Updated pictures from yesterday of our “grove”
3rd growing season group
2nd growing season group
We changed up our planting style a bit between the 2 years.
First year, we followed directions from the foundation. Have seen some success.
Last year due to Covid, we got a deep plastic pot, put a bundle of tree tubes in the pot, then filled the pot and tubes with dirt (used the tubes to keep the roots separated - basically a modified bare root seeding process). Then babied them in Texas weather until we were able to plant. This grouping is a year behind the others, and for the most part have caught them.
Per our experiment, we believe we will continue this newer process in the future. Unfortunately, we did not get any Chinquapin nuts for 2021.
