Pineapple Progress

Three in this pot




They hit the dirt about two weeks ago.







Two here--a tiny one at 12 o'clock













Their tiny root feet have been wiggling their toes in soil for that long.  And even though the "strides" are proportionately small, the baby pineapples are making progress.








The biggest one of the bunch at a whopping 1/4" tall.







As a faithful gardener the Things I get to do today will certainly be to chuck all seven of them under their little chins and say, "Good job, little planties!"

Had a quick visit with the Pineapple Devas--they are tickled pink over this experiment.

    2. Well, Tweedles, they started out on a paper towel. They feel SO much better being in the dirt--home at last.
