Tree Update

Everybody remember my bacon tree? I planted it for my birthday back in the winter. Here's what it looked like then:

With the drought, we're restricted to outside watering only on Monday and Thursday. Do you know how hard it is to remember to water on those days? I finally had to put an appointment in my calendar to remind me.

Unfortunately, travel doesn't help. Last week, for example, I missed both days. I can't understand why one of the days can't be a weekend day. So, given that, I think the tree is in fair shape, though it definitely has a sunburn.

Truly, it's just the mist from the ocean keeping this thing alive.
