Default Re: no more stalled bananas!

The first ones are finally ripening! They never got any bigger than shown in my photos, but they're turning yellow, rapidly, and they taste fantastic - but with a strange but not unpleasant undertaste, probably having something to do with air pollution and rock-hard water and, well, the drought. I guess now is the time to cut the stalk and then the tree - will a banana tree fit into a Prius?

Tied a rope around the Namwah and pulled with all my might, got it somewhat more perpendicular to the earth but still at an angle. Its stalk is just beginning, a few weeks behind my second Hawaiian apple stalk.

And an oriole (probably Hooded, maybe Bullock's or Scott's) has built a fantastic nest under one of the Namwah leaves - long fine threads of some fiber, woven intricately into a basket and lashed to the central vein, so the leaf shelters the nest. This is her second nest this year in the banana trees - the babies flew off just as the leaf entered its final days. She gets very upset whenever I'm around down there, which is like every day. I'll post a pix when it cools down a bit.
