Is our food supply in danger


Lets face facts , if we had to raise our own food to survive most people would not make it.

This is a very real possibility – with the technology of patenting seeds called Genetic Engineering (GE). This technology is imperfect at best,it’s cell invasion that transfers selected traits of one specie to the engineered specie. This can result in a plant that will resist some of the common problems some crops have. But in natures complex world, such manipulation of genes and cells can cause major problems.

For example some of the GE seeds have genes from pesticides in them , causing the plant to behave like a pesticide. These muti national corporations with their bought and paid for Governments and regulators expect us to eat the GE foods produced from these seeds. They of course have obtained approval for human consumtion by saying that their GE foods and fibers are “substantially equivalent” to the heirloom types , but in the same breath also say that their products are “quite different” and should have patent protection.

Wait a minute ,- who invented the first seeds which they are messing with. Oh yeah -… Mother Nature! They ( the mutinational corporations) need to wake up , don’t be messing’ with Mother Nature, she has a way of always coming out on top.

The worlds Farmers are the ones that have developed the best hybrids , over many years of testing and trials. Natural hybridization is the natural genetic modification of seeds , this practice has gone on for thousands of years. But when the mutinational corporations came on the scene they used agricultural scientist to gain the trust of the farmers, who in turn helped them promote their GM (genetically modified) seeds.

Actually got them to believe that the GM seeds were better than their own. The typical farmer wants to boost his yield because he believes it leads to more income,and this is exactly what the mutinationals want them to believe ,this is not the truth . If all farms had bumper crops consistently the prices crash and no one suffers worse than the farmer. Farmers who understand the market and consumer behavior make money.

Many of the GM seeds that promised greater yields have failed to perform, but have been successful in contaminating
exsisting farmland and the environment. The use of these GM seeds is possibly the largest uncontrolled biological experiment ever released into the open environment.The mutinationals don’t know the long term affects of the continued use of the GM’s nor do I believe they care.

Biological pollution replicates itself in the environment, and it will intensify with time. At this time we know of no way to reverse this, but we do know some of the consequences of continued use of these GM seeds.

One extremely alarming fact is (CCD)Colony Collapse Disorder,  70% to 90% of bee colonies disappeared in two states in the United States where GM’s were extensively used. A study by German scientists found traces of genes from the GM’s in the gut lining of baby bees, and believe that the GM’s are responsible for the CCD.

Albert Einstein once said that without the honey bee man would not survive for more than 4 years. Of all the multinationals none of them compete with each other, for instance Monsanto has control of canola, soybean and vegetable seeds. They also have 25% to 30% of cucumber , potato and tomato seeds.

Here’s a surprise-not  , the USDA is in bed with Monsanto, owning stock in a company that Monsanto succesfully took over. I guess this is just a fact of life, man is out to destroy this planet ,all for the cash.

Beautiful Gardens start with the soil


Spring, when we gardeners start thinking about digging in the soil. Soil preparation is critical to succesful gardens. Plants receive many of their nutrients from the soil, so building your soil up to a point of it being beneficial is important. This does not happen overnight, you should be adding composted material to your soil consistently.

We as gardeners are lucky, we have a simple and low cost solution to our number one problem in the garden….. Yes, compost is easy to obtain and we all produce the materials used in the making of it daily. Much of our common kitchen waste makes for wonderful compost, also lawn clippings and leaves.

Another good source is animal manure, but it must be composted or it will likely do harm to your plants due to the fact that fresh manure is high in ammonia. Fresh manure can be applied to your gardens in the fall and by spring will be perfect for you to plant.

Most plant material after being composted is beneficial. Peat moss is always a good addition to the soil. Now that your soil is prepped and ready to go for another season you need plants. If you choose to buy plants, we recommend going to your local independent Garden Center or Greenhouse, they will have knowledgeable people that can answer any questions you may have. When choosing your plants don’t automatically think you should get the biggest one. Look for a full , lush and sometimes smaller plant with tight buds [if it’s a flowering plant].

Remember to always look your plants over carefully,mainly keep a close eye out for bugs, you don’t need to bring any of them home with you. As far as planting your plants, the labels will tell you whether you should place them in the sun or the shade. Once they are planted feed regularly with a balanced liquid plant food. We suggest Watch Us Grow all purpose liquid plant food.

Flower Gardening

This is normally the time when you’ll be able to see more of the clumps, and less of the flowers. Nonetheless, you needn’t let yourself be discouraged; your lovely flowers will have plenty of time to do their thing and grow into beautiful plants, and, by the end of their third season you will be amazed to admire their splendor. Should you choose to use the All Purpose Liquid Plant Food fertilizer, you can rest assured all of your flowers will soon start to look like they’ve been on steroids for plants!

You need to take into consideration the type of soil you have at your disposal, maybe contact your local flower shop guy and inquire about the plants or flowers you can rest assured are going to be efficiently growing and learn everything you need to know about the specific weather conditions in the area you live. While some plants might look awesome in those glossy gardening magazines, they might not really be at your reach.

Garden Pesticides


If you have a garden, you’re going to have to take steps to keep it free of the different types of pests that may find your garden as appealing as you do. To keep your garden healthy and pest –free, you’ll need to choose the pesticide that’s right for you.

