Avocado Tree

Have you ever wanted to grow an avocado tree from a pit? You know, like in elementary school when you stick three toothpicks into the pit and rest it on top of a cup of water.

We did it! When grandma and grandpa were here in March they started the pit. It set on the kitchen counter by the sink for a few weeks. I was so tempted to throw it out many times because it looked like nothing was happening. Instead I moved it to the top of the fridge. And it sat for a few more weeks. It had a long root and a tiny green leaf starting to sprout. I planted it and put it in the Laundry room window. Ta da!
