Through Hot and Through Cold

Baby (tree), it’s cold outside!


Are we overprotective parents?

I ask because we seem to put a lot of effort into making sure our landscaping doesn’t die.

Not so easy during winter in our part of the country, where heat waves can alternate with hard freezes. This week we’ve been in deep-freeze mode, which is what we call it when the temp stays below freezing for a couple of days.

And so we put puffy winter vests on our little sapling Chinese Tallow tree.

Aren’t they cute?

Thanks for reading,
Jan

  1. Keep an eye under the little vests because there are a lot of creepy crawlies that would find that a perfect home. Mmmmm shelter and tender baby bark to munch on! Yikes!
