Avocado Update

It’s been awhile since I’ve checked in with a progress report on the four avocado seeds we began nurturing back in August. While I’m sad to report the demise of the slowest-growing one that fell victim to Ranger who de-potted it after we potted it and moved it outside, the other three are all moving on up… each at their own pace:


The one on the far right is waaaaay out ahead of the other two.  The one in the middle, frankly, I was surprised to see sprout — and that only happened about a month or so ago. The one on the left is somewhere in the middle of the two.

Closer-up snaps of the two smallest ones after the jump.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
