Our Yard is Full of Baby Fruit

Post  Cajun Cappy on 4/21/2016, 12:00 pm

While playing in the yard yesterday I walked around taking pictures of all our spring time babies.  It's fun to see the promise of spring babies.  Here are the pictures:

Sanderson I guess I owe you guys an apology I didn't remember to keep yall posted on the banana progress last year.  They grew for a while and then broke in a storm we picked them up and hung them on the patio to ripen we got 22 naners that were not near as good as usual cause they were picked early and not ripened on the palm.  We made muffins outa them and they were good.  Peggy makes a great muffin outa what ever is ripening at the time this weeks batch is mostly plum with some nuts and stuff and very delicous.

Which sprouts?  The baby asparaguys?  We researched which ones would grow way down in the steamy south then ordered them on line and got some 3 year old roots.  Stuck them in a 4x4 box that once was an herb garden and moved the herbs to a 4x6 they took off and made the first year.  Now we have baby first year roots and big ole fat ones from the old roots.  Only thing we really considered is they need lots of sun.  When the morning dew hits the ferns they are beautiful.  If we ever build another box it will be for asparagus.  it will be long and only 2 ft wide for ease of weeding and picking.  Who knows what the 15 year old 4x4 box will be next.

This is what they look like full speed.

You can see why a 2 ft would be easier to get into them better.

Do you remember the name of the variety you ordered and where you ordered them from.

Sadly we do not remember its been 10 years or more.  We will look back and try to see if we can find it but we searched LSU ag for recommended varieties for deep south and got a list of 3 or 4 then went to We think it was Gurneys and ordered them.

I will check with Peg and see if we have it posted anywhere Sanderson.  It is so much fun in the fall looking at the pecan tree and ripening bunches of our plantains knowing that they are peggys bread on the hoof Very Happy.

hammock gal I think its part of Gods wonderful plan that different regions grow different things as it created a need to trade and inter sperce.  One of the miracles of life is that we sit down here in the shade of citrus trees and are jealous of you apple growers.
