This blog post is about my dearly loved avocados.


This post is about my avocado plant and how much its  grown.The avocado started off  as a puny little seed about 5cm tall on the 9th of June 2013 so check that post out if you want to learn how to grow an avocado for yourself.


It kept growing and growing and growing and it is still growing today.I did another post on the 14th February 2014 to show how much it had grown .

Today is the 28th of March 2017 and it is taller than a ten-year-old boy that is the tallest in his class and is not your average.I have got two more avocado plants but they are not quite as tall yet (growth mindset) .I have had to put the avocado plant on the floor because it is so enormous.

The first day of spring and new beginning for this blog.First Blog, the big bomb!

Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely mothers out there.This blog today is about ' The Big Bomb'.I got this idea from a Youtube post showing you how to make a primer for a bullet using matchheads.(Mum didn't know I was making this because I didn't tell her) .Until she found out when she heard this sound like a gunshot in the garden.


To start with I crushed up 5 big match-heads and put the sticks in a bag. I used these later for kindling. Next, I scraped the side off the matchbox until that was a fine powder.After that, I gently mixed the two ingredients together and pushed the mix into a tinfoil square 7cm long.Then, I carefully folded up the tinfoil and moved outside with it.Finally, I put on my safety glasses and  put it on the top of a dry brick. I hit The Big Bomb as hard as I could and  it exploded into lots of pieces with a loud bang that made my ears ring for five minutes afterwards! 
You should check with an adult first unlike me and ask them if it is ok to try this fun experiment.

Do not stand too close to this bomb as it will obliterate anything in its path.
