    My DCO seedlings from the tree in my yard as of yesterday---6/21/19. I've pulled the acorns off the roots so maybe that will keep chipmunks out of them. This fall I will "dump the pot" and replant the seedlings bareroot in their final spot.

    Y'all check this out. After a really bad drought in May and early June we started getting some pretty good rains. This DCO decided to put on a bunch of new growth, bloom, and set acorns. This was made July 6. It already has acorns on it from the spring.

    2nd growth was as impressive as first growth here. They have a solid 18” the 2nd time around.

    I guess DCO's just do not like SE Bama. I have about a dozen that have pretty much sat at 3-4 feet tall for several years. Fairly well taken care of and fertilized. They just do not grow.

    I’ve been using my dwarf chinkapins to grow trailing wild beans for a double food source.

    You sent me some of those bean seeds years ago but as my clearcut grew up the trees shaded out all those sites.

    There are some small trailing wild bean varieties that grow well in the shade. I have them all over on the creek bottom in heavy shade and deer love them.
