Mom and Dad’s Ohio Garden


Matt Adolph, shown here somewhere in Ohio with his mom, made a home video about his parents’ garden – his mom’s native plants and his dad’s vegetables – and I love it.

I came upon this video tour of the Adolph family garden when I was looking for home-garden videos to include on Good Gardening Videos. So far we have 48 video tours of home gardens, most done professionally for regional TV gardening shows, and we’re looking for more of these DIY gems by regular gardeners or their sons.

Got a home garden video or know of one? Here’s more about the videos we’re looking to feature on the site, and how to submit them.

  1. Inspiring video about your mom and dad’s Ohio garden. They are really encouraging to other garden lovers like me. I love landscaping and gardening. Specially I enjoy lawn mowing with my sit on grass mower. :)

    After watching the video talking about your Mom and Dad’s garden, I am truly inspired now to get and make my own garden already. I guess it’s about time for me to practice my green thumb if I have that thing. Thanks for sharing this post.

    If you are serious about gardening for wildlife, you need to keep the domestic cats out.

    That was a good video and I loved her garden.

    Yet, there are some good tips for aspiring video creators.
    The most popular videos on YouTube have an average length of 3 minutes. This means that the ideal length is between 2 and 4 minutes. Now, it wasn’t a marketing video, but it’s important to know that if you have not fully engaged your audience after the first 30 seconds, you’ve likely lost 33% of viewers; and after one minute, 45% of viewers have stopped watching.

    I think the video could have been shortened significantly and they could have had more views had they had a basic script from which to work.

    Video should be like photography. Draw me in. Tell a story. “A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
