Papa’s World – before the pandemic – Sarasota Fla. Loved this city! Just too far away!

Papa and Sherry – hugging a tree in Sarasota , Florida – we had considered moving here – but it was just too far to drive for family and friends and for us to go back home without flying.

Then the Pandemic hit and it never came back into the discussion again.

But – I really liked it here and if we came to Florida – this would be my first choice!

I do not remember the name of the garden but it is city center – and a beautiful place to walk!
We were among huge old growth trees – a lot of shade and a sort of tree – boardwalk that wound its way

in and through the tree branches!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – Sarasota Florida in the garden – with a exhibit for Salvadore Dali!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – BROOK GREEN GARDENS – a must to see south of Myrtle Beach on rte 17.

If you want a peaceful walk – there are miles of trails and paths – among the old growth live oaks – the tall cypress and pine trees of South Carolina.
Along the way – a boardwalk – near the marsh – through the grounds of the old slave quarters – and see the history of this historic old plantation – and the huge rice fields – and wonder how these people lived – worked and toiled.
Scattered about over the acres and acres of the park – hundreds of bronze statues – depicting life of the world – by famous artists – some bigger than life – beautiful to see – and a story behind each one!
A building of hundreds of bronze statues – faces – animals – marble – stone – behold the beauty and capture the imagination of ones soul.
Carved out of wood – almost real like – exceptional artistic work.
Another work by the same artist – carved out of wood!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – I shall continue in the next blog with our walking tour.

Papa’s World – geraniums – potato’s – Tower Gardens

It has been just a little over one month –

since we replanted the Geraniums-

that are now 4 or 5 years old !

For the first time – we have planted Potato’s !

Today – Sunday – 6-2-19

We also have for the second year –

a flower called –

THE EVENING PRIMROSE !

What is unique about that –

is it ONLY BLOOMS AT NIGHT !

EVENING PRIMROSE

The Tower Gardens are now in production for almost 5 weeks.

We have been eating lettuce since the end of week two.

Tower Garden number ONE
Tower Garden Number TWO

It will not be long as we have flowers for Tomato’s – Squash and Cucumbers

And Egg plant – herbs – other greens.

A first for us – Potato’s!

We have a total of 8 Potato plants –

this is the first time we have ever planted them !

Just saying !

We never had Green Thumbs

until we bought our first Tower Garden eight years ago !

And – really – it is so easy –

just make sure it has WATER & NUTRIENTS!

A very wise thought !

Now – I have learned – these are her babies –

she is known as the –

TOWER GARDEN QUEEN !

She has quite the following !

And – you can tell by the results –

I in turn – make sure they have WATER –

They have NUTRIENTS and the vines have a place to climb !

Geraniums – over five years old.
Geraniums over five years old.
Geraniums over five years old

Our Geraniums – I pull up in the Fall –

shake the dirt off –

Stick them right side up in a five gallon pail –

and hang them from ceiling in our unheated garage !

In the Spring – we pull them out –

clean the dead leaves off –

And pot them – water them and just watch them come back.

A good thought

I am in charge of the lawn outside – that is my time to just relax –

I rather like mowing – making it look nice and neat !

My side yard

We had a irrigation system put in two years ago –

and finally – this year –

It has recovered and grown in nice and green !

I have a lawn service and have lime spread in the Fall.

Tomato Plant

All in all – growing vegetables – seeing the colors of our flowers –

Is a form of stress relief for me.

The two Tower Gardens – all the Geraniums and Potato Plants

If you have any questions on the growing system

or bringing back the Geraniums from year to year –

Feel free to ask.

I hope you enjoyed my little blog –

Come back anytime to PAPA’S WORLD !

Healthy Life – Fresh Food

Seven years ago – we were introduced to ” GROWING ” our own FRESH produce.

Neither one of us ( Sherry) my wife – were gardeners – and the thought of weeding was completely out of my vocabulary !

Then we ordered our first ” TOWER ” Garden –

A aeroponic garden system – using Air – Water and Minerals.

We grow some of our seedlings – others we order and have them shipped to us.

Healthy eating – knowing we use no pesticides – and fresh produce –

allows us to eat healthy all year round !
( We also grow in our garage using grow lights during Winter. )

The system is really quite simple – a tank in the bottom – holds 20 gallons of water.

A pump – is attached to the center of the Tower by a hose –

and pumps water straight up to the top and then drips down through holes in the center of the Tower.

The water also contains minerals from the Earth. Patented – and in liquid form.

Which are supplied when you order for one season. Everything you need is supplied – for your original garden season – this system we have is seven years old and looks as good today as when we bought it !

There is a timer for the pump – 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off. The whole process boils down to making sure you have water – and once a week add some tonic – or in the heat of Summer – every other week.

The fresh produce grows at a very fast rate – in four weeks time we are eating lettuce – Kale – leafy greens . Cuke’s and tomato’s & peppers take longer – but much shorter than a normal garden plot. You can grow most anything that does not require a tree. Mellon’s – Strawberries – squash – egg plant – herbs etc.

Simple – fast – and best of all ” I DO NOT HAVE TO WEED ” ! I HATE TO WEED !

Since we were some of the first in the Country as a test – we decided to purchase two more ! We have one set up for Winter in our garage and two outside as you see here – the produce is only a couple weeks old – the smaller ones about a week !

We also are distributor’s for what is called the Tower Garden – and have placed them in schools as part of a curriculum established by the Juice Plus Company – to teach children how to grow their own fresh produce all across the Country – presently 5,500 Towers are teaching the process nationwide. We are responsible for about 70 – our team is very active.

Promoting health – one green at a time – and some reds!!!! LOL

Have a great day – eat healthy.
