03/05-12 Week in Review

Another week... another...?

Well, more progress... the pineapple is beginning to take shape (see how it's beginning to "crown" on top, and how the purple flowers are more visible...?) This is the 3rd week of photos, and the 4th week since the bud started to appear; at this rate it's going to be several months before a fully-grown, ripe and mature pineapple develops. That's okay -- I'm patient!

Whilst preparing the meal below, I was readying the hibachi. There was all this peeping close by. I looked around to discover a hen and her brood. She would scratch in the dirt - then peck - and the chicks would scramble eagerly to the exposed patch of earth to mimic their mother.

Very cute and entertaining until it started to downpour! Then they took cover in the bushes.

With the rain came a drop in temperature and it was nice to have a blaze of charcoal heating the cast iron grill. When finished, this is what I had prepared...
