A few months ago, in the far corner of our backyard, we discovered a pineapple growing. Yes, a pineapple. We watched and waited, but it never seemed to get much bigger. Finally, it just fell over from the weight of itself against the plant's leaves that couldn't support it.
So there really ARE some very good things about living in Florida--where else would we be able to grow a real pineapple in our very own backyard? And by the way, it tasted Oh So Good!
