Default Fifth Birthday for the basjoo patch.

May 5th 2012 was the beginning of my banana odyssey, a friend at work convinced me to try my hand at growing one. He sold me a pup and I transformed a weedy spot behind my barn into a little tropical sanctuary.

This is what it looked like after year one.


The patch kept expanding over the years and dozens of pups have been moved elsewhere on the property. This next one is from 2015.


Finally, this is the patch from last week, well advanced, maybe a month ahead of 2014 and 2015.


The main goal this year is to divide up some of the massive corms.
