  • Coconuts and Composting

    At 10:50, sitting in traffic in Kapaa, I knew I'd gotten the timing all wrong.

Today, with the by-pass road that skirts downtown Kapaa and relieves the area of traffic closed for repairs, I would be late. No doubt about it. I do not like being late.

  • Where Are Hawaii's Breadfruit Trees?

    Last month, my friends Charlie and Susan, along with their daughter Andy, decided to experiment with breadfruit.  They bought ulu at a local farmers market--Kapaa, I believe--and made muffins and breadfruit salad.  The gracious people that they are, they shared the quite tasty results of their efforts with me, stirring me to ask, between bites, why aren't more people growing breadfruit trees in their yards in Hawaii?
