I'm looking for a cheap place to rent on the Big Island, as soon as possible. I'm currently staying at the hostel in Hilo, but it's costing me the little money I have saved up for rent this winter. Anything will do, a shack, a couch, a floor. Just looking for somewhere safe and dry. 

Thank You!

Hello Hawaii 811 group! I'm going to Lihue for a week in end november 2012. I read the list of fruits costs from Ender below: very helpful. Any ideas where there could be a farmers market in Lihue? Anybody in that area willing to split the costs and buying wholesale with me?

Thank you for your time!

Hey Evergreen,

    Where on Maui will you be staying? Mana Foods in Paia is very reliable and well priced. I get all my fruit, however, at the farmer's market in lower Kula on Saturday morning. Keep in touch!

Papayas are pretty easy to come by here at the market, another reason I was eating a lot of them as I could easily get plenty of ripe ones. Tried bananas once or twice, harder to get them ripe and seemed like they had to be really progressed to be properly ripe (first ones I ate were fairly dark skinned, but still too starchy). And I plan on being around for a while, unless circumstances move me elsewhere for some reason. Not sure what approach I want to take towards GMO, but I'd at the least want to protect organic farmers from being sued and perhaps give them the power to sue for being contaminated! Definitely against the patenting of life forms.

Hey guys, ever wonder how much it costs to eat fruit?  I did a little work and put together a cost analysis for us.  You can find the post here: http://www.endersadventures.com/Hawaii-organic-fruit-cost-analysis....

Comment by Ender Ayanethos on April 30, 2012 at 6:49pm

Yeah, sucks doesn't it?  They will make it seem like they are organic, but you have to be very very clear about your asking and look them straight in the eye when you do.  Ask clearly multiple times and in different ways when in doubt.  People who grow organic will look like they eat only organic foods and put off a different vibe.  Replace your GMO papayas with bananas, as they're a lot easier to come by.

Also, we were talking about starting a campaign to make the big island a GMO free zone.  Don't know how long you'll be around here, but it's definitely something I'm looking to help make happen in the near future.

Just read that, seems I've definitely eaten some gmo papaya and that 'solo' variety is what I should stick to and avoid strawberry/rainbow/sunrise varieties. I hate Monsanto, so long as that company stands this country isn't free and its farmers are in danger.
