He’s trying to grow an #80 or he’ll dive trying.
Man if that's all it took I'd be all over it. I'll have you know staying home with the baby is way more fun than shooting 80lbers. Today I washed the cars, cleaned the garage and now I'm going to transplant some seeds. After that I might even have time to pick up the dog poop in the backyard. My life is super exciting, good times
Here's some seeds that sprouted via paper towel method. The little ones are loquat seeds I just got from a tree. They took about two weeks to sprout but aren't ready for transplant yet. Greg if you want any lmk I'll bring them to work. The tree is really close to the lifeguard storage shed in pedro. The flat seed is a mango, you have to peel off the cover and then there's this giant bean looking thing inside. I put those in a wet paper towel as well and they sprouted in about five days. I'm planting that one today.
The tall one is just a bad pix of the avocado seed I'm potting today. I read the best way to grow those is in water with toothpicks but you peel off the brown cover. I tried that and I'm 5/5 on sprouting them, it works really well. You can also do the wet paper towel on that but it takes like a month to sprout and mine kept drying out because I'd forget. The one in the pix may never fruit as it's not grafted, but I'll probably graft it later and then move it to the aquarium. My plan is to plant a few trees in the back, maybe after I retire and come visit they will actually have fruit. My grandfather planted one from seed and man it produced like mad but it was probably 8 years later.
