Day 31 - Our cloth diapers and solar-powered clothes dryer!
I'm not sure if this makes us green, or white trash.
Day 31 - Ruth with her fig tree.
When I was growing up, both my brother and I had trees that were "ours." I had a magnolia outside my window, and I think my brother's was a Japanese Maple in the front yard. I seem to remember my parents saying that they were planted the year we were born, but I may be misremembering - help? Anyway, I thought it was a nice sentiment.
Plus, figs = yum.
Ruth's is a Texas Everbearing (aka Brown Turkey) Fig. It's supposed to grow 40' tall and 60' wide, which I figure will take a couple of years. For those of you who don't know her, though, Melissa is 28' tall, so it's already got a good start!
