I planted my guava tree 4 months ago from a baby plant given by Mr Goh, my customer who owns an orchard in Tambun. When i planted this, it was only 1 feet tall with only one branch, no laterals. Now this tree has not grown very tall but has spread into a small bush, around 1.5 feet tall in ground. I leave this plant with Roy in Roy's Residence and seldom go to check on how it is doing until 3 days ago i went and found some little fruits on this little tree! - Please correct me if those are not fruits (too excited to see these buttons already, haha).

Leaves are getting eaten by grasshoppers and some fruit flies, and also attacked by pest...
I just wonder how many of you out there are using chemical pesticides in your home garden especially on veggies and fruit trees? I want no harmful chemicals anywhere near my edible plants, any solutions and (organic) concoctions that i can hear from you?
(My current bug-buster recipes are: soap water, vinegar and milk.)
And i'm working today huhuhuhuhuhu
