In Which We Plant a Forest in The Dining Room
One day the girls came back from the park with a bowl full of acorns. Within a few days, some of them began to sprout. I went to the hardware store and asked for a big pot. Well, its winter already here in New England, so we found one, but we needed to climb around in the storage room to find it. No matter. We planted 15 of these acorns and waited for almost a month. But the finally began to emerge. I do not know how many more we will get, or how much more these will grow before they need winter to happen again (will a few weeks in the refrigerator trick them into growing again??) At any rate, I am glad that some of the at least started to grow tall. I figure in only 30 years, or so, we can split them up for fire wood.
