Pineapple Progress

Pineapples0907_2

Believe it or not, these are my sad little pineapple experiments that inspired my blog name. They've actually done quite well since I potted them just a few months ago. My biggest failure was leaving them to root for about 9 months longer than they needed, for no good reason. The back plant still has a few of it's original leaves (they are supposed to fall off in place of the new growth in the center). Just think, about 24 months from now (if I'm lucky) I'll have a home-grown NH pineapple sibling to my honeymoon fruit. I just hope they continue to do well once I bring them inside for winter.
