I am determined to sprout an avocado pit. This picture was taking when the kids and I tried and failed two years ago. But life is different now that we live on acreage pretending to be farmers the best we can. I mean, last summer we grew hundreds of gourds by mere accident! And when I tried to kill them to make space for the tomato plants they simply would not. That has got to count for something coming from a plant killer!
Via Pinterest, I found a blog called Organic Gardens Network which shares a detailed explanation on how to sprout one of these guys. Hopefully using their instructions we will soon be the growers of an avocado sprout and I will be happily self-indulgent in letting my friends know that I masterfully grew a plant from a pit, an almost near impossible task if you know me.
Urban's absolute favorite food is avocado, so pits we most definitely have.
Here's hoping for the Big Sprout of 2012
