Some time ago Taylor grew an avocado tree from a seed she got from a grocery store avocado. Apparently a grocery store avocado can sometimes grow into a plant if the seed is split. Taylor heard this and when she found one she grew a healthy little tree which she deposited in my care after going to MIT. Of course I have a black thumb and so now the plant is in bad shape. Just like Taylor it needs some rehab.
My girlfriend Inge, who is a farmer’s daughter and has a green thumb, replanted it with healthy soil but it still looks kind of sickly.
Climate wise, the plant is in Los Angeles, Venice Beach to be exact. This is a challenge to all you southern California gardeners out there.
