Kevin spent the morning finishing off pruning our avocado trees. These trees have been neglected over the years and we thought we might have to get rid of all of them and replant brand new trees, but we decided we would try and nurture these ones back to health: nothing ventured, nothing gained. If it doesn't work than at least we can say we tried.
Kevin has removed all the dead branches and the moss that was growing on the bark. We need to add some good, rich compost mixed with lime to neutralize the soil. We want to find a way to spray them against pests and disease in an organic way... that's always our first goal. We're looking into our options.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
