Sweet hut and design. I loved the Mystery Tiki story. He's in a good home now.

Excellent work! I've been trying to see the site for 4 days and it was worth the wait. Very nice job indeed!
I really like how your bananas are doing. I just planted my first this spring and can not believe how large he has gotten in just a few months. The hard part will be when I have to dig him up in the fall to bring him back indoors. Hope it works out OK.
Again, very nice handy work!

Heres a few pics of the new bridge I bought for my backyard.
I had been considering buying one for over a year and finally did it. All and all I'm pretty happy with it.

Nice job! From first hand experience with bannas - fruiting will kill the stem, and the fruit really doesn't taste that good. We keep cutting the pods off before they open to keep the stem alive - folige more important than bad bannas

Um...well...I hate to disagree but, a couple of things, first most banana plants grow cooking bananas not eating bananas, slice a home grown banana length wise and fry it in a little butter and brown sugar and I promise you will never cut off a bud again, second the fruiting signals the plant to send up "babies" You will get 4-10 new plants when the one stalk dies. Oh yeah, when the bananas are all out and you can see that there will be no more, then cut off the end at the flower, it makes an incredible soup, then when the bananas are all formed but not yet yellow, cut off the bunch, loose wrap with newspaper and put them in a dark place for a few days. Be sure to keep and eye on them, they ripen fast. I have about 4 to 5 plants at any given time in fruit, I also like to cook pork in the ground, banana stalks are what I use to line the pit as Ti plants are rare here and seaweed is a myth. I would hate to cut down a good plant to use but a flowering stalk is a prime target.

This could be the end of the line for my Backyard.

The wife and I have decided to move, so the hut will be coming down soon. I'll be taking out the ponds, and some of the trees and plants.

I made it real clear to the realitor that it was coming all down and to make sure the new people realized this.

The new place we are bidding on is a newer house that has a slightly bigger yard, and the reminents of a pond and Lava rock waterfall. While it depressing to think about tearing down the hut, it exciting to think about recreating it with a blank slate. The elements are much friendlier in the new yard than mine was originally.

So anyone who hasn't seen the site, here it is:

Anyone who is nearby that wants to see it in person better contact me quick

Big Sigh of sadness. Will you continue to tikify your new digs (providing there is space)?

This was a very nice place to behold.

So I didn't move and the hut and the backyard is still intact, and better than ever.

The lawn equipment was banished back to the garage and the inside of the hut it all decorated inside. I put up tons of shelves and filled them with shells, tikis, nautical stuff, etc. It look like a real Trading Post now.

Put up new thatching, and added a new section of beem cardved by b-one tiki.

For fathers day I received one of those big bamboo chairs from big lots. I rigged the hut with electricity and enjoy sitting in there at night, smoking cigars and watching adventure movies, indiana jones, ramar of the jungle and pirate documentaries.

Some really cool pics will be surfacing soon of the backyard.

Erich
