Default Winter Update

Here are by banana progress photos from the end of 2012

This was a very small spear pup I took right before winterization. I thought it was a gonner, his brother didn't make it. A few weeks ago I chopped the brown stem and liquid oozed for a few days. It looked dead again. A week or so ago I peeled away some of the dead and found this. At least it's still green!

Here's a sucker pup taken at the same time. It's grown like crazy.

This photo was one of four I chopped from the mat around August.

It wilted badly for over a month then finally a leaf grew. The other two have grown since the end of October when I brought them all inside. Growing very slowly, there is yet another leaf popping out! I might just get a bigger pot for this one and leave it potted next summer, I'm not sure yet.

Anyway, Happy New Year everyone! Happy growing in 2013 since we're all still here!

Glad that it made it

On a traffic light green means go and yellow means yield, but on a banana it's just the opposite. Green means hold on, yellow means go ahead, and red means where the hell did you get that banana at...
