we planted a couple of plum trees a few years ago and the good news is that they have blossomed this year! the bad news is it’s early spring and i think they probably won’t survive impending frost 🙁
some might recall two years ago when i wrote a PSA on how to avoid needing to check your underpants while jacking up a treehouse deck. as a result of that incident the treehouse deck as been juuuuuust slightly off center of the supports.
it was only a few inches off center which not enough for anyone to notice but me to notice, but it’s been annoying me for two years so today i jacked up the deck again very carefully and with odin’s help ever so carefully shifted it back and lowered it down.
now it’s perfect! though it’s never not disconcerting to but under the deck when it’s jacked up. i hope i don’t have to do it again!
while we will probably never know if george washington really did, there is no doubt that odin did, in fact, chop down the cherry tree.
it’s one of two cherry trees we have and while the other one is thriving, this one just wasn’t liking where we planted it and never produced any fruit.
after many years of having full, white pines for christmas trees we brought back a fir from the upper peninsula, partly because of the fond memories we have of living in the pacific northwest and christmas with noble firs.
but this one reminds me of the sad christmas tree in the “a charlie brown christmas”. or maybe i just need to give it a chance?
we lost our peach tree, but based on blossoms we’re about to get approximately 1 billion cherries the year!
