Triad --  Last February, I taught the GMS team to grow an avocado tree from an avocado seed. The steps are simple:

  • Remove and clean an avocado seed
  • Put three toothpicks around it to form a tripod
  • Place it on top of a small glass and fill with water.

That seemed easy enough - until I told them it would be 7-15 years before they would have an actual avocado.

I tried it but my seed didn't make it very long. A few weeks ago, I got an email from Sandra Hardy. She started growing her seed about six  months ago and came in today to give us a progress report.
