Last week, we thought it must be getting close to when we should contemplate harvesting the bananas.
On Saturday, we noticed it was about time to harvest the bananas.
On Sunday, we googled how to harvest the bananas.
On Monday - there was sunshine. There was a pruning saw and much activity. There was sticky, sticky sap, hungry, hungry ants and fat, over-fat bananas.
All those too ripe, we left as fertiliser.
All those ripe but split, we processed and put into the freezer.
All those ripe but not split, we put in the fruit bowl and gave to the neighbours.
All those not quite ripe we have put into reserve and are distributing to workmates, childcare and friends.
At a price of $11.95 kg currently, we have worked out we are incredibly banana rich.
And do you know what?
Personally, I hate bananas.
