Sorry Patty, But i do really think this was fun.
Ive been really busy not just with my roomate but my 13 month old niece got bit by a black widow spider and Aunty don't leave the kids until they are 100% out of harms way.
was horrible she needed the poison drained from the back of her neck and then i had to unpack and repack 8 inches of Gauze Tape. NON sticky but that was the worst that baby will hate me forever.
but she has a chance to live now and before life threatening.

I need some nana's but maybe will wait till the house if fully finished building a new greenhouse too all was wiped out in fire.

Hmmm....well that's disappointing. But hey, Patty, you DID get a bloom and that in itself is an amazing achievement (and I know how badly you've been wanting that). This whole thing was an inspiration to myself and no doubt many other harsh-weather banana growers....even if there were no fruits of your labor to enjoy

PS...I just noticed the rules state "Person closest to the amount - without going over, wins." Guess I didn't realize we were rocking The Price is Right rules LOL Guess I shoulda bid $1, huh?

And here's a video that might help cheer ya up:

Hmm, that sucks.

I just harvested this Namwah bunch this evening and I'd like to send you a hand of them. I think I have your address from the postcard exchange but go ahead and pm me again just in case I deleted it and I'll get some fresh bananas in the mail to you asap!



And keep your chin up Patty, it will happen sooner or later!

RaverBoi, you are right about "without going over". Well, it's either closest guess or I'll have to return all the BB's to everyone. Opinions?
It was Mitchels pic (page 2) that helped show the diff between male & female blossoms. I thought the first hand was female w/ 6 baby nanas. Then 2 more hands w/ 6 each. Within 2 days after 1st hand, they fell off to our disappointment. I PM'd Jarred & he confirmed they were males & said this is normal.

I'm protesting, you should have let me changed my guess when I had to chip in the other B$100! Just joking.

I don't like it when contests have "without going over" because it puts those who put in a guess early on at a disadvantage since those scum bags like Mitchel (just joking again) come in and bid below earlybirds like me.

Scum bag or NOT, I think Mitchel should get the $B. It's no big deal, not nearly as bad as your fruitless results.

I am very sorry to hear that Patty...Quite unfortunate. It probably didnt have much energy to give to flowering and thats why it only gave male flowers...Also excessive shade may also be responsible for it only forming male flowers and no female even if it had energy to spare...I wish you to get another inflorescence someday relatively soon though you will still have big chances of getting no bananas if shade indeed triggers only male flowering in bananas as it does in certain other plants.

I have no problem either way regarding the winner,especially after his very kind offer to send you a hand of his home grown bananas! Bravo Mitchel!!!!
Btw,i love your huge Namwah!!!I guess its not the dwarf variety but the normal Tall one,right?

I still have this IC's sister inground at my house -bought same time. There is a chance that it may flower soon too. If it does, I promise I won't have a contest LOL. I never heard of a flower not producing a nana. Maybe no one admitted this LOL.
The only real winning number would've been 0.
Hey, thanks for the condolences & support-- Chin up here

I would call this one a medium plant. It's not dwarf and not tall. It had about 10-12 feet of pseudo stem.

Thumbs up Re: Guess how many I.C. fingers...Banana Poker!

So sorry to hear this Patty but ... dont give up hope for the next one and... I learned something new so... it's not all bad. There's some good flower recipes online too. Who else in zone 5 gets even to the point that you did!

Well done just the same. I'm still proud of you.

Oh, I had no problem giving it to the closest person. Just hadn't noticed the exact rules till after it was over. I'd say give the prize to Mitchel...by the looks of it, he needs the banana bucks much more than the rest of us!
