Default My main banana garden

Just took a photo on Friday of the the most dense portion of my banana garden and thought I'd share. We had three days of frost last week but they are still holding up okay.

Pictured here are my "mystery" (unknown) banana, possibly Namwah, Dwarf Brazilian, Raja Puri, SH3640, Lodi Cold Hardy, Ice Cream, Belle, Praying Hands, and San Jose.

I don't really remember for sure, but I think we warmed up to the 50s and 60s. I don't know that this is entirely accurate, but this is what is showing at Wunderground:

I have a different thread on my Ae Ae. My slightly variegated whatever (not basjoo) is looking torn up still after our 10/13 storm (it's in a less sheltered area and it's only put out one leaf since then). My other variegated banana is a Tanna which only has one leaf and is in my greenhouse. i May post a photo of my crowded greenhouse before long, just finished putting in a high shelf (aka second story).

They pretty darn nice for surviving 3 days of frost! Must have been a very light frost.

I didn't really see any frost on my plants, but I did run a smudge pot for a bit and then sprayed them with water at the coldest part of the morning, (i.e., 32F Friday at 6:30am). The frost was pretty heavy on my garage roof and pickup on Friday, moderate the other two days.
