View From Crater Hill 1981

This photo was taken by my friend Steve Tiffany sometime around 1982. We worked together on a house overlooking Kaupea Beach while we were starting the farm.
You can see the house and barn all by themselves.
Steve disappeared near Chiang Mai in 1989.

Super Sweet #9 1980

Here is a photo I came across from 1980.
Cindy, Joe and Richard with first crop of corn.
Hard to believe that much time has gone by.
Also nice to have a photo of when I still had abs.

First Vanilla Pods Ripening

I read it's not good to let them split so I'll watch closer now. I have to go back in this blog and figure out how many months ago we pollinated the flowers. I'm propagating more plants and a few seem to be doing well and putting out good growth so we can get more pods next year. also note flowers on the Mamey tree branch, I'm thinking since both these plants origins are in Mexico they might have an affinity for one and another?
