“Please don’t bury my bananas” is the collective prayer of the planters on La Palma where the Cumbre Vieja volcano is still spewing molten lava that devours houses, schools and banana fields as it plows its sinister way down to the Atlantic. It isn’t just that the lava buries everything that gets in its way. The ashes not only settle on the fruit but on whole plants and kill them off. Who can foretell what measly number of bananas would be harvested now, in view of the eruption? And to think that over 10,000 of the island’s 85,000 population depend on banana employment!
