Avocado Tree

OK, so back on December 9, 2012 I decided to try my hand at growing an Avocado tree. Now most of you know (or maybe you don't) I live in the state of Missouri where the weather can change ever 5 minutes literally! Last Monday we went from 65 degrees and sleeping with the windows open to a rainy Tuesday that turned into snow and temperatures that were below freezing. Anyway, I LOVE avocados, and so does my family. So when I was on Pinterest one day I saw that someone had posted on how to grow and avocado tree from the pit that came out of the fruit. And that is what I did. I started with the pit and followed the directions (ok, so I fudged a little bit and put the toothpicks in the wrong spot, but then I fixed them). It has been about a couple of weeks since I spotted the root. I am so excited, my pit has sprouted a root!!! I still have a long ways to go, but the root is the first step!!! There is my little root!! I am going to start another one just to be on the safe side, and maybe I can get two trees!!! I told you I love avocados!!! I guess next, my daughter wants me to try to grow a lemon and orange tree... I am going to have to look to see if Missouri is a good state to grow them in, or if I am going to have to turn my lady cave into an indoor green house!!
