Au Revoir, Trees

Last look at the TreeProject seedlings in my back yard:
Then loaded into the car:
Those tiny ones at the front are the transplants. Some of them are starting to grow, but they are a long way behind those which haven't been disturbed. Perhaps sowing more seed would be a better idea than transplanting when you get failure to germinate?

Here they are after being dropped off in the next suburb. The landholder they were grown for is collecting several people's trees from this house on Saturday. It was interesting to compare mine with another grower's:
Mine are the ones on the right.

In a couple of weeks we will have a planting day, and it will be a chance to check up on some of last year's trees as well.


  1. It's not supposed to be good to compare your little ones with others--at least for humankind --but it seems to me that yours are considerably more advanced:)

  2. You've done well Vireya! It is people like you who make a difference with this kind of environmental work. I for one really appreciate it. You are a treasure!

  3. Oooh they look gorgeous! How rewarding. Go you.
