I love fresh pineapple.  That stuff in the can makes me shudder.  On Maui, you can always buy a fresh pineapple.  Usually we just buy them at Safeway or Costco, but sometimes we like to get a small sweet one from Down to Earth which is a health food store.  (We have a Whole Foods, but I have never bought one there)  But the best pineapples have come from our own garden.  Right now, we don't have any plants that are likely to produce, but we have some tops in water, so....

When it got big, this was a good one

This one was sweet

Starting some tops.  Yes, those are strawberries in the green tub
