k.h. your gson is fortunate to have you!

Randall I saw those comments too. The ones that most sppealrd to me were, leave the tree there and be more creative about the building. Still, if they put up a carillon or monument, it might cost as much. Im glad they didnt vut it down, anyway.
Comment by Randall Smith on Monday
Moving a tree that size is amazing. My first thought was "Great--they're saving that tree." Then, as I read further, I could see why some people would object. It's like the space program(s)--to some, is that money well spent?
I also enjoyed seeing the different varieties of squash. I harvested 3 kinds.
Daniel, you really didn't have to explain yourself, but I'm glad you did. I was just curious. Sometimes, I get a little brash--not always good.

Daniel, you give me the greatest hope for my gson. I know he's young, and hasn't faced nearly the challenges older gays have, but if his path is easier because of brave people like you... You make me proud!
As an aside, I was pro equal rights way before l knew about my boy.

So early to think about next year! And I amdoing ut too. I might put in a half dozen types of squash just for novelty.

Come to think of it, I grew at least that many types this year. For summer squash,I lomed the yellow one best. For winter, I like the butternut best.

I moved a couple if 7 foot tall trees, which of course is nothing remotely like that humongous one. Its like moving a house!

Daniel, that list of winter squash is interesting, and from all over the world. Going to give some a try

Very interesting article on moving a gigantic ancient tree.  It also had some good information that I may be able to use.  

I've heard many times that the roots only go out to the drip line.  This article and others that were pointed to, say that's false.  They go out 2 to 4 times the diameter of the drip line.  That's good to know.

Moving a gigantic, ancient tree.  npr.

 

I hope it lives a long life after the move.  It's hard to believe such a huge and old tree would survive.  The root loss will be significant - roots extend far beyond the branches' drip line.  Still, it looks like they did the best they could.  I'm very impressed with the effort and investment - huge!

I was trying to be nice about the orchids.  I think they are hideous.  But - every ugly child needs someone to love them  :-)

 

I was looking at photos of squash.  herehere.   I often see the lumpy, warty, goofy looking ones as "beautiful".  I think they are beautiful too.  My grandmother would have disagreed.  So beauty is in the eyes of the beholder!

Daniel, thanks for the compost fights climate change. I missed it in my Friday mail. I don't care for the artificial color in flowers, either. Nature does just fine. Your experiences of harassment should never have happened and bullying and harassment just has to stop. You paid a terrible price for someone else's ignorance and meanness. 

Randy, you must have a heavy duty tiller. Oh! but the worms and beetle will think them totally right. Your soil will reward you next spring. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on Sunday

Daniel - I totally agree. I love orchids, but those dyed colors are grotesque. It's UNNATURAL. People who dye them will go to hell.
