I recently received a gift of more than 100 fresh pineapples from an anonymous donor. Every square foot of horizontal surface in my office is now covered with pineapples. Truly, I have a most welcome surplus of fruit (which I really need as I am greatly over-weight). So now begins my “pineapple diet”. Can Eric eat 1 pineapple a day until his prodigious mass declines to reasonable proportions? This should be an interesting experiment.
Seriously, one of the simple pleasures of farming is being able to share my knowledge and experience with other people. That is why I maintain this website, to help other growers solve their problems (and to cut down on the dozens of e-mails that I receive daily. Better that folks read a canned article than I explain the same thing over and over again).
I am well and truly humbled by the generosity and support of my esteemed clients.
God bless you all.
