Betty’s Trip to Farmers’ Market + Herb Garden Update — NO RECIPE

In this video, Betty gives an update on the status of her herb garden, picking a few tomatoes and showing some green tomatoes and pepper plants, along with her rosemary, sage, dill, tarragon, oregano, cilantro, chives, basil, and thyme, flat leaf and curly parsley. After that, Rick and I go to the Farmerโ€™s market to buy some fresh vegetables. I purchase banana peppers, jalapeno peppers, green bell peppers, peaches, yellow squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and new potatoes. I will be uploading a recipe tomorrow, using some of these fresh vegetables. I hope you enjoy the trip! โ€“Betty ๐Ÿ™‚

      @teflondon91 No, it’s just ornamental. Herbs, of course, are pretty immune to insect and other pests, and are pretty easy to grow!

      @Jesikka06 Hi Jesikka! I haven’t been to Kelly’s yet this year. I probably will go, because I’m anxious to get some fresh corn (fresher than from the grocery store)!

      @brunsi63 I have a recipe in bettyskitchen for deep-fried banana peppers, which is popular where I live. I plan to do banana peppers stuffed with a mixture of breadcrumbs and cheese. You can also use them along with green bell peppers in recipes that use those.

      @Stef6788 I buy most of my vegetables at the grocery store, but I like to get the freshest produce from the farmer’s market. For instance, corn will have been picked just that very morning! Most of the prices at the farmer’s market are a little higher than at the grocery store, but they do not have preservatives, etc., and the taste is much better. It is still early in the growing season here, so I expect that there will be a lot more to select from later!

      @Maggie131984 I have to admit that I have never watered the herb garden, except for a couple of plants that I added late. We had plenty of rain during June, but we are having a dry spell now–so I will probably do some watering. One nice thing about growing herbs is that they grow well in poor soil under poor conditions!

      @bettyskitchen Thank you Betty. I am a student and I am still trying to grow some herbs in my small apt. I have mint plant and a basil plant. You have inspired me to start growing some herbs. Thank you for the inspiration

      Have you ever thought of using reuseable cloth bags instead of plastic bags? It would be more environmentally friendly.

    11. metamorphicmuse Says:

      That was FUN! And WOW, you have a lot growing in such a small area. Also, that was a lot of produce! How would you store all of it, and how much time do you have to use it before it rots?

      Nice tomato

    13. JimboJitsu Says:

      looks good, great video thanks for sharing! Rosemary is more like a bush, ours grow a couple of inches each year… they can even look like they died and then shoot up some new growth in late spring. Looked like fun at the market!

      great gardening tips here..

      great video Betty & Rick! That makes me want to go to our Farmers Market right now!! Your herb/vegetable garden is adorable – I didn’t do a garden this year, but maybe it’s not too late for a few things!

    16. JoeHell67 Says:

      Hello Betty,
      yeah, that oregano is kinda tiny but it’s fighting! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      shopping at a farmers market is fun, isn’t it?
      you get local produce when it’s in season!
      The price (especially for tomatoes..) is sometimes higher but i like to support
      the local farmers/gardeners…

      great video!

      @JoeHell67 Hi Joe! It’s so nice to hear from you! Yes, I love to go to the farmer’s market. I’ve used up most of my vegetables, so I will need to make another trip soon! I *love* to buy fresh corn that is picked that very morning! My herb garden is coming along. Sometimes a plant will not be doing well, and then it will take off and grow like crazy. I keep cutting back and cutting back, so that it won’t take over! Thanks for commenting!

      I’m not quite sure what your secret is, Betty, but you have the look and energy of someone in his or her twenties. It’s quite remarkable.

      Wow you would pay much higher prices in Canada! My husband and I love to visit the farmers market, our boxer enjoys it as we get his treats there. They have such a variety of food from local vegetables to fresh fish, organic meat, and a large variety of ethnic foods such as Jamaican, Indian etc lots of local artists as well…they also serve a country breakfast. Happy Cooking Angela

      I could save so much money with these organic booth stands ^_^
      Thanks Betty for sharing this video!

      Hello Betty. I love your Trip and Tour Videos! ๐Ÿ™‚

    22. senoritascouse Says:

      Wow the cost of fruit and vegetables is much cheaper in the USA than it is here in the United Kingdom! Vegetables from the farmers market are a lot more expensive than those from the supermarket. x

      Great that you are supporting local farmers and growing some stuff yourself! Nice video Betty.

    24. clint0453 Says:

      Thanks again Betty. Glad to see you like to support your local farmers. I LOVE to go to the large farmers market about 15 mile from my home,,,, fresh peas , butterbeans, corn ,,and tons more.

    25. bettyskitchen Says:

      @clint0453 I will plan to go to our farmer’s market later in the spring. There should be more booths when green beans, corn, and tomatoes come in. Thanks for your nice comment!
