Stand By Your Tree

Thanks to our son and his wife, Farmer Rick received a wonderfully thoughtful Father's Day gift of this sweet Pomegranate tree. This evening we potted it up into a clay pot and will attend to the tree's needs in the shade until fall, when we will plant it in the Earth.

Today's high was 106 (again!) with a heat index of 109 degrees so we don't want it to go into shock.

We are very glad to see it is drought tolerant!

You'll love that! I remember stealing poms back when I was a kid off of the neighbors tree. They were so good and so messy.

It is a wonderful amazement to me to imagine actually growing pomegranates! What an incredibly cool gift!
