So this was not grown from seed it is probably about 4 years old. Maybe even 5 as they grow so slowly, the trunk is 3/4" thick. It is outside for the winter and hopefully it will take to it's new environment. I have read that this type of conifer is adverse to pollution so half a year in Brooklyn may kill it, but it will go out of town over the summer for a little fresh air. As the longest living thing on the the earth i will keep my fingers crossed for a long life for this high elevation desert transplant.

Top: Bristlecone Pine 3 years old this tree is already dead. Left it with a friend who over-watered it in august when they are done growing and should be dry pretty much through winter. This is my second try. Just ordered from another tree from the place listed. This is the picture they provided, I am expecting something much smaller as these trees grow really slowly. I will not leave this new tree to anyone but an expert to take care of. For the longest living thing on the face of the earth are they prone to death.

Started by: Greater NYC for ChangeSince Hurricane Sandy tore through New York City over two weeks ago, tens of thousands of people in the Rockaways have been living without heat, electricity, or running water -- and now freezing temperatures could threaten their lives.
Unless FEMA steps in right away, children, the elderly, and the sick could be in danger of hypothermia as they are exposed to freezing nighttime temperatures this week. Rockaway residents with no access to heat or electricity urgently need FEMA to set up emergency stations that will provide heat, warm meals, medical care, and a warm place to sleep.
Emergency workers and volunteers are helping storm victims around the clock -- but with the lines of communication down, storm victims in the Rockaways need our help getting their message out.
It's reported that full power may not be restored to the Rockaways until mid-December -- which is why it is so vital that the city dispatch emergency housing and supplies immediately. Please sign this petition right away and share it with everyone you can to help save lives in the Rockaways before it's too late.
This petition was started by Greater NYC for Change, part of a coalition of 45 political and advocacy groups seeking to bring attention to the needs of people in the Rockaways following Hurricane Sandy.

Germinating Cantaloupe Seeds
We bought a cantaloupe from a local farmer's market a few weeks ago, and I saved the seeds. I put the slimy gooey seeds into a bowl, filled it with water, discarded all the ones that floated to the top and just kept the ones that stayed at the bottom of the bowl. Then I dried them on some newspaper. Even after discarding the floaty seeds, I probably still have well over a hundred seeds. I'm definitely not going to plant all of them and I'm sure they will go "bad" in a few years, long before I get around to ever using them all up, either personally or through seed trading. But before I considered allocating garden space to these seeds and/or trading them away, I wanted to make sure that these seeds were good.
So I placed about a dozen seeds on a sheet of wet paper towel, loosely wrapped them up and put the whole thing in a ziploc bag. I left the ziploc part open for ventilation, and placed the bag in my grow box. About five days later, this is what they looked like:
Every single one of the seeds germinated! Not only that, the roots were really starting to develop, with some of them growing through the double-ply paper towel and coming out on the bottom. Since I don't know the variety of the parent cantaloupe, I probably won't plant very many of them. But it's good to know that these seeds are good!
Before you ask, no, I did not save these seedlings, because our indoor grow box is definitely not big enough to grow melons in over the winter. It's always difficult throwing perfectly good seedlings away, but they served their experimental purpose, and went to go rest (permanently) in the compost pile.

I feel like this little tree after not having eaten solid food for 4 and a half days, been on a juice fast.
This was the 4th an extra from Mr. Nature, who as we had some confusion from my order from etsy included this little one as a bonus. It came with hardly any roots just a couple of hair width 1/4 long feeders so was skeptical of its chances but after a couple weeks and all its leaves falling off a bud looks like it will sprout leaves. A real survivor these Chinese elms prove to be. Maybe i should not start counting my chickens until it is out of the woods.
