This morning we went back up into the hirose grove to finish last week’s harvesting. We collected around 100 good poles, trimmed the branches, and put the remainder through our chipper.
This weekend we went to our neighbor’s annual Valentine’s day chocolate party, and had a great time. There was a huge spread of all kinds of chocolate treats, including some great raw chocolate pie and mocha fondue, but we’ll probably stay away from chocolate for a few days – too much of a good thing is indeed possible even here in Kipahulu.
