I just had to post this today, sorry for two post in one day....maybe some of you are asleep and this will be your post tomorrow.
If some of you had been following my personal blog (which is no more) you would already know about my pineapple plantation...yes...plantation.
When we first got here I started planting the heads of my pineapples by the house. About 9 months later the yard man got tired of them by the house and took a few of them (not all) down to the side of the hill. So....when I would buy a pineapple, I would offer the heads to the seller and if they didn't want them, I would bring them home and plant them by the side of the hill.
To my surprise the yard man had a few holes already dug for me. I had about 11 plants...I think I am down to about 7 now, have gone through several yard men.
So...today, I told my husband that I was going to go and check out my pineapples and guess what!!!!
I HAVE PINEAPPLES!!!! I have two....the other ones are not producing yet. Of course, I leave in two days and will not be able to eat the fruit of my labor (and the yard man (men), he weeded it....how easy is that)?
So let me introduce you to my two pineapples.....
aren't they something? Sure takes a long time for them to produce...but how exciting when they do.
