When the snow finally melts, I will plant these beautiful Ring Box Trees.
In the middle of June I will harvest the smaller Ring Boxes that will be
hanging from the branches. Below you can see some of last years crop.

As tradition would have it … Sorry I’m Two days late

Happy April Fools Day

Odie: I’m glad that you are still planting and harvesting.

Nice to see the fruits of your labors.

Is that where you’ve been all this time? Man we all thought you got kidnapped or something worse! All this time and you’ve been growing boxes. Nice ones too I might add. Glad you’re back Odie.

I have visited your web site and seen The products from all your trees! Keep on ‘planting’ But remember to take time to smell the blosems. ( I was going to say smell the LJ’s until I thought about it a second time and my sinus’s plugged up.)

Thanks All … ah but have any of you grown some of your own ? I know I gave a few of you planting instructions. I’ve been busy , far too busy. We are scaling back on shows from 10 to 6 this year. We had to remind ourselves we are “Retired”. We’ve cut back to one retailer (who knows how long they’ll last) and don’t want to add any.

Last summer we had a family “emergency”, and were unable to meet some of our commitments. This year we’re taking some of the pressure off and we’re even going to throw a vacation in the motorhome in May. So, as one of you said, “we’re taking time to smell the blossoms”, (of the ring box trees).

Thanks guys … now get out there and plant some boxes !
