Covid Is Back

We knew it would happen when we started reopening our borders. Yesterday, for the 1st time in more than than a year, we found 2 cases of locally transmitted covid. Yesterday at the grocery store, I noticed probably 1 in 5 people wearing masks.

Star Fruit Tree

Several months ago I ate a star fruit. I saved the seeds and try to germinate them. I use the wet paper towel in the dark method. Of the 3 I tried only one sprouted. I put it in a pot and nothing happened for a long time but today I noticed it had come up. I hope she makes it!

it’s Friday! And looks like another yard work weekend.

havva goodun!

Generator Running

During those storm my generator wouldn’t start. I found the air filter had turned into moosh and .the carburetor was very dirty (clogged). I rebuilt and cleaned the carb and replaced the filter and got it running. But it runs rough. The jets in the carb have two parts, I could only get one out. Maybe I can get it out today.

Also, more yard cleanup yesterday (and today). And yesterday I went out looking for a replacement closet door. Didn’t find one, but stopped by the nursery and beach for a minute.

Tomorrow it’s back to work, I’m looking forward to it, strangely enough.

Have a good Tuesday!

Save some get rid of some

The yard cleanup is progressing, closer to done, clean up some cactus palm fronds and little sticks.

I’m trying to save the plants below. They came off their tree. There’s two buckets, one plant seems to be doing well, the other, not so well.

Trying to save

The branch below was huge, a third of the tree. The limbs covered a large area of the yard.

Big part of tree, gone

I’m trying to save the Jamaica Apple Tree, I made a tripod and stood it back up.

quite proud of my tripod.

I really need to rebuild the carb on my generator, which wouldn’t start when I needed it.

It’s a nice day, but hazy from some Sahara dust blowing over.

Have a great week!

Green Things

Pictures of green things today.

Underside of a date palm (I think it’s a date palm)

My wife’s new leaf sprouting bottles in a box. So cute! A lady at work was throwing it away, and I saved it.

Our newest batch of bananas, just about ready for picking.

I feel guilty because I owe everyone comments. I appreciate each and every comment I receive. Thank you!

Have a good day!
