Summer Solstice – Evening

Evening fell the fragrant scent,
From Linden flowers and as we went,
The drifting clouds full moon delight,
Grateful Spirits this Solstice night.

#14 Oak seedling #15 – June 13

The same day we dug up the acorns we transplanted them into individual tubes. These are 4″ diameter x 14″ long pieces of vent pipe with a plywood bottom. Our plan is to give them plenty of room for their long tap roots. When it comes time to put them in their final home, we will remove the plywood bottom and slide the whole plug of soil & oak tree into the ground, without disturbing the roots. That’s the plan anyway; stay tuned.
