Friday the 13th was a LUCKY day for Robert's mom. Her house in Tacoma sold. We went to Hilo this morning to sign papers.
We stopped at the farmer's market and got papaya to go with the avocados, tangerines, navel oranges, limes, lilikoi, chestnuts, starfruit, and squash that neighbors have given us. People here say that you can break off a branch of almost anything, stick it in the ground, and it will grow. Most recently I heard this from a neighbor who started with eight pineapple plants four years ago and now has over 100. I'm anxious to try it.
