May 1st of this year I posted Yes We Got Bananas, June 24th I posted Mayday, Banana Down, Debbie the tropical storm took down the tree. Three times I had promised over the past 2 years NO MORE BANANA POST.... Surprise!
I want to show you how bananas grow (trust me there is a reason) Above you can see the bananas at the top and the pod at the bottom. Each of the little lips you see on the stalk, should have been another hand of bananas. The cool temps of 52 on one night made them start dropping so only 15 bananas.
Bob chopped the tree down almost to the ground, leaving these beautiful stumps.
When the tree fell we hung the pod on one side of the swing and the 2 hands of bananas on the other side, one to ripen the other to see what it would do.
