Because it’s probably boring if I type an entire post about the word “try” I livened it up with pictures of The Avocado Project. Here goes:
Step one ->
Buy an Avocado
Step two ->
Eat an Avocado
(sorry no pictures of this event)
Dry for a couple of days
Step four ->
Put sticks into it so it can dip in water
Step five –eight
Wait, wait and wait some more. (think of ridiculous names for your plant to be/settle for Mister Q)
Start over again (because kitten thought Avocado Project was in fact a ball)
Side note: I did not overestimate my avocado growing skills and had a plan B, appropriately named Misses Bee. But Misses Bee is not growing, maybe heartbroken for the loss of Mister Q.
What have I learned up to this point? Well, for one thing that I’m not a supertalented avocado grower (is that even a word?) . Also that it’s not wise to put my avocado-in-process pots within the reach of my cats. But most important: if you want something (finish a book/grow an avocado/buy a vacuum cleaner with a name) you have to keep trying. And trying. And try again.
Like the green froglike person said: there is no try, only do.
(something like that anyway, sorry Yoda)
So Do Try. And grow your own luck!
