Second Banana Spear

banana hands

Today we harvested the 2nd banana spear. It held 5 nice hands weighing 4.4kilos in total. At todays prices, that’s about $50 worth of bananas!

No more spears on any of the plants so this looks like the end of this year’s harvest. We’ll be eating these bananas for about the next month (the first hand is already in its plastic bag with an apple) and then we have about 10 months to wait for next year’s bounty 😦
