Coming soon to a disaster area near you!

Hey Jim,

Thanks for stopping by!


Everyone needs to stop worrying events that they have no control over and start planning a way to raise their own food in their yard, on the back porch or in 5 gallon buckets.

To do my part in fighting world hunger I am going to share a method to raise killer Tomato's. I raised over 100 plants last year and canned every bit of them.


Pass this on family and friends and have fun growing the best vegetable in the garden.

If you plant, can or store potato's, beans and tomato's you can survive without having to resort to eating those MRE's.

Think of how many dishes can be made with only those 3 veggies.
