¬†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.

Selecting Cash Crop Plants

We've going over what the best yield per plant can be, i.e. Tomatoe & Peppers. Of course all of this is contingent on how the weather is going to be, and the quality of our care for the garden itself. ... That in mind, we can expect an average yield for a indeterminate tomatoe plant to be somewhere in the range of 15 to 25#lbs , per season, and the yield of a bell pepper to be somewhere in the scope of 10 to 12 peppers per plant...... That being said ; we now have a reasonable projection of potential gross profit margins depending upon the price per pound within the market place. Let's say the average price per pound for organic tomatoes is $ 1.25/lb, then we can reasonably predict that each tomatoe plant may yield $18 to $31 dollars ( rounded off), true organics may bring bring a higher price per pound, however various factors as to availabilty, quality, market, and time of year will impact this. The same is true with peppers,we saw some extremely high prices due to drought conditions in California last year, wheather or not these conditions will continue , will have an impact on market conditions. One thing is for sure, the National attention that is being diverted to nutritional emphasis, and a myriad of motivational rationalizations are being bombarded on the public to help sponsor some pending bills before congress, some of which the public should pay close attention to.
