardner.  Hope to hear from you soon.  God Bless you both. Gerald Picus

I appreciate your understanding of gardening and have learned a lot – from Zone 3. Debbie Sirota

Lynn, I found your YouTube last year. You are such a good teacher and explanations are easy to follow and understand. It is so enjoyable and relaxing watching you in action in the garden. In times like we are experiencing, it is great to go to this site and forget about the more unpleasant things that we face. Your episode on iris was so helpful…I wasn’t sure what was happening to my Iris’ but followed your advice and was able to save the good plants. Thank you! Joseph Cirasella

Richard and Lynn are so special that they will never fully understand their true stature of greatness among those that they have touched. I am lucky because of you. John Cole

I am a new viewer and fellow zone 5 Wisconsinite. I have already learned so much from you. Thanks for your wisdom, wonderful attitude, and sweet, loving relationship! Ann S

I just got done watching you answer questions. If I were not as crazy about gardening as you are, I would still watch you anyway. You are so delightful to watch! Lynn, you looked real beautiful with your hair fixed so neat. I do like it sticking out all over though and I love your mischievous, sweet smiles too. Almut Niederman – Germany

I love this question and answering thing you two have started! Thanks so much. Last year my daughter and I both had squash bugs. Lots! It was a daily battle. We would spray them with a mister of water, Dawn detergent and something else. I think I told you last year. I had three kinds. Thanks for all your help. Nina Nina

Thank you for your videos during these “indeterminate” times. It helps to calm and refocus thoughts to a positive topic. This is just what’s needed from the corona virus news. Sending well wishes and hope to everyone. We can and will get through these uncertain times together! God Bless and keep you safe. Veronica

Looking good Richard! Loving your shirts and greatly enjoying the question and answer videos. Mary Fallon

Hello Lynn and Richard! Since watching your video on Zinnias I have planted some and I’m always getting compliments on them! Thank you for your inspirational and informative videos! – Amal from Saudi

Pepper is a sweetie. I’m glad to see you back as well. I really missed you last summer when you took a little time off because of Richard’s surgery. You are such a sweet person and Richard reminds me of my dad who passed away over ten years ago. So besides being informative your videos give me a warm feeling. Richard is too young to be my dad though, he’d be in his late eighties if he had lived. Dianne Hasse

I’m enjoying the questions and answers! Thanks for bringing joy into the day. Scott Miller

Hi Lynn and Richard. Well I went out and worked in my Garden also. It sure was a Beautiful day and I couldn’t let it go by without being outside. I Love your new member to your family Pepper. He sure looks like a good pup. Oh, Lynn I Love, Love, Love your chimes. My Dad made me Beautiful Chime years ago and I Love it. They are so Calming. Thank you for sharing. So, until next time God Bless you and Richard and have a Blessed Week. Joan Shute

Thank you for this educational lesson on irises, over the last few years I’ve learned so much about gardening because of your channel. I was outside yesterday in my yard in southern New Hampshire doing a gardening clean up like you and working until the sun almost set. I couldn’t stop! The temperature was 71 degrees in the afternoon and the fresh air was so lovely. Spring is coming. Kelley Amador

Watching from Brazil. I am Very happy to be in this Channel. Wisconsin has a beautiful Nature and so lovely people. A big huge for every Wisconsin people. Rogeria Catto

I just love you guys so much. I wish you were my neighbors. I’ve just started, caught the gardening bug big time. This will be my first year trying lots of new things. Elberta peaches (3), tomatoes, cukes, squash and some others. Also put some zinnia seeds down. Here in Texas. Keep up the great work, such lovely educators. Matt Barrett

Thank you for replying to my question. Am trying to find some seed but will also look for plants. I enjoy your videos so much. Your music makes me happy. Watch the videos every day. Keep up the good work. Linda Bucek

I love all of the plants in your garden. Absolutely amazing that you two must take care of all of them yourselves! I have perhaps only a tenth of the area and think it is way too much work! But so worthwhile! Love all your videos – especially ones when you get to munch. Patti Nakano

Hello Wisconsin Gardener! Love your channel… Debra Turner

Thanks for the update on your tree peonies. I’ve been watching them since the beginning. Glad to see them doing so well. Richard Sanderlin

 

Thank you. I have watched some of your newer videos. My boyfriend has actually been watching your videos for quite some time, and I’ll watch with him sometimes. I went back and started watching your videos from the beginning because there were so many topics, I found interesting. I’m just working my way through them! Jaime Swift

I’m in the North in UK it does get down to minus 10 to minus 12 and have just got Hibiscus extreme (hardy) was lovely to see how great yours are. Hope I can get mine to flourish – loved watching your video – thank you. Jean Hooson

Thank you so much for the liatris seed from the previous year. It took a while for me to recognize the emerging plant because I thought it was horsetail weed. I pulled some out but let this patch mature. This is the curly liatris which is exposed to 10 hours of sunlight per day. Thanks again for all your hard work. You really do care & share. The planet is a better place because of you two. Rosemary McGrenera

Just a quick email to let you guys know how much we have enjoyed driving by your gardens!  I have told my husband several times that if we ever saw anyone outside, we would have to stop to chat. I had no idea until yesterday that you guys had such a big online presence. We watched a few of your videos…So exciting! -Erin and Curtis Mihor

You have the cutest little garden. Glad all your hard work is paying off. Chris & Marella Ogden

God Bless you!!!!! You made it!!!! The background behind you in the final minutes is simply breathtaking….Kudos and congrats on all of your efforts… everything looks so lush and colorful. Marc Pando

Thank you to both of you for sharing your beautiful garden. Mabel Goddard

I have to tell THANKS as your explanation is very easy and such way that I (due to lack of understating conversation as my native language is Gujarati-Indian) have no problem to understand you . I watched your video blog # 284 now I’m going to watch the Blog-285 Thanks again Chandrikkumar Udani

I really enjoyed this video! I don’t know too much about scapes because I have never planted garlic before. I think I watched a video you produced on planting garlic in the fall and I learned how to do to it. I really enjoy listening to the banter back and forth between you both! Thanks for sharing! Pat Schomann

Thank you very much for sharing! Since watching your video, get a lot of help, every time you two humorous video very happy, today’s garlic can stir-fry meat, very delicious, you can try. Lixin Bao

You two!!! You had me laughing so hard tears were rolling down my cheeks!!! Lynlalalal

Sounds like you guys have your work cut out for you. Your garden is gorgeous as usual. I learn a lot about gardening from you guys. Keep these videos coming and you guys are such a cute couple. Chrystal Sabin

You’ve inspired me! Today while weeding I was just going to bend my daffodil leaves and rubber band them. Instead I braided them and they look great lying on the mulch. I can hardly wait until the mail woman sees them tomorrow. Hahaha! Big smile here and thank you for the clever idea. Veronica

Fabulous video! i absolutely love your garden and all the things you add to the garden. And, your light balls that was awesome (i thought i was the only person that loved that kinda’ lighting) thank you for sharing your time. Aurora Gonzalez

Thank you for all your upbeat and positive vibes you present to all the viewers. It makes getting out in the yard more of a treat than a chore. Thank you! Aaron Francis

That’s is so great! Your garden is awesome and there was some Russian flowers (Siberian Rose – orange Globeflower) that I tried but could not grow here in Brookfield from seeds. I am from Siberia and it was really exciting to see them in your video successfully growing less than a mile from my house. Elena Sakman

Excellent Video. I spend way too much time in the Gardens as my wife may attest. I’ve been looking for a better way to label as I propagate my lily varieties. Wonderfully done. Suffering from being in the “State of Geez” and CRS. Thanks Stephen Hill

It was so amazing to visit you and Lynn, I had a great time exploring your garden and I am so grateful to you both for taking the time to show me around!  It is so awesome to see people taking the time and effort to transform their property into a paradise that provides and enhances the beauty of this world!  Alec LePoidevin

Hello lovely! I just adore you two working together in your garden(s). I forgot to send you a big “Thank you”. I got one of your videos where you were planting a bed and using an umbrella while you were working. It was one of those moments where I thought, hey, why didn’t I think of that? So now instead of roasting in the hot sun, I set up an umbrella for myself. 💕💕 I’m in zone 5, similar to your conditions from Southern Ontario. Missy Gilly

I just absolutely LOVE watching the two of you! <3 Classy Conservative

You are awesome! The little snippets of your garden look beautiful! Can’t wait to see more videos 😀. Gardening down here in south Florida is like working on the surface of the sun most of the time, but it’s a labor of love. Just seeded some zinnias and came across your video on YouTube. Sue Macedonio

Oh my gosh, I’m thrilled to have found your channel! Thank you for sharing all of your garden tips! Missy Gilly

Exceptionally beautiful garden as always. I’m so sad to see the peach trees dying. I was first introduced to your channel through your peach harvest videos you did in the past. I also loved seeing how you made preserves, jams, jellies, etc. Ever since, I’ve been completely hooked on your channel. I love the videos you put out. Have a great rest of your day! Spencer Pendleton

I agree with you Rick. At 7:13 when you say wild and lush, I also see beauty. But I understand Lynn. I use to be more ‘Lynn’ like. Now I am absolutely more free. I think watercolor painting has helped me ‘loosen up’. Thank you for sharing your paradise. Lark’s Garden

I love your videos, your spirit and beautiful gardens! Aurora Gonzalez

Lovely couple. I enjoyed listening to the video just as much as I found it useful…A well-presented video; very helpful. Thank you for sharing. Lauri P

You two are too cute. Thank you for the tour. Mary Lynn Haynes

Hello, love how you two work together! I’m so happy to see your informative videos! Missy Gilly

Just happened onto your channel. LOVE IT !!! Can’t wait to see the rest of your videos! Kimberly Ames

Thanks for the tour guys. You could call the wilder parts naturalistic planting. It’s trending here in the UK and Europe where a lot of thought, plan and work goes into a bed of plantings but yet looks completely natural; as if Mother Nature and time has done the planting…Foliage Fan

I can’t wait until part 6! You have some of the best specimens to enjoy seeing. Both of you always share great gardening information as well. Scott Miller

Excellent! Thank you. Juno Chen

Have to agree with Richard that the lush area he loves is just magnificent! But then all of your garden is magnificent. Good job guys! Jane Vt.

Always enjoy watching your videos. Kathy David

Amazingly beautiful, always makes me smile when I see a new post. Somehow, I missed Part 2 so going to go there now, can’t miss a post! The knowledge you have is mind boggling and remembering all of the names and growing habits of your beautiful gardens is wonderful – Stay well and warm hugs and thanks for sharing all of this with us, xoxo Barbara White

I enjoy your channel so much! We just moved to Wisconsin (Wausau) last June, from Southern Nevada so it is quite a change. My husband, who is originally from Wausau is retired military, so we’ve lived in many places over the years. I am SOOO excited for spring, and Midwest gardening. Amber K Creative

Wow, I wonder how your plants and garden took to all that snow and frigid temps! I guess I must be grateful. I live in Southern California where the only snow we get is in the high desert and mountains. But this winter was one to remember. It was cold (for us at least), coldest it’s been in decades, and we got so much rain that got us out of our drought and then some. I live not far outside downtown Los Angeles where in some parts we had snowflakes falling. That is extremely rare for us! And exciting. But now were looking forward to spring and getting all my spring plants ready! Looking forward to what’s to come for Wisconsin Garden. Thank you for all you do! Aaron Francis

Wow you guys have been through so much tough weather. Here in Raleigh NC we were wimps compared to you guys. Wesley Hackney

I love your channel as it’s a source of garden inspiration! Alien11able

I just bought my first house in SE WI and will be starting my first garden! i don’t know any local gardeners yet, so i will be watching your channel and following your lead this spring. I can’t wait to get started after years of dreaming about my own yard. Thanks for making these videos i am learning so much already. Michaela Peterson

Good to see you guys!! I was just thinking about yall this afternoon!! I figured once it warmed up enough up there, we would see you guys! Take care & look forward to the next video! Amber Sepulvado

Lynn and handsome Richard , please come out side , make a video , even there is nothing up yet , you can make fun of all the brown grasses , dead twigs , dry leaf ..i don’t care just don’t make fun of me 😛 i really miss you guys .I was so grumpy ..now i feel happy to see you guys 😀 thank you for the videos <3 love to hear your voice. Grumpy Cat

Thank you so much for sharing your garden videos. They are a delight as well as informative. It’s also a pleasure to see how much you both enjoy your garden and how well you work together. Richard has done some beautiful landscape projects including the pond. As I set watching your videos in my PJ’s drinking coffee and eating chocolate, I think “Do they ever rest”. You both work so hard, giving such time, energy and money to your beautiful property and it shows. Yesterday I came across one of your videos on YouTube, then went to your website and began to binge watching them starting with video one and playing them in chronological order…. It is with great pleasure to watch your garden videos and being allowed to follow you around your beautiful property. It is odd how by reading a book or watching a video that you feel a connection. We are connected, like minded, in enjoying the beauty we can create in our dooryard. Martha Colwell

You are the sweetest love to watch you. Hal Mashini

Hi from Chicago. I have been looking for a gardening channel in my zone to follow. What zone are you in? When I heard, “Oh no, Mr. Bill”, I broke out in laughter and hit the subscribe button. Haven’t heard that line in years. Looking forward to catching up on your past videos and the new videos to come. Francine Kupec

Lynn and Richard. I love your Wisconsin Garden videos and have been getting into butterfly gardening myself here in Missouri. Just want to say that you are a lovely couple, and it is really cool to see how you support each other in your interests. Katie Rash

Thank you for allowing me to garden vicariously through your videos. I am in a condo in Pewaukee, so my “gardening” is limited to some pots on a small patio and front porch. Thanks for all the wonderful videos! Connie

Love your channel and videos. Great humor, lots of great info, and love. Video quality is always great as well, you guys are a pleasure to watch. Angela Burnett-Mero

Hello new to your channel from the U.K. Lana Ahmed

I always enjoy your videos …and I too am looking forward to getting more seed catalogues in the mail (they are my version of ‘toy’ catalogues). LOL I love that you also leave lots of your perennials and grasses stand through the winter, so do I (at least until late February or early March). Next gardening season my plan is to have more raised beds that will contain both veggies and flowers. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas… stay warm and healthy! Margie Schaecher

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year from Denmark. Thanks for all the great videos this year. Ann Weber

Love your garden tours they are very informative…my friend from Scotland so dutifully reminded me thistle is the national flower of Scotland and not a weed. I’ll just go with that! Watching your videos and impatiently waiting for spring keep them coming. <3 Patricia Hoeger

I was so thrilled to came across your YouTube Channel and hoping you won’t mind my way of reaching out. I am from the Tropical Country of the Philippines and I was so amazed of how beautiful Hibiscus are in your Country. I was wondering how were you able to produce those beautiful varieties and make them bloom so beautifully in a temperate country like yours. My name is Jose Marie O. Trangco, you can call me JM.

Hello. Loved your recipe and your happy attitude. Very nice video that is easy to follow. I shall follow your recipe next fall when apples fill my garden too. Thank you and God bless. Davidogan

Hi from Ireland. I’ve just started watching your channel. I believe that Richard’s favourite peony is called Bowl of Beauty Mary Fallon

Hello Ms.Lynn, This is Irene, your brand new subscriber … I just love your channel (and your husbands interacting with you) it’s hilarious!!! … Now I’m off to see more of your videos!!!

Beautiful artwork! We certainly do appreciate the hard work that went into it. Enjoyed the sayings so much! You both are constantly ever evolving and so much fun to watch …keep it up….we just love all that you do! : Quiet by Nature 20

Hi Lynn, I watched your never-ending garden clean up just in time. We were away this week just to arrive home to Northern NJ to a foot of beautiful snow. I waited to trim back my hardy hibiscus, Montauk daisy and asters when I knew there was no threat of warm temps as it seems to change every year. Guess I waited a bit too long. Just a thank you for your informational videos that keep me informed and up to date with tips and tools and GF apple crisp recipe. I love my Root Assassin shovel and may ask Santa for the Sensei trimmer from video 851. Keep warm and healthy this winter, God Bless. Rebecca”

Hi…I’m a fellow Wisconsinite living up here in the Fox Valley region right near Lake Winnebago. I love your channel and just found it a couple of weeks ago. I’ve enjoyed watching what you’re doing in your garden for fall clean up especially sprinkling seeds around in hope’s for new plants in the spring. Jamie Vance

I’m so happy that I found your channel. Just recently I discovered it and have learned so much. You two are great and funny too boot. … Your channel is so educational and informative. Thanks for teaching me so much. Chrystal Sabin

Love your videos. I’m looking forward to the frost so the grass cutting will end here in NY. Thanks for all the enjoyment your videos give me, you guys really should have a million subscribers. Chowceo

Beautiful in every season, the richness of summer filling the seed pods of spring. Your garden is an inspiration for me and I learn something new from you every video. Thanks for the video and all the ones you have shared with us this year. Now rest, much love and peace, blessings Wilma Gregory

 

I just discovered your site and enjoyed the tour of your garden. Sue Proffitt

Love your videos, very educational and entertaining! Michael Stigler

Breathtaking garden with varieties of plants…loved the tour…Sherry Yoosuf

Hello Richard and Lynn, Wow, that was fast. I was thinking that it would take days if and before I would get a response. I’m elated!!! Thank you so very much. The recipe looks great. I will make it next weekend, if not sooner and will let you know how it turns out. I’m sure it will be great. I’m liking this YouTube stuff (smile). Thanks again Cyndy

WisconsinGarden :Thank you for your kind words and I wish you and yours the best. I wish I could express how much I appreciated your reply. You’re good people. Gerald N.

How ironic that I stumble upon this video a year and one day after you created it! I wanted to comment on how much I enjoy your videos. I find them all so informative and even relaxing. You seem like the sweetest couple! I enjoy how loving you treat one another as you create these videos together. Your garden(s) are lovely! I am envious but you give me inspiration for my own. Thank you for your efforts and beautiful work…I’m delighted to have found you two out here. As a camera-shy, self-conscious gal myself, I appreciate you even more for stepping out of your comfort zone to share with all of us. Richard obviously knew what he was doing and his tenacity in convincing you to tolerate the camera lens has given us such treasures to watch and learn from. Thanks to both of you! I look forward to keeping up with all of your future endeavors! My best to you both…. Paula Bee

Your garden is so beautiful, so I’m sure your salsa made from your veggies is fabulous. Love the video. Angela Burnett-Mero

Have been watching your videos here in UK. Thanks for making it easy how to harvest blazing star.  My family grows them but until now I wasn’t sure what to Do, but with your video it has made it look so easy. Kind regards. Vivienne Dunlop

Just want to say again how much I appreciate all you and Rick do.  Seeing all the work both of you have done this summer spreads inspiration and motivation to do stuff here.  You’re a great influence on me.  I learn something new every time I watch a video, or relearn something I might have forgotten. Scott

Richard and Lynn – That was a fabulous tour. I heard wonderful comments as our group was heading for their cars. They were astounded by your creativity and commitment. My favorites: that beech tree and the daphne. I deadheaded and mulched my front garden beds today – in honor of you two, who are so inspiring! Thanks again, Roseann

This video popped up on my homepage for recommendations. You guys are adorable! I really loved your banter. It’s obvious that you enjoy each other’s company. How you two interact was just as enjoyable as your lovely gardens. You gotta new subscriber! Nia Lin

Just finished watching this video. You’ve done a good job explaining everything. I’m looking forward to using the seaweed extract/vodka inoculation to plant the garlic. Looks like it will be worth it seeing how you got very big bulbs in summer of 2018! Thanks so much for taking the time to explain things so well. I appreciate your humor too! Pat Schomann

Hi, I am Tony. Originally from Pakistan but living in Taiwan since long-long time. Although i have so much interest in gardening and farming so I am always watching lots of lots of YouTube video from all over the world. Today I came along one of your tomato ketchups making and canning video which is about 5 years old. After that I wanted to watch more of your videos and maybe the latest ones. So, I chose this latest video of you introducing your tomato plants and planting some other flowers and renovating your other parts of your garden. I want to tell you I love your both videos even though I would watch more of your videos later. Besides all other aspects what I love most is both of your bonding, love and respect for each other. And how you together making these lovely videos is just remarkable. My best wish for both you and I wish both of you have a long healthy life together and keep people loving you. Cheers. Yo Yo

Though I do not usually advocate visiting YouTubers’ homes, my husband and I just loved our visit with Richard and Lynn at their lovely garden. We stopped by to drop off some books for the little free library after we were invited. I wanted to see it and show it to my husband so we could make our own for our home in a West Allis. They happened to be home and graciously gave us a tour of their now famous Wisconsin Garden. Richard was so full of energy and great advice while Lynn was as sweet as she is in the videos. My husband and I are very grateful to them for all the years of HARD WORK they have put into their fun as well as educational videos because they have taught us how to garden and what is possible when it comes to modifying your garden space over the span of years. Some things work out and some things don’t and that’s just the way it goes, but Wisconsin Garden rolls with the circumstances. They somehow manage to give me confidence every year to try new things, share, and care. Our little free library project will start soon and it’s all thanks to them. Seriously, I don’t know where they get all that energy from but it’s simply amazing. Thanks again for all you’ve done in our Wisconsin Garden community. Vada Ann

I love the Wisconsin Garden videos on YouTube and the Voight’s webpage. Though I am not in, or from, Wisconsin (I live in Portland, OR), I appreciate the uplifting tone of both the videos and website… and the gardening tips are great (I definitely use the tomato tricks with baking soda and powdered milk!) Mike Groszkruger

Thank you for the informative tutorial of your beautiful garden. I’m a beginner at gardening so watching your Utube videos have given me ideas of what to plant in my drought considered area in Southern Cal. Not many videos explain the different types and names of flowers/plants which yours does and love the idea of labeling your flowers/plants. Love, love watching your videos. Thanks again. Katrina Eaton

The Wisconsin Garden is wonderful resource both visiting in person or via the internet. Rick and Lynn are retired teachers who approach aspects of gardening in a relaxed learning environment. Their eclectic, experimental garden is home to various plant varieties of vegetable, fruit, flowers, trees, bushes, and even pond life. A visit in person will leave you with something learned, and a visit on their Wisconsin Garden YouTube channel is a wealth of techniques, instructions, and tips. Plus you will have some fun along the way with these two friendly hosts. Scott & Sarah Miller

Hi Lynn. Thank you so much for your videos! they have changed my gardening life! Nancy Lichtenstein

Hi, I am in Kentucky zone 6 b also, found your channel about a year ago and have been hooked ever since…. I have learned a lot from watching you, Lynn and Richard. Thank you for sharing! Roxanne Vitai

Everything looks beautiful. I love watching your videos. You are both so informative and sweet as can be. Thanks for all you do and the wonderful tips. I never knew about the powdered milk. I am going to have to give that a try. Happy Gardening.

