    83E9AA9C-B934-4E3C-9BBF-D2C2FFC671B9.jpeg Another banana garden planted; 15 plants, six varieties. I’m hoping I can find the time to plant a few hundred maize plants between the bananas.

    Are these the shoots you've talked about?

    I'm guessing by maize you mean a type of corn and it does well in the wet soil there.

    Hopefully the soil won’t be too wet. We’re almost at the end of the rainy season here. The soil should dry out completely in the next month or so.

    Yes maize, Zea mays. Corn if you will.

    One thing is for certain, you don't stop. You have one more thing in the works on a regular basis.

    The problem is my wife insists I do everything now. No rest or reflection allowed.

    I'm not going to touch that but will ask, is this pregnancy related?

    That’ll be her excuse for now. Once the sprog is born I’ll have other challenges.

    Spotted this on my morning walk - our first pineapple. My wife planted several pineapple tops over two years ago and this is the first one to start fruiting. Hopefully we can get some slips and pups from the plant so the next crop doesn’t take so long.

    Who knew they were so pretty? I sure didn't but then I also didn't know that's the way pineapples grew.
