Bananas . . .

~ Monday June 27, 2011 ~ The larger bunch of bananas was finally ready to pick this week. So on Monday Jose told me it was time to cut them down. Here are some of the pictures from out cutting 'ceremony' . . .
The bananas are turning yellow and ready to pickMe holding the bunch of bananas while Jose cuts the thick stem

Jose the best farmer around! He had to use his machete to cut the bananas
This little guy and a couple of his friends made their home in the bananas.
The bananas that had turned yellow had the skins splitting . . .
This picture shows the size of the bananas. They are about 4 1/2 to 5 inches long - this is an envelope for a card to see the size.They are the best bananas I have ever eaten. Not quite as sweet as the longer bananas we get at home. They almost have a tint of an apple taste to them.
I will take pictures this weekend of the baby bananas.
