Save Your Avocado Seeds

When you try to live a sustainable lifestyle all and everything is useful and having children just ups the game. BC (before children) I use to live in a self serving lifestyle, I was financially stable, not set, but stable. Shopping trips were often, and “wants” instead of “needs” were justified. It was fun.

I didn’t know anything different my life was all about myself and I STILL didn’t know who I was. I spent my 20’s wildly, my 30’s caring what others thought, and now my 40s with an awaking.

When life starts to slow down then, you are able to reflect what is. You begin to realize it all didn’t matter in first place, living in others expectations didn’t matter.

Immerse your Avocado seeds in water. Within time you will begin to see your seed cracking as a root will try to form. Replenish water as needed.
Your pit should start to sprout roots and a stem in two to six weeks.

Once the stem reaches six to seven inches tall, cut it back by half.
When the roots have grown thick and the stem has leaves again, plant in soil in a pot about ten inches in diameter, leaving half the seed still exposed above the soil.
Keep your avocado plant in a warm, sunny location.
Water frequently with an occasional deep soak. Keep plant moist but not overly saturated. As with most plants, make sure the soil drains well.
Pinch the stem back every time your plant grows another six inches or so, in order to encourage a bushier appearance.
If you live in a warm-enough climate, plant your tree outside once it is big enough. In time (we’re talking many years), it might actually bear fruit.

The simplicity of life is what you will find in the end. The “wants” will always be there. Sit with it, don’t act on impulse and life goes on.

“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.”

Wayne W. Dyer
