Our Pineapples have "spiked "
15 months ago Mrs. Kollers 4th grade class from Temple Beth Am planted 16 Pineapple plants in our Garden area. This week I noticed that 2 of the plants have "spiked", I use the term "spiked' because a Pineapple is a Bromeliad, and a Bromeliad begins to produce a flower when is senses winter is over and spring is beginning. The flowers located in the center of the plant will produce approximately a 3 lb fruit in early June. I must say I was very excited to share the news with our members, I marked the 2 flowering plants with pink ribbons for easy Identification. So next time you pass by our garden check on the progress .
