    Mmm, Good!

    Mmm, Good! - September 2011

    This year our pineapple patch only yielded one pineapple. I guess it's to be expected after the cold winter that we had. This year I made sure that I picked the pineapple before the birds got to it first. We ate it this week. It was very sweet and juicy. If you've never tried growing pineapples in Florida, you should consider it. It's quite simple. Just buy a pineapple at …Read More


    Mmmmm…pineapple! - August 2010

    Our first pineapple ripened in time for my birthday.  It was small but very tasty.  Homegrown pineapples are so much sweeter than store fruit. It's disappointing that the fruit isn't a little bigger this year, but I have a feeling that I'm lucky to have gotten fruit at all, given last winter's transplant and subsequent freezes.

    Pineapples are starting to ripen - August 2010

    My nine pineapples are still growing and they are starting to ripen.  The plants aren't as big this year as usual, probably due to the transplant last year as well as the extreme cold temperatures this winter. I can't wait to start eating!

    Nine Pineapples

    Nine Pineapples - July 2010

    This year we have a record-breaking nine pineapples growing in the pineapple patch!  We can't wait until they're ready to eat.  (Of course, when they are ready, I'm going to have to figure out where to plant nine new tops…)

    The pineapples are growing…

    The pineapples are growing… - June 2010

    We have nine pineapples growing in the side yard this year.  It's an impressive looking little pineapple patch!  I can't wait for the pineapples to mature.  Hopefully I get to eat them before the birds do.


    Mmm…pineapples! - May 2010

    We have eight pineapples growing in our little patch on the side of the house.  That's a record - we've only ever had four.  I'm surprised that they are even alive, much less growing fruit, after the cold this winter and the transplant I had to do with the termite treatment. :-p Carla and Peter also have a pineapple growing on their plants…their first! We're all looking forward to the …Read More

    My poor pineapples!

    My poor pineapples! - January 2010

    My poor pineapples! I had to move them so that the termite people could re-treat the perimeter of our house. With freezing weather for the last week, and the prospect of snow tomorrow, this was not the best week to have to dig up pineapples. :-p Then to add insult to injury, the guy didn't have to dig at all, so I could have left the plants in place! Why …Read More


    Pineapple - August 2009

    Our one pineapple of the season was ready today. It was good. :) Next year we ought to have a bunch…I'm running out of room in the pineapple patch.

    Pineapple patch

    Pineapple patch - July 2009

    The pineapple patch is flourishing. We have one pineapple in progress now, and hopefully next year we'll have four or five. Even the three plants that I had to transplant when they installed the new air conditioner are thriving.


    Pineapples - June 2009

    Our pineapple patch is doing pretty well. Our one pineapple is maturing, and the three plants that I had to transplant for the new air conditioner seem to have gotten their feet in the ground. Next year we'd better have more than just one pineapple!

    Baby pineapple

    Baby pineapple - March 2009

    It's another pineapple on the way! (and yes, Ron, this one gave us a pineapple last year too!)
