A Start to an End
Hmmm...what's been happening? Really not a lot for the end of 2021. Just the same old greenhouse chores and dealing with bad decisions. Me? Making bad decisions? Yeah, I know that's hard to take in, but yeah, I've made a few! A good example of one of the latest is planting passion fruit
We haven't made a trip to PR since 2017. Four years! First it was hurricane Maria that devastated the island requiring a massive recovery effort. Then we have COVID-19. Two punts right to the nads. So after being cooped up for a year and a half due to COVID lockdowns, it was a such a rush to be able to make it down there after so long. Several
Figs Figs Figs!
Yeah yeah yeah...it's been quite a while since I've put out a blog. In my defense, I did warn you long ago that I'm not your typical blogger and will only put something out when I have something to talk about. Hasn't been a lot to talk about. No trips to PR because of either the hurricane or COVID. No trip to Florida last year due to COVID.
So figs?? These ain't no rare, tropical fruit! Yeah, I hear ya. But have you ever tasted a really good fig? No? Then shut up, sit back, and I'll tell you about some of them. LOL!
Florida - 2019
There's only one thing better than hooking up with some old friends...hooking up with old friends to sit around and eat lots of mangoes! This is prime mango season in Florida and I hate like hell to miss it. The stars were in proper alignment and the work arrangements were perfect for this occur. So I made sure that I had plenty of room in the suitcase for the trip
Starting off 2019
Things are normally pretty slow during winter in the greenhouse. The weather sucks outside and there usually isn't a lot going on inside during this period. I did manage to keep busy with some interesting projects though.
Summer Lovin? Nope!
This was what was waiting for me when I got back from Thailand. Fleeing the country for a few weeks didn't make all of this go away unfortunately.
This trip had it all. Great expectations, anticipation, highs, lows, and the truly miserable. There was to be so much packed into this trip and lots to accomplish. While some of my goals were hit, a few fell short. Some things are just out of your control. So no
Spring Update - 2018
Man, I really hate winter. With a passion. It just sucks. Not much is happening inside the greenhouse. It's usually dark and always damp. I can see algae building up on the block and glass each day. There just isn't much to do in there except to occasionally water.
All I was missing was a hat! And maybe some dry clothes. It was super hot down there this year and humid as hell. But that combination makes for a fantastic climate for the fruit we love so dear.

Long Time No See
I know. I'm a terrible blogger. But I'm okay with that. I never promised I'd be a good one and definitely never promised to be consistent. I write something when I have time and when there is something to actually write about. Now? It's really just too damn hot to be outside!
There has been lots of goings on inside the greenhouse since winter. Not all of it great but there has been some positives.
