Pineapple Anyone?

My husband and I bought this cute little pineapple plant last year and really enjoyed eating the fruit.

Once we picked the (one and only) pineapple it just sat dormant for the longest time. I wasn't sure if it was ever going to do anything. Then we had the freezes this year that destroyed so much of our gorgeous foliage around the entire state that I was sure this poor little guy had very little chance of making it. You can see where the leaves have been cut back removing all the dead parts from the frost.

Well, my husband was out there last week and noticed a little bud coming up from the center and sure enough, it looks like it's going to make it after all.

I don't think I've ever seen a pineapple plant before. We are just lucky to have fresh pineapples in our supermarkets here in South Dakota! It will be delicious, I'm sure.
