I am not sure if these will ever survive in the ground, but my other ones are almost two years old. I am hoping that when they are a good size I can plant them and they will survive the couple of days a year that we have freezing temperatures. I don't think we really have the climate for avocado's, but I am going to try anyway. I am trying not to get to invested in these trees. If I start it myself and it dies all I am out is my time. If they live great, if not no big deal. I figure if I try enough different plants some of it is bound to do well. Someone told me you can grow banana's around here so I may try to get a couple banana trees.
Since a mass replant is not an option I am going to try to learn how to start my own trees instead of buying them from a nursery. I have a few more avocado seeds to try and I am going to try cuttings from our peach tree and then the pear tree. I should have just dropped a couple hundred bucks and bought some from the nursery that we bought the fig trees, but I want to see if I can do it myself. I am trying to take a more long term approach to thinking about the land around us. Normally I am have a hard time thinking twenty years ahead of time because I always think that we will have moved by then, but with two kids I don't see us going anywhere.
