Sun-dried bananas last for over a year and I got some cut ready to be spread in the balcony for drying.
There’s a problem though, birds come visiting. Not that I am bird hater or something like that; just that what is due to Ceaser is Ceaser’s.
I remembered the old trick of warding off pigeons. By the way pigeons are calm, nice, soft etc. but number one in using your space as toilet.
The technique is to hang CD discs on a thread. The shine in sunlight and the swing in wind would keep the birds on neighbors balcony, temporarily.
They will come back to sing for you once the banana is dried.