Enjoy that wonderful pond and space. It looks amazing. Betty Weinberg

Everything looks amazing, this is our first year with garlic and last weekend cut all our scapes. I have to say Garlic is the easiest to grow. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful tips. Celeste Gardner

Good morning Lynn, everything looks wonderful. I empathize humidity with you… it’s hard to work under those conditions. However, when you turn around and see your accomplishments, it is well worth the effort. I love your videos and enjoy hearing your voices, it’s like a long-lost friend I wish I knew in person. God bless and take care, Chris Littebrant – Raleigh NC

I’ve been watching Wisconsin Garden videos for several weeks now. I look forward to all their new videos. They’re very informative and just a lovely couple to watch. I only wish I had discovered these videos years ago. Pamela Descoteaux

You two are an absolute joy and delight to watch as you work together on your garden! I would not find two souls more down to earth than you two! Love watching your videos even though I don’t have the space to be able to do all that you do but I do get a lot of plant knowledge from you. Best to you from the west coast! Priya S.

Amazing gardens! The diversity is more than impressive… Thanks very much! Holly Huebner

I love to watch the tour of your garden! … You both are so inspiring! Meredith Klein

What a sweetheart Richard was to bring you those surprises! The two of you have no idea how wonderful it makes me feel to watch your hard work and see the beautiful bounty of your efforts. Love you all. Barbara White

Thank you very much Lynn & Richard, it’s very kind of you to answer me, I live in Portugal, so I hope my bulb can keep growing because the weather here is not so cold and with your recommendations I’m sure I’m on the right path xx Liz Tovar

Wow, yo guys never cease to impress. I watched the entire waterfall series and thought you might be done with construction, but you had more surprises for us. The decks look amazing! You have inspired me! Now to light a fire under my other half…Take care, Jean Polkoski

God bless you both more & more!!!!! I love you two. You’re so down to earth and cheerful. Your property is beautiful and that crimson red arbor is everything. I can’t stop watching these videos; they’re putting me in the mood for spring. Royaltiri

Luv your spunk, and your interaction with your husband as well as your obvious love and respect for your neighbor. You are good People! Noel Griffith

Just wanted to say hello :-). I’m Jean… one of your new subscriber! 🙂 I am a Filipina, but living in UK (Shropshire, England). I found your channel and I just wanna say how I love your YouTube videos, you and your husband are definitely a team! I love your irises…I am new to gardening. only really started to garden when we moved back to the UK in Dec 2012, (have lived in Switzerland for 12 years). Though I’m a newbie, I am a keen learner and I surely am enjoying doing it in our tiny garden…again, thank you for all your videos! I loooooove them and keep them coming! Jean Leach

Hey there! I was looking for information on Zinnia’s and found your AMAZING blog. Still watching a lot of the older episodes and learned a lot so far. Sadly, we don’t have these huge gardens here in the Netherlands…Gosh i can only envy you ha ha. Barbara van Eldijk Bouwens

So glad you decided to do a winter tour. You have a beautiful garden and is great to be able to see the beautiful changes that the seasons have to offer. Camila SunJoy

Ah yes. the January thaw came and went. It was nice while it lasted. Now southern Ontario is into the deep freeze again… Sheila Broad

Been watching your videos for about a year now and I just have to say, I LOVE THEM. Your garden is always gorgeous and there is always something new going on…Keep up the awesome work fine people. Eric Euteneier

Good morning from England. Good to see you. Lara Garcia

Enjoyed your video Lynn and your garden always looks so nice know matter what time of year it is anyway you mention you had a little bit of snow we had some as well not much I would say about an inch or so it did not stay around too long well talk to you later. Jackie Littlefield

What a fabulous place to visit. Thanks for sharing this with us. We too in Jersey grow more than is expected. Although this winter is putting a real stress on some. Can hardly wait for it to be over and spring comes. Take care, Blessings. Wilma Gregory

Hello from Canada! I just stumbled upon your channel and subscribed immediately. Oh, my goodness, your yard is such an oasis! You both are such an inspiration to me and to all of your viewers, I am sure. Although your beautiful yard is most definitely a lot of work, it is obvious that it is a labor of love. It is such a treat to see all the beautiful blooms and shrubbery, especially at this time of year. We just came through a cold snap here, -55 degrees F so I think I will make a pot of coffee and enjoy another video. I think I have some catching up to do. Keep up the amazing work and thank you so much for sharing! Sharon Olson

Hello Wisconsin Garden. I absolutely love your videos. Jessica Barron

I love your videos.They are like “The Reading rainbow”..only~rainbow gardens,for adults..Keep The Faith Homestead

Just started watching your videos and have to say that I really enjoy them. You have created a beautiful garden haven all around your property and it is clearly a labor of love for both of you to take care of and create. Very inspiring and it is making me look forward to spring that much more! Hoboker

I enjoy your videos. I watch several vlogs and I’m always fast forwarding through other people’s videos because they talk and talk and talk. But the two of you have just the right balance of personality and information. Always learn something new from you. Thank you for sharing with us. Nancy Bennett

Hi Lynn & Richard! Congratulations on #800!! I have to tell you the smartest thing I have ever done gardening was not in the dirt/soil (LOL Richard) at all. It was subscribing to your channel. I have so many plants in my gardens that I had never heard of or seen before because of you. Another big lesson learned is seed saving, honestly it just never occurred to me, I just divided plants, but I now have 20 envelopes filled with seed. Thank you for all you do, keep up the good work!! – Jean Polkoski

I so love your videos…thank you for allowing us, your followers, into a small part of your life and making us feel like family! Christine – West Jordan, Utah

I am only 69, don’t eat much and love to laugh – Will you adopt me? Seriously though, I am so grateful and blessed to have found you on my computer. You are such giving and warm people and bring such joy and beauty to everyone who watches your Vlogs. Thank you, thank you, thank you – God Bless You – Barbara White

New subscriber here – the other week I just happened upon your videos – and I am sure glad I did! You two are the cat’s pajamas – and then some LOL! Impressed & inspired by all your energy & positive attitudes! If I was Calvin (as in Calvin & Hobbes) I would put you in a duplicator machine – we could use more like you in the world! God Bless!! P.S. You don’t need to go rooftop to impress me – I was already – please be careful!!!!! 🙂 Annie65H

Dear Lynn and Richard, you two are goldmines…..true goldmines. If people only knew how much money, time, effort and knowledge it takes to do what you do, they would all agree! You both inspire me so much. I lost my husband of 36 years a few weeks ago, and I am deeply grieving. Your relationship reminds me of ours. Partners for life, lovers for life and friends for life! Thank you for all you do. Linda Kordich

I visited Wisconsin Gardens today. Their yard looks like a park! It is absolutely stunning – flowers, shrubs, vegetable gardens, and a “Book Library” for people to stop and read, take home, or donate a book. I even had some of my garden questions answered. Jan Endries

Good morning Lynn and Richard ~ First, let me say ‘thank you!’ for your great response to my initial inquiry. Never did I expect such wonderful customer service (and I’m not really even your customer!). Your obvious commitment and love for what you do is refreshing and appreciated. Doni Beauregard

…I thought my parents were the hardest working retired people I know but the two of you beat them! Thanks for all your videos. Carol Jean Gardens

I am amazed by your gardens. As I sat here with a severe head cold, on the best day we’ve had all season, I watched all 4 parts and you brightened my day…You open your gardens, your knowledge and your hearts to us all the while finding some semblance of sanity in what we call lives – bravo and thank you! Susan Mandeville

Hey! I’ve never commented but I feel compelled to reach out to you guys. Four years ago, we lived in Portland OR and had sustained many many years of victory garden gardening. I managed to feed my family of 6 with much of what I grew (and canned) and was even featured in the local paper. Well my husband was transferred for his job to Green Bay Wisconsin. Up until then, I probably would not have been able to point out Wisconsin on a map, let alone know what it was like to live (and garden) there. So I went to YouTube to find ANYTHING about Wisconsin and gardening in Wisconsin to see if I could keep doing my wonderful hobby in this new place I would call home. Your Vlog was kind of my bible for quite a while. It allowed to me to see a new part of the country and that I could easily garden there. You guys gave me such hope. Well, fast forward four years and I am happy to say that our move here was quite successful. We L-O-V-E Green Bay, we love Wisconsin – we can’t imagine living anywhere else. We managed to purchase our dream property out in the country and are building our new home and new garden space this summer. We just raised our first flock of baby chicks to free range on our property. And after living here, you two embody the spirit of Wisconsin. Kind, generous, no nonsense, enjoy life, living well with neighbors and nature, concise, speaks your mind, taking the best care of what God has given you. Thank you for being my first taste of Wisconsin! Quick question – what do you mulch your vegetable beds with? Years ago I remember you put grass clippings but it looked like straw on them? Thanks again Shannan Deshazer

You two are adorable! Thanks for sharing your garden with us. You did a great job sharing how to grow an affordable garden. Beautiful. Kudos Magazine

I love the wonderful energy that you two are exuding.  I am new to your site and am so happy to have found you. I wish I could have this serenity that I see in you. God bless you and keep up the great work. Ash Nav

Thank you for sharing your videos! Absolutely amazing! I am in awe of how you can maintain such a garden of such magnitude! With all of your wooden structures, have you ever had to deal with carpenter bees? They have been drilling numerous holes in my elevated garden beds. I was wondering if you have any suggestions? I grow organically and do not want to contaminate any of my vegetables. Thank you! Caitlin Haack

Hi, I am so thankful that I have found your videos​. They have helped me survive these crazy Wisconsin winters and I have been inspired for this spring in my own garden. 🙂 I would love to know if you have any of those Grape Irises available? I have been looking for them for years. I have such fond memories of them from my grandma’s garden. Thank you. Sally Caldoza

You are such lovely people Jesus must love you A lot! You make me cry For all the love you share with each other and us, Thank you so much!! Marilyn Maloch

Lynn and Richard, I love your videos. So glad I have hundreds more to watch as I can’t seem to get enough! How can we thank you for all the great information and so professionally produced videos… and especially your beautiful personalities. Speaking of personalities, that little boy was such a treat. I literally laughed out loud during his pond duties. He gave us a big bonus video ending with his thumbs-up signal right to the camera man! Your videos always leave me educated and ready for all my garden tasks (new garden)… and you always leave me with a warm smile. Hugs to you both. Sylvia Delk

Thank you for sharing your videos! Absolutely amazing! I am in awe of how you can maintain such a garden of such magnitude! Thank You! Caitlin Haack

I hope your neighbors’ love you guys as much as I love you guys! You’re awesome! Christopher E. Pineda

What you are doing is incredible!!!!. Many Blessings!!!! Hilda Candelario

Love love love your videos!!! Thank you for sharing! Near that large Japanese maple on North side (which is absolutely gorgeous!!!) I would love to see an assortment of coleus, not to compete with the tree but to add some colors. Just a neat idea! If my garden is ever half of what you guys have I will be tickled! Amanda Mendoza

Lynn, you are my “heroine”! That is clearly back breaking work! But, what I love about you most is that you seem to do it with a smile (not so easy to do, hung over a pond), an effective determination to see the desired end results. I even, found myself moving my body in an attempt to help you pull some of those boulders out of that pond. Great job, as always. Now, I had better get to my yard, so as to not feel so guilty…just watching…LOL! Evelyn Hawkins

This is like a TV miniseries! I’ve got episodes every night to watch :))))) Phillip Yorko

You guys really inspire me , lots of information and gentle and knowledgeable people ,TY for your time I’m starting my second year in our new garden , I’ve used many ur ideas and pray for great success , thank u again. Kelleena Lochhead

Sweet and funny video! Kept me grinning and chuckling the entire time. Getting to see Lynn’s personality shine was a real treat. You are both very sweet. I’m a recent subscriber; and i thank you both for all that you do! Zenda Morrison

I always enjoy watching your videos and I also am always more than happy to give you a thumbs up. B. I guess it takes all types, but the ONE thumbs down guy…oh well…never mind. Why give him or her any attention? Randy Watts

You guys are like family. I love your sessions/lessons. Thank you. I am from Long Island, New York….And in my later stage of life, I work in a very fine nursery. You simplify your presentations to make them very easy to follow, and understand. A compliment. If I can add anything to assist….please ask…….Patrick Walsh.

You both are so much fun. I love this video and all the gardening theme ideas are fantastic. Deezie

They are great gardeners and very helpful with their channel and answering questions. Thanks to Wisconsin Garden. Matthew Padilla

They offer very helpful hints and tips from product demos and reviews to tours around their garden. You can find How-to videos too! Follow Lynn into the kitchen where she prepares the freshly picked fruits and veggies into tasty dishes and snacks. I have been watching their YouTube videos for years. I like how they always support their hometown and state businesses! With gardening, there always comes some trial and error, Lynn and Richard show us in videos that they too sometimes have to move plants and relocate them when they don’t seem to flourish in a certain spot. It’s comforting how personable they are and make me feel like I am right there with them and that it is ok to get your hands dirty and experiment. Joann Descallar

The couple behind Wisconsin Garden is an absolute inspiration for this beginner gardener. Lynn and Richard are generous in sharing stunning and informative video tours of their garden, updates, tips and lessons they learn along the way, and they are always quick and gracious in answering anybody’s questions. One of my favorite accounts on YouTube. Luca P.

Love, love, love! Mary Fetty

Love ur positively, wish u prosperity and more bids to come:) live ur channel guys, u never disappointed me. Kaho Fotyfar

What a great find today! For an activity at Lasata Care Center, right down the road from where you were filming. We were searching YouTube with the residents to find something interesting to watch. Seeing that many of the residents are from Cedarburg, they wanted to see something related to their home town. They watched and thoroughly enjoyed your video. We talked about the foam in the river (as they’ve been seeing this on local news) but the best part was the wonderful tour and reminiscing that took place. Thank you for doing this and sharing your video! Margie Spitza

I just came across your channel. You two are the sweetest couple! It’s a joy watching your videos and I’m learning a lot. I just recently started getting into gardening so I’m watching a tin of informative videos and yours was one I learned a lot from. Your such a hard working lady. Keep up the good work with your awesome videos! Yaz Q

I never tire of watching your well thought-out and informative videos. I have never signed off without learning something I didn’t know before. You, two seem such a lovely couple…that’s refreshing, too! Just to mention, I like when the (CC) Close Caption is enabled, especially, when I viewing with others around, this way I don’t disturb the less enthusiastic…LOL! Thanks, again for time well spent! You’re helping me be a better Gardner…Who knew it was possible??? LOL Evelyn Hawkins

Wow! I just stumbled on this video! I LOVE your garden decorations or garden art! I’m so jealous! I wish my husband enjoyed this type of thing as much as I do. Rhonda

Hello Lynne and Rick! So ENJOY your videos and just love your personalities, too! Wish your videos were 5 hours long (each!). God bless you both. Your hard work in producing excellent videos is obvious. Thank you. Another great video update. So much wonderful information. So glad we can watch your videos multiple times and that you number them for easy reference. I love Richard’s final comment after stating he will just sit and watch things grow and saying… “Bring me lunch please!” I think we all noticed Richard shut off camera and chose not to video tape himself getting clunked on the head by Lynn. Just kidding… I see nothing but love and joy on this channel. Thank you both!!! Sylvia Delk

I always like your Garden Tours 😀 Feels like I am walking around the backyard with a friend, chatting about plants. So thank you both for sharing the experience with us ! Happy Gardening + greetings from Germany. Keksdich

Thank you so much for sharing this video. Greetings from Brazil. Pedro da Silva Rodriques

I love your videos and your enthusiasm for gardening. I had to laugh at the number of tomato plants you put in.  I plant 12 tomato plants each year which produce more than my husband and son and I can eat, plus we supply other family members and friends… Ginny Kerlin

OH my goodness! We just bought a house and are thinking of installing a pond…. I know after seeing this I won’t be planting any cat tails. You poor thing. My back was screaming just watching you. I think a pair of waders might help the next time. Betty Weinberg

Oh Lynn I don’t envy that job. We had a pond when we lived in Texas. It was never that prolific…. Lana Bisson

Great video today I learned things about trimming I did not know. Sugar Foot

They are REALLY suffering from the heat in Australia, where it’s Summer now. I’m scared of how warm it its; it’s like May. I’m pretty old and I’ve never seen a whole season out of time like this year. I think you did a great mitzvah by planting a tree or two like you did. Best wishes always and God bless you. 2listinging1

I love how you and your husband collaborate on the videos:) So awesome to have such a healthy, mutual interest.  I hope some day to share my love for growing w/ someone like you do.  Thanks for making your videos! Martha Conover

Can’t wait to get out there and get my big long bed ready to plant them, though I guess it will have to be a while since early March in KY is way too early.. Hope mine do as well as yours did.. Spring fever is about to kill me.. You guys are really an inspiration. Jeanne Marshburn

I love all your videos.. I have been a Texas Gardener for the last 20 yrs dealing with a harsher heat climate. Recently I moved to KY where the climate seems to be a little better for what I love to grow. your very inspiring. Lana Bisson

Congratulations that’s a great accomplishment 700 videos, I don’t have idea how to edit a video, but I’m going to ask for suggestion, could you change the intro to your videos making it shorter? , because most of the time I skip it to go to the good stuff hahaha, anyway it’s great. You help me to practice my English writing too. – Monica Laguna

Congratulations! I know how thankful I am for these 700 videos, I look forward to 700 more!! Shannon Moffett

Congratulations on 700! Wow! Your videos are great for the first timer, but also those of us who have been gardening for years! I learn something new almost every time I watch.  Thank you for all of the great work you do for the rest of us – Jean Polkowski

Hi Lynn and Richard, You and Richard are so creative and adventurous, I love the video where you created a Berm out of leaves and grass clippings. I would love to do that. I can only imagine how rich the soil is.  After viewing many, many videos I saw your neighbors house. That’s why you two are so interesting, because you utilize the space you have. And it’s so creative. I. E. the berm. You and Richard are very positive. I absolutely love Richards sense of humor. You both are perfect together. I look forward to the next video. 700, that’s awesome, I’m trying to locate your beginning videos. I don’t want to miss out on anything. We are looking forward in meeting you both, July 8th can’t come fast enough. – Sincerely, Debi Gerhardt

I found your berm video on YouTube the other day, and have been watching your videos constantly!! I so enjoy gardening myself, but am no where near the gardener you are! Thanks for making the world a prettier place, and I’ll do the same in southwestern PA! Warmly, Jennifer Wooley

Hello.  I just watched your video on propagating African violets and using the wick method for self water.  Your video was very interesting and informative.  Thank you as I am just starting out with plants.  I have a limited amount of space in the rest home I am in…I really am glad for your video.  Thank you. Sincerely, Zita Smith

Hi Lynn and Richard:  I just wanted to say thanks for attending the Environmentally Friendly Landscaping Techniques class at Lynden last week, and to let you know that I just checked out your website.  It’s fantastic and WOW, that’s a lot of great content. . . . you two are busy-busy!  I’ve got the site bookmarked and plan to visit it often for tips, techniques and sheer enjoyment.  Thanks again. –Andy

Hi Lynn and Rick, Thanks for all the information on how you keep your flower and garden beds looking so nice.  I would have never guessed you put that many bags of leaves and shredded mulch down every year.  Wow!!!   I thoroughly enjoy the videos you and Rick make together sharing with me and all the other viewers all your flowers and plants.  I enjoy gardening and my wife has no interest at all.   Your video’s make me feel like I have two gardening friends that get the same enjoyment I do.  I just want to say thanks. – Tom Dreas

Just watched your video on transplanting African violets and thank you very much for the great tutorial. I must say in addition to being educational, I also had to chuckle about the soil/dirt exchange with your hubby, mine would not sweep a floor either!! thanks again. – Susan

Hi Lynn, I enjoyed the tutorial on the terrarium!  Thanks for the detailed explanation. I enjoyed browsing through all of the beautiful pictures that your husband made. Thanks again! SLC

Hi there! I just wanted to say thank-you for the treasure trove of information you have so pleasantly provided for the whole world. I hear you talk about the many people that write to you from all over, and wanted you to add Kansas City to your list of fans/friends. I am a beginning gardener and a groundskeeper for a condominium complex in Overland Park, KS. and have learned so much from watching your videos. Keep up the good work. Thank-you for sharing, and may all your blooms be bright and beautiful!  – Stephen Valentine

Hi. I’M here in a little town south of Boston called Middleboro Mass. I’m just relaxing, on vaca and stumbled upon your latest youtube posting on whiteflies. I really enjoyed it. You have a wonderful healthy garden ! Thanks for posting. Have a nice day and a great summer.  Stephen

I just discovered your videos. Great. I planted an apple orchard three years ago. I am a novice. I was hoping you might help me from time to time. – Steele Cooley Jasper Arkansas

I was watching the seed video, and remembered that I wanted to send you a picture of my hoop garden. Tomatoes are going still and the lettuce and collards are happy. And I noticed we have the same dining room set including the chairs. Warm regards; Stephanie Marder

Just wanted to say Thank you love watching your channel congratulations keep them coming. – Sherry Ades

Hi Lynn. My name is Sherika And I am From Alabama. I watched your YouTube video on Colocasia Elephnat Ear plants. I love these flowers and went on a hunt for some today. Lowes did not have any available in my area, but I did see a woman on ebay selling the seeds.  My question is, will the seeds produce the flower without the bulb? I know nothing about flowers, just moved in a home and want to make my yard beautiful with these flowers. Any information you may have would be very helpful.  Thank you so much.  – Sherika Nicole

Hi there Lynn, I just watched a YouTube video that you made (I think it might be 2011). You are the only one with this video, though I have seen one internet posting like it. I was wondering if it turned out? And if it did how long did it take to become grape juice? My favorite grapes are in season now and I will be trying this really easy and no fuss method, but just wondering if you could tell me what its like on the other end of things when its complete. J Thanks for your time. Blessings, – Chesca Cox Prescott Ontario Canada

Dear Lynn, Thank you for your quick respond. I watch all of your garden videos every evening and they are just so cheerful and fun. Love them! I love gardening and when i watch your videos they just make my day. Keep up the amazing job you and hubby are doing. I don’t drive so i would have to arrange a ride to go out by you. I will call you early next week. I have a question I have a beautiful magnolia tree and I would love to propagate it but don’t know how. The tree is 5ft tall i planted it like 10yrs ago and it’s been growing real slow. I purchased some tree fertilizer spikes and hoped it would improve the growth but nothing. That following spring i did get many flowers. I found these tiny narrow cones all on the ground under the tree. I was wondering if these could be the seeds? I will bring them with me when i pick up the raspberry plants. And hopefully you can identify them for me. Like I said I am a garden beginner and have so many questions. I am so happy that you are out there and I found you to help me. Thank’s again. Sanjuanita – Janie is in English for Sanjuanita.

