Not at all. I don't like avocados much, although I'm developing a taste for guacamole since I married a Valley Girl. In all honesty, I'd trade you a whole truckload of avocadoes for a single, thick, juicy, dripping slab of elk steak.But I'm very happy for you. I can rejoice with those who rejoice.
Did you start the plants yourself? I've heard it's a touchy and lengthy process and that it required both sexes of avocado.I'm jealous.
Oh....you have NO idea how jealous I am!! I LOVE avocados...I eat them like apples! Yummy!!
Jealous??? I don't even know if I can eat them. Ever since I developed acid reflux disease (GERD)I can't hardly eat anything. If you can eat almost anything you would like to eat, then I'm jealous.
They come from a tree, Granny. The previous owner of the house I bought had the tree. Not much maintenance besides occational trimming, which I have not been very good at.
Um, rather. I don't like avocados much by themselves but I've started putting them into salads because they're supposed to be very good for you. . .and I think maybe developing a taste for them along the way. . .But you are very, very lucky. Congratulations.
This is gonna sound so strange, but I can't eat real vegetables. I mean, vegetables and fruits homegrown. Both my grandmothers had fruit trees. One grandma always gave us apples from her tree, full of holes and occasionally worms. But, delicious looking avocados. : )
Gee, Buck. I just had dinner. Thanks for that lovely thought.That is one very nice thing about Avocados. They don't soften up in the tree, which prevents birds and worms from helping themselves.
yuck. I can eat them if I have to be polite. I remember visiting a friend's parents at their avocado orchard. All of the dogs in the neighborhood were morbidly obese from eating all the windfall avodcados. Dogs love 'em. Those were the biggest fattest dogs I have ever seen. In art school we had to design a point-of-purchase display for avocados. One of the students designed her's for a pet store because she knew that dogs loved avocados. Tons of fatty calories in them nasty green things.
Oh, but I should add: those are lovely avocados, David. I like the idea of getting essentially free food out of your backyard. If only pizza and beer grew on trees. But then, not only would the dogs be obese from the windfalls, they'd be bleep-faced all the time. Just as well the way things are.
There is just something so good about avocados. When I was little my mom would make me avocado sandwiches for lunch and by lunch time the avocado would be a bit brown around the edges. They were good but I was totally embarrassed to be eating a "monster" sandwich (as they were called by my class mates).As a side note, the pastor at our church had a huge crop of avocados this year and so the Jr. High group sold them for camp money. They made 1,100$ as of today. People love their avocados!
I LOVE avocados. They are a major ingredient in the Mexican foods here in El Paso. Man, they put avocado in EVERYTHING! heheheYum, yum, yum! Yes, David, I am very jealous. hehe Nice bunch you got there!
