I’d never heard of Feijoas (Pineapple Guava) until I stayed in New Zealand as an exchange student many years ago. My host family lived on a ten acre property and had a magnificent Feijoa hedge/wind-break on one side of the house. It yielded buckets over several weeks and I ate hundreds of the unique-tasting fruit raw and learnt to cook many new recipes using them. I have two growing in our yard and although they have a long way to go to reach the height of the NZ hedge, they’ve survived a couple dry summers and I’m sure we’ll be eating Feijoas before long
The Jade plant is supposed to bring money or good luck. I can never remember whether it is meant to be situated on the left or right side of the front door for best advantage, and even if I did remember . . . is it the left or right going in or going out? And, I’ve also heard that one needs another plant at the back door to keep the money or good luck in. At my former home I had several plants at both the front and back doors and on both sides . . . mostly because they grew well there more than to attract money. I don’t know if this pot is on the best side of the door but it is thriving and seems to love its position

We’ve had some very welcome rain over the past few days which is great but, not so great is my internet connection which either doesn’t connect or dies after a few minutes My replies have been sparse lately but I will catch up. We’ve had this problem before and it has recovered in the past so my fingers are crossed.
I’m off to town soon and hoping my snail mail box is filled with great stories and poems
