Where Have I Been?

on December 19, 2009

I’ve been doing this:

Attempting to understand things like this:

“All conifers are woody perennial plants with lateral meristems and secondary growth. The vascular cambium is active early in seedling growth, and just as you learned with angiosperms, produces the secondary xylem and phloem. Secondary xylem in conifers is primarily made up of tracheids and ray parenchyma, and contains no vessels. Some tracheids have thicker walls and are more important for physical support than for water transport. Phloem consists primarily of sieve cells and parenchyma. As in woody angiosperms, the epidermis of the stem is replaced by a periderm.”

Fortunately, things are going pretty darn well.  I can understand it, now I just need to remember it.  

I have a mental list a mile long when I finish up with finals on Monday night.  Making soap, chalkboards, photofinishing, truffle making, quilting, family events, and perhaps some late Christmas cards.  Only 54 hours to go… not that I’m counting or anything…
