Look how wild that one is getting! I’m a little grossed out by how… meaty(??), for lack of a better word, it is on the inside. At this time it seems to be the only one growing all that extra stuff.

Look at all that growth! I’m super impressed with how quickly my little sprout seems to be growing. For a while it felt like it’d never make it’s way out and now every time I look at it I’m shocked how much taller it is. Even comparing these photos to the ones on the 21st of the month you can see how much it grew.

We put the air conditioning unit in the window and all of my plants had to be moved from the kitchen table! I’m a little bummed because they did look so pretty there, all grouped together but they’d never survive with cold air pumping in on them.

Lots of growth and an accident. One of my containers slid and fell from my even so slightly slanted windowsill. I was pretty disappointed, especially since that one seemed to have some really interesting and healthy looking roots. Instead of throwing it away, I decided to just pop it back into the container, and see if it would still grow. Worst case scenario? It dies. Best case? I grow a tree!

Didn’t see my avocados for over a week while I was off getting married. I expected to see a bit of change but I definitey did not expect to see all the growth that happened. All of my roots are SO wild! Pretty sure that one is just some sort of alien, not really an avocado! Look at the roots!
The photo above (and the one below) show the pit that had fallen and broken. Clearly that didn’t hinder it in the least. When I placed it back in the container the two pieces were carefully leaned up against each other so they wouldn’t just fall into the water. When I got back from the trip and finally checked on them there had been so much growth that they were both firmly pressed up against the glass. I’m thinking I might need to move it into a larger container so that it continues to have room to grow.

Look at the leaves starting to open up on that guy! I’ve waited so long for this!!
Have you started your own avocado pits yet!? If you couldn’t tell, it’s pretty darn satisfying.
