When Vince plants a tree, he goes all out to make sure they have every chance of surviving.
He starts by digging a hole halfway to China! Sunday I was talking to my parents on the phone and I looked out to see he had the big garden tiller down in the hole and it was about to get the best of him. He then took the wheels off the little tiller and that worked much better and wasn’t beating him to death.
Our dirt here is so nice!
He gets the dirt in the hole all loosened up, then puts in peat and who knows what else. Planting trees is one of those things I don’t even want to know about because once I know about it, he may expect me to help! 🙂 My job is to keep the new trees watered and I can do that easily . . without getting dirty or sweating!
The new pear tree is planted! Look how pretty it is . . looking out and not seeing houses and roofs and cars!! Have I said lately how much I love living here?
The pomegranate is planted and it has probably a dozen little pomegranates on it. I sure hope they stay on and mature.
On the left is the peach tree we planted to replace one that was here already that had died. In the center is one that was already here. On the right is the fig tree. And . . look at the background? Do you think I love living here? Yep, I do!
