    Stopped eating avocados. The health benefits and taste is not worth the price our environment pays.

    I love avocados but since learning about the bad practices surrounding their factory farmed production I have drastically reduced purchasing them. But I’ve saved pits and am growing my own as container trees! Zone 5b and 2 year old plants so far.
