I guess the title would make more sense if you could see the avocado seed in the above photo a bit closer. They basically crack open to allow the roots and stem to come out. It's pretty cool. If you have superb patience and can wait 5-7 years you can actually get an avocado off the resulting tree too! Don't know if mine will last that long but I wanted to try this just to see what would happen. It's pretty amazing the amount of food you can grow from scraps. I'll try to do a more extensive post on that before long. I've been growing green onions from scraps and they are a number of other things that work too.
My orchid now has 6 blooms on it! SIX!!! It's so pretty. I may venture to buy another type one day.
Little Willie had a little bit of a setback the other day, kinda my fault, but she bounced back and is doing pretty good now. I think she is still pretty sore and tired though. She has to rest a lot if I take her out in the garden with me. She tries hard to scratch and look for bugs and stuff and I help her out by digging a little for her. She enjoys that and I think she is slowly getting better. I think when spring finally arrives we'll all feel better. I am SO over this winter and cold weather and I am really looking forward to warmer days. I think most everybody is. What about you?
Edit: Found Willie dead this morning. Not really sure what happened but looking back she was having some difficulty. As I stated, Willie never developed quite right physically and she may have had more unseen problems there. She wasn't eating as well as I wanted and had to rest a lot. I guess she had more issues than I could see.
