I'm trying this again this year...and not liking the results just yet. Hope to get it looking better today.
We've done book trees for several reasons. They're kinda fun! Less messy! And, From poor soil and several droughts, the fir trees on our property (base camp - not the lab) are almost all a bit yellowish green. I keep thinking I might want to pee
or fertilize next to a little tree several times over the year to make it prettier and greener for use as a Christmas tree. You know, one that needs to be thinned out anyway. Haven't achieved that just yet - it hasn't been a priority.
I'll edit this once (if) I get our book tree picture-worthy later today.
Anybody else make or see a book Christmas tree around?
