Home away from home 

We are spending the weekend away with family on Oahu. Our son is taking care of the farm. Couldn’t help myself but had to make some guava jelly while we are here. Isn’t that what everyone does on vacation. I brought some jars with me because last time we were here I couldn’t find canning jars anywhere. We must’ve gone to four stores before someone found an old case all dusty on some back shelf somewhere. Then store clerk asked what I was going to do with the jars. She looked at me like I was from another planet when I told her I was going to make jelly!!

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.
