banana maintenance

This morning we worked trimming our banana grove. Banana leaves make great compost for banana trees, so we cut all the dry stuff and placed it around the trunks. We cut down trees that had already finished fruiting, since  once they’ve fruited that stalk dies and makes great compost.

We also did some work on the nearby papaya trees, trimming and composting around them as well.

We’re big fans of the film Avatar here, which we found both entertaining and meaningful in its environmental message. The design was pretty cool too. We noticed this drying banana leaf today, which reminded us of some of the wildlife in in the film.
