I am getting a bit nervous – no, not about the recently purchased Spartanette – but about Sparta’s well-being in light of recent tree-falls. As reported here, this past winter was a doosy. More rain fell than in recent memory and the trees are all laden with foliage and fruit, their branches straining under the load. Sparta is parked under two intermingling trees, a massive walnut and a sizable plum. My trailer is constantly peppered with falling fruit – not the most comforting of bedtime sounds. More disturbing though, is what happened to another tree just east of me. She lost a massive branch which could’ve crushed Sparta like a can of Coors. You can see from the photos below. All this leads me to conclude that I best hurry up or maybe pull my trailer out from under the shade of these now menacing giants.