Hi Lynn, I watch your videos and love them. I have had perennial gardens in NC and PA. The garden I currently have I inherited from a Japanese woman who was the previous owner of my new home on Holland mountain in Sussex county in northern NC. She passed away and her garden was neglected for 4-5 years. The amount of phlox i gave away was unreal. Today I watched your video about the Japanese peony and I plan to buy some. I purchased numerous perennials from bluestone perennials in Ohio this spring. I love their packaging in coconut holders you plant in the ground, no fussing with roots. Our county does not have a garden club so i will enjoy watching your garden grow and try your tomato plant formula this May. Thank you. – Rebecca, Lake Stockholm NJ

First timer here!! Hello! What a joy you are! My friend told me to use YouTube to learn things. So I looked up how to winter my elephant ears and there you were! What a blessing you are to me. I planted three elephant ears in pots for the first time this year (Freeport, IL) and they are beautiful! Think I will send a pic for you to see.  I am going to share them with my Garden Center friends at work. Thanks so much, I am watching you instead of tv today on my day off. I work at Menards Freeport in the Garden center and you will play a big part in my education!!! Love ya for that!!! I also went to your hubby’s art gallery….WOW so pretty. So with that being said I would love a free art. Thanks for that too. I picked out DPC2394, Driftwood Bouquet. Warmest wishes to you! Your newest #1 Fan! – Patrice Dilworth

Thanks Lynn, just found you on YouTube. Nice idea about the powdered milk for blossom end rot. I do hydroponic, basic Kratky type but still need to play in the dirt. I have suffered with the end rot, (the tomatoes, not myself) and sprayed on the toms tablet but I thing I like the idea of the milk powder better because with the tums you have to experience the rot before the cure, milk powder amends the soil before the rot has a chance to form…Thanks, have subscribed.. – Nige

Hello Lynn, I have been watching your videos on gardening. I love them! I love watching your garden tours and seeing that you also have plants that come up here and there or sometimes don’t make it through the winter. I live in northern WI so I have a short growing season. I love being outside listening to the birds and working in my gardens. I have been gardening for about 26 years, started with a bucket of hostas from a neighbor, and I was hooked. I live in the city with a double lot, very little grass, every year more of it goes for gardens. My next project is a dry river bed. Keep those great videos coming!!! – Nancy Hinz

Hello again. I was laughing my head off about the football incident. How funny! I just wanted to say I watched so many of your videos last night. I fell asleep enjoying each and everyone of them. I like the one using the 2 liter bottle to make a terrarium. I bought a container from the nursery for half price which was $45.00. It already had two avocados on it. He has lots of fruit trees in the back yard. He also has lots of martin bird houses too. He is a country boy from Louisiana. I’m from Killeen- Fort Hood, Texas originally. Anyway, your videos are awesome. I plan on camping out with my laptop again tonight to watch more. I even focused on the art work from your husband. I will go back and review those again. I am so happy to have found your website and your YouTube channel. Have a great week!  Excuse any errors. I’m actually taking a break from clearing out my closets and dresser drawers of things that I never wear or can’t wear. I have too many unnecessary items that should be given to those that can use them.  Okay, take care. – Natalie

I am from Karachi Pakistan, One day before yesterday i saw your on garden programme on YouTube. Your plants stem is very thick and healthy and leaves were very good. So please advice me how to grow them, Thank you very much. Best Regards, – Muhammad Ashfaq

Lynn – Love watching your YouTube videos so much. Our climate is different here in the Sierras, but many of your food drying video are so wonderful to watch. And your husband makes me laugh he is so cool. – Beth California in the CA Sierra foothills

Lynn & Richard, Your videos have inspired me more than you’ll ever know….I discovered your videos about two years ago. They were so calming watching two people talk and work in their garden. After about a year of watching, I started to feel peace creep back into my life. My yard with all of its lush, and at this point, overgrown, landscaping was no longer viewed as a burden but as a haven to make new memories…But I’m happy once again. It’s your videos. It truly is. You both remind me that there are good people in this world. And a garden is an adventure that I want to have. Thank you for sharing yourselves and your gardening adventures with me. I eagerly await every new video and watch older ones often. If you’ve ever wondered if anyone has been touched by your videos…yes they have. And it is me. I’m the one you were meant to reach. Meeting you both is on my bucket list. Hoping the blessing you’ve given to me is returned to you tenfold. – Heather Peters Findlay, OH

Thank you for your advice.  I bought the same package of Zinnias, and I am very exciting counting the days to  be outside and start working in my garden.  I grew up in Panama city, Panama, So I  still have a lot to learn about perennial plants.  I would love to see your garden and meet both of you. I will see you soon Thanks, Mirna

Dear Lynn, I recently came upon your videos on YouTube….Thank you so much for creating them! Thank you so much! – Megan

Hi, Lynn! Thanks for posting that video about elephant ears. I will now soak mine overnight and plant it tomorrow here in our Tucson yard. The temperatures have been in the 70s. I have a nice cool corner in the shade for them. My mom was born and raised in Superior, WI. She used to tell us California kids all the stories about the snow, the wind and ice covered lakes. To us, it was like she was from a different world! Visiting her parents in the summer, Wisconsin was one of the most beautiful places I’d ever seen. Take care, – Mary Partelow

Lynn and Rick, I love your videos on YouTube!  I always learn something as I am new to outdoor gardening. Keep up the great work and thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge. Best regards, – Marion

Dear Lynn & Richard- I just watched the video and I must say that while we are not surprised that you love the Root Assassin we are profoundly grateful for your terrific and thorough video and sincere comments. Keep in touch. Once again, thanks.- Josh Kalter

Dear Lynn. I have been watching a lot of your videos and fortunately, learned a great deal.  Thanks to you and Richard for allowing us to come into your sensational garden. Please forgive me if any writing mistakes occur, I am fFrench Canadien but my grand father was born in the U.S.A.  He came to Canada with his father but his siblings lived in Jericho Vermont, and Massachusett. Best regards, – Lucie Deslieres

I watched video number ninety yesterday when you had some large trees cut down . WHAT a big transformation your lot has gone through YOU must be very proud LOOKS GREAT – Dot Thomas

Thanks for sharing. I love the way your husband and you share the information. I can tell your husband really cares about you and wishes to make this educational video perfect and informative. He keeps asking questions, adding some information and even made conclusion in the right time, that really can consolidate and impress our knowledge of growing nice tomato with your secret method. I like the way you and your husband talks which is so natural, relaxing, enjoyable, and the most important is CARING and INTERACTING. (Sorry to have some comment almost a year ago saying that is irritating. I totally disagree that type of comment and this type of comment is definitely irritating)Beautiful couple Lynn and Richard, thank you so much for your sharing and effort again. – RoseGreenTea

I had so much fun watching, my mom use to put up Jam just like you.    You two really make me smile hearing the two of you joke around. – Mark Sears

I was waiting for this video. I am living vicariously through your videos lol. It is so hot here in California that I don’t feel like going outside at all. The most I do is water my plants. By the time I come inside I am all sweaty, gross and need a shower. Currently I hand water everything. I am thinking of investing in watering system so I am not uncomfortable on the hot California summer days. As always your garden is amazing and beautiful. Everything is looking wonderful. My daughter had a question about your credits. She wants to know why you have a picture of Lynn when she was a child. I figured I would ask the question for her since she always watches “my gardening videos”, as she calls them, with me. – JulV Wildcat

So informative. Thank you Lynn and Richard for sharing your garden experiences. I always get so much from your videos. – Ravenhairone

Thank you for sharing your beautifull garden with us. I always look forward to your videos and after watching them i run into my own garden to do some more work or just enjoy it, its looking beautifull this year.lady from Quebec. – Johanne Black

Hi. I grew EE for the first time this year and they came out great ! Can’t thank you enough for this vid and feedback. I would love to share photos of them with you, if you’d like. – thanks again for your help. ~ blessings !- Diana Di

Love your garden. It is amazing. Congratulations. I am very inspired by your videos. Mariachi Chic

Hi Lynn & Richard. It’s Bob from philosophy class. Great garden tour. Thanks! Here’s a favorite poem of mine from Louis Aragon’s Paris Peasant (paraphrased). Your viewers might like too: “Those who have spent their lives traveling, Those who have encountered a multitude of climates, Those whose beards have been singed by the South, Whose hair has frozen stiff in the North, Whose skin is compounded of all suns and winds, The servants of smoke, The sons of tornado, Their footsteps forecasting earthquakes, When at the end of their journeys they return, A parrot perched on their shoulder, Still cling to one desire: To have a garden.” – Bob Jebavy

Hi, My wife T and I just finished watching the 3rd installment for July 2016, the tour was unbelievable, you both have put so much time and thought into every inch of your garden. T, says God points and you dream of new looks for each area. And there are more invasive plants , that still have to be removed, the work continues. You inspire everyone who watches, it takes work sweat and time, but, look what you get when you finish. Thanks for sharing, we’ll be watching and enjoying. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

The sheer size of your property is staggering, it’s huge, we are always taken back, by the amount of effort, and work it must take just to maintain, the whole space my wife T says God gave you both green thumbs and joyous hearts, that never give up. We loved the tour, we know there is lots more work to be done , but, what a joy to see the fruits of your labor. Thanks for sharing, waiting for #3, be well. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

I love your ‘dandelion’ hair style! And I so appreciate your very instructive tips about gardening. Have learned so much. Thank you. –ScreeminMeeme

I so admire your dedication and “stick-to-a-tiveness.”  Can’t wait to see it at bloom time!!! – Rose Duke

I really enjoyed looking around your garden at all your specials accents. I also love how you and your husband work and play together in it*** I am a new subscriber and have enjoyed all your videos – Deezie

You 2 are the hardest working retired people I know. All your hard work sure shows, it looks great! Everything looks spectacular! Your garlic is fantastic, can’t wait to see the heads when you harvest. – Snookie65

Oh WOW, I would happily dine under your raspberry bushes. That is a jungle that us Aussies would love in our garden. I mean, growing raspberry is finicky here. You have to baby it and if it drops dead on you, too bad. Try again LOL. – Wildcook (Mary)

I wish I could forget the Forget Me Not- we bought one plant 2 years ago and it took over a 12x4ft flower bed filled with Lava Rock and in the shade- not easy growing conditions. I loved them in the spring, but had to rip them out after they turned brown- I just couldn’t handle the look of them. Good news is they came out super easy. Now I need to find some new plants to put in the shade garden for next year- your garden tours give me so many ideas- thanks! – JByrd

We just finished watching your July Garden Tour 707, the garden is just great, My wife T, says it gets better every year. You both put in so much time and love, to everything you do, we’ll waiting for 2 and 3 of your tour. Thank you for sharing, hope your 4th was enjoyable, get some rest more work to come. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

I like the idea of having two kneeling pads so you can stay on one and move the next one ahead! Much easier than getting up to moving the pad! Wish I lived closer to you! I’d be right there getting some raspberry bushes! I don’t think it would be worth the drive from Philadelphia PA. It’s so nice you two have a hobby (full time job!!) that you both enjoy. – Susan Mandeville

I can’t imagine how sore you two must be. My back hurts just watching!! It will look wonderful when you get it planted up. I can’t wait to see. – Amy G’Schwind

You guys are awesome! I really enjoy watching your gardening adventures. Thanks for sharing. – Travis Ward

Stumbled upon your channel and so glad I did! I love gardening but not sure if am any good … but I love it, so who cares. I love to move and experiment and add and give away plants from my garden. I can’t wait to continue through your videos! Great idea on the umbrella! – Heather Jewell

Hi, Lynn My wife says God has blessed your relentless little heart, you going after those raspberry and thistle bushes, we didn’t know there was a path until you cleared some of the bushes. Thanks for sharing, get some rest you deserve it. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

My husband wanted me to ask you what kind of Cannon Power Shot Series camera was it?  There are lots of them but we couldn’t figure out which one you had.  What model number was it?  Also, can you see what you’re video taping when in the sunlight?  You can’t with ours and it makes it hard to tell what your recording.  Looking for another camera so this info would help.  Congrats on your videos.  It’s so nice you get to do it together. – Fay Favored1

Thank you for sharing…I live in Illinois, and most of my garden friends ( southern area) have earlier gardens..So happy to find you..Thanks !! – Larieta Fort

I Live in Milwaukee. Your garden is beautiful. The peonies are so full of bloom. I have three peonies bushes that hardly bloom this year. When there is not much bloom do you think I should divide them. I read that they never need divided, I know most plants need divided when they don’t have much bloom. They all are ten or fifteen years old. – Norma Jones

I’d like to give you more than one thumb up! I love your garden accents! The red archway , the Tree Peonies, and just everything! I can’t wait to see what next you’ll paint! One thing I love is a moss garden. I heard that if you put buttermilk in a blender with moss , the use a brush spread the moss around. Not sure I want to put moss in my expensive VitaMix though! – Nina Nina

Thank You and Rich for the fun vids this last year….So glad to pass on what i know about gardening…remember my “roots” are there in farm country (Wisconsin)…Happy that i could help in some small way…and hope we hear some Christmas songs sung by Skye maybe this holiday season…Dad could surely record a vid for us to see and hear…have a list for him if he is interested in performing for us! – SuperWoodyBoy

I really enjoyed your video I called dirt and soil by either name intermittently – Angela Schans

Wonderful video, thank you! When I spread leaves over my garden patch the 15mph winds blow them back onto the grass ! Don’t you have that problem ? – Rosemary McGrenera

Thank you for your response! I will be adding leaves to my garden beds this year! 🙂 Please don’t take this the wrong way but both of you are like grandparents to me even though you’re really too young. I’m 22 and have not had a relationship with my grandparents since they all live in Ukraine so every time I watch your videos I think how cool it would be to have grandparents like you. Love you and your videos. Keep up the great work! – Flourish Ever After

Good videos I think you all make veg gardeners look at growing some plants for beauty and weed control and soil conditioning. it did me. – e Buzz

Your videos are amazing – they are the BEST!! – Nancy Ewell

OMG…That looks so delicious!  If I give you my address, could you send me a jar 🙂 LOL.  I guess I am just going to have to try to make it myself.  Lynn, You are really good at giving directions! – Hancock Homestead & Gardens

Really nice garden. – curlycurly004u

Beautiful Garden!… – 15sugarfoot

You’ve inspired me. I don’t have any bushes with dieback so, I’m off to the discount isles to find a Charley Brown tree who needs a friend. – Nananel

I went out and deadheaded my peonies today.  Thanks for the information. They look much better.  Thanks again. – Judy Homesteader

This was very enjoyable!!  you two are characters.  I liked the matching yellow sweatshirts in the beginning too – Rachaelkoger

Cute video you two!  i am currently plagued with poison ivy and not sure what to do.  Thanks for making my day a little brighter! – Campingfool59

I enjoy your videos.  Since I’m getting more into perennial flowers now you teach me a lot.  I’m glad this vid was less that a half hour long.  When they are too long I find it hard to set aside the time to watch so I miss some of them, darn it. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. – Sandra Cerino

Thank you for sharing this information.  My 19 year old has just started to garden, she’s planted strawberries, herbs, and lemons.  She wants to do more and I hope the animals don’t spoil it for her if they start eating on it.  You don’t get many 19 years already wanting to have a garden.  We will use your wise advise.  When is the best time to add the netting?  She’s just now starting to see some strawberries grow. – Regina Woods

I agree you can’t get enough plants. Enjoyed your new addition to your plant collection. – Krishna Islam

Keep up those very entertaining &info. Vids. And Merry Christmas -Happy New year-Go Pack .- Richard Bushy

Beautiful gardens, even at the end;-) I am building my yard very similar to yours on the other side of Lake Michigan in zone 5-b, but I have a problem…BINDWEED, been pulling it for years, used a orange oil – vinegar spray, sheet mulched this spring with thick cardboard, new raised beds and 4″ of wood chips…STILL BINDWEED…Help me please;-) – Scott Voigt

Super video – I wish our whole world would try to learn more about each other and become more accepting of each others – likenesses as well as differences. I had thought you both were teachers – as was I – for 42 years in the same public school as a speech/language pathologist. Thanks so much for sharing what you learned – the other Lynn! – Pprrhh102

You guys are really brave OMG and also you to young guys look very healthy. – RandomPerson1024

Enjoyed your video on planting the bulbs from the cartons.  So, how did they turn out in the spring?  Is there a site I can go to, to see them?  Thanks, Susan from Alabama. – Bobbie Curry

Well I think your awesome and hope you keep at it. God knows you arent doing anything wrong playing in the dirt 🙂 grow the best, feel great! Cheers! – Dustin Oneill

One of our Wisconsin Garden viewers, Mamie Brown left a question this morning. “I LOVE your videos. This is not a gardening question, and I hope I’m not overstepping by asking, but can Lynn share some diet tips how she stays so fit and trim….”

I’d like to answer your complimentary question about my amazing wife.

First, I tease Lynn all of the time.  Partly because I love her dearly, keeping her off guard, guessing, and on her toes encouraging her beautiful spirit and smile to laugh constantly.

Secondly, I chase her around the house and every place we go together all of the time without mercy.  P.S. She loves it and sometimes she actually lets me catch her.  And as some men admit, it’s the woman who really controls every aspect of a life of love and lifelong friendship.  I believe every woman needs to be treated like a queen with constant love and respect they truly deserve.

Thirdly, we encourage each other to work out, in the garden as opposed to a gym, bending, squatting, lifting, dragging and moving tons of mulch, top soil and compost side-by-side.  And as she has written about in her first two of 3 memoirs, from dawn to dusk she has raised 3 children and a husband (title of her 3rd Memoir) while teaching K-3 full-time, preparing meals and unconditionally taking care of all of us, all of the time.  She rarely ever had time to be ill or feel un-needed.

She is very disciplined, most of the time, eating proportionate meals in spite of me teasing her that she eats like a bird.  After nearly 48 years of marriage she looks amazingly beautiful and I make sure to let her know how I feel about her beauty every day.  More importantly, she truly has the soul of an angel and is one of the most selfless and giving person I have ever met.  I’m proud she allows me to be her soul-mate. To think that just 4 years ago she reluctantly didn’t want me to film her planting her first tomato plant in the garden. Her reply “Who would want to see me planting a tomato?”

Seeing how effective she was as a classroom teacher, I knew she would touch the heart of those who see her as being a real person talking from the heart, no script, no ulterior agenda, as someone always willing to share what she does even while dirty and sweaty.  People now recognize her when we go out together.  During the filming of this video, a couple stopped by the Ozaukee MG booth and got all excited to see her.  Their initial comment was cute, “You look much taller than you do on YouTube.”  They expressed how much they enjoyed her videos and wanted her autograph.  Ah the life of living with a “Super Star.”  How fortunate I am to play in her world.

I guess it’s not really not so much about dieting compared to living a fairly normal but active lifestyle, having a loving family, friends, teaching, and of course lots of loving teasing.  Perhaps DNA plays a role but being able to love the body you’re in has little to do about being skinny.  I have yet to meet a woman who isn’t beautiful.  God doesn’t make mistakes.  The physical body is just a temporary shell we inhabit and who’s to say which shell is more perfect to aspire or model?

The happiest people I know enjoy who and what they are.  You have to understand I live with the sassiest woman on Earth, and each time I tease her, she teases me back tenfold.  We love being together and support whatever the other wants out of life.  We willingly chose to be inseparable. P.S. Lynn loves Sanders dark chocolate sea salt caramels but only eats one while watching a movie after a hard day’s work in the garden.  How cool is that.

Now Lynn’s simple answer to your question would have probably been very modest and brief, “I don’t diet, and I just eat proportionately and work out in the garden every day.”  While that may be on point, there’s so much more to this amazing woman.  Perhaps you can see why I love her dearly.  She is amazing to watch, observe and to serve.  I do my best to keep her happy and sassy.

Forgive my brief dissertation on Loving my wife and best friend.  Hope that gives you a clearer glimpse into the amazing life of living with Lynn – Richard

When I grow up I want to be just like you a gardener with a beautiful yard full of plants.  Joelyssa M.

I’ve been out of town on a research trip, so I haven’t had the opportunity to say…Congratulations on 600+ Wisconsin Garden Videos.  One day during a cold, snowy December Ohio winter, I was searching the best ways to propagate an African violet.  Sure enough I came across Wisconsin Garden.  From then on you had Sarah and I hooked!  We love your “old school” knowledge passed down from your family, and your ever growing techniques from your research…its a great blend.  Your humor along the way, your positive approach always brings a smile to my face.  There have been times when I’m in the worst moods, and you and Rick to a great job of pulling me out of the doldrums.  Many thanks for all you do and share.  You have made a difference.  You have been able to combine two loves of gardening and teaching and brought it to the world.  What an awesome thing!  God bless!…Scott Miller

I thoroughly enjoy this video Richard & Lynn and CONGRATS on your 600th videos!! Your videos are captivating, inspiring, educational, motivating, and just sweet and lovely. There are days that I am not feeling well, I click on your videos and I get motivated to get in my garden. And, before you know it, I am outside in my garden getting the healing

I need and get well. I look forward to watching more of your videos in the future. Love you guys!! 🙂 W. C.

Congratulations also from Germany. I enjoy every minute with you in your great videos. R. Akelei

California is having a severe drought right now, I have water restrictions in place where I live in the Bay Area….My grass has all died out. I just have my Agave, Aloes, cacti and succulents….but they add a lot of color as well……in fact

Californians are having their lawns ripped out and replaced with drought tolerant landscapes….I envy your lush gardens!! J. Descallar

Cute video you two! i am currently plagued with poison ivy and not sure what to do. Thanks for making my day a little brighter! C. F.

Thanks for the tips as I live in the north east Scotland near the sea we have different climate but weeds travel just the same so i will try your organic weed killer tomorrow. J.S. Johnston

Great stuff! I’ve been taking a lot of video around my garden pond but have been too lazy to upload it. You’ve motivated me to share! J.B. Great ideas! I look forward to seeing how the two techniques compare. TX in UK

Your garden is so beautiful! I am so glad I found you. I had my first garden last year and have a lot to learn. Best discovery ever :). D. Caldwell

Beautiful garden ! I love watching your garden tour videos. Hope we could visit Wisconsin one day to see it in person. Anna C.

