Met up with my new best friend family this morning...the Schneiders (Bill, Ben, Beth, Anna). Anna is getting her upper learning at UT...so I insisted that she hand feed Benita when they stopped by for a visit after working all day (send me the photo when you get a chance). From a previous post - Bill contacted me a little while back about a water delivery for his waterboxx experiment out here. http://www.groasis.com/page/uk/index.php So nice to meet such a great family all working together on such an interesting project. I trucked out 250 gallons of water while they installed 30 waterboxxes for the big test in the Big Bend. I will be checking the progress for them once a week... Chilopsis linearis, Celtis laevigata reticulate, Acacia farnesiana, Atriplex canescens, Cercidium microphyllum (my favorite), Rhus microphylla, and Ziziphus jujube. Bill gave me two more waterboxx units so now I have 6 to try out at TFL. 71,90,44,0,C
