My dad said that Lowe's got a fresh shipment of trees for fall planting and I went yesterday to pick up a red maple. It is a hybrid that is fast growing and going to hold off on planting it until the leaves start turning and it enters the dormant state. Either way... I was pretty excited to buy my first tree and can't wait to care for it, prune it, and lay underneath of it in a few years. By the way... speaking of pruning... some of the trees were pruned ridiculous so that the main stem or trunk would split off into two sections. So I had to look through a bunch of trees to find one that had one solid stem to get it to concentrate on growing straight up as fast as possible rather than bushing out right away.
Heat and humidity sticking around the next few days with highs in the
mid-upper 80s and humidity making it feel like the low 90s. Scattered
showers and storms the next few days with the best chance to see the
rain in the afternoon and evenings. Central Ohio is in the Marginal Risk
for severe weather for today with strong winds possible. A cold front
on Saturday will bring more rain followed by cooler temps for Sunday
with more sun. A few dry days early next week then possibly a little
midweek rain. Have a good one!
