Stone Pines

We spent the afternoon planting Stone Pines. If patient we will have pine nuts to harvest in around 7 years. In addition to adding to our kitchen supplies, the pines will also act as a wind break as they grow, slowing the south westerly winds that blow down from the snow fields.

As usual when doing anything around Auriga our supervisors were watching every move.
