Update:


In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

It's Harvest Time....

Way back on June 11, I posted The tale of my daughters heroic effort to save a pineapple top from certain destruction. She faithfully tended to it for well over three years. So here we are nearly 5 months after that post. Today we were able to harvest this precious little pineapple. Eloise was so excited....

She wanted to do the honors...

This part was a little tricky, so she left it to an expert.


Grandpa was excited too!
The fruit was small, but so delicious and sweet.
The plant has started a new shoot, but no flower yet.
Eloise has already planted the top in another pot.



Not to change topics, but would ya look at the beautiful shrimp my Dad just bought for $3/lb.




We may have tiny pineapples, but we got some big o'l shrimp!

I LOVE THIS PLACE.
