Rather proud to be following in my old Papa's footsteps and supplying a decent harvest of organic Tahitian limes to a local hotel.  Though my Papa is very canny and held back a portion of the harvest to barter for some very tasty, and incredibly large, avocado pears from one of our neighbours.  'Tis these simple things in life that bring so much pleasure....


  1. Hello there, HH: Thrilled to learn you've a blog now! The limes are wonderful. But what is an avocado pear? Maybe I've seen a similar fruit in one of the upscale markets and did not know exactly what it was. So exciting to hear about your adventures. Keep going - please! Fondly, Mary Back

  2. Hey there Mary. Thanks for looking in on the blog. Perhaps you know avocado by a different name where you live. There's actually a photo of some at the top of the blog, not sure if you can see it, but they are delicious and very nutritious!

  3. Always like to see a post from you. I don't get on facebook enough, need to be better about that. This summer was SO unbearably hot for us I didn't get much done outside. Cooler weather is coming and i hope to go crazy soon, ha.

    1. Hey 1st Man, always a pleasure to hear from you. Hope you guys are doing great down on the farm. We too are having some very hot weather but these past few days there's been a strangely crisp, clear and still quality to the light and air. I hope it doesn't mean a storm's-a-coming! I'm sure you've been very busy all summer; planning and planting a Fall garden will be a lovely interlude before the nights start to draw in and all you want to do is cosy up by the fire. Looking forward to seeing what you do next. :)
