¬†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.

Out of the Deep Freeze

We're Back! O.K. we had a little break form posting. Actually we into reading through a lot of Seed magazines i.e. Burpees, Burgess , Kelly, and made a list of all the various vegetable varities that were appealing . This was a no peak list. So He made up his list , and I made up mine. Then we went through the common ground evaluation. For us , this helps with the overall selection process. Our main objective is to maximise our garden space with produce that we know is the best cash crop we can get for our return for effort. We've been doing this for awhile so lets give an example. Last year just for gigles & kicks we wanted to grow corn , now we knew that this took up a fairly good area, but we wanted "peaches & cream " variety of corn, and we thought we'll give it a shot. Well what the wind damage didn't get the bohemian raccoon that took up temporary residence in our neighborhood got. e.g. we are not growing corn this year. We did learn a valuable lesson , good staking is a valuble assest in protecting your plants Back to the list,one very unpleasant experience last yr. was the price of peppers WOW! They shot up like a 4th of July rocket, so we gave them some priorty this yr. , of course Tomatoes are always a great cash crop. A lot of this is covered in our book @ we have a whole chapter devoted to tomatoes. Some of selections were based on recipes that we like to make & can i.e. salsa, garden salads, and one of our favorites ratatouli, oh now my husband can make some dynamite ratatuloi, and its a great non meat entree. Tommarrow we are going to get started on seedlings , going to the Hardware store , to get some preliminary starter kits, and some seeds. Next blog , we'll get down to the particulars of what we are planting.
