Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. In the past, blogging about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette were a big part of the blog. I'm giving that up though. I just can't handle it anymore.
Not quitting my day job for farming
I am so super busy at work and have lots of posts coming up, work-related, but I'm going to get into the boring part of my life. Like the post itself is really boring, but what's going on at my house this week.
A while back I posted pictures of the pineapple that I started growing.
A few years ago, I bought a pineapple plant at Home Depot on it that had a small pineapple on it. After several months, when the pineapple was finally ripe, I took the top of that pineapple and rooted it.
The original plant died, and I realized last week that it wasn't anything I did. It's just nature for the "mother plant" to die.
Anyway, I rooted the top of that pineapple and grew another plant. After a couple of years, it started growing a fruit. The first picture was from September 1, 2014.
Yesterday, the pineapple was finally ripe enough to pick. Basically, it takes 7 months for fruit to grow and mature. It's been the coolest plant to watch grow.
The rotting banana is there to show a size comparison. The banana was rather large though. It may be the best smelling pineapple ever. My kitchen smells good.
I know the pineapple probably won't be the best tasting, it will probably be a little sour, but my biggest worry is if I can get this top to root and grow. They don't always work. In fact, one of my smaller starts may have just bit the dust.
And I know I'm a total dork for centering a whole post on this, but I am a boring recluse.
