The Spring Craziness Commences

This afternoon I lifted Canaan firs from a Missouri gravel bed in preparation for planting a field experiment tomorrow. A Missouri gravel bed is basically a box full of gravel and sand that you grow plants in. It makes an excellent holding area or overwintering spot.

I decided to prepare 1000 firs for transplanting today (that leaves another 1000 for next week). So 1000 Canaan firs are currently packed in boxes, chilling in a cooler, oblivious to the fact that they will be planted in a hostile field tomorrow.

Hours later there are fewer firs.

Today was a long day and tomorrow might be even longer. ‘Tis the season.
