End of April 2014 update.

1 May

Surprisingly, my neglected garden isn’t as bountiful as it was when I tended to it more. Peaches are small, blueberries are fewer…

Still, the few I get taste good.

My pineapple guava is flowering once again, I think last year it didn’t do so much.

And excitingly, my olive tree is flowering. The flowers are tiny! I just bought this little tree about a month or two ago.

Finally, my fennel is starting to look like fennel. Boy these take a long time to grow but are very pretty plants.

Pineapple guava shedding leaves but still a couple of fruit left

6 Nov

I have probably had a dozen little strawberry sized pineapple guavas this year which I am most impressed with as I wasn’t expecting anything. The pulpy center has a very fragrant purfumey taste which my hubby described as soapy but to me, they taste like mixed, tropical, miscellaneous fruit flavour ­čÖé

This is a medium sized head cabbage – I got about half a dozen nice sized heads and one that I had to throw away as the bugs got into it. First time growing cabbage so I am pretty happy. This one was grown in a narrow wooden patio box I usually plant strawberries in.

Also nice to see the pineapple guava fruiting as I read you need to pollinate them with another plant. I have a strawberry guava plant too but it did not flower this year.

I love picking a few ripe peaches everyday before work/school. Uploading pix as a record of how much I get. I guess I can count them… Or post pics of every harvest ­čÖé

I bought two of these plants recently from different stores. they look a little different  but both were pretty cheap for fruit trees.I read that you need two to pollinate each other. They make pretty little patio trees. Hope they will bear fruit this year although I have never even seen or eaten a pineapple guava!
