In the sign of Banana
It’s the last day of the year, time to make this card about my Banana experience.
Just two years ago, we planted our first Banana tree and I guess the place is just perfect, it growed like crazy.
And big surprise, in June it started blooming. Such a beautiful flower .
And with every leaf opening a row of little fuit flowers showed up. If you suck it, it’s very sweet like sirup.
Continuesly the leafs open while the fruits on the top start slowly to grow into Bananas.
At some point, when the fruits get the heavy on the stem, it doesn’t grow new fruits but the fruit continues to open leaves.
That’s in September, it looks a bit like an Elephant dingdong (just a guess) 😬
We had two stems with flowers both with dozens of Bananas. Finally end of October they were ready to take.
In total, we farmed more than 190 Bananas 🍌. So we shared with our neighbours, some we cut in chunks and put into the freezer for making shakes later.
Fun fact, people told us before the fruits will not grow here in the area 🐒
Let’s see what the new year brings 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌
