If you got a live Christmas tree this year, consider using it as mulch or planting it in your yard to share with the birds after the holidays. 

On today’s Growing on the High Plains, I share some tips on replanting Christmas trees in your yard. Replace ornaments and trimmings with strings of berries, fruit and bird seed for your feathered friends to enjoy.

Years ago Skip Mancini left the rocky coast of Northern California to return to her roots in the heartland. Her San Francisco friends, concerned over her decision to live in a desolate flatland best known for a Hollywood tornado, were afraid she would wither and die on the vine. With pioneer spirit, Skip planted a garden. She began to learn about growing not only flowers and vegetables, but hearts and minds. If you agree that the prairie is a special place, we think you'll enjoy her weekly sojourns into Growing on the High Plains.
