CAUTION, Avocado leaves, bark, skin, or pit are documented to be harmful to animals; cats, dogs, cattle, goats, rabbits, rats, birds, fish, and horses can be severely harmed or even killed when they consume them. The avocado fruit is poisonous to some birds, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) lists it as toxic to many animals including cats, dogs, and horses. Negative effects in humans seem to be primarily in allergic individuals.
I love Google but sometimes it fails me. Earlier today I was looking around for a resource which would help me determine the types of food I would be able to easily grow in my state. While I couldn't find a website I was pleased with, I did find this little gem:
66 Things You Can Grown At Home: In Containers, Without a Garden
Many of the things in this list I was shocked to discover could be grown indoors including apples, pears, avocados, different citrus fruits, bananas, and beans. Included in the 66 items are some herbs, so it's actually less than 66 food items. The article is not thorough enough to be a source in itself, but it's definitely enough to give anyone some ideas and get them started.
Maybe I am late to the party with this one, but I felt it needed to be posted as I'm sure many people, especially those who live in apartments, would be glad to know all the things besides herbs that are able to be grown inside. If anyone has any experience growing these types of things indoors, please share your experiences if you would like.
