Piden liderazgo a Ob

Piden liderazgo a Obama sobre roerfma migratoria Washington, 28 Ene (Notimex).- El presidente de Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, debe tomar liderazgo sobre una roerfma migratoria integral en lugar de esperar una propuesta del Congreso, dijo Gabe Gonze1lez, asesor de la campaf1a Reforma Migratoria PRO Ame9rica. Sef1or presidente, por favor no espere a que el Congreso se mueva sobre la roerfma migratoria', dijo luego del discurso sobre el estado de la unif3n en el que Obama reiterf3 la vedspera su compromiso a continuar esfuerzos para legalizar a millones de indocumentados. No permita que nuestras comunidades sufran otro af1o bajo el peso de nuestro disfuncional sistema migratorio. Estaremos de su lado en cada paso expresando nuestro apoyo en las calles, en internet y en el tele9fono. Juntos podemos hacerlo, pero necesitamos su liderazgo', apuntf3.

Hi Hellie. Thank you for the comment. I hope your tree is one that can product fruit on its own. Some kinds need 2 trees 1 male and 1 female. When we were growing up mum would put the lawn clippings around the tree (not touching the trunk) and also tea leaves. It always had big juicy sweet fruit and lots of it.

Yum, FEIJOA'S!! My poor little tree I planted last year doesn't seem to be doing very well & I certainly haven't noticed any flowers yet. Maybe some strategically placed fertilizer will do the trick. :o)

Steve that is fantastic I have told my NZ Aussy friends that they need to go back to their garden centers and order some trees to plant

I only discovered yesterday that i have a fejoa tree in my front yard. Most people at work love them.
Guest - Apr 24, 2007 09:59 PM EDT
I have taken photos of the fejoa fruit and added it. I have enjoyed eating them to YUM!!!

Lynne - oooops, sorry I called you Lulu. Must have been engrossed in her alcoholic Feijoa drink. Lol. Good Luck with the growing.
Guest - Mar 24, 2007 10:13 PM EDT
Lynee good luck with growing them. they have wonderful different taste and textures. Keep in touch. We have had big storms over here and all my fruit has fallen off all of our trees including the blossoms. Bernie thank you for looking and leaving a coment. we have a few new fejoa flowers coming in so hopefully we will still get some fruit
Guest - Mar 24, 2007 05:31 PM EDT
Thanks for the advice - I'll let you know how I get on. Fingers crossed eh!
Guest - Mar 24, 2007 05:48 AM EDT
What a beautiful flower. I had no idea they looked like that. Hope you have plenty of flowers. I'll have to come up in a couple of weeks to check! Lulu. Sounds like you will be the envy of the non-Kiwis on this site. Try putting them in a shallow tray of soil first, to get seedlings. Or damp cotton wool??? I'm no gardner, but they may like to be more enclosed to star with. Egg cartons are great. And if your egg cartons are like ours, once you have the seedling, you can transfer the whole carton to the pot.

I HAVE MANAGED TO GET MY HANDS ON FEJOA SEEDS FROM A SPECIALIST SEED SUPPLIER. I HAVE PLANTED THEM INTO SMALL POTS BUT THEY DON'T SEEM TO BE GERMINATING. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
Guest - Dec 15, 2006 11:29 PM EDT
Lulu I agree. Have a drink for me.
Guest - Dec 15, 2006 03:37 AM EDT
You would have to be quick to photograph them around me. Once cut, they are eaten straight away! I'm currently drinking a feijoa drink (alcoholic too I might add). Some things are just too nice to be exclusive so we really must share.
Guest - Nov 22, 2006 10:45 PM EDT
Thank you Talsi and Mary. Yes I will take photos of the fruit whole and cut and add them.
Guest - Nov 22, 2006 12:05 PM EDT
Now that you've shown us the lovely flower you will have to photo the fruit so we can see what it looks like, whole and cut open so we can see the outer leaves and flesh.:) The flower is exotic looking and very pretty.
Guest - Nov 22, 2006 10:41 AM EDT
Interesting and a quite lovely flower.
Guest - Nov 18, 2006 03:24 AM EDT
LULU I knew you or Michael would know thank you for the answer. I am hoping the heavy winds we are getting here wont blow the flowers off so we get no fruit.
Guest - Nov 18, 2006 03:17 AM EDT
Yum, its nearly feijoa time. I must check mine. To answer an earlier question - yes, these delicious fruit are exclusive to New Zealand from what I hear. Something to keep in mind to taste when you all visit.
Guest - Nov 18, 2006 03:15 AM EDT
Hi Lorraine and Mike thanks for looking. I dont think fejoa;s are a New Zealand. I have only traveled to Australia and Rarotonga and they dont grow in either of thesen places. Ill have to investigate this. If anyone out there knows the answer I would love to know
Guest - Nov 16, 2006 04:19 PM EDT

Guest - Nov 16, 2006 04:15 AM EDT
Hi tania, glad to see you have got that camera out of it's box, lovely shot, your fejoa's are doing much better than mine.
Guest - Nov 16, 2006 12:11 AM EDT
Thank you both for your kind coments. I have friends who moved to Australia and miss haveing fejoa's. May Try asking your local garden center if they can get some seeds or seedlings
Guest - Nov 15, 2006 11:49 PM EDT
A lovely flower, nice work Tania.
Guest - Nov 15, 2006 10:38 PM EDT
Where can I get one? This is beautiful and exotic. Lucky you! Save us all seeds!
Guest - Nov 15, 2006 07:25 PM EDT
Hi Donwrob. Fejoa is a fruit it has an egg like shape and ranges in sizes. it has a eddible outer green skin (Im not fussed on) and a realy tasty cream coloured flesh it is so scrummy. It is eaten fresh, cooked, used in baking, jams, wine. this is the flower that it comes from. I love the colours and shapes.
Guest - Nov 15, 2006 06:01 PM EDT
What on Earth is a fejoa flower :-)? Doesn't matter, they are beautiful! Very nice capture, I like the shalow DOF on this one. Don
