Thanks to everyone who entered the seed giveaway! I'll be sending the seeds out soon, although with Thanksgiving this week I may be delayed a few days. But keep an eye out!
I've been trying to spend a lot of time at David's house recently. Mine is freezing, but his rental home is nice and toasty! The tree has sort of leveled out it seems. It's trunk is fairly thick but I didn't get to measure last night. The bark is mostly black and has this matte coloring, like light that hits it just gets sucked in. The red coloration is higher up now, a few inches over my head. Just one big spot, facing the house. Strangely, no leaves yet. Just bark and branches and a few of those seeds. Professor seemed to be quite pleased as well, so looks like an A is in my future!
