Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day to all the gardeners in the US; I hope you all take the time off and enjoy your gardens. I am planning a cook out in my garden with family and friends (weather permitting). To all gardeners outside the US, why don’t you join us? We’ll do the same on May 1st.
There hasn’t been much gardening at the DragonFly this weekend; the weather has been awful. It has rained on and off for the last couple of days. The two storms near our vicinity are partly to blame. Hanna is hanging around off the east coast of Florida not knowing where to go next, and Gustav is passing by to our southwest.
I hope and pray that Gustav does not become another Katrina and that the people of the Gulf Coast and New Orleans are spared the furry of this hurricane.

Update on my banana tree- today I took the advise of a neighbor and cut off the bottom of the banana stock. This should leave all the energy the plant has left for the growth of the bananas. As you can see in the pictures the other two banana trees are growing very nicely.

Wow you have big bananas. My plant had bananas only one time and they were small and tasted more like banana ice cream than bananas straight up. OK by me!

They are big! Mine always freeze before they ripen.
