¬†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.

Tomatoe & Pepper Plant yields

Hey there, I apologize for no Blog yesterday, I had written it out almost completely;openned another window, went to verify some information,closed the window, and lost the Blog Draft. American Idol was about to begin, the stress of this soon to be replaced computer got to me and "we said ---- it!" .......So this will be a extra long Blog.....So yesterday our interest leaned to just how much are we potentially going to get from all this effort?. For those who want to know , the average tomatoe plant (indeterminate)will yield approximately 15 to 25 lbs per plant, so depending upon market conditions , and how well your crop produces , you could possibly realize $18 to $31 dollars per plant ( av . market @ $1.25/lb) remember we are talking organic , not the run of the mill devils apple. Taking into consideration last years drought conditions in California , and the impact that had on cost's , it is hard to saw what to expect this year, however with the undoubted rise in fuel costs to instill motivation to purchase the new generation of fuel efficent vehicles , the market will probably go higher. ......Back to Peppers, the average California Wonder Pepper will produce an average 10 to 12 peppers per plant so fugure $1 to 1.50 may be the market price per "organic" pepper i.e. roughly $10 to $18 per plant. So now you have a rough minimal estimate on what someone may realize depending on the quantity you may choose to plant within your garden . Something to take into consideration ,and that we feel is highly important , is the introduction of a Bill to Congress, i.e.Bill HR875 by Rep. Rosa Delauro on Feb 4th '10,this bill is an outrageous attempt to create a "Food Police" agency, which would beyond a shadow of a doubt, increase the cost of food by mandating expense administrative costs to every consumable item being produced with in this country. Every one in this country should read the bill, and voice their opinion to those who will be ultimately responsible for the decision on this Bill, sponsored by the wife of a major executive with the Monsanto Corporation. This bill will destroy organic gardening, Farmers markets, and small farm operations through out the country. It is insidious!....Don't take my word for it , check it out, and check it out thoroughly. This will take away the little Mom & Pop garden stands, and is strictly being pushed under the disquise of "food security".
