It is nearly time to start to plant out more trees.
I really had no set agenda for this. Not so soon at any rate. It is simply occurring like a strong feeling. An idea or thought about what I should probably do that is accompanied by a yearning, a compelling urge to follow through on it. And in my procrastination to do so, it only feels like its’ getting stronger. Urging me to go check out the top of the garden.
It could be the Muse with a Green Thumb. I’m not sure. Maybe a random impulse. But I’m getting a strong message or feeling to plant avocado trees in the top right corner of our block. I’ve read a bit about avocado planting and development and it might be a good spot. Though I could think about it too much and get quite involved in an intellectual debate with myself and not do anything at all.
So I have made the resolution to take the seeds I have and plant them out tomorrow. A simple task. But not nearly so easy, in reality, I am sure. The soil will need a little attention. Still, best to undertake the exercise and be done with it than be awoken at 4am each morning with the equivalent of a feather to my twitching nose and a universe/garden/muse/intuition or subconscious mind . . . . . whatever-it-is, reminding me to take the shovel and plant the damn avocado seeds!
At the very least, if they ever need removing then I guess I’ll cross that bridge when it comes. So the downside is minimal – I hope. And the upside, quite a rewarding stand of avocado trees that may or may not fruit, but will no doubt look good anyway.
Because they do. To me, a well kept avocado tree looks like a good tree.
