No surprise, there are new high rise apartments in my neighborhood. What was surprising were the tree IV’s (intravenous therapy).

Larger trees are literally receiving intravenous therapy to help them cope with the trauma of being transplanted. I wonder how they will wear winter sweaters in a few months time…

The seeds I planted not too long ago have started to sprout.


While waiting for them to grow, I noticed slugs in the garden. Since it’s a completely enclosed patio garden, I was able to flip on the light at night (slugs are nocturnal) and hunt them down with a pair of garden shears. Happy to report that the seedlings outnumber slugs in the gyopo garden.
