They Are Growing!

What started as left-overs from preparing guacamole in June are now... taa... daaa...

Once we get more potting soil, they will go into larger pots, and become our first "house plants."  We hope they get as large as Peter's back in Houston.  He started it as a homeschool science project about 9 years ago and it is quite large, and growing in the backyard.  It survived hurricanes, torrential rains and negligent renters. Now we can only hope it survives the current drought.

The little babies won't be planted outside, of course!  We know avocados can't stand getting frozen, even a little bit.  So our tropical newbies will stay nice and warm in front of our south facing windows this winter, snug by the fire, just like us!
