Banana Harvest Time

After a year, my new crop of bananas was finally ripe and ready to be cut off the bunch. I ended up carrying  34 pounds of bananas  up to the house in two trips. This yielded 12 gallon bags full of sliced bananas to freeze for smoothies and banana bread.  That filled up a 16X8X11 inch space in my freezer. See proof of my labors below. Click on photos to enlarge and read captions. Forgottenman insisted you’d be interested in this. I had my reservations, but I usually comply with requests, so here is the proof of my day’s labors.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    You reminded me of the Harry Chapin song, “carrying [34] pounds of bananas.” Looks like a worthy endeavor you will be enjoying for awhile. So neat to be able to grow your own bananas.

    I’ve never nown anybody who grew their own bananas! These look wonderful, though a lot of work to slice them for freezing! I love the idea of freezing them for smoothies/breads/etc! Enjoy them!
