about the dye plant -
Avocados are great because they’re so unexpected and they’re very versatile. You can achieve different colors from the skin and the pit. If you’ve ever cracked open the pit on an avocado, you’d see a pinky tone, which is the color you see here. Of course, I did not grow these avocados, but they are a very popular dye plant so I had to try.
