  1. There is another reason to not plant from seed, one much more disappointing.

  3. We have some visitors from Mexico City and they wanted to see the peacocks so we ate at the Peacock Restaurant yesterday. After being seated we found one of our party had stepped in poop. We found there was two significant piles of it, either from a peacock or probably a dog. We were moved to another table and later another couple came in and were seated at the same table and again one of them stepped in it. When we left over an hour later it was still there for people to step in. Menu wise one man reported his steak was very good. All of the rest of us reported our meals were less than satisfactory. I had fish and chips and they were some of the worst I've had lakeside. I don't think I will ever be returning to this restaurant.

  4. Remember what Natasha says. You can leave the fruit on the tree for around a year gravity and plant health willing. Planting an avocado from seed it's around 8 years till thee first fruit. Yah long time. I'd look for a new breed called GEM or JIM avocado that only grows to 6-8 foot high producing a round avocado. The bumps will be a yellowish color. The 1/4 honey with 3/4 water spritzing flower areas works great to assure bees pollinate plenty of the flowers and there are lots of flowers when the plants bloom. Be watchful like having routine to see if flower buds are starting. There's an A and B type plant with the two having morning or afternoon periods of flower openings and closing. Tough game Fantastic plants. Avocado trees can get sunburned from heat and sun. If a freak heatwave hits try shading the tree. Some California growers were using a whitish stuff to spray on the trees to block the sun during heatwaves.

  5. Please keep in mind that Mexico has a limited supply of vaccine, unlike the US. Everyone who gets a 3rd shot is taking vaccine away from someone who needs to get a first shot. Wait until the vaccine is available from private clinics.

  6. Avocado and Papaya are pretty well available year round here. Right now they are harvesting Mangos and Tuna fruit. If they wait too long to harvest mangos, they get infested with worms. Tuna fruit, is a delicious Jalisco favorite. It is fruit from Prickly Pear Cactus. If you find some in the wild, bright red when ripe, get someone to show you how to handle them. If you touch the outside fuzzy skin, like Kiwi, you will itch for weeks! You have to burn off the fuzz over a flame. Fresh Mangos and Tuna, worth seeking out. I prefer the green mangos, just starting to turn red and yellow. Papaya is good green, shredded for salads, etc. Actually most Papaya consumed in the world is green. Papaya is difficult to grow, because you need one male plant, for ten females. That is a lot of Papaya!

  7. https://harvesttotable.com/how-to-plant-grow-and-harvest-avocados/ This site is quite informative about harvesting, and a few others things. Your photo looks a lot like the Hass variety, and if this is the case, fruit can be left on the tree as long as 8 months, picked a few at a time, brought indoors, wrapped in newspaper, and checked daily. Or you can store in the fridge for quite some time and then ripen at your schedule. There is, however, a time limit after which fruits will not be as tasty. DO NOT pick all at once!! The one thing you really need to know is they are shallow rooted and if you overwater you can kill them. Been there. Done that.(Well, landlord's handyman did.... but I would have stopped him sooner if I'd known) Enjoy!!

  9. 1967 Austin Healy 3000 Mark 3 convertible, white with red leather. Three liter, straight six. Ran like a dream with little maintenance. I watched in horror as the body disintegrated with rust in Canadian winters. Memories of a then bachelor. SunFan

  10. Amen. I've lost my patience with anti-vaxers. They're extending the shutdown, crippling businesses and individuals trying to recover and limiting my remaining few years of blissful retirement. SunFan

  12. The Delta strain first appeared in India where they were using ivermectin instead of getting vaccinated. Do we really want to follow India’s example? your senility may be a sign of COVID-19. Have you been tested?

  14. Been through this so many times, in a village near Puerto Vallarta, called El Tuito they make a wonderful rich and creamy Queso Fresco. They slowly get very popular, and then disaster-someone gets listeria, etc. They are using unpasteurized milk, which is delicious, but dangerous. Do not buy it, please.
