Re: pine trees/bamboo

It's a little embarrassing to be unable to do something that looks so simple when you watch an expert. He told me I picked a difficult stone, hard, thick flat edges with "no platform". He's a lay conservationist, preservationist, gardener, friend to the NimiPu (NezPerce Indians), who makes his living as a self taught carpenter. Very capable old "hippie" dude. We were just to young to be in the middle of all that in the 60s, but he bought into the lifestyle in the early 70s. Still raises much of what he eats, hunts & fishes. I respect him for a lot of the choices he's made. My little brother has grown up to be ethically & morally sound. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Lynda Young" <lyoung@grindertaber.com>

Read this with a smile, Judy. My husband is a flint knapper, too, although he's not into a heavily as he once was. I've always been amazed at what he
can produce from a piece of chert and completely inept at it, myself.  Is
your brother an anthropologist?

I ordered some bamboo from Forest Farm yesterday, Fargesia rufa "Green
Panda", Phyllostachys dulcis (will live in a pot), also Magnolia Sieboldii,

Cornus Rosabella, C. varigata (shrub),  blueberries- Northcountry & red
The Yews are all in. I hope to plant the Kinnickinnick, the other
blueberries and some annuals soon. Ed built up the west side & wants to fill

in behind the railroad ties. I'm not anxious to get small stuff in until
he's done walking & hauling over it. When the Forest Farm order gets here,
I'll have to get busy.
Today I went to the Renn Fair in Moscow Idaho & ran into my brother. He was
demonstrating arrowhead knapping & helping anyone who wanted to try one. I
found a pretty piece of green chert, but found it takes more hand strength
than I have. He was really good with the little kids.
