    Love that story. I also have bunches of plátanos from trees that I inherited when I bought my home. As a born and bred New Yorker, it is thrilling to be close to nature.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen as big a bunch of bananas! I see lots of banana bread and banana cake soon, and lots of bananas to share with nearby friends as well! I’m fascinated by the flower, too — is that your reflection?

      I love my life, even with present restrictions. I don’t love conditions in the world and in our government, but I’ve only seen kindness here so far. With the exception of one very angry and rude man in the bank the last time I had to go there..hope I don’t run into him again.

      I love it. The banana tree dies after it fruits and has to be replanted. The papaya tree last 8 years so we try to start a new one so it reaches maturity before the old one dies. No greater luxury than picking your own fruit straight off the tree. And no fruit sweeter. These bananas are heaven and the papaya sweeter than ones in the market.
