I like this stuff but my garden is my escape from all the technology. 

Adigun Forest says:

Chemtrails are just as much of a danger to plants as pesticides. 

Jesse Stay says:

Bummer – wish I knew you were there. It would have been great to meet you
and I could have gotten you into some influencer events.

The MORNING gardener's SHOW. says:

This is more expensive junk that you really do not need. he has grow a
garden for many years before this device. Now he tells you you need this.

Rafael says:

What about the WiFi radiation on plants? Granted that the transmission on
this is probably sporadic, there are demonstrations where micro greens
can’t grow when placed right next to a WiFi routers. 

Yvonne Hamilton-Williams says:

Thanks for sharing all the new technologies for gardening! Liked how you
showed emotion when you said your plants are your babies. That proves how
passionate you are about growing. Love all of your videos!

JuicingGardener (Sheryl Mann) says:

Love this show, John. Thanks for bringing it to us. I can see the great
value of these types of technologies. For someone like me with 175+
containers, the cost might be somewhat prohibitive to fully equip the
garden but using them in several areas of the gardens for info would be
valuable. I do love that you emphasize that NO technology will ever trump
GARDENERS INTUITION. 🙂 

Joe Feser says:

Glad to see you kept my footage in as the troll in the beginning of the
episode, you know, the traffic photo bomb guy :)

Awsome video. I like how you bring the expo to us so we can check out cool
stuff right from our homes. Your a huge inspiration to me and thousands of
people across the globe. Keep it up!

dertyMlQwerty42N says:

I love CES and I love gardening. As usual, thanks for sharing this as most
of the other sites only cover the gadgets.
Arduino mods with automated watering and garden alerts is the new game,
the censor tech arduino mods are so insanely cool. If you can use a
soldering iron you can automate a garden and make it connected to the web
for PEANUTS.

Pople BackyardFarm says:

Really loved this as a techie and gardener this is awesome! Thank you for
sharing this with those who couldn’t go 🙂 – Ruthie and Clay

Self Sufficient Me says:

Fitness is related to gardening… IMHO. That wifi moisture probe is pretty
cool – I see they’re not selling them just yet (pre-order). I’d love a
Parrot drone for my own videos LOL – an electronic pot with sensors for
nutrients, light, and watering… Jeepers! GreenIQ is a nice looking system
also but I think my garden will stay relatively tech free for now until the
prices come down. 

gernm18 says:

Really cool video. Thanks for sharing. It’s too bad not enough tech
companies getting into gardening. I feel like that says something about
ourselves. You have definitely inspired me. Did you see anything about LED
lights? or a good system? I recently got a LED bulb from taotronics. You
should do a review on it! It was only 29 on amazon. My kale plants really
like it.

California Gardening says:

Thanks for the tour of the new garden products at CES. Some of them look
interesting!

pesto12601 says:

95% of this stuff will never see its way to market…

Cash Johnston says:

Thanks for bringing all that information to us! It is all cool stuff. I
look forward to your install of that hub. 

Joe Feser says:

At 1:18. In my days CES / Comdex was all about “booth babes”. The hot thing
now is “fitness babes”. They are less offensive to society.

TechExplorer says:

Thanks John , enjoyed the Info.
I hope your doing Okay , you seem emotional at this event !
Thanks
Joe

Marlon says:

8:10, did he nearly cry?

Frank Davalos says:

Hey BrandonB mcpeat I can answer that one for u. Im a fan of john too and
ive seen alot of his videos. John believes in permaculture and that can be
youre best strategy. To keep the weeds down all you do it chop and drop
thats realy famose in the permaculture world. U nned alot of mulch that u
can create by cutting youre plants and putting them in the grownd or call a
lands scape company to give you free mulch to cover all youre ground. Plus
soon all that mulch will turn into rich soil ready for growing season.

ja hy says:

Great video Jon! I was just explaining these same concepts to some friends
so they could get into gardening while maintaining their busy lifestyle.
Now I can direct them to your video! I had thought about these concepts
before I knew they existed and had thought of even incorporating those
little drones to be able to scan my garden and use biometrics to identify
pests then pick them or alert me. It would help with pests while staying
organic. 

BrandonB McPeak says:

Hey john i know this is not tech related but i have a backyard that is
overtaken by weeds in the summertime im wondering how i would kill them
without using something like roundup or having to pull every single weed
by hand, ive been told to steak down black tarps on my entire yard to
suffocate the plants, which would also kill the grass, but would leave my
ground nice and plantable. would this work, or do you have any other
suggjestions? 

Candy W says:

John thanks so much for showing the new technology for gardening. If it
helps one person to get back to growing their own food, then it is all
worth it. Hope whatever is going on resolves itself soon. Thanks for all
you do :)

ANTAAM42 says:

LOL at the traffic guy !!

TheItalian Garden says:

That guy who just kept Video Bombing you lol he is so obsessed with the
camera!

Reem AlHabib says:

Hi Jhon, its Reem from Saudi Arabia. Im a fan and your my Gardening mentor
🙂
Im still waiting for your call as i paid twice through Fiverr but nothing
yet!! plz contact me whenever u can plz as my garden needs a pros help :)

34lespaul says:

What’s interesting is how John is able to know the product, and explain
what the heck the product is in a relatively short period of time.
Regarding these products, no thanks. But I still respect John and
everything he does. Got to admit, he puts in the time, and he’s passionate
about gardening. And most of the improvements I have gotten in the last
two years of watching his vids, are learned from John.

Billy Connelly says:

The sensor is a bunch of bull. You can “sense” the amount of water in your
garden by touching the soil.

rhom5180 says:

i didnt want big brother hacking my garden, dude, no iphone garden
goverment spyhack srkew the tchnology just gno how to gro 

Louaner says:

Can this israhelli corporation resuscitate the olive trees that the
israhelli colons have uprooted and devastated?

Dennis Verdonschot says:

Great show John, these products didn’t get any coverage on my favorite tech
sites.
Would like to see a show on your favorite non digital tools.
