This morning started out rainy, giving us a nice, cool mist to work in while roaming throughout the farm on various tasks. We cleared out the grasses growing up our starfruit, avocado, rosewood, and rainbow eucalyptus trees; removed as much guava as we could (guava here is more like a weed than a desirable fruit; most of the land at the farm was once pasture for feral cattle and a haven for guava); trimmed some hawaiian bananas, and pulled out more guava.
Rainbow eucalpytus, or Eucalyptus deglupta, is one of our more beautiful trees on the farm. Delgupta can be used for furniture elements and is also popular for paper pulp.
