Default Looking up in my Texas garden!

Well for most of us here in central Texas we have been faced with a lot of rain, storms, tornadoes, flooding, heavy winds etc. with a break in the weather this morning it was nice to go out in my garden this morning and see this nice surprise, it's Blue Java, and the cool part is that it is early enough in the year to reach maturity. I'm a happy girl!


Happy growing all & please be safe fellow Texans!!

Darla

I know I have so to have all summer how perfect is that!

Happy growing all!

Looks nice, neighbor (I'm a fellow Texan). Where'd you get yours from? My supposed Blue Java is making bananas at our place in 9B, but I'm afraid mine might be a tall Namwah instead. When I harvest I should be able to tell (yellowish inside for Namwah vs white inside for Blue Java).

Just 3 hands on Blue Java to report with 2 hands so far on the 2nd flower. Thats ok though its just me and i can only eat so many, lol. Blue Java is a beautiful banana plant and to be honest anytime you get a banana to fruit its a beautiful thing.
Keep looking up my friends you never know what you will find.
special thanks to crazy banana for my 1st blue java pup!!

happy growing, Darla
