We Have A Pineapple!
We planted a pineapple in September 2008. The internet reference we read stated that it takes about two years to grow a pineapple, so we were well on our way this past winter when it got so cold. The pineapple plant was huge, so I covered it and hoped for the best. After a week covered with sheets, the plant looked a little (a lot, actually) worse for wear. A couple of weeks later it looked like a total loss. I cut off the dead parts of the leaves and we watched and waited. Just as we were about to give up on it, we saw a tiny little pineapple! Maybe by Christmas this year we will have ourselves a pineapple!
