To grow a pineapple
Ok... I know this sounds really silly, but before I went to Hawaii the first time, I had no idea how pineapples grew. I actually thought they grew on trees. Ummm, now I know better. The cool thing I just found out is that you can grow a new plant from just taking the top off the one you're about to eat, remove the flesh, pull off a few bottom leaves and stick into dirt. So, I'm gonna give it a try here in Montana in a pot that I set out on the deck and bring in when the weather turns. I've got a great sunny window too. This will give me something to remind me of Hawaii when we're not there. Damn, it's hard to grow stuff here! Of course this is depending upon if I can even find a pineapple here. I'm sure the one's we get have been radiated, so wonder if they will even grow.