Beautiful garden! I love watching your garden tour videos. Hope we could visit Wisconsin one day to see it in person. S. Cerino

Thank you so much. We are new homeowners in Madison by Lake Mendota. Eager to garden both flower and edibles. I stopped watching to go pull some Garlic Mustard in its second year. Naively thinking what a pretty flower it was. M. Helen

Such a beautiful garden. It’s such an extension of you and Richard. Quite reflective of your wonderful personalities! How do you keep up with it? H. Peters

In Nashville, Tennessee strawberries are in season now (almost over here). Other berries, peaches and tomatoes coming in the next few weeks – yeah!! I plan to venture out some this year (my second one canning) and try tomatoes in different ways other than just canning plain and dehydrating them. Your gardening videos are getting me all excited. Keep them coming! D. Cans

So much to look at! Thanks for posting. U. G.

Beautiful garden! I would spend my entire day there. I’ll have to look for a few peony trees now. I’m inspired. Frugal C.

I’m going to have to try some plants I’ve never done before, like the Kale and eggplant and others. My daughter got me started on Okra late year for the first time. I love you both. Nina N.

I just love watching you garden. I have goldfish and watching them swim is so much fun! C. Bennett

A beautiful place to visit. If I’m every in Wisconsin I’d love to. What happens to the fountains during your winters? I’m sure they are drained until spring comes again. C. Dixon

You’re so dear and fun to watch because you seem so benevolent with your little seeds. Very inspiring! Thank you. Love the diatomaceous earth usage too! H. S.

You’re so dear and fun to watch because you seem so benevolent with your little seeds. Very inspiring! Thank you. Love the diatomaceous earth usage too! J. Lee

Very interesting stuff! The hubby and I will be looking into it. Thanks for all the helpful videos. M. Eutsler

What a beautiful way to honor your teachers memory. I know she very proud of you as a teacher and the amazing woman you are. This video warmed my heart. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Always a joy to see you both. Dee & Kevin

You guys have the most fun trimming those branches;) Evelyn C.

What a nice way to honor your teacher! That was a nice bag you were using for collecting the weeds and debris as you worked. H. Chris

WOW how great is that!….and what a beautiful home! S. Woody

Oh thank you!! That makes sense!!!! I am going “replant” them then. My woodland area is leave mulch, it’s way different then my front yard slopes… I still also learning about how the sun behaves…. areas I think its full sun is actually part shade back of the HOUSE shadow!! A. R.

Thank you so much! I will try this. 🙂 E. Kurtak

Hi, Lynn and Richard! I live in Southern New Hampshire and my rhubarb is sending out flowers. I bought the roots from Home Depot last year just for fun and was surprised to see it flowering this year. Actually, even though I have some knowledge of plants, I didn’t know mine was going to seed until you mentioned yours in your videos. I have seen many places to cut it off for a good stalk harvest, but since I am not too serious about a good harvest, I will let it flower out of curiosity. Thanks for all of your videos! P. J. M.

Hi Lynn and Richard. We are here in Calgary Alberta Canada. Our Rhubarb just started growing but already has started to produce seed heads… I have a funny feeling it has to do with the growing season. Last year our fruiting trees, just like yours, did not produce flowers. Funny how we could live so far away but the plants are still growing the same! Everything looks so beautiful in your garden! Thank you for all your videos. M. Barciak

Thank you for sharing this information. My 19 year old has just started to garden. She’s planted strawberries, herbs, and lemons. She wants to do more and I hope the animals don’t spoil it for her if they start eating on it. You don’t get many 19 years already wanting to have a garden. We will use your wise advice… R. Woods

Love your videos love both of you also. E. Sullivan

Lovely video and your garden looks beautiful! I have just subscribed to your channel and Liked your video… W. S.

I love to watch your garden shows and as our winter is now approaching it is especially nice to see your garden starting to bloom… M. Acton

I always enjoy tours of your garden. Glad I am subscribed to your channel…I know you write books as well, so perhaps a recommendation on one of those as well. Thank you, for your time and talent. T. Eitzen

It is always a pleasure to be part of your WI garden family, very grateful for all your wonderful videos. May God bless your time and your efforts! K. Fotyfar

I just love Spring! Your yard looks fantastic. My Japanese Peonies are coming up, nowhere as big and full as yours. I only planted them last year and they were tiny plants. I have fingers crossed that they bloom. Love them! I think of you both every time I look at them. S. K.

Yalls garden rivals- the gardens of Europe, just perfect. S. B.

Hi Lynn. Your yard looks gorgeous! Happy Gardening. L. G.

Great tips…will be giving it a try this season. Thank you E. H.

This has been very helpful. I just bought two bulbs today because I really love the elephant ears. Had some years ago but did not realize I needed to lift up in winter…Thanks to you, I know no how. I expect I will have many babies for years to come! E. Hawkins Your gardens are beautiful so far! S. C.

Your gardens are beautiful.. Thanks for the tour. J. H.

Woo hoo another episode 😉 u made my day 😉 A. R.

I just subscribed to your blog….I’m so enjoying watching and learning. You said the lumber is copper treated…I’ve never heard of that. Is it pine or cedar? Of course! CCA.

Lol. I had no idea the C stood for copper. I did think it was a no-no for gardening…especially organic. This is why I appreciate people like you to keep the information flowing. I also bought the ingredients for your tomato planting mixture. Thank you again. D. Creager

I love the color of that plant . Please let us know the name if you are able to find it . I as well will try to I.D. it and will post on here. would love to have one . Great job on the videos BTW. E. F.

Hi Lynn, I’m from IL, and that is a beautiful Coleus plant you have there, and the reason I watched your video is because I want to start growing some Coleus plants for the first time. so thank you for this info. M. R. K. You all are great. Thanks for all the information you give out! N. N.

Thank you for this video. I wondering if I could leave the Mason bee eggs outside over winter and cover the front with 1/2 ” hardware wire to keep the birds from eating the larva? The winters here only get down to around 28 degrees here in SE Texas. T. Green Very educational! P. B.

That was nice. It really comes across that you are excited about your little gals getting out and making your home their home. It will be bee (get it?) nice to see your updates as they move outdoors and get to working! Thanks a lot. H. C. H.

I just wanted to say thank you for this great video. This is the first year I have done seeds in my home and i wasn’t sure if my plants were becoming to leggy but mine look similar to yours. This was a great time to do the update. Thanks so much. T. Kelly

Love your video. D. R. I WATCHED ALOT OF VIDEOS ON TRANSPLATING TO DIRT, YOURS IS THE BEST….you have me as a watcher for sure,,,,,,gave answers all the others did not….thank you so much… Just love your little Gourd people, please do more, would love to see you do turtle one, or how you do it….I collect turtles, ones that make me smile, and yours really made me smile……just so clever…… C. Corrieri

Hello Dear Lynn….I did some cutting on last years growth on my perennials yesterday…oh my, and went to our local nursery Delphinium, Foxglove & hollyhocks..and Gaura…I’m so bad…need to move some iris today…Hugs, Debra in Ma..zone 5. D.R.

One of the best explanations I have come across. Thank you for detailing out some very important strategies of working on this species. The only video where somebody has taken the time to produce very informative content. I shall take these methods back to me home on my planet. Cheers my friend. Love and happiness. W. T.

Very amazing useful idea to recycle and convenient, thanks…Cool guys, very inspiring, love it when u get us to the mood of this beautiful season. Thank u! K. F.

You are very good at explaining things. I keep hearing a bird in the background……….possibly a cockatiel? You love plants and birds. They both bring much joy and interest to life, don’t they? 🙂 U. S.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge! W. Judy

I watched you plant peony seeds, I followed your video and so I did the same thing…I live in Canada and the weather has been 60 degrees and hopefully better this weekend. I enjoy your videos. L. W.

Help! I am a very beginner gardener, I didn’t remove last year veggie scraps or wood chips. We have recently tilled them into our garden.. is all hope lost?…Thank you for the advise and Ray of hope! I was hoping the beginning of my gardening days weren’t over already. LOL S. D.

Very informative. Thanks for the video. D. Downunder Thanks so much for the information. Now I know what is building the “mud” tubes on the mason used to build my home. Also nice to know I don’t need to be concerned about being bit. N. W.

Love this! So once again you’ve peaked my curiosity. I just watched a few more videos on this and I would love to try it! Can I ask where you got the houses and the bees? Also, would you leave these out all winter or harvest the cocoons and store them in the fall? 🙂 C. A.

Hi I have only looked at a couple of your videos they are very good. I live in Cairns Australia which if you Google Cairns Australia we are on the Great Barrier Reef. My climate is very tropical. I look forward to viewing more of your videos F. Inglus

Hi, my brother name is Matthew. Me and him LOVE your videos. J. M.

Above video really helped me. Fortunately I was trying to breed mushrooms in Indonesia. In Jokjakarta central Java.

Thanks tutorial. C. Pras Just a new sub to your channel and am enjoying it very much, you give me such great ideas. From Wisconsin too. S. Woyczik

Yea! Spring is there! Always love your videos. F. G.

Lynn, I am so surprised to see you planted Burrows tail outside and overwintered it in your Northern winters!!!! WOW! I love burrows tail and did not think in my zone 5b S E Iowa area it could take our winters! You have really impressed me with that. I will have to buy some to plant outside. If I can find it. Thanks to you and Richard for feeding our gardening souls through winter! 🙂 S. Poole

Dear Lynn and Richard thank you so much for the Liatris seeds you sent me got them today they will look so pretty in my area. M. A.

Thank you so much for sharing — I guess I never thought you could do that — but it IS important! Thanks for sharing the ‘how-to’….Lynn. P. P.

Pallets off bagged soil? Man, you are a serious gardener! I like that, very much! I am still saving for my retirement, So clean bags of soil and soilless media are out of my budget. I am forced to go to the Green Bay Yard Waste and pick up compost from their piles and mix my own soil. They’re pretty good about seasoning it, bringing their pile to temperature, though. It takes an extra year to build a nice soil for food plants, but it is all part of the gardening journey. Nice video. Q. E.

Great! I should send this to some friends-LOL S. Shah We’ve got an awesome review by our friends from Wisconsin Garden. R. A. S.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We have exceeded the previous snow limits here in Boston, Ma and I missed the Flower show here in Massachusetts plus we are getting more snow this weekend so this made my evening as I sat sipping tea. V. Solo

These videos give me so much good insight for my garden. I hope we continue to see more. Thank you Lynn and Richard!! O. S.

Can’t help it I keep watching it over and over: Amazing feeling of excitement knowing spring is just around the corner, your video is amazing as well helping us to be in the mood:) thanks guys! K. F.

If you want to come see my channel I’m 13 and if you don’t want to you don’t have too. P. E.

Great video. Good job, Logan. It’s so great for kids to have time with grandparents. We are looking forward to see how his plants progress. S. M.

Great project to do with the kiddies……Logan is a winner! Hope his plants germinate! S. Mandeville

This is so cool sharing one of your passions with Logan. The hands on projects like this will be etched in his memory of this moment like you two have with your dad Lynn and Rick with his grandparents. The relationship you two have with your grandson is wonderful to see. 🙂 W. M.

I agree you can’t get enough plants. Enjoyed your new addition to your plant collection. K. I.

I just subscribed as I found your channel by looking at your tomato planting secrets then looked at your container garden video and I find them all quite fascinating that I seen as my son and I live in a apartment complex growing outdoor stuff on our patio, F. M. I’ve been looking for this recipe for so long. Thanks Lynn! I. F.

So much info. Really appreciate it all. Have plenty of banana peels, but don’t drink coffee. We use tea bags though. I’ve been saving my containers and started my seedlings from the advice you gave last year. The TP rolls really work. I used the containers like you suggested, but mine were from taco salads and pastry. Still watching … thanks. F. O.

Exactly what i was looking for. 🙂 K. Hammer

Heyyy you guys are so cool.. hey do ya still have some leaf that I can get? J. Lee

Love your videos we have no snow in England where I live in Wiltshire so far , but winter is not over yet isn’t it , love your videos. S. Fryer

Nice garden surprise Lynn & Rick! I hear you on some garden products. I have been whining about my cheap garden hose, now, when I am done watering. I am saturated. Investing in a good product is a great idea. W. H.

You guys are awesome! How do we go about getting one signed?! J. Miller

Lynn where did you get those heavy duty extra tall tomato cages….very nice! S. W.

Those look really durable. I’ll be buying my first set of equipment this year and I definitely will go the durable route verses cheap. Just last year I had bought a cheap rake and it the handle broke apart from the rake within minutes. Love the idea of the apron too.. I’m always looking for stuff or the kids pick it up when I have my back turned. R. Koger

Fantastic bunch of garden tools! I know you guys will give them all a true workout. I’m excited to hear a review on the handheld sprinklers. I can’t tell you how many we have purchased over the years. If we are lucky they make it through 1 season. I will go check out their site. Love that they are from WI too! Snookie

Love the turtle bobble head. K. Aragon

I love your guy’s informative shows, and your husband’s sense of humor! I’m in NW Wisconsin near Eau Claire. Going to start our first gardening experience this year at our new home. I’m studying up all I can during winter right now. I haven’t seen anything in your video’s on hydrangea, do you happen to have any at all? Let me know if you do. Rachel Rick is always entertaining! C. Dahl

Lynn & Richard, I started watching your videos about a year ago and really enjoy them… D. G.

On this cold night, I’ve enjoyed catching up with you guys. The busyness of life has kept me away, but now I’m thinking about what spring may bring. God bless you both. I must check out your website too. S. M.

Loved your video….. thank you for all your tips. A. Maya Awesome… I enjoy your channel. R. McKinnis

Is there anything the 2 of you don’t do? The creative mind can do anything! We would love to come to your doodle class, but too far : Sarah M.

Cute video! Thanks for the posting. C. Christenson

Enjoyed your video! P. David You guys are so good people. Good luck everywhere. C. Mire

Great Video, Thanks! After seeing this, and one of your other efforts, I have started putting vermiculite in the water with my avocado seeds. B. Lewis

Lynn your garden is so beautiful, the greenery and daisy ,thank you for share your paradise with us. J. Gonzalez

This is one of my favorite episodes. I love your little spirit dolls. They are very unique individuals. Would you mind if I were to try making my own spirit dolls in the future? I am wanting to try growing some gourds this coming summer and now have an idea of what I would like to do with them -besides birdhouses. Kim H.

Thank you for sharing all the wonderful info on gardening. Evelyn C. My wife like to see your videos for growing green and flower. Thank for the videos. G, Bomba

I live in the Netherlands and am a first time gardener. I had a terrible tomato crop this year due to rain. I will have to cover them with plastic next year. Could you burn the dead tomato plants and use the ash for plant food? What did you do with your green tomatoes? Fry them? Make chutney? L. Casey

Such adorable art projects. I was thinking wow that’s a lot of feathers from your Cockatiel….. So cute you collected & saved her feather over the years……. E. C.

Amazing Forensic study of your garden, I have wanted so much to hear other gardeners winter thoughts. I think winter scapes are fascinating and glad to hear you leave some plants uncut and smart reasons behind that. No other garden Youtube show talk much about tis very important information. i live in Vancouver area so called lotus land ,we use mulch here too for soil improvement and have been out shopping plants perfect time of year to get 70%off T. Sargeant

Oh I wish I could be there right now . Beautiful snow. We are 35C hot in Sydney now . Love your garden and Wisconsin since watching your bids. A. C.

Hello my gardening friends, Lynn and Rick. Just want to tell you how wonderful it is to still see and hear your wonderful videos. Can’t wait till spring when we can once again enjoy Gods beauty and creation as we once again plant and grow. You are an inspiration to me. Thanks and happy New Year. H. Kesler

This was one of your best videos, please show us how you end up trimming your fruit & berries. Again loved every minute of this one, I also live in WI, so I learn a lot from you! M. Two Great paper pot making video. Thanks for sharing. Mr. G. P.

I live in North-West Ohio and our neighborhood is under attack with rabbits…I have fought them for 5 years now but am now doing raised beds with protective wire mesh on the bottom of our boxes. Hope that helps me next growing season. Thanks for your videos. A. T.

Your videos helped me a lot this year, I’m thankful that you provide us with your knowledge, I wish you and all your love ones a very merry Christmas! God bless you all! F. Blanquita

I know this is totally off topic… but… Richard, what camera do you use to video all of these cool YT segments with Lynn? could you recommend a cheap good simple camera? (I’m nearly 70 and on Social Insecurity) Could you two do a video on cameras and shooting tips? How did you get so many viewers and those great angles? J. Peck

Enjoy the interaction between you two. More indoor video please. You still have any indoor avocado plants? E. C. I like you guys. You are fun to watch. Thank you! D. Orman

Love this post. Thanks for taking some to kindly educate so many! Ag Literacy Peoria County

How appropriate, a year ago I was looking for videos on how to propagate African violets, and “met” you and Rick. Now I need to divide some of my African violets a year later, and this video appears. Wisconsin Garden rocks!… We have the same watering can! I bought mine about 25 years ago from Kmart for some of my first house plants I had in my bedroom. That is when Kmart ruled the roost. How things change over time. S. M.

Hello. Florida here…grew Zinnias from seed packet, but this year I collected the seeds easily from all the spent, dried flowers, and have about 100 or so seeds to plan this coming spring. QUESTION: My zinnias grew so tall that they mostly fell over and had to be staked high. HOW DO YOU keep your pretty flower erect? Do you use twine, etc? Curious. Thanks for your video. J. Cante

RE AFRICAN VIOLETS – Joann Yelton

Glad to hear you’re starting with 4 beautiful violet plants. When you keep them in on a window sill, consider turning them around several times each week so that they don’t get leggy competing for sunlight. If your grow light bulb is LED set the height so it casts evenly over your 4 plants. They don’t throw off any damaging heat. The same with a full spectrum grow light bulb except you may have to raise it so that the heat intensity isn’t so hot that it starts to burn the plants. While we switched to LED, when we used bulbs we had hooks on the edge of the bookshelf near our miniature violets so that we could raise or lower the light fixture accordingly by using the back of our hand to test the proper distance that still casts light over all our plants, but not so hot on your hand after about 10 seconds. Miniature violets are a bit harder to find but we notice several online vendors had these for sale if you’re unable to find them locally. Being tiny in comparison, be mindful of their size and the heat being cast by the bulb. Hopefully this is helpful and reassuring.

Dear Lynn and Richard, thank you so much for replying to my comment on your video.

Judy Michon

 

Hi Lynn and Richard! WOW is all I I say about your Garden. You two bring a big 😊SMILE to my face every time I watch you both. So, until next time God Bless you and your family and have a Blessed Evening and Stay Safe my dear Friends. Joan Shute

 

Oh my gosh Lynn, what a gorgeous and healthy-looking harvest of squash. I am impressed! You are correct, in the baskets on the porch they all look like they are part of a beautiful still life painting. Josh Mendle

 

Thank you so much. I am so glad I found you in my search, how to over winter geraniums. I live in southwest Michigan so our weather is much like yours. I enjoyed your video very much. I have subscribed. Judy Michon

 

Love that screened in porch, so versatile, in so many of your videos! Did you get the outside of that sided with the rest of your home, (I think that was last year)? Is the roof shingled to match the rest of the home? I think you two are fabulous, &amp; I love the lifestyle and the home you’ve created. Thank you for all of your sharing. KeepingOurHome

 

Thank you very much for this video I am definitely going to be making ketchup this year in addition to BBQ sauce. And of course, I’m from Wisconsin so why wouldn’t I not try your recipe thanks. Ken Schoenberger

 

Thank you for the video! It is full of information. I can’t wait to experiment with all the geraniums my neighbor will be giving me!!! She usually throws them away. Maria Pedraza

 

Hi Lynn &amp; Richard- You both brighten my day during these difficult things we live in. How are your 5 in 1 apple trees doing? I don’t have a garden this year but I am getting great helpful tips from you both for next year. Have a great day &amp; take care. Jackie Pordon

 

Love the tour and your garden looks wonderful! I look forward to your videos and I think you’re the sweetest couple ever…God Bless. Laurie Bosworth

 

Thank you both for awesome garden know how. Love the 950 videos. Tammy Johnson

 

I watch all of your videos, you’re my background noise while I work, my coworkers listen to makeup videos or music, I listen to gardening videos and save the ones I can apply to my own garden. I’m a beginning gardener and your videos are fantastic I’ve learned so much! Jenny Dfrog

 

Hello. Thank you for your video. I live in Switzerland and for the first time I planted these beautiful flowers. I’m looking forward to multiplying them. In English, the name of these is Kansas Feathers. Best regards. Sylko

 

New sub. I think I finally found my gardening channel best for my region! Blue Dawning

 

I just discovered you while searching for a good video on pruning “weeping” deciduous ornamental trees. I prune these all the time but have not had the time to do a video and so your video is a great find! I know you did this five years ago, but it definitely is still very useful. Your love of plants and caring demeanor made this a delightful video to watch. I have subscribed to your channel and when I get the opportunity. I plan to binge-watch your videos! Thanks! Jeff Harris

 

Thank you for the info on mulching with straw! I am new to vegetable gardening and this video helped tremendously. I finally took the leap into vegetable gardening starting with seeds!! I’ve planted many years of flower gardens so I took the leap this year into veggie gardening. It’s a definite learning curve but with the help of people like you two my learning curve has stayed level. Thank you for sharing your knowledge it’s what keeps me going! Cheryl Morgan

 

I like the fact that you are using a food mill. Some videos do not…and i don’t like eating seeds. Kevin West

 

Your video was absolutely very explanatory and detailed that I’ve been looking for. I have two big ones in front of my porch and I want to try to do something that would make them look nicer. Thank you so much for sharing, very helpful. Wendy Guerra

 

I have been watching so many crime TV episodes lately that it’s been bringing a lot of discouragement. I hopped onto my PC instead and said “God, I want to hear from You!” and then your video appeared. When you talked about Noah I thought “THESE ARE MY KIND!” Thank you. You ARE sweet. I loved your sweet conversations with the ants. It reminded me so much of myself that it made me laugh. Elise Weatherly

 

I’ve been watching a number of your videos, especially since we are not as free to go as we were before this pandemic.  I do watch your videos on a smart TV through YouTube which does not have the capability of “liking” or “subscribing”.  I have to get onto my computer if I want to comment on a video. I enjoy the content very much.  It’s fun to watch you and other folks with videos in the area (I’m in Bayside).  As I said to a friend recently, the people we watch regularly become like family.  I even drove past your house one day when I was itching to get out.  I’d like to visit someday.  I also sent a friend in Palm Springs the link to your most recent video where you’re lamenting all the weeds.  He wonders why I’m weeding all the time.  It was such a good example. Thanks and keep up the good work and stay safe. Cheryl Rausch

 

This was a great video. I can’t wait to make some jam. I didn’t know about adding butter to prevent foaming. Thanks for sharing. God Bless and Happy canning. Kathy Johnsom

 

Thank you for answering my comment as well as for all the good content. I love to watch you both. So few garden shows in our time zone. Thanks again!!! Kathy Kroering

 

First, I want you to know how much I enjoyed watching your video with this title:  Deer Netting Deterrent – Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 701… I gardened for years but had to almost totally quit because of sciatica and a few other issues.  I’ve missed it so much, and your video got me longing for it all over again.  I loved it, and I can see you love it.  It was so easy to love both of you immediately.  (And I think you’re both beautiful!)  You seem so warm and welcoming.  If you ever get anyone being mean to you, I would personally like to beat them up. Thank you so much for sharing your special gift to others!! Take care, stay safe and God Bless!!Susie

 

As always, your garden is stunning and inspiring. I learned all kinds of flowers by watching your videos. It’s true. I first fell in love with your peonies…a Peony grower up Queensland (an all year -ound warmer part of Australia) and he was growing his lot in full sun. That gave me hope to get one to grow successfully in my yard. And, btw, I started loving bearded iris again when I saw your lot bloom…Mary Playford

 

Hi Lynn. I just want to thank you and Richard so much for informing us about the all metal garden hoses. My son gave me one for Mothers’ day and it has made my watering so much easier. I can actually put it up and away when I am finished and no sweat. That makes my husband happy too. Thank you for all of your videos. Barbara Fegley

 

I very much enjoy you and Lynn and your videos. Not to mention your kind gentle ways. Without being overt, you send a wonderful message to your viewers. Blessings always, Jill Keim

 

Just wanted to let you both know again, how much I love watching your videos and seeing the beautiful space you’ve made.  A hearty and healthy Irish wish to you both and keep the videos coming!   Jane and Chuck Maloney, Springfield MO

 

Good morning, Lynn. My name is Linda Delvo, from Greenville , SC. I love your videos and your relationship with your husband. It’s very much like my husband and I… Thank you so much. And keep filming , love watching your videos. Linda Delvo

What a beautiful, grand garden. L. Robin

 

I love all your garden tours. They are so informative. Since watching your videos I feel more “brave” to try new things in my garden. I love your honesty about how you thought something would be good and later regret it. It makes me feel like it is ok to take a risk. If it doesn’t work out how you expect, that is ok. Thanks for the inspiration and for the guide you sent. It is very helpful. Hannah Babiak

 

Wonderful garden. Thank you for sharing…Gardening is a blessing especially now. Take care and be safe. Amalia Gomez

I have been a subscriber to your channel for quite some time and have looked at most of the videos from then to now. I am looking at you from Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. This is not a gardening comment although I absolutely love to look at the beautiful flowers and the fruits and vegetables that you plant and harvest…My comment is on the way the both of you get along. Not often one sees spouses behave so beautifully with one another. Please keep that relationship going and stay safe. Jamelia Khan Worrell

 

Thank you SO MUCH for the very thorough, helpful and informative response to my inquiry. You and Richard are truly amazing. Your energy and passion for what you do is incredible and endless.

