Default Re: Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter

I just wanted to thank everybody for the response that I've received to this thread. I have had requests from people to post this thread on their own websites, others have shared this thread with their plant clubs, some have PM'ed me thanking me for posting the information...the list goes on and on. I receive about an email or PM every couple of weeks about this thread still, and it was made last November. I want to state that most of what I've learned about storing bananas and growing them in my zone, has been learned from others. Much of it has been adapted to my own needs in zone 7, my small crawl space, etc. It is still an ongoing process, and I learn more every year from growing bananas. It is probably the single-most rewarding plant that I've ever grown! To be able to harvest fresh bananas grown in my own backyard for the past several years has been nothing short of awesome, every time it happens, no matter how small the bunch size (and they are SMALL this year!).

So I was looking at the number of views of this thread, and it was 2,521 at the time of this post. Wow ! I'm glad that people have been able to learn from it, and maybe one day I should write a book about my experiences. What do you think?
