#Feijoa bounty!

I really miss the taste of Feijoas!!!

Meeka's Mind

Just have a look at my harvest of feijoa!

And the trees are still groaning with fruit:

The two trees shown above are about seven years old, but this year is the first time we’ve had a crop. And it’s all due to mushroom compost! I fed the two trees in early spring, and I’ve watered them over most of the summer and it’s insane how much fruit they’ve given back.

The Offspring and I have been eating them for two weeks now, and I’ve given bagfuls to the neighbours, but I think I’ll have to put some out by the front gate tomorrow with a sign that reads – FREE to a good stomach.

cheers

p.s. some of you may know the feijoa as the pineapple guava. 🙂
