ABC Wednesday - T is for Tubes

T is for Tubes..........

white tubes along the river


We travel this back road each spring in our search for our delicious fiddleheads.

We pass several streams and several farms in this beautiful region.

But upon passing this farm beside a stream, we noticed these strange white tubes following alongside the river's edge.

We couldn't figure out what they could possible be, and decided to take a look inside of them.

Not wanting to be spotted by the landowner, we made it quick and were surprised with our find.

Inside each one was a tree seedling.

Not sure what kind of trees they were protecting, but each one was a single stick.

It's hard to see in the photo, but there are hundreds of these tubes all along the river.

It will be interesting when we go back this spring to see how they are doing.


This is the ninth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  3. The tubes are pretty interesting. I like the landowners idea of protecting the trees. I am fond of trees myself and I always enjoy spotting different ones when I travel by land. :)
