Eat (Plant) Your Greens


Not to worry. There is another refrigerator that actually has food.

Two dozen Douglas fir and red cedars, now planted in our hillside pasture (after lots of trips and down that hill, yesterday).

I didn't realize that was how to store firs :) Perfect weather for planting wasn't it?

Sounds like a forest in the making. The sunshine has been great...loving it!

I love it - a beer fridge that also stores baby trees! I need another fridge for plant stuff, plus a freezer for berries and such. Someday. That sounds like quite a forest you're starting! I love Doug Firs but man, they can be scary when they topple. You know you have to have someone thin the branches every now and again once they get big, right, so the wind can get through? My folks found out the hard way that if you don't keep doing that, down they come in a big windstorm... I guess it takes a few decades to get to that point, so you're probably in the clear. :)

Are you sure? Don't those Douglas First grow to be a mile high?

My vegetable garden (or house) shouldn't have too much to worry about for many years! We'll still enjoy them as young trees for some variety on the otherwise grassy hill. As much as I hate to see the sun disappear, the rain in the early days for these trees is very important (sorry!).

This is the original fridge to the house, but has been in the garage since the prior owners. I didn't think we'd need it, but I'm surprised how much we have used it.
