We are experiencing a few warm days up into the upper 60s which is encouraging Spring blooms early!
Our last killing frost is about mid-March so I am in planning stage for a spring vegetable garden!!!
The banana, after two winters of wrapping it in Christmas lights, has finally started to produce a bud! I noticed a “flag” leaf comming out a few weeks ago. The flag is a small leaf that comes right out on the flowering stem. It looks like flag or the shape of your hand. I can’t wait to see the stem and the blooms. The bananas are not very edible because they are full of seeds but I am sure they birds and animals will enjoy them. I may also try to germinate the seeds, too.
The much appreciated rain has created a very lush yard and garden. Cannas, bananas, and the vegetable garden are all very productive this season. The rain barrels that I have purchased from the city have save much, too
