Anyway, since I accepted a job in Chicago and will be moving back in September (and subsequently changed the countdown), people have surprisingly asked frequently "what about your pineapple?" Well, there is good news and bad news, I'm afraid. The good news is that Pineapple #2 is doing very well. You'll recall that I bought potting soil and planted Pineapple #2 in a bigger pot from the beginning. This, I predicted, would lead to better growth. It seems this prediction is coming true. As you can see from the photos, Pineapple #2 is looking healthy and strong. The bad news is that Pineapple #1, while alive, does not look as vibrant as Pineapple #2. Pineapple #1, planted nearly a month before it's companion, looks a little wilted and run down. I'm not sure why this is the case, but it does not look like it's on the road to bearing fruit any time soon.
Well, without further adoo, here are the updated pictures:
