Happy Camper for Monday, June 19, 2023

What is more fun, Jayd Javier, fluffling the trash bags in the whispering Puhi wind, or the air horn that mom uses to signal the start of The Grove Farm Market?

Ferdinand Dosono of Kaua‘i Kim Chee was stoking the “big fire” for all those pork belly (it’s Father’s Day!) waiting to be cooked, and the University of Hawai‘i Master Gardeners were looking ahead at being at the Kaua‘i County Farm Bureau agricultural festival (Pastor Darryl Kua of the Westside Christian Center said the Kekaha Community Association hosts July 4th at the H.P. Faye Park again! — said the farm bureau wanted no rain, and the weather cooperated).

Farmer Mayette Loseto ran out of time to get her langsat lazones entered into the Fruit and Vegetable Show, and Wirat Farms has a new machine to crank out sugarcane water. Meephol Farms’ keiki, Jedi Meephol and Pi‘ilani Ishida, were busy getting acquainted with Orion McAfee while mom Ursa of Midnight Bear Breads (it’s amazing how much the keiki grew during the COVID shutdown!) set up before Jayd’s mom sounded the horn.

Jude Huber (she said they had more than 70 customers waiting at the pop-up farmers market at The Shops at Kukui‘ula!) had fun with the Kaua‘i sugarloaf pineapple while waiting for the horn.
