Pineapple cutting + planting

Maybe you have seen several videos or so about how to cut a pineapple. If you haven’t good. This is the bestestest way to cut a pineapple. I don’t like to cut the shell/skin thingy off from outside to inside, too complicated! 😆

In case you want to grow your own pineapple, all you need is a pineapple. Look for one that has a dark green crown, meaning it’s not dried up. It also should smell like pineapple already, which means it is ripe. Only the intact crowns from ripe pineapples really grow roots – as of my own experience – so please pick a nice pineapple. If you are smart (and as my follower you must be smart) … you also pick a real sweet type. Some are rather sour even if they write “extra sweet” on the label. If you found your perfect pineapple, let’s go……

YOU NEED:

  • a pineapple
  • a BIG sharp knife
  • a small sharp knife
  • a cup to put in the crown
  • a plate (if you wanna serve the pineapple)


Twist the crown off the body of the pineapple. Put it aside we will take care of it later.


Now cut the pineapple into half. And then cut each half again. If your knife is blunt, this will be super hard.


The core in the middle can be very woody – you don’t wanna eat that – so remove it (its usually a bit lighter in color than the rest)


now you can loosen the flesh of the peel by sliding along the botton, not too close to the peel thingy as it has eyes, and you can’t eat them either 🙄


after that you can cut little pieces like I did and even move them a little, so it’s looking fantastic. If you just wanna eat the pineapple on your own, you don’t need to do that *tehehee* but it looks nicely when you have guests.

Ok now munch a bit of pineapple, we need to take care of the crown now.

if the crown had brown or yellow leafs, rip them off. My crown now looks like this. I put it in a cup filled with water. You should check the water at least every 2nd day. Some suggest to not change the water, but it can be really smelly. I use to change the water. Put the cup at a warm place. Temperatures should be between 18.5° –  26°C (65°–79°F). Yes Texas has excellent weather for this (Hi Hope!)

When you see roots, time to plant your plant into soil. I use regular soil and I fertilize my pineapple plant ever 2 months or so. I didn’t before and they died ….*sniff*. So I guess my soil wasn’t as good as I thought. In Hawaii the ground is Volcanic and contains lots of Iron. I use normal plant fertilizer. 😌

In summer I put them in the greenhouse. And I use to spray water on the leaves in the pm, also water it in the pm. In winter my pineapples are living on the radiator 😎


The left plant is from last year, the right one from today. Even in the bestestest surrounding a Pinapple can take 2 years or more to grow a fruit. So don’t give up too early.

And now a few pictures from Dole plantation on O’ahu.

 There it’s a baby!

 I can hardly wait for my pineapple to look like this!


IF I lived in Texas (Hi Pat) my backyard would look like this *giggle*

NOW GOOD LUCK………….try it! You have nothing to lose! ❤

How to freeze soup…

in case you cooked a lot of soup – like really way too much for one bunny – you can always put some in the freezer for later. Well you will need a freezer. 😅 In case you don’t have a freezer, you can’t freeze the soup so you better call all your friends for a little brunch on sunday. *tehehehe*

Okay back to the soup. My soup. I cooked way too much. Well I was just into cutting veggies till I realized I had cutted too much. But then I didn’t want to waste one piece of carrot so I made a big pot full of soup.

Before you freeze it in, make sure the soup cooled off completely. The warmer it is when you put it in the freezer the more energy the freezer eats to freeze the soup. I put my pot outside for an hour, as it’s super cold out there, and the soup was really cold after the hour of waiting.

to freeze the soup in you’ll need

  • some zip bags or just any bags that are ok to put in the freezer
  • a measuring cup
  • a pen to write on the bags
  • if the bags have no zipper you’ll need rubber bands
  • a soup ladle

now take a bag and put it in the measuring cup. I figured out this is the easiest

way for beginners to handle it. Of course you can put it right in the bag but as I wanted the same amount in each bag, I am doing it with a measuting cup. It should look like this now:

Ok now make up your mind how much soup you want to fill in. You can make smaller servings or bigger ones. I decided I want to fill 500ml which is one full measuring cup.

now close the bag – if you have a zipper bag close it. If you are using rubber bands. use that.

At t

Don’t forget to write what’s inside on the bag BEFORE you put the soup in. You are free to print labels etc. I just do it the easiest way.

I had a total of 5 bags. Now I can have super delicous soup whenever I want. lalala. Enjoy!🐰

The Tree thing

I posted about the chopped trees, do you remember? I am highly frustrated about enviroment surrounding us. It’s not just that, we are all frustrated on a high level for a longer time.

The neighbors really suck, to the left side there is a couple with 4 kids, she is from Syria, he is from Afghanistan. He is a hoarder, buys a lot and never throws away anything. That’s why we have a mouse problem in the garden, they love to live on his property. Anyways he is a liar, and so are all his family members. We now avoid any contact with them.

To the right is the Christian family, holier than Jesus, better than god. At least they pretend this and want this to be their image. We have no contact with them, they built the house there in 1987 and ever since they pretend to be something better than everyone else.  So the red big house is a inherited property. They sold is (moneymoneymoney) and the new owner (company) remodeld it and sold the tiny property, where the trees lived back to them. So someone of their family will build a house there.

Seriously we fighted centuries for this anti-noise wall, now it’s there and useless like hell. I will show you later on pics what I mean.

Anyway, in the past 7 years so many trees were cut down, we really don’t like to live here anymore. Everyone can look into our backyard, the highway pollution is increasing yearly and we have almost no trees to bring us some fresh air. Except for the big tree on our property. The afghan neighbor hates it. He chopped down allmost all his trees too when he bought the house 5y ago. He told me he likes small tress but no big tress. I tell you something. I like kids but no adults. *giggle*. He is so stupid.

We have 3 apple trees, a lilac tree and that biiiiiiiiiiiig Hornbeamtree (Hainbuche) and all trees will stay forever. The birds planted an elderberry tree in the corner of our property, we kept it but have to cut it back every year, as it’s growing over to the other property.

On the following pictures I will show you the before and after look of our neighborhood. Maybe then you’ll be able to understand our frustration. Please plant trees!

The last picture (scroll scroll) shows our area from above. I marked all chopped trees with a yellow dot (yellow line)
