Default Times have changed!

Years ago I was very active here and grew over 30 varieties of bananas. Getting a Gros Michel plant was akin to catching a leprechaun! I did manage to get a couple at great expense sent from Hawaii but didn't get fruit from them. So after almost a decade off from growing bananas to concentrate on my new farm business I decided to grow a few plants. A quick internet search revealed that this formerly non existent variety is now readily available and at reasonable prices! Needless to say I got a few and have been growing these for a couple months from 4" starter plants.

Back then I didn't believe I'd ever actually eat one unless I traveled abroad or got lucky enough to have some ripen here (I'm in zone 6 and it's a crapshoot) but I just discovered Miami Fruit and even though they were a bit pricey eating a Gros Michel was on my bucket list and Now I'm a couple days from actually eating one! I have some in a paper bag with some apples and theyre starting to turn after only two days,

Welcome back, Bob. I'm still slacking off, just don't cause trouble here because that makes some work for me.

How has your farm business gone?

Good to see you Harvey. The farm is going good I'm doing organic ( not certified) vegetables. I was raising Berkshire pigs and poultry but it was too much work. I should have done this when I was 20 and not 50!
