It was a stormy day. I spent the afternoon doing laundry and baking cherry scones. I had already saved a peach pit and avocado seed, and also some of the cherry pits from the scones. I grew up with peach, cherry, and plum trees. I spent a lot of summer days swimming and gorging on fruit. They were the best peaches I’ve ever had.
I have no idea how you are supposed to plant these things, so I hammered open the peach and cherry pits, and poked the avocado seed with skewers and immursed it in water.
I love plants, like really love them. If greenhouses were available for housing here in Ontario, I would live in one (they aren’t, but maybe one day. I can only hope). Everytime I visit a greenhouse, or butterfly conservatory, I feel a zen-like calm come over me. I’m happy and the world slows down, just a little bit.
my most recent foray to the geenhouse
The plants I love the most I have grown from a seed: lemon tree, papaya tree, and pineapple. I had a jackfruit too, but it didn’t make it (I will be trying that one again).
I plan on adding an avocado tree to the family, but haven’t had a seed sprout roots yet, which seems odd, but I will keep trying with every avocado I bring home (every seed I bring home really). I love trying to sprout seeds and getting a cutting started.
