Homegrown pineapples

9 Jan


“Growing your own pineapples is patience in practice.

The result is a very rewarding treat.

See this example as a metaphor for many things in life.”

Maria Prema

 

Presently we have three pineapples growing. From the time you cut the top and put it in a pot or directly in the ground is takes about 2 – 3 years for the beautiful red pineapple flower to emerge. Then close to six months until the fruit is ripe, yellow and sweet. You can not rush it!!
Pineapples are part of the Bromeliad family.

 

Mother Nature gifted me with a pineapple for my birthday, 31.1.16.
