Haiku Maui Hawaii - it's a great place to grow things.

We are blessed with an almost perfect climate here in Haiku - and this spring has been one of those years when we get early morning showers to keep everything green and fresh.  It was good timing for a veggie garden, so hubby got the tractor out and made me a nice spot right close to the house this time.

Let's see, what do I have growing now.... lettuce, mesclun, cilantro, basil, dill, Vietnamese coriander, lemongrass, marigolds, cosmos, pole beans, brocolli, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, habanero peppers, more kinds of hot peppers, kawelo tomatoes, cucumbers, and sugar peas.  And a whole 'nother garden with just corn - which the birds are already enjoying (the sprouts)!

 It's all organic, with complehumus fertilizer, bone meal, dolomite lime, chicken manure, composted wood chips with horse manure, and green sand.

The trick is to remember to plant successive crops, every month.  Once you start harvesting and eating, it's easy to forget starting some more rows.  It takes a lot of space to have multiple garden areas.  We are lucky to have lots of space, so no excuses anymore.

There are plenty of pepper and tomato starts that I need to get in the ground now... these will produce for months.  In fact some of the pepper plants will keep going for years.  The Hawaiian chili pepper is a small red pepper that grows prolifically, and it's fiery hot.  Good for making chili-pepper water, a local seasoning.

So this is where you'll find me every morning - tending the garden before it gets too hot.

Then it's on with the Realtor Hat - get out there and show some properties, and make some offers.  If you're looking for a place on Maui where you can have your own garden, please give me a call.  I'm here to help you find that perfect Maui home.

Very nice Georgie. I have garden envy. You know if you ever have too many veggies you can always bring some into the office.

OK - you got it.  And if you ever have too much time on your hands, come on out and pick some stuff.  We're planting more today.  I opened my big mouth about needing more room to plant stuff and Murray made another huge garden ... aaacckk!
