Unrealistic Gardening Expectations

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Grab a cup of coffee or soda or glass of juice and join me in my indoor wonderland of green where I explain how to achieve realistic gardening expectations as well as show some more tips on successfully growing various organic vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, bush beans…and even potatoes! I’m having a great day today, but it’ll be even better if I could get you to take a few minutes to hang out with me. It’s always funner when you drop in. 🙂 ps: I promise not to throw potting soil this time, ok?

      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 🙂

        To The Garden

        Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

        It’s never too early to start little ones on healthful eating habits. Ask Nina and Jeff, two energetic mini-monsters who live in a garden full of wonderfully nutritious goodies. In To The Garden, these adorable little fiends cultivate a love of fruits and vegetables through fun-filled songs, rhymes and quizzes. “What is that orange thing buried in the ground?” “What are those red balls doing up in that tree?” They plant, hoe, harvest, and picnic their way to teaching kids the importance of fresh produce for a healthy diet. To The Garden makes small appetites grow monstrous for nature’s bounty.
