This is Senor Tree (not sure how to put the ~ over the ‘n’). He is a Giant Sequoia, but is still a baby — about 3 years old now. He has done very well with the move to Texas (from California) and with our unusually cold winter. Though, I think the winters his species is designed for are colder, but he would normally be covered completely in snow and nicely sheltered. Anyhoo, he has done well.
Finally, I got the cinder blocks for my first truly and completely raised bed. Poor Anaconda (that’s the car) was weighted down big time with 18 8x8x16 blocks. But she got them home and I set up the bed today. That bed has potatoes in it, and I’ll fill in the bed as summer goes on. I’ve read you are suppose to do that for potatoes anyways, so they produce more potatoes.
I also made bread today. A Saturday tradition is being developed. But today… I let the bread rise for too long, I think. What do you think?
