Pat sent this picture with the suggestion that I use it for a wordless Wednesday post. Once I saw it, I thought Oh no! This picture answers an age old question, or at least one of my age old questions. Where do avocados come from? I am a child of the Great Lakes, cold snowy winters and hot humid summers. The Great Lakes region grows a lot of different kinds of fruit and vegetables, but I don’t think avocados are one of them. I always thought that avocados came from the Jewels or maybe the Giant Eagle, maybe they grew on vines or in the ground like potatoes. Imagine my astonishment when I saw the picture. Avocados come from the sky.
