My banana P stem with the bananas was blow down by a storm earlier than Sally.

but I am on to something else. Honey locust.

They have pods a full of sweet substance from whence comes the name honey locust. the down side is that the the wild tree type is full of thorns. i at the moment just potted a lot of seedlings that are from trees that have a reduced amount of thorns.
Wild type thorns will flatten tractor tires.

Banana trees scare me.......When I was in middle school at Kadena AB, Okinawa (77-80), a typhoon mangled the one in our back yard. My dad instructed me to haul it to the boonies, no problem at first. When I started pulling it the rest of the way out of the ground, there in the root slaw was a WWII American grenade.

Told my dad, he comes out, looks, calls EOD, they determine it can't be moved and destroyed it in place. I can't tell you how many times my little brother and I played in and around that tree and digging around the roots. I quit digging holes for the rest of our Okinawa tour.

Thank God, dad had taught me lesson and I didn't pick it up. A year or so earlier I was snorkeling and drug a Naval Shell up on the beach, that caused the beach to be shut down and EOD called out to deal with it. I couldn't sit for a week or so after that stunt.

He learnt me not to touch things that go booooooom.

B&C Nursery had some last weekend. Pensacola Seed & Garden is usually pretty good also, as is Floral Tree Gardens.

Still looking for satsuma trees and a lime tree
Lots of satsuma around for sale. Lime trees are usually not good choice here in milton or pace due the cold Might work better in gulf breeze if you are on the beach or island.
There are some hard to find cold resistant limes.
Here is good lime for our climate
Red Lime Tree – Citrus x aurantiifolia
Super cold hardy lime – even better than Rangpur! The Red Lime is a small, compact tree that produces beautiful orange skinned fruit with reddish orange flesh much like Key Limes in size and flavor. Very juicy and not too tart. This rare find is thought to be a cross between Rangpur and a kumquat. Ripens from November to January.
Red Lime Tree
$69.99

Reminds me of a time on Adak AK where I was driving on the seawall side of Lake Andy (Andrew Lake now), on the west side by the outlet, and spotted some green covered wire. I stopped and pulled on the wire gently, and immediately stopped when I came to a green handle with a red button that was labeled MK something.

I laid it down, tied a bandana to a patch of grass near by, went home and reported it. EOD recovered it and the ordinance attached for disposal. Turned out a LOT of ordinance was removed from the island in that area after WWII!

Talking about parsley. My friend has a very large grapefruit tree that has the best and juiciest ruby red fruit no matter how cold it gets in Pensacola. Thin rinds too. However, I'm bias, I really like grapefruit. Helps with regularity but that's another topic. I wish that tree was in my yard. Grapefruit (citrus) are probably easier to grow this far north. Easier than bananas.

Looking good man . We lost most of our trees during Ivan so I planted all citrus , fruit and Bananas that came from my dad's house here in Pensacola . I hate when they start late and never produce since they take 90 days to get ripe
these are from last year ,

A vietnamese friend of mine said that when a stalk of bananas start, cut off what's below it including the purple blossom. This will then feed the bananas more energy to grow and develop. Just a thought! Those are fine bunches!!!!
