Nanners is Here!


My latest addition, Nanners the dwarf Musa banana tree arrived in the mail from Hirt’s Gardens!  His pot is a bit big for him, but he’ll grow into it.  He should get about four feet tall and produce small edible bananas.  I wonder how long that will take!  If it’s anything like our fruit trees outside, it will be years!  We’ve lived here two years and the plum tree that was here at least two years before that just started producing this year.  It’s so hard to be patient, especially that patient!

Anyway, he seems to have made the trip and my de-soiling abuse just fine.  One leaf is a little bent from it being squashed against the inside of the box, but overall his leaves are very robust.
