We have so many Chinese peas right now . I found a beautiful butternut squash in the garden along with some cucumbers I didn’t know we had.  It makes it sound like I just stumbled upon some vegetables I didn’t know we were growing. The vines of the squash and cucumbers have such large leaves you can easily miss these vegetables if you’re not looking very well.  Our surinam cherry tree has a ton of fruit on it too and we got our first small batch of Malabar Chestnuts.

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.
