Pineapple Pizzazz

I grew an altitude-stunted pineapple! Perhaps I should rephrase that... I grew a tiny piney at nearly 6,000 feet in elevation!

In 2015, one of my bosses brought back pineapples from her family trip to Hawaii and shared them with our work group. Man, were they delicious!!! I asked if I could have one of the crowns to try to grow my own pineapple.

It took eight years!!! When I took photos of my final fruit to work to show my boss, she didn't even remember giving me the crown!

I don't know that I would ever repeat this little experiment at altitude. It was fun, the flowers - though tiny - were beautiful, and we had just enough pineapple to decorate one cheese pizza. It was sensational. There was a palpable sense of achievement.

I just don't know if it was worth eight years!!!
