Trees growing in compost pile............

I saw several of these growing in our big compost pile. I wasn't sure what they were. DH said "Look, they're sprouting from a walnut seed".....which we have a few million of on our property. But I told him it didn't look like a walnut. Then I realized..........they are avocado trees! LOL. I've been eating avocados on a regular basis and putting the seeds in the compost. I'm in central Indiana and I'm sure they won't survive our usual winters. A friend told me to bring some in for the winter, but I've

got too much going on to add to my work. But as long as I keep eating them, they'll keep growing.
