I just returned from a week long trip only to discover that my Burro(chunky banana) plant has opened up and has about 5 hands of bananas exposed with more to be uncovered. The bees are diving in and enjoying the banana nectar. This planting also produced in mid November last year. I babied the bunches through the cold weather and was rewarded with some nice fat bananas in the spring.
I am overwhelmed this year as I have dozens of bananas frozen for banana bread, smoothies and maybe some more banana jam.
I wonder if the bees from my nearby neighborhood hives are part of the crew supping upon the sweet nectar?
