Tree Planting....Happy Arbor Day!!

It is that time of year! We plant trees with the Boy Scouts in April. This was one heavy load. There is a secret to successful tree on.....

Wow! I would love to have one of these augers to help me along in my yard. Go baby, go!
It is like magic!
What a perfect hole....looks somewhat like Gopher's hole from Winnie the Pooh-ha!
And, the planting begins.
Finishing touches.
Looking really good. Several more to go!
Here is the secret to planting and caring for evergreen trees. Plant evergreen's only in the months of the year that include an "R" in that months name. There you have it! So, take time to plant a tree today. We are busy with 2 peach trees, 2 apple trees and I need to throw a marker in the ground where I planted an evergreen last year. It was a tiny seedling and has done well, but, I fear my husband will forget and mow it down with his huge tractor. There was an incident last year...not once, but twice with my Grandmother's rose. Need I say more? HA!
