Ene’s Winter Garden 2

pineapple guavafreshly picked Pineapple Guava (Feijoa sellowiana) from Ene’s Winter Garden

I never notice our pineapple guava bush, which frames the back entry to our vegetable garden, until the ripe fruit drops from its branches. This morning I picked most of the feijoa, about 2 gallons, which we’ll make into salsa, smoothies and muffins. As always, I’m open to suggestion and would love to hear of any good recipes. While gathering the feijoa I was struck by the misty morning light streaming across the meadow and into the garden, and thought to make a few photos of Ene’s Winter Garden, in response to numerous requests after my recent post.

  1. We had a group of Hmong students visit the Copia garden once. They went straight for the guavas and ate them with fresh hot chiles. I dust them with chile powder. They are also good in a sorbet.
