A grilled cheese sandwich is a terrific snack while reading CANNERY ROW. Did you start that book yet? BTW...grilled cheese with grape jelly spread on the top piece of grilled bread is like the bees knees.

Are you single? You busy this weekend? I think I just fell in love. =P~

But seriously, how big is your tree? I'd like to plant one but the only ones I've seen were pretty big and I don't really have a good spot for a big tree. Do you know if they can be kept small?

I guess I can share my recipe for beef broth.

° Take a large pot of water and boil a large piece of beef in it.

Girls, it's a real man-pleaser!

Grilled cheese for me consists of a thick slice of ham and the stinkiest swiss cheese you can find.....Yumm.

My tree is huge and very old (house is 60 years old this year). I thought it was dying a few years back, but I had my gardener cut off all the dead branches; gave it some avocado fertilizer, TLC and it started thriving. This past year was the biggest crop since I've lived here (13 years). I don't know how small you want to keep your tree, but the avocados highest up, were the biggest and standing on a 10 ft ladder with an 8ft avocado picker no one could reach them. I learned from the guy I bought my house from (friend of the family for over 40 years), you have to wait until the oils in the avocado are just right before you pick them, and I'll tell ya it makes all the difference in the world. Crop is done for the season and this year will be a smaller crop, but I will let you know when they are ready.
I hate the Santa Ana's this time of year, because I see the little baby avocados on the ground and only think what could of been.... :(

Yeah, every avocado tree I've ever been familiar with has been pretty huge and I don't want to block that much sunlight. But then again, there's always the front yard.... Some people down the street planted about 10 fruit trees in their front yard and parking strip a couple years ago. The place is going to look like a small orchard in another couple years. The nectarines were tasty. I hope they got some, too. :wink:

My avocado tree is in my front yard along with a tangelo, sapote, blood orange, lemon, olive and 2 apple trees. My backyard has about 4 orange trees, 1 grapefruit and a bunch of non-fruit trees (kinda like a rainforest).
The avocado tree is on the side of the driveway and unfortunaelty you have to be careful parking under it (will leave dents)

Geez! You looking for a roommate? I have a lemon, a lime, a volunteer fig tree just over the back fence and a 1 year-old nectarine tree. I'll probably add a couple more this Spring. I have all this ground; I might as well put it to use. And I'm one of two people I know who'd actually want to take advantage of having an olive tree.

Aaaahhhhh! Bachelor food!

Nothing like a grilled cheese sandwich actually grilled in butter, though. But skip the Velveeta. Tillamook or Colby for me. I like cheap wine but cheap cheese, forget it.

To a large extent, you control the size of the tree. Get one that is pretty small and spindly to start (and, of course, it will take a few years before it starts producing) but after the harvest, you prune the tree to keep it the size you want it.

I planted one in my landlord's yard back before I moved here. He lived in Covina at the time.

There also has to be another avocado tree in the area for it to breed with before it will produce

I know this has nothing to do with grilled cheese but this is a good breakfast
Bohemian Apple Waffles
Ingredients:


1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup chopped, peeled apple
Fresh fruit (optional)
2 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 egg whites
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Maple syrup, warmed
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cooking oil
Butter or margarine


Steps:
1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, beat egg yolks slightly. Beat in milk and cooking oil. Add the egg-yolk mixture to the flour mixture all at once. Stir just until combined, but still slightly lumpy. Stir in the chopped apple.

2. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form (peaks stand straight). Gently fold beaten egg whites into batter, leaving a few fluffs of egg white. Do not over mix.

3. Pour some of the batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker. Close lid quickly; don't open during baking. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grid. Repeat with remaining batter.

4. Serve with warm maple syrup and butter. Top with fresh fruit, if you like. Makes about 4 waffles.