Love you two. Good videos. I’m from River Falls, transplanted to TX. Kathy Carloss

 

Thank you so much Lynn! You are a sweetheart. My family recently moved to Wisconsin from California so I am learning how to garden in the Midwest and it is very new concept for me as the weather and growing seasons here are so different from California. I am watching your videos hoping to learn new gardening techniques for Midwest weather. Nina TranLe

 

Thank you both and pepper for all the fantastic help… Gloria Bailey

 

I just discovered your “Wisconsin Garden” channel a few weeks ago and have been binge watching daily. Thanks for sharing your knowledge of gardening. I look forward to watching you garden grow through the summer months. Stay well. Julia Morton

 

WisconsinGarden Ahhh thank you. I love your channel you explain things so well, and when a question pops up in my head, you normally cover it shortly after. Happy growing. The Happy Human

 

Lynn, I wanted to tell you two how much I have enjoying watching your videos.  Being secluded gives me time to sit down and watch all your shows I access on YouTube, and I have watched them multiple times.  I am an avid Gardner and thoroughly enjoy watching you two.  I give you a Thumbs up each and every time I see you.  Of course, once I gave you an electronic thumbs up, I just give you my thumb so you can see me from the TV.  Keep the shows coming.  I would really like to get to know you better.  I hybridize daylilies and hibiscus, so I am a passionate Gardner.  Hope to hear from you soon.  God Bless you both. Gerald Picus

I appreciate your understanding of gardening and have learned a lot – from Zone 3. Debbie Sirota

 

Lynn, I found your YouTube last year. You are such a good teacher and explanations are easy to follow and understand. It is so enjoyable and relaxing watching you in action in the garden. In times like we are experiencing, it is great to go to this site and forget about the more unpleasant things that we face. Your episode on iris was so helpful…I wasn’t sure what was happening to my Iris’ but followed your advice and was able to save the good plants. Thank you! Joseph Cirasella

 

Richard and Lynn are so special that they will never fully understand their true stature of greatness among those that they have touched. I am lucky because of you. John Cole

 

I am a new viewer and fellow zone 5 Wisconsinite. I have already learned so much from you. Thanks for your wisdom, wonderful attitude, and sweet, loving relationship! Ann S

 

I just got done watching you answer questions. If I were not as crazy about gardening as you are, I would still watch you anyway. You are so delightful to watch! Lynn, you looked real beautiful with your hair fixed so neat. I do like it sticking out all over though and I love your mischievous, sweet smiles too. Almut Niederman – Germany

 

I love this question and answering thing you two have started! Thanks so much. Last year my daughter and I both had squash bugs. Lots! It was a daily battle. We would spray them with a mister of water, Dawn detergent and something else. I think I told you last year. I had three kinds. Thanks for all your help. Nina Nina

 

Thank you for your videos during these “indeterminate” times. It helps to calm and refocus thoughts to a positive topic. This is just what’s needed from the corona virus news. Sending well wishes and hope to everyone. We can and will get through these uncertain times together! God Bless and keep you safe. Veronica

 

Looking good Richard! Loving your shirts and greatly enjoying the question and answer videos. Mary Fallon

 

Hello Lynn and Richard! Since watching your video on Zinnias I have planted some and I’m always getting compliments on them! Thank you for your inspirational and informative videos! – Amal from Saudi

 

Pepper is a sweetie. I’m glad to see you back as well. I really missed you last summer when you took a little time off because of Richard’s surgery. You are such a sweet person and Richard reminds me of my dad who passed away over ten years ago. So besides being informative your videos give me a warm feeling. Richard is too young to be my dad though, he’d be in his late eighties if he had lived. Dianne Hasse

 

I’m enjoying the questions and answers! Thanks for bringing joy into the day. Scott Miller

 

Hi Lynn and Richard. Well I went out and worked in my Garden also. It sure was a Beautiful day and I couldn’t let it go by without being outside. I Love your new member to your family Pepper. He sure looks like a good pup. Oh, Lynn I Love, Love, Love your chimes. My Dad made me Beautiful Chime years ago and I Love it. They are so Calming. Thank you for sharing. So, until next time God Bless you and Richard and have a Blessed Week. Joan Shute

 

Thank you for this educational lesson on irises, over the last few years I’ve learned so much about gardening because of your channel. I was outside yesterday in my yard in southern New Hampshire doing a gardening clean up like you and working until the sun almost set. I couldn’t stop! The temperature was 71 degrees in the afternoon and the fresh air was so lovely. Spring is coming. Kelley Amador

 

Watching from Brazil. I am Very happy to be in this Channel. Wisconsin has a beautiful Nature and so lovely people. A big huge for every Wisconsin people. Rogeria Catto

I just love you guys so much. I wish you were my neighbors. I’ve just started, caught the gardening bug big time. This will be my first year trying lots of new things. Elberta peaches (3), tomatoes, cukes, squash and some others. Also put some zinnia seeds down. Here in Texas. Keep up the great work, such lovely educators. Matt Barrett

 

Thank you for replying to my question. Am trying to find some seed but will also look for plants. I enjoy your videos so much. Your music makes me happy. Watch the videos every day. Keep up the good work. Linda Bucek

I love all of the plants in your garden. Absolutely amazing that you two must take care of all of them yourselves! I have perhaps only a tenth of the area and think it is way too much work! But so worthwhile! Love all your videos – especially ones when you get to munch. Patti Nakano

 

Hello Wisconsin Gardener! Love your channel… Debra Turner

Thank you so much for the liatris seed from the previous year. It took a while for me to recognize the emerging plant because I thought it was horsetail weed. I pulled some out but let this patch mature. This is the curly liatris which is exposed to 10 hours of sunlight per day. Thanks again for all your hard work. You really do care &amp; share. The planet is a better place because of you two. Rosemary McGrenera

 

Just a quick email to let you guys know how much we have enjoyed driving by your gardens!  I have told my husband several times that if we ever saw anyone outside, we would have to stop to chat.

I really enjoyed this video! I don’t know too much about scapes because I have never planted garlic before. I think I watched a video you produced on planting garlic in the fall and I learned how to do to it. I really enjoy listening to the banter back and forth between you both! Thanks for sharing! Pat Schomann

 

Thank you very much for sharing! Since watching your video, get a lot of help, every time you two humorous video very happy, today’s garlic can stir-fry meat, very delicious, you can try. Lixin Bao

You two!!! You had me laughing so hard tears were rolling down my cheeks!!! Lynlalalal

 

Sounds like you guys have your work cut out for you. Your garden is gorgeous as usual. I learn a lot about gardening from you guys. Keep these videos coming and you guys are such a cute couple. Chrystal Sabin

 

You’ve inspired me! Today while weeding I was just going to bend my daffodil leaves and rubber band them. Instead I braided them and they look great lying on the mulch. I can hardly wait until the mail woman sees them tomorrow. Hahaha! Big smile here and thank you for the clever idea. Veronica

 

Fabulous video! i absolutely love your garden and all the things you add to the garden. And, your light balls that was awesome (i thought i was the only person that loved that kinda’ lighting) thank you for sharing your time. Aurora Gonzalez

That’s is so great! Your garden is awesome and there was some Russian flowers (Siberian Rose – orange Globeflower) that I tried but could not grow here in Brookfield from seeds. I am from Siberia and it was really exciting to see them in your video successfully growing less than a mile from my house. Elena Sakman

 

Excellent Video. I spend way too much time in the Gardens as my wife may attest. I’ve been looking for a better way to label as I propagate my lily varieties. Wonderfully done. Suffering from being in the “State of Geez” and CRS. Thanks Stephen Hill

 

It was so amazing to visit you and Lynn, I had a great time exploring your garden and I am so grateful to you both for taking the time to show me around!  It is so awesome to see people taking the time and effort to transform their property into a paradise that provides and enhances the beauty of this world!  Alec LePoidevin

 

Hello lovely! I just adore you two working together in your garden(s). I forgot to send you a big “Thank you”. I got one of your videos where you were planting a bed and using an umbrella while you were working. It was one of those moments where I thought, hey, why didn’t I think of that? So now instead of roasting in the hot sun, I set up an umbrella for myself. 💕💕 I’m in zone 5, similar to your conditions from Southern Ontario. Missy Gilly

 

I just absolutely LOVE watching the two of you! &lt;3 Classy Conservative

 

You are awesome! The little snippets of your garden look beautiful! Can’t wait to see more videos 😀. Gardening down here in south Florida is like working on the surface of the sun most of the time, but it’s a labor of love. Just seeded some zinnias and came across your video on YouTube. Sue Macedonio

 

Oh my gosh, I’m thrilled to have found your channel! Thank you for sharing all of your garden tips! Missy Gilly

 

Exceptionally beautiful garden as always. I’m so sad to see the peach trees dying. I was first introduced to your channel through your peach harvest videos you did in the past. I also loved seeing how you made preserves, jams, jellies, etc. Ever since, I’ve been completely hooked on your channel. I love the videos you put out. Have a great rest of your day! Spencer Pendleton

 

I agree with you Rick. At <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQdQjZccqXc&amp;t=433s”>7:13</a> when you say wild and lush, I also see beauty. But I understand Lynn. I use to be more ‘Lynn’ like. Now I am absolutely more free. I think watercolor painting has helped me ‘loosen up’. Thank you for sharing your paradise. Lark’s Garden

 

I love your videos, your spirit and beautiful gardens! Aurora Gonzalez

 

Lovely couple. I enjoyed listening to the video just as much as I found it useful…A well-presented video; very helpful. Thank you for sharing. Lauri P

Just happened onto your channel. LOVE IT !!! Can’t wait to see the rest of your videos! Kimberly Ames

 

Thanks for the tour guys. You could call the wilder parts naturalistic planting. It’s trending here in the UK and Europe where a lot of thought, plan and work goes into a bed of plantings but yet looks completely natural; as if Mother Nature and time has done the planting…Foliage Fan

 

I can’t wait until part 6! You have some of the best specimens to enjoy seeing. Both of you always share great gardening information as well. Scott Miller

 

Excellent! Thank you. Juno Chen

 

Have to agree with Richard that the lush area he loves is just magnificent! But then all of your garden is magnificent. Good job guys! Jane Vt.

 

Always enjoy watching your videos. Kathy David

 

Amazingly beautiful, always makes me smile when I see a new post. Somehow, I missed Part 2 so going to go there now, can’t miss a post!

I enjoy your channel so much! We just moved to Wisconsin (Wausau) last June, from Southern Nevada so it is quite a change. My husband, who is originally from Wausau is retired military, so we’ve lived in many places over the years. I am SOOO excited for spring, and Midwest gardening. Amber K Creative

 

Wow, I wonder how your plants and garden took to all that snow and frigid temps! I guess I must be grateful. I live in Southern California where the only snow we get is in the high desert and mountains. But this winter was one to remember. It was cold (for us at least), coldest it’s been in decades, and we got so much rain that got us out of our drought and then some. I live not far outside downtown Los Angeles where in some parts we had snowflakes falling. That is extremely rare for us! And exciting. But now were looking forward to spring and getting all my spring plants ready! Looking forward to what’s to come for Wisconsin Garden. Thank you for all you do! Aaron Francis

 

Wow you guys have been through so much tough weather. Here in Raleigh NC we were wimps compared to you guys. Wesley Hackney

 

I love your channel as it’s a source of garden inspiration! Alien11able

 

I just bought my first house in SE WI and will be starting my first garden! i don’t know any local gardeners yet, so i will be watching your channel and following your lead this spring. I can’t wait to get started after years of dreaming about my own yard. Thanks for making these videos i am learning so much already. Michaela Peterson

 

Good to see you guys!! I was just thinking about yall this afternoon!! I figured once it warmed up enough up there, we would see you guys! Take care &amp; look forward to the next video! Amber Sepulvado

 

Lynn and handsome Richard , please come out side , make a video , even there is nothing up yet , you can make fun of all the brown grasses , dead twigs , dry leaf ..i don’t care just don’t make fun of me 😛 i really miss you guys .I was so grumpy ..now i feel happy to see you guys 😀 thank you for the videos &lt;3 love to hear your voice. Grumpy Cat

 

Thank you so much for sharing your garden videos. They are a delight as well as informative. It’s also a pleasure to see how much you both enjoy your garden and how well you work together. Richard has done some beautiful landscape projects including the pond. As I set watching your videos in my PJ’s drinking coffee and eating chocolate, I think “Do they ever rest”. You both work so hard, giving such time, energy and money to your beautiful property and it shows. Yesterday I came across one of your videos on YouTube, then went to your website and began to binge watching them starting with video one and playing them in chronological order…. It is with great pleasure to watch your garden videos and being allowed to follow you around your beautiful property. It is odd how by reading a book or watching a video that you feel a connection. We are connected, like minded, in enjoying the beauty we can create in our dooryard. Martha Colwell

 

You are the sweetest love to watch you. Hal Mashini

 

Hi, I’m enjoying watching you garden walk through here from Sydney Australia. Your garden is just stunning and the love you both have for nature is fantastic. Ms. Flower WOW

Hi from Chicago. I have been looking for a gardening channel in my zone to follow. What zone are you in? When I heard, “Oh no, Mr. Bill”, I broke out in laughter and hit the subscribe button. Haven’t heard that line in years. Looking forward to catching up on your past videos and the new videos to come. Francine Kupec

 

Lynn and Richard. I love your Wisconsin Garden videos and have been getting into butterfly gardening myself here in Missouri. Just want to say that you are a lovely couple, and it is really cool to see how you support each other in your interests. Katie Rash

 

Thank you for allowing me to garden vicariously through your videos. I am in a condo in Pewaukee, so my “gardening” is limited to some pots on a small patio and front porch. Thanks for all the wonderful videos! Connie

Hello new to your channel from the U.K. Lana Ahmed

 

I always enjoy your videos …and I too am looking forward to getting more seed catalogues in the mail (they are my version of ‘toy’ catalogues). LOL I love that you also leave lots of your perennials and grasses stand through the winter, so do I (at least until late February or early March). Next gardening season my plan is to have more raised beds that will contain both veggies and flowers. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas… stay warm and healthy! Margie Schaecher

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year from Denmark. Thanks for all the great videos this year. Ann Weber

I was so thrilled to came across your YouTube Channel and hoping you won’t mind my way of reaching out. I am from the Tropical Country of the Philippines and I was so amazed of how beautiful Hibiscus are in your Country. I was wondering how were you able to produce those beautiful varieties and make them bloom so beautifully in a temperate country like yours. My name is Jose Marie O. Trangco, you can call me JM.

 

Hello. Loved your recipe and your happy attitude. Very nice video that is easy to follow. I shall follow your recipe next fall when apples fill my garden too. Thank you and God bless. Davidogan

 

Hi from Ireland. I’ve just started watching your channel. I believe that Richard’s favourite peony is called Bowl of Beauty Mary Fallon

 

Hello Ms.Lynn, This is Irene, your brand new subscriber … I just love your channel (and your husbands interacting with you) it’s hilarious!!! <a href=”http://gmail.com/”>.</a>.. Now I’m off to see more of your videos!!!

 

Beautiful artwork! We certainly do appreciate the hard work that went into it. Enjoyed the sayings so much! You both are constantly ever evolving and so much fun to watch …keep it up….we just love all that you do! : Quiet by Nature 20

 

Hi Lynn, I watched your never-ending garden clean up just in time. We were away this week just to arrive home to Northern NJ to a foot of beautiful snow. I waited to trim back my hardy hibiscus, Montauk daisy and asters when I knew there was no threat of warm temps as it seems to change every year. Guess I waited a bit too long. Just a thank you for your informational videos that keep me informed and up to date with tips and tools and GF apple crisp recipe. I love my Root Assassin shovel and may ask Santa for the Sensei trimmer from video 851. Keep warm and healthy this winter, God Bless. Rebecca”

Hi…I’m a fellow Wisconsinite living up here in the Fox Valley region right near Lake Winnebago. I love your channel and just found it a couple of weeks ago. I’ve enjoyed watching what you’re doing in your garden for fall clean up especially sprinkling seeds around in hope’s for new plants in the spring. Jamie Vance

 

I’m so happy that I found your channel. Just recently I discovered it and have learned so much. You two are great and funny too boot. … Your channel is so educational and informative. Thanks for teaching me so much. Chrystal Sabin

 

Love your videos. I’m looking forward to the frost so the grass cutting will end here in NY. Thanks for all the enjoyment your videos give me, you guys really should have a million subscribers. Chowceo

 

Beautiful in every season, the richness of summer filling the seed pods of spring. Your garden is an inspiration for me and I learn something new from you every video. Thanks for the video and all the ones you have shared with us this year. Now rest, much love and peace, blessings Wilma Gregory

Love your videos, very educational and entertaining! Michael Stigler

 

Breathtaking garden with varieties of plants…loved the tour…Sherry Yoosuf

 

Hello Richard and Lynn, Wow, that was fast. I was thinking that it would take days if and before I would get a response. I’m elated!!! Thank you so very much. The recipe looks great. I will make it next weekend, if not sooner and will let you know how it turns out. I’m sure it will be great. I’m liking this YouTube stuff (smile). Thanks again Cyndy

 

WisconsinGarden :Thank you for your kind words and I wish you and yours the best. I wish I could express how much I appreciated your reply. You’re good people. Gerald N.

 

How ironic that I stumble upon this video a year and one day after you created it! I wanted to comment on how much I enjoy your videos. I find them all so informative and even relaxing. You seem like the sweetest couple! I enjoy how loving you treat one another as you create these videos together. Your garden(s) are lovely! I am envious but you give me inspiration for my own. Thank you for your efforts and beautiful work…I’m delighted to have found you two out here. As a camera-shy, self-conscious gal myself, I appreciate you even more for stepping out of your comfort zone to share with all of us. Richard obviously knew what he was doing and his tenacity in convincing you to tolerate the camera lens has given us such treasures to watch and learn from. Thanks to both of you! I look forward to keeping up with all of your future endeavors! My best to you both…. Paula Bee

 

Your garden is so beautiful, so I’m sure your salsa made from your veggies is fabulous. Love the video. Angela Burnett-Mero

Have been watching your videos here in UK. Thanks for making it easy how to harvest blazing star.  My family grows them but until now I wasn’t sure what to Do, but with your video it has made it look so easy. Kind regards. Vivienne Dunlop

 

Just want to say again how much I appreciate all you and Rick do.  Seeing all the work both of you have done this summer spreads inspiration and motivation to do stuff here.  You’re a great influence on me.  I learn something new every time I watch a video, or relearn something I might have forgotten. Scott

 

Richard and Lynn – That was a fabulous tour. I heard wonderful comments as our group was heading for their cars. They were astounded by your creativity and commitment. My favorites: that beech tree and the daphne. I deadheaded and mulched my front garden beds today – in honor of you two, who are so inspiring! Thanks again, Roseann

 

This video popped up on my homepage for recommendations. You guys are adorable! I really loved your banter. It’s obvious that you enjoy each other’s company. How you two interact was just as enjoyable as your lovely gardens. You gotta new subscriber! Nia Lin

 

Just finished watching this video. You’ve done a good job explaining everything. I’m looking forward to using the seaweed extract/vodka inoculation to plant the garlic. Looks like it will be worth it seeing how you got very big bulbs in summer of 2018! Thanks so much for taking the time to explain things so well. I appreciate your humor too! Pat Schomann

 

Hi, I am Tony. Originally from Pakistan but living in Taiwan since long-long time. Although i have so much interest in gardening and farming so I am always watching lots of lots of YouTube video from all over the world. Today I came along one of your tomato ketchups making and canning video which is about 5 years old. After that I wanted to watch more of your videos and maybe the latest ones. So, I chose this latest video of you introducing your tomato plants and planting some other flowers and renovating your other parts of your garden. I want to tell you I love your both videos even though I would watch more of your videos later. Besides all other aspects what I love most is both of your bonding, love and respect for each other. And how you together making these lovely videos is just remarkable. My best wish for both you and I wish both of you have a long healthy life together and keep people loving you. Cheers. Yo Yo

 

Though I do not usually advocate visiting YouTubers’ homes, my husband and I just loved our visit with Richard and Lynn at their lovely garden. We stopped by to drop off some books for the little free library after we were invited. I wanted to see it and show it to my husband so we could make our own for our home in a West Allis. They happened to be home and graciously gave us a tour of their now famous Wisconsin Garden. Richard was so full of energy and great advice while Lynn was as sweet as she is in the videos. My husband and I are very grateful to them for all the years of HARD WORK they have put into their fun as well as educational videos because they have taught us how to garden and what is possible when it comes to modifying your garden space over the span of years. Some things work out and some things don’t and that’s just the way it goes, but Wisconsin Garden rolls with the circumstances. They somehow manage to give me confidence every year to try new things, share, and care. Our little free library project will start soon and it’s all thanks to them. Seriously, I don’t know where they get all that energy from but it’s simply amazing. Thanks again for all you’ve done in our Wisconsin Garden community. Vada Ann

 

I love the Wisconsin Garden videos on YouTube and the Voight’s webpage. Though I am not in, or from, Wisconsin (I live in Portland, OR), I appreciate the uplifting tone of both the videos and website… and the gardening tips are great (I definitely use the tomato tricks with baking soda and powdered milk!) Mike Groszkruger

 

Thank you for the informative tutorial of your beautiful garden. I’m a beginner at gardening so watching your Utube videos have given me ideas of what to plant in my drought considered area in Southern Cal. Not many videos explain the different types and names of flowers/plants which yours does and love the idea of labeling your flowers/plants. Love, love watching your videos. Thanks again. Katrina Eaton

 

The Wisconsin Garden is wonderful resource both visiting in person or via the internet. Rick and Lynn are retired teachers who approach aspects of gardening in a relaxed learning environment. Their eclectic, experimental garden is home to various plant varieties of vegetable, fruit, flowers, trees, bushes, and even pond life. A visit in person will leave you with something learned, and a visit on their Wisconsin Garden YouTube channel is a wealth of techniques, instructions, and tips. Plus you will have some fun along the way with these two friendly hosts. Scott &amp; Sarah Miller

 

Hi Lynn. Thank you so much for your videos! they have changed my gardening life! Nancy Lichtenstein

Everything looks beautiful. I love watching your videos. You are both so informative and sweet as can be. Thanks for all you do and the wonderful tips. I never knew about the powdered milk. I am going to have to give that a try. Happy Gardening.

