avocado

A growth plan

So of the near ten seeds I’ve tried growing, only one has survived and another shows some positive signs. 

If there are any botanists out there, what is that plant growing with my avocado?  There looks like a small sprouting plant that’s not supposed to be there. While I’m posting this, we just finished the movie, Martian, so “Go Botanists!” is my feeling right now. 

I’m taking up the GIY movement. Can I coin that one please? Grow It Yourself – GIY. 

 I even saved the egg shells and coffee grounds as advised. Maybe that’s what has helped this crop of two along. Before I tried planting them in the backyard and they burnt to a crisp in the Houston summertime. So I think this shaded part of the front patio area is better.  
Coming soon to a new planter…  

The one I’m pointing to has a small growth and each of the seeds are cracking so it’s expected to open soon. Well it’s winter now. One out of four of these would be an okay ratio considering I’ve gotten this far since 2011.
