New York: Sean Justice's Ginkgo Tree seeds try and it sprouted!

(excerpts from considering pictures | sean justice > open journal)

"I'm up again. Third try. Hiroshi's ginko seeds are in the dirt this week.

A favorite project from this past year is Hiroshi Sunairi's Tree Project. I've documented two previous attempts at growing a seed from the hibaku trees in Hiroshima -- the trees that survived the atomic bomb. Unfortunately, both of those attempts ended badly (view those posts by clicking on the keyword "tree project").

But with Hiroshi's encouragement, I'm going for another attempt. This time I've planted ginko seeds."

"Wow — perhaps? — I can't believe there's a sprout already. But here it is. I'm skeptical, however. It might not be a gingko. What is it supposed to look like?"
