Patiently Waiting


Our original avocado tree has about 30 fruits. The Mama and I counted them a few weeks ago.

I learned that avocados start to ripen once they're picked, and the best place to store avocados are on their trees. Up until a point. And, that's when they look like they're about to shrivel, which means they'll soon fall. Those we won't want to eat. I'm sure the Mama would still say, "Nothing wrong with them." Anyway, I don't want the avocados to get to that point.

Maybe after Thanksgiving, we can pick an avocado and see if it'll ripen in two weeks. Yummmm. Knock on wood.

  1. Oh I love avocados and they must taste great when they are literally right from your own tree instead of store bought

    1. Our first crop was 2 years ago, which was 7 or 8 years after we planted it. I recall it tasting pretty yummy. No crop last year. Maybe we waited too long to harvest them the year before.

  2. Envious of your avocado tree! Since we pay more than one $ for each!

    1. We've been paying $2+ for the organic ones, so I'm really happy for our crop this year.

  3. I do love avocados. When I was little my friend across the street had an avocado tree in her back yard and we'd enjoy them. I love avocado on toast!

    1. I like avocado smushed on bread. Why haven't I ever thought of toasting the bread. Must try that.

    1. Sometimes I think about using some for my face, but my tummy always says, "Nah!"
