With heat and rain comes Pineapples! They are so delicious and so easy to grow.
They love being ignored. We are a little cooler today. We will take it.

- Hurricane Season is Pineapple Season
  • By Jane Higgins <jhigginswear at gmail.com>
  • Date: Wed, 5 Jun 2024 07:57:49 -0400
Here is our first one for 2024.Every year’s crop is different. Although they do 
seem to start ripening at exactly the same time as last year’s . This first 
pineapple is smaller by half than last year’s first. I attribute that to 
intermittent drought in February and March. We can usually grab these before 
the birds start poking holes in them. First taste was fabulous as always. They 
are so easy to grow. 

Martha, from Antigua, your Hurricane Hunter story is awesome.Thank you for that.
May all of our roofs hold this season. The sooner we prepare the less stress we 
will have. It is constant perimeter clearing and stocking up. Just ordered  a 
third propane tank for season. Time to go up and clean and tighten solar panels 
and gutters too.

After a week of heat advisories, high humidity, rain…..at last we have 80 
degrees F right now, and gorgeous puffy clouds with blue skies. We see more 
rain coming Monday but will take the cooler cloud cover for Memorial Day 
events. Best of luck to the swimmers in beach to beach St John.

- About Last Night
  • By Jane Higgins <jhigginswear at gmail.com>
  • Date: Thu, 23 May 2024 09:31:18 -0400
We’ve had plenty of rain from this system coming up from South America.
It rained hard off and on all night. We are still hearing of rolling blackouts. 
Our off grid system allows us to have working fans and we were grateful for 
them last night. 
The tree frogs let us know when the rain let up. Opening and closing windows 
was an hourly task. You can see that more rain is coming up the island chain to 
meet the moisture coming from the SW. And a disturbance is forming north of us. 
Pretty early in the season to see the Lows marked. The Water Mon can rest now.
