A couple springs ago, I decided to plant a garden. I bought seed packets and sprouted the seeds inside. One warm day, I left the seedlings outside to get some sun. When I came home, they were gone.
How could I be mad at something so cute?
This year I decided I would try a safe method — container gardening. To start out, I planted dill, Italian parsley and basil. I love having fresh herbs around!
I also planted an avocado seed, to try to spout a tree. I placed the seed in the pot, pointy side up, half covered with soil.
I put all of the pots on top of the table on our patio. When I came home today, I found the pot with the avocado seed in it tipped over; and the pit had vanished. I guess Lilah’s going to be growing an avocado tree inside her stomach!
Next time I have an avocado, I plan to try again. In the meantime, here’s a recipe you might enjoy. It’s an avocado smoothie I learned how to make in Brazil. I love eating these in Brazil. We pick our own avocados from the tree outside Josue’s house and they huge and perfectly ripe!
Vitamina de Abacate
Chop the avocado into chunks. Place them into the blender. Blend the avocado with enough milk to make a thick, but pourable, smoothie. Add sugar to taste.
If anyone has any container gardening tips, please let me know. This is my first attempt.
