¬†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.

Sincerely,
Raul & Nora Rodriguez

IN the Deep Freeze!

Yep, Most everyone here and about have decided to stay in and stay warm , this snow is why we came south. We like growin not snowin. Last post, we talked about tools list, hopefully you have all the necessities, or now is a great time to go gather them up, thats if you can get to the store. Our roads are covered up with snow, and it colder than a well diggers butt out there, so we're opting to look thru seed magazines, maybe if we get really motivated we will do a preliminary layout, however thiking about what we are going to grow , what type of seedlings need to be considered, and when to start them, are our main focus. Got some great deals yesterday, with a local grocery store going out of business, everything off 60%, went to the canning isle got extra lids & caps. We have plenty of jars we acquired from yards sales over the past couple of years, something to be on the look out when the spring comes around. 74 days to official last frost April 15th , will be here before you know it.

Victory Garden, Organic garden

Our website creator has indicated that people love lists, so we've decided maybe his suggestion may be worthy. Depending on the degree of sophistication, and / or obsession you may have with this project. We will start with some basic thoughts on what we may initially need. Tools? Do we have them ? If not, what do we need? As much as it is important in fiquring out what we need to plant, some of our initial planning should be directed on what we are going to plant with. Most of your common garden tools come in complete kits, so a little web surfing should give a good consensus of what to use . I have a beautiful garden kit by Brookstone, that my husband gave me some years ago for Mothers day; somewhat expensive however the durability is uncompromising, and well worth it. List : Shovel____ ,Spade_____, Rake_____, Hand Trowel____,Measuring tape ____, Water Hose_____,Knee pad_____, Gloves_____,Gardening Hat____, Stake Pins_____,Tomatoe Stakes____,Water Bucket ____(for compost tea), Wheel barrow ____,Kitchen compost container ____,sledge hammer_____ Tiller___. These are most of the basic items that the average gardener needs. The tiller is optional, my husband hand tilled a 40x60 garden by hand in the beginning ( his Tim the Tool Man Years) , then the next year having it tilled professionally. It's going to get cold the next few days , so we'll start looking into seed starting requirements in our coming blogs, or you can get a head start by getting our ebook. buildavictorygarden.com
