          indoor garden help!?

          Saturday, August 20th, 2011

          I am growing thyme, chives, parsley, cilantro and basil in my kitchen, all but two are sprouting. I am very excited, this is my first time doing anything like this. I have decided to expand my little garden and would like to know what other vegetables and herbs I can grow indoors. I live in Arizona, so it’s way too hot to do anything outside.
          Any help would be nice.

            Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

            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 Farmer’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! –Betty 🙂

              Vegetable Garden in Phoenix

              Saturday, May 7th, 2011

              This is my first garden. I started the project thinking we’d just have 1 or 2 raised beds but it turned into something much bigger. Everything is done organically (no pesticides, no chemical fertilizers etc.) and “veganically” (without the use of manure, blood meal, bone meal or any kind of animal product). 99% of the vegetables are “heirloom” or “open-pollinated” meaning the seed has been bred true and saved for at least 50 years and will continue to breed true when you save the seed…as opposed to a “hybrid” which has generally been bred for appearance, shelf life, yield, disease resistance but rarely taste. A saved hybrid seed will not breed true to the vegetable you saved it from. My family and I built the structure. I started everything by seed, mostly indoors under a grow-light system. What I’m growing now: Tomatoes Peppers Eggplant Basil Squash Cucumbers Watermelon Cantaloupe Mint Green Beans Calendula (for tea) Tepary Beans Onions Garlic Indian Corn Strawberries Okra Tomatillo Sunflowers Parsley Amaranth What I grew over the winter: Lettuce Kale Rapini Broccoli Arugula Beets Carrots Peas Bok Choy Spigariello On an unrelated note, check out the band I’m in with my 3 brothers. www.kongos.com

                Windowsill Herb Garden & Plant Accessories?

                Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

                I have a small windowsill garden where I am growing a few herbs like basil and that sort of thing. I need a source for small potted plant accessories like miniature tomato cages or trellises because my herbs are getting tall and the garden center, nursery, Target, all those type of stores don’t have anything for small pots, only large garden plants. There must be a source somewhere for small sized garden accessories. I do not want to move these plants outside as I have many animals around that will eat them and I don’t have a yard to plant them in. I also don’t want to junk the pots up by sticking in things like chopsticks. I want them to look nice, just miniature versions of what one would find in a garden outside. I actually looked at a dollhouse website and found some trellises but they are really expensive! Any other sources would be greatly appreciated!
