We used to plant flowers on our compound not knowing that the same space can be utilized to plant some food for the family. We now have 15 banana plants on our compound and each plant is able to provide us with 5 bunches a year. With 15 plants, we are able to harvest 75 bunches of banana a year. Each bunch serves our family for 3 days and 75 bunches  serves us a total of 225 days.
