Dave, I have been watching Regine's videos for a couple of years. I think she is one dynamic, productive backyard gardener and I love the way she breaks down the growth cycle of each plant and has strategies for dealing with each stage ie trim secondary vines or add fertilizer at this specific point etc. She does use inorganic fertilisers but minimally and only at certain points in the growth of plants not indiscriminately. The videos on organic vs inorganic fertilisers are very interesting. I am really impressed with her productive processes from seed sowing to harvest - she certainly grows a lot of veg for her small family!
