This week we managed to cut down just two of the 6 bunches of bananas growing in our garden, i have been looking at them for years till someone said that you can eat them! After a bit of googling i realised that if they are left they rot and just fall off (that's if the possums haven't had a good go first!) so we cut them down whilst still green and let them ripen. They all seemed to ripen at the same time hence the HUGE bowl you can see, not the prettiest bananas you have ever seen but they are so little and very sweet, perfect for small people, who in my life are just that!

Next was what to do with all these bananas? After the little people started knocking them back i made a big batch of banana muffins and mashed the rest and freezed a few zip lock bags full for future banana goodies!

Just waiting for the next bunch to ripen! this may not seem like a phenomenon to some but this city girl who cant even grow mint is pretty excited to be eating totally organic bananas that i (sort of) grew!!....well no i didn't grow at all but they are in my garden so I might as well take the credit... a bit!
