    Vegetable Garden Tour Video - See how the master gardeners plant their garden | natashaskitchen.com

    Today I’m sharing something near and dear to me; a video tour of my parents’ stunning garden. I’ve shown you glimmers of it on Snapchat (@natashaskitchen) and Instagramย but here is the grand garden tour.

    We’ve been living with my parents for a couple of months now (while house hunting after selling our home), and we have been able to document my parents setting up their garden, witness what the upkeep entails, and filmย everything that grows there. My parents are master gardeners. They are amazing at what they do and I hope this video brings you beautiful inspiration.

    Click below to watch the (4-minute) Garden Tour:

    This video was quite a project for my husband, Vadim, who filmed it over the course of several days. He got up early to capture the garden’s morning glow to avoid harsh sunlight and put it together beautifully. This is a video we will personally look back on and treasure. I hope you enjoy my parents’ vegetable garden video.

    Thank you so much for watching!

    The grandkids are always rummaging through the garden and finding sweet treasures. My son loves the strawberries while my baby girlย is most drawn to the black current bushes :).

    Garden-4

    Haha and so am I! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Garden-8

    Here’s my very favorite spot in the garden – the space between the fruit trees and the grape vines. It’s even more surreal in the video because you feel like you’re right there!

      Hi Natasha, really enjoyed the garden tour at your folks place. Your parents are so young, which is wonderful. Do you teach your children, as well as their other grandchildren how to grow and live off of the land? It is so important. Also, do you ever travel across the Oregon border to visit with Aaron and Laura of Garden Answer? They travel to Boise quite a bit to shop. They are wonderful gardeners, as well. Also, I really enjoy your cookbook.
      God bless you.

      Oh my goodness, that was beautiful! I’ll never have a garden like that, but I wish I knew someone who did just so that I could walk through it. It’s so ALIVE and so abundant. What wonderful parents and what Hard Workers they are. I love your cooking videos Natasha and this was a real treat too. Hugs to your whole family. <3

        Hi Dominique, we live in Idaho (the Treasure Valley) – we have all 4 seasons and it’s a fairly dry climate so we have to water well during summer ๐Ÿ™‚

      What an amazing video (both content, and quality of production)! My paternal grandparents “retired” to a 3-acre parcel of land in Michigan (from Illinois) and my grandmother (“Granny”) was from Lithuania. They had an expansive garden with may fruits and veggies (but not quite the magnitude of what your parents accomplish in their spectacular garden). Granny always shared her abundance of home-grown, organic food with family and friends, and did lots of canning, cooking and baking as well. She taught me how to can and preserve foods, how to grow organically, and how to compost. I really enjoyed this video, and it brought back some great memories of time on my grandparents “farm” before they passed. BTW, they remained active and gardening until their later years, and passed one week apart from each other, in their early nineties. Thank you for sharing this. It is inspirational, and frankly, emotional.

      P.S. I also just watched your 2016 Bloopers video, and love (LOVE!) that you two keep it real and funny. Thank you so very much for all you do and share!

      Congratulations to your parents. I know how much work it is that they are doing. I grew up on a 100 acre farm. Work was never done. I am sure they are happy to share their crops with their family. Mary.

      Love the beautiful garden! We have a very small plot of land but have done square-foot gardening and it works for our little family of 5! We got to grow a variety of plants in a tiny space. Do your parents put the greenhouse back on when in starts getting chillier at the end of summer? Or do they just leave it off? Thanks!

        Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ It depends on how quickly the frost starts – if it’s early, they do cover the cucumbers and tomatoes to keep them alive longer.

      Hi Natasha, Love the video of the garden. I am a garden enthusiast and I grow exotic tropical mostly from seeds such as Heliconias, Irises, Lilies etc.

      It is rather challenging to grow from seeds these exotic plants but soooo worth the effort and the hidden credit card statements for seed purchase. (My husband thinks I am reseeding).

      I really love your recipes as well. I got some really creative recipes for breakfast for my most critical tasters yet – My twin girls.

      Didn’t get a spit out, throw in the garbage response yet. So we are on to something here!

      Keep well and boy do you have gorgeous kids.

