"what a beautiful sentiment for your mom. My dad passed away from colon cancer 4 years ago and I think back to him loving laboring in his vegetable garden, celebrating his trimuph over the tomato demons and forcing zucchini on everyone that entered…"

"Thanks Aaron for sharing such deep and personal thoughts. I'm right there with you. The reason from my move from corporate life to where I am now, was to help my Dad after my Mum had multiple strokes. In June 2007, I dared to wish for one more…"

"I always think about my granny when I'm in the garden.  It was her wisdom and encouragement that piqued my interest in gardening.  My gran passed away 5 years ago and I think of her daily.  Good luck with your hot sauce empire."

"For many people food is love.  It is this visceral, pure, joyous form of care and affection.  I can't think of a better way to honor her and your gardening connection than to keep it going.  Best of luck."

What stuff means...

Last Summer it appeared that my mom had fought and beat lung cancer. In February of 2011 she was in intensive care at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY. Doctors told us that she was, "holding on to the edge of a cliff."  I stayed with her for several days, sleeping in a recliner and praying. I asked God to give her more time. I just wanted to see her in the garden one more time. We had plans. Greenhouse plans. Seeds in the dirt plans.Well, God gave her another Spring. Her pop-up…See More

Perfecting the Formula

January 25, 2012. Andrea and I worked on perfecting the Hot Sauce recipe. We gave a call to Cornell Food Science and have begun the process of making sure we're doing everything the right way.

In 3 weeks we'll send our formula over to the good people at Cornell and they'll analyze the ph, check the shelf-life, and rate our overall performance (with respect to food safety).

There are about 15 friends who have volunteered to rate our performance with respect to…

The Journey Begins

I'm full of crazy ideas. Anyone in my family will vouch for that.

 

Here's my latest. Locally hand-crafted hot sauce. Okay - maybe it's not 100% original, but definately crazy.
