These new chicks will be laying eggs in the spring in Haiku Maui.  We're not waiting until spring to get some new chicks, we're getting them started now so we'll have eggs in time for Easter 2018.  It takes about 6 months before they start to lay.  These are White Rocks and Ameraucanas, and there are many more types of egg laying breeds.Starter home for little chickens, Haiku MauiSomebody in Waikapu had ordered day old chicks and had a lot extra, so my husband picked up 8 about a week ago.  He built them a nice outdoor cage with wheels on one end so they can be moved around the lawn as needed.  It's called a "chicken tractor" and they get to enjoy the fresh grass and see the sunshine every day.  This is just their starter home until they're big enough to move to the chicken house down t...

Aloha Friday from Haiku Maui - not so leaping lizard These little green lizards like to hang out in the garden and I hope they're eating lots of little bugs that damage my plants.  There's plenty for everyone!  Don't confuse these guys with geckos who tend to be inside homes and leave their little poops on the windowsills and elsewhere.And of course you can find a home for sale in Haiku and grow your own lizards!Have a great weekend wherever you are.Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers127 Hana Hwy. #G, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635

My gardens in Haiku Maui are always growing and we usually have a series of ongoing garden patches, so there will always be something to harvest.  Ideally we'll start a new section every couple of months, but in the depth of winter we just let it all go to give ourselves a break.  New plants are started from seeds on a regular basis, or whenever I remember to do it.  I'm lucky to have a farmer husband who will prepare the soil and add all the organic amendments, and leaves it to me to get creative with the growing.The potting bench where the seeds get started.The current garden is very full and I'm picking 2 kinds of beans, 2 kinds of sweet peppers, 3 kinds of HOT peppers, assorted salad greens, eggplants, tomatillos, cherry tomatoes, bok choy, chard, basil and cilantro.  Still to come ...

This sweet home at 802 Door of Faith Road sold - and I'm already missing it.  I really love this little yellow home with the great big views in Haiku Maui.  This makes 3 times I've sold it, so I hope I'll get the opportunity to sell it again one day!  It can happen, because people keep buying and selling and moving onto the next home.  When that time comes, I'll be glad to do it again.  Always a pleasure to hang out here.You'll be able to see this cute home when it's featured in an episode of Hawaii Life on the HGTV channel this fall season.  So be sure to tune in and watch every Maui episode where buyers get to choose from all the wonderful Maui homes for sale.Until then... search for Haiku Maui homes for sale right here.Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate o...

UPDATE - THE GREEK OVEN CLOSED IN JUNE 2018 - THEY MOVED BACK TO GREECE. We have been eagerly waiting for The Greek Oven to open up in downtown Haiku, in the Aloha Aina Center on Maui.  This most recent addition to the food scene is a nice little shop right across from Nuka and next to Veg Out.  Obviously they serve Greek food, and baked goods, and strive to feel like an authentic eatery on a Greek island! Inside The Greek Oven, Haiku MauiUPDATE - THE GREEK OVEN CLOSED IN JUNE 2018 - THEY MOVED BACK TO GREECE.Today was a lunch date so we headed up there to see how good the food is.  We shared a traditional Spanakopita spinach pie and a beef kebab pita.  It was so good I could have eaten it all myself, but that would be piggish!  So, we got some baklavas to bring home for later.  The fla...

Spring flowers on Maui - Yes we do have seasons in Hawaii, and you notice different trees and flowers that bloom at different times of the year.  You may not have heard of ti (pronounced tea) leaves, but they are common and almost every yard will have them.  The leaves grow all year and have many uses in the home and kitchen.  Wrap food in them for cooking, or serve food on them as makeshift paper plates.   A flowering ti plant in Haiku MauiHawaiians considered them good luck and would plant them in every corner of the yard.  You can't really have too many, and they come in a wide variety of colors and shapes.  The common green ti is everywhere and mostly seen at luaus decorating the tables or stage.  Bright red ones are beautiful, as are the variegated ones.In the spring they all bloss...
