I was happy.
'Let's grow our own beanstalks to eat, Mummy!'
I was childish and unknowing. One bean could only grow one stalk. My mummy humored me though. She said okay and we bought a pack of beans. No biggie, I would grow and take care of them all.
I was equipped with plastic cups, cotton wool and dried green beans.
'We'll make our own beef noodles* with these beanstalks!'
I must have been really naive then. But the passion for growing plants has not left me. I'm growing avocado.
That's despite all I've read about it growing to 5 meters in height. I'm going to try because I really love eating avocado. Haha, I guess its a dumb reason. But hey, why not? I believe with some pruning, it'll stay a reasonable height.
