Bananas total loss

With the freezing temperatures we had over a long period in January and even the unseasonably cold temperatures currently, the three bearing bananas have all but withered and died.

All three were well on their way bearing nicely sized bunches of fruit and all three were killed by the cold temps and all the fruit stopped developing and just shrivelled away.

All I can say is that I feel extremely sorry for farmers all over the sunshine state.

This must have been one of the worst years they've ever had. For me its only a hobby, for these folks their lively hood depends on it.

Its showing on the prices of fresh produce, my wife commented how ridiculous the prices are for especially salad greens.
