Official State Soil: Hilo 
November 9th 

Dear Nicky & Jess,
Wow! The Hilo soils here in Hawaii are truly exciting! We're less than 30 miles from an active volcano, and these rich volcanic ash soils support some wonderfully exotic botanical varieties like ginger, macadamia, and papaya! 

Yours truly,
Aunt Maude and Uncle Buster

P.S. It's time to start the tomato seedlings.
