I was there. It was fun something for the wife and kid to do while I was listening to Greg and deciding what I was going to buy that I did not have. It was nice to hear how excited all the new banana growers where to try and grow bananas. It was nice that thanks to this site I could answer most of the questions. I also learned a few new things that I could try next season. Sorry no pics.

Usually falls on the third weekend in October. Great place to get large plants pretty cheap.

I have never been, sounds like fun. On average what kind of price could I expect and how large of a plant?
