Today we learned how to set pineapple tops in pots, and dug a new garden bed. The pineapple tops were graciously donated by Organic Steve in the produce department at Whole Foods in Coral Gables. Though it will be over a year before our new plants bear fruit, they will set roots long before that, and begin to thrive. Potted pineapple plants are a potential revenue earner for our program, making great sale items at markets and festivals.
