Water is not so much of an issue at this location, it is pretty wet most of the time. Killing the grass is the next thing on my to do list. But I will only kill it in the row of the banana plants, and will not till. That grass allows me to get around the farm even when it is wet.

On the left Dwarf Puerto Rican Plantain. On the right, African Rhino Horn.
An older picture of this location is further down the thread. Still no flowers.

It looks good, should be soon.

You are really lucky to have all that grass adding nutrients to your plantains.

It's great how the roots of the grass keep the top of the soil nice and loose.

It gets mowed maybe once per month. Every 3 months cows pass through it.

Nick --- put a rope on that thing and stake it. I'm seeing big wind gusts also this past week. My ARH is still a pup.

Huge new leaf on the PK got folded over. Will have to get the 12 ft ladder out to unfold it and set the new cigar leaf free.
