Back in November H had to bring an appetizer to work for a pot luck that they have the week before Thanksgiving. She decided on chips and guacamole. She then decided to use this recipe. It was delicious. She had recently read somewhere about using kitchen discards to grow plants. I told her we could grow the avocado pits using these instructions. I prepped them both and gave one to my mother. She really likes plants and growing experiments.
When we were at her house yesterday I decided to take a photo of her avocado since it is doing so well. Until this past week when she put it in the pot it has lived on her kitchen counter where it gets eastern exposure so there is plenty of warmth and natural light. It is now sitting in the dining room where it gets southern exposure and a fair amount of light.
How is mine you ask? Well, mine sat in my dining room for the past few months. It slowly grew an impressive bunch of roots but it never grew a stem so I brought it over to my mother’s house and she’s had it for maybe a couple of weeks so of course it’s now growing a stem. I really do have a black thumb, or maybe just a gray one.
