Yoakum Avocado Orchard Planting, Dawn October 18, 2019

Guacamole Fans,

Saturday morning at 6:00 AM, having made coffee and had my first mug, I went out to start the final prep for getting the 12 Mexican avocado trees that I have been raising in pots this summer, into their permanent environment.
Yetti the dog came out around dawn to check on my progress, and went back to wag at Holly and Tommy that something was afoot outside that they should go check out.
They started planting avocados in the holes I had prepped, while I got another mug of coffee and Yetti stood guard.
Then we all engaged the planting together, and I watered the babies in for an hour.
Jenny composed these documentary images to share with you.

  1. Here is a man who practices what he preaches. Well done Dr. John.

    1. Why, Johnny Appleseed must be rolling in his grave! "Avocados? We don't need no stinking avocados!"

      Truthfully, I'm a bit jealous. Central Oregon, alas, will never be avocado territory. :)

    2. That link didn't work, but I presume it was from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
      Yep, nobody has grown an avocado in John Day Oregon, that I know of.

  2. Awesome!Job well done! Looks amazing!
