Growing stuff

My tomato clones (cut from my mother plant before the cold hit) are doing well, and four of them are now in flower! I know that most of the world thinks I am crazy as a barking moon bat, but that just made my day somehow.
I think I get far more satisfaction out of having tomato flowers at the Winter Solstice than most would. So lets just take a look at that for a moment.
Dr. Oz did a show on GMO foods (Dec.3rd?) and made a statement that 80% of the food Americans eat is GMO. That you average American adult has about (or over) a pound of dissolved polymers in their bodies. (that is a pound of plastic folks... how you gonna work that off)
Growing my own veggies from heirloom seeds seems to be a bit of a health bet that I can make for myself and my family.
Yes, my tomatoes are in flower.

does your tap water...

have enough methane in it to burn? Will your shower cause your home to explode due to methane build up in your bathroom?
Time to pay attention, so I thought I would share this with you today.
