2 years ago i took the top from a yummy organic pineapple to my green-thumbed friend K.R. who stuck it in a pot. i remember when i was a kid in florida, my mom used to stick them out in the dirt and sometimes they'd grow into pineapple plants. i don't remember them ever having pineapples on them, but K.R.'s, 2 years later, here in her house in vemont, now has a baby pineapple getting bigger by the day!
