Eat Your Heart Out


I had to do some minor trimming to my avocado tree. I only took off 3 small branches......and this is what was on those branches.

I'm estimating I have just as much if not more left on the tree.

Son of a biscuit.

My grandparents home in FL used to have a huge tree. My brother and I would have to pick up at least 20 per week before cutting the grass.

My grandmother would eat them for lunch everyday. I didn't like them when I was young. I was a dope.

Hass....like butter. In fact, when they are really ripe, better than butter.

" grandma's yard as a kid "

My grandma on my mom side lived out in the country and had lots of different fruits and vegetables growing. The memories that stand out the most for me about that back yard is getting my ass stung.
I don't even like thinking about making my way to that Cadillac double stall 5hit house. When I seen a snake, all you'd see of me was ass and feet, cause I was gone.

To give you an idea of how much they are liked, a buddy of mine who is an LT, but was working, had the area Sgt drop by and pick up a bag for him
