You might remember a couple of months ago I wrote a blog post about “Growing Avocado Plants.” This is part 2: the great outdoors. I have narrowed down my avocado plant to one; it’s doing so well and I want to concentrate my attention on it

 

Back in May, it was still too small and the weather was still too cold for me to leave it outside. But when the end of May came I took the plant out, and what a difference that made! Because avocado trees originated from Central Mexico, it does really well in hot conditions. It loves the mid-day sun it gets, which encourages the plant to grow more leaves. Also its trunk has become much stronger thanks to the breeze my backyard gets.

My fiancé and I have other plants on our deck as well. As you can see from the photo below, we also have:

  • cherry/assorted tomatoes in the back row
  • a couple of kale
  • a hibiscus
  • 2 cabbages
  • 2 lavenders
  • a few snow-peas
  • and 2 gooseberries

I’m looking forward to the day that we can finally have vegetables to eat from our little garden.
