Stuff in Our Yard

We were spending some time in the back yard and thought we'd share some of the stuff we found. The first thing we were pleasantly surprised by was that the fact that our pineapple plants are growing not one, but two pineapples! The first one is by the front patio, and this is the second time that plant has produced fruit.

The second one is in the back by the pool. That one also is producing fruit for the second time. We can't wait until they ripen, since we always use them to garnish our pineapple juice with Malibu drinks.

The coffee plant has a lot more coffee beans this year as well. Unlike the pineapple plants, there's not much you can do with a handful of coffee beans, other than have bragging rights to say that you've grown your own coffee.

And finally we threw in a picture of Simon just because he's cute! :)

I'm jealous. I don't have any vegetable or fruit bearing plants anymore. I really miss them, but I don't miss the mess that the tomatoes created!
