"Let's Look at Our Animal Tree Gets New Layers Of Wood Each Spring Each spring and summer a tree adds new layers of wood to its trunk. The wood formed in spring grows fast, and is lighter because it consists of large cells. In summer, growth is slower, and the darker wood has smaller cells. So when a tree is cut, the layers appear as alternating rings of light and dark wood. Tomato Kings' Employ Sfeam To Grow Crops SUSANVILLE, Calif. Half in jest, they sometimes call themselves the Tomato Kings of Hobo Wells. They grow fat, red tomatoes when the mercury drops below zero and snow covers the ground near this isolated northern California com- munity. And to do it, they plant the fruit in pea gravel, tickle the blossoms with electric toothbrushes and keep them warm with "organic steam heat." Refugees from the sunny climate of San Diego, Mark Souza, Phil Gutman and his son, Andy, founded Hobo Wells Hydropnnic Inc., two years ago. "People thought we were nuts, but when they saw the buildings and saw the produce grow, their attitude Sonza said In an Interview. The key to their operation in the high desert scrubland about 14 miles from Susanville is Hobo Wells, a geothermal spring which produces boiling water from the earth year- round. "We have all the sunshine we need, and the heat from the wells keeps us from having to buy expensive fuel to keep things going in the winter." Gutman said. The hot water "organic steam heai" is pumped through the pipe framework of the plastic greenhouses to keep the plants from freezing in the winter. Last winter, the trio grew pounds of tomatoes in two greenhouses and sold the fruit in Susanville. They're ad- ding four greenhouses this summer and expect to produce about 20 tons of tomatoes an- nually in each of them. It h't "Open1 you'll fine!
