That beautiful palm tree, part IV

     The 'nuts and fronds we're dealing with now are from mature trees, trees that were already on False Bluff when this project began.   The maintenance issue's going to get much worse when the 400 or so newly planted trees begin to bear. The loss of mature trees from time to time don't make a noticeable difference in grounds maintenance.

     Some Bluefields residents who visit me at False Fluff exclaim how pretty the place is, and then chastise me in a quiet aside that the coconut trees I've planted won't bear to their fullest potential because I've planted them too close together. I'm just hoping some agriculturalist somewhere develops a coconut tree that doesn't produce 'nuts!
