Our urban lot is about 40′ x 100′ – approximately 1/10 acre. It drops down into a little canyon in the back. Over the last few years I’ve been doing quite a bit of work back there. Last fall I leveled out a little area for a banana grove along the back property line and amended the soil. This spring I moved these little pups to their new home. They seem quite happy there.
Bananas require lots of water. I made a pretty simple low-pressure, gravity fed system using pvc pipe. I used a hack-saw to notch the pipe near each plant, then capped off one end and connected the other end to the rain-barrel with a hose. So far they’ve been irrigated with rain water only.
