Happy St. Patrick’s Day! My nod to this day o’ green is via my garden…
After a dismal showing last year, our pineapple garden is in full swing for this coming summer!
Did you know that pineapples are a member of the bromeliad family and today they are the only available edible bromeliad? The pineapple is also a multiple fruit. One pineapple is made of individual florets that grow together to form the fruit – each scale is the remnant of an individual flower. And, when European explorers first encountered the fruit in the Americas, they called them “pineapples” because of the resemblance to pine cones.
I can’t wait!
Any suggestions for this bunch?
