Checking the Tomato Plants

Looking Good!
Beverly and I went to Knoxville today to visit Mary. We had a good visit and really enjoyed our time together. Precious moments.

While there we checked on Dad’s Tomato Garden. I was amazed at the growth in only one week. Instead of just blooms there were dozens of green tomatoes. I think every plant had green tomatoes. While there I decided to give the plants a watering. Here’s a few pictures Beverly took while I was watering the plants.

Dad would be proud of his tomato plants this year. It sure looks like there is going to be a bumper crop.

Book Sales
If you want to buy one of Dad’s book, it is not too late. You should order online through the link in the side panel, but we are not using PayPal. When you order on line the order will go direct to Jim, and when he receives your check or money order he will ship your book(s).

Thanks again for all your Phone calls. comments, emails and cards. They have meant so much to us during these days of sadness.

DAD's tomato garden has been blessed from Heaven. The tomatoes look almost ready to be fried using DAD's favorite Fried Green Tomato Recipe. We hope you, Beverly, Mary and Prince are filled with Peace.

How nice to see those tomatoes. You are so kind to take a picture to share with us all. It's a tribute in itself to your Dad. I hope all is going well for all of you. I know you miss your Dad. May the dear Lord comfort and bless you all.

Thanks for checking in and posting the pictures. I bet Dad is looking down from heaven and smiling. Every time I look at my few plants I think of Dad. Prayers for all of you. Sheila

Summer 2011 was not good to DAD and Mary. The storms damaged the house and the garden. Some people would be depressed over all the damage, Not DAD! He moved forward, met and hired workers to repair and refresh the house and he bought new plants and smiled as he shared his small harvest with friends and family. Winter 2012 also started off with problems for DAD, but again he moved forward and found a doctor who helped refresh and reenergize him with the HBOT. He used that renewed energy to write and publish and sell his book which we get to enjoy. And he still had enough energy to plant over 20 tomato plants. He did all of this at the age of 98. And he used technology to share this year's bumper crop, we can watch those plants grow on the CAMs he set up for us. Thanks for posting the close up of the big green tomatoes. I can still see and hear him preparing his famous fried green tomatoes on one of his videos. I think it may be time to repost that video along with his recipe. ...Sara's Mom

Just stopping by to say hi and send love to you all. I saved all of Dad's videos that I could to my YouTube account -- tbey are treasures every one. So glad to see his tomato crop is doing so well -- the other friend/posters are absolutely right ;)

I received my copy of Dad's book 2 days before he passed. What an extraordinary man, and what an amazing family. Sending love and *PRAYERS* and special PURRS to Prince from Jamaka and fams <3
