Thirty-something days ago these were seeds in an upside down plastic lunchbox
They were transplanted to polybags in my garden when a few days old and given water every two or three days
Today some of them left home for a new life in the desert

Here they are happily installed amongst their new palm, yucca, acacia, leucaena, poplar & prickly pear friends.
I'm aiming to de-desertify this 1/5 of an acre plot with a plan for 100 trees in place this winter, soaking up any winter rain ready for next summer's dry season.

Very cool. How about an update on your progress?
