Finally, I sit down to write about the plants. I’ve thought all along they deserve writing that concentrates on one hand, the values and observations they’ve given my life while tending them, and the other, some amateur scientific analysis. Upon filing a report, I found it is many reports already, for we’ve tried a wide, daily-evolving array of techniques, and each represents a hypothesis. I believe cataloging them will provide the proper framework for the wealth of thoughtfulness which awaits us. I think you’ll enjoy it very much, and I encourage each of you to consider fostering some plant life.

It's livened up the house considerably to have this new floral life experiment unfolding on our windowsills and tables. We took our bonsai seeds---Japanese Black Pine-- out of the fridge April 1st after cold germination for about a month, and put in a second batch which remained until April 20th. After four seeming starts, we found ourselves down to one tree, which is growing steadily.
