Zero Food Miles

Today we picked a pineapple.  It does not sound like much but this is one that we grew from a top that we planted over 2 years ago.

We may never be self-sufficient but is it great to know that there is yet another fruit that we can grow successfully.  There are at least another 8 or more that we have planted since that first one.  None have set fruit yet but I am optimistic.

No pesticides, no fertilisers, no food miles.  It doesn’t come much better than that.
