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 🙂

          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
