I once tried to do this with an avocado and it was a HORRIBLE FAILURE. :(

Why does this not work with apple pie? Anyway, that's probably a good thing. These are all healthy foods. And people usually buy healthier food for their dogs than for themselves. Our minds often play tricks on us when it comes to food.

This is my pineapple plant, it's between 2 and 3 years old and now has my baby pineapple!

Deirdre, that's awesome! Looks like that pineapple is coming in nicely.

Thanks Adam!! It's a little bigger now but hasn't come up and out of the plant just yet. The pineapple I took this top off of was delicious too!!!

That sounds excellent. I'm going to have to try that myself someday.

Fresh pineapple does sound very appealing!

I have also used the root end from a white onion and put it in dirt and it grows green onionsĀ 

Thanks for the tip, Brenda! I will have to try my hand at white onion growing...
