We keep a place in Cutler Bay since the wife worked at the Jackson Memorial Hospital Emercency room and just retired after 35 years.The drive was only 12 miles,she worked 4/12s then three off so on..Our home ( exemption at 25 grand off the tax bill is in Homestead) For non Floridians we pay no state tax,also no one except the Usa fed eminent domain law can take your land,hence Oranthal Simpson Oj lives 2 miles away and has a really nice spread.The no till garden is in Chocoloski/Everglades City.The rows you see are at Knausberry farm in Homestead.The one image shows the “bucket brigade”migrant workers loading up non green smaller than our Homestead Red,the farmer gave it a number So and some thing.Most green tomatoes are gone,gassed,waiting at your local Mc Donald’s.

When done in the fields before they rip everything up,pull all the rebar rods,reclaim most wire,we get to walk thru,spot that hidden gem,cut open this almost vermillion colored juiciest mater,the old table salt shaker,one bite,heaven before I gets there!sorry
