It won't be ready to eat for a couple more months or so, but this young pineapple is well on its way to maturity. Like a kid in a kindergarten classroom, I'm still awed and excited to watch the transformation of a sliced off pineapple top planted in the ground yield a new edible fruit! Though it seems like it takes forever, it is always fun to harvest!

The process of maturity can be painful's experiences run the gamut of extremes. Of course, as they say, the alternative to maturity is not great, either! Melbourne, FL


  1. Wow - really cool image! I only see pineapples in the grocery store!

  2. Nice photo - we have to be patient as we nurture growth.
