This may not look like much, but I found it rather exciting.
You see, when we bought our block of dirt back in 1994, a work mate of Mick’s gave us a heap of little tree seedlings, all different varieties. He apparently just enjoyed propagating them. Initially, we had them in pots in our back yard in town, and then when we finally moved out here into our shed and had a water supply, we planted them in rows at the end of the shed.
Most were eventually planted around the yard, but a few stayed where they were initially planted. This oak tree was one of them. It never did a great deal, as most of its life it has been in drought, but this year it thrived.
This is the first time that it has produced acorns. It would be fun to plant one and try to grow the next generation.
