Last Friday the kids each brought home a White Pine from school. They were each very proud of their little trees and were anxious to plant them.
Not knowing how our yard is going to be dug up to fix things up over the next couple years, we didn't want to plant them here, so Rich asked his grandma if we could plant them back where we get our Christmas trees. She insisted that the kids plant them near the picnic area, so they could keep a better eye on them and watch them grow. :-)
The kids invited their uncle to come along and help. Maybe with his horticulture/landscaping background their trees will have a better chance of making it! ;-)
We couldn't have asked for nicer weather to be outdoors. It was sunny and near 70 all day! This was actually only a tiny portion of the time spent outside that day.
