yummy, I love bananas!!! I don't know if you blend up smoothies, but you can always freeze peeled bananas and then use them for all kinds of good smoothies! they make the texture to be like a shake.....yum, I want one now! hehe
That's a great idea, I love smoothies! Frozen bananas almost taste like ice cream to me!
Whoa COOL!! That is the cool thing about living in a tropical place, you don't even have to TRY to grow stuff. You know what you need--an avacado tree!! mmmmm...I'd come down there & take some of THOSE off your hands! hee hee!!
We also had a avacado tree and those definately come in handy!!!! They are easy to grow too.
oh man!! AWESOME! SO LUCKY! I love avacado! I grew up in Ohio so I NEVER had avacado until I moved to the west coast.
I grew up in South Africa so it was always hot and warm over therw. Now I live in The Netherlands with pretty much the same climate as the North pole...
Oh man, an avacado tree would be great!
I'm thankful we don't get frost here (well, once in the past five years, and it was like for an hour!), it means I can grow just about anything. According to the place I bought the trees from, they should be edible, normal bananas - yay!
Oh wow, they're so cute! They almost make me want to eat bananas. ;)
I can't wait to see the Tokyo inspired paintings - very exciting!
Hehe, I still can't believe you don't like bananas!
Wow, I haven't seen a banana tree in years.
I guess you'll be making a lot of banana bread when they are ripe.
Definitely! I like making it with pecans!
I too make it with pecans.
I have two peacans trees.
As long as you don't get a hard freeze, bananas will grow in most warm places. There are several dozen types of banana trees out there - some are ornamental, only some bear fruit, and of those, only some are edible, so make sure to get one that will grow good banans! They also grow really fast, ours were 8' tall in 6 months, which is what we were looking for (our house only had one lonely tree in the backyard when we bought it, and we needed shade!).
YOu can also make banana puree and freez it into ice cube tray and then put them into ziploc bags when they are frozen--then whenever you make smoothies you can just pop a few banana-cubes in there! :D
That is an excellent idea!
Back home in South Africa we also had banana trees and they grew fruit sometimes, but it didn't taste nice at all. It was never sweet like "real" bananas so if you decided to eat them, let me know how they taste :-)
Will do! These are regular edible bananas (like the kind at the grocery store), or they're supposed to be at least!
Gorgeous photo! I love the colourshades of the leaves and bananas. Woww, it is cool to be able to have a bananatree in the garden haha. We don't have the climate for it here, but they are beautiful trees :D
Hmm japan, you lucky girl ;)
Thank you Miri!
Japan was awesome!!!
How cool is that??? My kids would LOVE it at your house then!! :P
Hehehe, I'll have to watch out for Matt though - he's a banana-eating Monkey!
That's probably the most popular fruit in my house at the moment...bananas. And I have 3 little monkeys. :P
Oh, that's so neat! I wish we could have a banana tree!
Oh how cool! Bananas=delicious.
I've always wanted to go to Japan... Glad you enjoyed it!!
