In October 2010 I purchased a pineapple plant sold at a plant sale for the UCF Arboretum at the University of Central Florida.

For over two years I have managed to not kill off this plant (unlike past pineapple plant attempts, which I thought I blogged about but apparently never did).

But the plant just sat there in the yard and did nothing.

When we returned back from our lovely two week trip in the United Kingdom (more details later) I was excited to find that the pineapple plant was actually producing, well, a pineapple.


The more I garden, the more I am finding that plants do better when I leave them alone. Survival of the fittest backyard garden style.
