BackYard Engineering with Adolfo Fidel Chavez IV - Extra Support

My son amazes me completely. This afternoon, he was driving me nuts, so i sent him to the backyard to play. He noticed that Carol's father had propped up our Rosemary tree. So Adolfo decided to do the same to my Lemon tree.

These photos are after the fact; he is explaining to us why he did what he did. I was cleaning up in the kitchen and carol was sorting laundry - Adolfo comes in from outside tracking wet and mud and says, "mama, come look what i did." Carol follows him and i started a moist towel to clean up his tracks.

Carol comes back inside, "Killy, come look at what your son" Incredible. Just look at the knot. What is most amazing to me is that Carol's father just propped up the Rosemary with a wooden stick - he did nothing with rope and a stake (and a 2x4 for extra support!)

Sounds like the world is going to be in capable hands when we are are too old to do anything but cause bottlenecks.
