Starfruit, Papaya, Mango, Pineapple, and kiwi.
So then I thought..What else represents the islands here? Hawaiian Host Chocolates of course!! So we picked up a bunch of boxes as well. And finally, we also plan on putting in some local Coffee from a grower that is close to us. Their coffee tastes amazing!!
For my sister that loves that I grow a lot of my own herbs and dry them I will stick in her box some dried basil, and parsley. Also Some pickled hot peppers that I actually finally managed to preserve after figuring out that i had to pick them early before the evil flying creatures laid larva in them. (thats' another post entirely)
I am super excited about Christmas this year even though there is no chance of snow here. We like to call the rain our snow. lol It rains much more here in the winter than the summer. I have a papaya tree in a pot that got flooded this past weekend due to my absent mindedness. YES..I forgot to drill holes or even take off the bottom to let the water out. I KNOW..I KNOW....I need to find the keys to the garage door, (hubby locks it so the boys cant get in there), and get his drill and save the darn thing! Its much too heavy now for me to lift and try and take the bottom thing off now...lol (yet again...another post)
So what are you all planning for the holidays? See? I am assuming that someone out there is reading this..haha...
