Tree Gift

One down, 1,181 to goPine_seedling

Normally at this time of year I write romance novels and eat bon-bons.  But this year is different because Daniel ordered 1,182 seedlings from our township's  Land Stewardship network (www.ontariostewarship.org).   

So now, not only is my back sore for all the wrong reasons, but my chocolate consumption is way down.

The seedlings arrived with bare roots, nestled together in large insulated bags.  They were supposed to be planted within 24 hours.   It took a bit longer.  (Even on our best day we planted only 423). 


TIP:  Using a bulb augur helps loosen up hard-packed soil.  Plus you get to look like Rambo.
