Pineapples growing in Buckeye Lake? Well, this now ripe small pineapple has been growing for months in Wil Douglas' WJD's Hair Design shop on Ohio 79 in Buckeye Lake. The plant, which is a couple years old, was started from the root end of a store-purchased pineapple. Thanks to a lot of care and a very sunny southeastern exposure, Wil can enjoy a homegrown pineapple. Beacon photo by Charles Prince.
