While on vacation, if you call it that, I had to spend a few days in Coral Springs to take care of our house. Had to assess some things, check on things, and do all the work that doesn't get done. My gardener does the yard but he doesn't clean up my banana mats or trim my vines, or clean up my plants that spread like wildfires. I spent an entire day just working on the yard. When all was said and done I probably took 6-8 dead banana plants to the curb along with hundreds of dead leaves. I should have taken a picture of all the stuff I took to the curb.
Standing in front of my Jackfruit tree. When Natalie bought this for my birthday a couple years ago it was just a little stick about 2 feet tall.
My Valencia Pride Mango tree. Got this two years ago and it was only three feet tall and really skinny. Now it's about 12 feet tall and should be full of mangoes by next year.
On Sunday, before I got to work.
Our bamboo. I bought this for Natalie for Christmas 2011. They were just sticks then. Now they are 16-18 feet and should be 45 by the end of this year.
