Looking good, couple more weeks and spring will be here! This is one of my favourite threads, always waiting for u to update since we are so close. Are u home for the summer this year Matt? If so u will have to keep us up to date. Love your palms, my washy is just pushing its first non-strap leaves finally, and I have a few trachys not far behind. What is the other palm u have on the table in the pic from March 2nd? Keep posting updates when u can.

U got those plants in the GTA??? Where abouts? What other types did they have? Looks like you scored big time!

DF looks like a yellow fruited type based on the thorns, but I'm Canadian so can never be an expert ;-)

Looks really good Matt! I agree with Brady on it being a favorite; it's been great to follow your gardening journey over the years with all these pictorial updates

Congratulations on getting employment! I'm working for a while during the summer as a work-study and it's such a good feeling to be working towards a paycheck that I can pump at least a bit of into my plants!

How old is that DC for you to be expecting it to fruit soon?

Wow, I'm in the tropics and your bananas are outperforming mine. Definitely won me over to container gardening; how big's that pot?

Man that DC is looking pretty close. Your washy looks like its starting to push spears pretty good as well. Mine is still pretty slow, but with this heat hopefully things will speed up. My GN/DC looked like it might have been pushing up a pre preflag on the weekend but I would prefer a leaf or two more first. But like abnshrek said: "3 hands in spring/summer is better than 10 in the fall for us up north."

Removing those sunburnt leaves wont help the plant, just make it look a little nicer. There is still some photosynthetic tissue left in those leaves so leaving them there will actually probably help the plant a bit. I always find once there are a few nice new leaves the plant will take off and then drop those leaves on its own.

Anyway we can get some id's on the group photos? Hows your DF?

Looking good! (Is that a puddle of water that one on the left in the first photo's in?)

What Brady said; there's still a lot of green in those damaged leaves so the plant is still using them to make food. If you don't want to look at them you can take them off; up to you. Either way your bananas are coming along nicely; thanks for the update
