The Thuds are Back With a Vengeance… Going Bananas

Last year I blogged about those effing thuds that were driving me crazy.

Well it looks like they are back with a vengeance.  I don’t know when this started happening, but all these little baby avocados are now dropping from the tree.

Here’s a picture of some of them.  I added the water bottle into the picture so that you can see how small they are.

It wouldn’t be so bad if the tree was at least on our property and we could do something about it.   The dang tree is so big now that it does over hang our house.

I guess the price of living in paradise is getting free avacado’s at the risk of getting knocked out by one at the same time.

On an even more sad note.  Right across the fence line from my place and just out of reach… is a bunch of bananas getting ready to whack.

This is actually on the School Grounds in the back of the school so I have to wonder if they are watching these.  I sure hope so, I’d hate for them to go to waste.

Before I moved to Hawaii, I only thought of Bananas as the standard type that you find in the store.  I didn’t know that their were a lot of different types of bananas.

Right now we have these cooking bananas hanging so they will get a little riper.  This isn’t the type of banana you just peel and eat.  You do need to cook it in order for it to be good enough to eat in my opinion.

We have 10 acres about 3-4 miles from where we live that has LOTS of Bananas.  I tend to “Go Bananas” at times because they are around so much.  The good thing about it… is you can dehydrate them, and that’s what my wife likes to do with them.

I couldn’t believe it when I was at Maku’u Farmers Market and they were selling bags of dried banana’s for $10.00 bucks a bag.

My son can eat these night and day and they are good for him!

Lucky we live in Paradise.

You know how much they pay for one Banana at some places on the mainland?  I don’t know… but I’m gonna find out soon enough.

  1. Two bunches of apple bananas about ready to cut in the next week! Never thought I would be growing bananas in the back yard!

    • I never knew there were so many different types of bananas until I moved here. I mean they all taste the same in a “Split”!
