Jezebel’s Placenta Tree

Monday, February 27th, 2006 at 4:14 pm

This weekend the three of us attended the Historical Society’s annual dinner and silent auction. I bid on the big prize, a wheelbarrow filled with organic gardening supplies, plants, tools and a dwarf grapefruit tree from The Garden. Lo and behold I was the winning bidder and decided that I finally had a use for the placenta that’s been in the freezer since Jezebel’s birth. Below is a picture of the tree planted atop it in the strip of lawn just by our sidewalk. It didn’t occur to me until after we finished that some enterprising hound might find that placenta awfully alluring and dig it up tree and all. Here’s hoping that doesn’t happen.
