6 weeks ago, my little brother, sister, and I tried to start an avocado tree. After waiting for a few weeks with no results, we grew frustrated and ready to toss out the idea that any sort of fruit could one day be born from our sad little seed. Then just as we had given up, the seed unexpectedly cracked in half and a healthy root sprang forth. Like with all things in life, results don't happen overnight and it's good when something as small as an avocado seed can remind you of that.
