This morning, two biochemists came to visit our property. They have a lab about 30 minutes down the highway (on the way to San Jose) and Kevin had gone to see their operation last week with our friends Roger and Larry. The biochemists asked if they could come and see what our issues were specifically, to make sure they were producing the correct formula for us to apply. We showed them our avocado trees and they confirmed that tiny insects were the culprits. Although insects are also attacking our lemon and lime trees, they're different kinds and therefore we need a different formula for those. They told us not to worry, if we remove the diseased leaves off the trees, spray the organic insecticides and apply an organic anti-fungal spray, we should see all our trees return to health. Yay! We're so happy to have found a true organic solution. It feels good.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
