Going Bananas

Well it's certainly banana heaven here at the moment! We planted our banana plot over a year ago and as time went by and no fruit appeared we thought we had wasted our time. Then suddenly out of the blue we've had 3 beautiful bunches appear!  The first to ripen were the small sugar bananas and they were just delicious, there were about 100 bananas in that first bunch, way too many for us so our neighbours helped us out.


Now the Lady Fingers are just about ready. It is very satisfying  growing your own food and with some to share.  Now the cyclone season is over and the humidity has dropped  it is the ideal time to be out in the garden and the perfect time to grow vegies here in the tropics.

It's also great for sewing teds so here is my latest panda, a work in progress.

I hope you enjoy your weekend


  1. Oh! He is looking gorgeous!!! Can't wait to see the finished Bear!!!

  2. Я никогда не шила панд, но так захотелось.
    Я её сделаю в технике декупаж. Могу показать после окончания.

  3. Lovely panda and the bananas look very good.

  4. That looks like a great crop of bananas Robin. We've had a few bunches which have been delicious. We had so many that we dehydrated them - mmmmm... yum... dried banana is so delicious!

  5. Ohhhh I love bananas ... you lucky thing. It would be wonderful to have them fresh off the tree.

    Panda's coming along nicely too... handsome face, it has to be a boy!

    Warmest Hugs,
