Thought I would give a big September update since we are nearing the end of the growing season. This update will feature before and after pictures to show the growth throughout the season. After the before and after pictures will be some miscellaneous pictures.

Figured I would post pics now as we're expecting strong winds tomorrow with a cold front. If bananas get shredded at least I took pics! Hopefully I can get final pics in early October before frosts (and things don't get shredded tomorrow!) :)

Thanks for looking!

Really beautiful! Your banana plants grew SOOO much! Your windmill palms are looking fantastic too! Looks like a great end to a great growing season and your plants do still have some more of the growing season left to enjoy and they will probably get even larger before the first frost.
Good luck!

Thanks for the comments! I didn't really notice that the windmill palm's trunk fattened up. After you guys mentioned it, I took another look and sure enough it did! Awesome!

Very nice! Your basjoos and other naners seem to stay fairly compact up there. Im used to seeing those around here at usually 15-20 feet tall or higher. I guess the shorter growing season really does make a difference for you. Still looks great!
