¬†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

Seed starter innovation

  Sunday was not a day of rest, however it got warm enough  to venture outside. We cleared the exisiting gardens of debrie, and allowed for the ground to get some sun to dry off.  ... Picked out all the perinial plants that made it thru the almost finished winter ( we hope ) ...... Finished making the PVC frame for the mini green house/hardenning off enclosure......... 


                                                                                                                                                                     NEWS FLASH! The highlight of the day (actually evening) was discovering that Dole mixed fruit jello  4.3 oz cups, will fit over the" Mousse Temptation" containers *(previous BLOG) to provide the nicest stand alone seed starter, talk about a green epiphany. Totally awesome! ( we got to start posting pictures). ..... So, now we have 2 excellent rationalizations to have our desert and our garden too....... Time to start sharpening your tools, pulled the tiller out and need to get the flat tire fixed, then off to the repair shop for a maintenance  tune up ( used it alot last year tilling other gardens beside our own).

  Our1st batch of seedlings are now getting their  next set of true leaves, so our next step perhaps this weekend will be to transplant into larger peat planter boxes......... It is now T-minus 45 days to official last frost, however we are going to add 7 more days , due to this extreme winter for now.
