      Indoor garden advice?

      Thursday, August 11th, 2011

      I want to grow an indoor garden with my 3 year old daughter. What are some easy plants to grow, veggies, herbs or whatever.. I’d like to grow tomatoes, but I’ve been reading up on it and it looks like quite the process. What’s best for someone starting out (and someone without a green thumb!) I’ve heard of using teabags in the soil to help plants grow. Should I try this? Any other advice?

      I’d like to grow everything from seeds, and I’d like to try at least 3 different plants (or more!)

      Also, I’m in Ontario, Canada, so there’s lots of sun in the summer, but not so much in the winter, spring and fall.. plus it gets pretty cold by the window I plan on using for sunlight.

      Thanks for reading!! 🙂
      Tony, I meant to give you a thumbs up, not a thumbs down! My finger slipped… 🙂 It’s a great answer!

          Kelly’s Vegetable Garden May 29, 2010 – Update 2

          Thursday, August 4th, 2011

          Hello everyone. This is a quick video update for my garden. Not much to talk about other than massive growth and lots of tomatoes popping out everywhere. I keep getting spinach, lettuce and broccoli because it has been so cool here. Today was our first day in the 80’s and it looks like it’s going to continue for a while which is good news for the garden. My next video should be a lot more interesting because I will have more to talk about. I couldn’t do any upside down garden this year because the fence belongs to my neighbor and he wasn’t too keen on me do it…. so I have decided to do something that I haven’t done before but I have always wanted to. In addition to planting a bunch more things in wine barrel containers, I’m putting together a hydroponic garden. I have been cloning plants for a long time but I thought it would be interesting to start growing them hydroponically and compare the growth using traditional methods. It should be interesting. I will try to do a video of the entire building process so stay tuned. In the meantime, happy gardening. Kelly

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

              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 🙂

                Kelly’s Vegetable Garden July 9, 2010 – Update 3 / Harvest 1

                Monday, July 18th, 2011

                Well, I figured it was time to do an update / harvest video. It’s July, 9, 2010 at about 8:00pm and I was harvesting tomatoes when I decided to do an update. As you can see, I am getting a ton of tomatoes and squash. The cucumbers and peppers are finally moving along and I should be harvesting them soon as well. Also, I have cantaloupe starting to form and hopefully my plan of setting them on planks across the wire cage will work…. We’ll see… All in all, it has been a great growing season so far and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. I still plan on doing so hydroponic garden but I decided to wait until the end of the season to do that. I’m also going to put in a greenhouse so with any luck I will be growing things throughout the year. Here in Napa Valley the growing season is very long and I’m going to try to make it a year around thing. I plan on recording the process of building the hydroponic system that I have designed as well as the assembly of the greenhouse so I will keep you posted on that. I hope everyone enjoys these videos and if anyone has any suggestions, questions or comments, don’t hesitate to post them. Take care everyone and happy gardening!!

                  How hard would it be to do indoor gardening and grow basic fruits and vegetables?

                  Monday, July 18th, 2011

                  for two year round?

                  How much space would be needed? How much would something like this cost?

                  I just want to have apples and berries (maybe melons) and salad greens, cucumber,s tomatoes, green pepper, carrots, celery and some herbs year round. Just a piece for breakfast and a vegetable salad for lunch and a vegetable soup for dinner, etc.

                  Thank you!
