We don't usually have 5 banana peels ready to be tossed (or composted/used) at any given time, but we do acquire them. The freezer seemed like the perfect solution and this is what I came up with:
One day when I made banana bread, I had 3 peels to dispose of. At this time we have 5 roses to care for. You can see my concern, the first three would be ahead of the game, and if it was not kept track of, one of the first three would get a second treatment, and one of the leftover two, might miss out again. I know, not earth shaking, but things like that happen at my house, especially when we are busy with other things.
This is the solution,
Roll up the peels, place in freezer container and freeze. Next time you have another banana peel, add it to the container. When the container is full, treat the roses!
It is simple, using a spade, draw back some soil (about 2 inches deep) and drop in a frozen peel section. Replace the soil.
We had a full container and each rose got several "banana plugs" to help keep them beautiful.
Soon they will all be this pretty!
