Pineapple update

Have you been waiting for updated pineapple plant pictures? Am I the only one completely fascinated with this pineapple plant growth? It can't be... it just can't be!

Joking aside, we planted the top of a Maui Gold pineapple (from Costco) in our flower bed in January 2012. It was an experiment, to see if we could really do it. Here's what it looked like in February 2012 with some new growth in the center.

A year later (end of January) it developed a red bud. And yes, I've been checking on it every day since... you can't take the farm out of the farm girl, it would appear.

Here's what it looks like today! I love how the leaves around the bud have turned a beautiful pink!

The plant is now 2 feet tall and four feet in diameter.
