Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

{Our Golden Live Oak has LOTS of Acorns!}

Our Golden Live Oak 'Quercus Virginiana Grand View Gold' has  Lots of Acorns! 
Live oak means EVERGREEN! Look at these photos. Anyone out there interested in some, for growing such a Golden Live Oak out of them, please contact me as we have several available. They are very rare and we did pay for this tree in January of 1996, $ 150.00 + $ 30.00 shipping & handling from Louisiana. This is the 1st year ever, that yielded so many... We do have already several young trees and don't need any more.

  • Very special acorns and even in winter the leaves are GOLDEN!


  • Look at its tip...


  • Beautiful Acorn Cupule...


  • Our harvest of 'Oak Nuts'... just gathered from underneath the tree.


  • Of course we left several for the squirrels too!


  • This is me in the spring, in front of our Golden Live Oak 'Quercus Virginiana Grand View Gold'


  • View from our balcony in the spring. Two tuxedo girls relaxing in the shade. Sasha girl to the left and Spicy her adopted sister.

  6. Liebe Mariette,
    herzlichen Dank für Deine lieben Wünsche!
    Ich schau' trotzdem immer mal kurz in die Blogs. Nur allzu lange geht im Augenblick nicht.

    Diese Eicheln sind ja wunderschön! Für welchen Zweck erntet Ihr sie? Ich kenne Eichelkaffee daraus.

    Wir haben auch zwei Eichen im Waldgarten mit allerdings nicht so schönen Früchten, jedoch auch mit unterschiedlichen. Der eine hat schmalere, der andere ganz rundliche dicke Eicheln.

    Ein teurer Baum! Weiß gar nicht, ob es solche Eichenbäume hier bei uns gibt.

    Chic - das Grün steht Dir ausgezeichnet!

    Herzliche Grüße
    Sara

  8. Liebe Mariette,
    das ist ein schöner Baum, aber die Eicheln sind wirklich aussergewöhnlich schön. Wie mit Spitze umrandet. Schön ist auch, dass er eine tolle Herbstfärbung hat und die Blätter wohl lange dran bleiben. Ein würdiger Hintergrund für dich!
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  9. Hi Mariette,
    I love acorns...As a kid we would go walking and pick them up along the way. Your tree is doing really well.
    What a beautiful photo of you!
    Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

  10. Quest'albero è davvero molto bello....mi ricordo che da bambina c'era un boschetto di querce accanto alla mia scuola, ed io vi andavo spesso a cogliere le ghiande...quanti scoiattoli si nascondevano tra i rami, e che colori in autunno!
    Un bacio e a presto Alessandra

  11. Hallo Mariette,

    Dat is wel eenapart soort!! Mooi! Wat ga je er mee doen?

    Bij ons eten de eekhoorns geen eikels, de soorten die hier groeien zijn niet goed voor ze!!

    Liefs Thea ♥

  14. Oh your beautiful wonderful looking weather Mariette! Glorious! How I would love it if I could grow acorns here, but alas, it is much too cold for such things.

    Thank you for sharing your sunshine!
