    As I write this, wonderful aromas are emanating from the crockpot in my kitchen. Earlier, I put a pork butt in there, squeezed the juice of three fresh oranges over the pork, sprinkled it with cumin, chili powder and salt, tossed in a chopped shallot, and put on the lid. Carnitas for dinner, and so easy. I didn’t need to measure anything, and the best part is that the citrus will balance the fat in the pork, provide a great sauce, and help tenderize the meat. Just serve a little salsa and some avocado slices on the side, along with warm tortillas, and have a dollop of sour cream or yogurt available.

    The Hawaii Chapter of the American Bamboo Society started on the Big Island more than 20 years ago and until now, most members from here. Nursery folks like Susan Ruskin and Peter Berg of Quindembo Nursery have been responsible for introducing more than 100 valuable species to our island. These now may be found in many farm and garden landscapes. So much interest in growing and using bamboo has been generated, that residents of Maui are expanding membership there. Ryan Zucco, of Whispering Winds Bamboo Maui, is spearheading the effort and will be coming to the Hawaii Chapter meeting next Sunday in Captain Cook.

    On Dec. 13, Gov. David Ige signed off on, and thereby finalized, significant increases in fees charged by the Department of Transportation Harbors Division. These charges are assessed each time cargo enters or leaves a Hawaii port. Under the Harbors Division’s administrative rules, these fees will increase 17 percent beginning on Feb. 1; they will increase another 15 percent on Oct. 1; they will increase another 15 percent on July 1; and they will increase on July 1 of each year thereafter, by either 3 percent or the consumer price index rate, whichever is higher.

    PUULOA — Ann Milne invited me to her property five years ago to discuss revitalizing her tropical garden. We both knew it had the potential to be lovely, but when I revisited it recently, I was dazzled by its beauty.
