Power Distribution For the South Road Next

Last year we installed 120/240 volt power distribution to the lots on the middle road.
The two fastest growing coconuts just happen to be under the power lines.
Unfortunately they need to go once they grow up into the power lines.
 Can't remember where  those starter nuts came from but wow this variety is fast growing.
 I have collected and planted coconuts from all over Belize. 

In front of the power poles we put out 100 miniature royal palms. They will grow to full maturity and never get into the wires. They look nice, to boot.

This year we have paid for the installation of power distribution on the south road.
The next time I see this (April 2014) there will be power distribution along the fence line.
This power distribution will supply lots #14 to #18 with 120/240 volt power.
Then in the following wet season we'll have a 100 miniature palms to set in front.
They obscure the power poles and provide a nice clean green look in the fore front.
Here is a pic of a miniature palm emerging with the first shoot.
Here's a hundred or more mini palms
And yet a couple hundred more... if you got them plant them!

Moving Foreword

Very exciting times around Cohune Acres. Chef Rob and Corrie from Hopkins bought a little slice of jungle paradise. Seems they are looking to grow some supplies for the food chain or hobby farm, they are not decided. With the rich soil we have there, they have made a good choice. When you see the skinny red car turning into Cohune Acres you'll know they are around.
 Sure would like to order more SOLD signs ... make me an offer lets see what happens!
Here are some pics from an outing April 2012. My Maya buddies have a farm up in the hills just south of Mama Noots Eco Lodge, Zip Line and Water Fall Repelling. I like to help them take a heavy load down when the weather has cooperated enough for the treacherous road to dry up.
Monico packing plantains on his 58th birthday. Very heavy load.

The edge of their farm still a long hike to the Jeep.
Starting the load... by the time we were finished it was a slow trip down into Silk Grass.
Didnt' want to bust a spring or  a shock. Not even room for a passenger, just plantains.
My friends in Silk Grass, Juan and family minus daughter Marisela. I think she was at cadets or school.

Angelo's kids.
Golden hour lighting at the roadside BBQ Silk Grass.
That's it for today.
