Poha berries before

image

I spent the morning picking poha berries more commonly known as gooseberries. See the pictures above. The Poha berry has an outer shell very similar to a tomatillo.  It’s paper thin but you have to take it off.   It took over an hour to peel all those berries . The chickens have been very busy as you can see with all the eggs, and we had our first batch of Chinese peas. I love Chinese peas; they are one of my favorite vegetables. The hubby went fishing and caught a really nice ono  that we’ve been eating all week . It’s certainly been a productive week on the farm.

Farm girl wannabe, enjoying life on the Big Island. We have a small five acre farm along the Hamakua coast. While we have a few crops we grow to sell, we are trying to create a self sustaining lifestyle on our little piece of paradise. I set up this blog initially to help me keep track of different things we grow and how well they’re doing, but recently decided to go public with it. I enjoy reading other hobby farm sites, and thought sharing our story a little might inspire others as they have inspired me.
