Feijoa (Pineapple Guava) only blooms on second year wood so after a hard pruning last year, the tree was just a big leafy green muppet looking thing.

Now that the weather is warming up again, however, the tree is blooming like there’s no tomorrow. The flowers don’t have much of a scent, but they are quite wonderful to look at. And, for whatever reason, the mockingbirds absolutely love them. Mid-mornings the tree is so full of those noisy squawkers it’s almost deafening.

Looks like this fall we’ll have a ton of fruit.

But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
