Default What two weeks in Hawaii did to my garden

I just returned from two weeks on the big Island of Hawaii. In two weeks my plants exploded! I have two bananas throwing flowers. These were labeled dwarf Orinoco's. They are 15 plus feet tall and not dwarf. I also have an Ice Cream that should be popping out a flower soon. Even the AeAe have more pups!

My guava trees are getting buds and my papayas are ripening. Last year we harvested over 300 Guavas.

I have another banana tree with fruit on it.

My heliconia are flowering and I have a pineapple fruiting.


My Plumeria are also getting flowers.

My garden must have known I was in Hawaii looking at properties so it exploded. I filled up four green waste garbage pails cleaning up. It looks like a jungle. I will post seperate pictures from our trip. Our moving date has been shortened. Me and my girls at the black sand beach.

Aloha Harvey, We saw some great properties. I will try to post some pictures and real estate info. Now for my 4 ruptured discs, my girls are only little once! A little pain never hurt anyone! We had a great two weeks!

Great pics, Andrew! My wife and I stopped off at one of the black sand beaches while we were on the Big Island. It was called Punalu'u. Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

It all looks wonderful to me. I wish you luck in Hawaii. My parents loved it there when they vacationed there many years ago. I thought about moving there as well, but I certainly don't have the money to do so.

It's a shame that you'll have to leave your gardens behind including your bananas. I guess you'll have to start all over again

I did the opposite. I left Hawaii and moved to New Jersey. Had to leave everything behind in Hawaii.

I'm sorry to hear that. I was born there. It's not a bad place just way to cold for me and my plant addiction. Santa Barbara has gotten to cold for me.
