I just took this photo for a friend in New Hampshire who had asked me if we grew bananas here. Someone there would be surprised by the things that grow here.
I took the picture a few meters from my house, leaning against a guava tree. In the foreground are bananas and, within the fence, our mulch pit for grey water. Behind is a pine in the middle with a mango to its left and an oak (Encino) to its right. And, no, no snow here. :-)
