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!
