Papa’s World – meet up in Berkeley Springs!

We had planned this for months –

A childhood friend – Bob and wife – PJ –

were going to travel through our area on their way back to N.H.

So – we arranged to meet here in Berkeley Springs , W.V.

fpr two nights and stay at the historic Country Inn.

Sherry Papa (Tom) PJ ( Pam) Bob

A year ago they had traveled with their RV and stayed a couple nights

at our home in Brambleton. Va.

Bob and I went to grade school and high school together

played football together and other sports.

He would stay overnight at my house and me at his house.

And – of course – many stories of beer on the hill sleeping out

with a couple of our other friends!

We have a lot of history together.

The historic Country Inn

We got together a few times at our five year reunions

And just nine months ago –

started the same health journey that Sherry and I are on!

And in that short time looking at this picture

I can tell it is working!

Another close by resort we visited and had dinner

They will go back to N.H. to their condo

having left their RV in Nashville at their sons home

and after Christmas – drive back and pick it up

and spend the next four or more months in Florida.

We also visited Cacapon State park and golf course

This course was lush in green and in really good shape

I wanted to just play it but we had no clubs with us!

So – we sat on the deck – watching players and drank a few beers!

Deep in discussion!
Walking Cacapon
The girls social distancing from us so they say! At Lake Holiday!

We had a very good two days all be it way too short.

When good friends meet up

it always seems short.

Berkeley Springs – we had never stayed here but had toured it before

The weather got a bit chilly –

but we had fun.

60 some years later still friends

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

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.
