Hey long lost buddies,
Looks like I fell off the face of the earth huh? Well I did have a birthday so I am busy slapping on the Oil Of Olay:P
Actually I am just busy being a mom, gardening at the school and at home, and carving for Christmas.
Today I was at my friend Cindy's house helping her decorate for her annual Halloween party this Friday. Matt will be Harry Potter and I was supposed to be Hermine, but Hope and Michael don't think I can pull it off with the blond hair. Cindy has saved the day with a hippie costume that she found at Goodwill, brand new I might add. (ya have to love Goodwill)
Michael is going to be Joe Dirt with his mullet wig and Hope a scary ghoul, with a mask that I don't think she will like wearing.
Now on a completely different topic.......
1~When you are buying a fresh pineapple look inside the top leaves for a healthy pretty green. Cut off the top of the pineapple leaving about an inch of fruit with skin still on.
2~ Let sit for one day (the fruit flies will thank you)
3~ plant in a pot with a nice loose soil. (I have a few planted in the ground here in SC, but will cover them if it gets cold)
4~ cover pineapple in pot with a plastic bag to give a humid environment.
5~Be patient, it may take months for it to take root. Give a gentle tug from time to time and if it feels as if it's firmly in the soil you may be in luck)
6~ don't be mad at me if it doesn't grow:)
*I have tried this about 8 or so times and have had 6 actually grow roots and flourish. I have yet to have a pineapple fruit but am crossing my fingers)
Now I must figure out supper and head back to Cindy's to help decorate in the dark and take Hope for her sleep over. (she's on fall break and gets to have fun this week)
Please let me now if you try growing a pineapple.
