Rainy Earth Day Planting

Planting on a slippery hillside

Young planters get into the swing of things

Not the best start to the planting season but about 30 people showed up to plant trees and shrubs at Riverdale Farm. There was the usual mix of native trees and shrubs, namely Sugar Maple, Elderberry, Red-osier Dogwood, Alternate-leaved Dogwood, and Staghorn Sumac. The digging was easy so it went pretty fast despite the weather.

On an administrative note, this is Don Watcher post #100. I started this blog back in July last year. That means, I've averaged about 2.5 posts per week. The blog is now getting an average of 110 visits per week. I think that's a pretty good start! I haven't done any advertising other than word of mouth, so if you like what you see here, please pass the link to your friends.
