Got a good start with an avocado tree

Considering my current circumstances (long story and I don’t want to bore anybody), I figured I’d better get used to having growing things not too far from where I sleep. So I started growing an avocado tree in a pot after making guacamole out of the original avocado. I’m curious about two things:

It’s also lots of fun to grow pineapples. I like this guy’s
