Added Edge II

We can prosper in times of change if we keeping looking for that added edge.

Delegates at our January 2012 course in Mt. Dora. We hand pick oranges from our grove and also bring in roses for Ecuador to help gain an added edge. See why below.

As technology turns faster… we need to get smarter. We need added edges so all our courses and seminars now contain a Super Thinking session to help us boost our intelligence. We use the senses: taste, sight, sound and smell to help integrate the mind for more effective thought.

One way we have been helping readers is to introduce Purely Green and Bio Wash.

Merri and I have used the product in our home for decades.  We use Purely Green to wash our dishes, floors, walls… everything and have been able to throw out the dangerous chemicals that sit in most houses today.

Yet there is much more.

We also help readers become bio-wash distributors as part of the turn key income feature in our Super Thinking plus Business courses.

Some Bio Wash distributors are having good results.

One wrote… my partner and I were able to achieve the very first certified organic hydroponic food production facility in the United States after 100’s have tried.

That has allowed us priority status for food purchases from Disney and the Orlando Convention Center.

BioWash was included in this.

Another wrote: Because of the remediation of PCB’s  I have had Boeing, FPL, Con ED New England call me.  Siemens has emailed me.  News travels fast.

I have written numerous times about success we have had with Bio Wash in staving off Wooly Adelgid in the hemlocks at our North Carolina farm and how it is helping our orange grove.

A reader recently sent this note: My son-in-law’s family was in the citrus business in Lee County and had very productive groves.  Alas, the big freeze took out everything.  I think now the U of Fla. has come up with cold hardy citrus and  the future looks good.  I just returned from spending Christmas in Texas and every year I bring back bags of Texas Red grapefruit from the Rio Grande Valley. There is no grapefruit like it.  I wondered if, because of the drought they had this past summer and fall, if there would even be any grapefruit.  There was, but I could tell the quality was a little off and the fruit seemed to deteriorate faster than in past years.  I always bring back four or five huge bags.  Always paid $4.95 per bag, which I thought was stealing, but this year it was $7.95.  Still a bargain compared to the $1.69 for two grapefruit at Publix.

Weather is so fickle…farmers gamble every year, but thank God they are willing to do that, so that we can grow our own crops.  I do worry about the chemicals they must use, especially in the south where bugs thrive.

I went out and bought some quinoa and tried it and loved it.  I am one of those people who cannot have gluten or milk and many other things, so breakfast is very difficult for me.  I made the salad, used the chicken broth, then had it for breakfast with raisins.  You are a life saver.  I love it and all of us old people need more protein than we are getting and quinoa is protein rich.  You are a wealth of information.  Glad you are out there.

My reply to this reader can help you see how one gains added edges.

Thanks for sharing.  Farming indeed is a gamble. The key is finding value… such as those created by depressed grove prices and the ability to improve yields with Bio Wash.  Still every time the weather man says freeze… the blood pressure rises a bit. Here is a shot of our grove last year.


We harvest in November so freeze is no problem but one is concerned with the trees.

Fortunately Bio Wash also helps reduce weather damage.

Size also matters and I have shared the added production our grove has enjoyed.  What I haven’t pointed out is the size of some of the fruit seems to have increased.

We especially noticed that our tangerines were much larger and juicier this year.

Here is one of our tangerines.  To give you a better idea of the size of our tangerines, here is one next to a standard ruby red grapefruit.

Our navels are even more so. Here is a big one.

and with the grapefruit.

Yes the orange is the bigger of the two so big I can hardly juice these with our juice press.

Most of the navels are not quite that big and I have not tested BRIX  but I suspect the size helped create the extra yield we enjoyed from our groves this year.

The grapefruit is on top… tangerine left. The bottom two are navel oranges.

Bio Wash also seems to help with cut roses.  One reader who began distributing roses has had problems with longevity.  This puzzled me so I sent this out to our flower supplier.

Roberto, Did you ever figure out the problems Karen was having with longevity? Ours continue to be a miracle.

These are shots I took this morning Jauary 8, 2012 of the Christmas roses that arrived 18 days ago on December 21, 2011.

I have cut and rewatered three times and removed those that droop. The pinks do not look as good as the

reds, but I’ll cut again today and make several smaller bouquets like this.

These normally last another week… an amazing (to me at least) 24 or 25 days.

One little trick I use is put just a drop of bio wash in the water.  This keeps the algae growth in the water down and I suspect helps the cut flowers assimilate the water a little better.  That’s all guesswork, but those flowers sitting on my piano are not hunches at all… wonderful flashes of nature’s color brightening our home.

Another reader shared:

Gary,  Great info today.  Can’t wait to try quinoa, as I’m one of those gluten casualties, which makes it hard to get bulk in my diet.   People in the US are killing themselves with their diets…even farm-fresh veggies have so much pesticides in them that they are unhealthy.  Now farmers don’t have to plow under their crops as there is a chemical that dissolves them.  That can’t be healthy as it becomes part of the soil.

Ted Tidwell who makes Bio Wash and Purely Green replied:  I use PurelyGreen 100, diluted at the rate of one (1) gallon of Purely Green 100 per 100 gallons of water.  I leave it in contact for several minutes to dissolve the oil in which the toxic pesticides are encased.

This wash also extends the freshness, marketability and edibility of the fruit.  It works on citrus, mangos, peppers, tomatoes, squash, etc.

Example: When available, I purchase the “old” bananas, wash and refrigerate them. They will then last another week.

The taste of washed grapes are often noticiably improved.

There are so many ways one can gain an added edge when they know about something unique like Bio Wash and Purely Green.

On the subject of Bio Wash another reader asked this:  Dear Mr. Scott, I was under the impression that Bio Wash hadn’t been approved for use in the USA by The Man. Has this changed?

My reply: There is no problem using it.  The approvals only relate to what it is called and or used for.

We do not use it as a pesticide nor in any regulated way.  I believe some call it a scum remover. Others call it a fertilizer booster.

Ted Tidwell explains it like this: As a “cation exchange stimulant,” it stimulates the electro-magnetic inter-exchange between the roots
and the nutrient ions in the soil. (plus moisture.)

Because it helps the roots absorb available nutrients from the soil, Alton Holt, the highly knowledgeable Texas rancher who enjoyed a bumper crop of oats despite the Texas drought, described BioWash as a “Ferilizer Booster.”

Thus, growers can actually boost yields while reducing the amount and costs of fertilizers needed.

Cristian Delano’s neighbor, Baton Rouge,  reduced his fertilizer application by 80% and is enjoying the largest yields in ten years
of gardening. His tomatoes are the largest, sweetest ones he can remember and continued to produce long
past the normal harvest season.

His pepper plants normally produce about 12 peppers. This year, single plants are producing up to 90 peppers and were still producing in late November!

I believe that this will be a temporary benefit that will last as long as unused nutrients remain in the soil. Eventually growers will need to add additional nutrients. However, considering the (1) increasing costs of fertilizers and (2) the environmental damage being caused by them.  Growers are welcoming the reduced costs and increased
profit margins.

Dr Jones, PhD, BioPhysics, BioChemistry and BioMolecular Physics, discovered that BioWash can actual restore life to dying citrus trees.  BioWash may have been able to save the 600 trees that you had to replace.

We can gain added edges in many ways. Reducing poisons we absorb through our skin and food is one way to improve our health and gain an added edge.  We’ll look at Bio Wash for an added edge at our February 8-9-10 Super thinking Plus Business and Investing seminar in Mt. Dora, Florida.

Join us and meet Ted Tidwill, the maker of Bio Wash as well as a host of other speakers.
