Growing Bananas and Other Tropical Delights Beyond the Tropics
In yesterday’s video, I dive into zone-pushing bananas and other tropical edibles:
It’s truly amazing what can be done with a little ingenuity.
The experiments I did for years before releasing Push the Zone really opened my eyes to the zone-pushing possibilities. I grew things that other people said were “impossible” to grow in my climate.
A master gardener walked past a group of papayas behind my house once. They were loaded with fruit. Then she literally said:
“Ah, papayas. Too bad you can grow them here!”
And she meant it. The fruit were ripening on the trees and they were very much alive. Yet the official story is “nope – you can’ grow those!”
I laughed over that and I’m still laughing over it.
