Every morning he goes out the back to inspect them, make sure they are OK, and give them a little word of encouragement to grow a little more...it's so funny!
The Meyer lemon tree is growing in a pot, producing so many lemons, they were hanging down with all the weight, that he had to build a support for the lemons to rest on.
Last year, we bought a fresh pineapple to eat, it was yummy!..
Dh cut the top off and planted it in the pot with the lemon tree.
At first we didn't think it would really do any good, but have a look at it now....it's bearing fruit, and little baby pineapple shoots are coming out from the side.
Dh pulled off the babies when they were big enough and planted then in little pots...it will be interesting to see if they bear fruit.
The way it's going, we will have a little pineapple plantation of our own..

Unfortunately our place is too small to grow one, they are so beautiful when in flower, the most gorgeous show of lilac flowers ever, have a look at this post Meggie has of one growing near her.
They will eventually go to good homes of family and friends.
