Bananas $10/kg

I commented on this in Flashducks blog, but I thought I'd expand on my comments. I love bananas. You don't realise what you've got until it's gone. I used to eat at least one banana per day before Larry. Now I rarely eat them because they are just too expensive. It's going to be a long while before they are back too, but I really hope they don't allow imported bananas - it'd just kill the local producers. Over at mum and dad's place yesterday, I spotted an overripe one sitting in their fruit bowl, so I pinched it. Oh, the delightful creamy texture, sweet taste and pungent aroma of the banana - how I miss you!
Now what are the symptoms of potassium deficiency?

Doing a 15 minute run later today. My calf is still a bit sore, so we'll see how the run goes.

LOL- Dave I paid $2 for one banana last week : o I didn't even realise until I had passed through the check out. Highway robbery if you ask me.

I love bananas too : (

I have had a banana with my breakfast almost every day since 1962 - no more!
What are the symptoms of potassium saturation?

Lady Fingers just $8.99 at my local fruit and vege shop. Cavendish are $9.99. I like watching people stopping and staring at them lovingly :-)
