More Tree Planting

We had an unseasonably sunny spell! So, these little babies were on hold. No planting first until it rains more. Tonji says there is a short La Niña and that it should start raining again soon. Crossing fingers. Everything looks nice and lush though.

Tree Planting 2016

It’s rainy season, time to plant the seedlings! These were grown from seeds that were planted in October 2015. They are the biggest of the seedlings we have growing in the tree nursery.
