adventures in avocado propagation III

I’m back with another avocado pit update today! Since the beginning of 2018 I’ve been experimenting with growing avocado pits. This whole process is less about growing a tree, and more about watching something grow. Growing things is so rewarding and with avocado pits it’s super easy – just add toothpicks, place in water and

Digit review – an update

Back in November of 2016, I wrote a review on a money saving app that I had been using at the time for a few months, Digit. Over the last year and a half, I’ve gotten a handful of requests for an update, most asking ‘are you still using the app?’ and ‘do you still

adventures in avocado propagation – an update

Since the beginning of this year I’ve been patiently experimenting with growing avocado pits. It’s an extremely slow going adventure but one I’ve become completely enthralled with. I check on my pits multiple times a day (seriously, I can’t help it) and celebrate even the smallest bit of growth and change. It’s been since mid-March

found on the beach – 49 lighters

I think this just may be my favorite found on the beach arrangement! When I first started doing these arrangements five or six years ago I always made them in the sand. It was super important to me that I found a clear little section of sand with no other debris. I was really nitpicky
