No big deal –
just an update as I put the report back up on the web.
Appeal 2: I did go
ahead and appeal the “obvious” rejection. It went in Oct 21, and they are supposed to act on it within 60 days,
so we may get a Christmas present. It is about time we harvested the fruits of our labors.
(The picture is of
some tasty tropical fruits picked in the yard of the Mountain House in Hawaii. Photo by Isabella Gioia. On top is an open
passion fruit, or “lilikoi” as we call them. This one is a hybrid between the common yellow and purple varieties.
The tangerines are “Freemont”, which is my favorite for our microclimate. And the papayas are the way I like them
the best, just starting to turn yellow.)
