Re: End of summer update

The garden looks really nice, Brad. I should have told you to chop off that flower tip from your banana bunch. It causes the bananas to ripen much faster. But it would have been a long shot anyways with no leaves. My bananas are probably pushing 30' here this summer. Average highs around 88F instead of the usual 95 in summer was beneficial to most things in my garden.
Next year I need to find a spot to try out some other types of bananas. I'm pretty sure what I have is Orinocco, which is not the best tasting.
