Treelet report

The last time we looked at Baby Sweetgum, ten days ago, we had a foot or so of trunk-in-the-making to look at. There's not much change in its appearance, so no new picture, but in a week and a half the treelet has grown a little more than half a foot: height is now 19½ inches. I'm not quite sure at which point the term "sapling" kicks in — Wikipedia suggests one meter in height and 7 cm in stem diameter, which seems a little early to me — but if we go by one meter, we're halfway there now.
