¬†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

The tomato orchard is in full swing!





  The garden is coming along , we now have approximately 400 tomato's in various forms of ripening. With all the different varieties, it's almost as if we were watching a daily race to see what's producing the fastest.
  The remaining vegetables are getting bigger, our peppers took off in growth with the recent heat wave, however the rain has been sparse this week. Our ability to water them, with the suspension of the watering ban , came in the nick of time.

                                                                              
             
  The plant above is a Roma, it's looking real good, so far the Tropic VF, Principie Borguise,Black Krim , Zebra, and the Black Krim are bearing a lot of fruit. We had a little problem with an Aussie, however I think it was it needed water, so far we have only had to replace 1 plant out of 154.
                                                            


      Above , are the cucumber racks I've made so they can be lifted horizontally off the ground, this is a new technique we are using this year as opposed to the trellis  type , looking forward to seeing how this works out.



   The squash & zuchinni are starting to bear fruit , we should be picking our first fruits at the end of the week .
