Well guess what! This little orange tree from seed is now an actual tree! It is still alive, and doing very well, save for the periodic bug problem. It occurred to me that having written about it in July 2009 means that I probably planted it about around April, ten years ago!

Happy 10th birthday, little orange tree.

Our Fancy-Pants Pine Tree Hunt

I realized only a few days ago that it has been NINE YEARS since we last cut our own tree for Christmas. That record was finally broken today when my sister, her boyfriend, and I went up Rist Canyon and visited the Christmas Tree Ranch.

Botany

So this thing might just get a little more activity, now that I’ve figured this cool mobile thing out. So yeah. This pic is of an orange tree that I started from seed a few months ago. I didn’t think it would work but then one morning I saw the tiny seedling. Since then, it’s grown from that size to almost two inches high with half inch leaves.
