Whenever I walk through the shuk during avocado season and see huge piles of avocados piled high, I’m thrown back in time to my mother’s kitchen, which was always full of glass jars with avocado pits at different stages of development.

My late mother was a master at getting avocado pits to sprout. She also knew how to insert toothpicks so the pits wouldn’t touch the water below as they sat on the windowsill of our small balcony.
