Steward of Gondor Aug2005

I am a Steward of Gondor. I have been entrusted with the care and welfare of Gondor.

Gondor is what I've named my avacado tree I'm growing on my back porch. :)

I basically want to be able to say someday, "this guacamole is made from avacados from Gondor." I told this to my wife and she gave me the "you're a geek" look. I told some of my geek friends, and they laughed heartily. eh.

So anyways, I took an avacado seed and stuck toothpicks in it, and suspended it over a cup of water for about a month. After that time, it had sprouted a 2 inch root out the bottom. I transplanted it to a gallon pot and now after 5 weeks of being on my backporch, it's about 10inches tall. It will be a while before Gondor produces a good crop of fruit, but I'm patient and can wait.

I have to have two trees to cross polinate, so I started another seed-in-a-cup this weekend.

These thoughts are my own, unless they're yours. And if they're yours, we may have metaphysical problems beyond simple concept ownership and should probably talk soon.
