This is the second video about what changes here at the Manor in winter... not that we have actually had any winter. It has to be coming eventually.

Excellent botanicals suggestive of much culinary.
Some of the most moribund-looking tops have grown on just fine. They are truly one tough plant which produces food, all too rare to have food-plants being flexible and abundant.
With the pineapple left for a long time far too long and rooted ok i trimed off the half dead leaves and removed lower leaves so if some of the top is green will probably grow.
Ditto on the pineapple re not having to root in water. I don't even remove lower leaves - I just poke the top into the ground and they all take off just fine.
Looking lush Andy, especially when we remember how it all started out. My Bell chilli from your seed are finally turning red on the plant. I've been using the green ones minus the seeds as a capsicum replacement in quite a few dishes.
You do know it's not winter yet don't you. Still autumn.
Everything and everyone looks healthy and happy Andy.
They are as tough as old boots and can be transplanted at any time during their growth although I suppose it puts them back a bit. Oh you need to leave the end dry for a few days before planting. You'll find embryo roots (of course they have a proper name which escapes me now) under the leaves.
Thanks Elaine. I didn't know that.
Strip some of the bottom leaves off and put the Pineapple top directly into soil either in a pot or garden. No need to run the risk of rotting by putting it into water.
Passionfruit - drool.
