How to Hatch a Tree Part II

Remember these little beauties??? No, they are not brain sucking worms or aliens incubated for colonization of the planet.

If you can't remember or are new here, check back at "How to Hatch a Tree."


These are newly hatched oak acorns. It's time to start planting oaks now!! Observe the live oak acorns with a white tap root shooting from the apex. The root has has emerged and is searching for deeper ground and water. These are the anchors for the new baby trees and the main line to nourishment and growth. They want to be planted now.


Now we have to get the planting locations ready at the new yard. Hi ho it's off to work we go...

Ella says, "Help Ma, these are going to eat me!

We try and plant trees on our property once a year. I really enjoy it. Ella is just adorable. She looks like such a happy baby. Hope you have a happy planting day.
