Hi Frank,

I'm not sure when I'm going to dig them now! Last year, it was around the end of October. I got some frost here two night in a row a few days back, so my plants have had their tops bronzed pretty good. A shame too, because I wanted to keep a few leaves in tact on some of the larger ones. Oh well...maybe next year. The frost was about 2 weeks early here. Funny thing is that it looks like the UT campus didn't get a bit of frost! I went to the UT Gardens today, and they still had their bananas out, untouched by frost. I would end up in the worst microclimate in Knoxville !

No frost due here for a while, so I may just wait until November.
