May 2nd to May 7th went by in a flash. I was still planting the remaining birch into early May and delighted to start back on the oak trees. It was a very cold start to May which has helped keep the oaks dormant. I don’t know why but I had thought we had been gifted 50 oaks, along with the 100 birches from the Tree Council of Ireland. But after planting 15 oak, and going back to the bag to take out more I realised we have over 100 oak too. 106, the six being very small little ones perfect for ninja planting. That leaves me going into Week 8 with 90 oak still to plant when I thought I had 35 left. It is going to be a busy week!
