# 92 Avocado...picking and planting...

Today, it is all about the avocado.

Love them!

In salads, in guacamole, in a BLT....yum!

I used to have problems picking out one that was "just right" until I read this article.  The secret is in the little stem.  Flick that off.  If it is green underneath, it's a perfect pick.  

After using an avocado in our salad last night, I thought I'd see if I could start a plant with the seed.  Remember doing that as a kid?  Here's a short video that shows you how. 

We need a little green around here - too much snow!  Sigh!

  1. I love avocados! Love them! I have often declared that avocados are good on everything -- except pancakes! And there is nothing better than a BLTA. Yum!
