Prepare yourself for a long, pictured-filled post today. But first, I want to thank all my lovely readers for wishing my mom a happy birthday on my post before last (I meant to tell you guys in my last post, but I kind of forgot :(
Do you want to know another wonderful way to start the day? Sure you do! And the answer is Breakfast Tacos!! Ohhh yes! You read that very right! Tacos for breakfast. It really can't get any better!
Breakfast Tacos (serves 1 hungry gal or guy)
3 corn tortillas, warmed
1 egg, scrambled (or cooked into a "scrambled patty") and then divided into three equal sections
Pinto beans (about 1/2 cup? I didn't measure)
Chopped cherry tomatoes
Fresh cilantro leaves
First, you've got to place your 1/3 of your cooked egg down the center of a corn tortilla like so:
Another delicious breakfast? Olivia's Chocolate French Toast! Yes, I finally made it, and I'm SO glad I did!
And now, I've kept my promise to you guys and have created a post on how to grow an avocado tree! I present...
Avocado Tree Growing 101
Here's what you will need to begin:
One of these guys...
A small glass or bowl
Step 1: Remove the seed from the avocado (make sure you also eat the avocado! ;)
Step 5: Once the root has been growing for a while, a stem will sprout out the top. I would recommend letting the stem grow at least six inches before transplanting the seed to a pot. Once you do transplant, continue to water it and keep in a sunny area. I would say to keep it outside during the warm summer, but bring it in during the winter. Or if you have a green house, you can keep it in there.
Also make sure that if you do keep it outside that you have some sort of protection for it (maybe some chicken wire?). I've lost one tree to the bunnies (they literally chopped it in half!), and I've lost another one to hail storms. So keep your little guy protected!
I've read that it takes about 50 years for a tree to actually produce avocados, but if you start now, then you can have fresh avocados in your old age ;)
So, do you want to see some pictures of my previous tree (the one that the went to the bunnies :( ? Of course you do!
Just before transplanting:
The daily question: What's you favorite way to eat avocados? It's never to late to start planning for you avocado plantation ;)
