Going Bananas in South Philadelphia

I wrote about my neighbor Bob’s urban garden last summer when the growing season was at its height and the plants were multiplying like crazy.  Now, however, it is autumn and  the frost is almost on the pumpkin metaphorically speaking.

The flowers in Bob’s garden are winding down the show.

Not as colorful as it was last July?

And yet,  there are bananas growing on a tree outside my South Philadelphia home.  Who would have imagined such a thing? And in late October!
