Banana Butchery (Musa basjoo)
Well it was still to tall and didn't fit in the car. So I got out the knife and chopped the top off. As the tip bled in front of me I could hear the painful screams of thousands of souls. That may be a little dramatic but cutting off the top of one of my more prized plants was a bit difficult. Cutting them down is very common for shipping and many times they are cut down just above the roots. It couldn't go sideways or at and angle because it might get bruised and there is still a lot more to place in the car!
