While I'm on my sickbed with this awful bug that's going around, I get a little relief by thinking of our 2013 Escanaba SDA Community Service Center's Garden project. Last year was our First year at attempting a garden for our Food Pantry and I have to say that our attempt was blessed by God! EVERYTHING grew like crazy even in the HOT, DRY weather we had! The only things that didn't succeed were the few peas that we planted and the tomatoes. Sadly, only the few cherry tomatoes we planted were good. The rest all got Blossom End Rot. We're located in Escanaba, Michigan, zone 5 and our garden is on the church property of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We have 14 raised beds that are 2'x30' made from cedar logs that were sawed and dried at a small local mill for the purpose of building a log home. They were donated to us by the widow of the mill owner after he had passed away. They were perfect for our use and a great place to sit while weeding/harvesting.

Food is not just a matter of picking a basket at the shopping mall.It is more than money can buy. Growing natural organic food means getting back to the roots.Getting in touch with the natural tastes,varieties and enabling biological cycles to suport us.Supporting training and extension among small farmers. This is our preocupation and concern at Bio Gardening Innovations.

I have my first crop of oranges at my home in Costa Rica. They are quite large and green but are easily twisted off and semi-soft to the touch. But every one I pick is completely dry inside and has very pale butter colored flesh. Are they too ripe or not ripe enough?

Is looking forward to grow Snow Peas (Carouby de Maussane) extra early under home-made cloches this month. Anyone ever tried that before?

Hey campus farmers! I am working with a college that is interested in starting an aquaponics project and hopes to eventually sell tilapia to their school's cafe. I am wondering if any of you out there are already doing anything like this and would be willing to talk to me about your experience! You can e-mail me at claire.cummings@bamco.com or call me at 650-906-3436...any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looking forward to the spring. Have permission to start a School Garden project at my grandsons school. Will apply for the grant and hopefully get it...but if not...will do the garden anyway...so worth the effort and expense.

I have just started to receive seed catalogs this year. I used to order organic seed from The Cook's Garden, but hadn't for several years, so I was surprised to receive their catalog. It looked glossy and big, compared to what I remembered. Yes, indeed. It is now owned by Burpee.

I planted a pecan tree in my front lawn 6 years ago. Yesterday I noticed something near the top. A pecan, the first and only one. I split it with my wife. Delicious, I can't wait till next year.
