Default Re: coming here to learn and share

sounds like you are a quite a bunch!

Am looking forward to this.
l have recently arrived at a place in life where I can settle down a bit. (hopefully no more moves)

As I said, I really enjoy gardening. I love all fruits and fruit trees. Unfortunately, this area is prone to late frosts. We loose our peaches and apricots most the early warm brings out the blossoms which then are killed by the late frosts.

This started my quest to find late bloomers for this area. (I will be a grafting fool for the next few years...Playing with the the known late bloomers, various scions and rootstocks....)

One site led me to the never previously considered bananas....Which I learned I could grown in a container and bring inside for the cold season. That led me here.

I can't remember any such undertaking (bananas) that I have jumped into with no previous knowledge or exposure. BUT, it just seems to fit in so well with the direction my hobbies are taking in life.

Heck, as there has been no other, perhaps I can call bananas and fruit trees my 'mid life crisis.'

Thanks for the welcomes. I am looking forward to going bananas.

I have several hours or reading to do before I can even ask the right is it too late in the season to start...(would be nice to not have to wait, like I will with my other trees) What varieties would be best to start my area?,
Are there any dwarf variety that can live indoors, always, and bear fruit? When I showed my wife some nana pics, she told me that she wants a couple dwarfs for inside the house.
and other such questions.... Surely most of the questions have already found answers in the forum.

thanks again.
