Look at the bananas. "What?" you say. "Didn't Wicked tell us she removed these?" Well, unless you completely remove all of these roots, the buggers will come back. They look pretty now and I almost hate to hack them to death. But hack I will for two simple reasons:
1. More often than not, the bananas look like this: yuck.
2. They are busting through the raised beds. The bastards must go!
I have to admit that I didn't get to all of these plants today. I did remove the other bunch on opposite corner and replaced it with:
BIRD OF PARADISE!!!!!!!
