Remember the pineapple top we planted in our yard in January 2012? Exactly a year after planting it, the plant (4 feet in diameter, 2 feet tall) got a red bud. Exactly 4 months and 1 week later, the pineapple is ripe!
That's right - harvest time! Here are the last of the pineapple pictures. To see all the others - click on the 'Cara's pineapple' label on the right and it will pull up all my pineapple posts.

Our family agreed - this was the sweetest juiciest pineapple we've ever eaten! Of course, after watching it grow for the past year and a half, we're not biased at all! Now we have another pineapple top to plant!
