Re: My goodness, sabals are tough.
Thanks for the compliments Stan. Although land in my particular location was too expensive (by my rural Oklahoma standards) we still came in at much less than even 1/2 of a million.
We don't have good palm growing weather or any beaches around, but at least it's cheap to live here.
I've still got tons of work to do around here, but I really hope to have this little 5 acres looking like a woodland Park before too long. My biggest obstacle is just that any ground that was cleared when we built is a rough reddish clay that is more rocks than dirt. You might be able to tell in these pics looking behind the house:
So instead of digging holes, I dig up rocks. Then I can plant in the holes left after I've removed the rocks.
The rocks are really nice though. We have a rock skirt around the exposed foundation on the lower side of the house. We are only using rock from right here on our property.
Kano ako, Pinoy kayo?
