Banana factoid:  If you peel a banana from the bottom up (holding on to the stem like a handle), you will avoid the stringy bits that cling to the fruit inside.

I agree with Bob - go ahead if the planting site is ready - they shouldn't need much if any water if your soil is like ours at the moment.  


If your soil is really sodden I'd leave them where they are until it's a bit drier.

5.4C in the back garden at the moment, a pale blue sky and still.

Did you know you can freeze brown bananas in their skins ... you don't even have to wrap them in clingfilm.  Then you can take them out and make banana cake when it's convenient, rather than feel you 'have to make it today' because there's brown bananas in the fruit bowl.

Also, are you a union member? If not it might be a good idea to join Unison - they can be very helpful with advice over employment contracts and just what can and can't be demanded of you.