 

Enjoy that wonderful pond and space. It looks amazing. Betty Weinberg

 

Everything looks amazing, this is our first year with garlic and last weekend cut all our scapes. I have to say Garlic is the easiest to grow. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful tips. Celeste Gardner

 

Good morning Lynn, everything looks wonderful. I empathize humidity with you… it’s hard to work under those conditions. However, when you turn around and see your accomplishments, it is well worth the effort. I love your videos and enjoy hearing your voices, it’s like a long-lost friend I wish I knew in person. God bless and take care, Chris Littebrant – Raleigh NC

 

I’ve been watching Wisconsin Garden videos for several weeks now. I look forward to all their new videos. They’re very informative and just a lovely couple to watch. I only wish I had discovered these videos years ago. Pamela Descoteaux

 

You two are an absolute joy and delight to watch as you work together on your garden! I would not find two souls more down to earth than you two! Love watching your videos even though I don’t have the space to be able to do all that you do but I do get a lot of plant knowledge from you. Best to you from the west coast! Priya S.

 

Amazing gardens! The diversity is more than impressive… Thanks very much! Holly Huebner

 

I love to watch the tour of your garden! … You both are so inspiring! Meredith Klein

 

What a sweetheart Richard was to bring you those surprises! The two of you have no idea how wonderful it makes me feel to watch your hard work and see the beautiful bounty of your efforts. Love you all. Barbara White

 

Thank you very much Lynn &amp; Richard, it’s very kind of you to answer me, I live in Portugal, so I hope my bulb can keep growing because the weather here is not so cold and with your recommendations I’m sure I’m on the right path xx Liz Tovar

 

Wow, yo guys never cease to impress. I watched the entire waterfall series and thought you might be done with construction, but you had more surprises for us. The decks look amazing! You have inspired me! Now to light a fire under my other half…Take care, Jean Polkoski

 

God bless you both more &amp; more!!!!! I love you two. You’re so down to earth and cheerful. Your property is beautiful and that crimson red arbor is everything. I can’t stop watching these videos; they’re putting me in the mood for spring. Royaltiri

 

Luv your spunk, and your interaction with your husband as well as your obvious love and respect for your neighbor. You are good People! Noel Griffith

 

Just wanted to say hello :-). I’m Jean… one of your new subscriber! 🙂 I am a Filipina, but living in UK (Shropshire, England). I found your channel and I just wanna say how I love your YouTube videos, you and your husband are definitely a team! I love your irises…I am new to gardening. only really started to garden when we moved back to the UK in Dec 2012, (have lived in Switzerland for 12 years). Though I’m a newbie, I am a keen learner and I surely am enjoying doing it in our tiny garden…again, thank you for all your videos! I loooooove them and keep them coming! Jean Leach

 

Hey there! I was looking for information on Zinnia’s and found your AMAZING blog. Still watching a lot of the older episodes and learned a lot so far. Sadly, we don’t have these huge gardens here in the Netherlands…Gosh i can only envy you ha ha. Barbara van Eldijk Bouwens

 

So glad you decided to do a winter tour. You have a beautiful garden and is great to be able to see the beautiful changes that the seasons have to offer. Camila SunJoy

 

Ah yes. the January thaw came and went. It was nice while it lasted. Now southern Ontario is into the deep freeze again… Sheila Broad

 

Been watching your videos for about a year now and I just have to say, I LOVE THEM. Your garden is always gorgeous and there is always something new going on…Keep up the awesome work fine people. Eric Euteneier

 

Good morning from England. Good to see you. Lara Garcia

 

Enjoyed your video Lynn and your garden always looks so nice know matter what time of year it is anyway you mention you had a little bit of snow we had some as well not much I would say about an inch or so it did not stay around too long well talk to you later. Jackie Littlefield

 

What a fabulous place to visit. Thanks for sharing this with us. We too in Jersey grow more than is expected. Although this winter is putting a real stress on some. Can hardly wait for it to be over and spring comes. Take care, Blessings. Wilma Gregory

 

Hello from Canada! I just stumbled upon your channel and subscribed immediately. Oh, my goodness, your yard is such an oasis! You both are such an inspiration to me and to all of your viewers, I am sure. Although your beautiful yard is most definitely a lot of work, it is obvious that it is a labor of love. It is such a treat to see all the beautiful blooms and shrubbery, especially at this time of year. We just came through a cold snap here, -55 degrees F so I think I will make a pot of coffee and enjoy another video. I think I have some catching up to do. Keep up the amazing work and thank you so much for sharing! Sharon Olson

 

Hello Wisconsin Garden. I absolutely love your videos. Jessica Barron

 

I love your videos.They are like “The Reading rainbow”..only~rainbow gardens,for adults..Keep The Faith Homestead

 

Just started watching your videos and have to say that I really enjoy them. You have created a beautiful garden haven all around your property and it is clearly a labor of love for both of you to take care of and create. Very inspiring and it is making me look forward to spring that much more! Hoboker

 

I enjoy your videos. I watch several vlogs and I’m always fast forwarding through other people’s videos because they talk and talk and talk. But the two of you have just the right balance of personality and information. Always learn something new from you. Thank you for sharing with us. Nancy Bennett

 

Hi Lynn &amp; Richard! Congratulations on #800!! I have to tell you the smartest thing I have ever done gardening was not in the dirt/soil (LOL Richard) at all. It was subscribing to your channel. I have so many plants in my gardens that I had never heard of or seen before because of you. Another big lesson learned is seed saving, honestly it just never occurred to me, I just divided plants, but I now have 20 envelopes filled with seed. Thank you for all you do, keep up the good work!! – Jean Polkoski

 

I so love your videos…thank you for allowing us, your followers, into a small part of your life and making us feel like family! Christine – West Jordan, Utah

 

I am only 69, don’t eat much and love to laugh – Will you adopt me? Seriously though, I am so grateful and blessed to have found you on my computer. You are such giving and warm people and bring such joy and beauty to everyone who watches your Vlogs. Thank you, thank you, thank you – God Bless You – Barbara White

 

New subscriber here – the other week I just happened upon your videos – and I am sure glad I did! You two are the cat’s pajamas – and then some LOL! Impressed &amp; inspired by all your energy &amp; positive attitudes! If I was Calvin (as in Calvin &amp; Hobbes) I would put you in a duplicator machine – we could use more like you in the world! God Bless!! P.S. You don’t need to go rooftop to impress me – I was already – please be careful!!!!! 🙂 Annie65H

 

Dear Lynn and Richard, you two are goldmines…..true goldmines. If people only knew how much money, time, effort and knowledge it takes to do what you do, they would all agree! You both inspire me so much. I lost my husband of 36 years a few weeks ago, and I am deeply grieving. Your relationship reminds me of ours. Partners for life, lovers for life and friends for life! Thank you for all you do. Linda Kordich

 

I visited Wisconsin Gardens today. Their yard looks like a park! It is absolutely stunning – flowers, shrubs, vegetable gardens, and a “Book Library” for people to stop and read, take home, or donate a book. I even had some of my garden questions answered. Jan Endries

 

Good morning Lynn and Richard ~ First, let me say ‘thank you!’ for your great response to my initial inquiry. Never did I expect such wonderful customer service (and I’m not really even your customer!). Your obvious commitment and love for what you do is refreshing and appreciated. Doni Beauregard

 

…I thought my parents were the hardest working retired people I know but the two of you beat them! Thanks for all your videos. Carol Jean Gardens

 

I am amazed by your gardens. As I sat here with a severe head cold, on the best day we’ve had all season, I watched all 4 parts and you brightened my day…You open your gardens, your knowledge and your hearts to us all the while finding some semblance of sanity in what we call lives – bravo and thank you! Susan Mandeville

 

Hey! I’ve never commented but I feel compelled to reach out to you guys. Four years ago, we lived in Portland OR and had sustained many many years of victory garden gardening. I managed to feed my family of 6 with much of what I grew (and canned) and was even featured in the local paper. Well my husband was transferred for his job to Green Bay Wisconsin. Up until then, I probably would not have been able to point out Wisconsin on a map, let alone know what it was like to live (and garden) there. So I went to YouTube to find ANYTHING about Wisconsin and gardening in Wisconsin to see if I could keep doing my wonderful hobby in this new place I would call home. Your Vlog was kind of my bible for quite a while. It allowed to me to see a new part of the country and that I could easily garden there. You guys gave me such hope. Well, fast forward four years and I am happy to say that our move here was quite successful. We L-O-V-E Green Bay, we love Wisconsin – we can’t imagine living anywhere else. We managed to purchase our dream property out in the country and are building our new home and new garden space this summer. We just raised our first flock of baby chicks to free range on our property. And after living here, you two embody the spirit of Wisconsin. Kind, generous, no nonsense, enjoy life, living well with neighbors and nature, concise, speaks your mind, taking the best care of what God has given you. Thank you for being my first taste of Wisconsin! Quick question – what do you mulch your vegetable beds with? Years ago I remember you put grass clippings but it looked like straw on them? Thanks again Shannan Deshazer

 

You two are adorable! Thanks for sharing your garden with us. You did a great job sharing how to grow an affordable garden. Beautiful. Kudos Magazine

 

I love the wonderful energy that you two are exuding.  I am new to your site and am so happy to have found you. I wish I could have this serenity that I see in you. God bless you and keep up the great work. Ash Nav

 

Thank you for sharing your videos! Absolutely amazing! I am in awe of how you can maintain such a garden of such magnitude! With all of your wooden structures, have you ever had to deal with carpenter bees? They have been drilling numerous holes in my elevated garden beds. I was wondering if you have any suggestions? I grow organically and do not want to contaminate any of my vegetables. Thank you! Caitlin Haack

 

Hi, I am so thankful that I have found your videos​. They have helped me survive these crazy Wisconsin winters and I have been inspired for this spring in my own garden. 🙂 I would love to know if you have any of those Grape Irises available? I have been looking for them for years. I have such fond memories of them from my grandma’s garden. Thank you. Sally Caldoza

 

You are such lovely people Jesus must love you A lot! You make me cry For all the love you share with each other and us, Thank you so much!! Marilyn Maloch

 

Lynn and Richard, I love your videos. So glad I have hundreds more to watch as I can’t seem to get enough! How can we thank you for all the great information and so professionally produced videos… and especially your beautiful personalities. Speaking of personalities, that little boy was such a treat. I literally laughed out loud during his pond duties. He gave us a big bonus video ending with his thumbs-up signal right to the camera man! Your videos always leave me educated and ready for all my garden tasks (new garden)… and you always leave me with a warm smile. Hugs to you both. Sylvia Delk

 

Thank you for sharing your videos! Absolutely amazing! I am in awe of how you can maintain such a garden of such magnitude! Thank You! Caitlin Haack

 

I hope your neighbors’ love you guys as much as I love you guys! You’re awesome! Christopher E. Pineda

The wife would love to have one in our front garden. Yours looks great . Cheers Roger Barossa Valley South Australia. Roger Leslie

What a lovely project! Wish I were your neighbor. My kids and I would visit the library and your amazing garden often! 🙂 Tathi Mitchell

 

This is so exciting, I just love watching how happy you are. The smile on your face is worth a million dollars. I wish you the best success and hope many children will use it, and also have happy memories to tell there kids some day. Great Job. Rosemary Wascher

 

What you are doing is incredible!!!!. Many Blessings!!!! Hilda Candelario

 

Love love love your videos!!! Thank you for sharing! Near that large Japanese maple on North side (which is absolutely gorgeous!!!) I would love to see an assortment of coleus, not to compete with the tree but to add some colors. Just a neat idea! If my garden is ever half of what you guys have I will be tickled! Amanda Mendoza

 

Lynn, you are my “heroine”! That is clearly back breaking work! But, what I love about you most is that you seem to do it with a smile (not so easy to do, hung over a pond), an effective determination to see the desired end results. I even, found myself moving my body in an attempt to help you pull some of those boulders out of that pond. Great job, as always. Now, I had better get to my yard, so as to not feel so guilty…just watching…LOL! Evelyn Hawkins

 

This is like a TV miniseries! I’ve got episodes every night to watch :))))) Phillip Yorko

 

You guys really inspire me , lots of information and gentle and knowledgeable people ,TY for your time I’m starting my second year in our new garden , I’ve used many ur ideas and pray for great success , thank u again. Kelleena Lochhead

Sweet and funny video! Kept me grinning and chuckling the entire time. Getting to see Lynn’s personality shine was a real treat. You are both very sweet. I’m a recent subscriber; and i thank you both for all that you do! Zenda Morrison

 

I always enjoy watching your videos and I also am always more than happy to give you a thumbs up. B. I guess it takes all types, but the ONE thumbs down guy…oh well…never mind. Why give him or her any attention? Randy Watts

 

You guys are like family. I love your sessions/lessons. Thank you. I am from Long Island, New York….And in my later stage of life, I work in a very fine nursery. You simplify your presentations to make them very easy to follow, and understand. A compliment. If I can add anything to assist….please ask…….Patrick Walsh.

 

You both are so much fun. I love this video and all the gardening theme ideas are fantastic. Deezie

Wonderful YouTube channel. Learn so much from Lynn and Richard. Their kind gentle souls are a pleasure to watch and gain knowledge. Rose Mary

 

They are great gardeners and very helpful with their channel and answering questions. Thanks to Wisconsin Garden. Matthew Padilla

They offer very helpful hints and tips from product demos and reviews to tours around their garden. You can find How-to videos too! Follow Lynn into the kitchen where she prepares the freshly picked fruits and veggies into tasty dishes and snacks. I have been watching their YouTube videos for years. I like how they always support their hometown and state businesses! With gardening, there always comes some trial and error, Lynn and Richard show us in videos that they too sometimes have to move plants and relocate them when they don’t seem to flourish in a certain spot. It’s comforting how personable they are and make me feel like I am right there with them and that it is ok to get your hands dirty and experiment. Joann Descallar

 

The couple behind Wisconsin Garden is an absolute inspiration for this beginner gardener. Lynn and Richard are generous in sharing stunning and informative video tours of their garden, updates, tips and lessons they learn along the way, and they are always quick and gracious in answering anybody’s questions. One of my favorite accounts on YouTube. Luca P.

 

Love, love, love! Mary Fetty

Love ur positively, wish u prosperity and more bids to come:) live ur channel guys, u never disappointed me. Kaho Fotyfar

 

What a great find today! For an activity at Lasata Care Center, right down the road from where you were filming. We were searching YouTube with the residents to find something interesting to watch. Seeing that many of the residents are from Cedarburg, they wanted to see something related to their home town. They watched and thoroughly enjoyed your video. We talked about the foam in the river (as they’ve been seeing this on local news) but the best part was the wonderful tour and reminiscing that took place. Thank you for doing this and sharing your video! Margie Spitza

 

I just came across your channel. You two are the sweetest couple! It’s a joy watching your videos and I’m learning a lot. I just recently started getting into gardening so I’m watching a tin of informative videos and yours was one I learned a lot from. Your such a hard working lady. Keep up the good work with your awesome videos! Yaz Q

 

I never tire of watching your well thought-out and informative videos. I have never signed off without learning something I didn’t know before. You, two seem such a lovely couple…that’s refreshing, too! Just to mention, I like when the (CC) Close Caption is enabled, especially, when I viewing with others around, this way I don’t disturb the less enthusiastic…LOL! Thanks, again for time well spent! You’re helping me be a better Gardner…Who knew it was possible??? LOL Evelyn Hawkins

 

Wow! I just stumbled on this video! I LOVE your garden decorations or garden art! I’m so jealous! I wish my husband enjoyed this type of thing as much as I do. Rhonda

 

Hello Lynne and Rick! So ENJOY your videos and just love your personalities, too! Wish your videos were 5 hours long (each!). God bless you both. Your hard work in producing excellent videos is obvious. Thank you. Another great video update. So much wonderful information. So glad we can watch your videos multiple times and that you number them for easy reference. I love Richard’s final comment after stating he will just sit and watch things grow and saying… “Bring me lunch please!” I think we all noticed Richard shut off camera and chose not to video tape himself getting clunked on the head by Lynn. Just kidding… I see nothing but love and joy on this channel. Thank you both!!! Sylvia Delk

 

I always like your Garden Tours 😀 Feels like I am walking around the backyard with a friend, chatting about plants. So thank you both for sharing the experience with us ! Happy Gardening + greetings from Germany. Keksdich

 

Thank you so much for sharing this video. Greetings from Brazil. Pedro da Silva Rodriques

 

I love your videos and your enthusiasm for gardening. I had to laugh at the number of tomato plants you put in.  I plant 12 tomato plants each year which produce more than my husband and son and I can eat, plus we supply other family members and friends… Ginny Kerlin

 

OH my goodness! We just bought a house and are thinking of installing a pond…. I know after seeing this I won’t be planting any cat tails. You poor thing. My back was screaming just watching you. I think a pair of waders might help the next time. Betty Weinberg

 

Oh Lynn I don’t envy that job. We had a pond when we lived in Texas. It was never that prolific…. Lana Bisson

Great video today I learned things about trimming I did not know. Sugar Foot

 

Finally have internet back and I can get caught up in all your videos I miss them. Unfortunately we had to move into a apartment and I have no yard or a deck at all to plant very sad so I live my love of planting through you. Laineyslife

 

I always learn so much from your videos*** great video! Dezzie

 

Thanks for sharing! I always enjoy your gardening blog. I am in central Illinois and have many of the same things coming up with cold weather expected on Saturday…Thanks for another great video! Cassey Roach

 

They are REALLY suffering from the heat in Australia, where it’s Summer now. I’m scared of how warm it its; it’s like May. I’m pretty old and I’ve never seen a whole season out of time like this year. I think you did a great mitzvah by planting a tree or two like you did. Best wishes always and God bless you. 2listinging1

 

I love how you and your husband collaborate on the videos:) So awesome to have such a healthy, mutual interest.  I hope some day to share my love for growing w/ someone like you do.  Thanks for making your videos! Martha Conover

 

Can’t wait to get out there and get my big long bed ready to plant them, though I guess it will have to be a while since early March in KY is way too early.. Hope mine do as well as yours did.. Spring fever is about to kill me.. You guys are really an inspiration. Jeanne Marshburn

 

I love all your videos.. I have been a Texas Gardener for the last 20 yrs dealing with a harsher heat climate. Recently I moved to KY where the climate seems to be a little better for what I love to grow. your very inspiring. Lana Bisson

 

I LOVE LOVE all the videos that Wisconsin Garden posts. I am learning soooo much from them. I especially appreciate the great camera work meaning I don’t get dizzy with the camera moving around. Great job!! Mamey Brown

 

Congratulations! I just want to tell you I just recently found you on you tube and look forward to seeing your beautiful garden.I have also learned a lot as I am a retired teacher as well and now I have time to work in my garden. You all are so cute together .Thanks for what you do. Gloria in Santa Fe – Gbunniue1

 

Congratulations — on your dedication to sharing with everyone, on your great gardens, and on working together so well! I’ve really enjoyed the videos on your mason bees! – HcrisH200

 

Congratulations that’s a great accomplishment 700 videos, I don’t have idea how to edit a video, but I’m going to ask for suggestion, could you change the intro to your videos making it shorter? , because most of the time I skip it to go to the good stuff hahaha, anyway it’s great. You help me to practice my English writing too. – Monica Laguna

 

Congratulations! I know how thankful I am for these 700 videos, I look forward to 700 more!! Shannon Moffett

 

Congratulations on 700! Wow! Your videos are great for the first timer, but also those of us who have been gardening for years! I learn something new almost every time I watch.  Thank you for all of the great work you do for the rest of us – Jean Polkowski

 

Hi Lynn and Richard, You and Richard are so creative and adventurous, I love the video where you created a Berm out of leaves and grass clippings. I would love to do that. I can only imagine how rich the soil is.  After viewing many, many videos I saw your neighbors house. That’s why you two are so interesting, because you utilize the space you have. And it’s so creative. I. E. the berm. You and Richard are very positive. I absolutely love Richards sense of humor. You both are perfect together. I look forward to the next video. 700, that’s awesome, I’m trying to locate your beginning videos. I don’t want to miss out on anything. We are looking forward in meeting you both, July 8th can’t come fast enough. – Sincerely, Debi Gerhardt

 

