¬†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

Starting to purchase seed and amenities

After cross referencing our preference lists of plants that we thought would go well with our tastes within the garden, we went off in search of seeds. Our first stop was to Lowes Hardware,they had a fairly good selection of seeds , we were pleasantly surprised to find seed packets priced at $1.89 in many of catagories that we were looking for, verses the $2.99 or 3.99 that we had seen in the catalogs for the same seeds.... Most importantly there was plenty of stock, and we felt like we had gotten there before the rush..... Now that we have a fairly good cross section of seeds, we can concentrate on ordering the remaining specialty seeds that were not available. In addition we purchased a 72 pod seedling grower by Burpee for $19.99, 2 5lb bags of potting soil,some more individual seed starter pods. We purchased much more than we need , but since we are still experimenting with various type of plants we are commiting some of our resources to R & D. .... Back to the drawing table,we will start laying out this years garden,bearing mind that we need not plant the same plants in the areas that they were in last year. .....One big note! Before you start your seedlings , pay attention to the germination times, sinse they do not all have the same germination times....71 days to last frost estimate. P.S. we're alittle ahead of schedule, so if your just starting to read this,there is a 14 day window of flexability at present.That's if you are growing in zone 6 , if you are further south then this information is on time.
