We celebrated Earth Day weekend by getting a new spring garden tilled up and ready to plant. My dear husband goes all out once a year and gives it a deep digging with his backhoe bucket to get rid of roots. I jump in and remove most of the grass roots, tree roots and other debris.  After adding supplements like compost and lime, he'll roto-till it all up thoroughly to make it light and lovely and rich. Ready to plant a spring garden! This year while digging we also harvested the sweet potatoes which sort of took over naturally from some volunteer sprouts.  I've got a huge supply of sweet potatoes now which should store well for a few months, and the baby ones left in the ground will seed the next crop.The seed starter bench is already loaded with young plants ready for the ground: bok c...

Happy Easter from Haiku Maui - come and get your farm fresh eggs!  Wishing everyone a Happy Easter weekend with lots of fun things to do.  We'll be busy gathering all the eggs from our 8 new hens who are very productive, and the 6 old hens who are in semi-retirement.  It's always fun to see how many eggs get laid each day.  These new layers are really paying for their keep, with 7 or 8 eggs a day.  The old girls aren't so great but it's hard to kick them out since they have been good producers in their time.  I've been giving them away, selling some, and eating plenty.  Such good food!Do you need a home in Haiku Maui where you can raise some chickens?Wild chicken eggs in Haiku MauiAnd, as if that's not enough eggs and chickens, some wild hens and roosters have taken up residence on our ...

Sammy Hagar's Maui oceanfront home sells - $3,100,000While I'm on the topic of celebrity real estate on Maui (see previous blog post about the Maui Brando Estate), it's notable that the oceanfront property of Sammy Hagar just closed a few days ago after being on and off the market for many years. $3,100,000 seems like a pretty good price for 9.8 oceanfront acres with a house and cottage, swimming pool and cabana, a well and solar power system!  This is the kind of property where you can be self sustaining.  Estate properties are selling in the Huleo area of Haiku Maui, and this is a good comparison for others who have oceanfront listings.  Search Maui oceanfront listings for sale here.There's still plenty of good homes and land for sale in this part of the island - the north shore, so l...

Purple and white eggplants from my Haiku Maui gardenFor a while at the end of summer my eggplants were going off!  This year we even had some white ones that did well.  They come in a lot of shapes and sizes and colors too.  Here in Hawaii the long purple eggplant can be found in most markets.  I wouldn't say eggplant is my favorite vegetable to eat, but they are fun to grow and they look so beautiful when they are all shiny and plump.Eggplants do well in the Haiku Maui climate, and will grow for a long time, making it worthwhile to have a few plants on hand all the time.  In Japan it's considered good luck to have eggplant for the New Year... maybe it's just something that's easy to have growing in the winter months?Let me be your guide to finding a Haiku property for sale.When life gi...

My Haiku hens are growing so big, look at them now!We got 8 chicks two months ago and I posted some pictures of them here in their cozy starter home.  It seemed so big and roomy back then.Look at them now!  These 8 hens are soon going to need a bigger house.  We plan to move them into the chicken coop in another month or so once they are big enough to outsmart any mongoose that comes around.  In the meantime they get moved around the backyard enough to keep the grass mowed.Is your house getting a bit cramped?  If you're looking for a bigger house on Maui, let me help you find one.  Maybe a house in Haiku Maui where you can raise some chickens!  Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i ...

Would you buy a coconut from this man on the side of the road? He's wielding a big knife and wearing an eye patch, looking a lot like a pirate!Fresh coconuts for sale in Haiku MauiI had to stop just to get some pictures, and I did buy a coconut while I watched him open it with his machete right in front of me.  It was worth it - the coconut water was sweet and refreshing, and I was thirsty.  He was enterprising enough to be there selling his coconuts and I didn't mind helping him out with a few dollars.  I think he was doing pretty good business this day with the sun shining and lots of cars going by. An opened coconut ready for drinkingIf you've never tasted a freshly cracked coconut full of coconut water, then you are really missing one of the good things in life.  Put it on your buck...
