The Pineapple, a slow-growing fruit which, if you get it right can be a delight… but if you cut it up a little too early and decide to eat it anyway, the acidic juice can make your mouth itch for hours.
I decided to give it a shot. Grow some pineapples to see if they’ll grow in the backyard. I followed instructions on the internet and cut off the top a.k.a. as sucker and placed it in water for a day then put it in soil. It worked.
But no one told me they were susceptible to frost burn. 😦
Fortunately, they survived and new growth appeared while the “old leaves” kind of stagnated.
So now with 9 Pineapples as subtle indicators of our property’s border, I guess I just have to be patient.
