The Short Life Of My Avocado Plants

Okay, so, yeah… I tried that whole avocado plant thing like I said I would but… they died.

Meet Phil and Lil. Born sometime in May, they were happy and oddly shaped. Then somebody (not me) placed them in the 1000 degree window and they were killed shortly after. THE END. It’s sad but it’s the truth.

So then I tried a bean plant. Yay! My mom said they were really easy and that they would grow within the week.

I was so excited when they started sprouting. And then…

Boom! They died as well. It was going to be easy they said. It will be fun they said. Then It burned the following week in the oven we call a house. I wont even mention how my kid sister’s bean plant sprouted and had leaves within three days… It hurts me.

It’s April 22nd! Happy Earth Day!

Hey, you. No, not you, you. Yes You. I’m kidding, the person behind you.

On account of it being Earth Day i have decided to plant… something. Well, it’s a plant, i just though it would be weird if i said “plant” twice in the same sentence. It’s an Avocado plant, which i heard you can make from an avocado seed. It’s not supposed to flower but it should have leaves and that’s what i am really excited about. I’ve never kept a plant before so it will be very interesting to see how this turns out. That’s a lie, i’ve tried to do this before. December 2012 I tried to grow an avocado plant. It was freezing, and there was hardly any sun both of which the plant needed (warmth and sunlight) so i kept a light on it and would turn on the oven every now and then for the warmth (it seemed like the oven was the only warm place in the house). I ended up baking the avocado and the water in which i kept it was incredibly merky. So, to be honest, i will be trying this again and posting on the progress every now and then. Sense it is 90 degrees here i wont need to turn on the oven because i already feel like i’m in one. Now, because we don’t have any avocados in the house (which i, personally, don’t mind because i don’t really care for avocados) I cant do this now. But i would like to show you guys how it turns out when i finally get to plant one. Anyways, Happy Earth Day! Keep reusing, reducing, and recycling! And ride your bike more often, you look sexy doing it (Yes! I’m talking to you!)

Yuck. But it’s still pretty.

Question. How do you feel about avocados? I feel like i am the only one that dislikes this stuff.
