It’s been about a month since we planted “the little avocado that could” and just when we were about to give up on it, a little shoot peeked out of the dirt. Honestly, I thought it was part of the root that didn’t get buried far enough in the soil, but upon closer inspection I noticed leaves. Since then, it’s been growing like crazy.
I have really enjoyed this little experiment with my daughter. It was slow going and she lost interest for awhile, but it has definitely been a lesson in patience. (We started way back in April.) But given our recent success, we’re talking about starting something else from our book. I’m thinking lemon seeds.
What’s growing in your garden?
