Ryan's avocado adventures

So....we have two fantastic (and freakishly tall) avocado trees in our backyard (cool!). The only problem is getting the darn things down because apparently nobody in Uganda has given the concept of pruning trees any serious thought! **Shout out to Dad for reminding me that this (not that American fruit trees are curiously more conveniently sized) is the reason why fruit trees back home are so much easier to pick!

So, here are a couple short videos of my clever hubby choosing a safe and innovative alternative to the Ugandan method of picking avocados by climbing trees with machetes. The result? Two avocados and a man still alive to eat them! :-)

Enjoy!

  1. I don't even like avocados, but I still found it amusing to watch Ryan trying to get that avocado out of the tree...lol
