Little Oak Tree

Puzzled.  Mike, are you saying that there is scientific evidence that acorns 'planted' by jays and squirrels grow into the best trees, and is this because they select the biggest and best acorns?

Does this evidence record all acorns planted by the birds/animals, or only the ones that germinated and grew?

Do humans not 'select'  the acorns that they plant? 

Or have I misunderstood your point?

New Year gardening resolutions

Mine is to keep better records - I've got a gardening notebook, so why don't I write things down immediately rather than stick labels and seedpackets in a box on the bookcase to write down later .... it hardly ever happens

Good morning KEF - sorry, no tea brewed here yet - that doesn't happen until OH is awake and he's not working today so still in the Land of Nod, but I'll put the kettle on for you

9pm, that's when my tired and sleepy happens too

Yes please Fidget

You weren't there when I posted or I'd have made you one

Good morning all    Hope you're catching some zzzzzzzzzs now Pdoc. 

I think the problem is that we don't get as much exercise in the winter - consequently the 'tired and sleepy' hormones don't happen so much. 

I have some visits planned this afternoon - Aged Ps first then late afternoon I'm making one of my occasional visits to a young lady who lives in sheltered accomodation and taking her Christmas present.  She's very excited at the moment as a lad she was at school with is moving into the complex today - he was always very popular with the girls
