Tree seedlings, saplings and shrubs were planted May 3rd through May 5th. The 99 plantings included 25 White Pines, 25 Silver Maple, 25 American Cranberrybush, 5 Hackberry, 5 Basswood (American Linden) and 14 Golden Willow. We ran out of tree tubes and have already had some silver maples munched. I think it is by rabbits. They may recover if I can get them protected soon.
The garden planting was finished May 24th. There is still more tilling and fencing to do. (Asparagus bed and apple trees are not new but are included for reference.) The tomatoes, eggplant and peppers were started from seed indoors several months ago. All other plantings were by seed. More herbs and some tomatoes will be in pots and planters near the house. This is the last year for a ground-level garden. Pots and raised beds only next year.
