Also called Bitter melon.  An Okinawan delicacy.  I fell in love with this when we lived on Okinawa.  I have never seen it this big!   It can be very bitter if you don't know how to prepare it, but you learn to love and crave it.

Ron said that it was OK to post this for the Maui Group.  I cannot fulfill his request.  Can someone out there help this customer?  Steady income for someone.

I thought that with the green smoothies, (we are still keeping up with at least 2 green smoothies a day), Larry and I would be impervious to illness, and we would be role models of health.

I was born in the year of the Dragon.  In the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of the Dragon is considered the luckiest.   2012 is also bears the elemental sign of "water" or Water Dragon....  A good year to do Aquaponics!  We have learned a lot, made numerous mistakes and have grown tremendously and are excited about the possibilities 2012 will bring.

It's funny how people know when Larry and I try to totally go green, or live.  On Thursday got a chunk of  home made bread and Friday got my favorite kind of banana bread...the kind with raisins and chunky walnuts....  we ate the entire loaf...with our green smoothies.

Thank you Pavel for our chickens.   They are so cute.   Today was their first day in the yard.  It took us a while to get the chicken wire to cover the top of the fenced in area.  (to keep them from flying out).

I’ve spent the last few days mulling over a very perplexing problem.  Over the past few days, I have lost almost all of my Golden tilapia in a tank connected to my sprouting system.  This seemed to come suddenly, as they looked healthy and frisky last week.  Water chemistry readings taken on 3/9/12, just prior to this die-off  all looked good.  Assessment follows:

It is getting easier to make smoothies every day.  Spinach is an excellent choice to put into a smoothie. I have not been successful at growing regular green spinach in our system....  Okinawan Spinach,  however, grows like a weed.

Since February 11th, Larry and I have been drinking one to two green smoothies blenderfuls a day.  Today I will try and drink 3 green smoothies.  This is inspired by our daughter Vickie who is the Green Smoothie Queen.   She has lost about 20 pounds drinking green for two meals and a regular dinner.  My smoothie will be a little different:  in my Vitamix for 30 seconds combine the following:
