Gardening Geek Alert!

I confess. I am a geek - especially about gardening (although my bet is that you already knew that). I think maybe I'm really a farmer trapped in a suburbanite's life. Anyway, while surfing for more information on growing berries and fruit, I stumbled upon this website about how to grow PINEAPPLES at home!! I am so trying this.

The picture to the left is a pineapple grown from the cut off top of another pineapple, bought from a grocery store or market. Patience is required since it can take up to 3 years for it to fruit. Still, its a free plant since I usually throw out the tops. Besides, it ought to be fun to see what happens :o)
