Perpetual Pineapples

Backyard Pineapple Patch

Our patch produced eight pineapples this year from plants that needed to be replaced at the end of the season. Those aged plants were replaced with the tops of their own pineapple fruits (the smaller plants towards the back of the patch). In a sense, the old plants were replaced by themselves, just like the old ones had replaced their ancestors in the past. They just keep growing, giving, and then regenerating once again in an amazing and delightful perpetual cycle.