A pesticide is any product that controls plant pests. Pesticides can be chemical or organic and serve to block weeds (unwanted plants), insects or stop fungi from growing on your plants. Let’s take a closer look at some common pesticides.

There are three main types of chemical pesticides available to purchase on the market – organophosphates, carbamates and pyrethroids. Organophosphate pesticides are insecticides that attack insects’ nervous systems. They’re highly toxic, but break down in the environment more quickly than many other pesticides.

Carbamate pesticides are made with carbamic acid, and also attack insects’ nervous systems. In addition to being insecticides, they’re also used as herbicides (weed repellants) and fungicides (fungi fighters).

Pyrethroid pesticides are a synthetic version of a naturally occurring chemical called pyrethin which is found in chrysanthemums. These pesticides work similarly to the other chemicals by attacking the nervous systems of insects. Pyrethroid pesticides don’t break down quickly in sunlight.

Organic pesticides can be purchased or some can be made at home. Insecticidal soap is a combination of sodium or potassium salts and fatty acids. The soap must come in direct contact with the insects before it dries. The fatty acids in the soap seep into the insects’ outer body and collapse the cells. It’s non-toxic for humans and animals, and can be used on vegetables up to harvesting time.

Neem is an organic pesticide that gets sprayed directly onto plant leaves, and upsets the hormonal system of insects and stops their development. It’s non-toxic for humans, but animals should be kept away until the plants dry. Neem washes away in rain, and breaks down easily in sunlight. It’s acceptable any insect.

Horticultural Oil is highly refined petroleum oil. It gets mixed with water and sprayed onto foliage. It coats and suffocates insects making them unable to eat. Horticultural oil has low toxicity to humans, animals or birds, and leaves no toxic residue. A con with its use, though, is that it can burn plan leaves. Also, there are several grades, and you have to be sure to choose the right grade for the season in which you’re spraying.

Ensure that you can easily get to all sections in the garden without having to step into the bed. One of the primary benefits of an elevated bed is the fact that soil does not get compressed the way it can in a traditional bed as they are designed for ease of access.

Just how much preparation you will need to carry out will depend on the depth of the bed you’re planning, and also the crops you intend to cultivate there. Should you be considering an herb or vegetable garden, a six-inch deep bed is ideal.

Make use of rot-resistant wood like cedar or one of the newer types of lumber, to build your bed. Cut the wood to the preferred dimensions, and then connect them to create a basic framework.

Everyone knows that plants need sunshine and water to grow.


But did you also know that all plants require other basic nutrients as well? All purpose plant food products were created to provide plants with an ideal mix of nutrients that they require in order to grow and thrive. These nutrients
include both macronutrients, which are nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium,
sulfur and potassium, and micronutrients, comprised of boron, copper, iron,
manganese, zinc, and molybdenum. Though plants can receive most of these
chemicals and minerals from healthy soil in which they are planted, plants
that receive all purpose plant food tend to grow bigger and more beautiful,
helping gardens and lawns to fill in quickly for your enjoyment you will grow
bigger vegetables,brighter flowers, greener grass. All purpose plant food
products can be used on plants of all types, from indoor to outdoor
varieties. Fruits, vegetables, flowers, and even grass can all benefit
from an application of an all purpose plant food product.

The average person need not worry about difficulty when it comes to
feeding their plants. All purpose plant food products are very easy to
use and require surprisingly little effort. They can come in many different forms including sprays, spike sticks, powders, premixed soils, and liquids.
Some come with hose end sprayers that can be attached to your home garden hose,
which results in an evenly mixed nutritional spray known as foliar feeding or leaf feeding and a refreshing douse of water. A few products
even provide protection against pests such as aphids, caterpillars, and other
bugs that love nothing more than to feed on your plants. Products made
specifically for grass and lawns may even be formulated to be used in the
control of weeds and even to help repair brown patches as well.

your questions The next time you get a green thumb, don’t just throw down some seed or toss a plant in a pot with some water.

Watch Us Grow All Purpose Liquid Plant Food
The following is one of the many fun letters we receive from customers.
Dated May 20 1972  this is one of our favorites:
“Dear Mr. Follett Out here in the Azores we have a character named Gary Papermaster who goes around the neighborhood spraying a rather vile looking green liquid on anything from a squeaking hinge to a drooping petunia with sometimes dramatic results! He makes wild sounding claims for this concoction, calls it WATCH US GROW and says you are the head sorcerer who concocted it. After months of brainwashing in a moment of weakness I permitted him to
use this devils brew on my garden with startling results. My weeping willow no longer weeps, our blushing violets no longer blush, the pansies have grown hair on their chests, and the poor little worm that got hit by the spray ate the early bird this morning. I should also like to report that my listless mexican jumping beans were last seen by Apollo 16 on the way to the moon! In view of these dramatic results I am very anxious to obtain a gallon jug of your brew so please let me know the current price and instructions on it’s use as I am anxious to try it on myself!?
Thanking you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter,
I am Sincerely yours Harold A. Stark”
We have seen these for many years!
We really believe our product can do great things for all of our fellow gardeners and farmers everywhere.
It feels great to see the feed back we get from our great customers.
Thank You and Happy Growing,
