    Okay, here is the beginnings of my second ever yellow Chinese banana plant bloom - it will take it over a month to fully develop - the plant itself is just now beginning to put out leaves (they put out massive amounts of leaves). They die after they bloom like agaves. It is not a real banana tree. Yes, eh - hem, these are very difficult to grow and only true masters have ever reported having one bloom under their care. haha. If I can grow one...you know it must be one of those "stick it in the ground and forget it" things. They have amazing blooms - they are huge (wouldn't fit in a small coffee can). I will post another pic when it finally fully hatches out. I imagine they would grow like crazy at your place, fly.

    And here is my little friend. I talk to him often...the deal is - he eats ants and I guarantee his water supply.

    Look forward to seeing them in bloom Missy and your little friend is pretty cute too.

    Sad news here, my heirloom Bartlett trees have fire blight. They are very old trees that came from my great grandparents homestead so I'm going to try and save them. If they weren't, I think I would start over. So bummed.

    Missy those are awesome!!! Can't wait for that to bloom!
    Must get some for me and my Papa, he collects exotics and would love that!!!

    M that's terrible, I'll say a prayer for them. With the drought(s) seems like everything is struggling this year.
    Hands clasped that they pull through!

    I'll have pictures up soon. During the last three weeks of insanity my cauliflower decided to EXPLODE. I have we'll over 100 lbs to freeze. I needed a break, but with the way things look around here I won't get a lick of rest!

    Hope everything is sproutin and bloomin purdy for y'all!!!

    What is this stuff! I'm going to post three pictures of it, this is my garden nemesis it grows all around the workshop and mulch dies t seem to slow it down! Ya can't pull it out of the ground effectively because it breaks off and spraying it is a PITA because there's hardly anything to spray! You wouldn't know I drenched it in round up three days ago.....grrrr! I'm in Alberta if that helps! I've seen 'mares broom' or 'mares tail' before and this stuff is very simar expect it looks narrower.....hate this stuff!
