It's Not Easy Being GreenA non real estate-related mini-rant for today.There's much that I can buy from Costco but bananas are not one. In the middle of last summer's heat wave, I bought a giant bunch. I placed them on the counter and waited for them to ripen.And I waited, and I waited...I put them out in the sun. I put them in a brown paper bag. I mixed them with other fruit to get the benefit of their gas emissions. Nothing. After a solid two weeks, I was just about to throw them away, when I saw the barest hint of yellow. I salvaged that bunch but I know it was only because it was hot and humid at the time. Had it been winter, they would have gone into the garbage.I get that bananas come from faraway, tropical climates and Long Island surely doesn't have the perfect growing condition...
