We apologize for not keeping current with our blog in the Fall of 2010. Unfortunately, we had some devastated news that Nora had inoperable terminal lung cancer. We have been engaged in a battle to prolong her life since , a battle I am sorry to say, we will not be able to win.
As has been our theme throughout life , we endeavor to promote life. This book, and the attention given to it , has evolved out of our sincere hopes that our children, as well as those who read it, will strive to make this world we live in a more hospitable place to reside. We firmly believe that utilizing the companion planting process is by far the most natural compliment to growing food that nature intended.
Using heirloom seeds, as they were intended, insures the integrity of the species, as well as maintaining the availability that God has given man , not some corporate megalomaniacs , that want to dominate man to his own injury.
This text is for those who want a concise form on information, without having to pour over volumes of websites, and text books. We have already done this. We have successfully applied the information, and are more than satisfied with the results, we hope you are too.
In a world that increasingly will demand that we strive to help each other , this is our gift to you, we hope that you will derive some benefit from it. May God Bless , and keep you safe.

Nora passed away March 7, 2011. She will be dearly missed, her loving and kind nature a beautiful example of compassion for all she came in contact with.
Her courage, and tenacity throughout this past year is a shinning example of what someone of faith can portray, faced with dire reality. Words cannot express the sense of loss I have , however words within this book express the love with both shared , for things in common , and for our hope that somehow she (we) can leave the world better place for our being in it.

After a long stretch of pickin and a grinnin, we are still enjoying the fruits of our labor. The garden has produced well this year , we have had a fairly abundant crop, in spight of a fairly hot summer, and the flood of epic proportions.
We discovered what various species of tomatoes do well in the 39 varieties that we planted , and have a good yeild per plant data base to refer to. In addition we discoverd lots of receipes that have tantalized our taste buds through out the summer, as well as canned our favorites for the enjoyment through out the winter.
As of today we picked 4 lbs of heirloom tomatoes, and we are still averaging at least 15 to 20 lbs per week. Of course this will be coming to an end in about 2 weeks , depending on the 1st frost. We will probably start closing the garden down in 10 days, and making boocoo salsa verde.
