Continued Cacao Growth

The cacao trees are still growing and really leafing out well.  I keep telling people I'm going to repot the plants soon but still haven't gotten around to it yet.

These trees of course are still the same trees that I started from seeds late mid last year from seeds collected from a fresh cacao pod I received from Sander Wolf from the Dallas Chocolate Festival.  We had the privilege of helping out with the festival last year and hope to be able to do the same this year.  After the festival though last year Sander was giving some of us the cacao pods that were used as decoration at the festival and of course I couldn't pass that up.

This year marks 10 years of the Dallas Chocolae Festival which will be held September 7 & 8 with a VIP party on September 6.  Tickets will be on sale starting August 1.

This year, being a milestone, they are holding an anniversary dinner commemorating the original chocolate dinner where "seeds" of the Dallas Chocolate Festival were first planted.  Thinking about taking these lovely plants back to the event to show just how much they can grow in just a year.  The event has grown so much since the first time we attended.
