You may remember that I started an avocado tree from an Hass pit last summer. I overwintered the plant inside and then put the tree back outside for the summer. It kept growing - taller and taller and I knew it couldn't come back inside with me this winter. What to do with it? I could compost it, sure, sure. But then I had a thought.
I called the owner of my now-favorite organic nursery and asked if she wanted it. She was tickled! So off went Avo to her new warm greenhouse for winter.
The deck bench didn't remain empty, though. I was gifted with 3 Black & Blue salvias to join the one I already had, an annual that will bloom and attract bees and hummingbirds until frost.
What a great swap. Happy happy all around.
As for what else I've been up to lately, check out the sidebar blog entries. :-D
Monday update: 3.6" of rain in 16 hours. Thankfully, even though over half of it came down within an hour, there where no harrowing results like the previous deluge we had in June. ==================
