So when the papaya seeds that my mom mixed in an old planter started to grow, I was sure they would curl up and die after a few days. But, they keep growing. And growing. What used to be one tiny green leaf poking though the soil, now looks like this! And if all goes well I could be sharing the fruits of my labor in as little as 6-10 months!
And I also have another avocado coming in. I wonder how long this little guys will last?! Did you know that when grown from a seed, it can take 7-15 years before it will produce fruit! Maybe I can keep it in a pot for now. And eventually put it in the ground when it gets much bigger.
What will we attempt to grow next? I have managed to keep my bird of paradise plant alive for a few months now. I also just realized that there is a papaya plant growing right next to it and I have no idea how the heck that happened.
Have you grown anything lately? What is your favorite thing growing in your garden? Or do you have black thumbs like me?
