Today I dug up a little sassafras plant from the woods behind my house, and transplanted it to my yard. I've wanted one for a long time, but they are notoriously hard to transplant. This particular plant looks sturdy, and was right on the edge of the trail, where it might get damaged, so I figured I'd give it a chance at my house. We'll see if it takes. Sassafras is a cool plant. It has a variety of leaves - it is sometimes called the "gloves and mittens plant", and besides, the name is really cool. Say it like it's a curse word - it really lets out stress! (Kind of makes me think of Yosemite Sam and "sufferin' succotash!")


  1. Is a wonderful plant! In Portugal we use to planted in gardens. The good is, a very resistant plant.

    Bless you.

  2. I bet your garden and yard are fantastic Sasha!


Thanks for being patient - I don't moderate comments every day, but I will get to it!
