¬†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.

Heirloom Tomatoes

  Getting good response to our local ad on craigslist, however please make sure you put contact information on your inquires, we had one Gal named Susan that needs to re submit inquiry.

  Other than that, we have planted 22 tomato plants in the garden  today ( 12 different varities), we are staggering the planting in hopes that we can vary when the plants come up for ripened picking.  Some of the determinate types need more scrutiny than the indterminate types which produce all season til 1st frost.

  Unfortunately we need a bigger garden, so sometime this week my physical fittness program is going to have to kick in , and I'm going to till  another 300 sq. ft. to the 2300 that we have . We have now entered this program Nora has classified as; " leave no plant behind!"  Oye Vey!. At this rate I should be very svelt by the end of May. , or dead.

  So far this is what the garden looks like , with the exception that I pulled the fence out this morning.

  We are running string lines to keeep our rows straight, and our spacing is 3 ft, this should accomodate the majority of the plants.  We are going to let the ground warm up a little more before we plant the peppers. They like warm soil, and warmer evenings.

  Have a Great Week!
