Our secret corner of San Francisco was “discovered” by an intrepid New York Times reporter. Back in 2011. This place has a long history as evidenced by the old sign that is now out for restoration.
Here is the article on the garden appearing in the New York Times.
Today those famous Parrots of Telegraph Hill or one of their banished tribes came for a harvesting excursion in the garden. We often hear them flying overhead but this is the first time we’ve seen them visit the garden itself. Enjoy!

Ever wondered what these delightful flowers were going to do aside from make some very happy bees?
They were going to make Feijoas or what some may also refer to as Pineapple Guavas. They are dropping at an alarming rate in the garden RIGHT NOW due to their delicious ripeness so cut one in half and scoop out the insides – they are VERY hard to find in this country.If you find too many ripe ones throw them in a blender with a banana, some mango, OJ and viola! You have a Feijoa smoothie! Enjoy!
