It’s springtime in the avocado groves! The trees started blooming weeks ago, but by now the hills are a mass of yellow blossoms! You can hear the bees buzzing in the grove as they pollinate each tiny blossom. The tree in this photo had a few “off blooms” in January, and the fruit has already had time to grow into plum-sized avocados. This is one reason that some avocados are mature enough to pick very early in the season, and others take longer to be ready.
With such nice weather, I’ve been getting out to ride around and watch the progress of the springtime bloom! In today’s post I even have a video for you!
