Who knew it could be this easy? (read below)
That's right, Jeff and I have decided to have a baby avocado tree. With the help from http://www.avocado.org/, the pit from a Haas Avocado (which we will be purchasing tomorrow), and a lot of love we intend to nurse this into a full grown fruit producing tree. Jeff will most likely assume the role of disciplinarian and I'll be the one it comes to when it needs a shoulder to cry on.
In 5-13 years (talk about a long gestation period) we should have plenty of these to share with friends and family.
