There are some interesting things going on at the little farm we're renting. The landlord has given permission for the Watershed Coalition people to plant trees to prevent erosion on the edge of the river.

The list of plants consists of many different species that don't mind seasonal inundation, such as willows ( salix ), poplars and red osier dogwood.

It will be interesting to see how they grow here, as the soil is very sandy and well drained, with a base of about twenty feet of large cobbles left by the river as it flooded for the past century at least.

They are providing stakes, wire cages and drip irrigation to protect the little trees from deer and sheep predation, and the water will come from the outside tap at our rental house.

If you have some plans for the spring and summer ahead, I hope you'll share them and your inspiration.

Share it on the rustic crafts page - scroll down to the bottom of the page, where you'll find a place to write your story and add up to four pictures of your project.
