Papas World – Sheltering – warm days – seems normal!

We finally had some warm weather a couple days in a row!

Friday – Saturday and Sunday – low 70’s to low 80’s.

Beautiful skies – blue – white clouds and sunshine!

After Sunday supper – I sat down on the front porch and noticed

the clouds were coming in from the South West.

Going to storm I thought – but it was warm –

and I told Sherry if it does and the temps drop

we will have our first Spring Thunder and Lightening storm!

THE GRATEFUL DEAD
To all you deadheads out there!

We had watched our church service streamed live

enjoyed a great breakfast

and decided to walk to our town center 1 1/2 miles away.

So we could get in our three plus mile walk!

When we got over there after walking through the 15 acre park

we saw they had set up the Farmers Market –

with the whole width plus some – the street in between the booths

and each booth had yellow caution tape in front

so you could not get close.

You had to point and tell them what you wanted!

It was very well set up with a large table in the middle of the street

with hand sanitizer on it to disinfect your hands before and after

you made the purchase.

Since it was late and they were closing up –

I do not know if it was cash or credit card or both.

But – next week we are going as they had hanging baskets for $10.00

and Tomato plants for $2.50

( I always buy one to see if I can produce better than the Tower Garden)

I can’t!!!!!

The storm came in later at 10 PM. with lightening and Thunder

and a little bit of rain.

This morning it is warm 59 degrees.

Everything is lush – green and our roses are starting to bloom!

Papas World – Sheltering – Day # 43 – THE LADIES!

When we married – each for the second time 38 years ago

She brought into my life two beautiful daughters.

I raised them as my own as she helped me raise my two sons.

Today – after all these years – we remain close –

And they have become the THREE LADIES IN MY LIFE!

Debby – Sherry & Tammy

They are married now – one living 10 miles away

with a set of twin girls – both nine.

And the only boy ( grandson) who is five.

The other lives 65 miles away –

and has three teen age daughters

One in college – two at home!

Maddy – soon to be 20
Ella – soon to be 17
and Sarah – soon to be 14
taken as we celebrated my 60th birthday.

While we do not see them as often as we do the younger ones

and now in day #43 of SHELTERING –

Sherry asked me when this is over –

What is the first thing you want to do?

See our family I said.

My sons live seven hours away.

Back in NWPA

We try to get back there when we can.

But that is hard to do.

So we call them – catching up –

My youngest son has his own Energy Auditing business

and contracts with the state and power companies.

My oldest son runs the crews for him.

We are very proud of all four

and when this is over will sometime this summer make that trip back home.

The days seem to run all together –

although Sherry remains very busy in her internet stay at home business.

Her monthly check has increased.

Health and nutrition and growing your own produce

fits in this time of Sheltering.

Debby and Tammy
all those years ago

Today I cherish my LADIES in my life.

We all are here for each other

and both have followed in their mothers footsteps

Sharing – selling – and teaching good health and nutrition.

Papas World – getting ready – Spring is here – Tower Gardens

Good morning!
We returned from Florida
the weather was great
saw my first robin
and decided to put
our Tower Gardens together
and start our seedlings!

I unpacked and uncovered the two Tower Gardens

that last November I cleaned up and put into storage!

One was taken apart and covered up and stored in the patio.

The other taken apart and put on shelves in the garage.

The Tower garden in the patio.
After I cleaned up the patio
from the mild winter we had.

This year I said to Sherry –

lets spit them up – one in the enclosed patio

and the other one on the back patio!

They got so big – that it was difficult working

all around them to pick cucumbers and tomato’s!

This one will be all different lettuces – herbs – chard

some bee flowers – mostly leafy plants!

This is the one on the back patio

This one will be cucumbers – tomato’s – peppers –

celery – radish – plus others –

I needed space for the vines to spread out.

We also are going to plant potato’s in large pots

like you see in the background.

I did this for the first time last year

and had 30 or 40 potato’s – small ones but tasty!

Our indoor Tower Garden
which we have done for the last five years!

Our indoor Tower Garden – at the end of January –

just before we left for our month in Florida –

We cleaned up and removed all plants!

It served us from end of October to end of January.

Had we not left – it still would of been producing!

This one has a built in timer and grow lights at the top.

Since it is in the garage and space is limited

No cucumbers or tomato’s!

We eat greens everyday !

Here are our growing pods
and all the seeds we are planting
we also plant what we call BEE FLOWERS

We have started our seedlings – which will take three or four weeks

under grow lights from the Tower Garden in the garage,

We have started various plantings –

38 plants total to start.

We have room for 56 plants!

But – even selecting everyday from these Towers

We can not eat it all!

We give some to family and some to neighbors!

Our neighbor next door has one – and she can not eat it all!

One – if planted properly –

can feed a family produce so that they buy very little from the store!

If any at all!

Sherry and Tom

Welcome to Papa’s World

Thank you

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.
