If you're reading this, you've probably gotten an email from us recently, so thanks for checking out the blog! Now go tell your friends that they should lease a tree, too! I feel like such a salesman when I push the leases, but friends, let me tell you: this is not about making money, and it probably won't make much (if any) for years. Right now, we need irrigation. You would be surprised to find out how much installing irrigation costs! (Okay, I was surprised. You might be completely blase about things like this.)
I'll post the details of our contest soon. For today, I'll finish sending out the irrigation plea emails (one at a time, so they don't get eaten by spam filters), work on starting a facebook page for LDO, and spend a few hours mowing before heading up the hill to work for the night.
Folks are starting to email their ideas about how to reach more people - I love it! Keep it up, Friends of Little Dog!

If you're wondering what we've been up to lately at Little Dog, picture me and Weasley doing elaborate rain dances. Yes, while nearly everyone else in the area is praying for sun, we're praying for rain. The trees are thirsty and we haven't had irrigation installed yet. We're working on it. We've even been approved for some handy government funding to help pay for it. But we still have a few things to work out (little things like paying the wonderful people we want to hire to handle the installation. You'll probably get an email about our new tree lease campaign soon, in fact...).
So if you know any good rain dance moves, send me a video!
