I thought I wasn't supposed to get the Arbor Day Foundation trees until October, but the two maples arrived on Thursday. I was supposed to soak the roots for three-six hours before planting, but on Friday things got really busy and I didn't get the sugar maple planted until about 30 hours later. I got the red maple planted this morning. I hope they survive. I managed to dig both three-foot deep and three-foot wide holes myself, with the help of prodigious amounts of water. I'm not sure whether to expect the ten blue spruces and the Sharon rose now or in October.
I may try to get my computer set up tomorrow. If I don't, however, I can check in from Andy's laptop. See y'all on the flip side.
