Something grow all the time

Hi all,

I have been doing some development for us and thought you might like to see the progress of our trees (and our tree owners)

The Trees of Finca Leola

Enjoy

Yep, it is a lot of work. I do believe we have in excess of 120,000 trees now. The growth is really amazing.

Just thought you all would like to see the pictures.

You are more than welcome anytime. Joe and Heather are moving down soon and doing bike tours I do believe (that is their plan).

Costa Rica really is a great place to visit, and if you have the right mindset, a great place to live too.

The 2008 teak and acacia saplings at 3.8 months are so adorable. But wait... trees grow? I was hoping to be sent pictures of cute little trees for years to come. What if I want some more cute little trees to show up on my personalized page next year? They'll have grown out of that cute stage by then.

You probably mentioned this before, but how much rain do you get there a year?

Pretty much that. I expect just about every thread in foo to turn into something either sex or fecal related. How about more sex and less fecal matter?
