    Pit fruit season is upon us: peaches, plums, nectarines and cherries in all their juicy glory. And there is so little time to experience these fragrant delights. Not only is their prime season fairly short, but they can go from ripe to rotten quickly, so you really do need a game plan before you buy. Here are several of my favorites to enjoy now.

    Following a week-long 50th Anniversary Team Member Spirit Week of games and interdepartmental competitions, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel employees made the largest donation ever recorded by Hawaii Island Food Basket from a hotel. That is according to Food Basket volunteers David Haalilio Sr. and David Haalilio Jr. who pulled in with their van expecting approximately 2,000 pounds of food. Instead, with the help of Mauna Kea Beach Hotel staff, they packed the Hawaii Island Food Basket van with 6,579 pounds of canned goods, bottled water and bags of rice.

    Though many think we have eternal summer here, most of us and our plants know better. Today’s summer solstice marks the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The sun rose at 5:46 a.m. and will set at 7:06 p.m. Today, we will soak up more than 13 hours of sunlight. That’s a lot of tropical sun for us and our plants.

    Today is Father’s Day. It is also the official first day of the astronomical summer and the summer solstice, meaning the sun has reached its northern most position in the sky — at 6:39 a.m. for Hawaii Island. In the Northern Hemisphere, it also corresponds to the longest day — 13 hours, 20 minutes — and shortest night. What better way to celebrate this trifecta than with a garden project that you can use to support the love of gardening, make great use of the long day, and to do something that will benefit all of us in Hawaii?
