food:: garden 2013

My Mother (the ultimate conservationist) thinks that I can take this itty-bitty sapling…

american chestnut

and turn it into a 100 foot tall American Chestnut tree.

Starting in 1904, this breed of tree was inundated with blight and more than 3 BILLION trees died.

Let’s hope I can keep this bad boy alive 😉

For more information on American Chestnuts and why they are so important to our country, read more here and here.

Make today ridiculously amazing my friends.
