I was going to purchase some and while out walking one day I saw the different shaped leaves and looked them up. Here I have 7 mulberries and I didn't know it. Now I watch and try to get the berries before the birds do. We do start all sorts of trees from seeds and sometimes forget what we planted. This year I found a persimmons tree I must have planted 5-6 years ago.
Time does fly by. 12 years ago my 2 year old son and I planted 2 rows of red and white oaks at the end of our rotation pasture. They were seedlings. Now they range from 5-8 inches in diameter. Couple more years and they will feed the cows and pigs. Learning to stack functions is neat to see in the long run.
