Highgate Hill, West End

Are you Bananas?

West End's backyards are full of fruit and vegies

West End's backyards are full of fruit and vegies

These Banana trees stood out as we were doing our rounds of West End again this week. I think it was the nostalgia that hit me … I do remember Dad with the machete, cutting down a bunch of lady fingers in our backyard when I was a kid.  Thanks to my friend, Simon, who lives in Highgate Hill, I have 2 types of passionfruit in my yard which fruit at different times of the year…but no Bananas.  The Davies Park fruit and vegies are good… but there’s nothing quite like growing your own.
