You might be a banana fiend ......
 
Hey Y'all ,
I thought this would be a fun thing to keep going ! Please add to it !

You may be a banana hobbyist if ......

1. you buy so much fertilizer that homeland security has an eye on you .

2. You look at your plants 2-3 times a day to see how much they've grown since the last time you checked .

3. you've ever worked this problem : Dinner out 15.87
Ramen noodles - .12
total left for plant purchase 15.75

4 . Your kids were upset more than once because the "pup" you told your spouse you were bringing home was musa and not canine .

5. While plant shopping , your spouse becomes frustrated and exclaims "All you care about are bananas ." to which you reply " Not true ! I have several ensetes and 15 or so aroids !" .

6.The friends/relatives who were at your place for christmas drive around the block trying to find your house in june saying "That could'nt possibly be the same place".

7.Your "other than banana" plants (lawn ,azalea ....)grow less than 6 " per day and you wonder what the problem is .

8. Your friends tell you that you should get some parrots or monkeys .

9. You read the (entire)wiki more than once .

10. You've ever wanted to move further south just to be able to garden the way you would like .

11. You read about global warming , freak out a little , then calm down when you think "I wonder what my zone will be ten years from now ?" .

12. Your lawn is disappearing quickly with the onset of new planting beds .

13 .Your neihbors often say "they're shoveling another pile of something over there!" or "what's that smell???".

14.You spend 300 bucks to drive a few states over and visit for a few hours with a fellow grower and trade naners that would have only cost $8-$20 to ship.

:bananarow: :choochoo:
You guys keep this goin' ! It should be a lot of fun !

so much fun!

18. You check each house you drive by to see if they're growing bananas, and when you catch one from the corner of your eye, you barely avoid crashing your car as you rubberneck and take your eyes off the road!

"8. Your friends tell you that you should get some parrots or monkeys ."

19. You've already got parrots or monkeys! (We have 4 parrots)



And the rubbernecking thing is so true, and dangerous, perhaps even more so since so few people grow the cool stuff up north!

Great thread,

21. During growing season, no one wants to come to your house because if they do, they get the banana tour. In which they have to meet each and every plant, and they get the name, how big the plant should get, the description of the fruit, etc.

25 . someone mentions ice cream and you wonder if you'll get a bloom this year (you wonder if blue java is one of the 48 flavors).

In regards to "rubbernecking" , my wife swears I hit the guardrail on every overpass in New Orleans.

Thanks to you folks for playing along . It's always so funny to read things that we all write and think..."OMG, I can relate!!!":discocrazed:

IF...

26. You dig up 20 or more plants out of your garden every year, drag them each (sometimes weighing quite a bit!) into a crawl space with 3 feet of head room (or less), then turn around in the spring and drag them all back out again and plant them BACK in the garden...just to hope to get a couple of bunches of fruit that will probably amount to 10 bananas per bunch if you're lucky.

Wow. I just had a revelation. I am a seriously ill person!
