    Getting together with a few friends for the big game next Sunday? If you’ve been drafted as a first-string munchie-maker, here’s your game plan: Make food the day before so you can relax and enjoy the game. Blitz them with finger foods, so you won’t need utensils that require post-game cleanup: Just a pile of napkins and some paper plates. No matter which team wins, you will score points for great food.

    Tom asks: Those of us in North Kona have been asked to cut back our water use by 25 percent for the next month or so while some wells are being repaired. We aren’t getting much rain so I’m afraid my plants will suffer with less water? Any suggestions for water-wise watering?

    As days get longer, we are seeing many seeds, bulbs and plants from temperate mainland nurseries shipped to Hawaii. We may even see tulip, hyacinth and daffodil bulbs. These are usually grown as potted plants and treated as annuals in the tropics. Low chill fruit trees like apple and peach are also for sale. When it comes to woody shrubs, hydrangea, camellia and roses are the most readily available.
