Kathy, I bet it's native.  I think that's great!

I think, when I plant the other 2 grafted chestnut trees that I ordered, those will be the last major trees I plant.  I'm about all planted out for fruit trees, too.  Next phase is maintenance and continue training and puttering. On our 2 acres, in the past 5 years, I planted 4 European lindens, one American linden, 5 ginkgo that I grew from seeds, 4 maples - 2 were from volunteer seedlings, 1 dawn redwood, and 1, soon to be 3, chestnuts.  Also a row of about 20 fast growing hybrid cyprus trees, at northern edge of property.  Plus the fruit tree food forest.

The lindens and maples are starting to make a nice statement.  I did some minor pruning last week, to shape them better.  Two of the ginkgos are nice size too.  None if those need deer protection now.  Each large tree gets a solution consisting of 2 liters home brew nitrogen fertilizer, diluted to 2 gallons in watering can, and watered around the drip line, now and again after growth commenses.

Damn, I would have liked those wildflower seeds  :-)

Randy I hope you have seen the last of your frosts!

Just checked the cheerios website for free seeds, but they say they're all out. Thanks anyway, Tom.

I saw on the news how the southeastern states were hit hard with freezes after a mild Feb. caused fruits to blossom early. Here in Indiana, the only thing I lost (so far) is apricots. I'm sorta glad we've had a cool down recently to slow the blooming process. Hopefully my peaches, pears, and apples will make it through.

Daniel, a friend just gave me a chestnut tree that's about four feet tall. It came from the woods behind us so I hope it's a native tree.

Kathy, I'm hoping you get some plums anyway!

Thomas, dogs and kids and snow sounds like a perfect match!

Randy, I know how you feel about birds not using the houses you put up.  I put up a barn owl box and a smaller bird house, neither have been used.  Maybe this year, maybe not!

Ah the unpredictable weather.  We've been getting constant soaking rains.  Today looks sunny but I don't know if I am up to going outside for chores.  Maybe.  Maybe not.  Maybe.

This morning around 8:30 it started snowing. It was slush snow and two hours later the snowflakes are the sizes between a nickle to a half a dollar coin and is accumulating on the ground....and it is twirling. Kids are going to have fun after school is out. My two dogs are outside playing in the snow.

Photo taken through my kitchen window is somewhat fuzzy. Sorry. There are two bluebirds sitting on top. Forsythia in bloom.
