The trees I planted behind my classroom survived my absence! Yay!
Before Christmas, I was watering them daily by filling milk jugs with water. It was tedious, but if I could get them to survive until winter – the rainy season – then they would be fine.
They made it! It rained regularly while I was in Nebraska. The proof is in all the green grass surrounding the trees.
Now I will only have to water them if there is a long dry spell. And I’ll have to make sure the grass doesn’t choke the trees out.
