While I have been gone the last week, the bananas have continued to grow. It is amazing to see the change over a week’s time. I had been used to looking at them daily and could see a change. A week is incredible!
There are now over 15 hands in some stage of development. We will probably only keep the top 10 or so. I need to look and see what the recommendation is on cutting off the bottom ones. I am sure I have read somewhere that you should cut the ones off that are obviously not going to develop into usable bananas, but I have not taken the time to fully research that.
As you can see in the picture they are developing well compared to the last picture.
If you have any banana growing tips or tips on how to use a huge pile of bananas quickly, I would appreciate any response.

Just how tall is your banana tree? Is it a house tree or is it outside?
Hmm, maybe 10′ at the tallest. The part that hangs down with the bananas on it is probably only 6.5′. It is an outside plant growing in an empty lot we have beside our house.
