I put together a short little video at at the Peahi Dragon Fruit Farm, a new start up in Haiku Maui.  These fruits are so exotic looking and also very tasty and easy to grow if you know what to do.  My friend let me take the videos and gave me some stems to start my own plants!  I'm really excited to see how they do.
Have you ever tried these fruits?  Just cut them open... it peels … (20 comments)

Springtime in Hawaii - tropical flowers are blooming.
There's no end to the beautiful flowers in Hawaii.  Here's some colorful hibiscus flowers growing at the Hawaiian Sea Spirits Organic Vodka Distillery, in Kula Maui.  On a recent tour we enjoyed the grounds and the sugar cane plants.  It's a beautiful spot to take a tour and enjoy the scenery too.
What kind of tropical flowers are easy to grow?  Many kinds are very easy!
Some you just start from cuttings, stuck in some soil.

We love to garden and grow food, which is very easy to do in Haiku Maui.  It's nice to have friends who share this passion, and bring us new plants to try.  Over the years we have incorporated a lot of great herbs into our gardens.
From right to left: chili peppers; oregano; turmeric; my chickens!
Mike brought us Hawaiian chili peppers which are probably some of the hottest peppers you can find.  They are very small and grow all year round on the bush, so there's always an abundance of these fiery little gems ready for picking.  How much do you really … (12 comments)

Survive a tropical storm or hurricane with an off-grid home on Maui - and come out smiling.
Disclaimer - it's not about building materials, but more about lifestyle.
During this past Hurricane Lane event that happened in Hawaii in August, it was a good feeling knowing we were completely prepared in so many ways.  Strong winds knocked down trees, which knocked down power lines, causing loss of electricity for thousands of homes. In at least one location a water line was busted when the roadway collapsed, resulting in no water service to a number of homes in Haiku.  Power and water loss are … (3 comments)

My cute chicken house in Haiku Maui - happy chickens!
My laying chickens are now happily housed in their own little chicken coop at the end of our yard where we can keep an eye on them.
You might remember these hens when they were in their "chicken tractor" which was a pretty good setup until they got full size.  It was a bit crowded for all 8 of them at the time.  One hen didn't make it, just up and died overnight and then there were 7.  Still a bit crowded so my wonderful husband built them this small but functional little … (13 comments)

I love this time of year when the gardenias are blooming and their lovely fragrance fills the air!  We moved to Hawaii in the spring and I remember how wonderful it was to be surrounded with their heady scent.  Now it always reminds me of our first days of living here on this "best island in the world".

Aloha Friday from Haiku Maui - not so leaping lizard
These little green lizards like to hang out in the garden and I hope they're eating lots of little bugs that damage my plants.  There's plenty for everyone! 
Don't confuse these guys with geckos who tend to be inside homes and leave their little poops on the windowsills and elsewhere.
And of course you can find a home for sale in Haiku and grow your own lizards!

Maui banks and mortgages.  When it comes to buying a home in Hawaii, we strongly urge you to use a local bank or lender, since some mainland lenders won't fund to Hawaii.  It's an awful feeling to find this out at the last minute, when you're all set to close on a house sale and things go off track due to the lender.  We have good solid banks here, and they can help you get a mortgage to buy a home on Maui.  There are also other lenders ready to help, and I'm happy to give you some names if you … (6 comments)

We were lucky to pull up to this scenic viewpoint just on the edge of Polipoli State Park in Kula Maui one day, as the paragliders were getting ready to launch.  They get in position and pop their kites up so fast you can blink and miss it.  Luckily I was ready with my iPhone camera for this guy as he got ready.  With some help from his buddy he got positioned, and off he went into the clouds!  You won't catch me doing that!
