Don’t you just love it when indoor gardening projects work out like they’re supposed to?
I have been planting pineapple tops, for almost a decade now, in hopes that one of them would present me with a baby pineapple.
About a month ago I was giving my pineapple plants a much-needed deep drink when I had an epiphany.
Why don’t I start treating my pineapples differently? Like something nutty as in talking to them?
So I touched the leaves gently (because pineapples have teeth) and asked if the plant would please bear fruit. I gave it its long drink of water, sat the plants back to their sunny spot, and waited with expectation. I used “The Secret” aka, the Law of Attraction with my pineapples.
I really don’t know all that much about pineapples, since I live in Michigan, so I figured that asking the pineapple plant to bear fruit might just be the ticket to some tasty fruit.
The plant got one more big drink of water, as I told the plants that I was looking forward to eating their fruit soon, and then sat it back in the window.
Low and behold, a baby pineapple appeared.
After a decade of trying to grow pineapples and all I had to do was ask (and expect) the plant to bear fruit? Are you kidding me? Now I’m kicking myself for not trying that earlier.
Now we wait for the pineapple to get bigger. According to a fruiting page online I’ll be waiting until about Thanksgiving, as pineapples take 6 months to mature.
Pineapple with my turkey dinner? Oh, yea! I’m looking forward to this Thanksgiving this year.