      This might seem out of context but if anything take it as a compliment. I recently gave birth and was wondering what did you do to get back in shape. You look very good, any suggestions concerning the middle section?
      Thanks!!!

        Hi Rita, thank you! You are so sweet to say so :). To be honest, I think the biggest thing for me was breastfeeding but after about 6 months post-partum, I did do a sugar-free diet (no added sugars except for natural ones like honey and maple syrup) for a couple of months which I felt like helped me get rid of my belly faster. Now it’s just eating in mostly and I did start jogging 3-4 times a week around the neighborhood in the mornings :).

      Thank you for sharing this video and it is so inspiring! Would you also share your parents advice how to dial with aphid on cucumbers. I have a little garden and this is my big problem, but I don’t want to use any chemicals. Thank you so so much!!!

        Hi Roza, I asked my Mom and she said they don’t really have a problem with aphid on cucumbers. It may be region specific – I would suggest calling your local nursery to see what they recommend. Sorry I’m not much help.

      Can I tell u the truth Natasha? My name is Natasha as well and that’s the only reason I probably remember your name that good๐Ÿ˜€. But that’s not the truth I want to share with u. Last night I went to bed at 2 and now it’s 5:55am but I feel like I need to write this comment. The reason I went to bed at 2 is because I was washing whole bunch of dishes from a party of 40 people I invited for my husbands birthday. And right now I really need to be sleeping instead of writing this comment because in the morning my husband and our 4 kids are going to Florida for a week vocation. If u would see me right now u would think I am drunk or had a death in the family but that’s not the case at all. I simply didn’t sleep for more than 5 hours for the last 3 night trying to prepare for the party then cleaning up after the party and yesterday because I needed to pack for our trip today (in few hours). By the way, tell your husband Happy Birthday! U mentioned that his birthday is around 4th of July right? My husband’s birthday is the 1st ๐ŸŽˆ. I respect and I mean RESPECT people like your parents who still in our convinience (get it from the freezer & put in in the microwave) work hard to provide for them, their kids, their grandkids, their son in law and I know many others with the REAL organic stuff and not just the label. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐ŸผThank u thank u and thank u for this video because I am trying to have a garden but as of now don’t have one yet. And right now I am crying because looking at your kids enjoy grandmas fruits, berries and veggies I know that Grandma and grandpa put a lot of work into this. Tell them thank as well. I don’t have a garden but I go to a u pick garden here where I live (AL) and I LOVE IT!!! There is nothing better than the real stuff that God created Himself and wanted humans to eat this way and be healthy!!!! But in today’s days we see laziness and excuses of “I am just too busy” , “I work”, or “I don’t have lots of land”. That’s a big lie!!! Why I say that? Because how many people out there that u know who don’t have a Facebook account??? That’s right almost everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ Well,?! How come they have time for that Facebook, Instagram, and many other things? I bet your parents don’t have one because they got no time for that! I want to tell my mom a big “thank you” as well because she has a tiny back yard and yet all her 5 kids, 3 son in laws, 1 daughter in law, her 8 grandkids and many more guests get to enjoy the fresh stuff of the vine. Thank u mom. And now my sister lives in a home and because she has 3 little ones, mom planted not only hers, but helped my sister get hers started. Do u think my mom knows how to send a video on a phone to me? No. Why? Because she does physical work and not finger (texting) work. I want to have a garden too because I want my kids healthy and also know that if u want it organic? You have to fork for it! I really hope I will have one next year after we will build our house and the busyness of the paper work and running to the bank and from the bank will all be behind us :). You have a sweet family! May God bless you guys! Don’t stop what u r doing. I make lots of food from your site and people are impressed all the time! When my husband will get up, I will show him this video and tell him : “honey, that’s exactly what I want!” ๐Ÿ™‚

          The first time I watched the video I had my phone on silence because I didn’t want to wake my husband up lol. And when he woke up I showed him with the volume. But what’s funny is that I did not know what u where saying the dirt time and I cried because I thought of my parents and how they do all of that when we r not there and when grandkids show up we think it’s peace of cake to have it nice and blooming. But the truth is there is a lot of work behind the science .
