I’m Alive!

Sorry for the inactivity guys! College has been difficult and the winter doesn’t make for a great growing season. There will be TONS of new stuff to show you this spring though. Can’t wait! Get your green thumbs ready. 💚

Hello, is anyone still out there?

It’s been a while, work stole a lot of my fun time the last few years. :/  My garden chores this year were essentially keeping the perennials and young trees happy, added some more berries and turned a timer sprinkler system on.  I’m just putting it to bed this weekend, and planning to embark on a 3 month unplug from work.  A feed my soul trip and I’m SO EXCITED.  Lots of garden related activities of course, just in different climates. 😀

First to Hawai’i for a few weeks to check on the farm and lot, mulch the trees, plant some more stuff, check out the recent lava flows down the road, probably cry a bit, go explore the new things Pele left behind.  *Sighs* Then I fly to Northern Borneo to get my Alfred Wallace on in the jungle, volunteering with the Orangutan and Pigmy Elephant efforts.  Tree planting in the jungle and counting wildlife on river floats w00t w00t, then to Bali for a week, hopefully get to Sumba to visit some friends who have built a surf retreat and are hosting a Permaculture design course :O Over to the Mentawai Islands for friends visit and xmas, I hope to Orangutan up northern Sumatra before flying back to Hawai’i for a few more weeks of farm work.  

So, I’ll be reviving things around here as I #plantsomeshit and island hop this winter <3 Lots of no cell zones with just marginal wifi, stoked to uplug from work and plug into sharing the trip here. <3

Tomorrow’s the Big Day

So tomorrow’s the day I’ll be moving my plants into the new greenhouse. I only have a few shelves in it so far so I doubt it’ll be enough to hold all the plants. Some may just have to sit on the ground for now until I can buy more shelves but I’ll be posting pictures of the greenhouse and all the plants tomorrow. Thank you guys so much for being patient with me. Hopefully I’ll be able to start posting more soon. Talk to you guys tomorrow! <3

An Actual Greenhouse

My birthday is coming up and as a gift to myself and from my loving parents, we have put our money together to buy a small greenhouse for my plant collection. We have just finished construction on it and I’ll be moving my plants in soon. I’m more than excited. Words can’t even describe it. I can’t wait to show you guys. <3

Pretty little plant haul!
