Friend has been complaining about finding an avocado on his lawn every day for weeks now. Why would someone keep throwing avocados in his yard? Who would do that? You guys he just realized he has an avocado tree

I know right? When he thought they were Mystery Avocados he was leery of them

I sympathize. I kept wondering why the lemons from my tree were always rotten in the middle when I picked them. After 5 years I picked a green one and realized it was a lime tree.

After finding plums on the ground and one on the tree, I learned that I have a plum tree. This can happen when you have not lived at a place for very long. I was also surprised to see cherries on another tree that a nursery sold to me as a plum tree.

Ha. We picked up a free "apricot" tree that clearly someone was unhappy with.
The next summer we realized it was a green gage. Oops.

I had 3 'cherry' trees for 3 years before I realized they were very small crab apples.

As someone who grew up in Hawaii, I will say that running over an avocado with a lawn mower is a unique experience.

I had one before a hurricane knocked it over. I did the exact same thing, wondering why there were always avocados in my yard.
Until one shattered my car's windshield. Then I got frustrated and finally looked up. Lol

What’s going on in your garden(s), this week?
