Yesterday afternoon I had a nice visit with Jon (pitangadiego) and brought home a Dwarf Brazilian and 1000 Fingers for planting. Here they are this morning still in pots, with the 1000 Fingers on the right.



Later this year I'll be adding a Dwarf Namwa on the far left, a Dwarf Orinoco and a Sweetheart in the middle, and a Kofi on the far right.

Looks promising, Richard. Only problem is that new beds tend to fill up quicker than expected, huh!?!?! Believe me, I know... Keep us updated to its progress...

Recently I received a Dwarf Oronico in a triangle tube from mskitty38583, and today I received a Sweatheart in a box from bencelest! Shortly I'll obtain a Dwarf Namwa from pitangadiego and perhaps next year some Kofi TC's from MediaHound. Time to start digging my plat.

My friend Mitch came by yesterday and brought a young Ice Cream banana as a gift.



Here it is this morning covered with rain droplets.

After over-wintering in a half-buried 15-gallon pot, my Sweetheart banana is now pushing out pups -- sideways! Jon warned me about this ...



By the way, those pups have already left town.
