To market to market …

It was a busy afternoon harvesting dragon fruit,starfruit , and Meyer lemons. We’re selling them to a local CSA in Hilo. Dragon fruit is our cashcrop we sell each year but this is the first time were selling the lemons and starfruit. Our tree is so loaded with starfruit I’m surprised some branches haven’t snapped yet. We gathered almost 400 pounds of all the fruits today.

Weekends are usually tied up with farm and home chores that we barely ever go to the beach anymore. But this morning, David had to work so we ventured to the Kona side, and got some snorkeling in. It was so nice. Then we made a quick pit stop to Costco.  It was a good, productive day. Feeling very grateful.

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.
