So a few weeks ago in late January, Josh posted a link on my timeline for a product that would allow you to grow your own Avocado tree. Uhh....does he know me or does. he. know. me. HE probably thought it was just a funny gig, but here I was watching videos, googling reviews, and seeing if this was a legit way to grow another plant! Less than five minutes later I had a confirmation email from Amazon and an email saying my AvoSeedo was on its way! (Happy Dance). Well anyway, life goes on and of course we all work and with all these other plants to tend to, the little avocado grower slid to the back burner of my mind. Even when they arrived I wasn't THRILLED to grow an avocado from a pit (I think the excitement wore off when I realized it would take a long, long time for anything to happen). As it turns out, the instructions say it could be one to three months before the pit germinates. WHAT?! Who has times for this? So I come home from yet another grueling shift, walk into my kitchen, and there's the cutest little pale avocado pit floating in a little green boat with a flag on the mast that says "2/2/2017." D'awww, Josh decided he'd be a plant connoisseur for, meh, five minutes and grow a tree (Hey, less work for me). So basically, you eat the avocado, wash the pit, PEEL the skin off the pit, fill a cup/bowl/whatever-can-hold-water with - you guessed it - water, then sit it someplace with light for 1-3 months. One...to...three....months....later you have a....tree? I imagine it will look something like a fragile brown stick coming up from the pit. I changed the water after one week, replacing the tap water with bottled water. So if I can be patient enough, I may have a tree on my hands!
