On Avo Farming: Part II


Although I initially wanted to keep my miniature avo orchard indoors, I have finally given up and moved it outside. The move seems to have been good for them, because two of the seeds have put out roots, and another four of them have started to open up. More importantly, they have remained more or less precisely where I left them.

A long time ago, I became convinced that armies of devious bovine were secretly sneaking around farms and arranging the trees in straight lines. I am sure this has something to do with preparing for the immanent human enslavement that the penguins are planning. However, the trees on my farm (which measures a vast 750 mm x 500 mm) have not moved at all.

There are two possible reasons for this. The first is that my farm is completely cattle proof. The entire farm is raised almost a meter off the ground, and located in a garden surrounded securely on three sides with precast concrete walls, with a steel palisade fence on the fourth side. However, I do not believe that the precast walls would stand up to a bovine assault, and I am not convinced that bovine would be unable to climb over the fence and negotiate the spikes on top, which leads to the second, slightly less comforting reason.
