You haven't seen my plants in a while. I figured it was time. Did I mention I have banana trees before? Well I do and there are bananas on one of them! Which I remembered which variety it was!

Here is a 'group' shot. We have 4 varieties of banana trees. One bunch of trees is the 'praying hands ' and the other set is the 'ice cream bananas'.

And remember those 3 pineapple plants? How's this:

The biggest one is leaning. Not sure if we'll get to eat it before it falls over or not.

More pictures of the kids later in the week. GRIN.

all you need is a chocolate tree and you have everything you need.....

Does the new "digs" have fruit trees?

Cool! There's nothing like harvesting fruit off your own land... Now you need veggies... ;)

The only fruit trees I'll have on the new place are the ones I plant. Sorta like the ones we have at this place.

I use to plant veggies... between the rabbits and the squirrels and the kids, there was never any left for harvest. ;-)

So coooooool! We can't grow that stuff in NY. Mmm. fresh pineapple!

I went to our local farm shop to buy some fresh stuff. They had pineapples there, but I have reason to believe they were not grown on the farm, along with the coconut I bought :-S

Nice. I'm jealous.

Unfortunately our bananna tree seems to be dying out, and our pineapple was trashed by the dog who seemed to think it was something to munch on. Then again that bananna tree has been through close to 50 typhoons and one house move, so I am amazed it is still around at all.

Luckily our Acerola tree seems to be doing well. We have about 100 watermelon sprouts(who knew they's ALL come up!).
