They were! :-D

I looked for the picture of the bunch of bananas but apparently didn't post it, so will try to get around to that in the next few days. From memory, it weighed 18kg and had 139 bananas on it. None of the subsequent bunches have been as big.

Your pineapples must have been very sweet and juicy!

blueeyedblond

Well, you've already seen the pineapples!
I think a much earlier post was of one of our bunches of bananas. We started off four years ago with two banana trees. We now have 46 on latest count, in two varieties.
I'm about to post one, taken a few days ago, of some delightful gazanias in the garden I mentioned below. The trellis at the back of that garden (not shown) is currently supporting several vigorous young snow pea plants.
We're still a long way from self-sufficiency in food production, but that is the eventual aim.

jbprols

Wow! That is quite a lot of work, especially if you have really hard, rocky dirt. You must have a beautiful garden, Adrian. Have you posted any puzzles of your plants?

blueeyedblond

Aah! Yes, underground watering is the most efficient way to do it.
At the expense of great personal effort, I dug out a 2.4 metre by 3 metre garden bed to a depth of nearly a foot, laid a charcoal base, then sand, then built my own underground watering system out of rigid plastic electrical conduit into which I had drilled more than 100 carefully angled holes, then re-filled the bed with alternate layers of sand, soil, compost, slow release fertiliser, more soil, sand, compost, etc. Then planted. I tested the system and decided that running water into it for four minutes twice a week was optimal. That was more than two years ago.
But, we've had so much rain for for the past few months that I haven't added water to the system for about four months! All that effort...

We have an underground watering system the delivers water to the flowering plants and succulents twice a day, here in Arizona.

So, your lantana and spiky plant are thriving in desert sunshine with little or no water?
That figures.

Sonoran Desert - in which state?

This is so pretty Bernadette, you must be thrilled with it. 😀

jbprols

Yes it is, we love it. Here in our neighbor, we all have artificial grass to save on water and maintenance in the desert conditions. We are in the Sonoran Desert.

Love the changing blooms :O))

...and now that I've solved the puzzle, I'm IMPRESSED by the setting. Is that the front path and lawn of your home?

Thank you, Sandy!

Oh, I did not know that...we won't let it get out of control...ha ha!

Your lantana bush is very decorative indeed. It was once popular in Australia as a hedge, eg., instead of a front fence. But then it escaped into bushland and became an extremely difficult to eradicate noxious weed. Worse, it burns well in a bushfire... and then is one of the first plants to re-establish after the fire has destroyed almost everything else. Understandably, it is no longer as popular down here as it used to be.

Beautiful!