I found your berm video on YouTube the other day, and have been watching your videos constantly!! I so enjoy gardening myself, but am no where near the gardener you are! Thanks for making the world a prettier place, and I’ll do the same in southwestern PA! Warmly, Jennifer Wooley

 

Hello.  I just watched your video on propagating African violets and using the wick method for self water.  Your video was very interesting and informative.  Thank you as I am just starting out with plants.  I have a limited amount of space in the rest home I am in…I really am glad for your video.  Thank you. Sincerely, Zita Smith

 

Hi Lynn and Richard:  I just wanted to say thanks for attending the Environmentally Friendly Landscaping Techniques class at Lynden last week, and to let you know that I just checked out your website.  It’s fantastic and WOW, that’s a lot of great content. . . . you two are busy-busy!  I’ve got the site bookmarked and plan to visit it often for tips, techniques and sheer enjoyment.  Thanks again. –Andy

 

Hi Lynn and Rick, Thanks for all the information on how you keep your flower and garden beds looking so nice.  I would have never guessed you put that many bags of leaves and shredded mulch down every year.  Wow!!!   I thoroughly enjoy the videos you and Rick make together sharing with me and all the other viewers all your flowers and plants.  I enjoy gardening and my wife has no interest at all.   Your video’s make me feel like I have two gardening friends that get the same enjoyment I do.  I just want to say thanks. – Tom Dreas

 

Just watched your video on transplanting African violets and thank you very much for the great tutorial. I must say in addition to being educational, I also had to chuckle about the soil/dirt exchange with your hubby, mine would not sweep a floor either!! thanks again. – Susan

 

Hi Lynn, I enjoyed the tutorial on the terrarium!  Thanks for the detailed explanation. I enjoyed browsing through all of the beautiful pictures that your husband made. Thanks again! SLC

 

Hi there! I just wanted to say thank-you for the treasure trove of information you have so pleasantly provided for the whole world. I hear you talk about the many people that write to you from all over, and wanted you to add Kansas City to your list of fans/friends. I am a beginning gardener and a groundskeeper for a condominium complex in Overland Park, KS. and have learned so much from watching your videos. Keep up the good work. Thank-you for sharing, and may all your blooms be bright and beautiful!  – Stephen Valentine

 

Hi. I’M here in a little town south of Boston called Middleboro Mass. I’m just relaxing, on vaca and stumbled upon your latest youtube posting on whiteflies. I really enjoyed it. You have a wonderful healthy garden ! Thanks for posting. Have a nice day and a great summer.  Stephen

 

I just discovered your videos. Great. I planted an apple orchard three years ago. I am a novice. I was hoping you might help me from time to time. – Steele Cooley Jasper Arkansas

 

I was watching the seed video, and remembered that I wanted to send you a picture of my hoop garden. Tomatoes are going still and the lettuce and collards are happy. And I noticed we have the same dining room set including the chairs. Warm regards; Stephanie Marder

 

Just wanted to say Thank you love watching your channel congratulations keep them coming. – Sherry Ades

 

Hi Lynn. My name is Sherika And I am From Alabama. I watched your YouTube video on Colocasia Elephnat Ear plants. I love these flowers and went on a hunt for some today. Lowes did not have any available in my area, but I did see a woman on ebay selling the seeds.  My question is, will the seeds produce the flower without the bulb? I know nothing about flowers, just moved in a home and want to make my yard beautiful with these flowers. Any information you may have would be very helpful.  Thank you so much.  – Sherika Nicole

Hi there Lynn, I just watched a YouTube video that you made (I think it might be 2011). You are the only one with this video, though I have seen one internet posting like it. I was wondering if it turned out? And if it did how long did it take to become grape juice? My favorite grapes are in season now and I will be trying this really easy and no fuss method, but just wondering if you could tell me what its like on the other end of things when its complete. J Thanks for your time. Blessings, – Chesca Cox Prescott Ontario Canada

 

Dear Lynn, Thank you for your quick respond. I watch all of your garden videos every evening and they are just so cheerful and fun. Love them! I love gardening and when i watch your videos they just make my day. Keep up the amazing job you and hubby are doing. I don’t drive so i would have to arrange a ride to go out by you. I will call you early next week. I have a question I have a beautiful magnolia tree and I would love to propagate it but don’t know how. The tree is 5ft tall i planted it like 10yrs ago and it’s been growing real slow. I purchased some tree fertilizer spikes and hoped it would improve the growth but nothing. That following spring i did get many flowers. I found these tiny narrow cones all on the ground under the tree. I was wondering if these could be the seeds? I will bring them with me when i pick up the raspberry plants. And hopefully you can identify them for me. Like I said I am a garden beginner and have so many questions. I am so happy that you are out there and I found you to help me. Thank’s again. Sanjuanita – Janie is in English for Sanjuanita.

 

Hi Lynn, I watch your videos and love them. I have had perennial gardens in NC and PA. The garden I currently have I inherited from a Japanese woman who was the previous owner of my new home on Holland mountain in Sussex county in northern NC. She passed away and her garden was neglected for 4-5 years. The amount of phlox i gave away was unreal. Today I watched your video about the Japanese peony and I plan to buy some. I purchased numerous perennials from bluestone perennials in Ohio this spring. I love their packaging in coconut holders you plant in the ground, no fussing with roots. Our county does not have a garden club so i will enjoy watching your garden grow and try your tomato plant formula this May. Thank you. – Rebecca, Lake Stockholm NJ

 

First timer here!! Hello! What a joy you are! My friend told me to use YouTube to learn things. So I looked up how to winter my elephant ears and there you were! What a blessing you are to me. I planted three elephant ears in pots for the first time this year (Freeport, IL) and they are beautiful! Think I will send a pic for you to see.  I am going to share them with my Garden Center friends at work. Thanks so much, I am watching you instead of tv today on my day off. I work at Menards Freeport in the Garden center and you will play a big part in my education!!! Love ya for that!!! I also went to your hubby’s art gallery….WOW so pretty. So with that being said I would love a free art. Thanks for that too. I picked out DPC2394, Driftwood Bouquet. Warmest wishes to you! Your newest #1 Fan! – Patrice Dilworth

 

Thanks Lynn, just found you on YouTube. Nice idea about the powdered milk for blossom end rot. I do hydroponic, basic Kratky type but still need to play in the dirt. I have suffered with the end rot, (the tomatoes, not myself) and sprayed on the toms tablet but I thing I like the idea of the milk powder better because with the tums you have to experience the rot before the cure, milk powder amends the soil before the rot has a chance to form…Thanks, have subscribed.. – Nige

 

Hello Lynn, I have been watching your videos on gardening. I love them! I love watching your garden tours and seeing that you also have plants that come up here and there or sometimes don’t make it through the winter. I live in northern WI so I have a short growing season. I love being outside listening to the birds and working in my gardens. I have been gardening for about 26 years, started with a bucket of hostas from a neighbor, and I was hooked. I live in the city with a double lot, very little grass, every year more of it goes for gardens. My next project is a dry river bed. Keep those great videos coming!!! – Nancy Hinz

 

Hello again. I was laughing my head off about the football incident. How funny! I just wanted to say I watched so many of your videos last night. I fell asleep enjoying each and everyone of them. I like the one using the 2 liter bottle to make a terrarium. I bought a container from the nursery for half price which was $45.00. It already had two avocados on it. He has lots of fruit trees in the back yard. He also has lots of martin bird houses too. He is a country boy from Louisiana. I’m from Killeen- Fort Hood, Texas originally. Anyway, your videos are awesome. I plan on camping out with my laptop again tonight to watch more. I even focused on the art work from your husband. I will go back and review those again. I am so happy to have found your website and your YouTube channel. Have a great week!  Excuse any errors. I’m actually taking a break from clearing out my closets and dresser drawers of things that I never wear or can’t wear. I have too many unnecessary items that should be given to those that can use them.  Okay, take care. – Natalie

 

I am from Karachi Pakistan, One day before yesterday i saw your on garden programme on YouTube. Your plants stem is very thick and healthy and leaves were very good. So please advice me how to grow them, Thank you very much. Best Regards, – Muhammad Ashfaq

 

Lynn – Love watching your YouTube videos so much. Our climate is different here in the Sierras, but many of your food drying video are so wonderful to watch. And your husband makes me laugh he is so cool. – Beth California in the CA Sierra foothills

 

Lynn &amp; Richard, Your videos have inspired me more than you’ll ever know….I discovered your videos about two years ago. They were so calming watching two people talk and work in their garden. After about a year of watching, I started to feel peace creep back into my life. My yard with all of its lush, and at this point, overgrown, landscaping was no longer viewed as a burden but as a haven to make new memories…But I’m happy once again. It’s your videos. It truly is. You both remind me that there are good people in this world. And a garden is an adventure that I want to have. Thank you for sharing yourselves and your gardening adventures with me. I eagerly await every new video and watch older ones often. If you’ve ever wondered if anyone has been touched by your videos…yes they have. And it is me. I’m the one you were meant to reach. Meeting you both is on my bucket list. Hoping the blessing you’ve given to me is returned to you tenfold. – Heather Peters Findlay, OH

 

Thank you for your advice.  I bought the same package of Zinnias, and I am very exciting counting the days to  be outside and start working in my garden.  I grew up in Panama city, Panama, So I  still have a lot to learn about perennial plants.  I would love to see your garden and meet both of you. I will see you soon Thanks, Mirna

 

Dear Lynn, I recently came upon your videos on YouTube….Thank you so much for creating them! Thank you so much! – Megan

 

Hi, Lynn! Thanks for posting that video about elephant ears. I will now soak mine overnight and plant it tomorrow here in our Tucson yard. The temperatures have been in the 70s. I have a nice cool corner in the shade for them. My mom was born and raised in Superior, WI. She used to tell us California kids all the stories about the snow, the wind and ice covered lakes. To us, it was like she was from a different world! Visiting her parents in the summer, Wisconsin was one of the most beautiful places I’d ever seen. Take care, – Mary Partelow

 

Lynn and Rick, I love your videos on YouTube!  I always learn something as I am new to outdoor gardening. Keep up the great work and thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge. Best regards, – Marion

 

Dear Lynn &amp; Richard- I just watched the video and I must say that while we are not surprised that you love the Root Assassin we are profoundly grateful for your terrific and thorough video and sincere comments. Keep in touch. Once again, thanks.- Josh Kalter

 

Dear Lynn. I have been watching a lot of your videos and fortunately, learned a great deal.  Thanks to you and Richard for allowing us to come into your sensational garden. Please forgive me if any writing mistakes occur, I am fFrench Canadien but my grand father was born in the U.S.A.  He came to Canada with his father but his siblings lived in Jericho Vermont, and Massachusett. Best regards, – Lucie Deslieres

 

I watched video number ninety yesterday when you had some large trees cut down . WHAT a big transformation your lot has gone through YOU must be very proud LOOKS GREAT – Dot Thomas

 

Thanks for sharing. I love the way your husband and you share the information. I can tell your husband really cares about you and wishes to make this educational video perfect and informative. He keeps asking questions, adding some information and even made conclusion in the right time, that really can consolidate and impress our knowledge of growing nice tomato with your secret method. I like the way you and your husband talks which is so natural, relaxing, enjoyable, and the most important is CARING and INTERACTING. (Sorry to have some comment almost a year ago saying that is irritating. I totally disagree that type of comment and this type of comment is definitely irritating)Beautiful couple Lynn and Richard, thank you so much for your sharing and effort again. – RoseGreenTea

 

I had so much fun watching, my mom use to put up Jam just like you.    You two really make me smile hearing the two of you joke around. – Mark Sears

 

I was waiting for this video. I am living vicariously through your videos lol. It is so hot here in California that I don’t feel like going outside at all. The most I do is water my plants. By the time I come inside I am all sweaty, gross and need a shower. Currently I hand water everything. I am thinking of investing in watering system so I am not uncomfortable on the hot California summer days. As always your garden is amazing and beautiful. Everything is looking wonderful. My daughter had a question about your credits. She wants to know why you have a picture of Lynn when she was a child. I figured I would ask the question for her since she always watches “my gardening videos”, as she calls them, with me. – JulV Wildcat

 

So informative. Thank you Lynn and Richard for sharing your garden experiences. I always get so much from your videos. – Ravenhairone

 

Thank you for sharing your beautifull garden with us. I always look forward to your videos and after watching them i run into my own garden to do some more work or just enjoy it, its looking beautifull this year.lady from Quebec. – Johanne Black

Many thanks for the great education on irises. I especially appreciated hearing about the bleach bath. Your new iris/hosta bed will be lovely. I couldn’t help but wonder what color your irises are? – Joy Clarke

 

Hi. I grew EE for the first time this year and they came out great ! Can’t thank you enough for this vid and feedback. I would love to share photos of them with you, if you’d like. – thanks again for your help. ~ blessings !- Diana Di

Love your garden. It is amazing. Congratulations. I am very inspired by your videos. Mariachi Chic

 

Hi Lynn &amp; Richard. It’s Bob from philosophy class. Great garden tour. Thanks! Here’s a favorite poem of mine from Louis Aragon’s Paris Peasant (paraphrased). Your viewers might like too:<em> “Those who have spent their lives traveling, Those who have encountered a multitude of climates, Those whose beards have been singed by the South, Whose hair has frozen stiff in the North, Whose skin is compounded of all suns and winds, The servants of smoke, The sons of tornado, Their footsteps forecasting earthquakes, When at the end of their journeys they return, A parrot perched on their shoulder, Still cling to one desire: To have a garden.”</em> – Bob Jebavy

 

Hi, My wife T and I just finished watching the 3rd installment for July 2016, the tour was unbelievable, you both have put so much time and thought into every inch of your garden. T, says God points and you dream of new looks for each area. And there are more invasive plants , that still have to be removed, the work continues. You inspire everyone who watches, it takes work sweat and time, but, look what you get when you finish. Thanks for sharing, we’ll be watching and enjoying. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

 

The sheer size of your property is staggering, it’s huge, we are always taken back, by the amount of effort, and work it must take just to maintain, the whole space my wife T says God gave you both green thumbs and joyous hearts, that never give up. We loved the tour, we know there is lots more work to be done , but, what a joy to see the fruits of your labor. Thanks for sharing, waiting for #3, be well. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

 

I love your ‘dandelion’ hair style! And I so appreciate your very instructive tips about gardening. Have learned so much. Thank you. –ScreeminMeeme

 

I so admire your dedication and “stick-to-a-tiveness.”  Can’t wait to see it at bloom time!!! – Rose Duke

 

I really enjoyed looking around your garden at all your specials accents. I also love how you and your husband work and play together in it*** I am a new subscriber and have enjoyed all your videos – Deezie

 

You 2 are the hardest working retired people I know. All your hard work sure shows, it looks great! Everything looks spectacular! Your garlic is fantastic, can’t wait to see the heads when you harvest. – Snookie65

 

Oh WOW, I would happily dine under your raspberry bushes. That is a jungle that us Aussies would love in our garden. I mean, growing raspberry is finicky here. You have to baby it and if it drops dead on you, too bad. Try again LOL. – Wildcook (Mary)

 

I wish I could forget the Forget Me Not- we bought one plant 2 years ago and it took over a 12x4ft flower bed filled with Lava Rock and in the shade- not easy growing conditions. I loved them in the spring, but had to rip them out after they turned brown- I just couldn’t handle the look of them. Good news is they came out super easy. Now I need to find some new plants to put in the shade garden for next year- your garden tours give me so many ideas- thanks! – JByrd

 

We just finished watching your July Garden Tour 707, the garden is just great, My wife T, says it gets better every year. You both put in so much time and love, to everything you do, we’ll waiting for 2 and 3 of your tour. Thank you for sharing, hope your 4th was enjoyable, get some rest more work to come. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

 

I like the idea of having two kneeling pads so you can stay on one and move the next one ahead! Much easier than getting up to moving the pad! Wish I lived closer to you! I’d be right there getting some raspberry bushes! I don’t think it would be worth the drive from Philadelphia PA. It’s so nice you two have a hobby (full time job!!) that you both enjoy. – Susan Mandeville

 

I can’t imagine how sore you two must be. My back hurts just watching!! It will look wonderful when you get it planted up. I can’t wait to see. – Amy G’Schwind

 

You guys are awesome! I really enjoy watching your gardening adventures. Thanks for sharing. – Travis Ward

 

How dare you work in the garden and not record it, lol! Lynn- you have such a cute, light colored outfit on- how do you keep it so clean working in the garden!?! – JByrd

 

I just love you guys…what a great job you do to educate people….and hahaha….I think I was that viewer but all is forgiven…lol…can’t wait to see what you do with the space!! – Laura Tannehill

 

Stumbled upon your channel and so glad I did! I love gardening but not sure if am any good … but I love it, so who cares. I love to move and experiment and add and give away plants from my garden. I can’t wait to continue through your videos! Great idea on the umbrella! – Heather Jewell

 

“Richard, let’s get on with this!” I laughed so hard! Loved it! – Heather P

 

“Should i time you?”….Lynn (dirty look!).. HAHAHAHHAHAAAHHAAAA..Richard…that lady deserves a dinner out tonight! – Tim

 

Hi, Lynn My wife says God has blessed your relentless little heart, you going after those raspberry and thistle bushes, we didn’t know there was a path until you cleared some of the bushes. Thanks for sharing, get some rest you deserve it. Blessings!!! – Fred Woods

 

My husband wanted me to ask you what kind of Cannon Power Shot Series camera was it?  There are lots of them but we couldn’t figure out which one you had.  What model number was it?  Also, can you see what you’re video taping when in the sunlight?  You can’t with ours and it makes it hard to tell what your recording.  Looking for another camera so this info would help.  Congrats on your videos.  It’s so nice you get to do it together. – Fay Favored1

 

Thank you for sharing…I live in Illinois, and most of my garden friends ( southern area) have earlier gardens..So happy to find you..Thanks !! – Larieta Fort

I Live in Milwaukee. Your garden is beautiful. The peonies are so full of bloom. I have three peonies bushes that hardly bloom this year. When there is not much bloom do you think I should divide them. I read that they never need divided, I know most plants need divided when they don’t have much bloom. They all are ten or fifteen years old. – Norma Jones

 

Rich, I would love to see a graphic how to video, only out of curiosity . Thank you both for all your videos, I think I have followed you from day one – ApirlRain

Beautiful doesn’t cover the loveliness of your perennials. What kind of mulch do you use? I have to buy my mulch as we have no pickup truck to transport loads of mulch. When it gets rainy so many mulches mold. Thank you for your posts. Just joined and eating all of this up. – Droycraft

 

Very pretty yard you folks have there…….Tracey from Missouri – Tracy Cooper

I’d like to give you more than one thumb up! I love your garden accents! The red archway , the Tree Peonies, and just everything! I can’t wait to see what next you’ll paint!

I really enjoyed your video I called dirt and soil by either name intermittently – Angela Schans

 

Wonderful video, thank you! When I spread leaves over my garden patch the 15mph winds blow them back onto the grass ! Don’t you have that problem ? – Rosemary McGrenera

 

Thank you for your response! I will be adding leaves to my garden beds this year! 🙂 Please don’t take this the wrong way but both of you are like grandparents to me even though you’re really too young. I’m 22 and have not had a relationship with my grandparents since they all live in Ukraine so every time I watch your videos I think how cool it would be to have grandparents like you. Love you and your videos. Keep up the great work! – Flourish Ever After

 

Good videos I think you all make veg gardeners look at growing some plants for beauty and weed control and soil conditioning. it did me. – e Buzz

 

Your videos are amazing – they are the BEST!! – Nancy Ewell

I went out and deadheaded my peonies today.  Thanks for the information. They look much better.  Thanks again. – Judy Homesteader

 

This was very enjoyable!!  you two are characters.  I liked the matching yellow sweatshirts in the beginning too – Rachaelkoger

 

Cute video you two!  i am currently plagued with poison ivy and not sure what to do.  Thanks for making my day a little brighter! – Campingfool59

 

I enjoy your videos.  Since I’m getting more into perennial flowers now you teach me a lot.  I’m glad this vid was less that a half hour long.  When they are too long I find it hard to set aside the time to watch so I miss some of them, darn it. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. – Sandra Cerino

 

Thank you for sharing this information.  My 19 year old has just started to garden, she’s planted strawberries, herbs, and lemons.  She wants to do more and I hope the animals don’t spoil it for her if they start eating on it.  You don’t get many 19 years already wanting to have a garden.  We will use your wise advise.  When is the best time to add the netting?  She’s just now starting to see some strawberries grow. – Regina Woods

 

I agree you can’t get enough plants. Enjoyed your new addition to your plant collection. – Krishna Islam

 

Keep up those very entertaining &amp;info. Vids. And Merry Christmas -Happy New year-Go Pack .- Richard Bushy

 

Beautiful gardens, even at the end;-) I am building my yard very similar to yours on the other side of Lake Michigan in zone 5-b, but I have a problem…BINDWEED, been pulling it for years, used a orange oil – vinegar spray, sheet mulched this spring with thick cardboard, new raised beds and 4″ of wood chips…STILL BINDWEED…Help me please;-) – Scott Voigt

 

Super video – I wish our whole world would try to learn more about each other and become more accepting of each others – likenesses as well as differences. I had thought you both were teachers – as was I – for 42 years in the same public school as a speech/language pathologist. Thanks so much for sharing what you learned – the other Lynn! – Pprrhh102

 

You guys are really brave OMG and also you to young guys look very healthy. – RandomPerson1024

Enjoyed your video on planting the bulbs from the cartons.  So, how did they turn out in the spring?  Is there a site I can go to, to see them?  Thanks, Susan from Alabama. – Bobbie Curry

One of our Wisconsin Garden viewers, Mamie Brown left a question this morning. “I LOVE your videos. This is not a gardening question, and I hope I’m not overstepping by asking, but can Lynn share some diet tips how she stays so fit and trim….”

 

I’d like to answer your complimentary question about my amazing wife.

 

First, I tease Lynn all of the time.  Partly because I love her dearly, keeping her off guard, guessing, and on her toes encouraging her beautiful spirit and smile to laugh constantly.

 

Secondly, I chase her around the house and every place we go together all of the time without mercy.  P.S. She loves it and sometimes she actually lets me catch her.  And as some men admit, it’s the woman who really controls every aspect of a life of love and lifelong friendship.  I believe every woman needs to be treated like a queen with constant love and respect they truly deserve.

 

Thirdly, we encourage each other to work out, in the garden as opposed to a gym, bending, squatting, lifting, dragging and moving tons of mulch, top soil and compost side-by-side.  And as she has written about in her first two of 3 memoirs, from dawn to dusk she has raised 3 children and a husband (title of her 3rd Memoir) while teaching K-3 full-time, preparing meals and unconditionally taking care of all of us, all of the time.  She rarely ever had time to be ill or feel un-needed.

