Yes we installed the bottle tree on January 01. Harvested a dead cedar on our property and planted it behind the garden. The first location we wanted to place it, was a bust. I turned out when we regraded for the remodel the old back sidewalk concrete chunks were buried under the new grading and prevented me from digging any deeper than a foot. So we moved over 5-6 foot and I dug a 30 inch deep hole to set the tree into.
As many of you already know I have been recycling dumpster checking for blue bottles, this time of year seems great as lately I've found 1 or 2 bottles a visit.
The bottles are from Riesling, Vodka and Sherry bottles. I was given a gift of two bottles of Sake that I need to drink before using those bottles too. The light blue bottles are Vodka bottles.
