An Abundance of Guava

See that little tree between the tall palm trees? The next picture is a closer view - it's a guava tree in our backyard. Last year it didn't produce a thing - this year we have a bumper crop of guavas.

The 1st pic shows the green guavas still on the tree that need to ripen and the 2nd pic shows the ripe guavas that I just picked.

Look at all those lovely guavas - that's just one morning of picking! I made chicken with a guava sauce and a fruit salad with lots of guava for dinner tonight. I also plan to bring guava to church tomorrow and see if anyone wants any. Plus....guava smells SO good - the whole house smells tropical! = - )
