So, with all my planting lately, and trying to get our “dwarf citrus” to grow… I’ve been thinking a lot about how things grow, and kind of comparing that to my other “obsession” — my kids. It’s amazing how with ALL things you have to put a great deal of effort into the initial growth phase, and then — as the plant gets bigger, you don’t have to water as often or tend to it. Every plant needs a pruning every now and then… but it’s just a reminder to be vigilent with my “little plants” while they’re small and hopefully some day they’ll be “gigantic oak trees” with little seedlings of their own.
