Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Tenacious Trees

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.

    Hooray for survival! It is interesting to think of a full-grown tree and realize that so much could have happened to squash it when it was little – drought, grass, a hungry rabbit, a wayward foot……

    So when is your winter?

    • Brad

      It’s winter now. The daytime temperatures are only in the seventies. At night, it goes into the sixties.

    How exciting to see your hard work working! Go tree! Go brad! It’s great to watch it grow with you!
