Day 1

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAToday we started the tree planting project on our land. Peter showed us how to dig a hole much deeper than the length of the root. This way the tree can quickly form a deeper tap root in the coming winter months, and have a better chance to survive the next dry summer season. Today we planted thirty tiny cork oaks, only one year old. They will take about 25 years to grow into a big tree. Fortunately birds and other animals have also planted trees over the years, like the young cork oak in this picture.
