Early this summer I buried the large seed of an Avocado in a flower bed behind my house just for the hell of it. I forgot all about it until yesterday while playing ball with the dogs, I found a strange weed unlike the others. Turns out I have a 8" Avocado tree (Hooray for Google Images, which made ID a snap
)! I dug it up and potted it (in the same mix I use for bananas), because a NJ winter is brutal to say the least.
Anyhow I just figured I'd mention it since I've never grown anything from seed before, and I feel a little proud (although I did nothing, Mother Nature gets all credit).
If anyone has Avocado experience or advice I'd appreciate it!
BTW: Avocado with Thousand Island dressing and small shrimp (tiny prawns are even better) is one of my favourite snacks ever!!!
