Avocado 004

Avocado 004

I've been doing some planting recently--I have zucchini and watermelon seedlings in peat pots, and bell pepper plants that I started way too late to actually get in the ground. I've also been nurturing these avocado seeds since January. It's an experiment--I read about growing avocado trees from seeds on You Grow Girl and wanted to try it for myself. I'm not too sure on the whole growing a tropical plant in Ohio thing, but it's fun to see the seedlings progress. This is from early April--both sprouts are much taller now. I'll have to take more photos for documentation purposes and post sometime this week. I think my thumb is turning greenish!
