Elvauating the island near Hana...too steep for almonds
Where have I been? Your Almondfarmer recruited the family to help evaluate Maui as a place to grow almonds. Unfortunately we found the island to be wholly unsuitable for almond farming. Steep terrain, sea breezes, lack of chilling and nearly continuous pleasant conditions are just some of the impediments. The trip was not a total loss however since we discovered it may be a nice place to vacation and we hope to return some day with less focus on work.
