Seeds and Ladders

Pine Cones New Years eml
Have a happy New Year from our front yard to you

I’m trying to decide if I really want to pick some of these Norway Spruce cones, heat them in the oven so they open up and allow me to harvest the seeds. Then I will plant them in starter boxes and transplant them around my place. The female cones have about 200+ seeds per cone. I’m sure there are over 50 cones per tree so you see where this simple undertaking could lead. The cones are 25 feet up the tree but I have an old rickety ladder that might reach one rung at a time. Yearly goals are like this I guess. Do I really want to do this? Is my ladder good enough? Some of my many 2019 questions.

So many seeds, so little time. Maybe enough resources? However, these young (as trees go) 35 foot trees each came from one good seed planted in good soil and grew. Seems worth the risk.Pine cones eml

SO… fellow bloggers, speakers and readers: May 2019 be a year where your words are as the cones of the Norway Spruce in my front yard. Housing thousands of precious seeds capable of growing a huge forest. reachable one solid rung at a time as you climb your ladder to the harvest. Whatever your goals may be there is a ladder to climb.

So reach for those cones and take care of those seeds. Plant them in soil you have prepared in us….those you connect with. 

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Luke 8:11


Oh, make sure your ladder is good…is there a verse for that?

  1. I don’t know of a verse about ladders, but this one from Psalm 62:2 seems to apply: “He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. (KJV)
    Have a blessed New Year!

    1. Thanks, and the possibilities are indeed endless. We joke to our grand kids that we live over the river, through the woods, across a large field and over the knoll in Northern Wisconsin (where the deer, bear and other animals peek into our windows). minus 30 below zero country this winter.
