It was nice to meet you and Paul, Nina. Glad you came along. You're always welcome. Good luck entertaining your girls more. It's fun and worthwhile. Let me know if you have any troubles. I appreciate your attendance on Sat.

Yep! just put the tops in the ground, don't bury the green leaves, just the top part of the pineapple ----- will take 2 years to pick a pineapple so be patient.

Very happy to have you as a friend Nina. Enjoyed your hospitality yesterday and am looking forward to more chit chat in the future. Your steep slope out the front would be good for pineapples and papaw trees. Up near Gympie they grow on steep slopes.
