More on food, again. This time I’ve been pondering bananas. It’s been months since I’ve had one. And oh how I miss them. But good old Cyclone Larry wiped out 80 percent of Australia’s banana crop in March, and we don’t go importing bananas, as they may be diseased. Meanwhile, the bananas that are around are costing more than 500 percent more than they used to. Meaning prices up around $12-$15/kilogram, rather than $2-$3/kilogram. So these days, a banana can cost you three dollars. They’re only for the rich people. Something or other is on the horizon though, apparently bananas are going to start reappearing in mid-September, and banana availability and prices will be back to normal by December-January. I think I might hold a party.
