Thank you for both of you Cookiecow and Mskitty. I am glad some people appreciate my work.
Thank you again.
And yes, it will be a jungle this Summer.And I have more bananas on order.
It is so addicting. Even if you have no more place to put them but you want more!

Here's how my pergola plat my project look like as of 4 4 08. I planted annuals and some flowers and are just starting to bloom .There are many new buds coming out on all the plants but they are not visible yet. I'll wait another 2 weeks. Notice also that the bananas are starting to have spears.

Thanks, Mskitty. And sure, I'll work for you. When I am done with my work.
But I never get done with my work! As my wife said to me: Finish one project first before you start another...........
Here's my projects:
1. Renovate 1st floor bedroom 1 1/2 years old.
2. Tiles the bathroom upstairs 1 year ago.
3. Patch a hole which I created when I was running wires and pipes for gas range in the kitchen
4. And lots of others more.......
Now in the backyard project......
Things that never done........1,2,3,......... Oh, boy!!!!!
Just kidding Mskitty.

i understand the finish one project before you start another one. i have some of those myself. i get half way through one and im board with it and i think ill just set this one to the side and do something else...then the first one never gets done. by the time i get around to the first project, i have 15 others that are half done. lol! well i dont have a problem with the jobs outside, i like being outside...its the ones inside i dont finish.

We are in the same boat Mskitty.
When I wake up in the morning, usually it is still dark, I can't sit quiet still I want to pull the Time so it is daybreak already so I can inspect my bananas.

On Joe's dwarf Brazilian, the newest leaf is half as small and 3/4 as short as the others. What can that be?

Hi Brian:
As for the varieties I don't have many maybe 7 or 8. I just keep separating them when their pups are big enough.
I'll let you know when I count them in a few days or so.
I just got so busy lately I did not have time to do what I wanted to do.

Looks great Benny! Someone must have taken good care of your babies when you were away. I'm so envious at the brightness of the sun in your pictures. And also the fruits from your trees!

What's the temperature looking over there now? 'Cuz here in Seattle there are mornings that are still in the high 30s.

Sorry I did not respond right away. I just got too busy. Many Thanks to Chong, Mskitty and Microfarmer for your nice comments.

Here's another pic of my Dwarf Brazilian the 2nd small leaf. It's kinda weired looking.
