¬†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.

Seeds & Seedlings, growing table.

This is the male input blog. After making our economic stimulus to the local hardware store. We proceeded to evaluate just what might be interesting to the new organic gardeners......In these tough economic times, most of us will have to consider if some of this is within our budget. So, I'm going to try to give a accurate spending squence for your evaluation. Since we are purchasing a lot more than is necessary, you'll have break some of these fiqures out individaully for your own application..... At Lowes we spent $94 dollars, however the seeds were $46, and with what we got; you could have planted 3 1200 sq.ft. gardens easily. Now since my reciepe for salsa has gained some notority,we will amortise that investment;in one small canning session, and still have plenty for entire 2010 Football season.....By the way, there's not going to be a strike..... We also decided to completely overhaul a new growing station, I looked on the internet, and wow! sme of these guys are really proud of there stuff, we came up with a nice 5 tier 4 ft. long welded rod/wire shelf unit ( 20"depth) for $79 dollars , and a 4 ft;corded lamp for $38 bucks , now that setup can start 288 seedlings, add another lamp, with ease,and we're talking 576, so if we decided to sell say 288 tomatoe plants 2 1.50 /plant we'd easily clear $288 dollars, and make 100 % off investment, not including our time, however the next year it's all gravey. You'll have to include 3 more Ultimate growing systems by Burpee @ $19.99......Now I can get back to my Super Bowl preparations, Oh when the Saints , come marching in, Oh when the saints are going to win!
