Every year I try to sprout some acorns to replant & give back for what the land has provided me. Past couple seasons I wasnt able to do so for several reasons. Every year I say to myself, if I had the extra money I'd just buy some saplings..... Well I was at work doing it again back in December. Staring at the oaks from sunbright farms (http://sunbrightfarms.com/) when my supervisor walks up behind me with my kick back from the last promotion we ran. It was enough money on a prepaid visa, to cover 8 saplings & shipping. Ohh the decisions......was that fate or just $hit luck I happen to be on that site at that time. Not one to mess with karma. I ordered them immediately. Im my parts, the game commission's sawtooth oak orchards draw deer in at predictable times, even while all the red & white oaks are dropping. So..... I ordered 6 of them -3 standard sized & 3 gobbler sized (smaller acorn) to appeal to all the critters. I also ordered 2 nuttall oaks. I picked nuttalls since they drop late season when the deer need it. sawtooth oaks start dropping in late september through october, in my area.

Now when I ordered them back in december I could have had them shipped as early as january. but picked march 11th instead. Now Im thinking it was to early. What do you all think? To cold to plant in march?
