This past weekend I planted this avocado tree, a gift from a friend. My family is big consumers of avocados, during the season and we spend a great deal of money buying locally grown avocados, so is time to start growing our own.
It will be a few years before I can harvest fruits from this little guy.
I have come to the realization that my garden has an extensive variety plants, but other than my banana and key lime trees, I have no other fruit trees. We are blessed with great weather, which is excellent for growing tropical fruit trees, so I decided to move in that direction. The only problem with this new direction is that with every fruit tree planted, something else has to go.
First on the list is this giant white bird of paradise. I don’t like taking plants out of my garden, especially one I planted at the very beginning, but she is getting too big and is damaging the fence.
This space should be plenty for a mango and a couple of papaya trees.
