One thing that’s great about Hawaii is that a lot of people have fruit trees in their backyards. Well, I wasn’t one of these lucky people, so I decided to do something about it. Meet my beautiful, tiny (but growing) baby papaya tree. I got it about a month ago, and it’s actually growing! I took these photos a few weeks apart and you can actually see that there are more leaves on the bottom pic. I definitely do not have a natural green thumb, since I’ve probably killed more plants than … wait a minute, I think I usually kill all of them ;) But I’m going to change from my evil plant-killing ways and nurture my baby tree to be full-grown and fruit-bearing. Wish me luck!

(Only six more days until I get to go home and see my family … yay! Hmmm … I guess I’ll need a papaya tree babysitter …)
