how to plant trees where it’s too wet
Thursday, May 8, 2008 3:30 pm I went across the beaver felled bridge! I haven’t been across there since about September. I carried my camera in my hand so that if I slipped I could fling it to the other side. Around my neck it would go in with me. I moved the tall yellow dead grass that had fallen over and was covering the trunk of the log as I didn’t want it to cause the bridge to rot. It was so nice to be in the marsh woods fen again! I love it in there. All the trees are growing out of stumps. It’s the neatest place ever! I wanted to plant some trees around my tipi, but didn’t want them waterlogged…but I got the most wonderful idea! I can put down rotting logs and then plant trees in them! What a brainstorm that was! I lay apricating in the sunshine for awhile, then came back across to my tipi. A few sunflower seeds were on the ground beside the feeder, empty, so I figure a bird has discovered the feeder. I put another small pile of seeds in there. I also walked handfuls of sunflower seeds to make the beginning cross for my labyrinth down there. Sedge Meadow labyrinth. The ground isn’t level because the sedges grow in clumps which are a few inches higher than the ground.
