Remember when I purchased a couple banana trees because I'm gullible?
They came about a week ago. I'm not sure what I expected, but them were two tiny bulbs with a little sprout out of the top of them.
I found two green pots in the garage, and transplanted these babies into some miracle grow soil.
After about a week, they looked like this:
I didn't give up on them, though! I kept watering them, and made sure they weren't in any kind of cold draft. After we got home from the hospital on Tuesday night, I peeked at them. They had budded!
I'm still not expecting hundreds of bushels of bananas any time soon, but this is encouraging! I shall continue watering and babying these little guys, and we'll see what happens!
