Avocado Seed - emi ito illustration Since the winter has been so brutal this year, I felt like I needed to try to bring spring to my home, since nature isn't helping.  I have been trying to grow a bunch of seeds and finally (!!!) my avocado seed started to sprout, after what seems like an eternity.  It has been really fun to check up on the seeds every day and watch the progress, and has made me feel more in touch with nature, where my food comes from, and all that sappy nature-loving stuff : )
