Jeff, I thought they didn't start ripening on the tree, only after you pick them?  That's what I'd heard anyway.  Not like I can grow avos here.

Guac is great, we also throw them in a salad which means it goes with any dinner, no planning required - just give them a squeeze and if they're soft, put one in the salad. :)

I seem to remember from last year that they would get soft on the tree. 
I hate it when some critter gets a taste before I do.

Do you just give them away?

No, they are mine.  All mine.  BWAHAHA!
Birds and squirrels and possums and probably raccoons live around here.  Trouble is they just take a few bites and then decide to leave them on the ground.  I hate that.

The birds do the same to our apples and cherries, the little bastards.  I was just wondering if you gave some away before they rotted :)  We keep offering extra apples to the neighbors, but apples in WA aren't hard to come by.