 

She is very disciplined, most of the time, eating proportionate meals in spite of me teasing her that she eats like a bird.  After nearly 48 years of marriage she looks amazingly beautiful and I make sure to let her know how I feel about her beauty every day.  More importantly, she truly has the soul of an angel and is one of the most selfless and giving person I have ever met.  I’m proud she allows me to be her soul-mate. To think that just 4 years ago she reluctantly didn’t want me to film her planting her first tomato plant in the garden. Her reply “Who would want to see me planting a tomato?”

 

Seeing how effective she was as a classroom teacher, I knew she would touch the heart of those who see her as being a real person talking from the heart, no script, no ulterior agenda, as someone always willing to share what she does even while dirty and sweaty.  People now recognize her when we go out together.  During the filming of this video, a couple stopped by the Ozaukee MG booth and got all excited to see her.  Their initial comment was cute, “You look much taller than you do on YouTube.”  They expressed how much they enjoyed her videos and wanted her autograph.  Ah the life of living with a “Super Star.”  How fortunate I am to play in her world.

 

I guess it’s not really not so much about dieting compared to living a fairly normal but active lifestyle, having a loving family, friends, teaching, and of course lots of loving teasing.  Perhaps DNA plays a role but being able to love the body you’re in has little to do about being skinny.  I have yet to meet a woman who isn’t beautiful.  God doesn’t make mistakes.  The physical body is just a temporary shell we inhabit and who’s to say which shell is more perfect to aspire or model?

 

The happiest people I know enjoy who and what they are.  You have to understand I live with the sassiest woman on Earth, and each time I tease her, she teases me back tenfold.  We love being together and support whatever the other wants out of life.  We willingly chose to be inseparable. P.S. Lynn loves Sanders dark chocolate sea salt caramels but only eats one while watching a movie after a hard day’s work in the garden.  How cool is that.

 

Now Lynn’s simple answer to your question would have probably been very modest and brief, “I don’t diet, and I just eat proportionately and work out in the garden every day.”  While that may be on point, there’s so much more to this amazing woman.  Perhaps you can see why I love her dearly.  She is amazing to watch, observe and to serve.  I do my best to keep her happy and sassy.

 

Forgive my brief dissertation on Loving my wife and best friend.  Hope that gives you a clearer glimpse into the amazing life of living with Lynn – Richard

 

When I grow up I want to be just like you a gardener with a beautiful yard full of plants.  Joelyssa M.

 

I’ve been out of town on a research trip, so I haven’t had the opportunity to say…Congratulations on 600+ Wisconsin Garden Videos.  One day during a cold, snowy December Ohio winter, I was searching the best ways to propagate an African violet.  Sure enough I came across Wisconsin Garden.  From then on you had Sarah and I hooked!  We love your “old school” knowledge passed down from your family, and your ever growing techniques from your research…its a great blend.  Your humor along the way, your positive approach always brings a smile to my face.  There have been times when I’m in the worst moods, and you and Rick to a great job of pulling me out of the doldrums.  Many thanks for all you do and share.  You have made a difference.  You have been able to combine two loves of gardening and teaching and brought it to the world.  What an awesome thing!  God bless!…Scott Miller

 

I thoroughly enjoy this video Richard &amp; Lynn and CONGRATS on your 600th videos!! Your videos are captivating, inspiring, educational, motivating, and just sweet and lovely. There are days that I am not feeling well, I click on your videos and I get motivated to get in my garden. And, before you know it, I am outside in my garden getting the healing

 

I need and get well. I look forward to watching more of your videos in the future. Love you guys!! 🙂 W. C.

 

Congratulations also from Germany. I enjoy every minute with you in your great videos. R. Akelei

 

California is having a severe drought right now, I have water restrictions in place where I live in the Bay Area….My grass has all died out. I just have my Agave, Aloes, cacti and succulents….but they add a lot of color as well……in fact

 

Californians are having their lawns ripped out and replaced with drought tolerant landscapes….I envy your lush gardens!! J. Descallar

 

Cute video you two! i am currently plagued with poison ivy and not sure what to do. Thanks for making my day a little brighter! C. F.

 

Thanks for the tips as I live in the north east Scotland near the sea we have different climate but weeds travel just the same so i will try your organic weed killer tomorrow. J.S. Johnston

 

Great stuff! I’ve been taking a lot of video around my garden pond but have been too lazy to upload it. You’ve motivated me to share! J.B. Great ideas! I look forward to seeing how the two techniques compare. TX in UK

 

Your garden is so beautiful! I am so glad I found you. I had my first garden last year and have a lot to learn. Best discovery ever :). D. Caldwell

 

Beautiful garden ! I love watching your garden tour videos. Hope we could visit Wisconsin one day to see it in person. Anna C.

 

Beautiful garden! I love watching your garden tour videos. Hope we could visit Wisconsin one day to see it in person. S. Cerino

 

Thank you so much. We are new homeowners in Madison by Lake Mendota. Eager to garden both flower and edibles. I stopped watching to go pull some Garlic Mustard in its second year. Naively thinking what a pretty flower it was. M. Helen

 

Such a beautiful garden. It’s such an extension of you and Richard. Quite reflective of your wonderful personalities! How do you keep up with it? H. Peters

 

In Nashville, Tennessee strawberries are in season now (almost over here). Other berries, peaches and tomatoes coming in the next few weeks – yeah!! I plan to venture out some this year (my second one canning) and try tomatoes in different ways other than just canning plain and dehydrating them. Your gardening videos are getting me all excited. Keep them coming! D. Cans

 

So much to look at! Thanks for posting. U. G.

 

Beautiful garden! I would spend my entire day there. I’ll have to look for a few peony trees now. I’m inspired. Frugal C.

 

I’m going to have to try some plants I’ve never done before, like the Kale and eggplant and others. My daughter got me started on Okra late year for the first time. I love you both. Nina N.

 

I just love watching you garden. I have goldfish and watching them swim is so much fun! C. Bennett

 

A beautiful place to visit. If I’m every in Wisconsin I’d love to. What happens to the fountains during your winters? I’m sure they are drained until spring comes again. C. Dixon

 

You’re so dear and fun to watch because you seem so benevolent with your little seeds. Very inspiring! Thank you. Love the diatomaceous earth usage too! H. S.

 

You’re so dear and fun to watch because you seem so benevolent with your little seeds. Very inspiring! Thank you. Love the diatomaceous earth usage too! J. Lee

 

Very interesting stuff! The hubby and I will be looking into it. Thanks for all the helpful videos. M. Eutsler

 

What a beautiful way to honor your teachers memory. I know she very proud of you as a teacher and the amazing woman you are. This video warmed my heart. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Always a joy to see you both. Dee &amp; Kevin

 

You guys have the most fun trimming those branches;) Evelyn C.

 

What a nice way to honor your teacher! That was a nice bag you were using for collecting the weeds and debris as you worked. H. Chris

 

WOW how great is that!….and what a beautiful home! S. Woody

 

Oh thank you!! That makes sense!!!! I am going “replant” them then. My woodland area is leave mulch, it’s way different then my front yard slopes… I still also learning about how the sun behaves…. areas I think its full sun is actually part shade back of the HOUSE shadow!! A. R.

 

Thank you so much! I will try this. 🙂 E. Kurtak

 

Hi, Lynn and Richard! I live in Southern New Hampshire and my rhubarb is sending out flowers. I bought the roots from Home Depot last year just for fun and was surprised to see it flowering this year. Actually, even though I have some knowledge of plants, I didn’t know mine was going to seed until you mentioned yours in your videos. I have seen many places to cut it off for a good stalk harvest, but since I am not too serious about a good harvest, I will let it flower out of curiosity. Thanks for all of your videos! P. J. M.

 

Hi Lynn and Richard. We are here in Calgary Alberta Canada. Our Rhubarb just started growing but already has started to produce seed heads… I have a funny feeling it has to do with the growing season. Last year our fruiting trees, just like yours, did not produce flowers. Funny how we could live so far away but the plants are still growing the same! Everything looks so beautiful in your garden! Thank you for all your videos. M. Barciak

 

Thank you for sharing this information. My 19 year old has just started to garden. She’s planted strawberries, herbs, and lemons. She wants to do more and I hope the animals don’t spoil it for her if they start eating on it. You don’t get many 19 years already wanting to have a garden. We will use your wise advice… R. Woods

 

Love your videos love both of you also. E. Sullivan

 

Lovely video and your garden looks beautiful! I have just subscribed to your channel and Liked your video… W. S.

 

I love to watch your garden shows and as our winter is now approaching it is especially nice to see your garden starting to bloom… M. Acton

 

I always enjoy tours of your garden. Glad I am subscribed to your channel…I know you write books as well, so perhaps a recommendation on one of those as well. Thank you, for your time and talent. T. Eitzen

 

It is always a pleasure to be part of your WI garden family, very grateful for all your wonderful videos. May God bless your time and your efforts! K. Fotyfar

 

I just love Spring! Your yard looks fantastic. My Japanese Peonies are coming up, nowhere as big and full as yours. I only planted them last year and they were tiny plants. I have fingers crossed that they bloom. Love them! I think of you both every time I look at them. S. K.

 

Yalls garden rivals- the gardens of Europe, just perfect. S. B.

 

Hi Lynn. Your yard looks gorgeous! Happy Gardening. L. G.

 

Great tips…will be giving it a try this season. Thank you E. H.

 

This has been very helpful. I just bought two bulbs today because I really love the elephant ears. Had some years ago but did not realize I needed to lift up in winter…Thanks to you, I know no how. I expect I will have many babies for years to come! E. Hawkins Your gardens are beautiful so far! S. C.

 

Your gardens are beautiful.. Thanks for the tour. J. H.

 

Woo hoo another episode 😉 u made my day 😉 A. R.

 

I just subscribed to your blog….I’m so enjoying watching and learning. You said the lumber is copper treated…I’ve never heard of that. Is it pine or cedar? Of course! CCA.

 

Lol. I had no idea the C stood for copper. I did think it was a no-no for gardening…especially organic. This is why I appreciate people like you to keep the information flowing. I also bought the ingredients for your tomato planting mixture. Thank you again. D. Creager

 

I love the color of that plant . Please let us know the name if you are able to find it . I as well will try to I.D. it and will post on here. would love to have one . Great job on the videos BTW. E. F.

 

Hi Lynn, I’m from IL, and that is a beautiful Coleus plant you have there, and the reason I watched your video is because I want to start growing some Coleus plants for the first time. so thank you for this info. M. R. K. You all are great. Thanks for all the information you give out! N. N.

 

Thank you for this video. I wondering if I could leave the Mason bee eggs outside over winter and cover the front with 1/2 ” hardware wire to keep the birds from eating the larva? The winters here only get down to around 28 degrees here in SE Texas. T. Green Very educational! P. B.

 

That was nice. It really comes across that you are excited about your little gals getting out and making your home their home. It will be bee (get it?) nice to see your updates as they move outdoors and get to working! Thanks a lot. H. C. H.

 

I just wanted to say thank you for this great video. This is the first year I have done seeds in my home and i wasn’t sure if my plants were becoming to leggy but mine look similar to yours. This was a great time to do the update. Thanks so much. T. Kelly

 

Love your video. D. R. I WATCHED ALOT OF VIDEOS ON TRANSPLATING TO DIRT, YOURS IS THE BEST….you have me as a watcher for sure,,,,,,gave answers all the others did not….thank you so much… Just love your little Gourd people, please do more, would love to see you do turtle one, or how you do it….I collect turtles, ones that make me smile, and yours really made me smile……just so clever…… C. Corrieri

 

Hello Dear Lynn….I did some cutting on last years growth on my perennials yesterday…oh my, and went to our local nursery Delphinium, Foxglove &amp; hollyhocks..and Gaura…I’m so bad…need to move some iris today…Hugs, Debra in Ma..zone 5. D.R.

 

One of the best explanations I have come across. Thank you for detailing out some very important strategies of working on this species. The only video where somebody has taken the time to produce very informative content. I shall take these methods back to me home on my planet. Cheers my friend. Love and happiness. W. T.

 

Very amazing useful idea to recycle and convenient, thanks…Cool guys, very inspiring, love it when u get us to the mood of this beautiful season. Thank u! K. F.

 

You are very good at explaining things. I keep hearing a bird in the background……….possibly a cockatiel? You love plants and birds. They both bring much joy and interest to life, don’t they? 🙂 U. S.

 

Thank you for sharing your knowledge! W. Judy

 

I watched you plant peony seeds, I followed your video and so I did the same thing…I live in Canada and the weather has been 60 degrees and hopefully better this weekend. I enjoy your videos. L. W.

 

Help! I am a very beginner gardener, I didn’t remove last year veggie scraps or wood chips. We have recently tilled them into our garden.. is all hope lost?…Thank you for the advise and Ray of hope! I was hoping the beginning of my gardening days weren’t over already. LOL S. D.

 

Very informative. Thanks for the video. D. Downunder Thanks so much for the information. Now I know what is building the “mud” tubes on the mason used to build my home. Also nice to know I don’t need to be concerned about being bit. N. W.

 

Love this! So once again you’ve peaked my curiosity. I just watched a few more videos on this and I would love to try it! Can I ask where you got the houses and the bees? Also, would you leave these out all winter or harvest the cocoons and store them in the fall? 🙂 C. A.

 

Hi I have only looked at a couple of your videos they are very good. I live in Cairns Australia which if you Google Cairns Australia we are on the Great Barrier Reef. My climate is very tropical. I look forward to viewing more of your videos F. Inglus

 

Hi, my brother name is Matthew. Me and him LOVE your videos. J. M.

 

Above video really helped me. Fortunately I was trying to breed mushrooms in Indonesia. In Jokjakarta central Java.

 

Thanks tutorial. C. Pras Just a new sub to your channel and am enjoying it very much, you give me such great ideas. From Wisconsin too. S. Woyczik

 

Yea! Spring is there! Always love your videos. F. G.

 

Lynn, I am so surprised to see you planted Burrows tail outside and overwintered it in your Northern winters!!!! WOW! I love burrows tail and did not think in my zone 5b S E Iowa area it could take our winters! You have really impressed me with that. I will have to buy some to plant outside. If I can find it. Thanks to you and Richard for feeding our gardening souls through winter! 🙂 S. Poole

 

Dear Lynn and Richard thank you so much for the Liatris seeds you sent me got them today they will look so pretty in my area. M. A.

 

Thank you so much for sharing — I guess I never thought you could do that — but it IS important! Thanks for sharing the ‘how-to’….Lynn. P. P.

 

Pallets off bagged soil? Man, you are a serious gardener! I like that, very much! I am still saving for my retirement, So clean bags of soil and soilless media are out of my budget. I am forced to go to the Green Bay Yard Waste and pick up compost from their piles and mix my own soil. They’re pretty good about seasoning it, bringing their pile to temperature, though. It takes an extra year to build a nice soil for food plants, but it is all part of the gardening journey. Nice video. Q. E.

 

Great! I should send this to some friends-LOL S. Shah We’ve got an awesome review by our friends from Wisconsin Garden. R. A. S.

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We have exceeded the previous snow limits here in Boston, Ma and I missed the Flower show here in Massachusetts plus we are getting more snow this weekend so this made my evening as I sat sipping tea. V. Solo

 

These videos give me so much good insight for my garden. I hope we continue to see more. Thank you Lynn and Richard!! O. S.

 

Can’t help it I keep watching it over and over: Amazing feeling of excitement knowing spring is just around the corner, your video is amazing as well helping us to be in the mood:) thanks guys! K. F.

 

If you want to come see my channel I’m 13 and if you don’t want to you don’t have too. P. E.

 

Great video. Good job, Logan. It’s so great for kids to have time with grandparents. We are looking forward to see how his plants progress. S. M.

 

Great project to do with the kiddies……Logan is a winner! Hope his plants germinate! S. Mandeville

 

This is so cool sharing one of your passions with Logan. The hands on projects like this will be etched in his memory of this moment like you two have with your dad Lynn and Rick with his grandparents. The relationship you two have with your grandson is wonderful to see. 🙂 W. M.

 

I agree you can’t get enough plants. Enjoyed your new addition to your plant collection. K. I.

 

I just subscribed as I found your channel by looking at your tomato planting secrets then looked at your container garden video and I find them all quite fascinating that I seen as my son and I live in a apartment complex growing outdoor stuff on our patio, F. M. I’ve been looking for this recipe for so long. Thanks Lynn! I. F.

 

So much info. Really appreciate it all. Have plenty of banana peels, but don’t drink coffee. We use tea bags though. I’ve been saving my containers and started my seedlings from the advice you gave last year. The TP rolls really work. I used the containers like you suggested, but mine were from taco salads and pastry. Still watching … thanks. F. O.

 

Exactly what i was looking for. 🙂 K. Hammer

 

Heyyy you guys are so cool.. hey do ya still have some leaf that I can get? J. Lee

 

Love your videos we have no snow in England where I live in Wiltshire so far , but winter is not over yet isn’t it , love your videos. S. Fryer

 

Nice garden surprise Lynn &amp; Rick! I hear you on some garden products. I have been whining about my cheap garden hose, now, when I am done watering. I am saturated. Investing in a good product is a great idea. W. H.

 

You guys are awesome! How do we go about getting one signed?! J. Miller

 

Lynn where did you get those heavy duty extra tall tomato cages….very nice! S. W.

 

Those look really durable. I’ll be buying my first set of equipment this year and I definitely will go the durable route verses cheap. Just last year I had bought a cheap rake and it the handle broke apart from the rake within minutes. Love the idea of the apron too.. I’m always looking for stuff or the kids pick it up when I have my back turned. R. Koger

 

Fantastic bunch of garden tools! I know you guys will give them all a true workout. I’m excited to hear a review on the handheld sprinklers. I can’t tell you how many we have purchased over the years. If we are lucky they make it through 1 season. I will go check out their site. Love that they are from WI too! Snookie

 

Love the turtle bobble head. K. Aragon

 

I love your guy’s informative shows, and your husband’s sense of humor! I’m in NW Wisconsin near Eau Claire. Going to start our first gardening experience this year at our new home. I’m studying up all I can during winter right now. I haven’t seen anything in your video’s on hydrangea, do you happen to have any at all? Let me know if you do. Rachel Rick is always entertaining! C. Dahl

This is one of my favorite episodes. I love your little spirit dolls. They are very unique individuals. Would you mind if I were to try making my own spirit dolls in the future? I am wanting to try growing some gourds this coming summer and now have an idea of what I would like to do with them -besides birdhouses. Kim H.

 

Thank you for sharing all the wonderful info on gardening. Evelyn C. My wife like to see your videos for growing green and flower. Thank for the videos. G, Bomba

 

I live in the Netherlands and am a first time gardener. I had a terrible tomato crop this year due to rain. I will have to cover them with plastic next year. Could you burn the dead tomato plants and use the ash for plant food? What did you do with your green tomatoes? Fry them? Make chutney? L. Casey

 

Such adorable art projects. I was thinking wow that’s a lot of feathers from your Cockatiel….. So cute you collected &amp; saved her feather over the years……. E. C.

 

Amazing Forensic study of your garden, I have wanted so much to hear other gardeners winter thoughts. I think winter scapes are fascinating and glad to hear you leave some plants uncut and smart reasons behind that. No other garden Youtube show talk much about tis very important information. i live in Vancouver area so called lotus land ,we use mulch here too for soil improvement and have been out shopping plants perfect time of year to get 70%off T.

Oh I wish I could be there right now . Beautiful snow. We are 35C hot in Sydney now . Love your garden and Wisconsin since watching your bids. A. C.

 

Hello my gardening friends, Lynn and Rick. Just want to tell you how wonderful it is to still see and hear your wonderful videos. Can’t wait till spring when we can once again enjoy Gods beauty and creation as we once again plant and grow. You are an inspiration to me. Thanks and happy New Year. H. Kesler

 

This was one of your best videos, please show us how you end up trimming your fruit &amp; berries. Again loved every minute of this one, I also live in WI, so I learn a lot from you! M. Two Great paper pot making video. Thanks for sharing. Mr. G. P.

 

I live in North-West Ohio and our neighborhood is under attack with rabbits…I have fought them for 5 years now but am now doing raised beds with protective wire mesh on the bottom of our boxes. Hope that helps me next growing season. Thanks for your videos. A. T.

 

Your videos helped me a lot this year, I’m thankful that you provide us with your knowledge, I wish you and all your love ones a very merry Christmas! God bless you all! F. Blanquita

 

I know this is totally off topic… but… Richard, what camera do you use to video all of these cool YT segments with Lynn? could you recommend a cheap good simple camera? (I’m nearly 70 and on Social Insecurity) Could you two do a video on cameras and shooting tips? How did you get so many viewers and those great angles? J. Peck

 

Enjoy the interaction between you two. More indoor video please. You still have any indoor avocado plants? E. C. I like you guys. You are fun to watch. Thank you! D. Orman

 

Love this post. Thanks for taking some to kindly educate so many! Ag Literacy Peoria County

 

How appropriate, a year ago I was looking for videos on how to propagate African violets, and “met” you and Rick. Now I need to divide some of my African violets a year later, and this video appears. Wisconsin Garden rocks!… We have the same watering can! I bought mine about 25 years ago from Kmart for some of my first house plants I had in my bedroom. That is when Kmart ruled the roost. How things change over time. S. M.

 

Hello. Florida here…grew Zinnias from seed packet, but this year I collected the seeds easily from all the spent, dried flowers, and have about 100 or so seeds to plan this coming spring. QUESTION: My zinnias grew so tall that they mostly fell over and had to be staked high. HOW DO YOU keep your pretty flower erect? Do you use twine, etc? Curious. Thanks for your video. J. Cante

 

RE AFRICAN VIOLETS – Joann Yelton

 

Glad to hear you’re starting with 4 beautiful violet plants. When you keep them in on a window sill, consider turning them around several times each week so that they don’t get leggy competing for sunlight. If your grow light bulb is LED set the height so it casts evenly over your 4 plants. They don’t throw off any damaging heat. The same with a full spectrum grow light bulb except you may have to raise it so that the heat intensity isn’t so hot that it starts to burn the plants. While we switched to LED, when we used bulbs we had hooks on the edge of the bookshelf near our miniature violets so that we could raise or lower the light fixture accordingly by using the back of our hand to test the proper distance that still casts light over all our plants, but not so hot on your hand after about 10 seconds. Miniature violets are a bit harder to find but we notice several online vendors had these for sale if you’re unable to find them locally. Being tiny in comparison, be mindful of their size and the heat being cast by the bulb. Hopefully this is helpful and reassuring.
