¬†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

Plants, Plants, plants!

Football is over, and now I'm taking it for the team with the blog. As previously mentioned we have been setting up our seedling starter kits. After some deliberation we concluded that peppers and tomatoes will be the primary first wave /tier of seedlings that will be started. This is because they will be our first cash crop, and the larger the seedling the more we can charge for the plant. ............ Wow! We have found some heirloom suppliers that have an awsome selection of tomatoes, some of which we've never heard of, so I'm really excited ( strictly from a consuming point of few) about what these plants are going to produce. We've got "Shady Lady" , "Mortgage Lifter" ( should be a hit in this economy);"Frankstein Black" (Hmmmm, not goin there);"Hillbilly "; "White Wonder"; "Adventure";"Druzba", as well as the popular types like Early Girl; Celebrity;Beefmaster,Brandywine,Bradley,& Roma. .... As we mentioned before , a lot of our decisions for personal use are predicated on what recipes we like, and what we think is our canning capacity through to the next season. Roughly 7 months out of the year or 30 weeks is the period in which we need to consider our usage pattern, and what it will take to supplement our food needs through that time element. ... Vegetables are fairly cheap at this time, not quite sure why, other than the economy may have an impact on pricing at this time. However we're not interested in being luled into a false sense of security, some of last years price's were astronomical, and our climate changes are now too unpredictable....Tomarrow we will get into peppers, as for today we have now done a fairly good concensus of specialty seeds that we are going to purchase, and suggest that if you are considering taking this same approach ,you shoud have your list , or outline and seeds ordered no later than March 1st.
