Zero Food Miles

Today we picked a pineapple.  It does not sound like much but this is one that we grew from a top that we planted over 2 years ago.

We may never be self-sufficient but is it great to know that there is yet another fruit that we can grow successfully.  There are at least another 8 or more that we have planted since that first one.  None have set fruit yet but I am optimistic.

No pesticides, no fertilisers, no food miles.  It doesn’t come much better than that.

  1. **sigh** I had a pineapple that was getting ready to pick. Some wild creature picked it and took it away, along with another pineapple that was about 4 months off being ripe.

    I was so proud of said pineapple as it was the 2nd & last on the pineapple plant…..
