They all blew over

The bananas and plantains, that is. I was sure posted this during the week but for some reason I don't see it - must have been dreaming or something.

The bananas in front were somewhat sheltered so a few of them remained standing.

The ones in the backyard got hit hard - all of them had to be chopped off because they were all broken.

And likewise the plantains. These are still young - never had any fruit from these, but they will spring from the root.

In fact, they have continued to grow from the heart and have already put back on a couple of leaves, but I'm not sure they will still be able to bear fruit. They are very resilient, and I'm pleased with their recovery so far.


  • Hi Jade,
    You seem to have a little bit of everything! I wish we could grow bananas, we consume a lot of them. Can you grow pineapples? (I hope this isn't a duplicate--I'm having trouble sending)

  • Fruit trees in the back (mango, orange, lime, pear, cherry, breadfruit, ackee, coconut, soursop, papaya), cacti and succulents (and a couple of other things) in the front. I don't grow pineapples - never tried but I know we could since my neighbour does.

    It's nice to be able to eat from our property even while being in the middle of the city.

  • Wow! You are lucky to be able to grow so many varieties of fruit. We have citrus here, but not much else in the way of fruit, at least in the low desert. But then, we don't have hurricanes--so that's something to be said!
